OK, we're used to Japan getting cool stuff before us. That's OK -- they saved the game industry after Atari botched things up
, so it's only fair that they get Final Fantasy
games early. But now we hear
that Europe is getting Virtual Console games like Punch Out
, Legend of the Mystical Ninja
and Dragon Curse
before us red-blooded Americans. Doesn't Nintendo know that Europe is supposed to get everything last? Maybe they can take some pointers from Sony
on that score.
I suppose we shouldn't be too mad about this, since all these games have been available for other systems for over a decade. But it's the principle of the thing. We declared our independence from European mastery back in 1776, and yet those old-worlders still get to lord their downloadable classics over us hundreds of years later. It's just not right!
