Oddly enough, Nintendo decided not to announce their new games via advance press release this week.  So, through some searching and waiting, we’ve got the list below.  It’s not a bad week, but we’re still shocked they did not announce it ahead of time like usual.  Maybe someone is on vacation… WiiWare Spaceball: Revolution Price: 800 Points Publisher: Virtual Games […]

It seems like another “catch-up” day for the North American download service.  Today, we get the 2nd chapter in Monkey Island, which has already released on the PC.  We also get a rather interesting, yet poor attempt at a WiiWare party game with 3-2-1 Rattle Battle.  The original Phantasy Star heads to the Virtual Console, perhaps in anticipation of the […]
