A brand new Wii-exclusive FPS developed by High Voltage Software. First screens and tech demo.
It should be on PC/PS3/360. Hardcore FPS are for the gamer that's on the cutting edge of technology - this won't sell on the Wii.
This game would just get swallowed up on the other systems. The Wii really needs this game. Besides, the control scheme will really help it out. I think it will be a lot of fun on the Wii.
Hearing about some new awesome FPS for 360 is just so typical. And everyone rags on the Wii for not having a good selection of hardcore games. But when Wii finally gets a hardcore game, people instantly start saying it should be on PC/360/PS3. What is wrong with you people?
I dunno, I don't have a Wii, but I think it might be a welcome change. They just have to get the controls right.
LOL, that's honestly stupid to put more FPS games on the other systems...They're already filled with them...I already have a computer for my FPS habits.
I think what he's really trying to say is that this game has to be good in order to sell well on the Wii because Wii owners aren't as obsessed w/ the FPS genre, so mediocre FPSs won't sell nearly as well as they have on other platforms. Right? =)
lol, I guess...maybe he should be more articulate about the point...I can understand it now.
That's just my interpretation of yet another one of bootsielon's habitual anti-Nintendo comments lol
...i bow down to thee holyness of I-Will-Say-What-ART-A-Fact.... .
...im on it boot im getting the red walker =D
bootsielon. As much as I love all three systems, gameplay for a FPS is best on Wii and that's coming from an honest, unbiased opinion. The Wiimote works flawlessly for FPS games. I can't wait for more shooters on the Wii.
I'm sorry but that's a load of Bull. FPSs on the Wii is manageable but not "uber" at all. Good for the wii to start getting these games but let's not BS oursleves here.
This may likely head to the PS2 soon afterwards to help with sales.
The game does look very very good with the little we've seen though and I'll be keeing my eye on this one.
The guy below me, Sorry dude, yes I have and I'm not going to BS myself that it was an uber experience. In fact, there's no way I'd turn in a control pad or k/m for a wii-mote for my FPSs, sorry but no.
You haven't played any FPS on Wii, have you? Trust me, I'm not alone when I say it's better.
i have, and its not good, except for metroid. BTW: Im not hating on the wii, but I believe that any wii owner would agree with me that its pretty mediocre playing a FPS on the wii, not because of its graphics (in fact for a console that pulled out pretty graphics on a console that utilizes last gen graphics on Metroid, its pretty nice) but because of the controls, it feels awkward, sometimes they don't respond well to the accelerometers in the wii mote, becoming its downfall. example, Metal of Honor, Red steel, etc.
LOL @ Redsteel
Red steel still gives me nightmares.
lol REDsteel is a waste of money and a disc like 90 percent of third party games for the WII
The FPS controls for Red Steel worked fine as intended. The motion sensing had some getting use to but for a FPS it controlled better than any 360 or PS3 game. Moh2 Heroes also controls better than anything offered on 360 or PS3. Now it isnt as good as mouse keyboard but anyone who cant see how superior FPS are on Wii either just hasnt played one or is a fanboy in denial. on 360 PS3 you have to move the analog stick just right while on Wii is as easy as point and shoot. IF point and shoot is really hard for you maybe its time to give up gaming and start training for the Special Olympics
i own a ps3 so i wouldnt want this game we already have enough shooters as it is, but this is great news for wii owners maybe they'll finally get an online fps like metroid should've been
Wii already has one an online shooter..
Its nice to see some devs take the time and make a new IP for the Wii let alone a new engine to work for the Wii. So I hope this game sells well so that the Wii gets more hard core games on the system in the future over just mini games. So I for one have this on my radar.
Might actually get a good 3rd party game.
I'm with Durffen, it's all about spitting on the idea of "ANOTHER FPS on 360 etc... great"...before even knowing anything about the game. Okay. But then when it comes to the Wii, it's "the wrong platform". Which is it?
I think this is only good news. The other systems are getting loads more new FPS's, and probably another dev decided to do a new IP just while I was typing this.
I personally can say that I am looking forward to this on the Wii very much. I own all 3 of the current gen consoles and am not a fanboy in anyway haha, but I can honestly say that a shooter skipped on the 360 or ps3 wont be missed that much. Brawl is getting a little boring on the wii as of now so this game looks like it will be a great addition to my Wii library =)
Dunno why you all hate on the Wiimote, it has accuracy of a mouse but also gives you a 3D stick for moving which is the best combo in my mind. Also I can't see this going onto the ps2.....if it's a Wii exclusive it'll use most of it's power which is more than 2x the ps2 so it'd be impossible. The Wii needs more FPS games anyways, the 360 needs less and the ps3 needs those exclusives faster. *patiently awaits for disagrees*
cant wait developers need to see that mature software sells on the wii.. look at resident evil, metroid.
Is this really how FPS starved we Nintendoboys are? That every time a mediocre looking title comes around, we begin clapping our fins and dancing around?
GIVE ME A FISH!!! GIVE ME A FIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSHHHH!!!!!
no we are like, good coz we got nothing else to play to feed our fps cravings
Well it's great to finally see a 3rd party actually make a new engine for the Wii. I mean really when has that happened? Also for those who say fps are junk on the Wii lol you are in denial. Yes I said denail because the Wii Remote plus nunchuck are awesome for fps and make me question why I though dual analog was great. Seriously the play style is amazing and gets you into a game more so.
It looks pretty good from that tech demo I wouldn't say Wii owners are asking for a fish but it's a shooter non the less and I still don't understand why boot even goes into the Wii section :(
He has no friends. Unfortunately. He proves his own existence by pissing off people who are easily angered. :D
I see. Well I suppose I can live with that ^.-
I actually think it's funny that bootsielon has a condescending anti-Nintendo side to him, which is such a stark contrast to how he presents himself in the PS3 section where he makes decent comments and responses followed by a not-so-subtle suggestion to trade bubbles LMAO
...Im checking for an update about Wii-mote software for the PC everyday , People already managed to make the IR functionality work.
but for now it only works on the desktop.
Never been a fan of FPS, but after playing Metroid prime 3 my opinion changed.
So if they can make this one " GOOD " then i think i will stay away from the PC-software XD
but did anyone see how beautiful that tech demo looked? Imagine a full game. Wii may not be powerful, but, it took some really intelligent developers to pump graphical effects like that (water Reflects, Bump mapping, and shaders, Which many thought the Wii wasn't even capable of begin with). This is a good tech demo for The wii to encourage them to put out better looking games. (Hell, Twilight Princess is still one of the best looking games on wii and it only pushed gamecube). But, even better for Developers, This is a serious technical accomplishment with all the effects they did, and held a decent framerate from what the video showed.
This game looks great. Just goes to show what a little normal mapping applied in the right areas can do to a lower poly game. So much for those claims that the Wii couldn't do normal mapping. I can't understand how people think this game could be ported to the PS2 to "boost sales". That's saying a lot, 'cause the PS2 can not pull off this level of graphics. And since this is super early stuff, the level of quality can only go up...
If its anything like Half Life ill take it.. hey didnt Valve say they were interested in working on Wii?
