Ign said:
Wii Fit has launched, and Matt has his final verdict on the exercise software. We also found out what this MadWorld game is all about. And two new WiiWare games were released this week. All this, and much, much more is waiting for you in this 10th anniversary special.


Theres a wicked echo when some of them speak.

Summary Complete:

WiiFit:
-Video review from Matt's house coming later this week. Enjoy Stalkers.
-No multi player mode of any kind.

We Ski:
-Not so good.
-You can play 4 player mode but only one person can use the balance board
-The mini-game in WiiFit is better than We Ski.

~Konami Event~

~Rock Revolution DS
-More of a Rhythm game. You pick from one of four instruments.
-4 licensed songs were there
-Not so good, its just not a very good game

~International Track and Field DS.
-Really good, challenging.
-A lot of fast motioning with the stylus.

~Castlevania DS
-Was there but wasn't playable
-Wii Connectivity was confirmed during the interview, basically.
-No idea if there is a full Wii game yet.

Band Brothers DX:
-Pass me through system with a Wii speaker channel. Bozon's Sauce is message boards.
-Hope that channel is not the one Castlevania DS is using

Conduit :
-638 Comments on the Video, which only used to happen with GTA caliber games
-Craig "Unless Nintendo Picks it up, it will sell 5 copies"
-Bozon "Graphics are art design could use some work"
-They all agree the game needs a huge marketing budget
-Sounds like they could announce a publisher any day

Mad World:
-Got to see a 6 minute demo in San Fran.
-The gore in the game is way over the top
-Thinks it'll get an M, they think ESRB won't AO it since the extreme gore is comical
-Early '09

Infinite Line DS :
-2d art for character interactions
-3d for the space stuff
-Haven't seen video, no gameplay shots
-Space Scifi setting.

~Sega Event~

~Sonic Unleashed:
-Frame rate is all over the place, and they are shooting for 30fps.
-You can do a drift turn with a boost at the end
-You can do side dodges without losing speed
-Looks "Beautiful"
-Very European level design. Back ground textures are nice.
-Sounds like PS360 is the lead sku being developed by Sonic Team alone
-Sega says Wii version Dimps is doing all the Day time levels, but Sonic team is still developing. Rep also said that other studios may be involved, but are trying to downplay it.
-Day time levels and Night time Levels are focus of the game (sonic and were-sonic)
-Sounds like all the Secret Rings Wii-Mote mechanics are gone. This one is Chuck+Mote and Gamecube controller.

~Sonic and the Dark Brotherhood:
-"A let down" Craig and Bozon.
-Gameplay doesn't really feel right. A lot of slow to fast to slow.
-3d platforming in 2d is really weird.
-Kind of random battles, turn based stuff. Special attacks are down like elite beat agents, just not as good as EBA.

Sales Age:
May Predictions
-Matt - Wii 800k - 360 high 400k - Ps3 high 200k
-Bozon - Thinks PS360 will be around 250k highest, with Ps3 a little lead. Wii low 700k maybe high 600k
-Craig - PS360 twice of what they did
WiiFit Vs GTA media exposure?
-Today show, Ellen show already had Wiifit its only a matter of time for Oprah!
-They talk about Wiifit's potential incredible legs
Microsoft Ten Million Mark PR
-They forgot to mention Wii's at 9.5 million.
-Think Nintendo already has the PR with "Fastest to 10 million" laying in wait for some time in the next two weeks

~Ubisoft Event ~
-Ign has exclusive sometime in the next week
-Jokes about the "Nintendo like quality they showed there" Hint:
Not Nintendo like Quality
-One that could be pretty cool, great name, 7 Z's in the name. Could have Potential. (don't know if this is one game or just jokes, plenty of jokes about titles ending in Z's)

~WiiWare Policy Interview Should be coming this week
~Guitar Hero DS blog coming this week

Matt C Hype Title :
-Soon, an exclusive Zapper title for Wii that you may/will want will be announced
-Bozon impression of Gaf and how they react to Matt C's hyped games that do not exist

Critter Round up:
-Not Very Challenging
-$10, Overpriced according to Demon.
-Graphics are bad.

Star Soldier R:
-Bozon "decent"
-Comes with a Warning that notes its a time based game which shuts the game off after either 2 minutes or 5 minutes
-Highest Score for each mode gets uploaded to Nintendo Wifi.
-The story set up doesn't work with the game


Reader Q & A :

Q: Conduit Trailer, Death match Authorized, does this mean we're finally going to get one ?
A: Matt will confirm that by the end of this week. They think thats what it means.

Q: Favorite series/game/how would you improve it on a Nintendo Console ?
A: Matt: Metroid/Prime/control Samus Ship, Craig: Starfox/Snes/Keep it On-rails, Bozon: Zelda/Lttp/perfect, Damon: Zelda/MM/Wants MM/WW hybrid,

Q: Disaster '08?
A: Maybe not according to the rumors, before rumors would have said yes

Q: How long Conduit in production?
A: Early, perhaps pre-alpha. Don't have full levels yet

Q: Shenmue 1 & 2 Wii ports?
A: They don't have any idea.

Q:Lack of Dr. Mario WTF!!?

A: Mario Galaxy, Unanimous.

Q: Capcom Gamer's Day?
A: Next week in Vegas. Only know of Off the record stuff to expect.

Q: Worthy franchise to get the Lego treatment? ?

A: Not going to happen.

Q:Mad World Just a stylized Manhunt ?
A: Umm, no.

I haven't played Wii Fit yet to compare, but I didn't think that We Ski was that bad at all.

Who's the idiot who said the Conduit would only sell 5 copies on the Wii?

Anyway, they say Ubisoft has more shit lined up for the Wii. Simply amazing.

Haven't listened to the podcast yet, but there's at least one multiplayer game in Wii Fit. You can go "running" with 2 players.

The jogging in Wii Fit is so damn stupid, seriously just go for a REAL run with or without a friend. But hey if it helps even 1 person I suppose good on them... but really, going for a real run outside in the sun is sooooooo much more satisfying.

It sold *fairly* well in both Europe and Japan. Not sure about the US, but most soccer games don't do that well in the US anyways. In the UK it has been in the Top 10 games for a good 6-7 weeks, though.

PES Wii has been in the European top 10 for like 9 weeks now.
Not sure what they're talking about.

They seem excited about the Zapper game so that must mean it's big right?

House of the Dead 4 Wii?

I think it's sold about as good as one would expect considering it came out 4 months after all the other versions.

I think 09 will do fantastically well.

Interest is nearly dead. Secret Rings should have been the base. Sega = utter fail.

They actually say that the Zapper game is a "new" game so it's may just be Umbrella Chronicles 2... meh.

More positive comments on a Sonic Team developed title than a Bioware developed title? :eek:

As one who has an unnatural amount of love for Secret Rings, I'm disappointed but I'm not willing to say the style won't return for another Wii outing. I would've preferred had they just gone for an original title whilst the PS360 games get another one (like Secret Rings/Hedgehog), but I'm still holding out hope... a bit. :-\

I mean, Secret Rings just sold so damn much, surely they'll bank on that, right? ...Right?

I fuckin' love Umbrella Chronicles, I'll take it :D

Bozon seemed pretty excited for it, and while he enjoyed RE:UC he certainly didn't love it. I would bet on a SEGA light gun game.

Please people, stop saying stuff like this. Sonic 3 & Knuckles should have been the base. Just lock Sega in a room and force them to play it over and over and over until they figure it out.

That could take forever. Adding polish to Secret Rings 2 wouldn't.

But turning the Sonic series into a 3D on-rails platformer definitely isn't the right path for the series. Just because Secret Rings was better than the other 3D Sonic crap Sega has made doesn't mean it's the best direction for the series. Unfortunately, judging from what we've seen of Sonic Unleashed so far, Sega still doesn't remember how to make a 2D Sonic game either :(
