[i]Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest[/i] (SNES, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): In the sequel to [i]Donkey Kong Country[/i], Diddy Kong gets the spotlight, along with his girlfriend, Dixie Kong- a little monkey with a dangerous ponytail. The action starts on the wreck of King K. Rool's Gangplank Galleon that has apparently broken up on a reef offshore from the Kremlings' Island. Diddy and his friends will have to work together to rescue Donkey Kong, exploring all the hidden areas of the Kremlings' island: a haunted forest, treacherous swamps, a giant beehive, and lava-filled caves, just to name a few.

[i]Streets of Rage 2[/i] (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points): To celebrate their defeat of the Syndicate exactly one year before, Blaze, Adam and Axel met for drinks. The next morning, Axel received a frantic phone call from Eddie "Skate" Hunter, Adam's younger brother, whom he was living with on the edge of the city. Blaze and Axel found Adam and Skate's house wrecked, and a picture showing Adam chained up at the feet of Mr. X. The city then once again returned to its nightmarish state as criminals ran rampant. Unable to contact their old friend in artillery, Axel and Blaze team up with Skate and Max Thunder to free the city and rescue Adam from the Syndicate. It is up to you to take down Mr. X once and for all in this classic brawler.

[i]Blazing Lazers[/i] (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 Wii Points): [i]Blazing Lazers[/i] is a vertical-scrolling shooter that was praised for surpassing the limitations of the hardware of its time. Players control the Gunhed Star Fighter to take on the Dark Squadron that has begun its invasion of Earth. Collect power-ups to increase your ship's battle strength so it can cut through enemies and defeat the bosses in all nine areas. As part of the "Soldier" series, the game fast-paced speed and the Field Thunder that can be used to destroy enemies in one fell swoop.
