North America - This week's digital downloads and screens (Jan. 31st)

Nintendo eShop on Wii U
Puddle – Winner at the Independent Games Festival 2010, Puddle is a game that finds players guiding a puddle of fluid through 49 challenging and diverse levels by tilting the environment left or right. Players must also take into account friction, gravity and temperature, and use various types of liquids to navigate the unique environments that include burning passageways, carnivorous plants and electric currents.

The Cave – Demo Version – The Cave is a new adventure game from Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert and Double Fine Productions, the award-winning studio behind Psychonauts and Brütal Legend. Assemble your team of three from seven unlikely adventurers, each with his or her own unique personality and story. Descend into mysterious depths to explore many different locations, including a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready-to-launch nuclear-tipped ICBM. The Cave awaits.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS
Fire Emblem Awakening – Lead an army of knights, mages, archers and other classes into battle to defend a fantasy world teetering on the brink of war. Your army, which grows as the game's epic story progresses, is composed of a brave group of memorable characters with unique abilities. Just plan your attacks carefully – the lives of your soldiers and the future of the world depend on it. Fire Emblem Awakening launches exclusively on Nintendo 3DS on Feb. 4.

Ikachan – You wake up in an underwater cave at the bottom of an enormous abyss, and there's only one way out. Avoid dangerous obstacles and deadly earthquakes as you search for a way out before it's too late. Use whatever tools you can find in the vast undersea kingdom to escape.

Too bad I bet Ice Climber is $5. I'd buy it if it was $1, simply because it's not that good, but I still like the game, hahaha.

Nothing for me on the download front, but I am interested in Witch's Cat/Bloody Vampire. Both are from the Rabi x Laby guys.

Metal Slug 4?

1) Buy Metal Slug Collection instead.
2) I thought Wii's Virtual Console service was ending soon...and it still didn't even get through NeoGeo's Metal Slug series. You can't rely on the Virtual Console. They've spread their offerings too thin across the Wii's lifetime.

They really need to fire whoever had the bright idea to stop including each game's price in these weekly PR updates.

I'm a little interested in Puddle, but I don't want to have to load up the Wii U just to check its price on the eShop.

I might bite for Ikachan, that's about though. But as per usual, I'm not going to complain, I don't need to be spending money :P.

I hope Runner2 and Two Brothers release soon! Also, should I get Puddle? Is it better or worse than Fluidity?
