I think I might bite on Excitebike.... I am hesitant because I only have 7000 points... (I bought a massive amount of WiiWare/VC games... thanks Pepsi for all the points!)

My DSi has 6000 points still as well- and I have been pretty generous with the amount of content I buy..

I got Excitebike. I like it. The track editor seems a bit...good, but not so good at the same time. I don't think you can move pieces around, so if you want a shorter track, you can't move the Finish Line closer. You have to individually delete every small tile of track until the Finish Line is where you want it to be. Or at least from what I've seen, that's the issue I have with that.

Online is kinda fun. I never won any races (I call hacks) but it seemed good. I wish it was more than 4 players though. That way, they could get rid of those stupid bots getting in my way. I definitely don't think you can go wrong with Excitebike. Also, no local multiplayer from what I can tell. But considering each race is around 1-2 minutes a piece, I don't see how that's a problem.

I've downloaded Excitebike last night and played it for an hour. It's good stuff, I prefer the all D-pad control vs. the motion controls.

Whether it is worth the 1000 points or not...well I have 17,200 on my account after the Pepsi promotion so to me this stuff is all free! This is the first time I've turned my Wii on in 3-4 months so if I didn't have the points I don't know if I would have put $10 in to buy it.

WiiWare


Pokémon Rumble

Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Cartoon Violence
Price: 1,500 Wii Points
Description: Available exclusively for the WiiWare service, Pokémon Rumble is an action game in which you control Toy Pokémon (referred to as "Pokémon") and take on wave after wave of other Pokémon in a variety of stages. You can befriend some of the defeated Pokémon along the way, which lets you add them to your collection and grants you the ability to use them in battle. Switch between collected Pokémon at any time, taking advantage of the fact that the amount of damage you deal depends on the type of move used and the type of Pokémon hit. Be the last one standing to gain the right to compete in the Battle Royale and test your skills against many Pokémon at once. You can also team up with three people for some multiplayer action (additional Wii Remote controllers required), working together to take down tough Bosses and earning points that can be used toward recruiting or training Pokémon. You can even save your favorite Pokémon to your Wii Remote™ controller for exchanges with friends. Combining beautiful cel-shaded graphics and exciting game-play features, this is one rumble you won't want to miss. Note that a demo version of Pokémon Rumble is also available for zero Wii Points.


BIT.TRIP BEAT Demo

Publisher: Aksys Games
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 0 Wii Points
Description: BIT.TRIP BEAT brings retro action back as you use the Wii Remote controller's motion sensor to bounce beats in this rhythm game. Retro visuals, classic game play, four-player multiplayer and an 8-bit soundtrack will get you in the zone and rock your world. Pay attention, though: As with most classic games, the challenges are mighty. If you can stay cool as the difficulty increases, you'll discover the beginnings of the BIT.TRIP saga.


FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord Demo

Publisher: SQUARE ENIX
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Fantasy Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes
Price: 0 Wii Points
Description: Step into the royal shoes of the Darklord's daughter as she installs traps and monsters inside her tower to fight back the endless waves of invading adventurers in this world-conquest role-playing game. Filling your demonic tower with monsters and traps called Artifacts is your only hope to keep the adventurers from destroying the Dark Crystal on the top floor. Fly your tower across the land and conquer every stage on your way to dominating the entire world.


NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits Demo

Publisher: Over The Top Games
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Mild Fantasy Violence
Price: 0 Wii Points
Description: NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits is the awesome story of Nyx, an enigmatic winged girl who must descend from heaven in search of her missing friend, Icarus. Fly over the ruins of ancient Greece and avoid falling into blazing sands or perishing in the claws of cruel harpies and hydras. You'll need the help of Zeus and other benevolent gods from Olympus to summon their powers. They will let you cast rays, modify the scenery and control winds at will. Fly, aim and shoot using the Wii Remote controller. Play with a friend and maximize your abilities: While one player controls Nyx, the other will control the powers from the gods.


World of Goo Demo

Publisher: 2D BOY
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) – Comic Mischief
Price: 0 Wii Points
Description: World of Goo is an award-winning, physics-based puzzle/construction game made entirely by two guys. Use living, squirming, talking globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins and giant tongues. The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo are curious to explore, but they don't know that they are in a game, nor that they are extremely delicious.


Virtual Console


Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures™

Original platform: Super NES™
Publisher: LucasArts
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Mild Violence
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: Grab your trusty whip and slash your way through all three Indy classics in this no-thrills-barred adventure. If it happened in the movies, it happens here: the giant boulder from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart chase from Temple of Doom, the three trials from Last Crusade, Rene Belloq and Colonel Vogel – it's three times the action, all in one fully loaded game.


STREET FIGHTER II': CHAMPION EDITION

Original platform: TurboGrafx16
Publisher: Capcom
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: T (Teen) – Mild Blood, Violence
Price: 700 Wii Points
Description: This is the classic PCEngine (TurboGrafx16) version of the two-player fighting game that started it all. At the time, a large capacity HuCARD was used to allow faithful recreation of the dynamic arcade game and its features, including bonus stages and sound effects. In the game, players select one of 12 characters and face opponents in a no-holds-barred battle to decide the top fighter. Master a character's special moves and combos to defeat your rivals around the world. In "V.S. BATTLE" mode, there's a convenient handicap feature. Using this feature to adjust a character's performance, a novice player can be evenly matched against a seasoned player to enjoy an intense, head-to-head combat experience.

It's about time some demos were released. Of course they say 5 demos, but I only see 4 unless a Pokemon Rumble demo is also included.

Edit: Whoops. Looks like Ryukhan got his up before I finished editing mine.

My kids are excited about Pokemon Rumble, and I'm looking forward to playing it with them. The description is a little unclear, though - is this a fully multiplayer game, or is it a single-player game with a multiplayer boss-rush mode? I hope it's the former. They don't get video game time until Wednesday, so no playing it until then.

EDIT: also really glad to see demos, but I hope they add demos for all WiiWare titles, and not just a selection.

You're going to get oh-so-bored real soon, just like any other Pokemon spin-off. Save your Nintendo Points for something much better.

That's the Pokemon tax, I guess. They know Pokemon fans are going to download it whatever the price. Fortunately I've got a cash of points from the Pepsi Rockband contest. Otherwise I'd hesitate at that price point.

This looks more fun then most spinoffs, though. Did you try the demo, or are you just presuming, though I can understand that. :)

I am very interested in the demo for FINAL FANTASY CRYSTAL CHRONICLES: My Life as a Darklord and Pokemon Rumble. I have the other 3, haha. I heard that FINAL FANTASY® CRYSTAL CHRONICLES®: My Life as a Darklord was a tower defense game... that has me interested, to say the least.

Oh yeah, last night I finally downloaded Excite Bike World Rally because of the glowing reviews. It seems fun, but I suck in it. Is the rating system just S or B?

The game looks a lot like a real-time version of Pokemon Mystery Team.

Joystiq has an overly enthusiastic Japanese video of Pokemon Rumble up. It looks like it uses the same models that Pokemon Ranch did.

The game looks like it could be fun, but on the other hand...$15 could buy you a lot of gaming in the form of Virtual Console titles. If it was $10, I'd probably go for it with my remaining points, but I'm not sure if it's worth $15.

Then again, maybe I'm just spoiled from Steam. For a little more than half that $15, I got two and a half games in the Overlord pack this weekend.

Presuming, as usual. All you can do is move, attack 1, and attack 2. That's it.


You say that like it's a bad thing. That formula worked for Diablo 2 and plenty of NES and Game Boy games.

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

Hah, the TG16 version of Street Fighter II' remains a riot. The music is... familiar yet decidedly off but the graphics are very accurate. The mind boggles to consider how things might have turned out had the TG16 in the US gotten the first home port of a Super Nintendo game.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I'm working on downloading all the demos now. Only game I've played is World of Goo, and I got that on the PC through that name-your-own-price thing they did recently.

Everyone, make sure you download all the demos, even if you don't intend to play with them for months. Seems like they're only available through the holidays.

World of Goo is really good. But until I figure out how to beat that one level (Divided?), it's a pass.

That's the only demo I've tried so far. I'll try Final Fantasy later.

Got Pokemon Rumble and Excitebike World Rally.

Haven't been able to play WR yet, but Rumble is pretty fun. It's mindless fun, but it's fun nonetheless.
