WiiWare and Virtual Console releases for this week

Rounding up the WiiWare and Virtual Console releases for the week of 9/8.

This week brings us another rhythm game for WiiWare along with a pair of Turbografx 16 imports for the Virtual Console.


  • Groovin' Blocks (Empty Clip Studios, 800 Wii points): Groovin' Blocks is one part puzzler, one part rhythm game where following the beat of a song will help you reach a higher score. Play through up to 27 levels, all with their own beats.
Virtual Console

  • Final Solider (1991, Turbografx 16, 700 Wii points): Final Solider is a top-down shooter released within the Star Solider series. Play through various levels or try your skill at a 2- or 5-minute speed run while blasting your way through enemies.
  • Cho Aniki (1992, Turbografx 16 CD-Rom, 900 Wii points): Arguably one of the strangest games ever made, Cho Aniki is finally released in North America via the Virtual Console. Play as either Idaten or Benten as you try to stop the Planet Builder who basically controls the entire universe. Like we said, strange. You've been warned.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
