If anyone has been paying attention WiiWare has been seeing the kind of surge XBLA did early in the summer. Megaman 9, World Of Goo, Tetris Party and the Art Style games are all must plays and and the VC has some long awaited (Super Mario RPG) and some crazy (Cho Aniki?!) releases.
Of course the storage issue is still a problem. Now, Nintendo has unveiled a solution but in my opinion it’s a case of too little, too late.
A software update is coming in the Spring (too late) that will allow you to stream the games off your SD card but it will lack SD High Capacity support (too little).
I’ve viewed the sentiment that “Nintendo only makes games for teenage girls and Soccer Moms now” as a canard of the stereotypical game nerd/game critic with blog space to fill. Now, for me, these sentiments are starting to ring true.
This hurts for me to admit but if Nintendo is truly alienating the “Core Gamer” and the Big N should find itself behind the curve again (N64) who will be there to support them? Certainly not these gamers.
