    Please tell me that's what I think it is.

    I do believe it is!

    Yep: Chaos Field, Radio Allergy, and Karous. All in one tidy package.

    Rapidly defining Wii as the shmup console.

    Radio Allergy with two free games sounds good to me.
    (re: I know nothing about the other two besides Chaos Field's supposed mediocrity)

    Sam and Max ? Jesus I was all set to get it for PC too. Saves me the trouble I guess.

    Dangerous Animals looks sweet as well.





    Also I would like to put the following on the table:

    If any of you buy that damn Force unleashed PS2 port with waggle and further the connection that people with wiis will buy that garbage I will find and punch you.

    De Blob is (seemingly quite loosely) based on this freeware game, made by a bunch of German students.

    It looks like they have changed a lot for the Wii game, in fact, it looks like a completely different game, but you can get a bit of an idea what it will play like from this.

    Ok now wait a sec, I haven't heard jack about the crystal bearers game for like ages. I heard rumblings that it had gone the way of the Dodo....

    Is there new word on it that I might have missed? Please keep the dream alive for me.

    I do need to say, though that there looks to be some real gems coming. I think Mushroom Men looks like its going to be alot of fun. I sort of get a Psychonauts feel from the visuals. Which is wonderful of course.

    deBlob looks great, and I'll be picking up The Conduit unless I hear absolutely terrible things about it. Generic does not mean unenjoyable.

    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.
