See what you're missing out on

WiiWare, it's safe to say, hasn't had quite the impact some would have hoped. Its problems have been well-documented — not least on this site — but Nintendo UK is throwing more weight behind the service with a new online portal called We are WiiWare.

Designed to showcase some of the best games and the teams responsible, the videos go behind-the-scenes at developers including RedLynx, Frontier Developments and Curve Studios. The games chosen by Nintendo as headline WiiWare titles are:

Hey guys have you heard about this new download service called DSiWare? I hear it's going to be great. Can't wait until Nintendo's website in 2015.

All these videos have been available in the Nintendo channel previously, haven't they? I know for a certainty I saw the MotoHeroz video when I checked the channel a couple of days ago.

Then again, who even knows there is a Nintendo channel. Nintendo's fault for not integrating the functionality into the shop channel from the start.




How about pushing for all those EU missing ware games that the NA customers have had for several months? That may help, y'know

How about removing this STUPID RIDICULOUS download limit for Games so the developers are FREE to create their vision, Super Meatboy springs to mind.

This would have been good a few years ago.

You know, when WiiWare had a shot at actually being relevant.

the cool guy always turns up late to a party.

It's almost the same as the Nintendo Channel, that's superflous.

Nintendo of Europe should give us some good games from USA that aren't released in Europe instead. For example MDK2.

Or they should offer us a way to play games from other regions on PAL consoles. Maybe the NTSC-Channel. I would even pay 500 points for it.

Also, can we transfer to Wii U? Cos I aint downloading shiz until that is certain.
