One of Cartoon Network’s most popular animated series is Regular Show, and it’s all about a rag-tag group of characters who work at a city park where crazy stuff happens on a regular basis.

One of Nintendo’s most popular sports titles on the Wii was Wii Sports. So when the Wii U first came out, naturally Nintendo had a Wii Sports title for that, too. But they released it a little differently. Shortly after the launch of the Wii U, you could download and play games on Wii Sports Club. You could pay for each sport separately or pay to play by the hour. But now Nintendo has just released a disc copy of Wii Sports Club with little to no fanfare, so I thought I’d write about it a bit in this blog.
