I just filled out two survey's on Club Nintendo for Mega Man 3 and 4. When asked what I thought about the Virtual Console, oh boy did I mention the lack of actual new weekly titles, and the lack of N64 ones,

Does Japan ever miss weeks?

They have a few times, mostly when it falls on national holidays. Their major problem is lack of WiiWare which they get about as frequently as our VC.

With as much garbage as we've received on WiiWare, I wish we had the same problem that Japan did.

Eh, I think Wiiware rocks. Sure, it's very limited, and sure, there's a lot of chaff, but there are also very interesting games that I can't imagine getting made anywhere else.

Well, maybe this week is not so good, but there usually is at least one worthwhile release per week. That's enough to not be able to keep up.

Dude, I totally gotta check out that Blazybloo game, lol! If just for laughs.

I suppose you're right. It just seems like an awful lot of crap comes out each week, you know? Even with good games on top of those releases, sometimes it's tough to find them among the bad.

Fair enough, but that's why I try to post about the good ones I stumble upon. Hope you checked out Dive: The Medes Islands Secret!

Not yet, but it's on my list. I liked the demo for NyxQuest, but I haven't bought that one either.

WiiWare definitely has some gems, but they are definitely hard to find for those not in the know.

Yeah, BlazBlue DSi looks nutty. What a weird decision.

I'm also excited about Deer Captor, because of its name.
