    Star Soldier (NES®, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone - Mild Fantasy Violence, 500 Wii Points): The standard for vertically scrolling shooters, Star Soldier is the original game that spawned all of the titles in the long-running Soldier series. Go inside a floating space station inhabited by a giant computer known as Starbrain. Your mission: to stop Starbrain's galactic invasion by piloting Caesar, a new, compact space fighter through 16 deadly stages. Collect power capsules to increase three different attributes of your ship: firepower, movement speed and defensive shields. Blast wave after wave of approaching enemies or use the innovative Trap Zone feature to fly beneath a land mass and avoid incoming fire. Conquer each stage to make your way to the final confrontation with Starbrain.

    Dynamite Headdy™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone - Comic Mischief, 800 Wii Points): Headdy, a toy with a detachable head, arrives in North Town to find that the evil puppet king Dark Demon is causing serious problems. Dark Demon is gathering up all the puppets in town and turning some into his own evil minions, while eliminating the rest of the puppets that aren't good enough to join his legions. Headdy is captured and is targeted for the incinerator, but escapes in the nick of time. Now he's got to save the town. To do so, Headdy has to take on all manner of bad guys and even has to contend with his lifelong nemesis, Trouble Bruin the bear. Can Headdy overcome all his foes and take down Dark Demon?

    Drop Off (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 600 Wii Points): Brave five rounds of haunting, nightmarish dreams in this take on the classic arcade puzzler. To save his dearly beloved from the malicious demon that controls her dreams and holds her captive, our brave hero plunges himself into the nightmare to vanquish this evil foe. Deftly use the arrow items and control the angle of the ball to shatter the blocks that descend from the top of the screen. Set your sights on the joints holding the blocks together and knock off multiple blocks in one exhilarating blow. As you drop more and more blocks, their shapes will change, allowing you to earn bonus points. You must use your concentration and reflexes to defeat the demon and save your beloved.

    Meh, sour games this Monday, IMO. Only 1 NES game and 2 3rd Party games (Sega Genesis + TurboGrafx16). I think Nintendo needs to step up to the plate with these updates for the VC.

    I have my star soldier cartridge still. If you download this game, you will play it for about 5 minutes is all im gonna say.

    Man, they are picking some RANDOM ****, thats for sure......Nobody even knows wtf the crap they are releasing is, "so we can experience it for the first time!!"

    I was thinking, this is their plan. They will drown us in week after week of bad games, and then when we get used to snatching up any game that isnt a sequal to a TG-16 pinball game, thye will start releasing the good ones all at once. We will buy them all, thinking that there wont be any good games released for a while after this one. There has to be some plan like that, because I would buy 100 different games if they would just release them, I dont understand. So many games I would buy.

    Yea, I still don't understand why the SNES is ridiculously underrepresented on VC. I completely agree with you Zeek, there should be a much larger SNES catalogue.

    This is why most people want a Demo Channel from Nintendo.

    I keep telling you guys Nintendo is releasing VC games based on regional sales of the Wii. US sales are the highest, so we get the crap. Japan sales are the lowest so they get games like Breath of Fire 2, and 5 releases a week!

    I know this trend is not absolute, but I'm seeing this theme more and more now. Clearly the marketting department controls what VC games we get each week, and it's starting to annoy me.

    What part of TAoL are you stuck in?????

    I am stuck at Ninja Gaiden. 6-2 is so hard to get past and when you get to the boss at the end of 6-3 and lose, you have to start at 6-1 instead of 6-3 like all other times in the game. Total BS.

    I would also like to thank all the little fanboys that used to chew us out for saying anything negative about the VC releases. I am glad you are hiding in your holes. I was tired of explaining myself so much. These releases rock! UK got Metroid this week.

    And the guy saying that the sales are what affects the release, so this is my fault for drinking and downloading Gradius, Lode Runner, and F-Zero? (not that F-Zero wasnt good in its time, but they released F-Zero X on us days after I bought it). We must come together and resist our urge to download just anything that comes along. I have pool league tonight, and afterwards, me and my teamate play VC downloads, sometimes leading to illogical purchases.

    It is just so ironic I am sitting here reading all the negative comments about the crap Nintendo has been releasing to the US VC...

    And only a few short months ago, I was being berated left and right for pointing out this trend... Some nuts are hard to crack I guess...

    I predict a solid spate of more crappy games for the VC until at least the time Halo 3 launches for the Xbox 360 as I see it as a good time for Nintendo to try and steal some of M$ thunder...
