strell you're just like your mother, you're never satisfied!

That's because I am so disappointed.  Just like she was with you.

So this is what it feels like when doves cry!

It's a Simpsons quote, by the way.  Just in case you didn't know.

No worries.

Haha I was just thinking...when the game sells poorly, they can port it to the PS2!

Geez it wasn't an insult, nor was it an insult aimed at you.

I was joking about how Capcom is going to make this work, since I don't see it happening.  Which means we'll get a gimped port of a 2 year old game that isn't even that good to begin with.

Thank you for posting this. This news is pretty cool. Doesn't this game have tons of enemies on screen? How do you think Capcom has gotten around that problem of not enough power?

We'll DIG our way out!


No no.  Dig UP, stupid.

I'm not following any chats or videofeeds or anything so I wasn't sure, from what I'm reading in random forums around the internet is some sort of a show about three games and practically no footage of anything else.


They showed Animal Crossing with a new voice chat mic that plugs into your USB port and sits on top of the sensor bar.  So now we have voice chat.

Then they showed Rabbids 3, Call of Duty, and some nonsense I don't remember.

They showed Wii Sports 2 but basically made it look boring.

They showed Wii Music, which literally requires no skill at all to play.  None.  Air-guitar is harder to play.  Seriously.

GTA coming to the DS but not shown in any way.

Nothing else.  No Punch-Out, no Kid Icarus, no Wario: Shake, no anything.  For the last 6 months we've been told that we'll find out plans for the rest of this year from E3, and absolutely nothing happened.

Please.  Someone who works at NWR, or any other affiliate associated with the press...

Just kick Matt in the nuts.  I'm choosing to blame some of this disappointment on him with all his shitty rumors and useless hype.

Even I can't get excited about Wii music.

This whole gen is disappointing.

How do you **** up confirming voice chat AND 1:1 motion?


Explain that to me.

Detects it in 3D space, eh?

Now when I duel someone online with a lightsaber, they're going to keep asking why the sword is right where my character's penis should be.

Ho ho ho.  And then in their shock, I shall destroy them.

Wiimote: Now two inches longer.  For her pleasure.

As tiny as this is, I think it's an indicator of what is going on at Nintendo's HQ, and I think it's simply that they just do not fucking care at all about attempting to secure exclusives and appeal to the non-casual audience.

It's a bitter pill to swallow, because I look at the games they have made themselves and see a well-rounded sampling of both casual and hardcore games.  But then I look at every other developer and realize that they are trying to emulate only part of Nintendo's strategy by pumping out the least-polished software based around little more than "push the button, win the game" mechanics.

I think Nintendo knows the Wii has been a huge accomplishment, and I actually somewhat believe in the idea that they've expanded the audience of gamers all around.  But I don't see these people following Nintendo in 2-3 years when they HAVE to release a new system to stop the bleeding of any third party game.  Which makes me think Nintendo's attitude NOW is the most telling of what they intend to do with their entire company, and since it looks like they are absolutely pleased-as-**** with their own success, they've lost all drive and motivation to truly keep going.

These first two years were marked with a fairly good array of titles, but the third parties continually plunge further and further into absolute bullshit, and even Nintendo's own devhouses appear to be completely happy with actively avoiding sending out games that might potentially win favor in the gaming crowd.

I mean, we can talk sales all we want, but the numbers apparently show that barely anyone plays their systems, downloads games, or actively purchases retail software.  And frankly, Microsoft could just as easily claim that they are in as good - if not better - position than Nintendo since their userbases are fairly close at the moment.

I'm just so tired of looking up new info from Nintendo and seeing it all be a kick in the nuts.  Right now, every 360/PS3 fanboy is actively cursing Nintendo and pointing out how "it was totally bullshit that the Wii would get MM9 exclusively."  The back-pedaling is insane.  First MM9 is announced for the Wii and everyone bitches.  Then it's for everyone and they are all happy, completely forgetting that the previous day they complained about the graphics and totally swore off ever playing it.  Then it went back to the Wii only and they made the same arguments in greater degree.  And now it's back to everyone and THEY ALL ARE PISSING ON NINTENDO instead of just saying "alright cool."

The Wii has actually given Nintendo worse standing in the gaming community, and their next system is going to suffer for it.  I don't see the casuals adopting new hardware, and I don't see the hardcore kids wanting to bother with it at all.

A scary proposition.  And yet Nintendo seems to just not fuckin' care at all, and THAT is what annoys me so damn much about this entire scenario.


I think I know Konami's game here.  They know I am so appalled by the horrid Soul Calibur IV - wracked with Namco's extreme ambition to try and suck away every ounce of dignity from the series by populating it with bullshit anime figures and ridiculous third party characters - that I'll actually start to see CJ as "making sense" in a way, and ultimately be drawn to it.

I mean, at least the characters designs aren't laughable like SC has become.

"Exclusively for the Wii."

Gosh, really?

Aren't we lucky.

Don't get your hopes up.  This is NP.

I'm guessing whatever news they dish out is something we've known for a good long while.

Hey!  Maybe it's Castlevania Judgement!  They could make it two-for-two with Castlevania rumors.

Oh, and be sure to **** all over my desperate want of Mother 3, Nintendo!  Classy!

As much as I hate to say it, I'm with Ian on this one. 

The third party offerings this time around fall into those categories he described.

I do see the point that third party software from a "have versus have not" angle is marginally better this generation around, but it's still pretty abysmal.

We all know that 3D Castlevanias suck, and that sticking franchise characters into a fighting game MORE OFTEN THAN NOT results in total failure (some obvious exceptions noted).  Konami has tried their hand at fighters, and they've failed everytime.

The ONLY WAY this could possibly be good is if I find out they've stolen major players from the Tekken and Virtua Fighter development teams.

I mean, is this what I have to look forward to when it comes to non-1st/2nd party games for Nintendo's consoles until eternity?  It's like everyone is being as passively aggressive as humanly possible toward Nintendo these days.  Capcom brings us endless remakes/re-releases, doesn't advertise them, and than whines about sales, but then turns the profit around and wastes it on big production 360/PS3 games that *can not* be driving profits that high.  EA strips out key elements and gives us bull**** I am a terrible poaster. -grade nonsense.  Namco is basically nowhere to be found. 

I mean SERIOUSLY.  So now the next time I hear a rumor that could be actually GOOD, like, say, "Metal Gear Solid may come to the Wii," the absolute BEST I could hope for in that situation would be Metal Kart Solid, right?  Or Metal Party Solid?  Or Metal Puzzle Solid?

I'm so ****ing tired of this kind of ****.  The best answer that can be given to me is to get another console, and that's a few hundred bucks easily.

I mean, I don't even know who to be mad at anymore.  Should I be pissed at Nintendo for letting this kind of bull**** happen?  Should I be pissed at Nintendo for seemingly making motion controls this generation's version of GC-GBA connectivity, where we have one minor/overblow/turns out to not be that great feature being used *in place of* something that developers and gamers actually respond to (i.e., connectivity versus online play, and now waggle versus HD graphics)?  Should I be pissed at Iga, because he's a damn asshole?  Should I be pissed at Konami, who greenlit this trash to begin with?

I've had it with this generation.  It's nothing but derivative crap on the "big" systems, and nothing but PURE **** on the Wii.

Everyone knows SOTN rocks.  Everyone generally seems to like the DS incarnations.  Why in the **** would you not want to pursue that inherent fanbase?

That has to be about the most perfect deconstruction of corporate PR bullshit I've ever seen. 

"I wish I could photoshop.  Cut that **** out."

Haha, touche'.

I took the liberty of storyboarding it as a gag over at CAG. 

Ignore the "botticus."  That's me making fun of a forum member over there.

I question the existence of one's soul if they do not like the game.

When I post, it posts at my local time, which is 4:52 AM.

However, I made those posts after IceCold/Homsar/Bill.


Doubly weird because it says I'm the last post in the thread, but I'm technically not.
