Just those on Virtual Console, but I've already got Rondo via the PSP game. And I've got a Turbo EverDrive with a Duo. :) I probably should consider Lords of Thunder, though, as well. We'll see if I feel like dropping the cash. I wanted to make sure I had the Neutopia games legit, and also get my remaining points to zero.

So, in all seriousness, because I think no-one is taking me seriously: If you don't own the Art Style games you should buy them. They're probably the best games on the WiiWare service hat aren't available on other systems.

:lol:

I know...I know...I have some of the DSiWare art style games, and I have tried out a few of the ones for the Wii. They just aren’t my thing.

All right I've been dropping BIG MONEY DOLLAR BILLS in the Wii Shop and my wallet can't take any more.
Here's what I have downloaded so far:
WiiWare:
Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth

Virtual Console:
Air Zonk (TurboGrafx)
Alien Soldier (Genesis)
Blue's Journey (Neo-Geo)
Bonk's Adventure TurboGrafx)
Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (TurboGrafx)
DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure (SNES)
Ghoul Patrol (SNES)
Gley Lancer (Genesis)
Harvest Moon (SNES)
Ironclad (Neo-Geo)
J.J. & Jeff (TurboGrafx)
M.U.S.H.A. (Genesis)
Magical Drop II (Neo-Geo)
Ninja Master's (Neo-Geo)
Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom (NES)
Pulseman (Genesis)
Sin & Punishment (N64)
Super Adventure Island (SNES)
Super Adventure Island II (SNES)
Super Fantasy Zone (Genesis)
Ufouria: The Saga (NES)
Wild Guns (SNES)
Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)

I've just about filled my Wii's internal memory and am waiting for an SD card to arrive before I download more. I still have 15,200 Wii Points and that should be enough for me to get the remaining WiiWare and Neo Geo games I'm prioritizing; but a couple more SNES and TurboGrafx games would be nice too...

I got some similar stuff. Actually went through the Wii Shop, with eBay open by my side, looking at what carts I'd never be able to afford and then downloading the games instead.

I did some of the same about some games that I at least somewhat care about. Dropped more than I wanted to, but for 5000 (well, 4900, actually) points, I snagged the following:

DoReMi Fantasy - 900 pts
Lords of Thunder - 800 pts
Sin & Punishment - 1200 pts
Gradius ReBirth - 1000 pts
Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom - 500 pts
S.C.A.T. - 500 pts

In particular, I didn't realize that DoReMi Fantasy had gotten pretty expensive. Figure this is the best way to have it "legit", even if I do end up playing on the SD2SNES in the end. I'm passing on Wild Guns because I plan on snagging Reloaded at some point, and Alien Soldier because it's cheaper on Steam.

^ Yeah most of those I've downloaded at some point, as I can't afford (or am simply not passionate enough about the game to buy) the actual cart. Sin & Punishment is the one exception though, I'd like a physical copy someday.
