  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 11/30

    Once again, it’s time for your friends at DHGF to discuss the new Virtual Console releases for the week. This week is rather unique, as we’re getting not one, but two relatively rare games: The Combatribes for the SNES and the arcade version of Solomon’s Key!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 11/16

    And we’re back once again with the new releases for Nintendo’s download service. This week will excite fans of three different franchises, as we’re getting Street Fighter II’: Champion Edition for the TG-16, Indiana Jones Greatest Adventures for the SNES and for Wii Ware, Pokemon Rumble! Let’s hear what we have to say about these!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 11/9

    Welcome to another week of the VC Wrap-up here at DHGF. This week, we have an interesting mix of games: Wonder Boy III: The Dragon’s Trap from the Master System and Cybernoid from the Commodore 64. Let’s see what DHGF has to say about these!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 10/26

    Every so often, the VC comes out with something that breaks through the relative monotony of most weeks with something much anticipated. This week would just happen to be one of those weeks, as we’re getting Zombies Ate My Neighbors from the SNES, as well as the arcade version of Golden Axe, as a bit…

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 10/19

    Welcome to another week of the Virtual Console! This week, we’re getting Rygar on the VC Arcade. It’s an NES classic, but how is the arcade version?

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 10/5

    It must be a full moon or something, because Nintendo has actually released a pretty hotly anticipated title for the VC – Final Fantasy! But is it worth it? Let’s find out…

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 9/28

    Apologies for our absence last week, but not too many of us had too much experience with Last Ninja 2 from the C64 (aside from Mr. Lucard, who called it the best Commodore 64 title ever) but we’re back this week with another new release: Altered Beast, the arcade version.

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 9/14

    Nintendo was a bit delayed in announcing what VC game would be released today. Such a delay had people wondering just what surprises they had in store for this week. While this week’s game isn’t what our wildest dreams had in mind (*cough*EARTHBOUNDPLZTHX*cough*), it’s still an obscure little title, Crash ‘n the Boys: Street Challenge.…

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 9/7

    We all had a funny feeling what this week’s VC release would be. We have a trilogy to complete after all. So lets get right to it: Super Return of the Jedi!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 8/31

    With the last few weeks of good to great for releases, the VC has a lot to live up to this week. And it pretty much does, with Phantasy Star from the Sega Master System. Well, I’m not a fan, but let’s hear what everyone has to say about it!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 8/24

    A couple weeks ago, Super Star Wars surprised us all as the week’s new release for the Virtual Console. This week, its sequel, Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, graces the Wii’s download service. Is it as good a sequel as the movie is? Let’s find out!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 8/17

    After last week’s release of Super Star Wars, as difficult as it is FREAKIN’ AWESOME, expectations were high for this week’s release. This week’s release is The Revenge of Shinobi from the Genesis. Well, it’s certainly no Star Wars, but still awesome. Here’s what the rest of DHGF thinks!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 8/3

    Well, after a two week absence, with ridiculous rumors flying as to why, we’re back with a brand new classic game, this time from the VC Arcade! Let’s see if we remember how to do this after that break.

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 7/13

    Hang on…TWO games are being released this week?! I was beginning to think that just plain wasn’t allowed. We’re getting two import games (well, one and a half, I guess, technically…) this week: Secret Command from the Master System and Pulseman from the Genesis.

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 7/6

    See what happens when we get a few crappy VC releases in a row? I just forget all about it. Then they go and release something that actually isn’t that bad. This week’s release is California Games from the C64. Radical!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 6/29

    It’s time once again for our weekly dose of nostalgic goodness with the Virtual Console, as we get Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa from the Sega Master System, the sequel to Sega’s bright colored shooter. Here’s what we think about it!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 6/22

    Ever wondered what it would be like to create the world? Personally, my ambition ended at creating a city, but I’m lazy. If you have the drive to build a planet, SimEarth is the game for you! Let’s see what DHGF has to say about it.

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 6/15

    Well would you look at that, the VC Arcade is getting a little attention this week. I’d almost forgotten it, what with there having been nothing released on it since it was first added to the shop channel. The new game we’re getting is Space Harrier for 800 points. It also seems we have a…

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 6/8

    It’s time once again for all of us here at DHGF to gather ’round and discuss the new VC release. And that release is Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Gray Wolf from the SNES. Let’s see what your friends at DHGF have to say about this one!

  • Virtual Console Wrap-up – 6/1

    Hey, remember the Commodore 64? If your reply to that is, “That thing there are only 6 games for on the VC?” you would be right. It appears Nintendo has remembered the C64, as they’ve released a game for it for the first time in a month: Boulder Dash. I happen to like the NES…
