@ploot I don't know why they don't use the arcade version. Remember when Nintendo rolled out the Virtual Console Arcade?
If Nintendo had movies on their service, I'd say they should just do a King of Kong cross promotion where you could get the movie and the arcade version of DK :). Or maybe if you buy King of Kong on DVD, you can get a promotional code for DK on the VC.
The weird thing is, they ARE! Or rather, they have been. Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and Game Gear games on 3DS have had variable pricing, depending on the game. Not sure why they are so stubborn when it comes to NES games.
Yeah...this week is um, weak. But I suppose after several Thursdays in a row with quality stuff (Shantae, Earthbound, SteamWorld Dig, Picross-e 2, and Ducktales) I suppose one "off" week isn't too terrible of a thing to "suffer" through. Plus the Wii U has that new Splinter Cell game available, so it's not all bad.
