Hi, I love this site, it has been very helpful in helping to decide which VC games to download. I have downloaded 4 games already and have had fun this weekend playing them. They are games I've never played before, but came recommended from this website.

Anyway, the "Nintendo Points" info in the reviews has been extremely helpful, and it might be a good idea to include the "Block" Size as well. It is a minor detail but I think it will help people plan what will fit on their Wii.

Regards,

Well I don`t see the need.
When you download anything of the Wii Shop Channel it shows how many blocks the game will take up. And this happens before you purchase the software.
From that stand point you can decide if want to purchase the game depending on the size limit.

And to mention the 4.0 update which allows you to access an SD card in your Wii for extra storage... if you didn`t already know :)

For me, it only lets me see how many blocks are needed if I have enough Nintendo Points to purchase. I've only bought the 8-bit and 16-bit games so far, so I have no idea how big the games "Super Mario 64", "Mario Kart 64" or "World Of Goo" are and etc.

How many games would fit on an SD card? I would hate to have several little SD cards laying around holding extra games.

Just like Chrono Said look at the content it tells how many blocks you have on your system & with 4.0 Update you can use up to a 32GB SD Memory Card (Could hold the Entire VC & WiiWare)

Either a 2GB or 4GB card would be more than enough for the average user, i bought a 2GB card from the internet for less than £3 ($5) and this gives you something like 30000 blocks, also if you consider that games on the download service are limited to 40MB a 2GB card is more than enough and quite cheap

This is good

I've got a 4GB and a 2GB card; neither are anywhere close to being filled even with dozens of titles on each system. Given the limit on 20 pages of 12 titles each and the download limit I think 8GB is the largest you could conceivably use at this time.

Well last time I checked, the block sizes were on the WiiWare games, so I couldn't see how this would hurt. And there's always the chance the person who started this thread can't afford massive SD cards as it is.

Feel free to add me to any of the listed consoles or services here :D just let me know who you are!

well n64 games usualy take around 250- 275 blocks, and those games r the biggest of all vc games, so a 2 or 4 gb card would be good!
