The Wii is different so I want different games from the Wii,  

 So you buy Darkside Chronicles instead of LKS? 

Hey Vader, you want better 3rd party Wii games? How about buying some good games?! Endless Ocean 2, LKS or perhaps Silent Hill: Shattered Memories?!

Action speak louder than words, and your buying habits put you in the "mainstream whore" category.

i just ordered yakuza 3!  this brings the total of ps3 games i bought full price to ... three (out of a collection of over 30).  yakuza 3, demon's souls and blazblue.

just felt that i'd been so vocal about wanting sega to release this in the west that it would be hypocritical to wait for it to go hobo.  this way i will have the right to bitch if they try not to do a western release for part 4.

still looking forward to getting: uncharted 2, assassins creed 2, god of war III, darksiders, final fantasy etc at nice hobo bin prices

edit: make that 4 games.  i forgot street fighter IV

 Yep, I had to had to pay full price for Y3.  Sega does listen.  They said no to Y2 for years, until the community wore them down.  I made sure to thank them by e-mail for releasing Y2 and 3.  But if 4 bombs, that will be it for us westerners.  In part 3 is coming out only to lift awareness of the series.

I've only paid full price for 5 PS3 games - Demon's Souls, the UC's, Y3 and Disgaea 3 (that's out of 44 titles).

On this third-party Wii thing... I've broken it down before, but it bears repeating, and unfortunately I have to use the "core" term to explain it.

1. Third party publishers and developers are by practice "core" developers.  That has been their sole source of revenue for their entire existence.  So right away they are out of their league in trying to appeal to the new customers that Nintendo has brought to the market with the Wii.

2. Core gamers who have a Wii also have at least one of the HD systems.  If a core game is released for the Wii and for any of the other systems they would be more inclined to get that game on the HD system over the Wii -- and not just because of the graphics, but also because of the traditional controller form factor, online achievements and trophies or to play online with their friends.

I just don't know what to say to that.

LOL What a load of bullshit. Motion control gaming is not the culprit here. Weird interfaces with even weirder hardware peripheral design is what's stressing them out.

I love Petey, but he's trying too hard with this shit. Hopefully things will work out, both for him and Microsoft's strange proposal. I'd be willing to believe, though, that the first batch of Natal-enabled software is going to provide enough gif material to last a lifetime.

I agree with 1 pretty much but disagree with you on 2. You're describing one type of core gamer (fps fans come to mind) - but there are other types of gamers.

It's like you used to be a core gamer if you played lots of games and were on top of the upcoming releases. Now to be a core gamer you need HD, a dualshock or dualshock copy and online achievements and trophies?  Nuts to that.  Dualshock is just an interface and online one option.

Third parties aren't  interested in innovations just iterations. And why not when you have a built in audience married to  dualshock controls, realistic graphics, and only online play.

Core gamers want to be able to play as broad a spectrum of games as is possible, which means ownership of a HD system in addition to a Wii is required.

Third parties are not interested in innovation or iterations.  They are interested in money, and they follow their noses whereever that will lead them.  If htey thought they could make more money making facebook games they'd abandon all of us in 3 weeks.

I wouldn't really say that about all third-parties a lot of these guys who head these projects enjoy the types of games they make and envision them in particular ways.

^The developers? ABSOLUTELY? The publishers (that is the ones that make the money decisions for the developers), no way.

Well I'd even say the publishers on some levels as well since some of them are one in the same ie. Capcom. There are still plenty of core-type games that don't rake in mountains of cash but are still supported by publishers.

The Wii is different so I want different games from the Wii,  

So you buy Darkside Chronicles instead of LKS?

Hey Vader, you want better 3rd party Wii games? How about buying some good games?! Endless Ocean 2, LKS or perhaps Silent Hill: Shattered Memories?!

Action speak louder than words, and your buying habits put you in the "mainstream whore" category.

Well I never said those games would be better than the major third party stuff, they are not. I will get those games when I have disposable income or I will rent them. As for DSC, yeah thats on my RE obsession, we all have our own.  I don't want just good games, I want EXCELLENT games (in genres I like). So that is why I buy Mario Galaxy, Metroid and Nintendo stuff.

i just ordered yakuza 3!  this brings the total of ps3 games i bought full price to ... three (out of a collection of over 30).  yakuza 3, demon's souls and blazblue.

just felt that i'd been so vocal about wanting sega to release this in the west that it would be hypocritical to wait for it to go hobo.  this way i will have the right to bitch if they try not to do a western release for part 4.

still looking forward to getting: uncharted 2, assassins creed 2, god of war III, darksiders, final fantasy etc at nice hobo bin prices

edit: make that 4 games.  i forgot street fighter IV

Hey! Did you know Yakuza features a CRANE GAME?!?

CRANE!

GAME!


*Yeah. Good Luck winning any prizes from it though!*

  I won almost every time I played in the demo. Happy

So Mega Man 10, anyone else get it. Here is a man's game, no handholding just all out playing. It's just like every MM game, the first level I did, sheep man, was very interesting. It had some neat new  enemies and new obstacles in the level, great start. I found it odd that I finished the level on my first try. From there I tried other bosses and the levels were rather standard MM layouts, a few new tricks here and there but nothing on the level of MM9. i found myself flying through the game, clearly MM10 is WAY easier than MM9. It's still loads of fun but not as interesting as MM9 was with its interesting levels and bosses. Also the music in MM9 is better.

One thing MM10 does have that is totally sweet is challenge modes. These are small challenege rooms you need to complete. They focus on a certain action like jumping, jumping in water, falling down and avoiding spikes, using boss weapons, etc. It's a sort of tutorial as it teaches you to handle the different environmental dangers plus it is challenging. There are about 80 in total.

I will probably beat the story tonight, hopefully the Wily stages get harder. One funny thing I saw was in the start screen when you choose between easy mode and normal mode it shows a picture showing the differences. On normal you see some gaps with spikes and an enemy at the end waiting to hit you as you jump. On easy that are covers on the spikes and no enemy, basically you just run across the screen. LOL

It came out Wii first, then PSN then XBLA.  Mabe Capcom is sucking up to the JP publishers for all thier gaijin-love making (Lost Planet, Dead Rising etc...).

Reggie Q&A

IGN: So -- you got anything that can compete against Sony's revolutionary Move controller and sub-controller?

[Reggie leans back in his chair and laughs for several moments.]

Reggie Fils-Aime:  So, if imitation is the most sincere form of flattery then I am blushing I'm so flattered.
