    So not a ripoff of any popular franchise then.

    Looks that way, it uses the same gaming engine. I pity the people that have actually bought these games.

    Similar. I think several of them were on PS2 in the UK a year or two ago. IIRC this apparently was going to be called "Barry Hatter" until the last bit of development back then... Correct me if I'm mistaken, please. Being not in Europe I don't check PAL gaming news online much.

    it's not Nintendo's fault that some developer decides to flood the Wii with a dozen of crappy games

    with releases like Metroid Prime 3, and SMG coming soon, the Wii has clearly overcome its low point

    Yes it is Nintendo's fault. [​IMG] Remember, Nintendo license games to be released, if they don't license it, the game can't be released! So, yeah...

    I sure hope we figure out how to get actual Wii homebrew working. There are some obvious good ideas what it could do, such as read MP3s off a disc or SD card. A simple audio CD playing app too (even PS1 and Saturn had that).

    I have had a wii since launch, I have tried almost every game thanx to cyclowiz and maybe 2-3 I would buy. The wii imo is crap for a real gamer, it's more for family and friends night once a month. I can't stand the damn nun chuck thingy or FPS on wii, I like a normal controller like 360 or PS3. And I am sorry to you all who say it's the gameplay that matters who cares about graphics and that almost every wii game looks like crap. I for one love my games to play and look great to me all game should be minimum 720p it's 2007 for cryin out loud. I am sick of wii games that look yes here it comes WORSE then gamecube games on the most part. And the best games like zelda and Resident evil 4 are not even wii games they are gamecube games ported over with new controller gimme a break. At least mario galaxy looks good other then that after I beat that I guess the wii collects dust again. Hell I get pisses that I waste a disk on some of this crap, I feel sorry for thoes who buy it ohhhh ya anubis II $49.99 sweeet hook me up lmao.

    You must've missed the GBA and DS to a lesser extent. Unlike NES, most of their real crap is approved by Nintendo.

    While they're still publishing some great traditional games like Mario Kart DS and Advance Wars... The third-party overall quality has been abysmal recently. Check out just about anything published by DSI. [​IMG]

    Notice how most pro-DS trolls who ridicule the PSP library never mention any particular game or significant downside? Even the anti-PS3 crowd at least has shown legitimate ammo such as it's price structure, and reviews of specific games that were hyped as awesome.

    Conspiracy Entertainment is handling the US version of this, Ninjabread, etc? I remember several years back they did a few ChoroQ games over here. That license jumped around outside Japan.

    I think I'll take a dump on a plate and send it to Nintendo. I don't think they'll have a problem licensing it as an official Wii game.

    As long as you tack on some crappy motion controls it should be a top 10 hit [​IMG]

    They're keeping this crap coming because wii is the cheapest platform to make games out of the three new ones. : D Easy way to make some pocketmoney.
