Super special awesome!
super crazy awesome special!
That's pretty cool!
Oh awesome, another gaming system's games brought to VC!

But what exactly is this...like arcade machines yeah?

=D
This is HUGE news! I like where this is heading!
Hmmm. Maybe there could be I daresay...ARCADE RAIL SHOOTERS!?
EXCELLENT! ... but what great title have they NOT covered already?? I DO need another Ms.PACMAN...the sped up version! Or maybe the arcade version of ROBOCOP, Ninja Turtles and the huge X-men game that was pretty sweet.
Would Mario Kart arcade be possible. Even without it, this is unreal news. I would have said too good to be true but apparently it IS true.
i am liking the fancy shmancy menu in the arcade games
Wow, this came out of nowhere. Sounds good to me This may get some older gamers back into gaming.
Shweet!
Quite cool I guess.
YES!!!!
the classic arcade games that have come out betta be on there
im confused! how did u get that screen shot? the layout for the arcade games are the same as the virtual console games. and yet the screen shot is.... different. explain yourself!
I want Mario Kart Arcade
All that's left to complete the arcade experience is to find those big, grippable joysticks to play with.
