That's right, people. The Virtual Console for Wii U is officially LIVE as of now. As for the N64 & GBA games they said were coming, well, I don't see any. Another time...
Regardless, the games that are up are pretty good, even though you're likely to have copies of them in some fashion or another. Is Gamepad support enough for you to get another copy of Super Mario World? I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted for that one specifically.
In any case, I hope they don't squander the potential of this VC like they have with the 3DS one.
Here's to hoping. *drinks Captain Morgan from the bottle*
Hey; let's play some games that aren't way old.
New to Friday Night Fights? It's easy to get involved!
Each week, a bunch of us Dtoiders get together to play videogames online! It's a 100% community-run event, so feel free to join in or even host something yourself!
The planning for FNF starts in the forums, where community members volunteer to host matches and post their pertinent details (game, time, Nintendo ID, etc.). Then, every Friday, reminder posts go up here in the C blogs followed by a recap post on the front page on the front page for last-minute planning.
To join in, simply send a friend request to the match host! (Don't forget to say you're from Dtoid!) If you'd rather host something yourself, just post your details below in the following format:
Game: Game Name Platform Wii, 3DS, or Wii U
Host: Dtoid Username Nintendo ID: Nintendo ID Friend Code: For Wii & 3DS Time: Time (Eastern please!)
We hope to see you online! ________________________
