In the world of downloadable video games, this week’s forecast calls for nonstop showers of awesomeness. A flood watch is in effect as heavy levels of high-quality digital entertainment threaten to disrupt boredom and bad moods across the country. Gale-force fun is expected as games like Ferrari GT: Evolution, where you take part in exclusive races around the globe, System Flaw Recruit, an innovative action shooter, and Scrabble™ Slam! arrive via the Nintendo DSiWare™ service. Also offered is DodoGo!, an adventure set in the time of the dinosaurs, Don’t Feed The Animals, a strategic defense game about children who have been hoarding their treats all summer in their backyard fort, and finally you can help reunite the missing baby puffin eggs with their mothers in Puffins: Let’s Roll.
Wii™ owners are advised to stock up on snacks and fresh batteries for their Wii Remote™ controllers, as new titles for the WiiWare™ and Virtual Console™ services may keep them confined to their living rooms for quite a spell. Over on the WiiWare channel, there is 5 Arcade Gems, a collection of five wacky arcade games, and Brain Drain, a funny and challenging puzzle game.
Originally released in 1995, THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’95 is a fighting game that features main characters from the popular Fatal Fury, Ikari Warriors, Psycho Soldier and Art of Fighting games and tops off our VC listing.
As a special bonus this week, Nintendo Channel visitors can also access a free demo version of the game Picross 3D™ for the Nintendo DS family of systems. This remarkable new puzzle game is easy to play but hard to put down. It combines the fun of crossword puzzles and sudoku with delightful 3-D images. Players must use logic and deductive reasoning to reveal hidden objects within blocks of numbered cubes.
This temporary demo version is available at no charge for a limited time..
