Slim pickings this week for Wii owners but another classic Mega Man game more than makes up for it. Yet another round of Game & Watch games hit DSiWare for those who want a bit of Nintendo's history in their hands or need a quick gaming fix. Also available is a school life sim and an app to make your own postcards if you're creatively inclined.
Mega Man 4 introduces Russian scientist Dr. Cossack, who openly declares himself as the superior robot engineer over Dr. Light and unleashes eight robot masters as a test to see which of them is best. Aside from collecting the usual robot master weapons, Mega Man is given charged Mega Buster shots in addition to a few tools that must be sought after rather than won. This is another worthy NES classic to add to your Virtual Console library for 500 Wii Points.
Bang Attack has you slamming a hammer all over the place as you seek certain objects to smash. You'll still need to think about how you break things, ready yourself for some quick swings, and make use of bonus objects to mess with your opponent. Cause all the collateral damage you want for 500 Wii Points.
Over on DSiWare, Game & Watch returns for another round of games. Save Donkey Kong in Donkey Kong Jr. by swinging on ropes and dropping food on crows and alligators. Flagman has you memorizing the order in which flags are raised or raising the correct flag. Catch juggling balls in Ball but one miss and it's all over. All three G&W titles are worth 200 DSi Points and are a nice way to nab some quick Club Nintendo coins.
Surviving High School attempts to relive those teen years with various scenarios: trying out for the football team while wooing a girl, a school trip to Europe, and rehearsing for the school play. Each situation puts you in a different character's shoes and a bonus episode can be unlocked if you earn enough "good" endings. Check it out for 800 DSi Points.
myPostcards lets you make custom postcards with the DSi camera and some drawing tools. Use some of the included themes to fit the occasion and go from there. 200 DSi Points keeps things nice and cheap.
And for WarioWare: D.I.Y. owners, this week's "Big Name Game" is from WayForward Technologies' Matt Bozon, who has worked on great games such as Contra 4 and the Shantae series. His microgame "Shantae NAB!" stars the titular genie herself.
