VC and WiiWare releases for the week of September 1


Happy Labor Day! No, that wasn’t a greeting, it was a statement. This is a happy Labor Day. Why? Because Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (Super NES, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points) is finally out in celebration of the fact that 250 games have been released over the VC. That’s a whole bunch of classic gaming, much of which won’t fit in your Wii’s memory space anyway. If you do feel like needlessly filling it up though you can download Clu Clu Land (NES, 1-2 players, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points) as the other VC game or My Aquarium (Hudson Entertainment, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points) as the WiiWare release.

If you don’t know what Super Mario RPG is then you’re an idiot because not only is it one of the best RPGs EVAR, but its name is also pretty self explanatory. Clu Clu Land is obvioulsy a puzzle game that takes place underwater so no need to explain that simple title either. My Aquarium on the other hand has a name that is far too complicated to figure its subject out with. First there is the “My” part. What’s that mean? Like it’s a bunch of fake fish that belong to you and you can feed them and breed them? And then the “Aquarium” part? I don’t even know what that word means! Is it a glass tank that the fish live in and grow bigger except in this case it would just be your TV or what? Wait? That’s right? Well then, there you have it.
