I wouldn't mind getting it, but it seemed like a better purchase to get the online version for the xbox 360.

I had a ton of connection problems at first. I switched to channel 11 a few weeks back and haven't had one problem. It connects every time.

I thought in this version of SF, you couldn't be the boses?

(patch dude is Sagat)

Nope, only the original 8, no bosses (Sagat is the other). If they release the Turbo edition (SNES), the Championship eddition (Genesis), or SSFII (SNES), then, they'll be playable.

I've only had problems connecting to the Wii store maybe twice. And on launch week. That's it. Every other time it's worked flawlessly.

If you are looking for a classic controller, you may want to check Target. I live in Middle Georgia and I went to two Targets today looking for component cables and both had about two dozen classic controllers. Figures since I was able to score the last classic controller from Wally World late last night... It may be YMMV though.

Looks like Gradius and Soldier Blade so far. Supposedly, Dungeon Explorer may also come but it's not there now.

Yep, that's the one!

I'm curious about the Dungeon Explorer one if it does come out today. I wonder if the kids, their cousins, and I would have the same type of fun that we do with Bomberman '93. I'm curious if it is easily accessible for a younger generation or not. Anyone have any input?

Picked up Bomberman over the weekend and played some 5-player action. We had a blast. Just as fun as it was 15 years ago.

Read this over at GoNintendo.com

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (January 8, 2007) - SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. today announced five titles from its SEGA Genesis™ library, Streets of Rage, Bio-Hazard Battle, Gain Ground, Comix Zone and Bonanza Bros. will soon be available on the Wii™ Shop Channel for download and play on the Wii’s Virtual Console. Prices start at 800 Wii Points for SEGA Genesis titles. Wii Points can be purchased online or at select retailers at an MSRP of $20 for 2,000 points.

“The Wii Shop Channel is a great avenue for gamers who want instant access to classic SEGA Genesis titles,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “Legendary titles such as Streets of Rage, Comic Zone and Bonanza Bros. are a perfect fit for this platform and will be ready for download later this month.”

Q1 2007 Line Up:

• Streets of Rage - This city was once a happy, peaceful, place…until one day, a powerful secret criminal organization took over. This vicious syndicate soon had control of the government and even the police force. The city has become a center of violence and crime where no one is safe. Amid this turmoil, a group of determined young police officers has sworn to clean up the city. Among them are Adam Hunter, Axel Stone, and Blaze Fielding. They decided to put their lives on the line and take back their city through their special hand-to-hand combat abilities. They are willing to risk anything, even their lives, on the Streets of Rage. (1991/© SEGA)

• Bio-Hazard Battle - An army of biogenetic mutants has gone haywire, terrorizing the world and putting the future of the planet in jeopardy. It’s up to you to take on the mutant menace and restore order and harmony to the planet Avaron, before it’s too late! Through eight levels of intense action, you’ll be up against some of the nastiest, most vile creatures you’ve ever seen, things like mega amoebas, nuclear crabs, electroworms, and gut-grabbing insects. You have four different Bioship fightercraft to choose from, each with unique handling capabilities and weapons systems. Your mission will take you through cavernous mineshafts, the ocean floor, and the Biowar Lab, each populated by heinous creatures that only man could have created. Hop into your fightercraft and save Avaron from certain doom. (1992/© SEGA)

• Gain Ground - It’s the 31st Century, and science and technology have progressed to the point that the human race is approaching perfection: no war, no poverty, and no conflict. With nothing to worry about, the human race seems destined to live forever in harmony; but what if Earth came under attack? By this point in time, people did not know how to cope with problems or conflicts, and had completely lost their survival instincts. In response to this, the United Earth Government created the Gain Ground system, a war simulator that would help humans rediscover their lost instincts. After several terrible malfunctions, the creators became prisoners in their own creation. Now it’s up to you and two courageous comrades to go into the Gain Ground system, rescue your fellow humans, and destroy the system. You’ll battle through different periods in history as you revive your survival instincts, while trying to stay alive! (1991/© SEGA)

• Comix Zone - Sketch Turner is an artist in New York City. One day while Sketch is drawing, there is a huge thunderstorm and a bolt of lightning hits Sketch’s image, bringing it to life. That image is Mortus, a megalomaniac mutant who wants to become real and rule the earth. Mortus magically transports Sketch into the pages of his comic book so that he can end his creator’s life and become real. Inside the comic book, Sketch meets General Alissa Cyan, who believes he is a superhero that came to save their post-apocalyptic world from the evil brought by Mortus’ hand. Now that he’s a comic book superhero, Sketch can fight like a one-man mercenary platoon! (1995/© SEGA)

• Bonanza Bros. - Mobo and Robo Bonanza are enjoying their favorite television show when the picture crackles and the shadowy figure of a mysterious stranger appears on screen. This figure asks them to collect certain items that he has placed inside various buildings to test his security force. If they return the items successfully, Mobo and Robo will be rewarded. The two of them agree to get the job done in just three minutes, however, they don’t know yet that each building is packed with security guards who will raise the alarm if they are caught red-handed and a huge reward will be given out if Mobo and Robo are apprehended. Fortunately both Mobo and Robo are equipped with bullets that can knock the guards unconscious for a few seconds. Help the infamous Bonanza Bros. infiltrate a number of different locations ranging from banks to mansions to casinos and don’t get caught! (1991/© SEGA)

Streets of Rage was one of my favorite Genesis games. That and Revenge of Shinobi had mindblowing soundtracks back in the day. I even bought one of those headphone jack converters to plug the audio into my stereo to really jam out.

I did this weeks ago, and just got the following email:

Hello Brent,

We just wanted to know that we acknowledge the delay in shipping here and we are doing everything we can to correct it. The Wii Point cards were a high demand item, and with the holiday season ran the supply out. We've talked to every distributor in the United States about availability, and what we've found is that none of them have any and they don't know until about a week before a shipment arrives to them how many they will receive. We're going to keep calling them for status updates every day.

We want to assure you that we will be sending out your Wii Points card as soon as we have this situation resolved.

Thank you,
~The LetsPlayWii.com Staff

I noticed today that Dungeon Explorer is in fact now available. I'm interested in it because it's apparently a 5-player dungeon-crawling action/rpg(?). Does anyone have any experience playing it the first time around on TG-16 to offer some opinions on whether it is A) Worth the points, and/or B) Not too difficult so as to be playable by children under the age of 10 and slightly younger?
