It's Thursday, and Nintendo has updated its various digital delivery services with fresh new games, some that come close to being more exciting than the appearance of the 3D Glee concert musical trailer that hits Nintendo Video today!
I know what you're thinking. What could possibly be more exciting than a 3D Glee trailer? Nothing. That's why I said almost. You guys really need to start reading more carefully.
So what comes close? Microforum's WiiWare shooter Kyotokei is right up there, with colorful graphics, unique enemies, and two-player co-op action. Crazy Hamster for DSiWare inches close as well, if only because it's called Crazy Hamster. My Asian Farm lets you grow Asian people, unless I read the description wrong. That's pretty exciting.
Oh wait, read that wrong. Nevermind.
