WiiWare Games Are Uniformly Awesome and Weird

Have you heard of WiiWare? It’s like a second Virtual Console on your Wii, except of downloading old, often terrible games, you can download new, fantastic ones. Seriously, every trailer I’ve seen for a WiiWare game has been bizarre and great. The most baffling one is World of Goo:

I have no idea what’s going on, how you play or what you’re supposed to do, but I’m intrigued, which is more than I can say for anything that’s come out so far for the PS3. If the mysterious goo isn’t doing it for you, you’re welcome to check out the Strongbad game (do people still watch Strongbad? Is that what you kids are into?) and the Major League Eating game, which including licensed eaters like Kobayashi and bazooka barfing.
