I woke up this morning, took a shower, but as I came back to my room i noticed that my Wii's slot light was on. A little peculiar, i wasnt expecting anything, and Check Mii Out notifications dont show up until night. So i boot up the Wii, and there's the letter i've been waiting for a long time, the Nintendo Channel was up.
Is this early? i heard it was supposed to launch with WiiWare, thats onlylike 5 days away though, and i'm not complaining.
Either way, thechannel's pretty cool despite having like only 5 minutes with it. Already i can see thee was about 9 pages worth of videos that i'll have to check out. The rating thing is pretty cool; basically it lets you give your opinion on anything you've played over an hour, including Wii games, VC games, and Channels. I only did it for Metroid Prime 3, but it was quick and easy and maybe it'll mean something.
Also i did the search feature, which was nice because it allowed you to view large boxart, has all the specs of the games, and even hada Purchase option that redirects you to the Internet Channel.
But my favorite part was the DS Download Station. It was simple to you, and finally, i was able to try out Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, and i can say just from a demo, i got a great feel for it. Maybe this is a start for Nintendo to see that demoes are really worth it.
What's everyone else think?
