No Kid Icarus today, but Mario will do...

I was hoping today was going to be the day Nintendo would finally release Kid Icarus on the Virtual Console. Of course I was wrong. They didn't release Chew Man Fu either, darnit. But, Super Mario World is nothing to sneeze at, and it was one game I definitely was looking forward to, so as soon as the clock strikes 11 a.m. here (that's when VC games are available in the Midwest), I'm going to download for myself a copy of SMW!

I know a lot of people are griping about Nintendo's VC releases so far, but I think they're doing a pretty good job (with the exception of a few lean weeks). There's usually one great game released every week, and that's what I'm looking for.

Oh, the two other releases today are Vigilante (a beat'em up originally released on the TG-16) and Gain Ground (a strategy-esque game released for the Genesis). I've never heard anything good about Vigilante (hell, it was a launch release here in the U.S.--and that means something) and Gain Ground just doesn't look interesting to me. So I'll stick with SMW this week.
