Once again, Nintendo and company see fit to release three games I never knew I wanted. Gradius III (SNES, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points); Wonder Boy in Monster World (Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points); Battle Lode Runner (TurboGrafx 16, 1-5 players, 600 Wii Points).
Most interesting about this round of Virtual Console games is the release of Battle Lode Runner, a game that has previously not seen the light of day in North America. Based off the original computer game (which had players running around collecting gold while avoiding robots), the TurboGrafx 16 version of the game features improved slightly improved graphics and a 5-player battle mode.
But just because it's the most notable game this time around, doesn't mean it'll be worth your cash. If you had to choose one title out of this lot, what would it be?
