    I'm off to get 2,000 Wii points in just a bit here, I'm actually getting them free because of a promotional program a local convince store has where you earn points on every purchase that you can use to buy gift cards and such.

    This got me wondering what Virtual Console games everyone else was downloading/playing. I haven't downloaded any yet (I did buy the Wii internet browser). I am strongly considering Gate of Thunder, as I have never played it before and I love old school side scrolling shooters - plus it looks a lot like my favorite shooter of all time, Thunder Force III.

    I am also thinking about Zelda III, I remember having a good time with that as a teenager.

    Super Mario Brothers
    Zelda: A link to the past.

    Gate of Thunder will have to wait until next time...

    It's been on there for awhile now. I've got it. The first one sucks, I thought I was getting the second one.

    Toe Jam and Earl
    Toe Jam and Earl: Panic on Funkotron
    Kirby's Adventure
    Super Metroid

    Plus I have 3100 points on there for a rainy day. I'm hoping Excitebike 64 or Super Mario RPG show up sometime soon as I'd like to get those two. Paper Mario is calling my name from time to time as well, but I'm holding off on that one. If either of the Pilotwings games show up, I could also be tempted. I'm not getting any of the Zeldas or Marios that are on there (otherwise) as I own them all elsewhere. The only one I've boughten a second time on there is Super Metroid as my cartridge is a use version I rooked from a video store and the save feature on it is finicky.
