    Just an FYI.

    Through the ESRB, it appears that the original Lufia & the Fortress of Doom (SNES) and Parasite Eve (PSOne?) will be releasing soon on the Virtual Console.

    Two great RPG's! Keep an eye out for them! And yes, you can bet I'll be Lufia'ing it up hardcore.

    Its a Square Enix game and unless there is some contract that states Parasite Eve is exclusive to PS makret Square Enix can put it on any system they want. Now to get me some more WiiPoints....


    *begins hoping for Chrono Cross to come out on Wii*

    Yeah PS3 got Parasite last night. Didn't know Wii was getting it too. I might have to give PE another run. Never beat it when it came out. "Never beat it when it came out" <---- That's what she said.

    You guys usually get things before us, lol. You had Vagrant Story like 6 months before us, and I had to steal the Motorstorm Apocalypse demo from your store. You sure it ain't hidin' in there somewhere?

    Hey Smang, tell your buddies to buy Street Fighter IV on the Ipod/phone/pad. It's super cheap right now and Capcom is giving all sales from now until the 22th to aid in Japan.

    I'll check my UK store when I get home, but you'll probably have access to it by then. I'd also like to pickup Lufia on Wii too. Since I'm new to the DS store world, do these games play on the DS as well? Lufia, I mean.

    Kick, do you know if games that you buy on Wii work on DS? I mean 16-bit games, obviously not the N64 games.

    I'm new to the DSware, but I thought that certain games were shared between both.

    I loved Parasite Eve but I absolutely hated running around dodging attacks waiting for my meter to recharge so I could do a real-time attack.

    I think they're separate purchase.

    They are. Virtual Console is designed specifically for the Wii and the older controller that you (can) purchase. DSiWare, or whatever they call it, is specifically for the Nintendo DSi/DSi XL. The games are formatted differently to work with the features of the DSi/DSi XL, mostly for sound purposes more than anything else.

    Could never get into DQ series after Dragon WARRIOR 4. I loved that NES game.

    As far as Parasite Eve, the first one came out this week and I've heard speculation that the second one will be out next week setting up the third one coming out the week after for the PSP.
