The Wii was the only system getting any love at retail this week, but the six suspicious titles being released make that kind of a mixed blessing. That exact same phrase can be applied to this week's Virtual Console titles. Don't you love it when a plan comes together?
Bubble Bobble (NES, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): Talk about games that need a 3D update, Bubble Bobble is it. Imagine a game just like Lair, except all of the dragons shoot bubbles and collect produce. Oh ... and it's fun to play.
Light Crusader (Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): When you sell fish to cats in today's games, you probably start wondering where that now seemingly ubiquitous gameplay feature got its start. The answer? Right here, in this Treasure-developed isometric action RPG. Check the video at 4:40 for history in the making.
Top Hunter (NeoGeo, 1-2 players, 900 Wii Points): The video that we saw of this odd game seems sort of Metal Slug-esque, except the lead character's fists are really stretchy. Yeah, we don't get it either.
