So I'm a 'hardcore' gamer (I prefer the term veteran gamer) and currently I'm stuck with a Wii as my primary
console. (I didn't buy any consoles as I was planning to move from the UK to the USA, since moving over here
I've been pretty broke).
Playing The Conduit with it's customizable controls but lame-ass graphics, story, game modes, etc etc made
me think about why I bought a Wii in the first place and assumed it was going to be awesome despite the lack
of power under the hood.
This is a no-brainer. My most played game on the Wii by far is COD: World At War. Despite the fact it is vastly
inferior to the PS3 and 360 versions, it is fun as hell to control a FPS on Wii. Although not as customizable as
The Conduit it is still fun. Multi-player maps and modes kick The Conduit's ass royally. And the story, despite
being thin and fairly standard, takes a dump on High Voltage's narrative from a great height. So, why the hell
are there not more shooters on Wii? Really. HOTD: Overkill was fun. MOH: Heroes was ok, but glitchy. That's
pretty much it. 3 years in. LAME. If there were some good exclusive FPS shooters - with decent multi-player
maps, more hardcore gamers would get a Wii as an extra console. 'Cos we all know it will never replace the
Why the flying fuck in all of flying fuckdom are there not a TON of first person slashers on the Wii by now? Ok,
so I know that the motion controls are not 1:1 so what? Are you telling me we couldn't have a fun gesture
based game with blood and decent online combat system? Really? Is that so hard? No More Heroes and
Madworld come close to not sucking and feature gesture based violence, but NMH blowed due to the crap
mini-games, generally repetitiveness. Madworld is a beat 'em up not a slasher. Meh.
SO MANY NINTEN-PROPERTIES NOT TOUCHED
Where the fuck is F-Zero on Wii? I mean really? One Zelda game? That was developed for gamecube? Really?
One mario game, that was admittedly ok. Star Fox, Kid Icarus, Wave Race. So there aren't actually that many
when you stop and think about it, so that's even less excuse surely?
The best Wii games were not developed for Wii. Res Evil 4, Okami, Zelda. How pathetic is that? And yes I
downloaded World Of Goo. Ok, it's good but it's not exactly a deep experience is it?
I pretty much hate my Wii right now. I stare at it and think about turning it on but then I go read a book instead.
If my 4 year old didn't love it so much I'd have sold it on ebay long ago. I have been a staunch, loyal Nintendo
fan since 1985 but next time they release a console I am seriously not interested. read
