Virtual Console

Two games this week: Ninja Gaiden III (NES-500 points), and Phantasy Star II (Genesis-800 points)

Feb. 18, 2008

Some gamers get skeptical when Roman numerals populate the title of a game. But make no mistake - this week's offerings are no mere sequels. They are some of the most highly regarded classic games around. So stock up on some Wii Points™ to battle the Dark Force or complete an action-packed trilogy.

Nintendo adds new games to the Wii™ Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time every Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week's new games are:

Ninja Gaiden™ III: The Ancient Ship of Doom: (NES®, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone - Mild Violence, 500 Wii Points): Join master ninja Ryu Hayabusa, last member of the famous Dragon Clan, in the third and final chapter of the legendary Ninja Gaiden saga. Ryu is framed for FBI agent Irene Lew's murder, and it's up to him to clear his name. Defeating superior life-forms created out of "life energy" called BIO-NOIDs and avoiding enemy ambushes are among the many obstacles which Ryu faces in this unpredictable adventure of mystery, deceit and destruction. Noticeable changes to the game-play mechanics include Ryu's ability to grab on to horizontal surfaces, his reduced falling speed and altered jumping maneuvers, and visible power-ups. Help Ryu defeat the forces of evil once more and discover the real culprit behind Irene's death as one of the most loved trilogies in video-game history comes to a close.

Phantasy Star™ II: (Sega Genesis, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone - Mild Animated Violence, 800 Wii Points): Hailed as one of the greatest games of all time by fans and media alike, Phantasy Star II is an RPG that features an epic story line and turn-based battles. Play as Rolf, Nei, Rudo or several other characters as you navigate through the Algol star system battling the evil Dark Force. Build your characters, select the right weapons and armor, and take on the forces of evil through various missions as you find the right combination of characters to complete each objective. Experience the magic once again in this great sequel.

Xbox Live

The internet flash game N+ is headed to XBLA and should be ready to download on Wednesday. 450 levels, Co-op and multiplayer, both olnie, AND a level editor. For 800 points, you can enjoy this slice of ninja action. This and Ninja Gaiden in the same week? Cool.

New section: Stinkys Playlist

I got a new section for you guys: Stinkys Playlist. Sure, new games are great, but I'm a cheap guy, and I love to replay old games in my collection.

This week in Stinkys Playlist is the wonderful Advance Wars; No, not the new one, I'm talking about the awesome Dual Strike.

I finally beat hard mode this weekend. It was a gruelling task, and my time clocked in at 162 hours. But I did it. I stopped playing at mission 24, but after returning tihs week, I ploughed through a few, and reached the end.

I'd definitely recommend Advance Wars. Its super long, and I swear, the game cant remember whether its supposed to be hard or easy. The game eases you in with the first few missions, and difficulty gradually builds. Halfway through the game, and the hardness is like the biggest rollercoaster in the most undecicive theme park in the world.

Do you like this new section? dont forget to comment!

sorry for spelling/grammar issues. English is not my first language and I'm using a shoddy keyboard. My new one should arrive soon   read
