The Wii U update is finally here, and with it, the Virtual Console has launched today in North America. While the choices are far from impressive, mostly consisting of promotional $0.30 games that were already offered, I'm just glad the Virtual Console is finally here, and hopefully Nintendo won't stagger releases as much as they have in the past.

Today, you can pick up Super Mario World ($7.99 - yeesh), Ice Climber ($4.99), Kirby's Adventure ($0.30 temporarily, $4.99 regularly), Donkey Kong Jr. ($4.99), Balloon Fight ($4.99), Excitebike ($4.99), Punch Out!! ($4.99), and F-Zero ($7.99). If you already own an NES game, you can pay $1 to upgrade to the Wii U version, or pay $1.50 for SNES games. You'll net customizable controls, remote play, restore points (save states), and Miiverse support for your upgrade.

As a recap, that's only the NES and SNES available right now. I've already had my fill with the anniversary games, so I don't think I'll quadruple dip on Super Mario World just yet.

Europe gets Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire on Wii U this week

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
