Another VC-less week for Wii owners but don't let that bring you down. Try putting some of those Virtual Console funds towards the amazingly humorous and violent Toribash. DSi owners get a few puzzle games, a French language tutor, and an app to make their own chiptune music.
Toribash: The fighting game where any movement you do counts as an attack. All of the fights are staged online so be sure to have a steady connection to keep the battles coming. A replay editor lets you edit footage of your tussles and send them over to friends. 1,000 Wii Points lets you experience the joy of flinging yourself butt-first into your rivals.
In Balloon Pop Festival, you must aim and link a series of balloon to create combos and increase your score. Keep it up as long as you can before the balloons reach a line at the bottom of the screen. Pop away for 800 Wii Points.
Primrose lets you solve puzzles at your own pace as you place colored tiles on a grid to have other groups of tiles change color. Feel free to make chains or one big move that changes everything at once for points. Color your way to victory for just 200 DSi Points.
