Nintendo VC Releases for 2014.10.22

Sports games sure don't hold their values, eh?

Wii U VC

power_golf Power Golf (PC Engine): ¥617 (¥80 card-only, ¥500 complete on Suruga-ya) There is something incredibly depressing about golf games. Is it the barrenness of the land? The solitude? The fact that when I was looking at a stack of floppy disks of C64 games and excitedly found one with the title "Links" and booted it up hoping it would be some sort of multiple Link Legend of Zelda game and it ended up being golf that I started a lifelong distrust of the sport? The world may never know.

salamander_pce Salamander (PC Engine): ¥617 (¥1350 card-only, ¥1600 complete on Suruga-ya) And now for more versions of a game with enough versions already.

rm_zero Mega Man Zero (Gameboy Advance): ¥702 (¥570 cart-only, ¥1020 complete on Suruga-ya) With the Mega Man Zero collection available for DS, this is another one where I have to wonder why. Sure, not every Wii U owner has a 3DS or a DS... That would be some interesting numbers to see. I cannot imagine a single home with a Wii U that lacks a 3DS.

bases_loaded Bases Loaded (Famicom): ¥514 (¥80 cart-only, ¥150 complete on Suruga-ya) Hey, a sportsball game! I think we owned this one and most (if not all?) sports games being multiplayer means I am fairly sure this was one of the baseball games I played with my father and brother. The memories end there.

tower_of_babel Tower of Babel (Famicom): ¥514 (¥650 cart-only, ¥3500 complete on Suruga-ya) Guide Indiana Borgnine through 64 levels in this Namco arcade classic that for some reason in Google Image Search gave me a picture of Catherine, which, mmm. Now that was some fun block tower climbing action.
