Makes world leading predictions like "The sun will rise tomorrow"

" IGN overlord Peer Schneider decided to enlist the help of readers for this Friday's Wii-k in Review podcast. On his blog, he asked users to post questions they had about Wii or its games and he promised to make sure many of those questions got answered by Matt.

With Bozon out on vacation, this week's podcast has been transformed into a question and answer-fest -- Peer asking 'em and Matt providing answers, some more insightful than others. We've also got a clip of Nintendo's own Beth Llewelyn chatting about Metroid, Mario and Smash Bros. all coming out this year for Wii. "

Downloading now. Will post summary while I'm listening to it.

Running Time: 1:00:44


Summary:

Q: Wii getting any RPGs? Namely, Atlus?
A: Matt thinks Atlus will join Wii because of DS support. Matt thinks Monolith Soft will make some RPGs. Says there's "no doubt about it".

Q: Any information about Disaster: Day of Crisis?
A: Nope. Look foward to E3.

Q: Worst game ever released?
A: Carmageddon 64.

Q: Animal Crossing Wii information?
A: No new info to report. Will be online.

Q: NCAA Football 08 not on Wii. Why not?
A: Madden was a test-water title for EA. NCAA may be seen next year if Madden does well.

Q: Which title gives you most hope for the Wii?
A: Super Mario Galaxy. "Felt fresh". Liked how it merges old and new.

Q: Of all games shown, which are you most excited for?
A: Galaxy. Likes the rest of the holy trinity and Manhunt 2. 1 or 2 behind closed doors games that have yet to be shown. 1 of them is hardcore gamer oriented. Let it slip that Nintendo was making it.

Q: How much do you like the word "quasi"?
A: Nobody cares. Was apparently a joke about Matt's writing style.

Q: What's happening with Camelot?
A: Nobody knows. They're working on some PC games.

Q: Do you see the state of 3rd party Wii support changing by the end of the year?
A: Yes. Sales talk.

Q: Do you think that bluetooth headset support will be added?
A: Probably not. Maybe? Who knows. (They go off on a friend code tangeant) Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree uses system friend codes. Not game. Matt thinks it should happen with Battalion Wars II.

Q: Ever had problems or needed help on reviews?
A: All the time. Usually happens with mediocre games. Had tons of problems with Wii Sports.

Q: If Hollywood was making IGN the movie, who would play you?
A: Gilbert Gottfied or Ron Pearlman.

Q: Any games coming out (or have come out) that feature calibration so that the pointer is exactly where you're pointing?
A: Nope. They see technical issues to it.

Q: What would you like to see Retro due after MP3?
A: A new RPG or FPS. Maybe revisit past-planned IPs (like Raven Blade). They have a new original project in the works

Q: What to make of comments about MP3 and "revolutinizing" FPS controls on Wii?
A: Matt still doesn't think MP3 won't make Mouse+Keyboard.

Q: River City Ransom. Great game or GREATEST game?
A: Great game.

Q: Will GHIII guitar be cheaper on Wii?
A: Doubt it.

Q: Played any online multiplayer on Wii that has little/no lag?
A: Yep. Strikers.

Q: Any news about an F-Zero Wii?
A: Nope.

Q: A second industry-wide crash in the next five years?
A: Probably not, but many companies who gamble on 360/PS3 and sales don't meet expectations may fold.

Q: I (yes me, ZealousD) asked if Matt would punch Luke Smith in the face. They censored his name. Bah!
A: He wouldn't. Damn it! Somewhat related, they talked about if possible Perrin interview soon. Matt doesn't know. Matt is bitter about not getting to play MP3 at the Nintendo event.

Q: When could Brawl be available in Europe?
A: No clue. They don't even have a release date for SPM.

Q: When is original downloadable games?
A: Before the end of the year most likely. They had a totally brain fart with Geometry Wars. Geo Wars will be a disc game.

Q: Which multiplayer game are you looking most forward to?
A: Strikers

Q: Because of the big composer list posted on a Smash Bros site, what new characters do you think will be announced?
A: Dozens possibly. Why else would they need that many composers to the project? Sonic is likely. Probably some Capcom characters. Peer is thinking it could go the other way (ala Mushroom Kingdom Hearts).

Q: Who cuts your hair?
A: Local barber for $8. Never combs it.

Q: Are the new MP3 screens actually new?
A: Most likely, because they're widescreen, which is new.

Q: How often do you get called Assamassina?
A: EVERYBODY says it!

Q: Super Metroid on VC when?
A: It's coming soon. Just don't know exactly when.

Q: What are you holding back?
A: Only 1 that he knows alot. Several others that he hasn't seen personally, but is aware of.

Q: Storage may be an issue in the future. Any HDD support new?
A: They have a contract with some HD company, so possibly.

Q: Will RE:UC or Dragon Quest Swords change on-rails games?
A: They don't really answer the question. Not too impressed with RE:UC. Differences of opinion on DQS. Likes Rayman's plunger levels.

Q: Any good exclusive Wii FPS games coming?
A: Red Steel 2, maybe. Probably not others because FPS devs are tech whores.

Q: GHIII - Will the Wii be unique and awesome?
A: Will somehow use the remote differently. Don't really know.

Q: Favorite sweater?
A: Matt is out of sweaters.

Q: Character you want to see the most in Brawl?
A: Samus. Otherwise Leon Kennedy, Viewtiful Joe, or Sonic. Pikmin maybe.

Q: Any other big third party games?
A: Nothing too big, but a couple.

Q: Any info on Sadness?
A: Nope.

Q: Why didn't Matt appear in some Discovery channel special on video games? (Peer appeared in it)
A: The answer sucked. Don't worry about this one.

Q: Star Wars Lightsaber game? Please?
A: Idea was pitched around to developers, but nothing beyond that.

Q: Any new info on DDR Hottest Party?
A: Will have 80's song. More standard fare difficulty than Mario Mix.

Q: Online Exclusive Multplayer FPS?
A: They talk a bit about Timesplitters, but FRD is on Haze.

Q: Wii redesign ala DS Lite?
A: Probably not. On rechargeable battery packs, Nintendo doesn't like the idea because of power consumption issues. Black Wii may show back up.

Q: Favorite Reggie Quote?
A: Kick ***, take names. "Last time Matt made a game it was called the Mailbag".

Q: How long is the wifi connection time in Strikers?
A: Hotel connection at Media Summit was awful, but even then the game ran with little lag.

Q: How can Nintendo do DLC with the little bit of internal memory?
A: Maybe SD cards.

Q: New Project HAMMER info?
A: Wait til E3.

-Tangeant on holy trinity coming in 07. Plays clip of Beth Llewelyn confirming it.

Q: Is Link in Soul Calibur Legends?
A: Nope. Matt isn't encouraged by Soul Calibur Legends. Says that the original Soul Calibur games aren't behind it.

-Tangeant only Mortal Kombat Armageddon. Controls took a bit getting used to.
-Matt still bitter about not being shown MP3.
-Manhunt 2 disccussion. Matt slams people complaining about its graphics. Manhunt 2 looks better in motion.
-Mario Party 8 review soon. Review won't be pretty. Neither liked the game all that much. Wii remote usage is sloppy.

At around 52 minutes, they confirm that Soul Calibur Quest (or Legends, if you want to get technical) isn't very good. Not being made by the normal SC team.

Yeah I said that it wouldn't be good either in that Wii-k thread. Remember everyone, it's Bandai-Namco now.

Summary is done.

Basically, Matt let it slip that Ninendo is making an unnannounced hardcore-gamer title. Couple other games that Matt is optomistic about that we haven't seen. Matt really wanted to play MP3. Mario Party 8 sucks.

Wow, a whole new game? Our fears of a sustained drought were quite unfounded it seems!

EDIT: On second thought, this is a bit worrisome. I hope they don't overextend themselves here... maybe they should take things a bit more slowly?

Leon would rock in SSBB and he already has a move set they can grab from RE4, throw on his RPD gear and he would be ready. Retro's new IP is probably the same thing as the Nintendo one he talks about, would be nice to get something like that announced at E3.

His own fault for all that HD whining he did well after the fact he knew what was in the system same could said for some of his reviews where his over expectations made for bad reviews. Funny enough this has to be the 3rd time on this game print was given a heads up before he was. Gamepro and GI then all those at the summit gotta hurt to know that your internet job does crap for ya when it matters. Use to like him but's he nothing more than a dull tool for the companies he selectively chooses to like.

Towards the end of the podcast Matt and Peer were all like "why haven't we seen lots of bump-mapping on wii? We firmly believe that if no games are using it, then wii isn't really capable of such shader effects"

Ummm, guys, ever taken a look at Starfox Adventures? Rebel Strike? These games feature tons of it, and they were for Gamecube.

A few other members here and there have made the point, but most seem to ignore that. I don't expect matt to change on this issue he's proved time and time again he's nothing more than a posing graphic whore with an agenda. Maybe someone should tell him that we don't see lots of bump mapping because most devs are to lazy to learn the architecture. Basically this issue will never be resolved in the media or hc gaming base because it would require them to admit outside of handful of developers the rest sucked on the architecture. Granted SE and Konami are welcome to the party, but I never thought EA would be pushing the system more than say a company like ubisoft which does have legacy of pushing systems.

What kind of bull**** answer was that? Nintendo expects people to keep their Wii on using WiiConnect (even forcing channels that don't need it, to use it), but recharging is a waste of electricity?

The thing uses 8 watts in standby mode. Call me naive, but that should be enough to USB power the thing. At least then it would serving some purpose.

wtf was the part about MP3 and m/kb controls...the summary features a nonsensical phrase.

also seems that IGN are more and more out of the loop. They don't appear to know much about other Wii projects. Perhaps it is a result of developers generally keeping games from the press until closer to launch.

But I think Matt is right about being annoyed that developers are failing to even come close to maxing-out hardware that is already years old. When you see Wii games looking worse than GC games it is unacceptable.

He said that metroid had the most polished FPS controls he's seen on wii the last time he played it and based on that last play session, he say's that they've already beaten analog sticks by a mile.... But he still thinks mouse and keyboard is better and that it will remain better.
