schuelma said:Has GI ever had a Wii exclusive on its cover?
Father_Brain said:That would have nothing to do with GI system bias, and everything to do with the facts that (a) Nintendo itself is incredibly secretive, with rare exceptions being GI's Prime 2 and Red Steel exclusives, and EGM's Twilight Princess "Revolution" cover, and (b) there really have been very few third-party Wii exclusives that are high-profile enough to justify a cover story in a Western magazine.

Indeed.AceBandage said:Well, there's also the fact that this is Warren Spector's baby, and revealing this kind of game to the HD crowd as a Wii exclusive would certainly elicit a bigger reaction than revealing it in Nintendo Power.
We've since been told that it's a Wii-exclusive where you paint your way through levels using the Wii Remote. This 'painting your way' involves you drawing, etching and erasing whole or parts of levels as you go. Capcom's Okami immediately springs to mind but we've not got enough info to go on to make any kind of informed judgement.
As for the story, we've also been told that it'll be based around very old and/or forgotten Disney characters who are out to get their revenge on Mickey, presumably because they're jealous of all his fame and fortune. We Googled 'early Disney characters' and found that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit returned a lot of hits. A bit before even CVG's time all that though.
Wait, I'm a troll because I want it on a platform that it could look its best on? Get over yourself.timetokill said:It's a troll camp, you know that, right?
Personally I can't wait for details on this game to come out. Whatever platform, I don't care, I just can't wait to see it. There were beautiful games pre-HD, and there have been beautiful games post-HD, despite not being in HD. If this is in fact a Wii exclusive, I hope it's gorgeous and plays incredibly well.
Just can't wait for any information at all. The concept art is great -- now let's hear about the game.
I don't remember saying "OMG! IF IT'S NOT HD IT SUCKS!" nor agitating anyway. Fuck off.AceBandage said:If they are, it's only because the "OMG! IF IT'S NOT HD IT SUCKS!" crowed agitated them.
Firestorm said:Well those links seem to say Wii. I do hope the art style is similar to the amazing images in the concept work. Yeah, I didn't pay attention to this topic much at all before because I thought the project was scrapped. I'm at Stage 1 of this whole thing now =PWait, I'm a troll because I want it on a platform that it could look its best on? Get over yourself.

i'm a bit conflicted. the visuals would be better on hd systems, the painting stuff would be cooler on wii + platformers sell better on it
HD for kids should really just go away. If it's not 60fps at 1080p, it might as well be a Wii game, so I sure don't mind saving $10.AltogetherAndrews said:Of course, with the latest tech from MS and Sony, we could get that stuff and crazy awesome HD visuals. HD generation, fuck yeah!
