Wow, I haven’t done one of these updates in a long time. But during the holiday season, Nintendo released some great games to their downloadable library. I recently purchased Blaster Master. While the game didn’t impress me, not like it did back in the 80’s, it did help to get me back into the routine. Nintendo likes to update their library on Mondays, so I decided to check out the latest updates. The DSi picked up some some casual games, like Solitaire, Billiards and Word Search. Meanwhile, the WiiWare library was updated with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. You might recognize the iconic fingerpointing. It has become a popular Internet Meme.
Nintendo likes to update their downloadable library every Monday at 12 PM Eastern. It’s been a while since I posted up about the latest releases from Nintendo. I admit it, I was bored. The releases were slim during the first quarter of this year. Today, I checked again to see if anything was different. I was surprised.
It’s that time of the week again. Every Monday, at 12 PM Eastern / 9 PM Pacific, Nintendo adds to the Wii Virtual Console library. Checking out the latest games on the Wii is a fun part to my Monday routine. This weeks games are King’s Knight (500 Wii Points) from the NES and Powerball (800 Wii Points) from the Sega Genesis.
Wow… one of my most favorite RPGs of all time has hit the Wii Virtual Console. Phantasy Star II (800 Wii Points) is now available. I own it for the Sega Genesis, the PC and Gameboy. Will I be purchasing it for the Wii as well? I don’t know, there’s something extra cozy about playing games on the Wii. Also this week, the classic NES game Ninja Gaiden III (500 Wii Points) hits the virtual console too.
Which would you rather do? Would you rather have a farm, get married and have children or would you rather blast your enemies to the sounds of heavy metal music? Farmer or fighter – that’s the choice created with this week’s releases for the Wii Virtual Console. Harvest Moon (800 Wii Points) is a simulation / RPG from the SNES, while Lords of Thunder (800 Wii Points) is a shooter from the TurboGrafx-16 CD-ROM.
