VC Friday: What gets Bonked in Vegas stays in Vegas

Just two releases this week for European gamers on the Virtual Console, and they're certainly pretty different. One is the casino game that featured interesting interaction via random encounters (and also, hey, gambling), and the other is, well, Bonk. Either of these sound like something that might...

VC Friday: Because older is better

We know at least one person who would probably approve of this week's European VC lineup ... but you're the one who matters. It's all old school this week, with two NES titles and one from Turbografx, just to mix it up a little. So kick back, relax, mix up the beverage of your choice, and enjoy a...

VC Friday: Digging holes and checking out ads

Looks like European gamers can take some time to check out updated ads while slicing through the waves on their jet skis this weekend if they are so inclined. Alas, only two games this week, but the streak couldn't keep going forever. Hey, at least it's not something like Revolution X or Captain...

VC Friday: Galaga breath

We're pretty sure we wouldn't want to smell Galaga breath (it reeks of intensity), but it makes for a great week on the Virtual Console for European gamers! Only three titles this fine Friday, but when you're talking about Galaga '90 and Breath of Fire II (oh, and some hot Volleyball action), what...

VC Friday: Shining Ninja

Four games again this week, with some really great variety, despite the fact that they come from only two consoles. Platformer? Check. Puzzle? Check. SRPG? Check. But you know what we're lusting over: awesome side-scrolling ninja action. C'mon, you knew what we would choose. We all have our biases....

VC Friday: Four, but not of a kind

This week's Virtual Console update for Europe is all about choice. Four games are on the block, and pretty much all they have in common is retro goodness. From pinball to pool to RPG, you can revel in whatever you like the best this weekend ... unless you like beat 'em ups or shooters, and the VC is...

VC Friday: Zonked on paper

It's an odd pairing for the weekend for European gamers -- the punk-influenced Air Zonk and the classically adorable Paper Mario! What do they both have in common? A light-hearted approach to gaming and solid offerings for their respective genres. That's something we can get behind. Air Zonk --...

VC Friday: Is it sequel day?

Hope you're in the mood for sequels today, because if you're itching for a new retro title, that's what Nintendo's offering up, at least when it comes to Sega. A couple of today's titles were also released in the U.S. this week, which means you can check out the video wrap-up for a little game...

Torrent of TurboGrafx-16 titles set for Australia's Virtual Console

Making up for its delayed arrival to Australia's Virtual Console, the TurboGrafx-16 will debut in the world's smallest continent next week with eleven releases! Hudson's VC site lists that over a third of the games will be shmups -- no big surprise there -- but classics like Dungeon Explorer,...

VC Friday: Wolves in dreamland

We can't ever get enough of Kirby around here. He's just so cute and puffy. So obviously, when we think Kirby, we think golf. Because, uh ... balls are round. Yep. And what goes well with golf? Commandos. Right. We don't get this week's pair of releases either, but hey ... maybe opposites really do...
