A very uneventful week on the whole, heck the top 7 places haven’t even changed. TV Show King and Gyrostarr surprisingly hold firm. What is surprising is the rise of SPOGS Racing to 8th place, haven’t you been listening to a word we said? Having debuted at 15 and then made it to 11 last week, we were hoping this would start to fall but it seems it must be making some steady sales – somehow!

Major League Eating might follow a similar pattern, having started out at 16, this week it’s at 11. Could it land itself a place in the top 10 by next week? Pirates Key of Dreams debuted at a pretty abysmal 17th place, maybe this is due to the E3 blackout and people waiting for all the reviews to come out (yay WiiWare World for being first!) but for whatever reason it’s a slow start for this one!

Poor old Magnetica Twist falls from 8 to 13, could it be on its way out? I am surprised this hasn’t held its position a bit longer; it’s a pretty decent game! Now we have one final plea for our readers, if you haven’t yet downloaded Star Solder R, do it today!! OK it’s not the greatest WiiWare game, but it doesn’t deserve to be in last place. Next week it could be history, go on people buy it, let’s see Critter Round-Up fall into the abyss first!
