Posted by James Newton

Is it a good Friday?

It's certainly a quiet Friday, with one new title for WiiWare and a pair for DSiWare. Read on to find out what's vying to take your Nintendo Points away from you this week.

WiiWare

Ubongo (Korner Entertainment, 800pts) — The popular board game comes to WiiWare courtesy of Korner, the same team that brought you Fireplacing. With support for four players and various game modes this might be worth a punt for 800 Points, so stay tuned for our upcoming review.

DSiWare

Valet Parking 1989 (Zordix, 500pts) — An unashamedly kitschy celebration of the 1980s that puts you in the shoes of a valet parking assistant in sunny California. We'll see how well this one shapes up in our upcoming review.

GO Series: Tower of Deus (Gamebridge, 200pts) — Another bite-sized title from Gamebridge, you must ascend 40 levels of the titular tower to get to the top and presumably rescue someone. We'll aim to get to the bottom of it with a full review next week.

ENJOY A BRAND NEW TWIST TO AN AWARD WINNING BOARD GAME, LIVE IT UP IN CALIFORNIA OR EXPERIENCE AN EERIE ADVENTURE

Ubongo is one of Europe’s most popular board games. This week you are invited to experience the thrill of playing your favourite board game - all new and improved on WiiWare.

Rather dire update by the look of things. Oh well, Ubongo looks like it could be worth a spin

Unless Ubungo is really, really good. This is a crap update for Wii owners. Not even a demo.

@ CMM

We usually get a game every two weeks. This week is our no-VC game week. However...

@ Fuzzy

Maybe. Its not up on the website but Ignition Factor is for the 13th. Whether they will add a game for the 29th remains to be seen. It would suck hard if they didn't though.

When is Axelay getting a Europe release - its been out in the US for many months. Konami wouldn't comment when I emailed and asked them. They must know it would sell on VC so why have they ignored its release??
