Download Services: Proof That Old School Games Still Have Life...

So, a few weeks ago, Capcom released Mega Man 10 to even more critical acclaim. A week or so later, Konami bestowed upon us the original PC Engine (TurboGrafx 16) version of Castlevania: Rondo Of Blood. Now I like the New, Shiny games just as much as the next guy, but there's something about the feeling I get when I see something old school has been released on XBox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, WiiWare, or Virtual Console. My favorite game genre, shoot em ups has seen new life because of these download services, to the point where Cave, the developer known for legendary shooters like Do Don Pachi, has decided to publish their next few games without regional coding. For the uninformed, that means it will be playable on any XBox 360 console. So, if you see a quality throwback game on your favorite system's online service, give it a might be rewarded.
