Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, wasn't the last SNES Street Fighter title. The last was Street Fighter ZERO 2. Now if Nintendo is going to release TurboGrafx-CD titles for the Virtual Console, then I'm hoping for the release of Fighting Street (a.k.a. the original Street Fighter, Street Fighter 1).
I would love to play that version... I've only played it on mame. The original Street Fighter facinates me... so I'd really like to play some of the ports.

Aye, that it was not. That's why I said the Street Fighter madness is almost over. ;D Then there's the potential for Fighting Street (as you mentioned), the Genny SF ports (and they better not go there), the "tacked-on-for-name-only-to-boost-sales" Street Fighter 2010 for the NES, and then it'll all be said and done. At least the latter game hasn't been ported all over the place.

New rating for Phantasy Star II (Gen, Sega, NA, EU)...good to see the Phantasy Star series pop up. As for Europe and Australia's new release, it's Adventures of Lolo 2 (NES, HAL)...and that's it. I'm not sure I like this current 1 game a week thing...

On the other hand... they're not exactly two GOOD titles
I wonder why there's been such a downturn lately... I haven't felt the desire to stock up on Wii Points for ages.
I've been wondering that myself. It's not exactly like they're running out of good games. The NES alone is still ripe for picking. Where's Castlevania III, Power Blade, Vice: Project Doom, Kickle Cubicle, Metal Storm, TMNT II & III, Contra, Little Samson, etc, etc? Is Nintendo trying to "lengthen the life" of the Virtual Console? Is that even a concern?

Valid point. Nester put up a solid list of NES titles, a good chunk of those I'm waiting for. Not to mention Crystalis, Gargoyle's Quest II, Little Nemo, Strider, Battle of Olympus (although I do doubt we're ever see that one...), and the list could go on and on. And w00t Power Blade. That is the one NES title I desparately want more than any other.

I hope to see a few more licensed games, like Little Nemo and The Lone Ranger, and of course, more TMNT games. Especially The Hyperstone Heist on the Genesis since I don't have that one. The question is whether or not the VC sales will pay for the licensing fees.
While I'm at it, how about Cool Spot on the SNES? On the surface, it seems like a cheap cash-in to advertise 7up, but it was actually a surprisingly fun platform game with good graphics (reminiscent of Earthworm Jim) and a catchy soundtrack (composed by Tommy Tallarico of Video Games Live fame).
7up hasn't used that ad campaign in about 15 years, so really, the game is no longer relevant, and we'll probably never see it on the VC.

Cool Spot was an awesome game. Wasn't there a gameboy version too? I think I remember playing that when I was younger, although I've never seen the SNES version.
According to MobyGames, Cool Spot was available for the SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, Master System, PC, and Aimga.
There was also a game simply called "Spot" that was in the vein of Go and Othello, but was generally pointless. It also seems there was a game called "Spot Goes to Hollywood," and from the looks of it, it used an isometric perspective.
Shrikeswind: Wait what am I celebrating about the excuse is that I had COVID for basically all of November. Wear your masks kids.

nocturnal YL: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Nester the Lark: I've got ideas for some posts I want to make. Now if only I could make time to actually write them...

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.
