Forums - Gaming Discussion - Four new VC titles from Sega

Sword of Vermilion - When the evil wizard-king, Tsarkon, invaded Excalabria, King Erik V had no choice but to turn his infant son over to his most trusted warrior, Blade. As his castle burned, King Erik hurriedly gave Blade an ancient family heirloom, the Ring of Wisdom, and asked him to leave at once in the hopes that the young heir to the throne would survive. Blade raised Erik VI as his own, knowing one day the prince would fulfill the prophecy of the Malaga fortune tellers. Now, eighteen years later, Erik VI returns to Excalabria to avenge his father's death and reclaim the kingdom. Vectorman - In the year 2049, mankind is forced to abandon an over-polluted Earth to seek out other planets for colonization while the mechanized Orbots stay behind to clean up the mess. When the Orbot leader, WarHead, starts blowing a few circuits and a war among the mechanical brethren, a sludge barge pilot named Vectorman is the only one willing to step up and fight him. You'll morph into a speeding train, a power drill, a mechanical fish, or a mighty dune buggy in this warfare adventure. Equip yourself with weapons, pick up morphs and power-ups to defeat WarHead and restore peace on Earth. Sonic Spinball - With his Veg-O-Fortress built high up on an active volcano, Dr. Eggman is turning all the cute, furry creatures of Planet Mobius into robot slaves! Sonic and Tails rush to save the animals and quickly discover the only way to stop the mechanizing madness is to trigger a volcanic eruption. Sonic knows this can be done by removing the Chaos Emeralds that keep the volcano stable. However, Dr. Eggman is also aware of the fragile relationship that exists between the Emeralds and the mountain, and he's set up an elaborate Pinball Defense System to make sure the precious jewels don't go anywhere. Beyond Oasis - You are the young Prince Ali in a desperate fight to defeat the evil that is threatening your island empire, Oasis. Long ago, a war raged between a wicked sorcerer who used a silver "armlet" to unleash destruction on the island and a wizard who defied him with a gold armlet that could summon four powerful spirits. Both armlets had been lost until recently when someone unearthed the silver band and began using it for their evil gain. Just when you think all is lost, you discover the precious gold armlet and finally have the power to combat the wearer of the silver band...but can you stop them in time?

The only ones I remember out of those is Sonic Pinball.


i havent heard of any fo them maby cause im noob

haha i heard of all of them. i owned vectorman. It was really hard, but good. I also had Sonic Spinball. It was alright, but kind of annoying. The other two I never played, though. Beyond Oasis, I think, was supposed to be a huge game that used some extra feature on the Genesis. Not sure about all the details.

Sonic spinball to me was a very fun pinball game and only second to motley crew ball. I hope they release that one on the VC because that was one of the best old school pinball games ever made.

I hear Neo-Geo games are definitely coming to VC. Score another one for the classics.

I heard that was only for the Japanese Virtual Console, America and UK VC are probarly coming by later after it premieres in Japan.

My question about the VC is... if it sucked 20 years ago. Why re-package it, and sell it for 5$. They should start with their 10.0 games. then their 9+ then their 8+ then their 7+ then their crap. In that order. not. Crap. good... crap.. good... crap... good... :) Because if I never heard of it back then. I sure as hell aint paying 5$ for it now. Or even worse. I *DID* hear of it and it was HORRIBLE then... Why would it be good today?

$$$ It costs next to nothing to host these, and every single one that does sell, is just added revenue. Why NOT sell them

Took the words right outta my mouth... Why would it make any sense to start with their highest-rated games first? Once the 10, 9 and 8 games are released, why would anyone want to buy a 2-rated game? What Nintendo is doing is fine. Release some great classics with some major dog piles. Obfuscate the buyer! Then both great and crap games get sold. Bottom line? More money for Nintendo. You can bet that they are mighty happy campers if they are selling games today that I wouldn't have touched with a 10-foot pole 20 years ago. Furthermore, many people buy (crap) games simply for the nostalgia factor. And Kwaad, there are more people on earth than you. Just because you think a game sucks it doesn't mean other people think the same.
