Indiana Jones Staff of Kings for Wii
« on: January 23, 2009, 08:11:44 PM »
While it seems like the PS3 and 360 version of Indy's latest adventure is discarded looks like the Wii version is still in production along with a DS version and a Playstation version (probably PSP) why the hell isn't there a specific PS2, PSP or PS3 logo already for trailers ?!?!?

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

I'm waiting for official announcement, but it looks cool if the trailer is any indication of gameplay.

Remember the Indiana Jones game for the Atari?

Wow, that sucked. Like, you had a gun, but it had limited ammo and I always wasted the shots on some stupid snakes (otherwise they killed me!) :(

Yeah, Indiana Jones makes perfect sense for the Wii. Not only is the Wii the market leader, but the control scheme is infinitely better suited for the Wii-mote/chuck than with a dualaxis or MS-pad. Swinging the remote in order to swing Indy's whip, or to aim his pistol sounds like awesome fun!

I'd say its no wonder the PS3/60 versions were cancelled. Not only are they the market losers, but they can't whip it, whip it good.

This is key.  I'm all over a good Indy game.  In fact, I'd kill for a Zack & Wiki-type adventure game.  Unfortunately, it'll probably be closer to Tomb Raider:(
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

Step into the shoes of the legendary hero, Indiana Jones, in an all new epic adventure! Set in the year 1939, Indiana Jones® and the Staff of Kings™ follows the rogue archaeologist on an all-new globe-trotting quest.

From San Francisco's Chinatown to the lush jungles of Panama, Indy must use his whip, fists and wits to fight through ruthless opposition as he spars with his nemesis, Magnus Völler, in a race for a relic of biblical proportions — the Staff of Moses.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings features completely interactive environments, where players need to call upon their wits and daring to make each spring-loaded environment a weapon in order to dispense of foes in clever and unexpected ways. Also, embark upon thrilling action sequences that remain true to the spirit established in scenes such as Indy's pursuit of the motorcade in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and the free-for-all aboard the tank in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Product Information

* Wield your Wii Remote™ like Indy’s signature whip for a variety of uses — from combat to navigation to puzzle-solving.
* Use your highly interactive Hot Set™ environments and your wits to defeat your enemies.

By the look of the screen shots, those specs need some anti-aliasing as well. But now just waiting to see the game in motion.

I don't think there was a trolley in this game. But then again, I haven't played through it in years.

I think that was for the canceled PS3/360 game.  I don't think it was related to this game.

Um, what?  The game hasn't come out yet, so I don't think you could have played it years ago.  Just saying.

This is probably more fallout from Kairon's Emperor's Tomb gaffe.

Sorry, I assumed that he was talking about 'The Fate of Atlantis' since someone posted that it was going to be a bonus on the Wii edition. Atlantis was released back in like '92/'93 ish I believe.

Hmm...the game sounds interesting enough in the IGN Preview, and lord knows Fate of Atlantis alone is worth that price tag (provided it's the voiced version, as it damn well should be).  Just one thing that bothered me, and it's the sort of thing that would bother some people and not others: they're apparently not going to be referring to the Germans in the game as Nazis, and their emblem won't be in the game.  Bull...fracking...****!  This game takes place in 1939!  They're Nazis!  In the films they're Nazis!  If you're going to have an Indiana Jones game in the 1930s that has German antagonists, it's just pointless and cowardly to hide from calling them what they were: Nazis.  I thought we were past pointless self-censorship like this ages ago!

Incidentally, Fate of Atlantis has the rather amusing honor of being the oldest game in my gaming backlog.  I played it for PC way back not too long after it came out (I had both it and X-Wing), and I got up to a particular point on all 3 paths before being completely stuck.  Unfortunately, by the time I figured out the solution I no longer had the game (it wasn't exactly a legal version and our photocopied manual got lost, and in those days they put the keycodes for entering the game on the pages of the manual).  It has been bothering me for literally almost 2 decades now that I never beat Atlantis, because I really loved that game.  Ah, to finally be able to remove that game from my backlog!  Pure bliss.
