Allow me to join the whining about Murasame not coming to the Wii U VC. Like, is there an actual REASON? I'm torn about picking it up for 3DS or waiting for a Wii U version. Did it hit the Wii U in any region?
Regardless, good week. I'll upgrade some VC games, I guess. Was Cybernator on the Wii VC? Is it worth picking up?
I like Double Dragon II but I can't get past this ridiculously annoying and out-of-place stage midway through. It's this weird castle with insta-kill spikes, and I can get there by only losing a couple lives the rest of the game. I like the fight mechanics but whose dumb idea was it to put that super-hard platforming in there??
