    Wow OoT is a good game but NOT worth 1200 points for the god damn rom, I hope they won't pull that shit over here, it just won't jive.

    The VC is really starting to take off in Japan with a hell alot of titles available although they seem to be more expensive than they are here.

    For once the Japanese seem to get the rough end of the stick in terms of pricing.


    Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."

    I'd rather have fewer but cheaper games than loads that are more expensive. I'm willing to wait for the good ones for a cheaper price over here in the UK.

    I don't need OoT or MM, I have the OoT Masters Quest disc for GC, which runs at 60Hz and the Collectors edition of zelda which has everything except Link to The Past, which will be the only zelda game i'll download off the VC!

    Should have mentioned than in Japan the points to cash ratio is better. 1 point =

    Really want Fire Emblem Smilie
    Yeah me too I'm praying that they translate them, or even wiimake them, I'm hoping that it may be included in the "original Content".

    Personally DK64 and Majora's Mask are the two big ones i looking on the N64, as well as Street Fighter on the SNES and Streets of Rage on the Mega Drive.

    Me: Mario Kart 64, Streets of Rage and Fire Emblem, please.

    Wii Shop:That'll be 2,500 points.

    BOMB JACK!

    So far I've bought:

    - The Legend of Zelda
    - Sim City
    - Super Castlevania IV
    - Super Probotector
    - Street Fighter 2
    - Mario Kart 64

    Not sure about any others...contemplating Gunstar Heroes, but will wait for Super R-Type on the SNES, instead of the Turbo version.

    arrgh must have Bomb Jack, awesome gameplay.


    MKWii FC 4081-5636-6351 <<-- add me SSBB FC 2707-3062-7319 <<-- add me

    1,200 points for Ocarina of Time? You're having a laugh!

    When is Europe getting Mario Kart 64 and OoT? Those are two of the games im really looking forward to! Im hoping that Lylat Wars and Starwing get released some time soon aswell


    Mario Kart 64 was last friday... and multi player on it is shite.

    1200 points - which equal 1200 Yen - would be 7,60 EUR (5 GBP). Now 1000 Wiipoints in Germany cost 10 EUR (6,60 GBP), so Ocarina would be 12 EUR (7,92 GBP).

    Galaga... *lol* cute and always wanted to play it, but it's only Space Invaders and something of outdated... I do not know what to get from that list.
    I want to buy Zelda aLttp. But it's not out in Europe yet...

    I find your lack of faith disturbing!

    I bought Alterd Beast I feel like killin myself IM so stupid I should of stuck with Gun Star Heroes

    RISE from your grave!
    Power UP!
    Welcome to your DOOM!
    Altered Beast was bad ass. Smilie

    Streets of Rage, when that makes it here I will celebrate, as it isn't in Sega Mega Drive Collection. I do question why Sword of Vermillion is being released without Phantasy Star II-IV, Phantasy Star IV is brilliant.

    The lineup is looking quite good, although I would like to see some more N64 games. Ocarina of Time should be 1000 points though.

    Yay Wonderboy and Ghouls n Ghosts (snes), yet another opportunity to complete it. LS ( still hope the release the PC engine version also)

    I am really looking forward to some N64 games that I have't played. At the moment the two on the VC are games I own or have completed. Sin and Punishment is a game that has always appealed to me and I would love it to become available.
