    Ninja Gaiden II™: The Dark Sword of Chaos (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Mild Violence, 500 Wii Points): In Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos, a new villain, Ashtar, is revealed. Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa and rescue Irene Lew, a former CIA agent, from Ashtar. Destroy the Sword of Chaos, a weapon of great power forged from the bone of a demon. Use techniques such as the Fire Wheel or the Windmill Throwing Star and attack while holding on to walls and ladders. Use the most innovative technique of all - the ability to create Shadow Clones, orange shadow versions of Ryu that will constantly follow him, repeating previous actions (moving or attacking) in a delayed cycle. Once again defeat henchmen, creatures and bosses with new fighting techniques and even more weapons as you progress through multiple stages on your way to destroying Ashtar, Jaquio and the Realm of Chaos.

    Metal Marines® (Super NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Set in the near future, most of Earth's land has been disintegrated in the chaos of the Anti-matter War. This real-time strategy game portrays the Colonies' Allied Force - the Metal Marines - in their epic struggle against General Zorgeuf and the Imperial Federation, who are bent on world domination. Commanding the Metal Marines across a series of battles, the player must strategically allocate resources, ready supplies, manage funds and move troops in an effort to outwit and outmove the opponent. The real-time battle system rewards split-second decisions and adaptability in the struggle for military superiority. Unlike most turn-based strategy games, Metal Marines engrosses the player in a fast-paced and frantic battle in which both sides advance simultaneously. A constant eye must be kept on enemy movements to maintain a formidable defense and not miss the perfect chance to strike. Strategic foresight and quick judgment hold the key to victory.

    Gate of Thunder (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): The legendary sci-fi shooter is back! Gate of Thunder is a horizontal side-scrolling shooter that places you in control of special undercover agent Hawk, whose mission is to stop the deadly army of Obbellon fighters. Jump into the action as Hawk gets aboard his ship, the Hunting Dog, and heads out toward the enemy. Blast through stages while effectively using all three of the weapons at your disposal and receiving support from ally Wild Cat ships. Switch through equippable power-up options on the fly to change the direction of your attack. You'll have to blast in front of and behind you to survive all seven stages. Hard-core shooting-game fans looking for a challenge can select HARD or DEVIL mode to experience even more intense action!

    I've actually heard Gate of Thunder is the best out of all three. The only one I've personally played is Ninja Gaiden II which is my favorite of the NES games. A complete copy of Gate of Thunder is valued at $25. Metal Marines is valued at $15. A Ninja Gaiden II cart is valued at $5.

    I'll probably download Gate of Thunder since it seems like the best value out of all of them. Metal Marines looks like an interesting strategy game and I love stuff like Sim City. I might look into that one as well.

    Not bad. It would help if we start getting 5 games a week. Ninja Gaiden 2 is possibly one of the best in the NES series. Beware though, all Ninja Gaiden games defined the word, hard.

    Try saying Ninja Gaiden in place of hard today. Example:
    "These tax forms are Ninja Gaiden."

    You would think they wouldn't hesitate on giving us what we want. They would make even more money off of them than these crapped out games (well Ninja Gaiden was actually pretty good.)

    you have to realize someone still likes/wants/play and purchases all of these games.

    its called hype, the more you want it long, the sooner you will buy it and spread the word when the older really popular/rare games come out. If they released it a long time ago, you'd probably be whining that you dont have another game of some kind, hence there wouldn't be anything to keep you buying other games that you would be semi interested in between times.

    This way it keeps you coming back to look, and purchase other stuff between times.

    yeah... nice job treating a member like that :sick:

    Mario RPG... Paper Mario (it's actually supposed to be Mario RPG) is already out.

    SUPER Mario RPG Legend of the Seven Stars: Nintendo needs Square's permission. If you remember, Square and Nintendo worked together on that.

    Golden Eye: (wow I still have this for N64. Works well, too) I think Nintendo needs the guys that made Golden Eye (movie, i guess)'s permission.

    so... yeah.
