    The "Everybody Votes" channel went live today. Which is apparently a polling channel which features regional, national, and worldwide polls. Users can submit their own suggestions for questions.

    If Sin & Punishment comes to the Wii through VC, it's the ultimate score. Hell, if they go to Japanese only titles, could they do some of the Japanese only titles from way back.. Sega, NES? There are TONS I would be interested in seeing (like versions of FF that were only Japanese releases)

    For those that have never played it or no longer have a copy, this is a must own. Ocarina of Time is easily one of the greatest games ever created.

    The VC really has become a very impressive feature. Even without the Wii itself, the VC alone is almost enough to justify owning the system.

    I agree, but I really wish the prices were a tad better. Cost is usually twice what I can buy a cartdrige for at a game store or pawn shop, if you can find the particular game that is.

    I downloaded Tecmo Bowl, and got slapped around by the AI in my first game, granted it was 2 a.m. and I was pretty tired...

    Yeah, how many hours I wasted as a kid on tecmo bowl. I just ran the score up on the AI.. run the sweep! Run the sweep! [​IMG]
    I agree, the VC is my favorite feature. My kids and I are still playing the daylights out of Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past.. god I love that game.

    I believe the SEGA Saturn is coming, but it's just a matter of "when?". First Nintendo would be wise to enable support for external USB2 hard drives to compensate for the Wii's lack of internal storage capacity. I believe the SD card expansion only supports cards up to 2GBs in size.
    Don't forget that NeoGeo and MSX are also coming. SEGA Master System is rumored to be in pipeline as well.
    Also in case anyone missed it - here are the games released to the US Virtual Console yesterday
    1. Excitebike (NES - 500 Points)
    2. Beyond Oasis (SEGA Genesis - 800 Points)
    3. Splatterhouse (TurboGrafx-16 - 600 Points)

    Saturn is the news I've been waiting for. Saturn is responsible for (IMHO) the best Role-playing games ever. Bar none. A lot of the greats have been since re-released on PS, like Lunar, and Arc the Lad, but still, can anyone say "Shining Force"? Woot!
