    VC is definitely overpriced, but the selection so far has been fairly decent. Though I do wish they would release more games each week (five would be a nice number).



    I never add friend codes.

    "...nintendo doesnt owe you anything."

    I disagree with this notion. They most certianly do owe us, everything.
    I understand that in free enterprise, the goal is to make as much profit as possible. However, there is an integrity that should be maintained in the relationship of buyer/seller. They have a responsibilty to provide a service that satisfies the customer and fulfills the promises of the seller without implementing a streamlined money-grab approach that is insulting to the buyer. There seems to be a marketing mentality that upholds the idea that it's completely ok and advisable to exploit a solid loyal customer base for all their worth. We see this in other products too, like DVD releases. How many times have you gone out to grab your fav flick for the moment on DVD, only to find the same movie released as a "director's cut," "special edition," or "extended version" later on. How many times as consumers are we going to buy virtually the same product. Like when George Lucas magically CGI's in a huge floating turd in the dianoga scene in A New Hope, and all of a sudden there's a new boxed set at the modest price of $69.99. Anyone who would uphold such practices, or retort with, "Well you don't have to buy it, there guy" would achieve the same statement by simply saying, "baa-aa-aa-aaa."

    You gotta look at it from Nintendo's point of view.

    They put out the games.
    They charge those 5 or 10 dollars.
    People buy them.
    They're making money.


    They're just following the, "Don't change the feed of a winning horse" saying.
    As long as enough people buy their VC games, they're gonna keep charging the same as they have been.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    ok really easy way to answer this... go to that one website and fill out surveys and get free wii points. I've done it and got 12,000 wii points so far.
    And yes i have spent almost all of them

    Plus im not advertising, just advising. I know the games are a ripp off and should cost like 50% less. So im not paying a thing for them.

    Pm me if you want the link to the website...if you want it. Just for the fact im trying to help you out not advertise on this cool site.

    i feel ripped off since i've had every nintendo system so far (not counting handhelds) and i had so many of the games but i sold my whole collection to get a wii because i figured it was pretty much all those sytems combined into one....but now nintendo gives us all the crappy games or even the good games we have to pay twice for if we bought it in the first place, the prices need lowered!!! lets go on strike!! lol
