Dave Perry, the developer supreme behind such titles as Enter The Matrix And Earthworm Jim, likes both PS3 and Xbox 360 a lot. When it comes to Wii, on the other hand...not so much.
i hate to be harsh but i just don't like the Wii. nothing it does is appealing to me. and i vowed to never play another Mario game again. i played Mario so much, i think i burned out.
everyone i know that has a Wii loved it for a month and haven't played it since. it's fun for about a week. i think when it drops to about $100-$75 i'll get one. but till then.........ps3/360 it is
I rarely play with it unless someone else is there to watch to play with it too.
Seriously, it's great for parties, 4 controllers and some wii-sports but it's not something you can really play by yourself, as it stands I use it to play my gamecube games.
that first sentence made me feel dirty. :<
all joking aside, you say you like to play with your wii during a party?
Argh Shut Up. You say basically the same thing that every wii hater says. How many times have we heard "i have friends who own the wii and they havent even played it for X months" ?
1. You don't have friends. Don't lie.
2. If you're gonna spout bull, at least be original.
the biggest albatross for Nintendo games, is Nintendo games. When that ship leaves harbor.....well we know what happens next.....all of us have owned Nintendo consoles in the past...and all of us know where they are now - if we're honest.
Nintendo caught a lot of people off guard with a left hook, nifty controller, and low pricepoint this round, and they are reaping those early benefits, but all good things come to an end, and therein sets the inevitable reality.
1 maybe 1.5 years max this will continue. I'm still playing SSBB on my friends Wii when it comes, but there's no need for me to go buy one - it's not like I'll play it when there's no one around.
1 game- TP- has pretty much propelled its sales all year round. By the end of '07 the thing will be loaded with new titles, and combined with the pricepoint that will mean that the Wii is an even more attractive deal.
Plus, Nintendo still has a lot of games coming I'm sure. There are a ton of old franchises they haven't tapped into yet. I expect that Nintendo will do something with them this gen instead of leaving the Wii gameless for 2-3 years.
shiny fell off after earthworm jim for the genesis.
Wow! Enter the Matrix? Absolute movie license sh1te.
a game developer and its his opinion, he's entitled to preferences without someone bashing him because of what games he's made in the past.
Perry is an awesome guy but I read an article a while ago where he bashed both the ps3 and 360 because they focused more on graphical power more than game play much like the wii.....maybe he realized that a controller gimmick can only last so long when you have basically 7 year old hardware to work with......
Another reason for me to love Dave Perry. I love his classics (Earthworm Jim, Wild 9, Messiah) and his comments. Good find.
The guy spends more time playing games then actually making them. Enter the matrix sucked....hard btw.
Damn, I actually liked Enter the Matrix lol. Reviewers didn't give it really crap scores (Well IGN gave it a 7.2 which is decent) Or is because it didn't get a a 9 or something?
Another reason why I don't take reviewers opinions as gospel.
...but Shiny are best remembered for the fantastic Earthworm Jim series, which came out thirteen years ago. It was funny and witty and innovative.
Enter the Matrix was a truly terrible game, selling on the hype that it had video clips from The Matrix Reloaded, which was still to be released in cinemas. Path of Neo was a step up, but still run of the mill. "developer supreme"? Not in this decade.
As for people putting down their Wiimote, I havn't stopped playing my Wii since I bought it in April. Heatseaker is a solid flight game but was made more fun and thrilling because of the motion controls. Excite Truck rocks. Zelda was amazing. Mario Strikers Charged, while not a realistic football sim, is bloody challenging. I also have Wii Sports and Wario Ware for drunken nights in. And as for future releases, there is at least one great title a month up until and beyond christmas - Super Paper Mario next week, Metroid in October, Mario Galaxy in November, Res Evil: UE in December, not to mention Smash Brothers Brawl, Final Fantasy, and Harvest Moon.
So no, I don't think I'll be retiring my Wiimote for quite some time.
LOL, sorry, but Dave's comments are waaay out there. I know people, myself included, who are/have traded their X360 in against a Wii. Why? Because the games are fun, and also because wii games are not a rip off. Why on earth would I buy a FPS handicapped game for the X360 when it costs so much more than the same game for my PC, and it runs better on the PC, and also has AA?
Where Dave really loses the plot though, is in this quote
"My point is the games I personally like to play--Assassin's Creed and Killzone 2--I have a list full of them and none of them are on the Wii."
Uhm dude, none of those are on the PS3/X360 yet either! That is lame, comparing games that are not even out yet, with a console that already has games that are actually fun to play, and innovative, already in the stores, and outselling both next gen consoles by huge margins!
I thought this guy was meant to know his stuff? I'm sure the fact he has access to unreleased games is a HUGE comfort to all you X360 and PS3 fans still wondering when they will eventually see a REAL next gen game arrive.
Why is this news? This idiot has always made bad comments about Nintendo and he keeps doing it over and over again and its posted here on n4g.
in how people diss the Wii.
Once upon a time, people said it was underpowered and had gimmicky controls.
Then they saw Super Mario Galaxy's graphics.
And then they saw Metroid Prime 3's controls.
So now, all people say is "I don't like the Wii."
"once upon a time" , now, and even more in few months.
It's dumb for one to admit they hate a console. Like nintendo killed their families or something. So people cant rant about the controls or the graphics, now it's just.."I hate the wii" with no explanation as to why they hate it. There not fanboys anymore, more like brain washed kids.
Well, I'll still be waiting for something new from the 360 and PS3. So far, nothing I think I'll be interested in has been annouced that is also new (I'll give credit to Little Big Planet, but I don't think it will be that interesting to me),so I'm wondering when we'll see something new.
Shooter...shooter....shooter. ..oh, there's a racing game! RPG....shooter...racing....sho oter...
I think Perry needs to tell us what he considers new, because if he has super secret access to games, and he enjoys Killzone 2 over these mysterious "new" ideas he talks about, why does he think anyone would drop their Wii controllers for new ideas that he doesn't like?
I'll bet he thinks Halo 3 is "new."
Hahahahaha who the f cares about shiny? Enter the Matrix? Im sure that was a good game. Even Path of Neo kinda sucks.
Who gives a [email protected][email protected][email protected]
u're talking graphics, tell me which 360 games have better graphics than heavenly sword or lair, I wonder!!!!!! PS3 is just a BEAST, PS3 proved it.
You know, it is close to the 15th. Which is probably payday for most Microsoft employees. Guess they have to meet their troll quota for the month.
