    Can't believe it took me ten full minutes to see this post, I've been checking pretty obsessively all day waiting for this. Now just to wait for it to hit usenet.

    Well PS2 reviews for this game averaged ~9.0 / 10. Could be a good sign, something different for sure.

    Cheers [​IMG]

    Can't you tell? [​IMG] It looks like this one might be the Japanese one with an ESRB cert stuck on to it as a placeholder or something. Says okami in Japanese kanji too whereas the one up there is in English.

    Well to be honest I don't think there is any difference between Freeloader and a chipped Wii which can change the region bit on the fly. The Freloader must do the same thing for people that just don't have chipped Wii's. So if it doesn't play on a Chipped Wii it won't play with Freeloader also. Correct me if I'm wrong [​IMG]

    This game sure is classy. I need to wipe my mouth with fifty dollar bills and eat organic strawberry cake. It was beautiful on the PS2, and it should be spectacular on the Wii.

    I don't often post on these - but for the love of god BUY THIS GAME.

    It's a massive insult to the state of the gaming industry, that companies like Clover have to fold due to low sales.

    Okami was a massive hit in the "scene" and it was the scene that ultimately was it's downfall (it had an appallingly small amount sold).

    This is a chance for a ressurection of Capcom's interest in this kind of thing, to make a new product, rather than port an old one (But it's welcome).

    Personally, I think this game rivalled Zelda, but the graphics were a bit fuzzy at times.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    FreeLoader, if used with a chiiped Wii, stops the double channels ... it basically blocks updates.

    And, on an unchipped Wii, it makes the Wii temporarily region-free, and sorts out the updates.
