This week's downloadable titles on Wii are a mixed bag. We get what appears to be some shovel(Wii)ware, but a tried-and-true classic on the Virtual Console. Sure, it's a niche genre, but it's still 100% classic
.Virtual ConsoleOgre Battle: The March of the Black Queen
(SNES, 1 player, Rated E for Everyone, 800 Wii Points): The classic strategy title finally
comes to the Virtual Console. Personally, our own experience with the franchise has been mainly through the N64 seque
l, so we're anxious to give this one a whirl. Look for it in our VC in Brief
segment later today.WiiWareFamily & Friends Party
(Gammick Entertainment, 1-8 players, Rated E for Everyone, 1,000 Wii Points): Billed as "an interactive board game," this WiiWare title sounds a lot like Mario Party
in its description and supports up to eight players.
