Virtual Console Games tend to be cheaper that other games you can get in the store, but they can be no less fun at times. I just bought MegaMan 2 Gameboy recently, and I've been having fun trying to get a fatal run play through of the game (beat the whole thing on one life/die once, start over). It's not as good as the NES game, but it's a bit cheaper, has new music, is a bit easier, and in it's own right is still a pretty good game.

I'm almost tempted to try out some more Virtual Console games, though. Anyone got any recommendations? Anyone want to suggest against certain games?

Metroid Fusion (GBA) is really good. There's also LoZ: Oracle of Ages/Seasons and Link's Awakening (GB).

"Metroid Fusion (GBA) is really good."

"I was unaware that they had GBA games for VC. ...But I already have Metroid Fusion for the GBA."


Metroid Fusion only exists as a Game Boy Advance Virtual Console game if you were part of the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program. It, along with 9 other selected Game Boy Advance games, were given Virtual Console releases to these members, but only to these members. GBA VC on 3DS do not exist for anyone else besides those who are Ambassador Program members. There are, however, many GBA VC games on Wii U.

As for certain games, to start with, you cannit go wrong with Mario's Picross, Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, Wario Land 2, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge, Mario Golf, Donkey Kong Land 2, or Shantae.

We both are, but I find myself playing Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 and Wario Land 4 most of the time.

I had both of those on GBA and wasn't fond of either of them lol. Metroid Fusion is the only ambassador game I've really played.

I might get Oracle of Seasons, but I'm not sure about Ages. They're both good, but... The Mermaid Tail kind of ruins Ages for me. Before you get it, you swim with one button and attack with the other, and the swim function works well enough, but when you get it, the buttons are REVERSED, and the swim function goes down the drain. You then have to MASH the new swim button in order to move. I know it's only good for one, maybe two levels, but I thought it was a bad idea to completely change the swim mechanics with that item.

Not as of yet, but based on the Virtual Console history, they'll probably be, at the most, $6.99. Not counting the digital Wii games on the Wii U, the most expensive Virtual Console game is Sin & Punishment: Successor of the Earth for the Nintendo 64, which is 1,200 Wii Points on the Wii Shop Channel or $11.99 on the Wii U Nintendo eShop. I'd expect the official price point to be revealed by early February at the latest.

I haven't seen a VR game go past $5.99 yet. Hopefully it's only that much, but I'll settle for seven bucks if it's the case.

"Amazon has them for $9.99 each."

Amazon has had that price listed since before Christmas. They almost certainly won't cost that much. If they are that much, it's a very stupid and bad idea on The Pokémon Company's part, and only the most die-hard Pokémon fans who absolutely need these games on their Nintendo 3DS systems will be buying them.

Personally, I'm expecting them to be 5.99$ each. Like I said, no game's currently gone past that price so far, and they're pretty popular games. I wouldn't mind if they were a dollar less though.

$10 isn't a bad price for the games, to be honest. Though it would look bad on TPC if they priced it at that point, since everything else on the service is at the $6 price point.

So far, I have four games.

MegaMan 2 (Gameboy)
-Not quite as good as the NES version, but if you're looking to save a few dollars, this game is still decent in it's own right. I also like doing Fatal Run playthroughs (beat the game on one life).

Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
-I plan on getting Oracle of Ages too, but I'm not sure. I think I have enough for it AND what I'm expecting Pokemon Red to be worth, but I'm waiting till I beat Seasons.

Kirby's Dreamland 2
-I was going to get Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land, but I've played that quite a lot while I haven't played this one as much. Plus, I got this sudden urge to play a Kirby game when I highlighted it. I am kind of disappointed there's no Gameboy Color mode for this game.

Game & Watch Gallery 3
-Several simplistic games that I actually found surprisingly addicting. ...I lost a lot of progress earlier though after loading an old savestate.
