    Hey, we also got a psuedo Pikmin 3 announcement. I'm not selling this little thing yet.

    Here are some more games that were mentioned as 2008 as of the last time we heard of them, and all of these are third party:

    Sonic Unleashed
    Gradius Rebirth
    Star Wars Clone Wars
    SNK Arcade Classics V1
    Pro Evo Soccer 09
    King of Fighters Orochi Saga
    FaceBreaker
    maybe Brothers in Arms Double Time
    there's also Rygar, but, we haven't heard much about it..


    I don't much keep up with online DLC stuff very well, it's harder to keep track of, but Gradius Rebirth I'm highly anticipating.

    Some of these look good, but the big thing to me is- how many of these are Wii-exclusive?

    For me, it's less a question of what is exclusive to the Wii, and more of a question of which would I rather play on the Wii. Stuff like Tiger Woods I could not care less on other platforms, but I love me some remote-swinging golf. And the FPSs? I thought COD3 really, truly benefitted from the Wii controls treatment to the point where I can honestly say that I'm mildly looking forward to World at War. Skate It sounds like an absolute blast based on hands-on (and feet-on) previews of the game, especially if you consider Balance Board support. Force Unleashed could go either way, for better or for worse. GHWT looks to be about as good on the Wii compared to its brethren as GH3 was its its; meaning, the important differences are so negligible (to me) that I'll happily get a Wii version just as soon as any other version. Sam & Max is coming to Wii and PC, but at this point, I'll take anything I can play on my couch over something that I'd otherwise have to hunch over the computer keyboard to play. The rest of the OP's mentioned games are exclusives, I think, so should I choose to want to play them, I'd be getting them on the Wii one way or the other.

    The games I listed, some are exclusive to Wii, others are either unchanged from other versions (the SNK games), while others like FaceBreaker and Pro Evo can really benefit from the Wii if treated properly; especially Pro Evo, which many consider Wii Pro Evo 08 to be the best one out there right now, thanks to its controls and interface, which are impossible to replicate on the other platforms. I'm thinking possibly Bros in Arms and Rygar are the most questionable ones as far as expectations go, so they could come out well or come out poorly.

    But ultimately, there's a good reason to have many of these games on the Wii platform despite the multiplatform nature of some of them, and that's what is important to me.

    de Blob looks like fantastic fun. Anybody with a Wii seriously needs to hit Gametrailers and take that one in for a while.

    It strikes me as a more arcadey, more relaxing spin on Jet Grind Radio. Which would be so awesome.

    I doubt Fatal Frame 4 makes 2008, but I'll keep an eye on it, if only because Suda 51 is the man.

    This thread is a good idea, Guek.

    Madden 09 is being made by the team that did the amazing '07 edition, and IGN keeps talking about how amazing Tiger Woods is coming along.

    Also I think LKS is early 2009 just like Rune Factory Frontier.

    I played de Blob when it was released as the college student project for free online.

    What's changed for the console release that makes it an actual game worth money, rather than a quick time-waster you get bored of in about 15 minutes?

    Core gamers are let's say 20-40 years old dudes that play Halo 3 CoD 4 online and stuff like metal gear solid I guess, games that are not Wii'able mostly.

    No more heroes and Mario Kart Wii and Brawl should suffice for anyone imho. 8-)

    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)

    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.
