Nightly News Roundup
Where’s The Virtual Console?

Another week of Nintendo download goodness has come without the support of Nintendo’s older consoles. While gamers are privy to two WiiWare and three DSiWare titles including Nnooo’s latest entry in the myNotebook series, fans of the classics will have to make do with the already established back catalogue of retro games. Hopefully Nintendo will break this slump next week, or maybe it has released all the titles it wants to for the service. What games would you like to see finally released on Virtual Console after all this time? Leave us a comment below. Here’s the official PR for the games that were released; to see the full descriptions of each piece of software, follow the source link:

Believe it or not, September is just around the corner. How do you want to spend the waning days of summer? You could plunge yourself into an intergalactic battle with Space Trek or A Monsteca Corral: Monsters vs. Robots for the WiiWare service. You’ve also got some interesting hand-held options to consider via the Nintendo DSiWare service: rule two screens at once in Divergent Shift, enjoy classic tile-matching in 3D Mahjong, take note of the world around you with myNotebook: Carbon or try karaoke with a soccer-loving twist in Just SING! National Anthems. Choose any or all of the above and savor the downloadable fun before another summer slips away.

New Epic Mickey Trailer revealed

Looking forward to Mickey’s epic adventure? Warren Spector revealed the first part of the opening movie at the end of his keynote at GDC Europe in Cologne, Germany. Part one reveals the origins of the wasteland by mirroring a 1930 Mickey Mouse cartoon “Thru the Mirror.” You can watch that video embedded below, but you’re going to have to wait a couple of weeks for part two.

Love Plus = Practice?

One to file in the WTF file: Konami has reached out to thousands of lonely Japanese men with its Love Plus series on DS. While having a girlfriend in real life may be too difficult, many have taken their love of these digital girls a little too far prompting one player to attempt to marry his game girl. Thankfully there is hope. That’s right, a 21-year old Japanese businessman who is participating in Konami’s Love Plus Tour for the third year in a row says that he sees his virtual girl as training. “I think this might be good practice for when I can get a real girlfriend,” the unnamed businessman said. I promise you, I am not making this up.
