Feature: Ten SEGA Mega Drive / Genesis Games We Want on the Wii U Virtual Console

Nintendo Life: Earlier this week we were rather pleased the share the news, based on a couple of sources, that Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse looks set to come to Wii U. It's unclear whether it'll be a straight-up re-release (on the Virtual Console) or a remastered port, but whatever the case it's a SEGA Mega Drive / Genesis game that'll be very welcome on Nintendo's system. (Wii U)

thunder force IV has to be one of the best shooters ever created, even to this date... showing that the Sega Genesis could truly compete with the NEO GEO in terms of shooters.

Haha ya gotta be kidding me, don't get me wrong i've got a soft spot for Thunder Force 3 and 4 but they ain't got nothing on Aero Fighters or Blazing Star on Neo-Geo.

Bloodlines is my favorite 16bit castlevania, it really made good use of the genesis graphics and sound capabilities (limitations)
Inception  +   495d ago
And one of the best castlevania too, imo. Even though there's no Belmont and took place around the world such as Athens, Italy (Pisa Tower), or Germany. Also, the music are composed by Michiru Yamane, the best composer for castlevania series (i loved her score in symphony of the night).

is this what it comes down to? my how the mighty have fallen; pure sarcasticness about the mighty part btw LOL. wii u relegated to playing ports and hd remakes from 16 bit consoles. now you might be thinking, "bu bu but ps-tree has remakes 2". yeah, as appetizers, not the main dish LOL.

if you do not enjoy the classics you are missing out. ps or ms would kill to have the vc.
Xer0_SiN  +   494d ago
believe me, i like me some classics. i grew up in the 8 bit, 16 bit days. classics like some of the good games that are even shown in this article, but if i wanted to play classics, i would just dust off my snes or other nostalgic artifact and pop in the selected game. people buy a new machine because they want to be wowed with new and exciting games...not to play virtual console. thats supposed to be the icing on the cake, not the cake itself.

I just wish Sega would start making consoles again.
