    For March 24, we have the following games:

    King's Knight/Console: Nintendo Entertainment System/Year: 1989/Price: $5


    Powerball/Console: Genesis/Year: 1991/Price: $8


    King's Knight is the first Squaresoft game to come to the Virtual Console, because the Enix game Actraiser came out almost a year ago.

          I'm hoping they add Super Mario Kart to the VC soon.

              Well Drakon, uh, TurboDuo said that King's Knight was the first Square game to come to the VC, so... I kinda doubt it's there.

                      I loved Cruisin' USA, one of my favorite N64 games, I may download that. And I'm glad the Master System is finally on the U.S. VC, I wasn't a big fan of Wonder Boy but I am looking forward to the Alex Kidd games.

                          That's cool because I have a lot of SEGA Master System favorites. But why couldn't we get the arcade versions of both those games? I mean if they could get those arcade games to run on Dreamcast with mame, why not on Wii Virtual Console?

                            I downloaded Wonder Boy. It's a pretty good game.

                              That's....a good question. Maybe the home versions are close enough to the arcade version? And maybe they actually have a way to lose instead of just running out of quarters?

                                Next time think before you speak Billy Lee. Cruisin' USA on 64 is NOTHING LIKE THE ARCADE! Wonderboy is like the arcade, but watered down. Try this genius, like games with unlimited continues- don't continue or limit yourself... Wow what a concept!

                                        Bases Loaded was great back in the day. It's pretty useless now with stuff like MLB 08 The Show out there, but that was probably one of my top 5 most-played NES games.
