Time to Party Like it’s 1988: Galaga For the NES Lands on the Wii U’s Virtual Console!

by Ray on

And don’t worry, I’ll be excited for you! Galaga is without argument one of the greatest games of all time and completely responsible for burdening yours truly with a lifelong fascination with top down shooters. If I remember correctly, this NES port was pretty good but my heart will always belong to the arcade original. One of the fondest memories I have growing up is squirreling away quarters from my Mom’s purse until it was time to hit the laundromat where they had a cabinet set up. So what if I went to school the entire following week dressed in dripping wet neon colored tank tops? That galaxy wasn’t gonna save itself people. Now for the small fee of 500 Wii points, you too can enjoy this classic both on your giant assed HD television or on the gamepad during those “private moments.” Several other noteworthy titles are also available today for both the Wii U and 3DS but guess what? I don’t care about any of them.
