Only 2-3 more weeks left for the Wii U Virtual Console, I imagine

    With the Switch only 3 weeks away, I think the Wii U Virtual Console is almost finished. In EU and JP, there's hardly been any games released. I could see these as the final VC games on the Wii U before the NS VC takes over on March 3, if the VC is ready at launch.

    February 23

    Pikmin 2: New Play Control! (Wii)
    Picross 3D (DS)

    March 2

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii)
    Super Smash Bros. (N64)

    It would be pretty cool if the NS was hacked to run any 3DS or Wii U VC games, but I doubt it.

    Wow, i'm surprised super smash bros brawl wasn't on VC but N64 smash bros is.

    It be sweet to inject a brawl mod into wii u system menu and play with game pad, or gamecube controllers. :)

    I always wonder why nintendo is stingey with the choice of games for virtual console? A Melee port has been high demand with HD for years and never do it. Just wait until you are hated enough for the dumb mistakes to drop it on us like Final Fantasy 7 remake huh? :creep:

    You just implied ENIX or whatever they're called now could be hated D:
    Brawl VC would be the greatest, it feels like they were a little lazy with the newest smash

    Are you saying i'm wrong? Or do we have to look at the ps4 reveal of final fantasy 7 again? :creep:

    No i'm not implying, i'm saying that until they decied to announce a remake for final fantasy 7 that they have been hate among them for it. Incluing the PC re-release of Final fantasy 7, being a square enix store purchase, coming with midi files instead of the original music files, then finally getting a steam port, then announcing the PC port will be on PS4. To finally saying a remake is now in production. Yes i am saying they were hated for that.

    Can you be a bit more specific why they were lazy with smash bros on wii u/3ds?

    While i do think is okay, is not better than brawl by any means. Is missing some content brawl had, including a full scale adventure mode. While brawl had the sub space mission, various bosse and stages based platforming, bunch of game modes like tournement, mini games and such, most of it is either missing or done differently, trophy slot machine are replaced with a store you can buy random trophies with, as well as trophy rush, no adventure mode, no tournement mode, missing some special brawl modes, "CHARACTERS" and others.

    To be honest, i think that this specific version of smash bros was focused more on the competitive aspect of the game, which is probably why i feel the game has been getting mixed opinions. It focused more on multiplayer in some ways and i guess that what they hoped for. 8 players is nice and all, but why can't it be done online? Also why do so many single player modes require Coins to even participate? You need coins to play harder difficulty in classic mode, and if you lose you lose coins and difficulty decreases, so you can never finish it on harder difficulty that way. Master's orders requires coins to play, and the crazy order require tickets you get at complete random. Smash tour is probably the most unused game, not sure about the smash run though, and the 3DS game is missing even more than wii u, the fact the rom file size is like less than 1.5 GB is bad, when games do exist up to 3GB, what reason could they have for not using all of the space for content?

    FF7 was boring anyway to me, as for the new smash game, it's just stale, yet I can still go back to brawl or melee and have the time of my life if that makes sense
    (Was gonna continue the convo on your profile or in pm but it won't let me comment D: )

    Well final fantasy 4 is best final fantasy anyway. :P

    But brawl has more content, melee has more broken game play, the issue with wiiu/3ds is probably the update feature, based on what i said before. Lacking content and broken game play. The updates to balance game play makes it less fun than it could be. Not saying updates are bad, but the fact a game like smash bros, have it, is what i think makes is falty, i don't believe this is a game that needed balance gameplay adjustments. Is not supposed to be a competitive fighting game, is supposed to be a fun party game, like bomberman. :)

    Also i pm you already, like a week ago :D

    Well since Zelda is getting DLC up until december 2017 on the Wii U they could easly throw some VC in the meantime. It's not like 13 million wii u users will just vanished like that.

    I know I know. These young people who played FF the first time serious on a NDS instead on a PS1. They just don't know that VII and IX are the best FF games ;) (Not sure why everyone loved VI that much...)

    For your information, i played final fantasy 7 first on a original playstation, and i own a ps3 downloaded Playstation store version, PC Steam version and ps4 version of the game. But final fantasy 4 is just better as in is been enhanced, while FF7 is the exact same game on all ports, until this remake is made i will stand by my claim as ff4 being my favorite.

    There is no need to speak negative of someone elses opinion, or make it seem like your opinion is absolute righteousness. Get used to others not agreeing with you cause it happens to everyone. :mellow:

    Yeah, but it feels USA eShop has been and is getting VC games really late. I remeber a GameXplain vid for the release of MK64 like 2 months ago while I have it installed on my Wii U since 2015 :P

    WUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT? I know a lot of people who agree to say Brawl is the worst Smash ever created. @Hayleia even calls it Super Mario Kart Brawl due to its pure randomness and broken-ness. I've played a bit of it recently and I agree. I put Smash 4 and Melee faaaaaaaaar above Brawl in terms of gameplay.

    because 6 was the last of the SNES games. I was younger when it came out, so maybe it's nostalgia. Dunno. FFIV was fun, but I played the original hard mode and could never quite beat the final boss. FF6 was the best of the bunch, as far as I'm concerned. It's still one of my favorites, and it's a shame it's never gotten a proper re-make or update.

    -but what about that mobile remake they did?
    -NEVER GOTTEN A PROPER RE-RELEASE!

    Same here, I like 4 more than Melee though, I find Melee to be way too fast (not the framerate, but animations) and feels way too floaty for me.

    Melee will ALWAYS be the best to me, but I did like the slight story thing they did with Brawl, that's really all I ever played xD

    7
    6
    9
    4

    that's the order

    even if ff7 never gets touched up for 100 years it's still better than FF4, and obviously i like FF4

    True this. But some people may have a Wii U only and still want to play the only Mario Kart game with an actual Captain Falcon in it instead of just his outfit and vehicle.

    Other than Super Mario RPG, we're missing a lot of classics like Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, ActRaiser, Soul Blazer, and Illusion of Gaia.

    The music was pretty good but overall it was still the weakest entry in the franchise. Even SSB4 on 3DS and Wii U were better games. I miss the target mini-game, though. Melee is still the best SSB game.

    FFVI is far and away the best. Much of the love for VII is Playstation nostalgia. Trying to go back and play VII is a chore that wears out its welcome very quickly. It was all edgy graphics and edgy characters, but the story really was lacking. VI on the other hand hand a full cast of interesting characters.
