VC Monday Madness video wrap-up 7/23/07


As if last week wasn't enough pain and suffering, this week has just doubled it. Multiple times did we upload the file to YouTube, in its native AVI state, only to have a file with sound, yet no video, returned to us. Then, we decided to convert the file from AVI to WMV, but, again, we only got back a file of sound, no video. And, as we sat defeated and drained, none other than new recruit Mike Sylvester walked in and showed us how to fix it. Without him, we are lost.

So, everyone thank Mike for making this week's video possible and be sure to head past the post break for the usual.

Devil's Crush (TurboGrafx16, 1-2 players, 600 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

As far as pinball games go, this one ranks right up near the top with Star Trek. It has a lot of depth for a pinball game and, frankly, is the "best vaguely-occult-themed pinball video game we've ever played." Seriously, get it and play it.

Kirby's Dream Course (Super NES, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: do not download

Oh, how we wish we could get our time spent on this title back. It's a horrible excuse for a Kirby game and a horrible excuse for a golf game. Kirby's Dream Course is a nightmare of repetition and easily forgotten. Leave this one outside to die in the cold.

Shining Force (Sega Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points)
Wii Fanboy says: download it!

An incredibly deep strategic RPG, Shining Force is one great piece of gaming. Featuring your usual good vs. evil storyline (a young and inexperienced fighter leads his band of heroes on a quest to save all from the Dark Dragon), it has everything RPG junkies need to get their fix. If you're a fan of the genre, definitely give this a download.

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.
