    Galaga™ (NES®, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): Players control their fighters, with their unique ability to combine with other fighters and shoot down the invading aliens. Aliens attack in formations using a variety of attack patterns. Rescue a captured fighter to combine with it, forming a Dual Fighter with twice the firepower. Earn Perfect Bonuses more easily by using a Dual Fighter on the Challenging Stages. Galaga was released in 1981 and became an instant classic with its innovative fighter-combination system and varied enemy attack patterns.

    BRAVOMAN™ (Turbografx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): The village of Nitta has been invaded by the army of Dr. Bomb, an evil scientist who is plotting to take over the world. Facing this crisis is Bravoman, who received his powers from Alpha Man to stand up against Dr. Bomb in the name of justice. The village of Nitta consists of 22 stages - action stages that take place on the ground and shooting stages that take place underwater. Action stages use a unique control system in which the height of a jump and the distance of an attack changes depending on how long players hold down the button. Players collect the Luck Symbols that appear when they defeat enemies and give them to Lottery Man to get recovery and power-up items. Stop Dr. Bomb and bring peace to the village of Nitta and the rest of the world.

    Alex Kidd™ in the Enchanted Castle (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): When King Thor was kidnapped, his son, Alex Kidd, held out hope that his father would return to their kingdom on Planet Aries. Finally, it was revealed that he was being held captive on Planet Paperock. As Alex, players race to his rescue through 11 levels, battling enemies and avoiding obstacles while winning coins that will buy special items and vehicles. At the end of each level, players encounter a boss and enter into a match of "Rock, Paper, Scissors." Throwing the right symbols puts players ever closer to bringing King Thor home; throwing the wrong symbols squashes them beneath a heavy weight.

    First of all Goldeneye would have to be given an ESRB rating. Many people will see this before its released on the VC.

    If you are in the US then games are released on Mondays at 9 AM Pacific time. Sometimes, but rarely games are known before they are released.

    YESS!!! MORE CRAPP!!!!

    I never played Alex Kidd, but I doubt the gameplay and graphics hold up quite as well as Sonic and Mario games. I guess I could look into it though, most people I'm guessing will get it just for the fact he was the first Sega mascot.

    Nintnedo is cheap.

    They might not be able to get Goldeneye since some legal reasons.

    I predicted crap, and was not disappointed. If they released spectacular vc games today, i might spend a few days playing $10 and $7 games instead of going out to throw whatever it will be, $50-70, for SPM.

    Wow. I took a few weeks off from my bitching and it was very wise. I would have been totally stressed and would have wasted so much spare time .

    Please do me a favor. Every monday, look up one of my old VC rants and apply it to the current week because the situation never seems to improve.

    Now instead of bitching, I was gonna make a suggestion for people, one that has been mentioned already 100 times, but I see new faces on here asking the same old questions a lot.

    Anyone that is a big VC fan should just go and buy:
    Gamecube Sonic Collection
    Gamecube Mega Man Anniversary
    Gamecube Namco 50th anniversary Collection (including galaga and xevious)
    (and if you are a real Megaman fanatic...MegamanX collection)

    I own the first 2. I have gotten plenty of play out of them and I will be getting Namco 50th anniv. soon.

    They are about $10 a piece. with the first 3 titles, there are a total of 31 games. The sonic disc has at least 3 of the games on it available for vc at $8 a piece. You do the math. I'll do it for you......right now there are 5 games or $34 worth of VC dowloads on these 3 discs. There could be well over $100 as these games are released. Dont you think they will eventually release some MegaMAns, Sonic sequals, and more Namco classics?????

    Galaga is a classic, but it's not worth paying $5 for. Since you can probably play it on the internet channel. But nothing to big coming out this week. Meh

    MasterJedi is whining and moaning about people whining and moaning on a new Monday......what else is new?

    I have a suggestion for you you ****ing loser.......get used to the fact that every monday they tell us which games we get, people say they like them, people say they hate them, and then you add nothing at all by following a comment saying "quit bitching". It seems like a waste of time to play police man to everyone who says something negative about your favorite video game system. Do you sit here patrolling all day to "*****" yourself, at anyone who had any suggestions or problems with nintendo?

    What have you ever added to the conversation other than "SSBB rocks", or "I cant wait for super mario galaxy". No ****.
