    Volleyball (NES®, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Step onto the court in one of the first volleyball games ever made. Select either the men's or women's competition, choose from one of eight available countries to represent, and prepare for some intensely fun game play. The straightforward controls include all the moves you'll need to effectively direct your six-person team. Take some time mastering them in the training mode, though, because you'll need all the practice you can get when competing against challenging computer opponents. If you feel like some multiplayer action, take on a friend in the two-player mode and see whose skills are more polished. Block, set and spike your way to victory.

    AXELAY® (Super NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Mysterious aliens have invaded the Earth-like planet of Corliss, slowly draining the planet's resources. Take control of the prototype Axelay ship and use its wide range of advanced weaponry to battle enemy forces. Play through multiple stages of action —from other planets to space stations — all on your way to destroying the alien headquarters. You are Corliss' last line of defense, so be careful not to be too distracted by the excellent graphics (including great scrolling effects) and rocking music. Pilot the Axelay using Konami's famously tight play control and experience what many consider to be a classic of the shooter genre.

    BLUE'S JOURNEY (NEOGEO, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 900 Wii Points): The planet of Raguy has been invaded by the Daruma tribe, changing it from a beautiful and peaceful place into one filled with pollution. Released in 1991, this horizontally scrolling action game tells the story of an insectarian named Blue and his quest to save the planet and keep its inhabitants from being turned into slaves. Use Blue's main weapon, a leaf, to flip enemies onto their heads and then throw them at other members of the Daruma tribe, defeating anyone in your way. Additional weapons, such as bombs and boomerangs, are also available, or you can collect flowers to purchase other special items like honey or swim fins. Blue also has the special ability to change his size at will — if he's too big to fit in a particular area, then shrink him. The bright, colorful graphics, combined with lots of hidden items to find, ensure an enjoyable experience with plenty of replay value. Help Blue muster all his strength and eliminate the Daruma tribe.

    They could have given us Super Spike Volleyball, an actually decent NES volleyball game for 4 players, but oh yeah, they are a bunch of torturous scallywags. Thats right, I said it.....Scallywags......

    Never heard of the SNES game........what up with that?

    *waits for 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'

    I know we say this a lot, but is it possible that THIS is the worst update so far?

    True, but most people will be stuck on Mario Galaxy.

    Normally I found that when good wii releases come out, the VC games suck. The same goes both ways. Slow weeks normally get good VC games.

    As long as there is 1 good release (Mario Galaxy this week) I'm happy.

    Plus we got Mario Bros 3 last week. I'm still playing that one.

    I was thinking they were going to do a month of Mario like they did for Metroid after seeing sm3 come out last week. Oh well, maybe next week we'll get Mario RPG.

    Just watched a youtube on the neo-geo game and it looks pretty fun. Too bad I'm out of points and haven't dl'd mario 3 yet :(

    Oh I knew this update would be crappy due to Galaxy coming out, but isn't that sad that we KNOW when the updates are going to suck?

    Cheer up, next week is the first anniversary of the Wii's launch in America. Maybe you'll get something special?

    Also, I've heard Axelay is supposed to be fairly good.

    Oh trust me, come tomorrow the virtual console will be the LAST thing on my mind.

    But, for me personally, I don't want stuff I've never heard of. I want the games I know and love. And I'm guessing that's how most people feel.

    That's what I like most about it! Yeah, of course it's great being able to relive the classics, but the ones I'm really interested in are the rarities and undiscovered gems, like say, Gunstar Heroes. Obviously I mean good obscure games, before anyone mentions JJ and Jeff.

    But yeah, come Friday I doubt I'll be worrying too much about the VC.

    Nothing was going to top last weeks entries. But there is a third NES volleyball game that was decent - any one remember it? Oh yeah - Kings of the beach! That and SSVB were good times.

    Too many great games for Wii coming out this week to worry about this.
