    ...but only for Europe at the moment. Not to worry, I'm sure Nintendo will release it elsewhere shortly.

    Good news for those who like buying old games for an emulator! It'll be the first N64 Virtual Console game that uses the Expansion Pak.

    Japans getting it this month as well. Hopefully this leads to some improvement in WAD injection. Only for those rare games of course. Those are never hitting the VC.

    It goes back to the wii menu, I think it's some protection. (Or it only works on 4.0E)

    Goldeneye doesn't work after injecting into the wad. It starts the spinning N logo and then freezes

    Finally! I've been wanting a chance to legitimately play this game for years. I tried to emulate it on my PC years ago, and it worked well, but it's impossible to beat with a keyboard. [​IMG]

    I can confirm that as well. I have just put both this and ocarina on the wii with every intention of finishing them. I cant believe I have waited this long to do so though.

    Which should I play first? Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask?

    I'd probably say Ocarina of Time. The amazing amount of Cameos in Majora's Mask (due to Termina being an alternate reality of Hyrule) will probably woo you more if you've experienced them all first in Ocarina of Time.

    I'll install OoT then first.
