It Must Be a Mad Mad World

It is fairly obvious that Madworld is going to be an ultra-violent, ultra-bloody game. Nobody was ever trying to hide this; in fact it is one of its major selling points. Yet, when preview screens hit the net, even with their expectations, some people were a bit taken aback at just how intense this game really is. Madworld is not a game that looks to pull any punches, literally.

I don't mean to come off as the anti-Nintendo type, but this game really seems like it's being wasted on the Wii.

Isaac3729d ago

If it looks so good on Wii, it would look a lot better on truly next-gen consoles.

Skerj3729d ago

Nah, everyone complains that the Wii is a kid's and casual machine. The system needs all the hardcore titles it can get, I hope it stays on it for just that reason. Hopefully it'll prompt more developers to try the same. Also don't worry the PS3 and 360 are getting Bayonetta from the same team.

Megaton3729d ago (Edited 3729d ago )

I agree that the Wii needs more hardcore titles, but these super gore games sell terribly on the console as it is. They should at least make it multiplat with the PS2 if they don't want to bankroll an expensive "next-gen" version.

ChrisGTR13729d ago

true , thedevelopers of this game must be on crack or something. wii owners dont want this type of game. look at manhunt. it floped on the wii, this game will sell even less as its a new ip. dont these guys ever learn? this game needs to come out on 360/ps3. but honestly it dosent even look like its worth getting. just release this on ps2.

ChickeyCantor3729d ago

" wii owners dont want this type of game "

ChrisGTR13729d ago

boom blox was a complete flop with only 60k sales in the first month... for being one of the only wii game with 90s thats a pretty huge flop.

ChickeyCantor3729d ago

So..Bloomblox and Madworld are the same type of game....and Wii owners didnt care for boomblox so they will ignore this game too?

Like 9's matter, the people you are talking about are either people who dont reviews or so called "core" gamers who say Wii games dont sell...

Megaton3729d ago (Edited 3729d ago )

Are you really going to argue that these titles are received well on the Wii? After No More Heroes and Manhunt 2 tanking in sales, you're going to argue that another ultra violent game has anything better than a snowball's chance in hell of being successful? The Wii's best sellers are the garbage bin shovelware titles like Carnival Games. Not even the spectacular Super Mario Galaxy was received very well, considering the amount of people who actually own the Wii.

After manning up and actually sitting through your entire post, I'd be shocked and amazed if you turned out to be older than 10, let alone 20.

"The Wii's best sellers are the garbage bin shovelware titles like Carnival Games."

Please do some research.

Megaton3729d ago

Yeah okay, I take that back after looking it up. Wii Sports and Wii Play are the top 2, being far beyond 3rd place which is Super Mario Galaxy.

cooke153728d ago

not every game for a mature audience needs to be in highdef. this game is going to be about HOW you kill not what the kill looks like after tapping a few buttons.

Oh the benefits of owning all three consoles and not favoring one over the others...

MrWeymes3729d ago

I own all three consoles, and this game looks rather fun. The ESRB should have a good time with it.

CaptainHowdy3729d ago

i won't get a wii til they make it in black to match my elite and ps3....wat happened to the yellow, pink, green apple and all the other crazy colors we were promised?

Megaton3729d ago

I've owned nearly every console made since the NES, and I'm sure one day I'll get a Wii as well. The problem for me right now is that I can't justify the purchase. It has absolutely nothing that I want, aside from this game and a couple of their first party titles like Galaxy.

MrWeymes3729d ago

What about No More Heroes, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles. I said the same thing about the Wii you are for the longest time, but now that I have one in my household, I'm noticing it has quite a few games I would like to play.

Megaton3729d ago (Edited 3729d ago )

Zelda:TP and Mario Kart would be the only other first party titles I'd be interested in (SSB has never really done it for me), but I haven't heard many positive things about Mario Kart, and I could just buy Zelda:TP for my GameCube. No More Heroes would get a rent, and my faith in the Resident Evil series has severely diminished in recent years, except for 4 (already own for PS2) and the upcoming 5.

Just doesn't add up to that much when I put it out there like that.

ChickeyCantor3729d ago

"" but I haven't heard many positive things about Mario Kart, "....
it gets lots of 8's and is that a bad thing?

Also Zelda on the Wii....i really didnt wanna go back to normal zelda controll scheme.
All im hoping for is that the next link will be left handed again.

And a Home for all its games. And a price drop and twice the supplies. God I hate Nintendo for making the Wii so damned underfeatured and overpriced. This game would be so much better on other consoles if only for the features.

Durffen3729d ago (Edited 3729d ago )

I agree Nintendo should have put some more features in there console, but that's the point of owning different consoles is because of the diversity.

It seems no one can be happy. If Wii gets a Mature game, they complain that it should be on 360 or PS3.

But when it doesn't get good games, people laugh at the Wii and call it a joke and trash it for not getting good games.

People please, make up your mind.

ChickeyCantor3729d ago (Edited 3729d ago )

Wii has Firmware patches/updates, its not like there arent going to be new features.
If Sony didnt had them they wouldnt be having home at all.

Axelay3729d ago

This game would be better on the other consoles, the wii ruins it, the audience that bought the wii don't want this kind of games, the wii doesn't have games so it should not have this game, developpers can't make good game on wii, this kind of game don't sell on wii, pfffffff.
Don't you guys tired of telling the same thing over and over ?
I'm kind of happy to see this game on wii, not because it's original (it isn't), but because the style is great.
This game show you that you can make your game look great without a lot of power.

Voiceofreason3729d ago

Just say you hate Nintendo. You dont have any valid reasons even though you post on every Nintendo article. Fanboy haters like you really should be banned. All you do is troll.

Isaac3728d ago

I just hate the Wii because it is garbage unlike the DS.

nintendojunkie283727d ago

If you hate the wii so much..then why are you constantly on the wii section of n4g?...I swear 90% of your comments are on wii topics,you clearly just want to bash nintendo at any chance you get...which in turn absolutely reeks of fanboyism.

No wonder my wii has been sitting there collecting dust for the past year now.

MK_Red3729d ago

Mad World and Bayonetta are gonna PWN!
This is the game that I'm finally getting a Wii for along with de Blob and Boom Blox. (Honorable mention: Z&W)

cooke153728d ago

honestly Zack and Wiki is awsome.. who knows maybe spyborgs will be good too. Capcom has a great track record.
