As promised, Strong Bad Episode 4: Dangeresque 3 (Telltale Games, 1 player, 1,000 Wii Points) is delivered to the Wii Shop channel today. The fourth in the five-part adventure series has Strong Bad playing the role of a dirty cop and action hero Dangeresque ... and something about cash and girls. Sounds like my weekend at the Baltimore NARP.
Also hitting WiiWare is the unfortunately titled Target Toss Pro: Bags (Incredible Technologys, 1-16 players, 700 Wii Points). As if the title wasn't bad enough on its own, finding out the game is about bean bag tossing might be the final nail in the coffin for this bar-game-turned-digital-download. It also doesn't help that press release reads: "Bags -- or Cornhole, as it's called in some parts of the country -- originated in the Midwest in the 1960s and has since become a staple at outdoor social events from coast to coast." Oh really?
Virtual Console gets some love this week, with Space Invaders: The Original Game (Super NES, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points), which has a misleading title. You see, it's not the original game -- there's a bonus versus mode -- but it does offer plenty of ways to emulate the two-tone look of the classic cabinet and more.
Finally, there's Forgotten Worlds (Sega Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 Wii Points), which we hope you haven't forgotten ... because it's awesome. Capcom's ebony and ivory space duo predates the Obama/Biden ticket by some 20 years. Significant? I think the history speaks for itself.
