    That's all for now, folks.

    If you've got suggestions, please give them.

    They already released Super Mario Brothers the Hidden Levels, or whatever it's called, on the US VC a WHILE ago. Any Japanese exclusive game released on the VC will have an "import" tag on it. There are already a few out there. Old news. Completely old news. If you didn't know that already, then try to actually check the shop once in a while.

    Still no Harvest Moon 64? Why release the snes one and not this one, especially since it's 100 times better. Nintendo is starting to fail.
