Monday Update -- WiiWare and VC releases, XBLA Deal of the Week, review choice

Another Monday, another batch of Wii downloads available on the Wii Shop Channel.

Virtual Console pickings are slim this week as the only release is Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye from the Sega Genesis for 800 points. If console mahjong solitaire is your thing, here's an option.

WiiWare sees a port of the DS's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney for 1000 points. Well, the first four episodes from it anyway. Fifth one will be released later for 100 more points. 11 bucks definitely isn't bad for a great game and if you haven't played it on the DS then here's your chance to see why everyone shouts "OBJECTION!" at random times. Also on the menu is Chronos Twins DX (1000 points), a puzzle/platformer, and ShadowPlay (800 points), a puzzle/um...puzzler.

XBox Live's Deal of the Week is the Magic: The Gathering game Duels of the Planeswalkers for 400 points. I personally say "worth it" but you might want to try out the demo first if you don't have it already.

And, finally, this week's review will be of the Virtual Console's Pilotwings, originally on the SNES and one of my favorite games back in my teen years. Will my motion-sickness turn my rose-colored glasses green? Or will it hold up to a 10-year old memory of awesomeness? Find out Friday.
