    I have to admit, I don't see anything that I'm really excited for coming to the Wii later this year. I see several games that have potential and might end up as being really cool (I'm curious to see how de Blog turns out), but I'm not seeing anything that I'd consider preordering. Well, maybe that shmup collection. :)

    On the other hand, I'm not disappointed in the Wii. It's primarily my wife's & daughter's system (where I do most of my gaming on the 360 & PC), but it's nice to have around for the occasional cool exclusive.

    The OP is only listing Third Party games.

    But maybe at this point it'd be a good idea to list all the first party ones as well.

    I think people are putting an awful lot of faith into The Conduit just because the developers said nice-sounding things.
    It still looks a little generic.
    You want to look at pushing the Wii graphically? Look at Deadly Creatures.

    Well the IGN guys are pretty ga ga over the game, maybe that's where that faith is coming from? I'm not saying you should listen to IGN, but a lot of people do so that may be why it's getting so hyped.

    Wow, that looks really cool...

    Alright, so I translated the page Lewie linked, dug around some more, and found this:
    Wiifanboy wrote:
    Just a few days after the first scan, Taito has released a few screens of the new Wii Space Invaders game, Space Invaders Get Even. In this "from the Invaders' perspective" game, swarms of glowing 8-bit Invaders take down 3D cities. The player uses the Nunchuk to control the elusive UFO, and the Wii Remote to direct 300 Invaders. The stages are broken into three areas each, and there are forest, city, military, and other types of stages.

    We still don't know how the three types of Invader differ, but we can at least see that they can be directed at separate targets, even outside of their traditional formation. We also don't know if "DOOOOOOM!" is the sound of an explosion, or a description of the humans' fate, or if GIR is in one of the ships.

    Very cool. It seems like an RTS-lite kind of design, which Kotaku guessed as a Pikmin-Rampage mash-up. I don't buy the Rampage connection, but I think it'll be an arcade-style game with many different levels with their own objectives to complete. Not really a traditional RTS, but still sounds promising.

    The translated page says a Summer 2008 release, which obviously is for Japan. I just checked IGN which has a December 31st, 2008 WiiWare release in Japan, so... I think it'll be a while before we see it in the Americas.

    Bah, I was just about to mention that. Anyway, according to Play Asia
    The sixteen games included in the package are: Art of Fighting, Baseball Stars 2, Burning Fight, Fatal Fury, King of Fighters '94, King of the Monsters, Last Resort, Magician Lord, Metal Slug, Neo Turf Masters, Samurai Shodown, Sengoku, Shock Troopers, Super Sidekicks 3, Top Hunter and World Heroes
    That doesn't sound too bad for $30.

    Also, MLB Power Pros 2008 drops on the 28th. I never got around to playing the first one, although I really want to. From what I've heard and read the first one was really good.

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play by Tiburon and EA - August 26, 2008

    If you're anything like me and you were expecting some bitchin motion control golf action back when the wii launch, you were likely sorely disappointed with what Tiger Woods 07 had to offer. Thankfully, this new version looks to deliver on a lot of our golfing hopes. With much better controls, tuned up visuals, online play, new modes (annoying ball battle action, HOOOO!), this iteration might end up satisfying those of us looking for the perfect drive.
    Definitely interested in this one. I haven't really enjoyed a golf game since Links on the Oxbox. I've been itching for a decent one to take its place. Maybe this will fit the bill.

    Why Lucasarts hasn't approached Nintendo with a SCUMMVM for Wii towards VC distribution of old adventures is a mistery. Am I the only one who thinks it's a no-brainer? Even the 480i display is perfect for it.

    There's some home-brew solutions for it, but it would be very nice to have something official. MmMMmmmm..... The Dig... Maniac Mansion... Monkey Islands.... ... ... um... excuse, me I have to go now.

    You couldn't fit The Dig on the internal flash memory (though I'd buy it on a disc, anyway), but the older ones, from Maniac Mansion to Fate of Atlantis (no speech version) would be just fine as VC games.

    Have you played the DS version? It's near unplayable and every transition and animation has been left off.

    Anyway, The Dig's dialogue might be compressed down to VC size, but the game used pre-recorded videos extensively. Even with today's compression techniques, and given the Wii's hardware limitation, I don't think you can turn The Dig into a 20 meg, or even 50 meg download.

    DS cartridges, for reference, go all the way up to 128 megs, which is way above what Nintendo is letting devs put on VC and WiiWare.

    I see Monster Lab as a darker, bleaker, yet still kid-friendly enough alternative to Pokemon battling.

    If they can sell Monster Lab as the darker bleaker Pokemon battler, I think they have a win here.

    Basically, don't sell it from the RPG or Wii-play perspective, but approach it as a much better version of Pokemon Battle Tournament.

    All I know is that you create monsters, or something. I've yet to see what you do with said-created-monsters, which, at least for me, would be a major selling point.
