Life. It just gets better. When you wake up with a pounding hangover, a debt collector at the door, a nagging wife on the phone and a demanding boss wanting to know why you are slurring your words and are just about on the verge of giving up, Nintendo releases Mario Kart 64
to download on Wii?s Virtual Console for 1000 Wii points. Thank Christ for that.
1000 Wii Points is around seven quid or ten euros. Which is around two pints of expensive lager. Which is pretty much a no-brainer, click and get and play immediately. Mario Kart 64
for the cost of two pints makes you reconsider the morning?s earlier options of either doing yourself in and/or running away to Thailand to escape the taxman. Which is altogether a good thing.
The Associated Press news channel also goes live today, so you can check out news headlines from across the world via a 3D globe, very much like the Wii Weather Channel. We?ll look at it probably twice, then never again. But it?s good that it?s there. If you are very bored then you might want to take time out to go and have a look at it. It?s not as good as google news, but it?s a new Wii thing, so it?s mandatory that you have to play with it.
Oh, and there?s also some other Turbografx-16 game out on Virtual Console today ? Soldier Blade
which weighs in at 600 Wii points.
