    This week:

    Cybernator
    Light Crusader
    Rolling Thunder 2

    What, no Eternal Champions or Shining Force II?

    On the plus side, they're all allegedly good games, and we didn't get Ecco Jr.! Though I'm not sure what to expect when the king of shoot 'em ups makes a Zelda-type game.

    Rolling thunder 2 - Damn fine 2d shooter (also on the Namco collection)
    Doors loads of them
    Cybernator - Herd of never played (not a Nintendo child)
    Light crusader - Tresure dose a (kinda) rpg (remeber they make action games) and it turns out nice again

    Quite a good week
    Id say Rolling thunder 2 is worth a look if you like 2d scrolling shooters (and like opening doors)

    Some good news. Ok I already told you Nintendo will be ramping up VC releases next year from 1-3 to 3-5 a week. They are also launching 1.8 million Wii's a month now! That means by the end of this year they would have launched 17-18 million Wii's!

    Next year they will have 50 million Wii's out by the end of 2008! Freaking insane! Now let's double Sony's number from 6 million by the end of this year to a more generous 2x next year if all goes well. That puts them at 18 million. It will take Sony 2-3 years to match Nintendo's first year. It's clear 2008 will define the winner this console wars. I wonder where Microsoft will rank? BTW VGcharts isn't reporting the recent Wii and 360 sales, they are biased, and not relying on realistic sales anymore. Chalk them up as another nextgenwars website with a ticker.

    There's a Genesis game called Ghouls 'n Ghosts and a SNES game called Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts. The Capcom Classics Collection has all three of the games. Its version of Ghosts 'n Goblins is the arcade version too.
