This weeks VC updates are, I assume, pretty radical. I assume so because I haven’t actually played either of the games, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. Kirby 64 was one I always wanted to play but never got around to buying…I guess now is my chance. Psychosis…I’ve never heard of, but with a name like that it has to be good, right?

Super Mario Galaxy is out today, but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from releasing three new Virtual Console games. I would imagine today would be a bad day to release a VC game considering that, which is sad because Axelay was pretty awesome.
