Hello, all you friendly peoples! What do you mean it’s been three weeks since the last update?! YOU’RE CRAZY!!

So, from this day forward, I have decided to make Monday a special day. After all, Monday is the day that new downloads are available for WiiWare, Virtual Console, and DSiWare. It’s Mondownloaday! So, what do we have this week?…


Super Star Wars (SNES) – 800 Wii Points

Risk your life as a Jedi Knight. Join Luke, Han and Chewbacca in their fierce war against the Evil Empire. Battle treacherous aliens. Pilot two vehicles in high-speed, first-person 3-D sequences. Rip through the desert in Luke’s landspeeder. Clash with aliens in the Mos Eisley Cantina. Blast menacing boss monsters and Imperial stormtroopers. Attack TIE fighters in the trenches of the Death Star. Fight your way through the wastelands of Tatooine to the hostile streets of Mos Eisley and beyond. Grab your blaster, strap on your lightsaber and take on the fight for galactic freedom.


NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits1,000 Wii Points

Experience 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 will 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 as you wish. By making your own wrist movements and pointing to the game screen, you will be able to achieve these and many other feats. Fly, aim and shoot using your Wii Remote controller. Play with a friend and maximize your abilities: While one controls Nyx, the other will control the powers from the gods.

Rock n’ Roll Climber800 Wii Points

Prepare to “rock out” like never before in Rock N’ Roll Climber. Climb rocks using the innovative control scheme, which has you controlling your character’s movement using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers. If you want an even more immersive experience, optional support for the Wii Balance Board is also available. Make your way up an array of courses, ranging from the Pop level’s indoor rock wall to the Heavy Metal level’s waterfalls (watch out for those moss-covered rocks – they’re slick). In addition to the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel upon reaching the top, you might just be rewarded with your own guitar.


Brain Age Express: Arts and Letters800 DSi Points

This edition of the popular Brain Age series offers players a mix of new and familiar exercises, all with an artistic focus. Test your spelling in Word Attack, enjoy literary classics in Reading Aloud and tune your musical skills in Piano Player. A new Themes mode challenges you in drawing, photography and voice acting and lets you share your creativity with friends and family. And if you need a break, the always-enjoyable Virus Buster makes its return. Prepare for another round of training your brain in minutes a day.

So, there you have it. A buncha games that you probably won’t buy. Or, if you don’t have a Wii or DSi, games you definitely won’t buy. Unless you’re using someone else’s system… and they have a bunch of Nintendo points already loaded… and you buy these games for them… to surprise them… or spite them. Just whatever.

And by the way, the games are available at 10am Mountain Time every Monday, so get outside and play some games that are on the TV!


Currently Playing: Sonic Unleashed (Wii), The Legendary Starfy (NDS), Boom Blox Bash Party (Wii)
