Nintendo Downloads: Aero the Acrobat, Puffins, Insurgents and Octopodes

After three weeks without releasing a single Virtual Console game for Wii, Nintendo has slipped Aero the Acrobat into this week's batch of Wii and DSi downloadable titles. If the batty SNES platformer is not to your tastes, well then, perhaps you might be more interested in a spot of diving, racing puffins or blasting insurgents?

"Exactly. When ever I see the word all I can think of is Jake Rodkin saying "Puffinths!!""

Nintendo Downloads: All Things Adorable

As today brings another batch of weekly DSi and Wii downloadable releases without a Virtual Console title, Nintendo has apparently stacked its hands with cute, friendly and adorable games in the hope of distracting you from your misery. Look, kittens!

Nintendo Downloads: Toribash

A WiiWare version of the physics-driven violence simulator Toribash is the highlight of this week's North American DSi and Wii downloadable releases, though turning a DSi into a retro-style keyboard for $2 is surely also tempting. No Virtual Console this week.

Nintendo Downloads: Pearl Harbor, Cowbots

Presumably to mark the fourth of July, this week's batch of downloadable releases for the DSi and Wii includes looks at two very different periods in the USA's history--the tension following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor and the days when that wicky-wicky wild, wild West was roamed by steam-powered robot cowboys.

"there's something just a little fucked up about a pearl harbor game on a japanese console."

Nintendo Downloads: Bear and Puffins and Dinos Oh My!

There's no Virtual Console title in this week's batch of new Wii and DSi downloadable releases but who needs yet another platformer that was a bit dodgy even back in 1987 when you can have puffins, bears, jellyfish, sharks, dinosaurs and primordial ooze?

"Puffins. Also, Art Style Rotozoa (aka Peta Tentacles in Europe) is wonderful and addictive."

Nintendo Downloads: Bejeweled 2, Shadow of the Ninja, Silent But Deadly

Not even E3 can hold back the inevitable weekly batch of downloadable releases for the Nintendo DSi and Wii, which is jolly lucky for us all as this week's brings not only Bejeweled 2 but also the opportunity to beat the fast fingers of "Master Higgins."

"Okay, seriously, are the Flips series games intentionally written with the goal of double ..."

This week's batch of Wii and DSi downloadable releases hits the ground running with Gaijin's latest rhythm game BIT.TRIP RUNNER and Frogger Returns, with a wide selection of puzzlers, shooters and read 'em ups bringing up the rear.

""Chiptune supergroup Anamanaguchi makes a guest appearance." Fuck yes."

Nintendo Downloads: Earthworm Jim, Photo Dojo, Phoenix Wright - Trials and Tribulations

The Virtual Console drought continues in this week's batch of downloadable Wii and DSi releases, though with Earthworm Jim, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations and Photo Dojo arriving, who'll miss another lacklustre arcade shooter?

Nintendo Downloads: The Simple Fact About Balloons

Monday morning can only mean a new round of downloadable releases for the Nintendo DSi and Wii, this time including "an exciting puzzle game based on the simple fact that popping balloons is fun," BLOONS. How 'blooning' marvellous.

"Is this the first week since the launch of the Wii where the Virtual Console didn't get an update?"

Nintendo Downloads: Puffins, Dodos, Bears, Turtles, The King of Fighters '95 and Augmented Reality

If you love wildlife, you'll love this week's batch of North American downloadable releases for the Nintendo Wii and DSi. Those who prefer violence over cuteness, however, can pummel faces in The King of Fighters '95 or turn their home into a slaughterhouse in the DSi augmented reality shooter System Flaw Recruit.
