    Lowdown on the Download- Wii Shop Update 15/08/08
    Friday, 15 August 2008
    It's Friday it's European Wiiware and Virtual Console update day!




    Wiiware

    Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People- 1000 points
    My Aquarium- 500 points

    Virtual Console

    Nothing!

    So it's a bit disappointing to see no Virtual Console games today, but we do get Telltale Games' latest point and click adventure. With the episodic Sam and Max almost single handedly reviving the point and click genre it is nice to see them lend their hand to something different. Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People is again a licensed game based on the flash shenanigans over at www.homestarrunner.com (which includes some flash games designed with the Wii in mind) There are tons of cultural references in the Free Country USA universe they have created as well as smatterings of in jokes. It is worth visiting the site and watching some of the hilarious flash movies to get yourself into the vibe of the world and it will help you appreciate the game's humour. Aside from the script and comedy the game is a very playable point and click with plenty of variety in the puzzles and situations thrown up. This download is the first in a series of downloadable episodes that will be hitting the Wii every month.

    My Aquarium is a simple virtual pet game whereby you look after various species of fish. You required to tender to their every need and making sure you keep them fit and healthy. Oddly the game uses the Wii Weather Channel to give season weather despite most real world aquariums being unaffected owing to them being indoors. Their is little to do with this game besides looking after and acquiring different species, but at just 500 points it is unlikely to offend.
