You may have hoped that with the ho-hum new release week, we'd find some respite in the new Virtual Console releases. ... Well, no dice. Let's take a look, shall we?
Double Dribble (NES, 1-2 players, rated E for Everyone, 500 Wii Points): Is a police officer banging on your door like he's trying to serve a warrant? No! That's just the sound of the ball bouncing in Double Dribble, silly. For 500 points you can play a game that manages to be both a basketball simulation and a mental endurance test. Yippee!
Vegas Stakes (Super NES, 1-4 players, 800 Wii Points): Dear videogame industry: The next time you're going to work on a game that would would require people pay $8 to play SNES blackjack, don't. Why not go volunteer your time at a homeless shelter? Side note: If your grandma is one of the Wii's legion of old fans, you may want to let her know about this casino sim. Maybe it'll keep her out of the bingo halls.
Ecco Jr. (Sega Genesis, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): If your kid has never been able to master simultaneously pushing a button to make a dolphin swim and being totally bored, you can probably go ahead and blow those college savings on a Lamborghini. But at least now there's a game on Virtual Console made especially for them.
