Edit 05/04: Updated with NA known release dates. They are, of course, subject to change.

Disclaimer

This is not everything that is announced. The list of announced games is significantly longer. This list only includes games that I found to be worth following for one or more of the following reasons:
  •  It's a sequel to a popular/great game or part of a popular franchise
  •  There are favourable previews
  •  The game is already out in EU/JAP and received positive critics there
  •  There is interesting / good looking footage available

I am well aware of the fact that most probably, not all games will actually turn out to be good.

</disclaimer>

Let's see there. Not a lot of new stuff from the conference but that was to be expected, it's not aimed at people like us, after all, and all the big announcement had been made in the last few days and weeks already. Probably because the devs know Nintendo won't show a lot of non-"casual" content.

We have:

Q2 2009


Grand Slam Tennis (Sports, RELEASED)
Just like the other versions including all the modes + online, but with a different art style and highly praised MotionPlus controls. I have played it, I have played it online, and it's simply magnificent.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (Sports, RELEASED)
If there ever was a reason to get into golf games, it's Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 on the Wii with MotionPlus controls. It has been called the definite Wii Sports game.

Let's Tap (Party, RELEASED)
I don't know about you, but I think Let's Tap looks hilarious, and the people who have played it agree. I want to play a videogame by hitting a box. Yes, I do.

Dawn of Discovery (RTS, RELEASED)
The popular Anno series comes stateside in June as "Dawn of Discovery". An incredibly polished, greatly done RTS / Building Sim, this game has been getting nothing but good reviews. RTS on the Wii, people.

The Conduit (FPS, RELEASED)
The art direction is questionable, the campaign may be generic, but the Online Multiplayer makes this a title to keep an eye out on, especially for Wii-only users.

Resident Evil Archives (Survival Horror, RELEASED)
The REmake, now for Wii. If you don't already have it (why don't you?!), now's the chance.
A showcase of why the abandoning of prerendered backgrounds is such a horrible idea.

Another Code R (Adventure, RELEASED)
Adventure Goodness by the makers of Hotel Dusk. Hotel Dusk, people.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (JRPG, RELEASED) WIIWARE
A stupid name and, of course, another cash-in by Square-Enix. But it doesn't mess with the Final Fantay IV formula, so it can't do anything wrong.

Swords & Soldiers (Strategy, RELEASED) WIIWARE
True 2D Strategy with great multiplayer and a liking of detail. Out in Europe and critically acclaimed, look for this game when it hits the US Wiiware.

Tales of Monkey Island (Adventure, RELEASED) WIIWARE
The reskin of the first Monkey Island games comes to Wiiware, as does the episodic content. Woo.

Little King's Story (RTS/Adventure, RELEASED)
Mix Pikmin with Harvest Moon, then add a crapload of polish and some dark, cynical humor and you end up with Little King's Story. It received nothing but the highest praise and 90-reviews all over, and it comes stateside this summer. If you want to play the Wii GOTY contender, there's no way around Little King's Story.

Wii Sports Resort (Sports, RELEASED)
The MotionPlus Tech demo sports compilation everyone needs to play at least once. I am a little more hyped now after the E3 conference. Update: Wii Sports Resort has received the highest praise and reviews and after having played it alot, I can testify that this is more than a tech demo, and offers many hours of entertainment.

Phantom Brave: We Meet Again (Strategy JRPG, August 4)
Wii iteration of the niche, but popular PS2 turn-based strategy RPG. Like Disgaea? Then look out for Phantom Brave. It has gotten AA reviews now.

Metroid Prime Trilogy (FPS, August)
All three Metroid Prime games with Wiimote controls on one disc. Sold.

Contra Rebirth (Arcade, August)
 The popular series is coming to Wiiware. Prepare to die. A lot.
 

Q3 2009



Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (Survival Horror, Q3 2009)
Every hands-on so far drooled about the goodness of this game. A fresh attempt at retelling the first game, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories looks very ambitious, very good, and the hands-on and footage released from E3 speak for themselves.

NFS Nitro (Racing, 2009)
If you're a racing fan and only own the Wii, this is the title to look for. Of course, you probably wouldn't only own a Wii if you were a racing fan. Still, EA seems to be pretty confident about this title.

The Sky Crawlers (Arcade/Flightsim, Q3 2009)
The japanese made a storydriven game that has you control planes by wiimote and nunchuck tilt. Check out a trailer.
 

Q4 2009


Guitar Hero 5 (Party Music game, September 1)
It's Guitar Hero. Surprise.

Cursed Mountain (Horror / Adventure, September 3)
Very little is known about this one, except a few trailers and a general idea of the direction. I'm gonna go and mark it as "promising". The art direction is clearly something noteworthy.

Muramasa (2D Action, September)
There's absolutely no denying that this will be awesome. I played the japanese version and if you don't think it looks interesting, something is very, horribly wrong.

Dead Space: Extraction (Arcade FPS, September 29)
Unbelievably polished, very pretty, very atmospheric and praised by everyone. This Dead Space episode, I think, will surprise everyone very much.

Cave Story (Action Adventure, September 30) WIIWARE
Boost-up release of the immensely popular PC game on the Wiiware. Cave Story has been completey redrawn, composed, improved and made bigger. THE Wiiware hype right now.

TMNT Smash-Up (Brawler, September)
It's SSBB. With Ninja Turtles. Made by the guys who made SSBB. Got that? Okay.
 The Grudge (Survival Horror, October)
Formerly "Feel", this semi-guided survival/horror experience has not much information, other than the trailer. Coming to NA, there's no reason yet to not look forward to how this might turn out.

Rabbids Go Home (Platformer, October 6)
Word got out that this game transfers the traditional Rabbid humor into a twisted Adventure quite nicely. Keep an eye out for this title that many gamers will miss simply because of the cover.

Red Steel 2 (FPS, November 25)
After the new footage, I don't think there's a lot of doubt left that, at the very least, Red Steel 2 is highly ambitious, gorgeous, and will have great swordplay MotionPlus mechanics.

F1 2009 (Racing sim, November)
I don't know what people see in these games, but F1 2009 is coming to Wii and PSP later this year.
 Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles (Arcade FPS, December)
That one trailer showed the extremely cinematic presentation and got me ready for another arcade shooter. If it straightens out the issues with the first game, Darkside Chronicles could be a fantastic multiplayer experience. And it looks sweet, too.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (Fighter, Q4)
Finally confirmed for a NA release + new content and online MP

Super Meat Boy (Plattformer, Q4) WIIWARE
Another one of the PC-title Wiiware releases, Super Meat Boy sports 2D goodness with a weird, gorey humor.

Wii Fit Plus (Sports, Q4)
Slightly less interested in it now since it's really just an expansion pack and does not actually support MotionPlus. Still, if you played the first one, you know what you're in for.

Colin McRae DiRT 2 (Racing, Q4)
As long as the Arcade-approach is seen through with care, I don't see why not. Though not a lot is known about this version.
 Fragile (RPG/Adventure, Q4)
Coming to the US via XSEED. The art direction is beautiful, let's see what the localization will do to this very promising game.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Platformer, Q4)
The E3 presentation wasn't really representative, be sure to check out the trailer for tome "real" level design. If it is anything like the DS game, it'll be great. Especially in multiplayer. A big Boo to Nintendo for not including online MP, though.

A Boy And His Blob (Platformer / Puzzle, Q4)
Charming 2D platformer that is getting the first hands-on reports, all of which are extremely positive. More 2D awesomeness. Can't wait.

Arc Rise Fantasia (JRPG, Q4)
Another upcoming Wii classical JRPG by the makers of Luminous Arc.

TBA 2009



Final Fantasy: Chrystal Bearers (RPG)
Squeenix long-time RPG effort on the Wii is slowly nearing it's release. Lots of trailers and info has peaked even my interest, even though I despise FF spin-offs. High production value open-world storydriven action RPG goodness on the Wii.

Night Game (physics puzzle platformer)
A 2D physics platformer that- Oh, just look at that goddamn screenshot.
 Monster Hunter 3 (Action / RPG)
Monster Hunter is Monster Hunter is Monster Hunter. A guaranteed smash hit in Japan, this game will come stateside and will, most probably, be about hunting monsters in beautifully crafted Fantasy environments. Online Co-Op monster hunting? Yes, I say.

Span Smasher (Puzzle/Arcade)
The third title announced that required MotionPlus to work. Frenzy, puzzle-ish, IGN's "surprise E3" title and most probably excellent in multiplayer.

BIT.TRIP.CORE (Music) WIIWARE
Bit.Trip.Beat was awesome. Hands down. Short, hard, but great. Will CORE be even better? I like to think so.

Icarian: Kindred Spirits (Puzzle/Platform) WIIWARE
Breezy physics-puzzle-platformer in the spirit of LostWinds. Check out a trailer.

Monado: Beginning of the World (JRPG)
Judging from the shootage shown at E3, Monado is a hybrid of Skies of Arcadia, Final Fantasy XII and Fire Emblem. Be sure to check out the ambitious looking trailer!

Shaun White Snowboarding World Stage (Sports)
You guessed it: Balance Board support.

Spyborgs (Brawler)
The 3-player Co-Op brawler with the stupidest name ever. Very favourable previews so far.

Sam & Max: Season Two (Adventure)
If you don't know yet what the Sam & Max games are about, then.. then you probably don't care. Everyone else can play Telltale's latest, also coming to the Wii

Animales De La Muerte (Brawler?)
High Voltage Software is releasing some kind of brawler about zombified gorey mad pinata animal... things. Using the Quantum3-engine (The Conduit). Right? Right. It doesn't look like much, but with the right type of humor, this could be good.
  

Q1 2010



No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle (Action Adventure, January)
No More Heroes, but with more random randomness and sick humor, and upped production values. Almost finished and bound to be good.

Sin&Punishment 2 (Arcade Action)
It has been called TREASURE's finest, and those who have played it at E3 have come back with the highest praise.

Endless Ocean 2 (Adventure/sim)
The first positively received, but welcomed distantly because of the lack of real challenge. Endless Ocean 2 is said to improve on the first game, which was already praised for its visuals and atmosphere, in every way.

Shiren the wanderer 3 (roguelike)
The heavily stylized third "Mystery Dungeon" game is coming stateside, even though neither the genre (strategic RPG with a lot of randomly generated content) nor the series were ever really popular outside of the east. In Japan, the game competed with Metal Gear Solid 4 in the charts. A feast for some, unaccessible for others, but a quality game nonetheless.

Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga (Action-RPG)
I'm not going to lie to you: The first two games were supposedly sub-par. But we'll see. This game by Marvelous Entertainment (Muramasa) in the vein of Monster Hunter sports 60 quests and a Wifi-mode. 
 

TBA 2010+



Gladiator A.D. (Fighter)
Not much is known about it, other than the fact that it looks pretty and will have a lot of red.

The Grinder (FPS)
An Onslaught/L4D clone from High Voltage Software, this title has not much known about it. Killing vampires and other creatures in online Co-Op, hopefully benefitting from their netcode experience on The Conduit.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Platformer)
Obviously, there seem to be many designs, concepts and ideas that didn't fit into the first game. Mario gets another 3D platformer that looks exactly like the first one, but with more levels. As SMG was outstandingly briliant and beautiful, I don't think anyone minds.

Tales of Graces (JRPG)
Traditional JRPG that, judging from the trailers, seems to have quite a dark edge. Not confirmed for NA yet.

Metroid: Other M (Action / Platforming?)
With a cryptic trailer that didn't exactly reveal what the game was going to be like, this new action game in the Metroid Universe seems to have the production values behind it that could make for a new Smash Hit. We shall see.

Dragon Quest X (RPG)
No info available, not even a single picture. But it's Dragon Quest, right?

Military Madness: Nectaris (turn-based strategy) WIIWARE
Completely non-Japanese turn-based hexagony strategy game by Hudson with a lot of grey, and online MP. On Wiiware. True Story.

Takt of Magic (RTS / RPG)
First-party RTS RPG hybrid that uses Wiimote input for spells - Think TWEWY. A First-Party game co-developed by Nintendo and Teico. Doesn't look like much even by Wii JRPG standards, but it's getting a lot of buzz and praise. I'd keep my eye on it.

Winter (Horror)
Winter is not yet dead. The latest version called Winter 2.0 sports Wii Motion Plus support and n-space is very much willing to continue work on the game - If they find a publisher. I hold my fingers crossed.
 
 
And that's it, I think. A great list of upcoming games with HUGE 3rd party effort, spanning over a diversity of genres and styles. The future for the Wii looks FANTASTIC, and if you're mad at Nintendo for speaking to a different audience altogether at their E3 conference, do youself a favour and research a little on the above titles. 50 games, 30+ of which are exclusive to Nintendo's console, there's bound to be a at least one title for everyone. Forget the horrible 07/08. With Nintendo stepping back in the core games department, 3rd party finally stepped up to make this console more than worth it. Have fun.
#2 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

You need to add Cave Story and Tales of Graces, though i suppose we dont know for sure yet that Graces is coming stateside. Too bad you didnt make this a blog post so you could change the title to "top 32 games"

#3 Posted by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

Atlus localising Shiren the Wanderer 3 for the Wii, finally :)

#4 Edited by Mikemcn (6955 posts) -

Co-op on wii sounds fun, i hope it uses wii speak because otherwise theres no good way to talk to whos playing with you

#5 Posted by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

See some of my recent threads meo, you may have missed some games here and there. Monado, Endless Ocean 2, etc.

#6 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

I think I rather wait a day or two until all the announcements are in. And then the thread will get pixified.

Not that it keeps people from claiming there are no games to play.

Of course not. It doesnt help that Nintendo ignored most of them, when even mentioning a game at the Nintendo presser would give even a little known game a huge boost. You think Knights in the Knightmare would sell well if they mentioned it? Fuck yeah it would

What about Phantom Brave: We Meet Again ?

#9 Edited by Mikemcn (6955 posts) -

if you hear about any Non-Anime style RPGs tell me, i hate spiky hair
 
I'll try Monster Hunter though, looks cool

#10 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

Nintendo did a disservice to New Super Mario Bros. The new trailer they released looks so awesome and shows a lot more variety than intially indicated in the demo.

I just wanted a new Zelda. No, Spirit Tracks doesn't count. But, hey, at least a new Golden Sun is coming out. My balls really hit the wall on that one.

#16 Posted by Nasar7 (2606 posts) -

This thread rids me of some of that nintendo butthurt, many thanks meowayne. Still, nintendo obviously doesn't understand its core audience anymore, why couldnt they show this off at their conference?

#17 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

When is the Miyamoto keynote speech anyway? Maybe he'll have Pikmin 3 there?

#18 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

IGN talked with Reggie, and he said it was today, which means within the next few hours

According to jeff's twitter, he's waiting in line to enter the round-table. That was 8 minutes ago.

From that IGN link :(

"6:09 p.m.: No video or photography allowed, by the way, so if you're reading this, not happening. You're going to have to rely on my detailed, vivid descriptions."

#24 Posted by Budster (134 posts) -

They can still use their live blog though, just no video or photo's for the conference.
Don't worry Matt is a pretty good writer and editor for the IGN Nintendo ; )

#25 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

List updated. 43 titles and counting. Everyone who is complaining about the Wii lineup is making a complete fool out of themselves.

I want to add images, but Firefox likes to crash after I inserted 3-4 images. : /

#26 Posted by oldschool (7264 posts) -

I was already a happy Wii owner to begin with, but that list contains much awesomeness and makes me feel good all over  :-)  Compared to any interest I have with what is happening on the 360 (my other coonsole), there is no comparison - Wiin  :-)

#27 Posted by Pazy (2561 posts) -

This list may be quite large but honestly very few games on that list I can see myself getting. Only a couple even rank as possibilites and those are Grinder, Tasunoko vs Capcom (depending on how much I play alone of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core), Monster Hunter 3 (depending on how much Monster Hunter Freedom I play between now and then). Thats about it really, for me most of the rest of them seem like "just" sequels (and for the most part im still playing the originals) or are only good because they are on the Wii (like The Conduit).

Im still hoping some of these games feel better to me nearer there respective releases though, I really want to play my Wii.

#28 Posted by Meowayne (6084 posts) -
Thats about it really, for me most of the rest of them seem like "just" sequels (and for the most part im still playing the originals) or are only good because they are on the Wii (like The Conduit).
Or you just assume they are because you don't really know much about them, like LKS maybe, or Anno. And seriously, the Wii is getting a lot less sequel and a lot less demand and hype for sequels than every other platform. And in many cases, like Red Steel 2, Sports Resort or Silent Hill, the games are very far removed from the franchise they belong to, or their predecessors, and almost always have reasons to looking forward to them other then "it's a sequel to that game I liked".

But of course, it's all down to personal taste. There's maybe 2 or 3 games from Microsofts and Nintendo's conference that I would buy, because I am tired of action movie imitating games. And I imagine many of the list's titles will fail with the critics and gamers, as is always the case. It's purpose, mainly, is to show that the games are there, that they're coming, and that there is a lot of effort for the console to serve the regular gamer, even though Nintendo has largely abandoned them (which was reflected in their conference.)

Still, if you want to play Wii more, I strongly advise you to bring yourself to play more games that don't immediatly appeal to you. NOBODY is going to look at Little King's Story or Span Smasher and say: Wow, this totally looks like a game I wanna spend cash on!!1
but doing so rewards you with great fun and a reminder of why you started playing games to begin with. I had that revelation with de Blob.
It's extremely easy to look at, say, Gears2 and say: Hurr, hurr, cool. It's more difficult to spend money on, for example, LKS. I played both. and the fun one brings is in no way superior or inferior to the other.

Meo try using html to add image rather than "insert image". Use "edit html code" and put the code <img src="http://imageurlhere.com/img.jpg" /> instead. Upload your images on imageshack or something and use their links.

And @ Pazy: it's pretty much all the worthy titles. No, nobody's gonna be interested in buying all of them, but it's clear there's plenty of genres to choose from, I imagine that's the point of writing the genre next to them as Meo did. I don't see any stand-out cheap looking titles in this list to pretend that he's listed "just anything" whether it's worthy of attention or not. To imply such is absurd. Sure, some of these games may be duds in the end, but then again, so was "Haze" and "Lair" and "Too Human" after all their hype. It's inevitable shit like that will happen. Still, the volume of the titles seen here and the developers involved with them suggest many of these will turn out GREAT so Meo's point is made. It IS absurd to complain about the Wii not getting games.

Also, "just sequels"? Seriously? I mean, many of these are for sure, but they're hardly yearly franchises or something, it's a stretch to pretend things like "A Boy and his Blob" are a case of sequelitis because there was a game with the same premise and name in the 80s. As for some of the other sequels, some of it is pretty megaton type stuff. "FFXIII" was conference-worthy for Microsoft and "FFXIV" for Sony, and various "Metal Gear" titles for both of them, and they have their yet-more "Halo" and yet-more "God of War", but a large RPG franchise like "Dragon Quest X" or "Tales of Graces" is "meh, just a sequel" for the Wii? Talk about double standards man.

Not to mention the list is topped off with several original titles anyway, that aren't simply getting attention because they're on the Wii as much as you like to state that. "The Conduit"? Sure, let's pretend that's the case. What else? There's other FPS titles here, but I think most were impressed by how "Red Steel 2" is turning out regardless of systems owned. So, to apply "The Conduit" attitude on a list of over 40 titles is absurd.

#30 Posted by Milkman (16531 posts) -

I don't get why you Wii fanboys are constantly making these threads that just list games. Anyone can list games. That doesn't mean they're good....

Out of that whole list there are about 4 games that look interesting to me.

#31 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

That's pretty kewl Milkman, I'm glad to see you're turning around and can see some worthy Wii games. Good job, Meowayne, it's starting to work!

#32 Edited by Meowayne (6084 posts) -

Milkman, obviously you have not been following my threads. All of my threads, including this one, had a long time of research before them. The previous lists only included games I have, games that were critically acclaimed and/or games that I know a lot of people enjoyed.

This thread only includes games that, during research, I found to be promising / worth looking forward to.

Span Smashers, for example, looks horrible. I did not want to include it, originally. But IGN had a preview, and I read it. IGN liked it. IGN said it surprised them. Then I read it would be one of the few games that require MotionPlus to work. So it's on there. There's no game on that list that I don't believe can be good.
If I just wanted to make a list, there would be more games I could have included.
There are more than 40 Wii games announced. A lot more. These are the fourty that justify following them. Why do you think I wrote a comment to each one, when I could just have listed 100 games?

And for the 305483. friggin time:

Almost NONE of the games LOOK interesting. Do you think we take a look at Little King's Story and say WOW look at that game I definatly want to play that! Do you think anyone looked at De Blob and went Dude, must-buy! Look at Grand Slam Tennis! It's hideous! Force Unleashed looks absolutely awful! Half of my favourite Wii games have awful artstyles. Or to take the best example, even if it's not a Wii game:
The World Ends With You.
Doesn't even need a comment.

It's the whole POINT of listing them. We have learned that, just like it was in the SNES games, Wii games annot be assessed by looking at the title or two screenshots. Unfortunatly, as a Wii owner who wants to play games, you cannot wait to be advertised, because it doesn't happen. 95% of the games non-Wii owners play imitate movies. Of course you won't find any games on this list immediatly appealing to a mind toned that way.

Every game on this list has a reason to be there. Whether it's a successfull / popular predecessor, a compelling concept, the fact that it's already released in Europe and we've played it (another example is Murasama, for which I have a JAP copy here), or something as simple as an awesome looking trailer or a favourable preview.

So tell me, what went on in your mind before you convinced yourself that you don't find "Dawn of Discovery" and "Little King's Story" worth listing and looking forward to?

Quite simply because the people who care about these games  (those of us on message boards and whatnot) Will hear about them through other means.  They understand their audience for the conferee perfect in that regard.  Its not there to entertain you. 
The conference doesn't mean jack shit and isn't the end all be all method of delivery.  Hell Sin and Punishment 2 is playable on the show floor and wasn't mentioned once.  Everything in the conference was for a main stream audience.  Zelda, Metroid, Mario and then the expanded demographics.  You have to realize your in the minority even in 18-40 males that actually care about these games and what state they are in so far out from release. 
#34 Posted by Nasar7 (2606 posts) -
@bdouble: yeah I understand that, when I asked "why" I was more venting my frustration at what nintendo has become than seriously confused. thanks though.

Someone edited the first post to include more information! I am so sorry!

To make up for it, here's a picture of Kevin Spacey.

Obviously not all of these will be great, but a lot of them will be. 
#38 Edited by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

Are there omissions? Where's Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (not the lego title)? Is it out already? Also, is there a European release list so I can define my wishlist? It should be different as it should also list Another Code R for example, and of course some of the titles above are already released here, while perhaps others will be out later on...

#39 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

So far XSEED has the best release list, I don't see a single game from them that I won't buy.

#40 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

So...is that an official list or some fan made one?  Because I see no Metroid Prime Trilogy from Nintendo on that list.

(Yes, I know they're remakes, but they're still apart of the NPC series...at least the majority of the package is)

Its official. i supplied a link in the post before. Trilogy might not have a release date yet. 
#42 Posted by Al3xand3r (7574 posts) -

It has a few mistakes, all the Atlus games are 2010, Grand Slam Tennis is missing yet is out this month, Dawn of Discovery is also out this month and not next year (lol, it's out in Europe already), Trauma Team is not listed, and maybe others as well (Jones?).

Trilogy's being released August 24th.  It seems like Nintendo's sending it to die once again :(

Why do I go through the trouble of separating the noteworthy from the lame when you go and post that faulty list anyways?

I have stated it before but I am aware that there are good games coming to the Wii. I don't another thread to tell me that. Yes, the new No More Heroes, Mario Galaxy and Dead Space: Extraction all look promising. I will probably get them. Woot, woot....it's like any other game I plan on buying.

Huh? He just posted the official release dates, straight from Nintendo. There are a few mistakes and omissions here and there, and obviously it includes games regardless of quality, but it should help you see if you missed anything. He didn't overwrite your post or something, it's still just another response in your thread where the OP is what matters really...

This. I just added it so that you can make sure the list is correct and up to date.

Why do I go through the trouble of posting a colourful emoticon when you go and take the post at face value, anyways? : (

That is a lot of new games. But I still think the Wii is not my console.
