    Well, what a pathetic day of UK VC releases, we have:

    NES: Super Mario Bros
    TG16: Motoroader

    And that's it!

    Hopeless, utterly hopeless.

    Come on Nintendo, you have thousands of titles available to you and these are the scraps we are thrown?

    We also have zero information about potential forthcoming releases.

    Nintendo really need to pull thier fingers out - they've already frustrated a LOT of people with the paltry drip feed of Nintendo Wii consoles

    Mario Bros. was a launch title.

    This is Super Mario Bros. The first side scrolling one.

    While I can understand that Nintendo don't want to release all their 'best sellers' at once and that they also don't want to flood the VC market with dross games, I had at least hoped for one or two titles *per platform* per week - doesn't always have to be a big seller, preferably a nice mixture of good games and some which were perhaps more obscure and didn't sell well as a result (even though they may have been perfectly good games in their own right).

    I can understand Ninty not wanting to release everything at once, but 2 games (one of which no one ever knew existed) is rather poor. Still, at least it wasn't as bad as America's New Year's Day offerings...

    First day? Well, the 'first day' will of course depend when you bought your Wii - some of us had had ours for a few weeks so the 'first day' passed some time ago ............ ie we would like a decent and regular selection of VC games as well as Wii games.

    An N64 game is £7, how can you complain with Super Mario Bros anyway?

    Please people!! Stop telling us to stop complaining!! Yes, Super mario bros WAS a good game, but would anyone here prefer it above Mario 3, World or even Yoshi's Island? So far the VC line up is pathetic! I've bought 2000 points and only got one game, and that's Bomberman for the great multiplayer. There's other good ones I know, but apart from Super Mario 64, which I have on the N64 and DS, there aren't any great games.
    I'm 27 and remember the Snes very fondly, it's far and away the best console ever made. I basically bought a Wii to download SNES classics, would it really have hurt the so called Big N to give us Pilotwings, Mario World and Metroid to get stuck into when we bought our Wii's?
    Sort it out Nintendo, it's not good enough!!

    And I'll save my rant about the launch line up for another thread, Red Steel my arse!!!! (Random I know but boy did that game almost cause the death of my precious Wiimote)!!

    So you have, Zelda,Wii Sports, Mario 64, DK Country, plus a load of decent launch titles and a month later your complaining about a lack of decent games. If your a Nintendo fan you should be used to droughts not complain at a busy time like this.
