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.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
