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?
On the other hand... they're not exactly two GOOD titles
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.
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
