    I recommend to any aussies:

    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - My Life as a King: Great sim style game, just think of it as Harvest Moon, only swapping the farm out for a city. Eases you into it, and has a lot of depth, and will probably take you between 10-15 hours on normal if you go at a basic pace (that is just finishing it, wont include beating everything else) and another 30+ hours if you do it on Very Hard.

    Lost Winds: Very high quality 2d platformer with 3d graphics. Great use of the wiimote, fantastic graphics and gameplay overall. Only about 3-5 hours long, but it's worth a second play through, and it's just one of those games that is good to have in your collection.

    Dr Mario: Updated from the NES classic, still a great game, with some good features including online multiplayer, great value for its price, and a good puzzle game always gives you plenty of value.

    It is the big square that says wiiware on the main menu of the shop channel.

    Either you are blind or you havn't got the wiiware update issued ages ago.

    Do we know whether all the hacks continue to work if WiiWare channel is installed, does it include latest IOS?

    Don't want to break custom Guitar Hero I & II nor Mario Kart.
