Two minutes of The Grudge Wii is right proper creepy

Have you kept track of how many Wii games feature minimal combat and maximal flashlight? By my count, there are seven: LIT, Fragile, Fatal Frame 4, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, The Calling, and Ju-On: The Grudge. That doesn’t even count games like Spyborgs and Super Paper Mario that make use of flashlight stuff for less-than-spooky purposes. Makes you wonder if “flashlight!” will someday replace “waggle!” as the standard anti-Wii propaganda battle-cry.

OK, back to the news; turn off the lights and set that youtube to fullscreen, then tell me if this video doesn’t give you the gibblies. Honestly, I started to have doubts about Ju-On: The Grudge ever since XSEED started pushing the whole “haunted house simulator” thing. After watching this video, I’m back to wanting this game 100%.

Ju-On: The Grudge comes out in just a few days, so pre-order this sucker now if you’re at all interested. This isn’t the type of game that Gamestops and Best Buys tend to stock up on.
