GWN just previewed Call for Heroes, an upcoming Wii game published by Strategy First, and let me tell you now - it ain't pretty. The previewer says "I still don't understand how they managed to get this game published on the Wii."
So it's only 19.99?
More and more third pary games are going to start to not take full advantage of the wiimote and thus more and more games will use the snes style controller or if the wiimote is used, it's use will be very limited, and sales will start to drop. Then the third party developers go away, and then you are left with the first party, and we all know how often zelda, mario and other nintendo games come out. And the wii will be in the same boat as the gamecube and the n64.....a failure
Stupid, stupid, stupid!
And that's what I am saying constantly.
There isn't so much to own a Wii for, if you buy it as the only console in your house. The content just isn't there. Its fun for Sports, with friends and a beer. Zelda is fine, Mario will be good. But that's about it. If you really like gaming there is no other way then to go 360 or Wii60, but a Wii alone will create a wear-out effect in no time.
That's why hardware sales won't last at this high rate so long anymore. People will start to get bored

I know dude, I know. The question is though: are these people happy with what they bought, is there a wear-out effect, what will they tell others about the product?
They bought it for the new controller. And after that they are dissapointed in the games. Like we read here again. How long can the hype stay alive if there is nothing to fuel it???
The only thing that keeps it selling is the low price now, but as soon as the 360 core gets on 199 Euro, the Vision cam picks up on motion sensing by body control big time, who still wants the Wii???
At lot of people (including you ?, I can't check all your comments you have too many) said that, that the wii was a gimmick and it would only last a short time.
So back at launch they said give it a month and it will start collecting dust on the shelves.
Then it was give it two months..
Then a little bit more...
Now its mid-june, people are still making line in front of the ebgame games in hope of scoring a wii when the store receive its stocks. In a few months we'll see november/december christmas time increase the general video game demand...
Its not a first choice for hardcore gamers, but its a first choice for a lot of people (and a second/third choice for a lot of others).
I'll be looking into this game for sure!
I'm really trying to find something apealing about the Wii, but nothing's happening. Not even Zelda did it for me. I bought it for the gamecube instead.
I don't know why the XBOTS and PS3 FANS are making a big stink about this.. its WII/PC thats what the article says.. so i guess the PC will fail too because the game sux.
lets face it.. for every GREAT game there are at least 2 BAD games..
the PS2 was a major hit.. can u honestly say that EVERY SINGLE game was AMAZINGLY GOOD? i am more then certain that there were a LOT of games that were absolute crap..
i honestly doubt that this game will be a SYSTEM SELLER anyhow so meh..
The summary basically states that small-house indie devs shouldn't try to create graphic-intensive games because of their limited resources... Anyone know of an exception to this?
I was gonna get the wii, but theres really no games that appeal to me.
Now that is the worst game of this gen!
This game would be great back in 1978.
ITR said,"its only $19.99?, they should pay us $29.99 to play this
man the wii sucks
it's one game guys! I'm pretty sure every console has crappy games that no one should play.
what they are talking about. from the screenshots, it looks at least as good as the maze screensaver on my computer. play that through component hook up and watch out. =} as PS360WII said, EVERY system has garbage games on it.
unfortunately the Wii has a lot of not so good/garbage games. I got mine on the first sale day and still waiting for a good, compelling, durable game. and I don't really care about next gen, I just want to play good games...
wii sports was alright, but the only other title i was looking forward to was the sadness. i traded it for my former co-workers 20gig PS3. i figured there would be more titles in the future i would want to play on the PS3. i've never been into the smash bros and whatnot. and if i'm going to play metroid, it's going to be the nes original.
Wow, Wii is getting some really bad games from 3rd part. (From FarCry Vengence to this PSone looking game...)
