Let's Pretend This Week's Nintendo Download Was Worth Waiting For

Another week has passed, and once more Nintendo has brought us an amazing lineup of downloadable goodies! Mega Man for the Game Boy! Bridge! That other game! Excitement!

And I'm spent.

No real excitement this week. Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge is nice if you like recycled NES content, and Hearts is a game I don't think I'm old enough to play yet. *checks pulse* Nope, still have a pulse. MotoHeroz for WiiWare looks colorful and somewhat exciting, but it's also 1,500 Wii points, or $15.00, and with no demo available I can only stare at it suspiciously

Defense of the Middle Kingdoms
Publisher: Aksys Games
Price: $4.99 / 500 DSi Points
In DotMK, you place stationary soldiers on the map, in an effort to halt the oncoming forces' progress. Opposing soldiers will walk along a predetermined path, and it is therefore your mission to successfully defend your waypoint. Enemies will come in waves, trying to invade your territory. If you can keep them from reaching the end of the path, then victory is secured. If the enemies manage to slip by your defenses, they will damage your defense point. If the defense point number reaches 0, then it is your defeat.
