    I had Vegas Stakes for SNES! Well, my mom did at least. It was a fun little game. Poker was the best part about it.

    I still have my Vegas Stakes cartridge! When I was young I loved casino games, but as an adult I've only been to a casino once (and it sucked).

    I LOVED Vegas Stakes back in the day!

    People would come bump into you and you'd lose $40,000. It made me the cynical, suspicious, paranoid man I am today. If anyone bumps into me ever, anywhere, I scream and throw them to the ground and check their pockets for my wallet.

    So far it's just been accidental contact, but one day my efforts will pay off when I catch that inevitable pickpocket.

    Kokuga looks cool, I wonder if it supports the Circle Pad Pro?

    @deathly_hallows I kind of doubt it. Sounds like the "rotating" of the turret is built into the core gameplay, being able to just point wherever you want whenever you want would change that dynamic.

    There is no continuous stream of bullets either; the L and R shoulder buttons are used to rotate the turret on top of the ship, with the B button firing off a shot and the circle pad allowing movement.

    Hmm, single cart multiplayer sounds cool...

    Download play is supported, with up to four players able to play cooperatively using a single game cart.

    Is this game eShop only?

    @Zero
    Ooooh, yeah, I was just reading their official site, it's a tank game and you use the triggers to rotate the turret, it's kind of like the DSiWare game... what's it called? Where you're the little army tank? Anyway it was really fun. I might have to pick this up.

    Nintendo are you kidding me. Japan got Pilotwings, Super Mario Kart, Secret of Mana, and FF6 last two weeks. We all know what we got last week then followed by a Vegas gambling game.......guess Reggie didn't think our bodies were ready.....

    Well, to be fair, you know, there's a lot of work they gotta put in re-translating those games. Mario Kart has about 100,000 words in a .txt last time I checked.

    So, am I the only one wondering what happened to Chronicles of Mystara?

    @VickiL

    Curious on that too. Capcom said they're waiting on Nintendo's approval, but...Nintendo's site is listing the date as TBD. Dunno what's up.

    Well Seeing as SOM and FF6 are already on WII shop its not translation. these games have been translated since 1993/1994.

    Vegas Stakes was fun back in the day, as was the NES predecessor, Vegas Dream. In this day and age though...I'm hard pressed to drop $8 on a casino game that I can't take with me on the go, especially with so many free alternatives available elsewhere. The characters you meet just aren't worth that kind of money.

    Not that I necessarily need the demo, but...where's the Project X Zone demo located? The only demo I can find was the one from two weeks ago, which I already have.

    Where's the NEW demo?
