My Little Baby Publisher: dtp young entertainment Players: 1 ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) Price: 600 Wii Points Description: Have you always dreamed of having a cute little baby to lovingly care for? Now is your chance. Your little bundle of joy smiles at you gleefully, and you have to do everything you can to make sure it develops and grows in a healthy manner. Changing, bathing and feeding are as much a part of your duties as shopping, preparing meals, rocking your baby to sleep, playtime, dressing and teaching it to crawl and walk. But above all, what your little angel needs is your love and attention. All this, plus an enormous selection of toys, clothes and other objects, will make your little one the happiest baby in the whole wide world.
BIT.TRIP CORE (demo version) Publisher: Aksys Games Players: 1-2 ESRB Rating: E (Everyone) Price: 0 Wii Points; full version available for 600 Wii Points Description: BIT.TRIP CORE continues the BIT.TRIP saga in this retro-arcade-style game. BIT.TRIP CORE is an exciting action/rhythm game that's best played while zoning out on the tunes and letting the visuals swallow you whole. The experience is inspired by games from the '80s, but with a modern twist. The game play is entirely new to the series, leaving the single-axis controls of BIT.TRIP BEAT behind in favor of the ability to control two axes. If the difficulty gets you down, grab a friend and play cooperatively in two-player multiplayer mode. (Additional controllers are required for multiplayer features and are sold separately.)
Note: Some demo versions do not support all game features, and players cannot save their in-game progress in demo versions.

I have bad memories of Megaman X. I swapped a guy in school for a lend of my copy of Donkey Kong Country, the day I was due to give Megaman X it was stolen from my backpack and I had to relinquish my copy of Donkey Kong Country as a result. I found out later that he stole his game out of my bag knowing full well he would keep both games. What a fucking douche.
Mega Man X is fantastic. If you haven’t picked the game up in any of its prior re-releases, I heartily recommend getting it now. Plus, just the fact I can play this with Classic Controller Pro is awesome.
Capcom/Nintendo lost my sale by releasing this so late. Actually, they lost it by never making it clear that it would ever come. If they had said Mega Man X is coming to VC in Spring 2011, I would have held out.
If it was more fun maybe. But I was /somewhat disappointed after all the Zero hype. Also it's not like Capcom is struggling to make ends meet. And finally I might consider it if I was sure I could move it over to Wii 2 but I'm not and Wii is on it's way out it seems.
