Not particularly exciting, that happens in October and November. You can read the DS version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Duke Nukem Forever was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Batman: The Brave and the Bold Developed by: WayForward Technologies Published by: Warner Bros. Interactive Release date: September 7th (America), September 24th (Europe) Genre: Action Platformer My Hype Level: Haven't looked much into the Wii version but do want. GBAtemp Hype Level: Probably not as interested unless you're Hadrian Same write-up as the DS thread, my comments feel about the same. I was never into comics or even superhero cartoons as a kid, but nowadays I've been more interested in superheroes in general. And Batman: The Brave and the Bold (based off the recent cartoon) looks to be just that: a classic superhero video game, retro in all its glory. Being only a Wii/DS game means it should have plenty of effort into it (I hope), and I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions Developed by: Griptonite Games Published by: Activision Release date: September 7th (America), September 10th (Europe), September 29th (Australia) Genre: Action Platformer My Hype Level: I'd probably just go for the Xbox version if I wanted GBAtemp Hype Level: Wii version usually gets the short end Now, when taking a Wii version of a multiconsole release, there's a few things you can do. You can dumb down the graphics, add a lot of motion controls, and hope it works. These versions usually are pretty meh but aren't terrible (see The Force Unleashed). You can take the game and build it from the ground up, making it unique and actually pretty good. These are usually the best in most cases (see Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands), but other times they can suck (see Transformers: Cybertron Adventures). Or you can just take the game and fuck it up completely (see tons of games I'm too lazy to dig up). I don't know which one they're going with here, so I'll be skeptical. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Developed by: Vicarious Visions/Neversoft Entertainment Published by: Activision Release date: September 28th (America), September 29th (Australia) Genre: Music My Hype Level: This looks like shit GBAtemp Hype Level: It's Guitar Hero, it can't hurt I'm not gonna lie, this looks awful. The tracklist seems to be the worst I've seen, the presentation is just awful (basically Brutal Legend skin but without funny stuff, Jack Black, and it tries to take itself seriously), and the series has just felt to be running on empty by producing six main games plus countless spinoffs. I'm just not interested at all. Well, it also doesn't help that I don't have a band kit or guitar controller. I'd wait for Rock Band 3, regardless. NHL Slapshot Developed by: EA Canada Published by: Electronic Arts Release date: September 7th (America) Genre: Sports My Hype Level: Trying to make a sports game literal, no thanks GBAtemp Hype Level: Same Ever wonder how many things you can break while playing your Wii? You thought you already smashed enough TVs, priceless vases, and friends while playing Wii Sports. Now what if you were swinging around a hockey stick like that? Well, here ya go, NHL Slapshot! Yeah, this looks stupid. People don't play NHL to feel like they're playing hockey, they might as well play real hockey if they wanted to, they do because it's a fun type of strategy game, if you think about it. Positioning players, doing the right moves, etc. Last time we saw a sports game try to be an actual sport simulator was Tony Hawk Ride, and that obviously went so good. Well, it sold surprisingly well but the game got shit reviews. Samurai Warriors 3 Developed by: Omega Force Published by: Nintendo Release date: September 27th (America), Genre: Hack and slash My Hype Level: Finally, in English! And playable! GBAtemp Hype Level: Meh, I don't like Samurai Warriors Dynasty Warriors is one of my odd video game fetishes. It has absolutely no depth, terrible voice acting, no narrative, and is some of the most mindless gaming you'll find. But for some reason I can plop myself in a chair and hack away horde after horde of baddies for hours on end. Having played the Japanese version of Samurai Warriors 3 I can safely say it does just that and works pretty nicely too. Unfortunately, the PAL versions are pretty much unplayable on NTSC settings, so I've had to wait around for this to get a dose of it in English. A Shadow's Tale Developed by: Hudson Soft Published by: Hudson Soft Release date: September 8th (Europe) Genre: Action/Puzzle Platformer My Hype Level: I have the Japanese English version GBAtemp Hype Level: Hey, it got a write-up! Since y'all bitched and moaned about this not getting a write-up last month, I've decided to give you one. And it's "A Shadow's Tale" in Europe, not "Lost in Shadows". Deal with it. I played a bit of the Japanese version and it's definitely pretty good. Combat is a bit clunky and that's probably my only complaint. The visual style and looking at the world as a shadow is very cool. Plus some of the shadow manipulation you get to becomes neat. Odds are not many of you will bother with this version since the Japanese one was packed with tons of languages, but if you're interested in one with slightly more English, here it is. Other titles - Metroid: Other M: 9/2 (Japan, Australia), 9/3 (Europe) - Tetris Party Deluxe: 9/3 (Europe) - Cabela's North American Adventures: 9/14 (America) - Swords: 9/14 (America) - Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's: Duel Transer: 9/14 (America) - FIFA Soccer '11: 9/30 (Australia) Overall Summary It's not bad, but it's nothing too exceptional. It'll keep you satisfied until next month, and then if you start complaining next month, then you're just retarded. BOOOOM NEXT MONTH. NBA Jam and Kirby's Epic Yarn are headlining. Plus there's also the forgotten favorite Rock of the Dead, a localization of Wii Party, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes (in English!), DJ Hero 2, Rock Band 3, The Force Unleashed II, Sid Meier's Pirates!, and the list goes on and on. It's gonna be a huge Wii month next month, and November may even be bigger. Have a nice September!
