The inclusion of demos is AWESOME.....just playing, it's more like BOUT TIME, Nintendo!

Unfortunately none of the games with demos seemed too exciting. Did try NyxQuest, and while it does some unique things with the platformer genre, it just feels overly slow and barren. Maybe things liven up later on, but it's not my fault their demo didn't win me over.

What would really be worthy are some real Wii game demos, kind of like the other consoles have been doing since only forever. I guess we'll have to wait another 5 years, and just be grateful for this.

I hope that people who download demos actually end up buying one of the games. Otherwise, Nintendo may go back to no demos.

Oh it will help.

There are countless games I would have ignorantly passed if not for the amazing demos. I'd go even as far as to argue that demos are the reason I still proudly don the label, "gamer".

I guess I should really download the demos sometime today, even if I don't plan on playing them yet. Maybe it will show that we want more demos.

Hopefully the next step is VC demos. I still haven't been able to convince myself to pull the trigger on Gradius II, a demo could help (hint, hint).

For the US, the VC title next Monday will be Super Mario Kart (SNES). Nintendo also confirmed that Super Smash Bros. (N64) and Pilotwings (SNES) will be headed to the US VC before the end of the year.

Serious question now: I just downloaded all of the demos, and World of Goo is actually pretty fun, but I would prefer it on a portable system. Is there an equivalent game for download on DSi (or even better... a cart game for DS)?

Tons of stuff

NINTENDO DOWNLOAD: DOWNLOAD NEW BIT.TRIP KICKS, SPEEDING KARTS, MAGIC CASTLES AND MORE
Nov. 23, 2009
Among the latest downloadable games from Nintendo is BIT.TRIP VOID, a riveting new installment in the extraordinary retro-arcade series for the WiiWare™ service. You'll also find some remarkable kid-friendly fare on WiiWare this week, including the immersive Harvest Moon®: My Little Shop. Race-loving Mario™ fans will thrill to see the original Super Mario Kart™ make its Virtual Console™ debut alongside the imaginative A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia. The Nintendo DSiWare™ service welcomes Castle Of Magic - featuring some inventive uses for the Nintendo DSi™ system's built-in cameras - as well as five delightful additions to the Electroplankton™ series. No doubt, the variety and value found on the Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop are enough to keep holiday consumers energized through Black Friday and beyond.


WiiWare

BIT.TRIP VOID

Publisher: Aksys Games
Players: 1-4
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 600 Wii Points™
Description: The third installment in the retro-arcade BIT.TRIP saga is a synesthetic exploration of rhythm and music as they pertain to our everyday lives and moods. With a control scheme that's new to the series yet wholly familiar to gamers, players have complete freedom to move about the screen wherever they desire, interacting with the music in brand new ways. The classic game-play aesthetic remains as color - and the absence of color - are explored to the fullest. Trip out in four-player co-op and get lost in the beat with a friend. See if you can survive the onslaught of Beats and further your own BIT.TRIP.


Harvest Moon: My Little Shop

Publisher: Natsume, Inc.
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 1,200 Wii Points
Description: Welcome to Clover Town, where you've just taken over your grandparents' farm and shop. The town has fallen on hard times, though. People are leaving, businesses are struggling and the magic of the Harvest Sprites is gone. Can you turn Clover Town's fortunes around and restore its missing magic? Raise crops and animals, then use what you farm at your shop. Keep your customers happy by making wild fruit juices, towering ice cream cones and extravagantly decorated eggs in a series of fun and fast-paced activities that use the Wii Remote™ controller to its fullest potential. Chop vegetables in midair, shake your Wii Remote controller to match your cow's moves, roll eggs through tilting mazes and more. Use your hard-earned money to buy new crops and animals or expand and decorate your shop. Along the way, you'll meet and befriend lots of new and interesting characters, as well as several familiar faces from the Harvest Moon series.


Little Tournament Over Yonder

Publisher: Gevo Entertainment
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) - Mild Cartoon Violence

Launch real-time battles between units and fight hard, fast and smart. Build your team, hire new units with different powers, then groom them with battle experience to gain level. With strategic planning and real-time, fast-paced fighting, this game is for the complete warrior - one who works his mind and his muscles. Go for Single-Player Tournament glory or challenge your friend in a 2-Player Versus match.


Learning with the PooYoos: Episode 1

Publisher: Lexis Numérique
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: EC (Early Childhood)
Price: 500 Wii Points
Description: Welcome to the world of the PooYoos, the first fun, poetic brain trainer for children aged 3 to 6. With the PooYoos, a merry band of adorable baby animals, children will have fun while learning the developmental basics: numbers, letters, lateralization, shapes, colors and more. Children get to dance with their new friends and enjoy lovely interactive rewards. There are two levels of interactivity, so children can play according to their age and level. This game has been designed for use by children who have not yet grasped reading.


Virtual Console

Super Mario Kart

Original platform: Super NES™
Publisher: Nintendo
Players: 1-2
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 800 Wii Points
Description: Get in, sit down, buckle up and experience frantic kart racing in the game that started it all. Select one of eight characters from the Mario series - offering a variety of driving styles - and take on three championship cups in three different kart classes. Win enough and you'll unlock a fourth circuit: the ultra-tough Special Cup. Crossing the finish line in first place isn't an easy task, though, as each track has unique obstacles to conquer. Racers can obtain special power-ups that boost them to victory. For a different kind of challenge, take on a friend in multiplayer races or go head-to-head in a Battle Mode arena, where the object is to pop your opponent's balloons before you lose your own. With more than 15 tracks to master and nearly endless replay value, Super Mario Kart is classic gaming with some banana peels thrown in for good measure.


A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia

Original platform: NES™
Publisher: Majesco Entertainment
Players: 1
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Price: 500 Wii Points
Description: Blob has come from the distant planet Blobolonia in search of an Earth boy to help him save his world.

Discover Blob's amazing appetite for jellybeans and the different transformations that occur with each flavor. Use these shapes to overcome even the most outrageous obstacles. A Boy and His Blob is a fantastic journey filled with constant surprises and humorous characters.

Damn. This is a really nice treat for Thanksgiving week. I'm down for Bit.Trip and Super Mario Kart for sure. My sisters might be interested in Harvest Moon. I'll have to wait on reviews for that.

Plus with PS3 remote play you can basically PLay your PS3 games on your PSP Go anywhere you are basically making it a Portable PS3


But Metroid sucks. I consider it Gunpei Yokoi's worst creation, even beating the Virtual Boy.

Well, if you really weren't trolling (or for any lurkers curious)...

There was a big thread on it earlier. Earthbound will not be released for legal reasons.

Those legal reasons being "they used a fuckload of real music".

Interesting article. Explains a lot.

I'm intrigued by the Harvest Moon WiiWare, but it sounds like reviews are definitely needed on that one, especially with the $12 pricetag. It's probably too much to hope it's a full Harvest Moon game with a shop element.

No. However, Tiki Towers, which is kind of like it (kind of a a rip off of it) though different and also a good game, is available for the iPod Touch/iPhone if you have one of those, and it's good (it's also available on WiiWare). It's got monkeys. +1. I'll be stunned if Tiki Towers isn't ported to DSiWare at some point.

On a different note, I played the Bit.Trip.Beat demo and liked it, but am left unsure. It was hard, for one thing, and seems like it could be a frustrating game. Still, I might give the full version a shot. I definitely liked the tilt-control of the paddle. Why didn't they do that for Arkanoid?

I loved the game as a kid, but I'm not sure why anyone would really want to go back to the original other than nostalgia. The game was hard then, and still hard now. The Wii game generally improves upon the formula of the original.
