I hope more people pick up Okamiden...

The same goes for the resident evil chronicle games... Come on, dont treat us like idiots. at least do a re-make of a classic resident evil game (like gamecube resident evil 1.) If you make decent games, people will buy them, as monster hunter tri proves.

Valay2938d ago

I see what you're saying, but I can't fault Capcom for porting Okami to the Wii. After all, it's one of my favorite games now. Plus, if I'm remembering correctly, a lot of people were clamoring for Capcom to bring it to the Wii because they thought the controller would work well with it.

pcz2938d ago (Edited 2938d ago )

I think Okami would have had more immediate success (and respect) on the Wii if they had made a sequel or Wii specific Okami.

I certainly would have bought it on release, but seeing as its a port i just think ''it can wait, its nothing new.''

I have heard its a great game though.

Its like the Resident Evil archive games they keep releasing. Its a bit insulting to me. Ok, they are good games but they shouldn't complain or be surprised if they don't sell.

you've never played the game and your complaining to Capcom?
dude. stop complaining and buy the game now.
it's friggin spectacular.

I don't have a wii but I have it on PS2.
I'd totally get it if I had a wii.

and I personally believe that the drawing controls would work
perfectly with the wii.

the low sales for okami in 2006 marked something for me "the death of creativity and unique games and the rise of the repetitive and shooters/fps games" miss the good old days ;)

Quadrix2938d ago

Indeed. The gaming industry is dieing.

asdr3wsfas2938d ago

I like unique games as well and own plenty but Okami is not my style. A game where the first hour has almost no actual playing? The art was cool but I don't care to watch 15 minutes of story before playing a game I bought. Here's a review of the first hour that exactly summarizes what I felt:

"Maybe if I would have actually been able to play the game, this score would have been higher, but half an hour of tapping X doesn't really lend to a great gameplay score."

I have prepared for any contingency where you make a snide crack about my attention span and will respond in kind.

so you don't like 3d Zeldas

asdr3wsfas2937d ago (Edited 2937d ago )

Actually I don't at all ;) I like Link to the Past and original zelda. I had fun with OOT but now I can't stand them. They just kept going further and further from link to the past and the original. OOT was the last zelda I beat.

The only interest I have in new zelda is seeing if they return to the combat emphasis in the originals and implement motion plus well with it. I was a math major and I like puzzle games sometimes but zelda is not the style I enjoy anymore.

Still love link to the past though.

Oh, bob. You broke my heart, Fredo.

asdr3wsfas2937d ago

Screw you guys! I'm playing xbox!

I kid, I kid. I'm studying civil procedure =(

EvilTwin2937d ago

I kid with the Corleones all the time. ;)

Honestly, I hope you're right about a focus on combat. I liked LoZ:TP, but even I go "OK, I'm not spending another night in the Water Temple" after awhile.

who doesnt have Okami by now? Either on the PS2 or Wii

Valay2938d ago

I'm sure a lot of people don't. The game never sold amazingly.

hatchimatchi2938d ago

I rented it but i didn't care for the motion based gestures for the painting segments. I found myself repeating the same motion over and over only to have the game tell me i was doing it wrong. That's the reason i didn't buy it. I've been meaning to get it on the ps2 but at this point I don't really care anymore about playing it.

AEtherbane2937d ago

Its one of the best game i've ever played, i put it up there with shadow of colossus. its very very good.... at least on the PS2


Trust you will see low sales alright, putting monster hunter on the 360!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CAPCOM you duma$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what the hell happen to you guys.

Monster hunter did nothing for the wii, but you putting it on the xbox lol.
