WiiWare launches!

So, we finally got WiiWare, not that i'll be buying any yet; fundings, selection, etc. Anyways lets see what we've got:

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles : My Life as a King - 1500 points, plus extra fees for downloadable content.

LostWinds - 1000 points

Defend Your Castle - 500 points

Pop - 700 points

V.I.P. Casino: Blackjack - 700 points

TV Show King - 1000 points

A decent launch i guess, there's something for everyone. But since i have not purchased any of the games, the least i can do is talk about the interface on the updated Wii Shop Channel. So, when you go into the channel now, you'll have 3 main sections; Virtual Console, WiiWare, and Wii Channels. VC and Wii Channels (formerly WiiWare) are the same, but WiiWare has a few extra features. For one, when you select a game and then click More Details, an extra tab is available that'll let you view the entire game manual to give you a better idea. It's no demo, but its a feature that the VC can't say it has. Also, each of the titles now has a video on the Nintendo Channel, except for LostWinds, it has 2 videos.
