Nothing whetting your gaming appetite this week? Well, it's good to know that you can play the back nine with Kirby, attack hordes of monsters with a pinball, or conquer the forces of darkness with this week's three new virtual console releases for the Wii.

  • Kirby's Dream Course (1994, Super Nintendo, 800 Wii points)--This Kirby adventure has you hitting the links on a number of golf courses inspired from the series.

  • Devil's Crush (1990, Turbografx 16, 600 Wii points)--Devil's Crush is an action pinball game and the sequel to Alien Crush. Instead of flashing lights and rails, this game has you using flippers to destroy enemies.
