...Final Fantasy1 in Japan?

I remember the first time I played FF1, I had no clue what an RPG was...I started playing and at the time I thought it sucked...before long I wasn't able to stop, absorbed by the story, needing to level up, buying new stuff. I couldn't believe there was a little story tucked into this game, a really thin one, but it was there....

Oooooh, when it arrives here, I'll be sure to buy it again. I've owned all the other versions, but I just like the idea of having it on the VC, that and I can't help giving my monies away to SquareEnix as often as possible :)
Cool, you don't see Final Fantasy I love enough :D

Just a quick question for everyone out there... since the 4.0 update, has anyone been having problems with loading VC games or channels?

I ask because as of yesterday, it seems that I am unable to successfully load Genesis titles from EITHER system memory or the SD menu. Games go through the standard loading process, but the "black screen" freezes up and the Wii remotes lose their connection.

My thread with woe and misery details... http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=15607670

Swimming Mario & Luigi eh? first time i saw that while downloading a software, i had to take a shitty photo:lol
Ok, sorry

@DavidDayton: The only problem i had is that i put some channels on the SD and the channels with subscriptions asked me AGAIN if i wanted to get subscribed and receive news etc. [for example, the Mario Kart channel]
Did anyone get this aswell?

It very well could happen. The japanese release VC release was just one day prior to the original N64 release. I'm not holding my breath, but there is a good chance.

YESSSSSSSSSSS! A sequel to one of my favorite racers on the DS - that absolutely no one played. :lol

Wow. I got Asphalt 1 when I got my DS, and thought it was pretty enjoyable. I missed out on 2, and didn't even know that they released a third (apparently it was only for N-Gage mobiles). I'll look into this one if the download price is nice, it's a neat little budget racer with licensed cars.

Toys R Us shoulda waited until next week to do the games sale, that way I could have gotten a great deal on both Donkey Kong Jungle Beat Wii and Klonoa. I'm getting both anyway but a deal like that next week would have been very nice.

Just wait a while I'm sure they'll have a similar deal within a month. It seems they've been having a lot of buy 1 get 1 deals lately.

Do you guys honestly think that Majora's Mask will be released when it hits the 300th milestone? What happens if it doesn't? :lol

I hope something good is released tomorrow for the VC and DSiWare. Nothing has been great to me these past few weeks.

Seriously, Mighty Flip Champs or Moving Memo. Come on, Nintendo, you're killing us out here.

I should tell a friend of mine that picked up a DSi about Asphalt. I think he was a big fan of the series.

P.S. if Atari does put out Felix Meets Felicity... avoid.

NINTENDO DOWNLOAD: POKER, PLANES AND PLATFORM GAMES FUEL PLAYERS' AMBITION


April 27, 2009

The table is set for card-flipping fun with this week's release of Clubhouse Games™ Express: Card Classics on Nintendo DSiWare™, while the new Paper Airplane Chase™ packs portable challenges for fans of airborne action. WiiWare™ users will find Cocoto Platform Jumper, a wildly imaginative new platformer populated by mysterious creatures. Last but not least, Nobunaga's Ambition, a classic strategy game from the Super NES™ system era, finds its way to the Virtual Console™.

As an added bonus to help celebrate the recent launch of the new Nintendo DSi™ system, Club Nintendo members now will be able to earn coins for registering, linking and providing feedback about their Nintendo DSi systems. They also will be able to earn coins for providing feedback about Nintendo DSiWare titles, which will be automatically registered on their Club Nintendo account when they link their Nintendo DSi Shop to their Club Nintendo account.

Nintendo DSiWare

Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics (Nintendo, 1-8 players, Rated T for Teen - Simulated Gambling, 500 Nintendo DSi Points™): Clubhouse Games comes to Nintendo DSiWare with a collection of five fun card games in Clubhouse Games Express: Card Classics. Play familiar favorites like Blackjack and Five Card Draw, or test your ability in the fast-paced Last Card, Last Card Plus and President. DS Download Play allows players to host as many as seven friends.

Paper Airplane Chase™ (Nintendo, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 200 Nintendo DSi Points): In Paper Airplane Chase, glide your virtual paper plane through an increasingly tricky slalom course. Take it slow in Endless mode or zip through several Time Attack courses. The two-player Race mode allows friends to race each other using a single Nintendo DSi system.

WiiWare

Cocoto Platform Jumper (Neko Entertainment, 1-4 players, Rated E for Everyone - Mild Cartoon Violence, 700 Wii Points™): A long time ago in a faraway land, strange little creatures lived in the depths of Abyss. Cocoto, his little devil friends and the mysterious Fairy protect the secret of the magma — the source of their power — in a magic cauldron. Meanwhile, Zaron, the god of lightning who lusts after this force, is up to something. He can count on the rulers of the other kingdoms that Cocoto must cross. The tragic kidnapping of Shiny, Baggy and Neuro has left Cocoto alone to watch over the cauldron. Refusing to leave his friends, he will set out to find them with Fairy.

Virtual Console

Nobunaga's Ambition (Super NES, 1-8 players, Rated E for Everyone - Violent References, 800 Wii Points): Nobunaga's Ambition is a game set in Japan's Warring States period, a turbulent age when feudal warlords battled for control of the country. As the ruler of a fief, the player chooses his or her own path to conquest: Will you wage war on your neighbors or rely on diplomacy? Use economic sanctions or send ninja assassins? Use all of your ingenuity and resources to unite Japan under your banner.

Nintendo adds new titles to the Nintendo DSi Shop and the Wii™ Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time on Mondays. Users with broadband Internet access can redeem Wii Points or Nintendo DSi Points to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel. Nintendo DSi Points can be purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Nintendo Points Card™ can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one Nintendo Points Card must be redeemed in either the Nintendo DSi Shop or the Wii Shop Channel. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between the two systems.

Remember that both Wii and Nintendo DSi feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit Wii.com or NintendoDSi.com.

You know, Nintendo, I'd love to spend those free points you gave me when I bought my DSi. Just give me something to spend them on.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you are looking down on those games you might as well return the system because you aren't going to find something you like.

What? You're saying if you don't like the ten games they have on the store (half of them being dumbed down 'express' games), there's no hope for you? Okay.

I own the full version of Clubhouse Games for DS.

The other games on the service are a tech demo for the camera, two minigames from an old GBA game, bits and pieces of a non-game, and Dr. Mario.

But Clubhouse Games has been out since...what..2006?

I'm in the same boat, but I know there is something out there I want: Real Soccer 2009. NOE released it, but NOA is just sitting on it. Argh!

I've had a Japanese DSi for considerable time (since launch), I assure you that this is representative of almost all of it. It's not to say that they are bad games either, but I've long speculated that people have no idea what to expect for DSiWare.

We don't know why he keeps buying PAL, either.

It does get better though, PicoPict and HacoLife are far and above anything on the store at the current time.

Not really. Throwing more puzzle games at a service made up of puzzle games isn't going to spark interest outside of PicoPict's 8-bit nostalgia factor.

Then again, we haven't seen everything from the West. Mixed Messages while not perfect was something pretty fun out of left field.
