Apparently the SNES Goemon is way, way better and that the GB Goemon isn't very good.
Why on Earth would they release this instead of a GBC game or a better GB game? Really? I guess they just want to give crappier games the spotlight so that they can get some small amount of sales? Who cares, really? Aggggh. Friggin eShop.
Perfect example of why nobody is apparently EVER satisfied with the VC. I know they release games at a horrid pace sometimes, but even when there is a release, people usually shrug it off unless it's the game they remember so fondly from their childhood. I don't think Nintendo can ever change this perception of the VC, there just aren't a lot of people out there willing to take a chance on older games to discover something they missed.
So from Nintendo's perspective, yeah, they are financially better off releasing Super Mario Bros. (NES) on the 3DS VC than an obscure 3rd party GB game or even a lesser-known first party game. I'm actually surprised we even got Mole Mania.
Sorry to sound so nerd ragey. I thought I just read that this game was pretty terrible, and I want this service to do well, so I get frustrated when I see something like that or Tennis or Urban Champion pop up on there when I know there could be something way better in its place.
I know Nintendo can't release a good game every week if their goal is to release the entirety of the GB library, but I dunno, I just got grumpy when I read some bad things about this game, because I want there to be really good games on the eShop.
Edit: Man. Not sure why I'm so snippy today. I need work. Blegh.
