VC in Brief: Aero the Acro-Bat (SNES)

I gotta be honest with you guys: I thought I'd never get a chance to do one of these videos ever again.

VC in Brief: Mario Tennis (N64)

Mario Tennis is a pretty important game for two reasons: 1.) it's made by Camelot -- you know, the same guys doing Golden Sun: Dark Dawn -- and 2.) it's one of the best semi-modern Tennis games starring Mario and crew.

VC in Brief: Zaxxon (VC Arcade)

This week's Virtual Console release is Sega's Zaxxon for the VC Arcade, an isometric viewpoint shmup from the early '80s.

VC in Brief: Ironclad (Neo Geo)

This week's Virtual Console release should please fans of intense shmups, because that's exactly what Ironclad is! It's quite the example of how to make a really fun and intense shoot-em-up -- yet, many may be a bit apprehensive due to its hefty price tag. Well, that's what VC in Brief is for!...

VC in Brief: Ogre Battle 64 (N64)

This week's VC in Brief can be described with one word: epic. Seriously, Ogre Battle 64 is one of the more huge games on the N64 console.
