@alex The Club Nintendo website rewards page currently states,"Dozens of downloadable games and a limited quantity of exclusive reward items will be added to the rewards catalog in February."

Just a quick public service announcement so people don't spend their hard-earned coins on doggy postcards.

Understandable. You don't want to get an entire continent of criminals all riled up.

Sometimes I wonder if every decision the Australian government has made since the release of Mad Max is their plan to avoid / bring about that version of the apocalypse.

I'm also confused on these Wii games coming to the Wii-U. Have the been up-converted to play on the Wii-U with the gamepad or pro controller? Or will it go to the Wii menu and you'll be forced to play it with the Wiimote and back down at 480p?

I totally want to buy this and have it on my Wii-U menu and play it on a pro controller. But I'm out if I have to go back to the Wii interface.

It looks like the Pro Controller will never work with these Wii digital releases as it will boot your system in Wii Mode. Bummer. Also, 480p max resolution.

Games that support the Classic controller also support the Pro controller.

The only game on the list of planned releases that does support the Classic controller is Sin and Punishment: Star Successor.

That and Punch Out! if I am not mistaken.

So if these games don't even run in 1080p native then what is the point? If I can get a Wii emulator on my PC that spits out higher rez versions of these games then why would I ever get these lower rez ones? Also this leaves them open to double(triple?) dip on an HD rerelease down the line which seems worse.

The only advantage I have heard about these releases is that you are emulating the Wii games in the normal Wii U OS. That means you have access to your friends list and can use the web browser. Again, these aren't reasons why you would want this version over Dolphin or actually putting a Super Mario Galaxy 2 disc into the Wii U and playing in Wii Mode uprezed.

Can anyone who is going to or has bought Mario Galaxy 2 on Wii U tell me, does it run in the wii channel at 480p in that blurry crud or have they made it so they run in 1080p without the wii channel, or at the very least without the wii channel.

The Nintendo eShop page lists 480p which really makes this offer suck if true. I suppose Dolphin is the only way to play this game anymore.

I think GiantButt.com would be a true game changer for all audiences.

I am anxiously awaiting sub-tier iOS and Android dev studios to slightly alter the sprites and release these as nostalgic "Indie-like" mobile titles.

I feel like SEGA or another developer could take some of the Yakuza systems and finally make a true Streets of Rage sequel where you are part of the "police" or "renegade street justice force" trying to take down Mr. X and his goons. Add in plenty of ham-fisted dialogue and optional dating side quests and you have the best tribute to Streets of Fire.
