    My virtual console rant

    Warning: This thread is purely to vent a little frustration regarding the American Virtual Console offerings as of 12/5/06. If you don't care what I say, move on. If you agree with anything I say here, by all means join in. That being said, here goes:

    [rant]

    Why does Japan get all the cool ass games on VC when the North Americans and UK people will get $hi7? Do they think that we wouldn't buy stuff like TLOZ:ALTTP, Donkey Kong Country, or Street Fighter 2? I'd love to get to play those games again, especially since I never owned a SNES and my experience with them is very limited. I guess most of my problems is with the SNES releases. I really couldn't care less about the Sega Genesis or Turbo Grafx-16, and I've got a N64. I just think it is pure faggotry to short change everyone but the Japanese gamers. I mean, we got the Wii before anyone else and you're going to skimp on what we are offered initially. I know that in time we'll wind up with all the good stuff too, but come on....seriously!!! Is that really any way to get started?

    Maybe because Nintendo is mainly a Japanese company?

    Nintendo is trying to drive sales in the US by releasing more popular VC titles during low Wii game sales periods.

    We'll I hate how Japan get SO much more than the USA even if there are MORE of use here and they make MORE Money here. Its like 2 islands one has 1 million people will the other has 300 million who do you try and sell you iteam too??? The one with more people and beleive me the USA has WAY and I mean WAY more people and more gamers in Japan.
    But I do agree I want N64 games and from what I have heard we wont see any more N64 games for over a month which sucks.
    Also The Wii in Japan has Wii play and Bleach (I wanted that game SO bad) also on Zelda 4 swords they took out a Cool mini game (for no reason) but Japan had it. WHY??? Becuase they hate us for some reason.
    Japan gets everything and it sucks for us.

    I wish they'd give me the games I want, ie. Gauntlet Legends, and Goldeneye. And then I wish they'd drop the prices, to something I can afford without going "Oh God, I spent that much already?" after buying 5 games.

    japan is a different market, there are new games every day and you have to FLOOD it to stay competitive. if they didn't they'd go out of business and you'd have NO games to play. that said, since you went to the trouble to make a thread specifically for complaining I will respect that and say GOD DAMMIT I WANT TO ****ING PLAY TOEJAM AND EARL ALREADY! I had my Wii since launch I bought it specifically to come home and play toejam and earl, i wasnt going to get any games period. VC is one of my favorite features of the wii but it's not living up to its potential. Waiting is frustrating. I know in time, like the rest of you do, we'll all be playing o ur favorite classics but man, waitin really sucks. especially when we all know what's coming out before the new year and everyone has at least one game from the upcoming line up they want.

    price complaints are futile. these are (in North America at least, I just read a pretty major PAL complaint) perfect emulations of the originals, not remakes or anything like that. A lot of these games are out of print and off the market. They are *rare*
    five-ten bucks is only five-ten bucks. It's reasonable.

    I wasn't looking for a real answer, the whole post was more of a rhetorical question.

    did you actually see these games from a consumers wii console, I know they showed Link to The Past on the Wii menu during demos, but I think they chose those titles because they are the most recognizable and would catch gamers attention...
    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.
