I like the service because they offer some really good and addicting games. Some are absolute crap and some are utterly ridiculous but I like the service. I haven't gotten much besides Dr. Mario, Tetris, 2 strong bad games, Puzzle Loop and bomberman and also Mega Man 9. I hate the service because we won't get games like Marvel VS Capcom 2 on wii because the wii's processing powers. Still Nintendo keep making good games, CAN"T WAIT FOR PUNCH OUT WII!!

I think it's doing great so far, even though it still could be a lot better. Sure, the service ihas several highly questionable games (Sandy Beach and Family & Friends Party, I'm looking at you), and it'll certainly never reach the caliber of XBLA, it's gotten some great games during the past few months, such as World of Goo, Mega Man 9, and Bit. Trip Beat. I've only downloaded 5 games so far, but I loved most of them, and I'd download more if my stupid Wii could connect to the internet! >: (

And now that there's a storage solution, and several promising games coming down the pike (Swords & Soldiers, Super Meat Boy, Cave Story) the service can only get better.

The Wii can handle MvC2, as long as it's on a disc. I hate it when companies say..."Oh we can't fit that game on WiiWare....so we won't release it." Just release it on a disc!! That's what they did in the old days isn't it?

There would be a significant pricing gap between a disc and a download though...

Eh, it's really put in the hands of the people. On one side some developers mess up the service with crap games but the gamer already has high standards set and a good majority of them have one track minds.

When did games become so pretentious? Probably when Miyamoto got locked up for concepts.

lol...thanks Nintendo for releasing Family Pirate Party. There aren't enough of those types of games on WiiWare, we really needed another one. YES!

i don't see how selective reading works. could you explain it to me?

point 1: Capcom can't release MvC2 on WiiWare due do storage space. They've even said that they want to, but can't.
POINT 2: (PAY ATTENTION TO THIS!!!!!!) Capcom CANNOT release a disc based game with Marvel characters in it because they don't have the rights to. even getting fortunate enough to only have it downloadable on some console is only thanks to a loophole.
Point 3: Companies cannot attend to our every beck and call. I'm sorry, but they have stuff to DO.

I don't have a complaint with Wii Ware. I research every game before I purchase it, checking out multiple reviews so I at least have an idea of what I'm getting. To me, the service's value is that moment when I'm sitting on the sofa, bored with my current collection of games, and want something to interest me for a couple of hours without having to get up and spend an hour going back and forth to the store. For the price it takes to rent a movie, I get a decent game, and then I have it forever. I've downloaded World of Goo, Tetris Party, Wild West Guns, Dr. Mario Online Rx, Art Style Roto Hex, Block Breaker Deluxe, Fun Fun Minigolf and Magnetica Twist. All good games that I'll keep playing. To me, the ratio of good games to bad is no worse than it is for the $50 games I can buy at Best Buy or Target.

there isn't enough information about future games, it's like everything is a giant secret. I feel pretty informed, and yet I still get info by stumbling upon it, such as And Yet it Moves scheduled for wiiware

I haven't messed with the WiiWare stuff much, going to try and find some time (and money >_>) to nab some games this summer. Only game I have right now is Defend Your Castle, great time killer, lol.

I think it's pretty good considering the limitations. I too would like to see sales or promotional price reductions. Some games are priced so high I wouldn't consider taking a chance on them (Plattchen) or have different pricing in different territories for seemingly arbitrary reasons (why is Bit.Trip Beat 500 points in Japan, but 600 everywhere else? Not that I'm complaining, mind, since I bought the Japanese release!).

With regard to puzzle games, I remember reading that puzzle games are a foundational style of game for programmers since they tend to have more rigidly-defined rules and mechanics so it's a good way to cut your teeth on a new system if you're starting to program for it and would also have lower development costs. I enjoy a good arcade puzzler so no complaints here!

The biggest problem from a self control issue is the ease with which I can buy points and use them to buy games; made harder by the fact that I have two Wiis that have different shops with different content on them! It's too easy for me to blow my budget dropping JPY3000 once or twice a month on points which can buy me several WiiWare/VC games as opposed to spending the same amount on a single disc release.

Seriously there could be no more Wii disc releases of interest and I'd probably still spend the same amount on downloadable games!

I have a large amount of WiiWare games and I can say I have not been dissappointed with ANY of them bar Family Table Tennis. The service so far has been quite good and it looks like its going to get better. I think proportionally there aren't enough platform games and other non-puzzle games. However, like i said before, the wii hasn't got many puzzlers retail wise anyway unlike the DS so I'm not bothered too much....and there's the fact i'm a puzzle addict. Besides one of the games of the year on any console, World of Goo, is a puzzler isn't it?
