    ART STYLE???
    *reads closer*
    ...oh. Arc, you sneaky bastards.

    And no Yumi's Odd Odyssey. Guess they were just kidding about the January release.

    Still no Mega Man GB games, either. Not a peep out of Capcom or Nintendo in months. Not since they said they were aiming for 2013.


    What a disappointing day...

    Mario Bros. Not Super Mario Bros. 3, even though we were promised that last year.

    smh.

    Still waiting on Mega Man, too.

    Greatest game of all time drops today. This is the one game on VC that I will abuse the tablet play with.

    You should update the OP to include 60% off the Super Indie Connection Sale.

    I'll upgrade my Wii version for $1.50.

    And I always chuckle knowing someone will purchase Mario Bros thinking it's Super Mario Bros.

    This should be in the OP

    (If you have already downloaded any of these games, you have discounts on the other games.)

    Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Black Forest Games | $5.99 until 02/13, then $14.99)
    Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition (WayForward | $3.99 until 02/13, then $9.99)
    BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (Gaijin Games | $5.99 until 02/13, then $14.99)
    Spin the Bottle: Bumpie's Party (Knapnok Games | $3.60 until 02/13, then $8.99)
    Toki Tori 2+ (Two Tribes Publishing | $5.99 until 02/13, then $14.99)


    I already have Runner 2, so I'll be grabbing Giana Sisters, TT2+ and maybe Spin the Bottle? Is that game fun for 2 players or need more?

    God this VC is so fucking horrible. No SNES games and SMB3 has been on the "coming soon" tab since BEFORE I GOT MY FUCKING 3DS MONTHS AGO.

    Who is running this stupid bullshit?! What is the purpose of holding the game back so long?!

    No SNES games? Oh you have a 3DS LAWL.

    3DS can steal my NES games, but they can't steal my beautiful SNES games!

    The VC is a total shitshow, it hurts the brain to even fathom the amount of incompetence it takes to screw up a concept as wonderful as vintage Nintendo games emulated on modern systems.

    @carlosrox

    There should be no theft! Let the systems share!

    That's another thing, the fact that each system gets separate VCs is utterly ludicrous. That's a part of why it's such a pile of fucking trash.

    You wanna play your Gameboy games on your HD TV, eh?

    @GameDadGrant I do! Especially if we vet Super Game Boy color options. But even if we don't.

    Did you guys know WB titles on the Wii U eShop are on sale? Neither did I or anyone on the planet!

    What the fucking fuck? I only found out by visiting the eShop. Scribblenauts Unlimited for $20... I had been waiting for this!

    Why are these sales kept secret!?

    @GameDadGrant I play them on my monitor, why not?!

    @Guillaume No clue, man. You have to scroll all the way to the right to see the WB logo for sales.

    Apparently they might be permanent price drops and not sales.

    I wish Nintendo had some blog or some place where you could see these things. All they have is the press release they send out each week, a press release that didn't contain this info, and that NWR doesn't receive anymore for some reason no one has explained.
