Has a year of uninspiring selections all but made you forget the Wii's Virtual Console even existed? Understandable. Might want to buckle up, though, because three of the most-requested games for the service are finally making an appearance.


This coming Monday - November 23 - sees the release of the original SNES Mario Kart, for 800 Points. Good news. Better news is to come, though, as "sometime this holiday season" Nintendo will also release the original SNES Pilotwings and the original N64 Smash Bros. Exact release dates and pricing to come on those two.

Leaving just one game on my Virtual Console wish list. Jurassic Park. Chop chop, Nintendo.

I can't wrap my mind around the concept of paying eight bucks for a ROM. Hell, you don't even own the ROM when you drop the money on it, you just have it locked to your system. If anything happens to the system, you don't have the game anymore.

Unless it was Earthbound. Earthbound I'd buy from the VC for 1000 points twenty times, continuously modding my Wii so it would accept each purchase.

I'll just stick with SNES9X GX for now, and when Nintendo starts producing working replica carts we'll talk spending money.
