Games Wii Look Forward to

March 13, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

2008 was a rather underwhelming year in terms of the Wii games that were released, things are going to get better in 2009. Or at least, it's looking that way. Here are three three games that hopes are will take true advantage of the Wii's hardware this.

Punch-Out!

What is it about revivals? The film industry are doing it and so is the game industry. But we can let Punch-Out off, as it is well worthy of a remake. The last time Punch-Out!! was released was in the form of Super Punch-Out on the Super Nintendo.

The games thrive off of action involving well-timely executed attacks. The older games sent you through a series of fights and boss battles, where each person had their own timing you had to figure out. An obvious upgrade in the graphics is present with a cartoony, cell-shade look that is not only sure to please fans of the franchise, but also hook outsiders who will soon want to give it a try.

The original Punch-Out remains both unique and fun to this day, so how can a remake by the best of developers go wrong?

MadWorld

MadWorld is one of the most unique games to appear on any system this generation. It is also one of the most violent, but that's a good thing. One of the most unique aspects of MadWorld is its graphics, everything is in Black and White, except for the blood and guts. Yes, it's that kind of game...

When your character can make a chainsaw come out of his arm, you know that a gore fest is what's in store. The action is very stylized and combo-oriented. Whilst battling it out with enemies in urban areas, you can deal all kinds of damage, from shoving stop signs through enemies' heads, to reaching inside someone's chest and ripping his heart out. Meanwhile, a humorous voice announces each move as you perform it, commentating as if it were some kind of football game.

Definitely not for the faint hearted, but MadWorld's presentation and gameplay has us curious...

The Conduit

Not many developers' would argue that the Wii is, technologically, inferior to the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The Conduit developers, High Voltage, believe differently. they believe the Wii is the better and want to prove it with The Conduit.

The Conduit is a first-person sci-fi shooter, with gorgeous detail. High Voltage has put a lot into this game, and it's showing. The game will not only have an extended singleplayer campaign, but a 16-player multiplayer online mode.

The Conduit is certainly taking the Wii to the limit and is definitely worth checking out.

3 Great WiiWare Games

February 27, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

WiiWare is Nintendo's equivalent to Sony's PlayStation Networks and Microsoft's Xbox Live Marketplace. Most of the content on WiiWare is re-releases of Nintendo classics, but is also a platform through which developers can easily distribute cheap games over an internet connection. WiiWare is in its infancy compared to its counterparts, but there are some true gems that are available that are unlike anything you'll find on the other networks.

#3: Gyrostarr

Unlike anything you have seen before, Gyrostarr is a simple yet engaging racing game that provides up to 50 levels of gameplay, which makes it a worthwhile addition to anyone’s library.

Gyrostarr is a space-shooter and a racer wrapped up in one. Prepare to be blown away, as you select your ship and then sent blasting down a tunnel of space tubing. The objective of the game is to use the ship's grapple are to collect power orbs before you reach the tunnel's gate, to open it. As you fly through each tunnel, there are plenty of power-ups that can also be grabbed with the grapple, as well as enemies that will need to be shot down.

Gyrostarr includes a singleplayer mode and a co-operative mode with a twist, where players are competing for the highest score, but still have to help each other out to power the gate and progress. Gyrostarr is one of those unmissable and unique games that must be played.

#2: LostWinds

The Wii is most famouse for its unique and simplistic motion controls. WiiWare games take advantage of this new control system and provide new ways to play games. LostWinds is no different. The story involves Toku, a boy who meets a wind god named Enril. Together they set out to save their village from an impending doom. The most unique thing about LostWinds is you control Toku with the Nunchuk, and Enril with the Wii Remote. Swishing the Wii remote makes Enril produce blasts of wind that help the platforming aspect of the game, allowing Toku to reach ledges that you wouldn't believe he could reach.

This mechanic is used throughout the puzzles in LostWind, and combined with the gorgeous graphics and sceneray your are sure to be blown away.

#1: World of Goo

World of Goo is possibly the most weirdest yet addictive games available through WiiWare. The objective of the game is to stick together blobs of living goo to form a path to pipes that suck them in. The remaining blobs roll over the makeshift path to their destination. Traps and dangers litter the levels, which must be avoided. World of Goo is very reminiscent of Lemmings, but with its very own bizarre, cute and quirky style.

World of Goo is an instant classic and is one WiiWare game you should get above all others.
