Why not sign up for a (free) account?

Cool beans, retweeted! Couldn't have said it better myself.

Wow. Super Mario Land, Link's Awakening, and Donkey Kong 94 within a week of launch. The 3DS VC is beginning strong.

I'm anxious to see what the third parties will bring to the table, though, if anything. VC support will dry off quickly if Nintendo's the only one supporting it.

I think the Wii VC shows it will dry off quickly regardless. That's why we should enjoy the snot out of right now, when things are new and exciting and goin' on. Party time now, we can worry about tomorrow tomorrow! *dance*

Picked up Donkey Kong! Time to see what the hype is about.

Just hit Stage 2-1 of Donkey Kong and taking a break to do some super exciting errand running.

This game is just as awesome as I remember it being. The lack of color feels a bit weird at first since that was how I played it back then, but I got over that rather quickly.

We're still getting good games almost 5 years later.

I dusted off then played through DK94 a couple months ago on my Super Game Boy. I will be buying it again. Awesome gem of a game.

Same here, except I discovered the game for the first time a few months ago. It's terrific! Between that and LA, the 3DS VC already has a couple of the all-time best Game Boy games. Not bad at all!

MM5 is a solid title too, although I was a little more excited when I thought it was the GB MMV (solely because I already own two versions of the NES one).

Apparently the eShop doesn't know what it's selling. It has the DK94 release year as 1981. Blerg.

Aw, DK94 is such a good fucking game. I'm jealous of all of you.

The eShop had a rough night last night. DSiWare slipped something into its drink and took advantage of it. Give it a break.

Yeah, I was tricked into thinking it was the Gameboy version of Mega Man V, too. I thought it was odd they would do that, wouldn't they want to start with the first one? But now I see it's the NES version on Wii. Which is still cool, but I really want to get the old Gameboy Mega Man games again. I honestly enjoyed those more than the NES originals.

Oh, it gets a break for being so amazing in such short time. But it had better clean itself up and get tested tomorrow.

Regarding MMV, I will buy every Mega Man Game Boy game. I was upset when the portable Anniversary Collection was cancelled (did they lose the code or something?).

Wait, I'm confused. Is there an NES game in the 3DS Virtual Console then?

Posted by

I was totally upset when that fell through, too. I have no idea what happened to it. I would have bought that collection. I would have bought it SO hard.


No, Mega Man 5 is on the Wii's Virtual Console. Check the OP again, it's labeled as such.

@GameDadGrant and @ploot

I think I actually still have $5 credit at Gamestop because it got canceled...
