Virtual Console bags six new games

Monday may be the beginning of a weeklong vacation for millions, but that isn't stopping Nintendo's Virtual Console update. For those landing a Wii next week, you'll be happy to know that your online selection of downloadable games will include the original Super Mario Bros., Super Castlevania IV, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Toe Jam & Earl and R-Type.

If online play were an option, Street Fighter would really clean up. As a Super NES port, however, it's probably best to cling to your precious memories rather than download it for 800 points. If it's truly the original game, there are only eight playable characters and the action's slow as hell. Give us Super Street Fighter II and we'll talk.
