The version in Animal Crossing was Tyson-less. I can't imagine Nintendo ever wanting to license Tyson again.

I wonder if the ESRB is why we get fewer games than Japan. All the VC games have to be rated by the ESRB before they can be made available.

Never thought of that. What NES titles could be rated T? Honestly.

Everyone keeps mentioning all these games in Animal Crossing. Is there a complete list of titles somewhere that are available in it? AC is NOT my type of game, are there some cheat codes just to unlock all the NES games w/o playing through the actual game? Might be worth it to pick up on the cheap if so.

You can probably pick the game up dirt cheap. However, an Action Replay type device is probably the only way to get all the NES games unlocked. I got most of mine the old fashioned way since I loved this game and played it almost daily for a solid year. I did cheat to get Zelda and SMB since they never gave an e-card or way to get them in the game.

The list of NES games (hopefully I'm not forgetting any):
1. Golf
2. Tennis
3. Pinball
4. Donkey Kong
5. DK Jr. Math
6. Clu Clu Land
7. Excitebike
8. Balloon Fight
9. Wario Woods
10. Baseball
11. Soccer
12. DK Jr.
13. Clu Clu Land D
14. Donkey Kong 3
15. Legend of Zelda
16. Super Mario Bros.
17. Ice Climber
18. Mario Bros
19. Punchout

That's $95 worth of NES games at the VC pricing.

thanks darkside. Can anyone confirm the Action replay device? I wonder if it will work on the Wii.

That could be the sticking point. Not sure that thing is going to work on the Wii. Not even sure where you could buy one. Do they still sell them at EB?

EB still has Action Replay kits for the Gamecube. They should work on the Wii for Gamecube games. No guarantees, though.

Another perk of the Animal Crossing game is that almost all of the NES games can be downloaded to a GBA/SP and taken to go. The only two that cannot are Punch-Out and Zelda.

I keep thinking that VC games (NES and possibly TG16 at the very least) that you buy for the Wii are going to be able to be shot to your DS for on-the-go play. It'll still carry the downside of being lost once its shut off.. but the screen resolution is higher than the GBA and it has auto sleep-mode when its closed.

This isn't what you asked but... The only games you need an Action Replay to get are:

Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros
Ice Climbers
Mario Bros

The rest can be obtained very quickly with just the Animal Crossing trading system and the trading code generator.

Right, Nintendo did not make them available through either regular gameplay or a Nook code. They did release e-reader cards for Ice Climbers and Mario Bros, but never released anything official to get Super Mario Bros and Zelda.

Gamespot got their Wii today (along with a number of other reviewers and bloggers), and they're doing a live webcast thing. Here's the link:

Right now they're playing Super Monkey Ball. Looks fun.

Yeah. Seems pretty sensitive though. And now one of the Wiimotes is acting up.

Speaking of drinking, I'm mad that I passed on getting Mario Party shot glasses.

It would be great if you could throw them on an sd and then use some sort of adapter to play them on the ds maybe in the gba slot.

The number of mini-games is insane.

In their defense, I think one or two of the remotes had low battery power. Or maybe some of the Gamestop editors are just "special".

Wii Sports baseball is up now. Looks like fun.

That'd be a great idea but would they be able to pass the DRM protection thingy over to your DS? Otherwise you could just buy a game and pass it on to several DSes. Hmm.. it's been confirmed they're supposed to being doing this for the PS1 download service between the PS3 and the PSP so I'm sure there's something going on there.
