Virtual Console

  • Aero the Acrobat 2: 1 Player, Published by Sunsoft, Platerformer, 800 Wii Points, Rated E

Aero returns to the Virtual Console in Aero the Acrobat 2, a platform game for the SNES. Fun fact: Aero the Acrobat 2 was dedicated to race driver Ayrton Senna, who sadly perished during a Grand Prix race.


  • Triple Throwing Sports: 1-2 Players, Published by The Code Monkeys, Sports, 500 Wii Points, Rated E

Shot put, javelin throw, and hammer throw. WiiWare is taking the sport of throwing and turning it into a downloadable game. How cool would it be if you could play as the Hammer Bros. for the hammer throw? Sadly, you cannot.

  • The Very Hungry Catterpillar’s ABCs: 1 Player, Published by Cybird, Education, 800 Wii Points, Rated EC

I’m a fan of Eric Carle’s art style. It’s colorful, it’s creative, and it has undeniable charm. If I had a kid, I’d probably download this Early Childhood-rated game. But I don’t, so I won’t.


  • Everyday Soccer: 1-2 Players, Published by Aksys Games, Sports, 500 DSi Points, Rated E

Here’s a downloadable soccer sim for all of you fanatics. If it’s anything like FIFA ’08 on the DS, then I’m sold.

  • GO Series 10 Second Run: 1 Player, Published by Gamebridge, Platformer, 200 DSi Points, Rated E

You’ve got 10 seconds to race through each of this game’s 50 levels, which increase in difficulty as you progress. Games like this make me wish I had a DSi. (Insert sad face here.)

  • Nintendo Countdown Calendar: 1 Player, Published by Nintendo, App, 200 DSi Points, No Rating

Now you can keep track of any awesome upcoming events right on your DSi with Nintendo Countdown Calendar. I would put a countdown for the next three days because that’s how long Link has to stop the moon from crashing into Termina.
