Leaked article that THEY do not want us to see...

There are secret things that Destructoid keeps from you all. They opt to keep the real news, the real information supressed from you all. We surf this site mindlessly, unaware of the darker, deeper truths that are kept buried.

Destructoid is purposely withholding game reviews from you all, and it's my job to unearth this information and bring it to you. The community deserves a bit more transparency in matters such as these because decisions to not publish reviews like this affect the readership in general.

Leaked information like this makes the Gerstmann incident over on Gamespot look like an errant blip on the radar in our lives.

After many (false) promises to not leak this information, or break the code of silence on dtoid's procedures of game reviews, I present to you...

Yes, Destructoid is guilty of burying this game's release and ignoring the opportunity to review it to cover "bigger" Wii games like Smash Brothers or whatever it's called.

Here's what I was able to extract out of the encrypted emails I intercepted. Any breaks you see in text were areas of the email I was unable to decrypt. Dtoid's private emails apparently are using Hexidecimal 256 PG2P encryption, and I've had my cracking software running non-stop since last Friday to get this to you now.

"Ni-ten-o Wii"
"P--lished by Sega"

"Single Pla-er"

"Sega B-ss Fishing is a port of the original arcade/Dreamcast game which has been given minor tweaks to bring the experience to the Wii."

Original arcade game

"The original arcade port came out stateside ba-k in 1997 where it was met with wide acc-ai- for it's re---stic simulation of fishing on a pond."

"The arcade game featured a realistic fishing controller and offered feedback through the teth-red line which would actually draw itself towards the arcade cabinet to simulate a fish pulling on the line."

"In 1999, the Dreamcast was rel--sed, and some early leaks got out about Sega wanting to bring the arcade experience of Sega Bass Fishing into the home. When Sega Bass Fishing was released shortly after the launch of the Dr--mcast, Sega introduced the Fishing Controller. This controller featured a rudimentary motion sensor as well as force feedback to enhance the experience. Th--gh short on content, the game served well amongst Dreamcast owners with gorgeous graphics, a great control scheme and a being able to actually make a casting motion was the icing on the c---."

"Fast forward to now, Se-a has ported th- --m- over to the Wii. For the m-st part the game has remained largely identical to the original, keeping the similar and dated graphics of the original. This is most definitely a port folks. All the draggy slowdowns that came on the original Dreamcast version when moving across the lake surface are still present today."

"The good news is th-t for a port, it's very robust. The game fe--ures the same 20 lures and the orig-nal 4 sta--s from the original arcade game, the weather modifiers from the Dreamcast version, but has now added ad-itional s---es to the game."

"Controls are handled on the Wii with just the remote or the remote and nunchuck configurations. It's up to you to decide how much effort you want to put into an arcade sim. Select your tackle with the D-pad, use the thumbstick on the nunchuck/d-pad to choose your casting location and let 'er rip. It's identical to the Dreamcast version from that point forward. The controls are fairly decent. The actual effort put into catching a fish has remained unchanged in the game. Depen--ng on the lure you chose, you must enact a certain particular --tion with the controller while reeling in your lure. If you have the lure at the correct de--h and speed, the fish will follow."

"Once the fish is snared on the hook, you have the o-tion of simply mas-ing the B trigger to r-el it in, or you can make a reeling motion with the nunchuck. From there there's a need to fidget the remote to th- left or right, and playing with the tension of the line by reeling/not reeling. It will never be able to top the fun of pla-ing this in an arcade setting, but for wiling away a half hour, it's good f--."

"To add a level of r--lay value to the game, they have added in practice modes, tournament mode (similar to the D---mcast version), as well as leaderboards. Sadly the game only supports a single player, so those dreams of competitive angling will have to wait for a different title."

"Over all, this is a decent if an-ient port of a fun blast from the past for Dreamcast lovers. Those of you hanging onto your old Fishing Co-tr--lers and copies of Sega Bass Fishing can finally "upgr-de" to the same game on the --i. For $30, it's worthy of the investment."

So, I hope you all found this shocker to be a worthy read. I want all the people who held this information back to know that you CANNOT SUPRESS THE TRUTH!

We will not tolerate being decieved or withheld this information.

About BluDesignone of us since 11:49 AM on 11.10.2006

I own a FamPuter, which is a 100% fake Famicom. And I do own Super Mario Bros. and Rockman 2 for it, which you don't. :P

I'm a 34 year old gamer. I cannot hang out with most of you, and you should not contact me to buy you cheap wine or cigarettes. I do not like jail. Seriously, I own all three consoles and I don't discriminate. Gaming is for fun, not for sissy slapfights. If you consider yourself partial to a particular console, I don't care why you don't own other consoles, I don't want to hear about it. If you're going to bitch about something, you'd better bring some hard evidence of why you're complaining if you want to cry on my shoulder.

Enjoy this wonderful picture of 2 generations coming together at last...
