    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...

    How much of a drought is Nintendo expecting!!?? Developers should be churning more games since Wii is easier to develop for. I have to admit, non JP Wii owners are getting screwed with the VC. Although they can't bring out the big guns already, but throw us a bone Nintendo!!!

    Also, I know that these games were meant to be experienced in their original glory, but can you really go wrong with online multipayer?

    they aren't rare... their copies!

    you cant photo copy a piece of paper as many times as people want to buy it then call it rare.
    they didnt make these games, the only work involved was turning it into an emulator (which many games already had been, alot for animal crossing). they could charge less, a lot less. esp for games like mario thats gonna sell 500++ copies anyhow.

    i just think in a time of torrents and gametap.com that nintendo could try to deter people from stealing.

    3 dollar games wouldnt be worth trying to hack, 10 dollar games are.

    People really need to stop complaining. The system is brand new, and of course they don't have all the games in yet. They'll get there, just give it a little time.

    Just becuase its new does not mean they cant add stuff to it. Its the companies they need to stop rushing and wait a extra month or 2 put the system up with some good games, the online set up etc and they need to make more systems Im really tired of them being sold out they know its going to happen so make more than double than they have before. For the Wii I really dont get how it took them 5 years to make I mean its just a gamecube that has bigger disks I mean look the Graphics are almost the same, only a 512 hard drive and a sensor bar. That seems to soemthing that could have ready by last christmas and started making them in the beggining of 06 and had over 2 timnes more systems/remotes/downloadable games. But I mean why break the trend of not having the system 100% ready when it comes out? lol

    Because A: the games on vitual console have been in the works for decades. It will be years before *all* the games are out, and also this is the first Nintendo console to be standalone. Did you hear anyone complaining that the Gamecube wan't online when it came out? No, because there was no online, be thankful for what you have.

    Plenty of people complained about GC not being online, because there was an online presence. Dreamcast was already out. GC then did PSO. We always want more and something like a true Online where I can play someone across the country is so common place now that we expected that Nintendo could pull it off at launch.
    We all know how easy it is to emulate SNES, NES, Genesis, etc games. Once the engine was done, they could have had EVERY SINGLE game online ready to download and play from day one. The reason they didn't is more of a money grab. We buy crappy VC's today, knowing we will still buy the good ones when available.
    Not a rant, just the Truth. ;)

    It crazy to think Nintendo couldn't have had a lot more VC titles at launch and launch daily not weekly.

    think of the load their servers must experience every monday when they release more. I hate the wait also find it anoying to add 2 or 3 titles each week when i can download them and beat them all before next release day

    I think they should have had a whack of titles at launch and lots of new ones every week or so.

    With the lack of great titles for the Wii (Zelda great but a gamecube port, Excite Truck crazy fun, COD3 not bad better on PC though others look like Kid's titles) I rely on the VC titles to hold me over as I miss my old SNES and games

    I have downloaded almost every title available as they are classics but we sure are missing a LOT especially N64 and SNES titles like Super Mario World

    I would love to see Mario All Stars too sames as originals with better graphics.

    Hurry up Nintendo get more titles NOW
