Two games hitting the Virtual Console this week:

Operation Wolf – NES – 1989 – 500 points
A group of desperate terrorists is keeping hostages in their jungle fortress. As a member of the elite tactical squad Operation Wolf, you must invade their hideout, destroy their operations, and get the hostages out alive!

Columns III: Revenge of Columns – Genesis – 1994 – 800 points
This single-player or multiplayer experience expands upon the game play of the original two Columns titles giving players some extra attacks to spring on opponents.

I absolutely loved playing Operation Wolf in the arcades. Unfortunately, the NES version was rather disappointing. I never finished Columns or Columns II, so I’m not sure if I can follow the storyline in Columns III. What are you picking up this week?
