Hello IG fanboys and fangirls.
As you may know, and as I may have reminded you, Wiiware is officially ending on March 26th. That’s the last day that you can add points to buy games, with the ability to redownload games going away in January. This digital download service encompasses hundreds of games, many of which will never see the light of day after Wiiware goes down. As of the time of writing, there will be games by Sega, Namco, Square Enix, Hudson Soft, Konami, and even Nintendo themselves that are likely to not be seen again. We are dedicating a marathon of Wiiware's greatest hits to its final week. Previously, we have done not one, but two volumes in our The End Of Wiiware series, with a third one ready to hit very soon.
From March 19th through March 26th, we will be posting an article about Wiiware every day. This will not only include new articles from "The End Of Wiiware", but other surprises. The grand finale will occur on March 26th with a list of our picks for the top 10 greatest Wiiware titles. If you, the readers, demand it enough, we'll release a readers choice of the Top 10 Wiiware titles.
To make your voices heard, please, comment here, on our Facebook, or on Twitter to tell us what YOU think are the greatest games to hit Wiiware. We'll go through our comments and order them based on popularity.
Grab a drink, Lean in your chair, And together, Let's watch the end of Wiiware
