    Seriously, was Chronicles of Mystara canceled? One more anti-Nintendo rage from my partner to sigh through.

    I'm waiting for the Pilotwings 64 to drop. Did that ever come to the VC? That's the one I remember loving. Wish I could play that.

    Did anyone see Nintendo completely botch the launch of Mario Bros on the VC on Facebook? They showed a picture of SUPER Mario Bros. I wonder if that will bite them somehow (people saying they bought the wrong game by mistake).

    I called this happening weeks ago, even without Nintendo's foibles.

    It didn't, and I want to try it. I'm on the fourth stage in Pilotwings (which I couldn't do before because I never did figure out the controls for skydiving until yesterday) and enjoying it, but I can't help but wonder if I'd enjoy 64 even more.

    The only Pilotwings game I've played is the one on 3DS. How do the SNES and N64 games compare to that one?

    In other news, the Game Gear Virtual Console release of Vampire: Master of Darkness is apparently really, really good. Anyone play that before?

    @GameDadGrant
    Besides the 3DS version I've only played the N64 version, which IMHO is a million times better, with at least a billion times more content.

    Hmm, should I upgrade Pilotwings after never, ever playing it??

    Why not!

    @deathly_hallows
    Wait, you think the N64 version has more content than the 3DS version? That's not how I remember it (although they reused Wuhu for Resort).
