    Mmm Rygar. Fun game, but ridiculously easy to beat.

    I wonder what the new Rygar for the Wii will be like.

    So there's more important factors to VC games than what the consumer wants? This explains the constant flow of turd we have been getting for VC games. I can just picture their meetings:

    "So we have to put out more games for next week. Any ideas?"

    "How about Battletoads?"

    "Umm, no people might actually download Battletoads. We have to release games that no one will buy."

    "Oh, in that case, how about another golf game? We have tons of those and no one's buying them ..."

    "Brilliant! Lets take that and another couple shitty T-16 games and call it a week!"

    "Here's an idea! Lets release all of our good games as soon as possible and for the next 5 years just release crappy ones!"

    Stop complaining...seriously.

    I think I heard the robot clanking sounds in the background when I read the reply. Nice try though.

    This is an important factor most people don't think about. Nintendo didn't make all those games. Some are 25 years old now and were made by companies that simply do not exist anymore. Sorting out who the official license owner is now can be a daunting, next to impossible task. Even then, there's no promise that the current legal owner of the property will agree to whatever terms Nintendo offers.

    Re: Battletoads,

    Regardless of it being made by RARE, I'm sure for TV shows/Movies, etc they would need further licensing agreements, no?

    That's why I wouldn't expect **** games like Home Alone popping up anytime soon.

    It falls under the same part as Spiderman 2 in trems of licened games (ie good but not to good)
    I think you where thinkin of home improvment
    That falls into the ET braket of licenced games
    (Ie total and complete shite)

    no! I have a better idea! Lets give everyone all of our bad games, so for the next five years, we will get one good game a year! That sounds way better. Thats what they advertised right? We can "tap into a classic gaming library" of only bad games.

    Do you hang out on DIY websites, telling people not to complain about General Electric when the say their stove isnt working? "Guys, stop complaining seriously, General Electric is the greatest company on earth and can do no harm".

    The only VC news is bad news....so thats what people are talking about right now. Deal with it.

    I haven't paid for a single VC game. I got my Wii to play Wii games. I got my fill of playing the older games back when they were current, on their native consoles.

    But I have no problem with people who love VC games. My friend who introduced me to the Wii has a ton.

    It's like they all expect 2 of the greatest games ever, each week. Now we know that's not going to happen. It has to be balanced out because if we only released amazing games eventually we'll run out and then what will people do, complain for a straight 4 years?

    The difference is these are RE-RELEASES. I'm going to buy Yoshi's Island regardless of when it comes out.

    It would be impossible to complain once all the "good games" are released because we would have nothing to complain about. It's not like after all the games are released we're going to say, "Nintendo really should have waited a few months in between Super Punchout and Pilotwings 64."

    I'd be more inclined to try these "experimental rarities" if I had already purchased all the games I wanted anyway. I would say, ok, I've got all the games I think are great, let's try out some of these ones I've never heard of.

    What bothers you so much about people voicing a reasonable opinion? Is it free thought? Or the fact that these people don't match your ridiculous post count?

    Yeah guys, this got a little blown out of proportion. I was only trying to be funny. The whole "VC sucks argument" is old enough anyway.

    But if you that hyped about a new game wouldn't it be the same circumstance...like Brawl...everyone kept complaining about delays and such.


    No, but once all your eagerly anticipated titles are gone what are you going to do once bored...? Wait for the next big game? Oh wait..they are all already gone and now there is nothing left...but...bad games

    Games you've never heard of are besides the point, we're talking about all good games. Once they are out and everyone is bored..then wait...no more sales.

    Nothing bothers me about people voicing their thoughts..but now you're countering me...aren't you doing the same? It's a two way street buddy

    I'm quite the oppressive dictator aren't I?

    My post count is irrelevant and nothing to do with this, it is you bringing it up, not me so looks like you're the one bothered by post counts.
