And now, some news that is simultaneously awesome and depressing. Hudson is (officially) bringing Turbografx-16 games to iPhone and iPod Touch "this winter" in a free TurboGrafx Gamebox app. It'll launch with a library of $3.99 games, and will include one, the Olympic-style World Sports Competition,...

Don't worry, Bonk fans. The PlayStation Store's expansion into TurboGrafx territory won't remain a Japan-only affair. Hudson confirmed to Siliconera that it plans to port its classics onto the North American PSN -- although it didn't provide a time frame. Japanese gamers can already download a var...

People, say hello to the 250th title on the combined PAL Virtual Consoles: it's ... one of the below. Woohoo! Let's say Ys Book I and II, as that's the one this blogger is most looking forward to trying out. On a sadder note, this is the last week of the current Hanabi Festival; we shall remember ...

It's been hard not to feel totally pampered by recent PAL Virtual Console updates, with the likes of Phantasy Star II and Street Gangs keeping us up late. This week's releases -- both of which are shooters -- can't quite match that kind of awesomeness, but they're still worth considering. Super Turr...

After a quiet couple of weeks on the European and Aussie Virtual Consoles, this week is ... no different whatsoever. Just a single game is on offer to PAL Wii owners this Friday, with Lords of Thunder on the block for 800 points. This blogger won't pretend to be familiar with Hudson's Turbografx-16 ...

You do? Great! And do you also recall how N64 games would occasionally pop up on the Virtual Console? No? Well, we can't blame you if it slipped your mind. It's been almost three months since PAL gamers last saw an N64 game on the VC (for the record, it was Yoshi's Story), but this week sees the fuz...

We've already discussed how much of a holy mess the Wonder Boy series is, and today European and Australian folk will be able to sample a small part of the jumbled franchise, with the release of Monster Lair, as it appeared on the Turbografx-16 (a Sega Mega Drive version appeared a year later, th...

Though the official European Nintendo site still seems to be down, the Virtual Console is working overtime to bring you games you may not have heard of at high prices. Ain't life grand? It is if you happen to be into more obscure games, and even the "pricey" ones really aren't. Baseball Stars 2 ...

This week, European gamers have another crack at the Neo Geo, and they can get their golf on if they are so inclined ... but somehow, we just have a feeling that the most popular title will also be the cheapest. Gee, could it be that a few people might be a little excited about Super Mario Bros. 3? ...

It's another Friday, and lately, that means Neo Geo games! Plus, y'know, some other stuff, which is usually pretty pricey, as VC titles goes. But this week, European gamers get a little break with a release out there for only 600 points. On top of that, there's four games from which Wii owners may c...

Just two releases this week for European gamers on the Virtual Console, and they're certainly pretty different. One is the casino game that featured interesting interaction via random encounters (and also, hey, gambling), and the other is, well, Bonk. Either of these sound like something that might ...

We know at least one person who would probably approve of this week's European VC lineup ... but you're the one who matters. It's all old school this week, with two NES titles and one from Turbografx, just to mix it up a little. So kick back, relax, mix up the beverage of your choice, and enjoy a li...

Looks like European gamers can take some time to check out updated ads while slicing through the waves on their jet skis this weekend if they are so inclined. Alas, only two games this week, but the streak couldn't keep going forever. Hey, at least it's not something like Revolution X or Captain Nov...

We're pretty sure we wouldn't want to smell Galaga breath (it reeks of intensity), but it makes for a great week on the Virtual Console for European gamers! Only three titles this fine Friday, but when you're talking about Galaga '90 and Breath of Fire II (oh, and some hot Volleyball action), what e...

Four games again this week, with some really great variety, despite the fact that they come from only two consoles. Platformer? Check. Puzzle? Check. SRPG? Check. But you know what we're lusting over: awesome side-scrolling ninja action. C'mon, you knew what we would choose. We all have our biases. ...

This week's Virtual Console update for Europe is all about choice. Four games are on the block, and pretty much all they have in common is retro goodness. From pinball to pool to RPG, you can revel in whatever you like the best this weekend ... unless you like beat 'em ups or shooters, and the VC is...

It's an odd pairing for the weekend for European gamers -- the punk-influenced Air Zonk and the classically adorable Paper Mario! What do they both have in common? A light-hearted approach to gaming and solid offerings for their respective genres. That's something we can get behind. Air Zonk -- ...

Hope you're in the mood for sequels today, because if you're itching for a new retro title, that's what Nintendo's offering up, at least when it comes to Sega. A couple of today's titles were also released in the U.S. this week, which means you can check out the video wrap-up for a little game foota...

We can't ever get enough of Kirby around here. He's just so cute and puffy. So obviously, when we think Kirby, we think golf. Because, uh ... balls are round. Yep. And what goes well with golf? Commandos. Right. We don't get this week's pair of releases either, but hey ... maybe opposites really do...
