European VC Update: Gotta Buy 'Em All Edition

From a mysterious darkened room in a place far from civilisation, one man's ongoing quest to tell people about the European Virtual Console continues...

Actually, I'm just in Canada and haven't opened the curtains yet. You get the idea though.

Game 1 - Pokemon Puzzle League
N64 - 1000 Points

For me, its points out the way immediately. This update to the classic Tetris Attack/Panel de Pon formula adds in the cylindrical 3D game mode and also lots of Pokemon flavoured cut scenes. What's not to like?

Game 2 - Burning Fight
Neo-Geo - 900 Points

SNK's attempt to take on Final Fight and Streets of Rage, so a side scrolling beat 'em up. Probably not worth it if you have Streets of Rage already.

Game 3 - Samurai Showdown
Neo-Geo - 900 Points

Top kicking teeth in action as the masters of the art give us another 2D fighter for you to get your Hori sticks around. Weapons are the focus of this one which I enjoy immensely and hugely recommend to all fans of the genre, who naturally have heard of and played it to death already. Right?

So that rare beast of an N64 game coupled with a double rarity of some Neo-Geo games. Its a damn fine week ladies and gentlemen.

njsykora is pronounced like this.

Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?
