This week's VC releases: Dolphin Park is in the house

Nintendo must have heard my cries last week, when I whined about receiving the "Wii-kly Update" e-mails late, or not even getting them at all. I woke up this morning to an e-mail that was sent at 8:01 a.m., which was 19 minutes be...

Today's VC releases: I just woke up edition

Today is Memorial Day, which in the United States is a federal holiday. In many ways, it marks a true first day of summer -- pools open, we cook out, and many people even have off from work. Such is not the case with Nintendo (or myself, it...

Today's VC releases: we heart ninjas edition

This week's Virtual Console releases are surprisingly solid for a batch that contains zero first party Nintendo classics. By "surprisingly solid" I mean, of course, two of the three titles not only contain the word "ninja...
