Editor's Pick: Paper Mario
If you have yet to play Paper Mario and loved Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars then you need to play it now. It has a quirky story which at times can be taken seriously, but with Princess Peach kidnapped... again, it seems as though the Mushroom Kingdom just takes it for granted now, which is hilarious. Also it shows off Bowser as not only a comical fool, but as a badass with an awesome plan. It is a game that is great for beginners to the turn-based RPG genre and it also has some memorable boss battles. Overall I suggest you pick this game up, not only because it's great, but also because I've beaten it about 14 times and I highly recommend it.

NEW TO THE 3DS VIRTUAL CONSOLE

Mario's Picross
Publisher: Nintendo
System: Game Boy
Genre: Puzzle
Cost: $3.99

Help Mario unlock the mystery of Picross. The secrets lie in the numeric codes at the top and on the left side of each window. Decipher these numbers and uncover a hidden picture in every mind-bending puzzle. It will take quick wits and a speedy pace to solve the clues before the clock runs out. Chisel away boxes strategically and reveal the hidden image in record time. Be careful - every mistake will cost you precious minutes. There are more than 250 brain-bending puzzles to solve. Different levels of difficulty provide mind-melting puzzle action for players of any skill level.

CLOSING NOTES
Well not much for an update. As for the coming soon stuff, it hasn't changed so just scroll back up. All I can say though is if you're a brony then I got your back.

EDITOR'S PICK: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
If you're a Zelda fan then you obviously have heard of this game. However not many Zelda fans have either played it or even finished it? Why? Because it is far different from many of the other Zelda games in the series, but it is certainly one that shouldn't be ignored. With so much to see, so much to do, and yet so little time, this game takes a lot of dedication, even more than your basic RPG game if you want to soak yourself up in everything this game has to offer with it. Characters and stories are all wonderful and dark at the same time that it's no strange reason that gamers who love this game can have philosophical debates no the stories of these characters as well as what Link is doing with the manipulation of the world he is put in. If you haven't picked this game I suggest you do, I know I haven't said much here, but that's because I want you to experience it by first-hand.

Then Master Higgins made his way to the island...and the adventure continues.

Well I recommended the game Neutopia so I might as well recommend the game that quite possibly inspired it. With so many secrets to find and dungeons to crawl through this game is the epitome of the adventure game. If you have ever played "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" or "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" then I highly suggest you play the one game that started it all. For only 500 Wii Points how could you pass it up?

But time works against you as the fires get gradually worse and you run out of breathable air. Different types of fire need to be extinguished using different methods, so you'll need to use your equipment to the best of your ability. Enlist the help of the fire engine and your fellow firefighters to extinguish all the flames you can see. Can you keep your cool and save everyone in a constantly changing environment?

Cost: $3.99

A long time ago, the Ghoul Realm barely escaped great peril. A large army of powerful beings called Destroyers came from a neighboring universe, overpowering the creatures of the Ghoul Realm. Just when everyone had given up hope, a great fire swept over the Realm, wiping out the Destroyers' army. Several hundred years have passed, and the Realm is threatened once again. As the gargoyle Firebrand, you are destined to become the Red Blaze - the same powerful force that fought back the Destroyers so long ago. Now, you must traverse the Ghoul Realm and build your powers and abilities as you prepare to take on the Destroyers' King Breager and ensure the protection of the Ghoul Realm.

CLOSING NOTES
Well I hope this update will suffice you. I know there hasn't been one for a while, because Nintendo did not update any old games. The coming soon stuff is still the same. The only exception is that Bionic Commando will be coming to the 3DS Virtual Console.

Here is a simple puzzle game. It was one that brought in the morality question of "why are we killing all these creatures?" It is still a very fun game to this day, although not graphically impressive it still gets the job done.

Golf
Publisher: Nintendo
System: Game Boy
Genre: Sports
Cost: $2.99

This new version of the 1990 Game Boy classic brings you 32 holes of realistic golf action with hazards that change every time you play. Each hole has tricky hazards, so strategy is a must. Read the wind direction, check the distance, select a club, adjust your swing and keep your eye on the ball. Then, drive it home. A scorecard will keep track of your points for each hole. From twisting fairways and hungry sandtraps to big water hazards and deceptive greens, Golf is packed with challenges.

Yeah, a "possibility" is there, but there's also still a "possibility" that Earthbound could get a release on the American Virtual Console.

Well I am currently debating whether I should abandon this thread and close up shop. It seems nobody really cares about the Virtual Console for both the Wii or 3DS much. The only two people who still seem to visit this thread are ZJ and Bahamut.

I'm thinking of stopping the updates, however if there are still others who enjoy seeing these updates then I will keep them going.

I look at your thread every few days to see if there's anything new,I just don't post. I am still interested in the virtual console,especially the 3ds one since it has so much potential.

I'll try posting more now

If you want to call it a day, that's up to you. However, without this thread I will not catch on the latest Virtual Console releases unless I checked every so often. Sure. gaming sites like Destructoid will announce what's coming on VC but it doesn't tell us when it's online for the customers to pick up.

Yeah, but you see it just seems like you and ZJ are the only ones who give a damn. I don't want to keep constantly updating something if it won't be beneficial to others, it makes it pointless then. I mean I thought a lot of people would've been excited for Final Fantasy III (Final Fantasy VI) and Chrono Trigger being released on the Virtual Console, but I got little to no response.

Editor's Pick: Vegas Stakes
Here is quite the interesting game. I know there are a lot of different casino and gambling video games out there, but this one is a bit different. It has the basic stuff such as Blackjack, Slot Machine, Roulette, and Craps, but the Poker part of this game is where it shines. The AI players have personalities to them, favorite hands, and can even bluff you and be bluffed out by you. It truly is a spectacle to see. Also since you are in the lovely city of Las Vegas (it's a casino game where'd you think you'd be?) you will cross different other characters who may want to help you out or want help and it is up to you on whether you can trust them or not. Some are quite friendly while others will pickpocket your cash and fast. If you got some spare change then pick up this little SNES title.

Side Pocket
Publisher: Nintendo

Chalk up and get ready for some cool pool action. Stroke a mean cue and you might just work your way to the big time in the Pocket Competition. Execute consecutive shots, sink by numerical order and perform amazing trick shots such as massés and jumps for a chance to earn additional points or shots. If you manage to sink a ball in a pocket marked with a star, you'll get a chance for bonuses. Test your billiard skills in two great modes: Pocket offers the traditional 16-ball game, and 9-Ball is a more contemporary version of the sport.

CLOSING NOTES
As far as the Coming Soon section goes it hasn't changed. Depending on what gets released depends on whether or not I'll update this thread again. I just seem to be losing the motivation to keep doing it.

Totaly understandable when it never happens anything real fun on the VC anymore... at least not for the Wii. The 3DS seems to get some good games now though.

Editor's Pick: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Although I love The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess the most. I must admit that if I were to judge the Zelda games on a critical level, Majora's Mask would be the best game out of all of them. Although Termina Field is quite small, there is quite a bit in it, besides it serves the only purpose it should serve and that is connecting the four other areas, which are huge, especially Ikana. If you haven't played this game or were skeptical about it then I suggest you check it out.

NEW TO THE 3DS VIRTUAL CONSOLE

Catrap
Publisher: Nintendo
System: Game Boy
Genre: Puzzle
Cost: $2.99

Mind-bending action awaits you in this classic puzzle game. Catboy and Catgirl have been trapped in an underground labyrinth that's crawling with monsters. In order to reverse the curse and return to their human form, they must solve all 100 puzzles set out before them. Push blocks, climb ladders and dig through loose ground to defeat the monsters and clear each stage. If you make a mistake, simply use the "rewind" function and try again. You can even take a break from the main game to create your own puzzles with the level editor. Whether maze-building or maze-solving, it's up to you to help Catboy and Catgirl escape the labyrinth and get out of the curse's reach.

Last one out get the lights.

Is the original Contra for the NES going to be on the Wii Virtual Console any time soon? I've been waiting forever for that game to come out.
