    Here are this week's games:

    Super C for the NES 500 Points

    [​IMG]

    is the sequel to the smash hit Contra, developed by Konami and originally released in 1988 as an arcade game. In this title, the alien forces from the original game have taken over a base in an undisclosed region of South America and the player(s) once again assume the roles of protagonists Bill Rizer and Lance Bean to counter the alien invasion. The original arcade version of Super Contra played essentially the same as its forebearer. The main difference was in its versatility. While the original "Contra" had three versions of gameplay (side-scrolling, up-scrolling, and pseudo-first-person), Super Contra added a top-view perspective as well as improving the scrolling levels by including inclined surfaces. As a result of this and changes to the enemy forces, it was a more difficult game to master.

    Breath of Fire II for the SNES 800 Points

    [​IMG]

    It was originally released for the Super Famicom in Japan in 1994 by Capcom. It was released in North America in 1995 by Capcom, before Laguna released it in Europe in 1996.

    The story begins in a flashback sequence of when Ryu, the protagonist, is six years old and living in the town of Gate. He goes off to find his sister, who has left to sleep under the dragon guarding the entrance to the underworld. During this sequence he becomes an orphan as his father and his sister disappear, and no one in town remembers him. He goes to the orphanage, which is run by the dominant church of St. Eva, and another orphan named Bow, goes out in the middle of the night, with Ryu following him. They enter a cave, and are soundly defeated by a demon named Barubary. It is a traditional top down RPG in the vein of Final Fantasy & Zelda.


    Ghouls 'n Ghosts Sega Genesis 800 Points

    [​IMG]

    The gameplay for Ghouls n' Ghosts is similar to that of Ghosts 'n Goblins. The player controls the knight Arthur, who must advance through a series of eerie levels and defeat a number of undead and demonic creatures in his quest to restore souls stolen by Lucifer (Loki in the English-language Sega Genesis and Sega Master System versions), including the soul of his bride, Princess Prin Prin. Along the way, Arthur can pick up a variety of weapons and armor to help him in his quest.

    Breath of Fire 2 is a must for any SNES RPG fan. It looks like Nintendo added in some extra features to their VC games. Unless you actually played these games, don't be so quick to write them off.

    Breath of Fire I'm definetly the most interested in. Super C, was always too difficult to a point which made it unplayable, and simply not fun. I really would've liked to see Zombies Ate My Neighbors, before summer's out.

    What extra features? The only changes I've heard of are for licensing reasons (Punch Out, Wave Race 64, etc.) and emulation problems (Mario Kart 64).

    I agree with Prinny. Play these games. You guys are really disregarding the whole value of VC if you judge games before even playing them.

    There are cough... ways to play these games in an attempt to preview them without sinking money in.

    you are right, and as I said in the post I started, there is a 10 man code for super C, so its not IMPOSSIBLE, I have beaten the game plenty of times....

    NOW NINJA GAIDEN, THATS A HARD ****ING GAME.

    How hard is Ghouls 'n Ghosts. I played Super Gouls 'n Ghosts, a few times and it was pretty much one of the most unforgiving and frustrating games I've ever played. How does the difficulty of the Sega one compare?
