Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Wait.. if I'm correct in assuming the countdown in the title is in seconds, then it's only 15 hours until Earthbound :D

    54,716 seconds / 60 seconds per minute = 911.933 minutes
    911.93 minutes / 60 minutes per hour = 15.1989 hours

    </nerd>

    I don't think you can count yourself a nerd if you're also retarded.

    Not sure what I said that made you think I'm retarded; unless you thought I being serious. I just thought it was funny his made up number wasn't actually very large at all. :P

    but you are being serious.

    Serious about Earthbound coming out in "15 hours" that is.

    Meh, nevermind. It was a joke, and apparently one that wasn't very funny to anyone but myself.

    So, uh, Virtual Console and all that.

    BUBBLE BOBBLE® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): BUBBLE BOBBLE's release in 1986 introduced the two bubble dragons, Bub and Bob, and brand new play mechanics, with players defeating enemies by trapping them in bubbles and then popping them. Although the puzzle-action game can be beaten by clearing all 100 rounds, it also contains secret elements such as not being able to get the "true ending" in single-player mode; hidden commands that lead to secret rounds; and a ton of different items. These elements are some of the game's most memorable and important features. Each round even has different air currents that are not visible, so bubbles rise in unpredictable patterns. Aspects like forcing players to understand and utilize these different patterns while playing help make this a revolutionary game that is fun to play anytime.

    Light Crusader™ (Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone-Animated Violence, 800 Wii Points): Each day, more good townspeople of Green Row have been mysteriously disappearing, and beleaguered King Weeden summons the knight Sir David to investigate. Armed with his wits and his sword, Sir David must find the cause of this strange evil and save the citizens of Green Row before things get any worse. Take the role of the brave knight in this action RPG and get to the bottom of the mysteries of Green Row as you fight enemies, solve puzzles and use your best combination of brains and brawn to save the kingdom.

    TOP HUNTER (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and older-Cartoon Violence, 900 Wii Points): Take on the role of either Roddy or Cathy, bounty hunters in this side-scrolling action game set far in the future when humans have colonized space. But all is not well: Space pirates called the Klaptons are making their way through the galaxies, wiping out peaceful settlements along their path. This disgraceful behavior leads to them having a price on their heads, so now Roddy and Cathy must travel through four distinct worlds on a mission to defeat their leader, Captain Klapton. Both characters have retractable arms-used to grab enemies or other objects in the scenery-that can then be thrown at others to destroy them. Also, be on the lookout for rings or levers to pull, as this might reveal special bonuses. Further adding to the mix, the game uses a unique system where the action happens on two planes, with the player switching between them at will. Can you prove yourself worthy of the Top Hunter name and help save the universe?

    Happy New Year.

    I'll probably get Bubble Bobble for the sake of nostalgia, but can anyone give me an opinion on Top Hunter? I remember seeing it in a magazine way back when and it looks kinda fun on video (sort of looks like a combination of Runstar and Metal Slug).

    Pffft. Happy New Year indeed. Buncha junk (or at least stuff I have never heard of before) for this gamer. I understand Bubble Bobble is probably a big deal for some people, but I never got into it as a kid.

    And, more than a year after I thought we'd get it for sure, still no Vectorman in NA.

    It's a small thing, but I wish they could still have the license to all of the old time names. Everyone remembers Bo Jackson, but sometimes it's a struggle to bring up everyone's names.

    I have 2200 Wii points. Some games I'm considering that I'm pretty familiar with:

    Breath of Fire 2
    Donkey Kong Country 3
    Wave Race 64
    Pokemon Snap
    Super Mario World

    Games I'm considering that I'm not as familiar with:

    Sonic 3 (is it any better than #2?)
    Shining Force (I enjoyed the sequel, is #1 any good?)
    Alien Soldier
    A good TG-16 or TGCD game (only one I have is Bomberman)

    Wii games that I already have:
    Zelda: Link to the Past
    Beyond Oasis (didn't care for it much)
    Starfox 64
    Mario 64
    Sin & Punishment
    Super Metroid
    DKC2
    Bomberman
    Gunstar Heroes

    another question: i played metroid zero on the GBA, that was a remake of Metroid 1 and Super Metroid is Metroid 3, correct?

    is he really saying "get the puck"?

    I always thought it was "shoot the pass", though I know that doesn't really make sense.

    my new favorite thing about that game is that when a player yells from getting knocked over it's the same voice/tone as the announcer, like he's yelling as commentary on what's happening. at least that's how I think of it to enjoy myself even more.

    Yes. Zero Mission. Metroid 2 is the only one of the original 3 that hasn't been re-released or remade on another console.

    Until Nintendo releases another set of VC games next Monday, I though I might take advantage of this thread to ask a related question:

    Apart from Bomberman '93, are there any other 5-player games (or even more players, if possible) available on the VC, right now? Are there any other consoles apart from the TG-16 / PC-Engine that supported more than 4 players on one console

    Are there any other TG-16 / PCE games that supported 5 players that might conceivably be released on the VC?

    I just had a huge blast every time I played 4- and 5-player Bomberman on my Wii (once I figured out how to get the GC controller to read as a 5th controller!) and I'd love to get a few more games.

    The more, the merrier!

    Hey guys. I'm in need of some help. I'm hoping one of you may have run into this problem before.

    Anyway, my problem is that all my SNES and Genesis games don't show up when I choose to play them. I'll select the game channel, click start, and then the screen just sits there black. Forever. Oh, the game is working though, cause you can hear the in-game music, and when I hit the Home button the game screen appears in the background. But as soon as you hit Home again to go back to the game, the screen reverts to blackness.

    I figured maybe all my VC games were busted, but nope. My N64 games work without a hitch.

    Anyone heard of this (and possibly a fix) before? Or am I going to have to call the big boys at Nintendo? :P This sucks so much. I just downloaded Super Metroid, DK2, and SF2 last night. What a time for this to happen. :(

    What kind of TV are you using? That is typical of a newer TV that can't handle the low resolution video mode that the old games use. On the VC, TG-16 and N64 games do not use this mode.

    If you're running the Wii in 480p, try changing it to 480i and see what happens.

    I've got a year old 27" ViewSonic LCD. So I took your advice and went into my Wii's resolution settings, and discovered that it was already set on 480i. Just for the hell of it I set it to 480p and tried things out. Now everything works. I don't understand it, but I'm just happy I can play things now. :D Thanks for setting me on the path to success Mr. Mntorankusu.
