And very hard, if I recall correctly. Ice Climber would be good for about five minutes of nostalgic fun, but I'm guessing that's about it. Never played Kirby. I was hoping Pro Wrestling would make today's all-NES release list. Question: is there any value in making weekly posts about the new VC releases? I would have just added it to the Wii thread, but I couldn't add a reply after my own message. Promote this thread!

But the ones I start all end up flopping, so I quit.

I always had friends telling me how great it was, but I never picked it up for whatever reason. This will be 500 points well spent. And yes, keep the threads a'comin'.

AIM: # 7 Posted on 12.2.07 1711.57 Reposted on: 12.2.14 1714.28 when I was younger, we'd brag about who had beaten the hardest video game. I usually trumped everyone with either Kid Icarus or Rush 'n' Attack. Picking up Kid Icarus is a no-brainer.

Be warned though as the game is very hard, especially the final level. I think I remember using the Game Genie to beat it the first time around. And yes, please keep doing these threads about the VC if you can. I don't get to the Wii every night/week, but now I'm making a beeline over there very soon. Kid Icarus and Wii-Play coming out...I love you Nintendo!

AIM: # 9 Posted on 14.2.07 1007.17 Reposted on: 14.2.14 1007.18 I'm still waiting for Blaster Master to be released on the VC. I don't know if it will be, because it was a Sunsoft game and I don't even know if they are still in business.

I haven't tried it - I saw there was something this morning, but I left it because I find the blue glow so delightful - but apparently it's a new channel where you get to vote on polls submitted by other users. It sounds so stupid and yet I have a feeling that I'll think it's great.

It's a fun little diversion. It will be interesting to see what kinds of poll questions end up getting approved. Beware though, for some reason it eats up 160 blocks of memory. That's kinda huge for a feature that hasn't proven its usefulness yet.

AIM: # 12 Posted on 15.2.07 0939.40 Reposted on: 15.2.14 0954.54 Man, I downloaded Kid Icarus this morning and, while I remember not being very good at it, I was assuming that it was because I hadn't played it since I was eight. Nope, that fucker is hard. My hope is that eventually we'll see the Everybody Votes Channel used to gage interest in possible Virtual Console titles. Right now, though, it is crazy pointless. EDIT: Adding the first paragraph made the second paragraph make no sense, so fix it I did. (edited by OlFuzzyBastard on 15.2.07 1040)

Anyway, I'd like to state that the British are jerks for getting Excitebike before us. I love Excitebike. I think New Adventure Island is currently a UK-exclusive as well.

I don't know if it will be, because it was a Sunsoft game and I don't even know if they are still in business. According to this site (wii.qj.net) Sunsoft is a VC supporter. I think Sunsoft is still in business in Japan.

Also, I suck at Kid Icarus. Sad discovery.
