This week, we must thank Sunsoft once again for keeping the Virtual Console alive (if not entirely lively) with its release of Aero the Acrobat 2. Meanwhile, Nintendo offers a DSiWare app that allows you to make something with which gamers are entirely too familiar: countdown calendars. We must admit, though, that it's more fun when they count down to a personal milestone of instead of an artificial deadline for the release of information.

Head past the break in 3 ... 2 ... 1 to see this week's Virtual Console, WiiWare, and DSiWare stuff.

WiiWare

  • Triple Throwing Sports (The Code Monkeys, 1-2 players, 500 Wii Points): All your favorite sports about throwing stuff, like javelin, shot put, and hammer throw. What, no caber toss?
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar's ABCs (Cybird, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): This alphabet learning game, based on the popular children's book, is one of the few EC-rated games available on a console.
Virtual Console
  • Aero the Acrobat 2 (SNES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Aero jumps and spins through 45 new levels -- and also snowboards, for some reason. Circus, acrobatics ... snowboarding. Makes sense.
DSiWare
  • Nintendo Countdown Calendar (Nintendo, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): Create countdowns for upcoming events! Hideo Kojima's going to love this.
  • GO Series 10 Second Run (Gamebridge, 1 player, 200 DSi Points): This simple-looking platformer sends you dashing through stages with a 10-second time limit.
  • Everyday Soccer (Aksys Games, 1-2 player, 500 DSi Points): Customize your own players and team in this soccer game.
