Are you ready to spend some Wii Points, DSi Points, or some Nintendo money? Realize that I said "Nintendo money" and not "Nintendo's Money", because we all know who's pocket it comes out of. Anyway, it's that time again. It's Thursday and Nintendo has released their downloads today. So whether you have been window shopping or waiting to see what's new, let's see what is in store. That way you can see if you want to spend those points or end up just saving them.
