It's WiiWare week for Europe again, and this time there are once again two new games available. Although you might as well say it's just one, as one of them was already released in the US and was found to be rather shockingly bad.

The "new" game of the bunch is Pirates: The Key of Dreams, in which you can play as a pirate, sailing the seas, recruiting new men, battling other ships,..

USA WiiWare Update: SPOGS Racing

A bit of a surprise this week as SPOGS Racing is up for grabs on WiiWare. This actually looks like it could be quite good fun if you like racing games. It doesn’t take itself too seriously from what we can tell. Comparisons to Mario Kart have even been made, so it has a lot to live up to! How will it fare we wonder?

Our review will be up within the next couple of days, so if you are on the fence..

I'am interested in seeing what this looks like. Sounds like a whacky twisted metal/Burnout type game.

There is a screenshot of this in the latest Nintendo Power issue. It has been reported to look like an 'early GameCube game'. For the time being, I guess you'll just have to wait for the latest Official Nintendo Magazine and skim through it. Hopefully they'll have a few new tidbits of info and a/some screenshot(s) of SPOGS Racing. ;)

@ZEIDO - Hopefully, though no one knows at this time. I'm hoping for some Castlevania remakes of ones that cannot make it onto the Virtual Console since it doesn't support the certain console it is on. For instance, a 3D remake of Aria of Sorrow, possibly the most popular Castlevania game and one I've not been able to play, would be awesome. Some Japanese Fire Emblem remakes wouldn't hurt, either; though they can just be translated and released with their original graphics, which is probably the case, and a case I'm good with as well.

I'm more excited for some of the more original titles like LIT, LostWinds, My Life as a King, and SPOGS, more than remakes, however.

I'm actually pretty interested in this. Looks like a great original game for WiiWare.

I have NP and the graphics look okay when it comes to the models (though the screens are very small), but the textures look terrible. BUT, as a reviewer I cannot base a game on graphics only (and heck, it's a Wiiware game), but gameplay wise it sounds like it could be very good or be a complete failure.

I guess it'll come down to balancing and controls?

Maybe I will buy, but the only kind of racing games I actually like are Mario Kart and F-Zero. Would have to be very cheaper for me to buy it.

It seems original, yep, and the concept is pretty good but the execution is a little lacking. And the trailer isn't that great, either.

That being said, they may be able to pull things together a bit better before release but it doesn't have my eye entirely.

This is the WiiWare game I'm anticipating the most right now. But would make it even more awesome is if it had online. Not scoreboards, full-fledged, head-to-head online. That would be sweet!

That would certainly make it better, yep. The game doesn't look "awesome" at all in my books. The concept sounds great but as I said from what I've seen, it just doesn't win me over.

Looks very funny. I think I will get it when it comes out. Does anybody know in which regions this game will be released? It would be too sad if it will only come out in Japan or the USA. :(

Anybody know if this got like a Multiplayer mode, i.e. 4 player simultaneously? This could be a big winner with my friends if it brings some variety to our Mario Kart Class :)
So many games, so little time...

EDIT: Note to myself: dupe, just read it all! There it is, split-screen-multiplayer! I'm in! :D

Wow, this could very well be the best party racer on the Wii, considering the only other one worth mentioning is Mario Kart Wii, which I hate with a passion(curse you blue shells, curse yoooouuuuu!!!).

i'd be tempted to buy this game if it had online. i MIGHT still buy this game depending on what everyone thinks of it when it comes out.

it looks like it could be great actually. but it could also fail miserably. i am not sure what to think of this one. if it gets good reviews and comments, i will probably buy it. if not, then i won't buy it.

Not that I am itching to play this game or anything, but it is strange how it has made its way to the US/EU, but has not been released in AUS/NZ. :|
