Hope they get a fix for it.

Ok people, try not using your wii on the backyard. Keep it indoor.

Now I can't play my Wii at the beach!

Balance6343d ago

yeah but someone who has alot of windows in their living room with alot of natural light might be hosed. not that i am getting a wii because i am older than 12 but if i could only play it at night because my 2 story windows in my living room let in too much light for it, i would be pissed.

Sphinx6343d ago

my game room has a few windows, but they have thick curtains that I close for TV viewing and playing my 360.

Hey man...I'm 16 years old and i am definetely getting the Nintendo Wii. I even know someone in my family who is 25 years old and they are getting the system too! I'll be waiting in line!! :D:D

zypher6343d ago

i guess it would suck. fortuantely for me, my only interest in the Wii is for a few N64 and Gamecube games, and a bunch of NES and SNES games...not for the Wiimote.

BIadestarX6343d ago

Same here. This does not affect me.

REmake vs. Resident Evil 2: Which Remake Template is Better?

REmake kept the original style adding new flavour and graphics, Resident Evil 2 is a complete modernisation. Which remake style is superior?

TheBrainZ1d 15h ago

The GameCube remake was stunning for its time but the new modernisation efforts are breathing some much-needed life into the older games.

I loved the GC remake back in 2000-whatever. But I tried replaying it recently and just couldn't deal with the door loading sequences.

Have I been spoilt by modern games? Probably.

tank controls just don't work in this day and age.

Babadook71d ago

I think Tomb Raider still works but RE I'm not sure.

Neonridr15h ago

@Babadook7 - imagine an updated Resident Evil or Tomb Raider with tank controls? you can't walk and turn at the same time. It would be ridiculous to play.

Both are fantastic but the old style controls and the half way house attempt to modernize them in remake both feel extremely dated now. Taking away your preference for the various settings and characters, the recent remakes are objectively better games.

I think anyone voting for REmake is simply doing it out of nostalgia. No way a new young gamer is going to pick that over the new ones. I couldn't even get my son to play the game for more than an hour.

Nope. REmake has a totally different vibe, feel and tension that the newer remakes can't replicate due to the camera angle. Yes the original fixed camera was used for technical reason but at the same time, they created a feeling of dread not knowing what was around the corner. You simply don't get that with a third person camera as great as the third person RE games are.

Depends what sort of experience you're looking for. If you enjoy the old fixed camera OG style then REmake is to me the pinnacle of the form. Incredible atmosphere, visual style and a fantastic revision of Resident Evil 1 with additions that feel completely seamless. Resident Evil 2 Remake in an excellent update (especially running with the IMO vastly superior original RE2 soundtrack) with the benefits of modern design but I still prefer the original game.. it didn't "overwrite" that experience in my mind the way REmake felt like it became the definitive RE1 experience.


Nintendo on the difficulty of transitioning between hardware.

During Nintendo’s investor Q&A, a question came up about the risks Nintendo faces when transitioning from one platform to another, as well as the competition they face

“Since we have often experienced hardship in the past following a good-selling platform, we never automatically assume that our current position is solidified. Furthermore, as you mentioned, our business is constantly subject to fierce competition.”

This couldn’t be more true and proper way of looking at things. Really hoping they knock it out of the park with Switch 2.

We all know that Switch 2 won’t be the most powerful handheld on the planet. Nintendo know that having the most powerful hardware isn’t the main selling component as it’s all about the games. Switch sales prove that.
