Do you feel it? That nagging feeling of emptiness inside you? Eating at you? Day after day? All because you haven't stopped everything of non-importance and bought the 3D version of Shinobi 3, pronto. Be the change you want in your life, man. Go get it.

that's a pretty good deal! revelations 1's raid mode (the new mercenaries game) isn't as good as 2's but it's still fun

Is revelations worth getting on the 3ds? I am a crazy person who enjoyed the core mechanics of RE6 if that makes a difference.

it'll control more like re4 and 5 (unless you're one of the few to have a circle pad pro) and is definitely more like an older re as far as mood and tone go, but i'm a big fan. also at $5 lol who cares

ultimate genesis collection couldn't even bother to let you lock on sonic & knuckles to its appropriate games

That wasnt laziness or incompetency though. It was a choice of either getting the lockon feature working, or axing several games completely due to time/budget constraints.

i know that's what they said but that's the worst excuse i've heard in my life. unless they were absolutely adamant on making sure s3&k did the first boot save data carry over from sonic 3, which why would they be barely anyone even knows or cares that this is a thing, putting in the lock on games is absolutely the most trivial, zero-work thing in the world. you don't have to do any loving engineering it's a completely figured out thing. there were dos programs for windows 98 that could do it for you. there's already connected roms they could have just used.

the more cynical side of me feels that they didn't put it in because then nobody would have bought the xbla version of sonic & knuckles they put out later in the year

It's a solid (if a bit short and repetitive) RE game which controls like RE4/5 with the ability to strafe while aiming but no gun upgrade mechanics (instead, you have boring numerical stat mods to slot in to your guns), and is closer to older RE games in terms of tone. It's good for $5 if you enjoy both styles of RE games.

I'm a fan of all of the early 2D Shinobi games, including the first one from the arcade. It's very hard, but thus was the nature of arcade games to take more quarters. I bought Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection because both that and Golden Axe Warrior were unlockable games for it. It does only have that one and Shinobi III (which is perhaps the best), but I do wish that it had Shadow Dancer and Revenge of Shinobi as well, if only to have all four on one compilation.

My memories of Shinobi III are that the music when you're on the horse is awesome, and the brain monster at the end of stage 3 scared the poo poo out of me as a kid. But I didn't know it got a remake! Thanks goons.

Shadow Dancer plays like the first Shinobi game and is thus bad.

I'm trying to come up with what's left for them to put on the N64 VC in NA.

Pilotwings 64
Wave Race
Star Fox 64
Majora's Mask
Super Smash Bros.

Isn't that it for First Party stuff? Even Mario Party I-III were developed by Hudson and produced by Nintendo, which would mean getting Konami's approval, right? (Konami could also put three Bomberman, two Castlevania, and two Goemon games out there, but Konami doesn't do videogames anymore, especially on WiiU).

Even if Nintendo's BFF Capcom got into N64 VC, what would there be? The Resident Evil N64 versions? Mega Man 64?

True, I forgot Excitebike 64 existed.

I also forgot about the Pokemon games. My guess is that Snap is possible, but the Stadiums aren't and they'd be happy to forget Hey You Pikachu existed.

It would be pretty sick if they did Stadium and made it so you could zap your dudes from Red and Blue 3ds VC but that sounds like a crazy amount of work they will not do.

A Snap game would really benefit from the motion controls, but I don't think VC can use those?

No but you could use the Gamepad as a gyroscopic camera, which would be awesome. Of course this also falls under the "Cool but too much effort for a VC game" category.

As far as N64 games go, there's still the greatest 64 game of all time: Mischief Makers.

No, Nintendo owns them and can release them as they wish. The only one they've ever re-released is MP2, however (and Japan's getting it again on Wii U next week).

Pilotwings/Excitebike 64 have never been re-released, I don't know why.

An Enix title, therefore owned by SE, which hasn't been particularly fond of the Virtual Console (though the release of FFTA indicates that that may be changing...?).

Enix's games never get enough love. Outside of Dragon Quest, they never get any love.

I agree it's not likely, but it's still the one I want the most. Speaking of Enix games, I'd also like E.V.O.: Search for Eden to show up on the VC as well.

I'd love to see Mischief Makers rereleased in any form, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of those games so obscurely coded that asking them to emulate it properly on the WiiU VC would be met with a solemn thousand-yard stare or outright sobbing. They do some technically-weird things in that game (the bosses made of pieces animated in sync, etc) on a console infamous for already-esoteric coding.
