VC Friday: Taking a breather


After the joy/expense of WiiWare's Euro and Aussie launch, Nintendo has put its feet up and given us just the one game this Friday: the Commodore 64's Paradroid. We're totally okay with that! As our credit cards have already endured a thorough battering this week, they could do with the break. Breathe easy again, our little plastic friends.

Not massively familiar with Paradroid myself, though its Wikipedia page makes it sound like the ideal preparation for the inevitable war between humans and robots. One thing I am aware of is that Paradroid is discussed in hushed, reverent tones by those in the know, so if any of my fellow Old People would like to enthuse about it in the comments, be my guest. The rest of you can take in some footage of the game past the break.

  • Paradroid -- Commodore 64 -- 500 Wii Points*
* Only in Europe. Sucks to be Australia.
