If a digital diary is the most noteworthy release, something must have gone horribly wrong

Nintendo of Europe has chosen not to release a Virtual Console game, instead giving you the choice of several games that will likely not appeal to many hardcore gamers out there. You have been warned!


Adventure on LOST ISLAND - Hidden Object Game (Ateam Inc., 500 Points) — More similar to "Aha! I Found it!" Hidden Object Game rather than Ateam's first WiiWare game, "Aha! I Got It!" Escape Game, this is another search for items across several different levels. We just put up our Adventure on Lost Island: Hidden Object Game review, so you can go read that if you want to know more.

Word Searcher (Digital Leisure, 500 Points) — As the title might give away, you also search for stuff in this title, but rather than finding objects, you have to find words within an arrangement of letters. It's a fairly boring affair, as our Word Searcher review will tell you.


myDiary (Nnooo, 200 Points) — Nnooo's on a roll this year, just having released myPostcards and a new set of myNotebook colours. Well, here's another completely new app - Basically sort of a logical extension of myNotebook, it allows you to keep track of important upcoming events day by day. We'll review the title soon.

Petz Hamster Superstar (Ubisoft, 800 Points) — Released in North America a while ago as Petz Hamsterz Family, this is another pet caretaking game in which you get to feed and play with a bunch of cute little hamsters. Our Petz Hamsterz Family review will tell you why you should pass on this!

Petz Nursery (Ubisoft, 800 Points) — But the fun doesn't end there, because that's not the only Petz title out this week. In this one, which is in fact a renamed Petz Kittens, you'll get to take care of and play with a bunch of different cat breeds instead. You can read our Petz Kittens review for our thoughts.

Word Searcher (Digital Leisure, 500 Points) — Pretty much the same as the WiiWare version, although the nature of the game itself means it is ever so slightly better suited to a portable system. Our other Word Searcher review will tell you all you need to know.

Not a lot of noteworthy things this week, really! Will you be sitting this one out or will you try anything?
