Virtually Free: Superstarzzzzz

Alisha Karabinus

Wii Fanboy is happy to announce a new regular contest -- Virtually Free, where we will offer up a game or two from the Virtual Console to one lucky reader every other week. For our inaugural edition, we asked our resident retro fiend, JC Fletcher, to put together a pair of games, and he chose Phantasy Star II (Sega Genesis, 800 Wii points/$8) and one of this blogger's own favorites, StarTropics (NES, 500 Wii points/$5) His only stipulation? "Five zeds in the title, no more, no less." He just wasn't cool enough to say "zed." We editorialized a bit!

So what do you have to do to win? First of all, you have to leave a comment (with a valid e-mail address) on this post suggesting a game for a future edition of Virtually Free. It must be available on the VC in the U.S. at present. Second, you must be a legal resident of the United States with an American Wii (sorry, Canadians, we have to leave you out of this one; blame the gifting system and not us!) and 18 years of age or older. You may enter once per day between now and Sunday, April 6; the contest comes to a close that night at 11:59 PM Eastern time. Questions? Check out the official rules.

This is not, by the way, an April Fools' joke! The timing is purely coincidental. Well, maybe the title is.
