VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 6/11/07


It feels good to come back from our break, revitalized and energized, to bring you the coverage you desire. We picture a giant smile on your collective faces, glad that we took the time to make this video and provide you with the coverage we do. Of course, the reality probably is that you could care less and are laughing at how ridiculous I sound. Not to mention how bad I am at Lode Runner.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

How can you not love Sonic 2? It's an amazing game and one of the industry's most-respected franchises (well, at one time it was). Including a sidekick for Sonic this time around, the game brought forth lots of other additions, as well. For 800 points, it's easily worth it.

Golden Axe II (Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

Golden Axe II is a fun hack-and-slash game and one great way to game with a friend on the Virtual Console. Screen-clearing magic spells, mounts and headbutting with the dwarf (too damn good) come together to provide one great medievil experience. 800 points? Sure, we'll pay it!

Lode Runner (NES, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

I suck at Lode Runner. Still, even though my skills are lacking, it's an incredibly fun and (for me, at least) challenging play. Easily worth the 500 points that Nintendo is demanding for the game, we believe. Oh, and the level editor is nice.

As always, if you have any tips or rumors regarding Nintendo's Virtual Console service, be sure to let us know and come back next week when we take a look at the latest titles available on the Nintendo Wii.
