I may have to retract my ealier comment about this being a bad week for WiiWare. I just popped onto YouTube and watched some of the videos for Furry Legends. It's not a bad looking game at all. It looks like they blatently stole Lost Winds level design and put the gameplay of Night Sky (a rolling ball solving puzzles) in place of flying around with Toku the leaf boy.  

It looks like this game's biggest crime is just having one of the worst names any game has had since the Munchables.  It may be worth waiting to see some reviews.

So, hey... D'ya think they've stopped the VC games because they are trying to minimize the backlash when they come clean and admit there is no migration of our games to Wii2?

I'm only 15% serious.

God I hope that's not the case. That would suck.

I'll be the first to admit that they've probably put out 80% to 85% of the eligible rerelease library, with the rest of the games being stuck in ownership limbo or with devs who think the game is too valuable to put out (ie Square-Enix with the DQ games). But between 7 consoles there should still be enough to let one or two VC games out each week.

No I don't think the lack of VC titles is to minimise a potential backlash for no transferability to Wii2. I'm 100% certain all 3 next gen systems will be fully bc with current gen along with all dlc and games. I believe the only reason for the trickle of VC titles is to push Wii-ware and DSi-ware games.
