Wii Shop Channel Update, September 22nd, 2008

Mega Man 9 may be at the front of everyone's mind today, but don't let it blind you to todays other downloadable goodies.

Mega Man 9 (Capcom) - 1000 points: Throwback to the Mega Man games of yore, only somehow even harder. For those who love nostalgia and ripping out their own fingernails in frustration.

Plättchen Twist 'n' Paint (Bplus) - 1000 points: Quirky colour-based Austrian puzzle game, taking advantage of the unique control styles offered by the Wii Remote.

Virtual Console
Vectorman (Genesis) - 800 points: If one side-scrolling robot shooter isn't enough for you today, Vectorman would like to say hello. Pro tip: Sonic Gems Collection contains both Vectorman 1 and 2 (as well as several Sonic games not good enough for the Mega Collection) for just a couple of dollars more. Hooray for backwards compatibility!

Super Dodge Ball (NES) - 500 points: Fun fact - This game about people throwing balls at each other is from the Kunio-Kun series of NES games, which also includes River City Ransom. That's why the graphics are so similar. The more you know!

That's all for this week. Let's face it, any week with Mega Man is a good week to be a gamer.
