This one got a good score at famitsu right?

May have look at it, but only if it has good wiimote controls. No balance board for me until they sell it separately.

Mii integration is so great. I really hope that more and more games use it. To date I think Mario Kart is the showcase example of how to effectively integrate Miis.

As a side note, for 2009 I'm merely keeping my eye open for a lot of the announced titles. Nothing of it, to me, is worth getting excited over just yet. That said, I will gladly admit that Wii Sports Resort is probably a day 1 purchase, and I usually never use the "day 1" term. The sword fighting with Wii MotionPlus alone is enough of a reason to buy.

Well, that and I'm one of the folks who greatly enjoyed the original Wii Sports.

Wow the first one was actually quite impressive but damn. I really might have to get my hands on a balance board one of these days. I really want to try this out. Honestly the cartoon Miis actually kind of work with that background. I'm diggin it.

So, hey! Games I'm going to buy! This is nice. Been waiting for this, spending most of my time between Eve Online and Lock's Quest till something happened on the Wii front.

Year of PS3 means a comback in sales and developer support for PS3.

Best Year of Wii means that the Wii gets better games than the previous years.

Big difference, really. Of course, this is assuming the games in the OP do come out this year.

No, because, in PS3s case, the software was supposed to lead to great hardware sales. That's why people laugh at "year of PS3". If you look at the quality of the released titles, they were actually quite good.

Good year for Japan maube, dunno about NA. It really depends on upcoming announcements.
If Konami doesn't announce a port of Capcom vs T-something, I may have to start importing.

What happened to that Capcom action platform game that everyone was hating on the one time it was revealed even though it didn't look half bad?

If Konami announces the localization of the Capcom vs game something weird is going on ;p

The other game you're thinking of is probably Spyborgs, and it's undergoing a major overhaul.

If the "EVAR!!" in the title didn't tip you off, the title is deliberately over-the-top and parodic.

Whoah, what is this "Rogue Trooper"? :O
An old tps. Its free on Gametap right now and I've been playing it in between other gaming sessions. It really does have some cool ideas and overall pretty solid gameplay (cover system works very well). Just gets a bit repetitive and the AI is absolutely horrible.

Honestly it just makes me angry that no developer has made a tps on the Wii to date. Something like this game made for the Wii and its controls would be phenomenal. The cover system and aiming would work so well. Might be true for this game but at its core it is just an average game.

No one says "year of the Wii", this is not about system wars.

I'm interested in:
Conduit (I'm the only 360 owner who thinks that FPS games have more potential on Wii)
Red Steel II (against all reason)
Boom Blox II (Cuz its fucking BOOM BLOX)
Mad World
Pikmin (in any form, if the price is right)
Sin and Punishment 2
Muramasa: The Demon Blade
Punch Out (only if it had balance board support)

Almost entirely THIRD PARTY BTW and largely western

This may have already been covered, but is Spawn Smasher a 2D platformer? I can't seem to get the trailer to buffer on my computer set-up.

Yes, it is. I hope.. no... I WANT know more about this game. Platformer is my favorite genre.

Man can dream, but I doubt it. The Wii ports of the Guitar Hero are pretty damn assy in the visual department. That shot alone looks better than anything GH3 and World Tour do.

Lars looking like a knob is probably the only thing that will make faithful transition.

What are the chances of Monster Hunter G getting localised for the west? Being a non-PSP owning gamer, it's always been a series that has interested but eluded me >:

Some nice looking 3rd party efforts this year, waaaay more than 2008.

Been doing a superb job with the thread BDGAME. Keep up the good work.

Everytime I see a screen of K.O.R.E Gang, I kinda feel a bit light-headed...

It seems that it won't be a bad year after all.
Muramasa: The Demon Blade (I really love its art style), The Conduit and Monster Hunter 3 are must buy imho, but there are many other games that look quite inspiring.

Kororinpa is a better game, IMO. It's use 100% of the tilt sensor of Wiimote. If you rotate 90 degree the Wiimote, the scenario will rotate in 90 degree too. The possibility of rotation of the Kororimpa would be impossible in another control.

This year I decide to make some good changes in this topic, to start with a new layout and others new ideas that I will implement later.

But I have a problem: This thread research to his limit and the first topic only support 3 more games. For that reason, I will start a new thread with 3 posts reserved in the first page for the future updates and things I like to implement. Everything to make that the better thread a Wii owner can see.

Moderators, please, Lock this thread, I will make a new one soon.
