I guess I should be thankful!
Nintendo’s widely quotable squad of anthropomorphic space pilots and their masterpiece rail-shooter Star Fox 64 is now available through the Wii Virtual Console at Club Nintendo for a measly 200 coins.
Those not aware of the impact of Star Fox 64 need to play it to find out. Being the first game to get rumble down correctly might have something to do with the rich legacy this title enjoys. Beyond being a simply brilliant game with nearly infinite replay value is the excellent collection of sound bits and quotes coming from the protagonists mouths.
Fans can attest that the dialogue in this game alone is worth full price on the Virtual Console, let alone a silly little 200 coins from Club Nintendo.
Also available through Aug. 4th are:
- Aura Aura Climber (DSiWare on 3DS) – 100 coins
- Donkey Kong (Game Boy Virtual Console on 3DS) – 100 coins
- Super Punch-Out!! (Wii Virtual Console) – 150 coins
Donkey Kong ’94 on the Game boy is another solid choice, but if there is only room for one game this month, there is little question as to what it should be.
