VC updates

QUOTE
The Q&A mentions that the updates would be provided free of charge, but that doesn't rule out other charged microtransactions. Likely the update feature exists to fix glitches; however, graphical improvements and online capabilities would be a nice touch. Who wouldn't want to play Mario Kart online?


i remember reading long ago about how some VC games were supposed to get graphical updates, this shines some more light onto that, and hopefully we get more, this would really make VC worth it, and hell i'd probably get games i already got if they go ahead with this icon_razz.gif

apparanelty this is in the Wii shop channel Q&A so i'm gonna go confrim this before i head ot bed

That would be a good system. If you want it unchanged, it comes that way, but you can potentially upgrade it.
If that happens, it will be awesomesauce.

There's two things I want them to do so badly

1. Streets of Rage on the VC

2. Streets of Rage Online Co-Op
That would be so awesome your Wii would probably melt.

/agreed

What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?

They would be smart to do it! It probably wouldn't take too much work, even to rebuild the game from scratch to include the online multi. Who wouldn't buy it, even for 1000 points ($10) !?!? With games like this, Mario Kart 64, and Bomberman 64, Nintendo is sitting on a goldmine.

Nintendo doesn't hold the license to it anymore though.

i read somewhere that they won't add Online play, that they want the games to be as original as possible.

I think the smartest thing would be to have the initial download completely unchanged, but then have the option to modernize it. For some games, this would include graphics. Others, it may involve online play. Who knows.

Well they'll have Mario Kart 64 and Bomberman 64 eventually. For Goldeneye, please read the whole thread before repeating a dead issue. Thank you.
