The more I remember that music the more I miss just browsing through the shop channel and then there's all the games I got to revisit because of it, one of my main memories of the Wii was booting that up for the first time to download Mario 64. Then there's all the classics that were new to me like Dynamite Headdy, Sin and Punishment and Super Mario RPG. Then there's WiiWare of course which had some wonderfully niche stuff, anyone remember Tomena Sanner or Let's Catch, those were the kind of thing I never expected to be playing on the Wii, bonkers.

Gonna boot it up again and see what I can pick up before it goes, never played Bonsai Barber for example, think I'll give that a whirl.

Today's the month!

Is there anything I should be looking to get on WiiWare before it's too late?

Bonsai Barber, You, Me & The Cubes, Tomena Sanner, MaBoShi: The Three Shape Arcade and Excitebike: World Challenge are my shouts. There's other quality stuff too, but those are five that I don't see coming anywhere else.

Didn't it have some good Konami (shudders) games as part of a rebirth series or something?

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is a top game. I didn't play any of the other ReBirths... or, shamefully, any of the games on Cappa's list. Embarrassed

Shoutouts to the quirky And Yet It Moves and the exquisite Hydroventure. Thumbs Up!

I've never downloaded anything on the Wii and seeing this ending on the 26th is there anything I have to 100% download be it WiiWare or VC release not easily got otherwise?

Really though, those games I listed a few posts up, get those.

I'll have a look at those along with the Konami ones, just didn't know if there was a 10/10 BotW type deal to rush out and get.

Hydroventure is the only near unmissable game I can think of.

World of Goo was probably that 10/10 exclusive ten years ago, but not anymore. Hydroventure is probably unmissable, but I didn't play it enough to really say. Otherwise...what takes your fancy?

Agreeing with Hydroventure. I genuinely can’t think of anything better on the service.

Can't see much from the VC front was thinking Rondo of Blood but got that on PSP, Orge Battle 64 from what I can see is on the Wii U VC. I'm guessing other Turbo Grafx games like Rondo might be worth a look but didn't a bunch come to Wii U recently.

Didn't hydroventure get a 3DS version or something? Anyway I've downloaded Castlevania, I had a look at some others you guys mentioned but seem pricey in 2018, surprised Nintendo didn't have a sale before the store shuts.

Hydroventure had a sequel on 3DS, which was subtitled ‘Spin Cycle’. It wasn’t quite as good... although it was good. The original was a beautiful Metroidvania, but Spin Cycle had a level-based structure and subsequently didn’t feel quite as expansive and exciting. Castlevania The Adventure ReBirth is good fun.

I have tried to give this some thought, but... my opinion is that most of the good Wii games have since been ported to yer currently-available generation...

It's all about the curios, but most of them were published on disc anyway. So that leaves the digital-only curios (well worth checking out since a lot of Wii software was a product of its time) and the virtual console stuff that isn't available anywhere else outside of the original, and likely expensive, cartridges/CDs.

Curios worth checking out:

You, Me and the Cubes
MaBoShi
Let's Catch
Art Style games (Cubello and Penta Tentacles especially, as they weren't remakes of the GBA ones)
ExciteBike World Rally
Bubble Bobble Plus (the last and best modern BB)
Konami's "Rebirth" games - CastleVania, Gradius, and Contra Rebirth
Tomena Sanner
Muscle March
Bonsai Barber
Hydroventure
Bomberman Blast (still great for local play and plays differently to R on Switch)

Doesn't really matter now, seeing you can't buy anything unless you've got funds leftover.

This is one that I'm gutted I'll never get to play as it looks like great fun. I miss Castlevania. Aww!

Fingers crossed that the boys Belmont turning up in Smash are a good sign of things to come.

I did break my rule of not giving Konami any money by buying Castlevania Rebirth as it's something I would like to play and preserving it.

I picked up CastleVania Rebirth earlier this year and it is indeed good fun, if not brutally difficult. Still, I don't think you're missing that much, Rondo of Blood is still on another level really. Gradius Rebirth was also a bit disappointing compared with II and III. One thing the Rebirth games do nail is the audiovisual presentation, something you can still appreciate somewhat by searching up videos of the games.

I've still got 4,600 points left on my Wii Shopping Channel! I'd have found fronkhead's list to be helpful had I not already downloaded all of those games. I'm a bit unsure what to go for now though - any other suggestions folks?
