Waverace 64, Lolo, Galaga 90 now on Virtual Console

Justin McElroy

With the top new retail release and a really solid lineup on Virtual Console, we think you have to give the win to the Wii this week. We're not sure of the new XBLA or PSN releases, but we bet they'll have a hard time topping these selections.

Wave Race 64 (Nintendo 64, 1-2 players, 1,000 Wii Points): Back in the day (as the kids say) we loved, loved, loved Wave Race 64, almost to the point that we're a little nervous about seeing how it's held up in the decade since its release. We hope we're not paying a sawbuck to have our childhood kicked in the crotch.

Adventures of Lolo (NES, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): This is another one we have fond memories of, and we're a little less worried about how it's fared. After all, a solid puzzle game is enjoyable forever, ask Alexey Pajitnov. If it's undone by anything, it'll be the music, an endless loop, driving players ever closer to the dark edge of madness.

Galaga 90 (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): You know what it's a lot like? Galaga.

Look for these new releases after 12 p.m., EST.
