I have no problem with the lack of Wii games coming out, because I'm still working through MP3: Corruption. BTW, what are these friend vouchers, and what do they do exactly? And why haven't any of you guys sent me one yet? :-p
I played some sort of early football game on the NES, but I don't think it was that game. So I won't be buying any of these VC games.

OMG! NES Play Action Football! I had that on the NES. There were 8 or 10 teams in it. I used to play as San Francisco (they had Montana at QB, and Young as his backup). Tapping the A-button gave your guy an acceleration boost, but it made him ridiculously tired. So I would run with Montana until he gotten taken out of the game, and then do the same thing with Young. That San Francisco team was great. Craig and Rathman at RB, Dwight Clark (I think) at TE. It was useless passing to the right receiver (who you couldn't see on screen), though; he'd always be covered. But the left receiver and the TE were wide open. Once you figured out the game, it was very easy though. I could win with any team against any other team.
Originally posted by The King of KeithIt was ambitious, but it was no Tecmo Super Bowl.
Has anyone purchased Play Action Football yet? Did they erase the players names as they did in Tecmo Bowl?
Oh now I hope they do Super Play Action Football. I had forgotten about that game, but it was crappy/awesome! You could do NFL as well as college teams in that one if I remember right. And once you figured it out, you could stuff every single play and block every single punt. I recall winning every game by at least 100-0.

If I try spelling that last one out as one word, it deletes the part that starts with the "i" and ends with the "e." So ignore the spaces.
Joystiq apparently took Labour Day off, so this week's post represents my best guesses. Apologies for whatever's wrong. VC/WW Japan (last Tuesday) - Taikou Risshiden (Super Famicom, 800 points) - Earthworm Jim 2 (Mega Drive, 600 points)
