Nintendo quiet on list of WiiWare launch games

No details until May 12

With less than a week until the downloadable game platform launches next Monday on Wii, Nintendo has yet to divulge what gamers can look forward to.

According to Game|Life, it's looking more and more like Nintendo will only announce a list of launch titles the day of release, on May 12. It would be an anti-climatic debut for sure, but one that's consistent with the low-profile, indie games to be featured on the download service, much like Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Store.

In March, Nintendo launched the WiiWare service in Japan. Though American launch titles will likely vary (here's hoping the lovable Lost Winds makes the cut), notable releases in Japan included Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As a King (US$15), Dr. Mario and Virus Extermination ($10), Star Soldier R ($8), and Ping-Pong ($5).

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
