Ah. I simply went insane then, that's good to know.

It's possible you mistook Vector Racing for F-Zero which is a 3DS downloadable game. Though this seems like a longshot as the graphical styles are completely different.

There is also the fact that they have access to the original assets and source code which I'm sure makes it far easier to do with good results.

Hopefully they've still got the source code. I don't know about Nintendo specifically but I know many Japanese developers are pretty bad about archiving their source code. This has created numerous problems for rereleases such as the Silent Hill HD collection, where Konami didn't have the source code for the released version of Silent Hill 2, only a beta created a couple months before release; and Sega who have completely lost the source code to the original House of the Dead (meaning there will never be a remake of it, unless it's remade from the ground up)

Japan is getting a bunch of discounted Megaman games as part of Capcom's Megaman 25th anniversary celebrations; MM1-6 on 3DS VC (yes, Japan has all six of them already!) and MM9/10 on WiiWare will be 20% off until January 7.

No word on whether any of these discounts will be made available internationally, but Capcom-Unity said they'll be announcing some MM-related stuff later today, so here's hoping...

There was an interview with some Capcom USA guys, and they were asked if the Mega Man games were coming to the US 3DS Virtual Console and they gave a definitive "I can't talk about that now" response.

Nah, none of the NES Mega Man games are available on the US 3DS Virtual Console, and Mega Man 6 is still not available for the Wii Virtual Console. Though Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge for the Game Boy is available for the 3DS Virtual Console.

I just remembered something... NA still doesn't have those Game Gear games that were supposed to come out in the "summer of 8-bit", does it?

Nah, Sonic Blast and Sonic Labyrinth have still been sitting at the back of the Virtual Console section since early Fall.

Quite a few of them, yeah, and I believe the term was first coined in describing Symphony of the Night. The only inaccurate thing I see is that Harmony (if I remember correctly, but I played it more than eight years ago) was one of the few arcadey Castlevanias post-SotN. Heck, could well be that most of the Castlevanias by now are Metroidvanias.

(or those loving garbage faux-Castlevania 3D titles)

I think Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth was the only recent old-school Castlevania style game in recent years. And that was made by M2 anyways.

Bill did say in the Direct that they were trying to perfectly recreate the old games as everyone remembers them.
Removing the glitches seems counter-intuitive to that goal.

Considering Nintendo has done things like keep speedrunning glitches in the 3DS version of Ocarina, I would be kinda suprised if they took the glitches out of Pokemon. I don't know anything about programming but it seems like it'd be more work to fix these games rather than just put 'em up as is.

I had a friend who texted me "nintendo is bringing the HEAT" as he watched the direct announce it and I had to loving laugh. these are ports of now-redundant games from a decade ago. Google "problem with gen 1" and you'll see that big graphic about how hilariously broken and poorly made the originals were.

Also Street Fighter GBA Revival is actually pretty good if only because it lets you activate an "easy mode" for special moves if the control pad is too wonky for you.

How much cognitive dissonance does it take to poo poo on a Pokémon re-release and then champion a completely unnecessary port of Super Turbo?

Can you explain this to me? Like I don't see enough of a fundamental difference between any of the Metroidy Castlevanias that would make me like one and not the others. Liking one more than the others, sure, but outright disliking all except one I don't get.

I'm one of those people, but it's been so long since I've played either that I couldn't say exactly why. The art style change definitely put me off, but I also did't really like the game itself as much either. Maybe I was just getting tired of the formula since I 100%'ed Aria and immediately moved onto Dawn.

I see people in this forum talk a lot about playing entire series from start to finish and it always seems like a godawful idea that will result in you hating great games due to sheer burnout. I get tired of the objectively good formula of some games before a single game is even over. It seems like you're just setting yourself up for disappointment playing an entire series or genre of games back to back.

I can't imagine what Musou series diehards must look like. I've really enjoyed Hyrule Warriors, but it's my first Musou game since Dynasty Warriors 4.

I feel like even for people that love the Dynasty Warriors series, you'd have to skip every other one or something. There's no way you couldn't burnout on a series that has probably close to 50 full releases, and that doesn't even include offshoots like Bladestorm and Crimson Sea.

That's like saying "you'd have to skip every other age of empires or something" Just because there were lovely GBA ports of some of them.

C'mon dude there's 4 AOE games, if you include Age of Mythology. Let's count the number of full musou-style games that Omega Force has developed:

Dynasty Warriors 1-8
Dynasty Warriors Empires 4-8
Samurai Warriors 1 through 4-II
Samurai Warriors Empires 2-4
Warriors Orochi 1-3
Dynasty Warriors Gundam 1-3 & Reborn
Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce
One Piece Pirate Warriors 1-3
Fist of the North Star 1 & 2
Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2
Arslan: Warriors of Legend

36 games!!! That's a poo poo ton of games and content, and that doesn't even include other offshoots/similar series like Bladestorm, Crimson Sea, Kessen, Dynasty Tactics, Legend of Troy, etc.

Yeah, if you only count the mainline Dynasty Warriors games that's only 8, but, correct me if I'm wrong, most people consider all the musou games to be housed under one umbrella.

Anyone into the River City Ransom remake that got announced in Japan? I think it got brought up in the other 3ds thread but not here. I'm leaning more towards just getting the NES port over holding out hope for a western release.

Arc System Works has said they plan on bringing more of the Kunio-Kun series to the West now that they own all the rights to the entire series. They already put out River City Super Sports Challenge (kind of a Crash n the Boys update) out on PS3 and PC in the fall of last year.

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.

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

Nintendo put out several Art Style games or WiiWare that are mostly pretty neat; some are remakes of Japan-only GBA games, some are original. I thought for sure they'd continue that series for 3DS/Wii U but they never did...

There's an original Blaster Master game for WiiWare, and the Trails devs made a game called MotoHeroz that's like Trials mixed with Mario Kart that I don't think was ported to many other platforms.

About Bomberman Blast: if you're playing on a Wii you can do 8-player local multiplayer with 4 Wii controllers and 4 GC controllers.

I'm assuming the Gamecube adapter would not get this to work on a Wii U.

I completely forgot about that. Haven't got it yet but I will eventually. And while I dont doubt that it's great it seems really weird that it has such a tiny roster.

From the perspective of a Pokemon game it doesn't, but from the perspective of a brand new fighting game, it makes sense. Also, they are slowly releasing more characters in the arcade version and not all of those have made their way to the console version. Typically, a fighting game finishes it's updates with the arcade version and then comes to console, but in this case it came to console while the arcade version was still getting it's own updates.

Have you played all of the "-Mo" games like pushmo and crashmo. Those are all pretty dope. Also, I knows there's a bunch of Picross games for the 3DS, though I don't know which ones are better than others. Also, not quite a puzzle game but Donkey Kong '94 for the Game Boy is a great platformer with some puzzle elements. For the GBC, there's the original Toki Tori as well as Pokemon Puzzle Challenge, and if you're really desperate there's always the Game Gear versions of Columns and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (aka Puyo Puyo with a Sonic reskin).
