Well, this is a surprise: A week with two Virtual Console releases. And all from Hudson? We guess Nintendo liked that fruitcake from last year's Virtual Console participant party. As usual, feel free to watch this week's releases in motion above or, if you're more for images of the motionless variety, head past the break. Or ... do both.

Go ahead, go mad with power.

Detana Twin Bee (Hudson, TurboGrafx16, 1 - 2 players, 700 Wii Points)
We say: do not download

Oh, look, another shmup. Even though it's one from Japan that we've never had the chance to play, in an environment that already way too full of shmups, this game fails to set itself apart from the crowd. It has tried and true conventions of the genre, but with so many other shmups vying for your Wii Points (some even imports themselves and made by the same company), it's hard to point folks toward this one.


Bomberman '94 (Hudson, TurboGrafx16, 1 - 5 players, 700 Wii Points)
We say: download it!

Who doesn't love Bomberman? Nazis, probably. You're not a Nazi, are you? Prove it. By loving Bomberman. (Note: It's Bomberman. Do you really need an in-depth paragraph on that?)

Every week, we like to check out what's new on the Virtual Console. We offer these videos as a sort of taste to help you decide whether or not you would want the game in question. We also toss in our own two cents because we're pushy jerks.
