Your Alternatives To Mega Man 9 Are…

By Spencer . September 22, 2008 . 8:49am

vman Mega Man 9 is out this week and the way Capcom is pushing it you probably already know this. If you aren’t swooning over a new 8-bit style game starring the Blue Bomber Nintendo has other games for you. Super Dodge Ball where Kunio-kun characters are replaced with “Team USA” and Vectorman, a pre-rendered 2D action game for the Sega Genesis, are your Virtual Console choices sold for 500 Wii Points ($5) and 800 Wii Points ($8) respectively. I would personally lean towards purchasing Vectorman if I didn’t already have it on the Sega Genesis Collection. PLÄTTCHEN twist ‘n’ paint gets the short end of the stick for being this week’s obscure game. Bplus’ game came out in Europe to less than favorable reviews when it was sold for 1,500 Wii Points ($15). Someone in management decided to reduce the price to 1,000 Wii Points ($10) in North America, which might make the self described “100 hours” of color/fruit/train shooting fun. (? PLÄTTCHEN twist ‘n’ paint sure looks confusing…)

    MM9, VM and SDB? Wow….definitly one of the best VC/WiiWare weeks ever.

    God. Vectorman on VC. i get closer to buying a Wii just for Virtual Console every day. ;_;

    If you want Vectorman just pick up the Sonic Gems Collection for Gamecube. You not only get Vectorman but also its excellent sequel and Sonic CD. A much better package overall. That being said Vectorman is an awesome game.

    Vectorman! I loved Vectorman, what a fun game. :)

    Yeah, great week… I have yet to try Vectorman, even though I heard good things about it.

    By the way, I hope that we eventually get the other Kunio-kun games from Japan as imports… The 2nd “soccer” one from Famicom is my favorite, and it doesn´t really require Japanese knowledge. The hockey game is also great…
