The bad news: there are no new Virtual Console titles out this week. The good news: there are two new WiiWare games to be getting on with.
First up is Block Breaker Deluxe, priced at 800 points (GBP 6 / EUR 8). "Block Breaker is basically Breakout - FOR A NEW GENERATION," explains Dan Whitehead, Eurogamer's official Professor of WiiWare.
"You do all the usual Breakouty block smashy stuff, picking up power-ups with the remote, but the twist is that you're taking part in a bright neon pink-and-blue undercover Block Breaker underground, like a weird fusion of Miami Vice and Stu-stu-studioline Hair Gel telly adverts and must impress people by winning presents for them.
"Think Breakout plus Dead or Alive Xtreme Volleyball all done in the style of the cover art of a "Best of Clubland 1994" CD compilation. It seems quite good actually."
The other title on offer is Cocoto Fishing Master, yours for 700 points (GBP 5.50 / EUR 7). As the prof puts it, "Cocoto Fishing Master is a cel-shaded fishing RPG in which you catch fish.".
