Sucks of Wii players
Its the main problem with Wii not being a primarily online console. We live in an age of rushed games with next to no testing as developers think "oh we can fix bugs later". It's all down to high developing costs though thanks to most games being multi-platform too. Multi-platform games means more time to develop = higher initial costs. I mean sure they make a lot more afterwards but they try cut down that cost as much as they can.
I agree with you, but we have to admit that the wii online infrastructure is a joke.
i agree snake, 12 digit friend codes FTL.
bahaahaha Nintendo really... You FAIL. Also, why doesn't my games like New Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong Country Returns have no online co-op MP? Great games that would have been even better because of this. WHY?
Why can't you just play the game in your lounge with your offline friends like they show in the adverts?
The Wii is so far behind its crazy that it sells so well. Granted a lot of grandparents and non serious gamers may not need blu ray or xbox live how could they be satisfied with this!? you can't even get a patch lol
Lawsuit against Harmonix and Activision eat Kotick wallet would be cool....
....Rock Band has NOTHING to do with Activision. -_-
Who in their right mind would buy this game on the Wii anyway.
Score one for Harmonix, Nintendo zero. I can understand pressure to release with certain features limited but the word bug implies a feature that is supposed to work one way and is actually broken or performs a unexpected reaction. There should never be bugs in a production release that were known. Something are inevitably found in all products but should have the ability to fix. The best way to get these fixed would be to release the patches with an expansion disc like they have done in the past. Personally the only weird issue I have seen was with the quick play, select songs. Whenever I first enter the song list it does not show that I have played any but after I play one song all my previous scores show up. It isn't a bug in my mind but definitely annoying. Granted I have the Xbox versions so they can patch mine when they want!
Err guys, Activision have nothing to do with Harmonix or Rockband. Harmonix/MTV - Rockband Activision/Several other developers - Guitar Hero/Band Hero/DJ Hero
retards, can't even make game without bugs.. :) oh well, still I am not playing games like this :)
I don't understand how anyone could be blaming Nintendo for this. Blame the publisher who pushed out a buggy game! Wise up. This happens far too often. +1 to the Wii for exposing shitty publishers. (Note I say publisher and not developer. It's hardly ever the devs who are imposing the deadlines.)
ummmnnn.......maybe...just maybe...hint hint....they can blame Nintendo because they re released the gamecube in a shiny new dress? Ten YEAR old technology is TEN year old technology.
By that comment, then the developers should have the know how to develope a game that works almost flawlessly. Come one even after ten years, they still can not make a game that works right, assuming that this is indeed the gamecube in a fancy new dress.
yeah i hear nintendo stilll make consoles with plastics lol, they should be using NANOCRYSTALS
