I would've thought that Nintendo Released these yesterday, since Good Friday (over here at least) is a Bank Holiday. So I though that they would've released them early; maybe not...
Then agaon though! Bubble Bobble Plus! yay! Plus Equilibrio looks pretty descent too.
Any sign of new DSiWare games tonight?

I think we get 3 because it's Long Friday (It's called "Long Friday" in Norway).

I really don't see Nintendo celebrating Good Friday with extra Wii Shop downloads. It's not a religious organization, and the holiday is generally a sombre one.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

We only get WiiWare games every other week, so obviously we get more than the US did earlier that week. Also, we only got a single WiiWare game 2 weeks ago, so it's three this time to make up for that.

I forgot about the update every other week thing. Still, it would be nice for NA to get more than one game per week.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

I'm hoping they're trying to do better because compared to Japan things look pretty bad. I've written Nintendo Customer service about this very issue because I just don't think it's right. I'm sure they need to do testing and whatnot before putting out VC/WiiWare releases, but something isn't right if Japan is getting 4-6 releases a week with a mix of the two and we're getting one or two releases of one of the two...

@Sean Aaron: I've written to them several times as well, and told them that not only are they being unfair on the customers, but also the people who make the games. They claim that they have nothing to do with any other release schedules though, and refuse to comment further than that. If everyone e-mails them though, we should hopefully get somewhere. I e-mailed them on Friday morning as well about the DSiWare schedule. I expect a "no comment" in about two weeks, so I'll be looking forward to that.

At least that's better than asking for an NoJ-published title to get released over here and getting told I should contact the 3rd party publisher direct!

We got three games this last Friday and I bought Equilibrio. It is the first time I buy game on wiiware channel and it's a good game. I played with my girl friend and my brother, it's fun. Maybe others games are good too, maybe I will buy them.

@TobyKaos: Try World of Goo, and keep checking reviews, because there's an awful lot of pap on WiiWare as well.
