One game was already announced beforehand, and the other was almost guaranteed to come out! It's still a nice duo of games, however.
Fun! Fun! Minigolf was released in the US two weeks ago. As the title implies this is a golf game - Graphically it's easily one of the strongest games on WiiWare, but the game is sort of lacking in actual gameplay, as, while it starts rather simple, it gets hard quick. There is multiplayer, but when your friends are all playing the game for the first time, it becomes more of a challenge to see who can actually clear each hole instead of who can do it in the lowest amount of shots! We thought it was ok, but not that great.
Strong Bad Episode 5: 8-Bit is Enough is the conclusion of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People (For now?). It's the episode which is most likely to appeal to fans of the flash cartoon, as the beloved Trogdor finally makes an appearance, and the whole game revolves around him! We thought it was one of the better entries in the series, but obviously, if you didn't like the gameplay style of any of the previous four episodes, this one isn't going to win you over!
Not a very surprising start to 2009! What will we get in this year's first VC update, we wonder?
