I'm getting it and I've already played it. It'll be nice to have one less disc to swap out of my system.

I like the one Wii game with a Virtual Console game each week. This type of "slow drip" I can handle.

I'm loving all the eShop sales recently. I'd like to give myself credit for this due to all those Club Nintendo surveys I filled out.

I forgot to pick up Teslagrad last week, I will definitely grab it before Jan 29th. Looking forward to what's on tap for this week's throwback sale.

Little Mac will come to your house and beat the tar out of you if you don't get his game for $10.

@VofEscaflowne still on the slow wait of FF6 coming to Wii U virtual console so I can enjoy the Miiverse support...

I think we're all in agreement that Punch Out! is a no brainer. I missed it when it came out on Wii so now's the time! I'm really stoked to let me kids play this since they've been asking who the green boxer dude is in Smash.

It's at least out in Japan on Wii U, but doesn't allow for screen caps...but I would like Square's Wii VC catalog on the Wii U. That would seal it as about the only system I need this generation.

@ludist210 The sad thing is that its been out in Japan for almost 2 years on the Wii U VC....

FFVI has seen a release though. Lufia II has not

So tempted to get Punch-Out!! - even though I still have the disc, in-box, sitting on my shelf not two feet away from the console!

$10. Aurgh. So tempting!

@VofEscaflowne which makes it all the more crazy that it wasnt updated yet...

but its still insane that most VC games on Wii haven't been converted yet...

I've never played Punch Out Wii*!

*played the hell out of Mike Tyson's backing the day.

NES REMIX 2 is on sale! Should I play it without playing the first one? What do you think?

Remix 2 is quite fun, but I'd say make Wii Punch-Out a serious priority if you even moderately liked the first. It's extremely fun and one of the best follow-ups to a classic franchise this whole millennium.

Remix 2 was the better of the two games. I'd recommend it over the first.

But absolutely buy Punch-Out!! Wii for that price. It's worth it.

Strange thing is I got an ad for DKCR on my wiiU this morning. I already have that. I'd rather Punch Out. Hope that's still coming down the pipe.

Yeah for $10 I'm definitely going to get it. And for the record I liked Other M as well, although Uprising... no. Nopety no no no-sir-eee not a chance no.

Good I already downloaded 2, the price was too good to pass up.

Funny thing is I've been thinking about getting Tropical Freeze lately, even though I didn't love the first Returns game, I liked it but not love. I'm just into Wii U lately and looking for games to play on it. Think my next purchase will be Freeze or Treasure Tracker...

I'd go with DK over the Capt'n, me self.
