I'll be downloading the Nintendo Channel just for stats. And might as well get some WiiWare games I've had on my list for months while I'm there.

I don't know what it is about pointless stats like this, but I'm drawn to them.
Now if only someone could make a really addictive game that teaches me a useful skillset, like a foreign language. Then the no longer countless hours I devote to entertainment could pay off.

Sweet, I love Street Challenge. It's basically River City Ransom meets Track & Field.

Need to download the Nintendo channel update. Though I'm scared as to what my game stats will be like.

I seriously doubt if this has anything to do with my connection (since I can stream HD stuff fine elsewhere and on my PS3), but has anyone else had buffer issues when playing the higher quality versions on the new Nintendo Channel? I assume it has something to do with the < 500mb internal memory and wanted to see if anyone else is having the same problem.

Yeah , the high quality videos for me stutter really bad , I had to set it to normal mode since high quality was unwatchable. Incidently the normal mode videos usually have to stop and buffer for me at least once per video that I watch , but at least they are watchable.

Looking at my Game Time Stats , my most playes Wii Game is Mario Kart at 45 hours and played around 100 times. Nothing else besides the internet channel or the Shop channel come anywhere close. Apparently I've played lots of games for little time , instead of fewer games for more time lol.

Oddly enough does anyone know about games showing up with time played that you've never played? It shows that I've played Pajama Sam for about 12 hours , yet I don't own nor have ever played the game. I have no idea what that data could be , or why it's there.

I'm really bad at Crash n' the Boys, but it's still pretty cool. It seems like you can upgrade your guys like RCR. It's fun to ram into a hurdle, jump into the air and slam it over the CPU's head. No texted sound effects, though :(

I spent my remaining 500 points on Ninja Gaiden 3, so I can have the complete trilogy.

If anyone wants info about Art Academy DSiWare...

http://www.nintendo....NrPpSc#overview

Art Academy is a portable art course that anyone can join to replace the lecture-like structure of art school, or the trial and error on canvas, with a Nintendo DSi system. Art Academy: First Semester will guide you through the basics of using pencil and paints, which draw like the real things. With your own paintbrush set and color palette, you will learn texturing and blending techniques, along with how to depict light and shade. There is also Free Paint mode where you can select photos from your Nintendo DSi Camera Album to draw from. In just a few lessons, you will be discovering your inner artist and creating your own masterpieces, with art skills that you can apply with real-life materials.

I think I'll buy it.

Downloaded Art Academy, and I'm really impressed. Provides basic principles to an all-ages audience. The first lesson is simple pencil work, and the instructor, Vince, will have you draw an apple. The tools are quite tactile, and I even got out a sketchpad to compare. My in-game artwork looks very much the same as my real-world drawings. And, quite awesomely, the pictures you draw in the game are saved to the DSi's internal memory. You can see them in your photo album and can thus get them off the DSi to share with others folks!

Because one terrible game isn't enough.

It shows that I've played Pajama Sam for about 12 hours , yet I don't own nor have ever played the game..

You should if you haven't already played it on any platform. :)

This week it's Kenji Eno's You, Me, and The Cubes, along with Family Tennis and Last Ninja 2. DSi gets another Clubhouse Games Express title and something related to MySims.

NINTENDO DOWNLOAD: TOPPLING CUBES, 3-D CHARACTERS AND CLASSIC NINJA KICKS LEAD A STELLAR LINEUP

Sept. 21, 2009

Beware of falling objects and soaring imaginations with this week's new downloadable game offerings from Nintendo. The WiiWare™ service welcomes the precarious puzzle action of You, Me, and the Cubes™ and the court-storming antics of Family Tennis. Commodore 64 favorite Last Ninja 2 arrives on the Virtual Console™, pushing players to heroic heights in a classic martial-arts adventure. Nintendo DSiWare™ users can let the chips fall where they may with Clubhouse Games™ Express: Strategy Pack or create imaginative pictures with MySims™ Camera. Another heads-up for Nintendo DSi fans: Consumers can still receive 1,000 bonus Nintendo DSi Points™ by purchasing a new Nintendo DSi™ game system and connecting to the Nintendo DSi Shop by 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Oct. 5, 2009. For full offer details, please visit DSiOffer.Nintendo.com.

WiiWare

You, Me, and the Cubes
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief
Price: 1,000 Wii Points™
Description: Experience a unique combination of strategy and skill as you maintain a level playing field in the physics-based action puzzler You, Me, and the Cubes. The action centers around Fallos, mysterious creatures that resemble humans and have an ability to balance on a playing field of 3-D cubes. First, create a pair of Fallos inside your Wii Remote™ controller by shaking it up and down. Next, determine suitable places for the Fallos to land, then fling them to the selected cube with a swinging motion. After that, the Fallos are on their own. If your placement is sound, the Fallos will remain stable and you'll clear the stage after tossing a required number onto the cubes. But if the weight or locations of Fallos causes the cubes to tilt and sway too much, the Fallos will lose their balance and fall off. Adding to the challenge, you'll find that some cubes have different properties, making tosses tricky and further threatening the stability of the Fallos. Guide Fallos through dozens of single-player stages or invite family and friends to join you in two-player cooperative mode.

Family Tennis
Publisher: Aksys Games
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Comic Mischief, Mild Suggestive Themes

Choose from three different modes: Elimination Match, Free Match and Thrilling Rally. Play against the CPU or compete with friends. Elimination Match mode pits you against the CPU to test your skills, while Free Match mode allows you to play against another player under conditions of your choosing. Thrilling Rally mode lets you join up to three other players and rally to see who can get to 100 points first.

Virtual Console

Last Ninja 2
Original platform: Commodore 64
Publisher: Commodore Gaming
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) - Mild Violence
Price: 500 Wii Points
Description: The ninja known as the Mystic Shadow Warriors were the elite fighting force of ninth-century feudal Japan. The evil Shogun Kunitoki was once beaten, but he has gathered all his mystic powers to create a modern-day tyranny in Manhattan. Face your archenemy Kunitoki in the urban jungle and conquer him with your ninja skills. Transported to 1988 Manhattan by an unknown force, the ninja leader Armakuni must find a way to defend himself against the unknown dangers that lie before him. Will this be the final battle? Can you vanquish the evil Kunitoki once and for all?

Nintendo DSiWare

Take on an opponent in the classic Backgammon, invade an enemy base in Field Tactics, sandwich your opponent's pieces to capture them in Turncoat, create strings of five in a row in Connect Five and guess where to attack your opponent's pieces in Grid Attack. Play by yourself or use DS Download Play to host as many as seven friends.

MySims Camera
