I'll admit it: Pickings often seem rather slim when it comes to updates to the Wii Shop Channel. This week, a mere two titles people are unsure of trickled onto the service, just as in weeks prior.
But, it's really not as bad as it seems, or at least, as bad as it could be. Take a look at Korea, for example. Siliconera did, and let me tell you, it ain't pretty. The Korean Virtual Console needs updates like so many supermodels need sandwiches.

Another Monday, another selection of new Virtual Console titles. Well, if you can call two a selection, anyway.
TurboGrafx16 continues receiving the love it never got when it was actually in stores as the E-rated Psychosis arrives for 1 player and 600 Wii Points. A side-scrolling shooter taking place in a world created from the mind of a twisted demon, your soul has found its way into this evil place and the only way out? Shooting. Lots and lots of shooting. Five stages and a variety of weapon options are your only hope for survival.
On the lighter but more expensive side of things comes Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. 1,000 Wii Points gets you up to four players worth of E-rated action in Kirby's first 3D adventure. Kirby fights his way through six worlds with a variety of enemies and bosses to find the 100 pieces of a powerful crystal shattered by Dark Matter. And this time, Kirby can combine powers he acquires to gain even more abilities. Three multiplayer minigames round out the package here. Read More
