Virtual Console

Mega Man X
Original platform: Super NES
Publisher: Capcom
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: The future of Mega Man has arrived. Hundreds of years after his death, Dr. Light's final creation is discovered. Released from his capsule by Dr. Cain, X is born into a future world where robot rebellions are a thing of the past. But when Dr. Cain tries to implement Dr. Light's designs into a new series of Reploids, something goes horribly wrong. Now the future lies on the brink of destruction, and X must use all of his newfound powers and abilities to hunt down the maverick Reploids and their leader, Sigma, before the human race is wiped from the planet.

WiiWare

My Little Baby
Publisher: dtp young entertainment
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 600 Wii Points
Description: Have you always dreamed of having a cute little baby to lovingly care for? Now is your chance. Your little bundle of joy smiles at you gleefully, and you have to do everything you can to make sure it develops and grows in a healthy manner. Changing, bathing and feeding are as much a part of your duties as shopping, preparing meals, rocking your baby to sleep, playtime, dressing and teaching it to crawl and walk. But above all, what your little angel needs is your love and attention. All this, plus an enormous selection of toys, clothes and other objects, will make your little one the happiest baby in the whole wide world.

BIT.TRIP CORE (demo version)
Publisher: Aksys Games
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 0 Wii Points; full version available for 600 Wii Points
Description: BIT.TRIP CORE continues the BIT.TRIP saga in this retro-arcade-style game. BIT.TRIP CORE is an exciting action/rhythm game that's best played while zoning out on the tunes and letting the visuals swallow you whole. The experience is inspired by games from the '80s, but with a modern twist. The game play is entirely new to the series, leaving the single-axis controls of BIT.TRIP BEAT behind in favor of the ability to control two axes. If the difficulty gets you down, grab a friend and play cooperatively in two-player multiplayer mode. (Additional controllers are required for multiplayer features and are sold separately.)

Note: Some demo versions do not support all game features, and players cannot save their in-game progress in demo versions.

Nintendo DSiWare

GO Series Captain Sub
Publisher: Gamebridge
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points™

Take control of a yellow submarine equipped with a mechanical arm that can grab treasure off the sea floor. Explore an underwater labyrinth of caverns and caves littered with treasures but surrounded by deadly sea creatures. Fire missiles forward to attack creatures in front and launch missiles upward to fend off dangers from above. Keep an eye out for keys that can unlock doors to deeper caverns as you gradually make your way to the hidden chamber where the giant underwater boss awaits.

DodoGo! Robo

Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 200 Nintendo DSi Points
Description: Entertaining and accessible to everyone, DodoGo! Robo is a puzzle game in which you have to use your head to avoid getting broken.

Sigh, never satisfied...

@Guillaume

It's cool that Mega Man 5 is coming though. I'll definitely buy that to add to my 8-bit MM collection on VC.

Man that might be justification for a brutal and ironic murder.

WHOA WHAO, WHAT THE-? MegamanX?!?

YES!

Hey, if something huge like this releases, you should put it into the thread title! Then I know to stop in!!

Well, I've never played Mega Man X, so this is going on my list of VC games to buy!

Mega Man X is awesome, but I already own it both on the SNES and the PS2 MMX collection. The MMX collection, by the way, isn't emulated perfectly. Maybe it doesn't matter so much to some people, but the inconsistent volume levels for different sound effects would be reason enough for me to get the VC version, if I didn't own the SNES original already. So I might take this opportunity to get the Bit Trip Core demo instead.

@warerare Wow, what a piece of shit. I hope he gets his ass kicked.

@-JKR- I agree; people are more likely to stop in if high-profile games like that are posted in the title.

@-JKR-

I will consider doing that for future NDs on Mondays. I was just keeping it consistent with the other ones I had posted.

Lufia II was also rated by the ESRB...

Am I supposed to believe this TriforceBun character wants FF3 more than I do? Why is he getting all the attention? FF3 is one of my favorite games of all time and nearly the sole reason (not exactly true but it's one of the BIGGEST reasons) I hate FF now.

@carlosrox

So you love it so much that it's also the reason you hate the series? Or do you mean cause no game compares to it?

@VofEscaflowne
Tha latter! 4 6 7 are basically the only ones I really like.

@GelatinousEncore
Is it better than Pulseman?

Overall, yeah. But I gotta give Pulseman credit because of its originality, and because it was never released here which is a shame. Gotta play it if you haven't.

Pulseman's a bit too hard for its own good iMO. Mega Man X is amazing, and one of the last games with true originality in the Mega Man franchise.
