I need to choose between Megaman 9 or Retro City Rampage... Oh, do I need help...

I have nothing really to say about myself.

Horizon Riders i liked it. I played the demo and it had an update to use the nunchuk to move the character. I don´t think it is a bad game, try the demo (but it doesn´t has the updated control).

Unfortunately there is no Horizon Riders Demo out in EU.

About my new WiiWare games:

Fenimore Fillmore: The Westerner was ok, a 6/10 3D point&click adventure classic style, until the final battle! Then it ALWAYS crashes. No ending for me! I tried it 6 times, but this is one of the crashes where you have to unplug the Wii U, reload the game, and watch the unskippable 5 minute cutscene before the final fight every time. I tried hard, different approaches, but nothing worked. It's right before the ending!!!
Together with other gamebreaking glitches, a million horrible camera angles, a bad framerate, unpickable items, no voice overs, missing rooms and music (compared to the PC original), 100 blocks for save data, this goes from a slightly interesting game down to a broken mess.

Frogger Hyper Arcade Edition
1000pts is too much. This should be 500pts as it's still not perfect. (and Frogger Returns should be 100pts.) 20 challenges (some of them being extremely difficult) to unlock Castlevania-style is frustrating. 3 multiplayer modes for up to 4 players can be chaotic and fun though.

Fish Tank
Looks like a cheap flash game but is a neat fresh puzzler with BIT.TRIP BEAT controls, a few modes for up to 4 players, and plenty of achievements to unlock. Have played an hour or two. Worth a second look.

The Tales of Bearsworth Manor: Chaotic Conflicts
I got the other game as well (Puzzling Pages). Takes some time to get used to the fling mechanics but is kinda rewarding when you get it! Stages seem to get more interesting (and difficult) with each chapter. To complete it you need 20€ of DLC (14 bucks for new units and 6 for new chapters). Puzzling Pages has 21€ of DLC. That's 61€ for the whole package which seems like a ripoff. Same strategy that SQUARE ENIX applied to My Life as a Darklord: Give players the option to make the game easier (cheating for money). Stuff like that should be ingame rewards, not paid DLC. I didn't want to support these cheap tactics anymore, but when I found a 40% off deal on points cards and got some recommendations, I gave those bears a chance.

The Fenimore glitch only happened in your Wii U or it is present in Wii too? If so maybe there are other games that presents changes when are transfered. Only supposing.

I downloaded Fillmore after the Wii U transfer and offTVupdate directly to Wii U, so I never got to try it on my old Wii.
I'm quite sure it has nothing to do with the Wii U.

For me, the game is just broken at the moment.
The WiiWare version seemingly never went through quality check.

I'll have to redo that final section of the game with my Wii U set in a different language before my final verdict.
I experienced that some games freeze at certain sections only when played in a certain language.


Nice idea, tell us if that worked. I didn´t know the language could affect the game to do it glitchy.

Yoho, it's still alive. ^^

Playing La-Mulana at the moment.


So how's Cave story? does it live up to the hype?

It's worth it for the soundtrack alone. It has a great soundtest, 2 versions of each music track.
I always come back to it.

But since you ask, it is overhyped yes. It's a great game for sure, but I expected more than a 12 hour quest. (It's replayable for different endings though)
Now that you know it's not a very long or epic action adventure, guess you're ready for it.

It's a great game but just for the soundtrack alone you'll do better with the FREE PC version. The updated graphics and sound in the WiiWare version don't add up much (graphically is not very noticeable) and those 1200 NP are only worth if you really want to play it on your TV. La Mulana is indeed worth the price despite also being free for PC, everything is updated for real.



I have a feeling WiiWare titles are gonna start dissapearing from the Wii shop soon, so I think I am going to pick up any games I feel I may regret not buying one day. Can anyone tell me if Blaster Master Overdrive is worth the 10 bucks? From the gameplay videos it looks a little bland, but WiiWare is literally the only platform the game is available on, so I don't want to miss out on this game altogether if it's decent.



Yes, Blaster Master of Wiiware is great, if you like the NES or GBC versions you may like this too.

Another good wiiware games are all Rebirth Konami games and Hudson wiiware games.

I'm really enjoying Bobby Carrot Forever. It's a very charming puzzle game that reminds me of Adventures of Lolo. I will probably get all the DLC for it as well. The DLC has been unfairly called a ripoff, but I don't think it is. The main game has 6 worlds for the $8 price, and each $5 DLC pack gives you six more worlds. It all depends on how much you like the game, of course, but each DLC pack gives you just as much content as the original game for $3 less.

I got 100+ games downloaded. Mega Man 9 and 10 are must haves.




How is Doc Louis's Punch Out, I saw that it's one of the new Club Nintendo rewards, I thought it would go nice with the Punch Out (Wii) game I just got from the eshop?

Bah-Weep-Graaaaagnah Wheep Ni Ni Bong


I'd get it. There's no other version of this game.
From what I know it's a promotion game, not for buying in the Wii Shop.
If they take it down it's gone.

Was never released in Europe, so it's kinda rare for a digital release. Same for Grill-Off with Ultra Hand!


Recently got my wii set up in my room and was wondering about wiiware games which I never had a chance to get into since my internet sucked during the wii era. No idea where to start so here I am!

What are some great wiiware games? (I tend to like platforms and puzzle games)
