      Jeff Gerstmann will be pleased.

        Still seems like pretty meager fare though. At least it's better than last week.

          I think he meant that they finally released a game about Jeff Gerstmann

        A Monsteca Corral was originally released August 16, 2010; Jeff Green read that week of Nintendo downloads in what was probably the best Nintendo Downloads series of 2010.

        Original roster:

        - Space Trek ("Whoa! What's the ESRB rating on this?! Simulated Racism?")
        - A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots ("I had a bad case of the Stompies...")
        - Divergent Shift (insert lazy DSiWare description copywriter jokes here)
        - 3D Mahjong ("Hey, this one's going to get better... no, wait, it's that same guy again.")
        - myNotebook: Carbon ("...or even play your favorite pen-and-paper games.. GAMES NOT INCLUDED!")
        - Just SING! National Anthems (Jeff Gerstmann erupts in laughter on hearing the game title).

        Still one of my favorite Nintendo Download sections to listen to, alongside November 9, 2010, when Alex Navarro read them.

      If you check out Game Informer's recent replay of Metal Warrior, the last 20 minutes of the video is a replay of Super Bonk and it is quite hilarious to watch.

      Heh, that game is pretty wacky and fun. However I'm still annoyed they are so slow at releasing games. Still PLENTY of SNES and N64 games to release.

        Yup, only about a billion of them.

          I'd like to play FFVI on my TV without having to use an emulator. Don't even re-translate it, just throw it up there. They did it with FFIV (FF2) and no one likes that shitty mistranlated version.

            Yup, most frustrating part is it looks like a lot of the games I want on there never will be. Earthbound and a bunch of the RARE N64 titles (Jet Force Gemini, Donkey Kong 64, etc.).

              I want DK64 and Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon(the first N64 one). Both have major emulation issues

      Is $8.00 the norm for a Wii Virtual Console game?

        Once the Network Update scheduled for May hits, it should grant access to the DSiWare shop.
