When the whole Virtual Console thing was first announced, there was one game above all others I wanted to play again. Ducks Ahoy. Telling myself "come on, that's never going to happen", I settled on a backup choice. Bionic Commando. Looks like that's never going to happen, either, as Capcom's Ben Judd has told 1UP that Nintendo totally cock-blocked moves for the game to be released on the VC:
We couldn't get it approved for the Virtual Console...I can't say why. I can just say that we tried to get it to work.
Is it the Nazi thing? The exploding head thing? Who knows, could have been both, could be neither!
