Delayed by Canadian Thanksgiving... there's a lot here, but nothing that I personally care about.
Wii North America (October 9, 2007) - Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast - Balls of Fury - FIFA Soccer 08 - Bleach: The Shattered Blade - Thrillville: Off the Rails - Looney Tunes: ACME Arsenal - Mercury Meltdown: Revolution - Rock and Roll Adventures
VC North America (October 8, 2007) - Fatal Fury (Neo Geo, 900 points) - World Heroes (Neo Geo, 900 points) - Art of Fighting (Neo Geo, 900 points)
Is this the first slate of Neo Geo games for the VC? Some of them are pretty good looking games and fun to play, but I was never a Neo Geo fan during its original run so this probably isn't as exciting for me as it is for some other gamers.
I didn't even know that NeoGeo games were coming to the VC. These three I'm not particularly excited for, but there are others (King of Fighters '97, I'm looking in your direction) that I can not wait for. This is fantastic news to me.
Originally posted by StingArmyNew Wii updates this morning! I found three messages from Nintendo in my inbox, all relating to the new Wii Menu version 3.1. The most relevant change: you can now use a USB keyboard.
The system update errored out twice for me this morning. I gave up and decided to try again after work. Did this happen to anyone else?
SchippeWreck - I tried installing the updates when I got home from work yesterday and it took probably a dozen tries (over the course of several hours) to get them to finally complete.

I finally got it to work last night. My iMac keyboard works great (and it matches the Wii...bonus!), but I don't think I'll be using the feature much until I get a wireless keyboard or at least one with a longer cord. Trying to type and use the Wiimote that close to the TV at the same time is a BAAAAAD combination.
I never played the NES version... but I was an absolute king on the arcade version of Punch-Out! Of course, the arcade version was extremely pattern-driven, so it became a simple task of reflexes and memorization.
