    Lunar Pool® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Lunar Pool takes the historical game of billiards and reinvents it with a unique and futuristic flair. The rules are simple: All you need to do is use your cue stick to hit the white cue ball, causing it to hit the other numbered balls and make them go into the pockets. You can enjoy nearly unlimited game play with 30 tables, two different ball arrangements, and the ability to change the degree of friction on the table. You can play against a computer or another human player, so try challenging someone once you've got the hang of the game.

    Ninja JaJaMaru-kun® (NES®, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Take on the role of a ninja called JaJaMaru and rescue the captured Princess Sakura from the evil Namazu Dayuu in this action-packed game, previously unreleased outside of Japan. JaJaMaru must use his throwing stars to defeat the monsters lurking in each of Dayuu's many hideouts. JaJaMaru has to be careful though, as each monster has its own unique weapon and method of attacking. The only way for him to advance is to break the floor bricks above him and move up and down between the levels of each round, defeating monsters as he goes. To help him, broken bricks sometimes reveal items that JaJaMaru can use to his advantage, possibly leading to the ultimate power-up: a ride on Gamapakun, the giant frog. Throw in some bonus stages and you've got a game with a style all its own.

    Golden Axe™ III (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, Rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): The once-peaceful kingdom so familiar to fans of the original Golden Axe is under threat once again. The Prince of Darkness has stolen the invaluable Golden Axe, taken over the kingdom and rendered its warriors harmless with an evil curse. One warrior breaks free from the curse and must defeat the prince and regain the Golden Axe to save the kingdom. In this one- or two-player action game, play as a giant, a panther or a sword-wielding human and fight your way to victory once again.

    UUUUhhhhhhgggkkk! Lunar Pool????

    The best game, GoldenAxe III, is a cheap port. Backgrounds look like **** and is the most repetitive game on earth.

    Next Weeks Predictions:

    Festers Quest: NES
    McKids: Nes
    Kriss Kross- Make my Video: SegaCD

    I actually played McKids because it was one of the few games the local rentals places had.

    Well, we have 2 Mario titles coming out within the next 3 weeks, so maybe, just MAYBE, we'll see Mario 3 on the VC as early as next week

    Some people I talk to think Lunar Pool is great. I wouldn't be surprised if I was pressured into buying it.

    Oh boy, Lunar Pool!

    Someone's just not trying. I think it's neat that they will launch every Nintendo game ever made, but can they go light on the horrible games until 2009? I don't want to see Back to the Future(NES), and Hotel Mario(worst mario game ever) until the apocalpse, or at least 2009.

    We should start requesting from Nintendo games we don't want to see on VC.

    I heard they are releasing Mario 3 when they have a couple "slow" months. That is the smart thing to do.

    Mario 3 was my favorite.

    LOL.....well, I never played it, I just assumed the folks at Mcdonalds didnt put a whole lot of effort and skill into the project, being that they are the biggest whores on the planet. I have seen some video reviews though, enough to know this game = shite.......

    ok more VC predictions.......

    Rambo for NES......500 wii points
    Platoon for NES........700 wii points (had to get permission from Charlie Sheen)
    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer for the Apple IIe....... 1.3 wii points

    actually, they could do something even worse.......they could release a classic game that is ****ed up and impossible to play correctly because there is a blatant 1 second delay from the time you push the punch or dodge buttons (any one download Punch Out and realize you have to move 1 sec before you are supposed to? kinda hard to beat Mike at the end this way....oh excuse me, Mr. Dream.)...more like Mr. Rape.
