Virtual Console Release: Mega Man 6 for NES

August 9, 2009

This completes the Mega Man games for the NES.  Obviously, this was the last one that was released for the NES and probably is my least favorite of the bunch.  Regardless, it is here for you to enjoy, because I know that it certainly has its fans.  See for yourself:

As usual, custom images and a custom manual are included.

Virtual Console Release: Mega Man 5 for NES

August 7, 2009

Here’s another Mega Man game for the NES for Virtual Console.  Mega Man 5 is one of my favorite 8-bit Mega Man games, and is an underappreciated classic.  It didn’t get as much credit as it should have gotten for the time, because it was released just as the SNES was becoming popular.  See for yourself:

As usual, this includes custom images and a custom manual.  Enjoy!

Virtual Console Release: Mega Man 4 for NES

August 6, 2009

For some reason, Nintendo is being a bit slow on releasing the rest of the Mega Man series for the Virtual Console.  Here’s so you don’t have to wait.  Definitely not my favorite retro Mega Man game, but it still manages to hold its own at times.  See for yourself:

I’m aware that there’s already injections of this and its two sequels floating around on the net, but none of them have custom manuals and proper banners like my releases do!  Enjoy!

Virtual Console Release: Final Fantasy III for NES

August 3, 2009

Another good one for today.  Here’s a fully translated Final Fantasy III for the NES.  This game was never released in the United States or Europe, and we only got a 3D Nintendo DS remake.  This game uses a very good fan translation.  As usual, this comes with custom images and a custom manual to make it a proper release.  As expected, this is a very slick NES RPG.  See for yourself.  Note that this video uses the untranslated Japanese version of the game.

I have noticed a glitch in this release and the Final Fantasy release.  If you resume play without resetting the game, the graphics get all corrupted.  I don’t think this interferes with savegames though, so when you resume the game, be sure to click the Home button and press Reset.  This also answers your question if you’re wondering why I didn’t release Final Fantasy II today — the graphics glitches in its injection make the game all but unplayable.

Virtual Console Release: Final Fantasy for NES

August 3, 2009

Here’s a great release for today.  As usual, this includes custom banner/savegame images as well as a custom manual.  Final Fantasy is a game that needs very little description.  It is virtually responsible for launching the mainstream RPG market as we know it today.  See for yourself:

Also, note that I have started using .RAR files instead of .ZIP files for my releases.  This is because .RAR files have a better compression ratio than .ZIP files.  If you’re on Windows, you’ll need something like WinRAR to open these files.  If you’re on Mac, I would recommend RAR Expander.
