It's Wednesday again which can only mean one thing. It's time to take a look at the most popular WiiWare titles available in the Wii Shop. If you're feeling adventurous you can even take a look for yourself by simply logging on to your Wii Shop channel, heading into the WiiWare section and then viewing "Popular Games". It's that simple! Trust us, if we can do it, anyone can.
We compile this list using the USA region Wii Shop channel, so if you live elsewhere your list will probably be quite a bit different. Please feel free to post your region's findings below as always.

It looks like you can't keep a good Goo down as World of Goo has once again taken over the top spot on the charts in the US. Of course there's no need to feel too sorry for Tetris Party as it only slipped down to the #2 spot. And as you can see, fish aren't far behind Goo in WiiWare popularity as Hudson's My Aquarium is still holding strong at the #3 spot.
The only new release to chart this week is Strong Bad Episode 4 - Dangeresque with no sign of Target Toss Pro: Bags. Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam must not have been very yummy as it's still not made an appearance on the charts as of yet.
The big climber this week was easily Brain Challenge that jumped 13 spots up to #4, while the biggest dropper was Strong Bad Episode 3 - Baddest of the Bands which dropped 9 spots to #14. The Strong Bad episodes have had a very strong showing on the WiiWare charts, although Episode 2 seems to be the underachiever of the group at the moment.
