Rainbow Six Denied

Unfortunately, it seems as though Nintendo fans won't be seeing Rainbow Six: Vegas on the Wii any time soon. Despite the supposedly "leaked" release list and accidental Ubisoft site update, which displayed Wii as a supported console earlier this week, company representatives gave the following statement to IGN earlier today:

"Rainbow Six Vegas has been announced and is currently being developed for the Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 platforms, and is not in development for any other consoles at this time."

When asking whether or not an alternate Rainbow Six title was in the works for Wii, Ubisoft offered no official comment.

I can see why. I don't want the arcade feeling of FPS, TPS, or RPG's. You guys remember the arcade weapons you'd use to shoot people with on the screen. It's dumbed down, over simplified, and innaccurate. Although a Wii remote would be worse, it'd be 10+ feet away from your TV, not arcades 2 feet max.

No arcade shooters or games for me sorry, I'm taking a stance against Wii.

Rainbow Six: Vegas runs on Unreal Engine 3. I just don't think the Wii can do the engine justice. Unfortunately, this will probably the first of many graphically intensive games not being ported to the Wii...thats why companies like Ubisoft are making games like Red Steel; creating original IPs for Wii that caters to the console's strengths.

well at least we know wii has a different line up of games.

I think that Red Steel is also using the Unreal 3 engine, but your are probably right that the engine won't be fully utilized on the wii.

Well ignore this, i could swear that I saw it listed on wikipedia under games using the engine just yesterday but it isn't there today so...

Zelda Replay: Majora's Mask

VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Is Ocarina of Time as legendary as I remembered it? For the most part, yes. In spite of a handful of missteps — a few obtuse puzzles, some tedious backtracking, and a clunky stealth sequence — I don't believe the last 23 years have been unkind to it. Ocarina remains a brilliant example of the medium, a landmark game that shaped the future of its own franchise and 3D gaming in general. After more than two decades it retains its inventive dungeon design, challenging puzzles, dynamic combat, wistful storyline, unforgettable music, and empowering open-air freedom. I feel confident calling it one of the greatest games of the fifth generation, even if I'm no longer prepared to list it among the five best games ever made."

Pure unadulterated fun. They don't make them like this anymore...especially not the triple A industry.

Back when video rental was a thing, I rented out Majoria's Mask, I never finished it though. I did buy the 3DS version before the eshop shutdown, so maybe one day I'll finally play through the whole thing, it's amazing how well these games hold up though. I briefly played Ocarina of Time for a while and it was really fun.
