So it sounds like you're saying The Conduit was "low quality", and High Voltage/Sega marketed it as if they were ashamed of it? Exactly.
Umm... what if I am? The Conduit is a decent enough game but it wasn't the best in the whole world. It got automatic hype because it was a game from a third party that seemed to give a damn and because that's just how Sega does these things, but still, this is a new IP from an then unknown developer. That's risky, period. And one game doesn't make a trend. And speaking of existing markets, Sega released Daisy Fuentes Pilates or something on Wii recently, ready to capture that "obviously there" Wii Fit market, except it bombed. So, of Sega's Wii games, the "bombs" of The Conduit and Madworld, have actually performed better than their "sure things."
What if was Sega's name that was the problem? Or, heck third parties in general. See what making mostly forgettable shovelware for two years will get you. You'll probably still say something like "I don't like Nintendo's Wii game lineup," but nobody can argue that Nintendo doesn't make the best games for the Wii, and this is reinforced by third parties making nothing but garbage for two years. So when they actually start struggling financially and realize that they probably should have made better Wii games from the start, it will be really slow going to earn back the userbase's trust in non-Nintendo games. I mean seriously, if you were a Wii-only owner (like the majority of gamers probably are, just liek most only owned a PS2 last gen) would you seriously buy something that wasn't by Nintendo, now, at this juncture? I at least would understand the skittishness.
I'm sure you'll throw together another long winded Sean Malstrom wannabe type post up to weasel your way out of this, but the reality is, there are many well produced games for the Wii like The Conduit that just didn't sell well,
There's lot of well produced anythings that didn't sell well anywhere. Bionic Commando bombed on PS360, ASH bombed on DS. That doesn't mean anything.
which is why third parties are hardly investing in similar titles.
Whelp, the ball's in their court. As well as their financial struggles.
Its really that simple Jughead.
OK, this is where I tell you that, yes, everybody here can see you've come up with a cute diminutive nickname for me in the form of "Juggalo," and that you think I am the "Fred Phelps" of the Nintendo fans here, who also have "Objectum Sexuality" which basically means we have sexual relations with our consoles, and that you have included me, by my new nickname, in a list of other people you don't like in your signature and your custom forum title (which you have to turn on, by the way, or nobody can see it.)
But see, you're basically trolling me with every post now. And everybody here, even the ones who disagree with you, has given you more respect than you have returned in kind for the various insults you have thrown around.
You probably don't like me, but I like it here and have been here for a really long time, and have been a mod here on and off. I think it would be wise to start looking for greener pastures, before somebody reports this to a mod and you get forced out. But that's just me. It's your call.
