Nintendo has revealed the games North American Wii U users can look forward to when the Virtual Console officially launches and ... well ... it's not exactly overwhelming. In fact, here's the full library. Try not to strain your eyes with all the reading:

  • Balloon Fight
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Excitebike
  • Ice Climber
  • Kirby's Adventure
  • Punch Out!!
  • F-Zero
  • Super Mario World

It'll hardly break the bank to obtain all eight, and many have already expressed disappointment. I do find it puzzling, I must admit. Nintendo has access to so many games, it's really not in danger of running out anytime soon. Why it persists with this drip-fed rationing of its releases, I do not know -- especially when the Wii U's hurting for some excitement. 

Still, Nintendo's gonna Nintendo.

A new pinball game out of Nintendo sure would be delightful. The time is right (because the time is always right for well-made pinball spinoff games). I don't see that happening anytime soon, granted, but there's always Pok&e...more

Mighty Gunvolt's DLC levels are worth the few bucks they cost

Mighty Gunvolt has just acquired some DLC and it's cheap, ringing in at $2.99. So what do you get? Four stages, and subsequently, four boss battles. That's it. There's no fanfare for the new levels or new story -- they'...more
