One of the worst aspects of the Wii's WiiWare initiative is the total lack of a "try before you buy" option. Time was, you could download a demo for a WiiWare game before dropping the points, but Nintendo scrapped such shenanigans for no good reason. Now it's bringing them back, and there is much rejoicing.

Of course, there's a catch. The demos will only be available "for a limited time only ensuring the line-up is constantly kept refreshed to provide players with a varied and entertaining experience.”

The first demos will arrive this Friday for Furry Legends, Jett Rocket, ThruSpace and Zombie Panic in Wonderland. Never again will you have to feel like you're gambling. At least, until Nintendo decides to arbitrarily pull the feature again.
