There's no Virtual Console this week, but there is a game about giving people massages. So ... yeah.

WiiWare is also host to a sequel to Hudson's My Aquarium, while DSiWare features a gravity-shifting puzzle adventure, chess, an extremely complicated-looking music program and something for the little ones. Your kids learn how to count, while you learn chess and massage techniques! Education!

WiiWare
  • My Aquarium (Hudson, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): A followup to one of the most popular games on WiiWare. Create your own aquarium full of various aquatic life. You can connect the game to the Forecast Channel (remember that?) to make your aquarium's appearance change with the weather, and send your layout to friends.
  • Enjoy your massage! (Microforum, 1 player, 500 Wii Points): As a new masseur, you practice massage techniques on six customers (whose backs are conveniently divided into square areas).
DSiWare
  • TURN: The Lost Artifact (Creative Patterns, 1 player, 800 DSi Points): Guide two explorers through a perilous landscape -- by turning the rooms they're in 90 degrees to the left or right.
  • Rhythm Core Alpha (SoftEgg, 1 player, 500 DSi Points): A very complicated-looking music sequencer for the DSi, designed for live performance.
  • Absolute Chess (Tasuke, 1-2 players, 200 DSi Points): This chess game offers tutorials, multiple AI opponents, and multiplayer through Download Play.
  • Did It Myself ABC123 (Powerhead Games, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): An activity suite for kids aged 1-5. Learn about counting, colors, letters, and more -- like, hopefully, "being really careful with the DSi."
