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 lit...

Here's a great example of why you shouldn't sleep in. Every week, Nintendo sends out a release about its new downloadable game offerings of the week.

Blue Oasis looks like just the kind of thing we could use to contain our CONSTANT ATTACKS OF RAGE. A relaxed Josh from WiiFolder has carried out one of his excellent video tours of the game (we've slotted the video after the break, due to sizing issues), covering its impressively customizable aquar...

Hudson's virtual aquarium Blue Oasis will be available on the Japanese Virtual Console tomorrow, and new screens of fake fish hanging out in a fake tank have been released to promote it. The game has nice graphics and a fairly convincing, realistic style -- which makes the gloved pointer controllin...

The German USK ratings board site has been updated with a listing for a Wii game called My Aquarium from Hudson, which is probably the Blue Oasis WiiWare game whose announcement was fully and righteously overshadowed by Alien Crush. Blue Oasis hits the Japanese Wii Shop on June 24th, and this...
