A Cool 'Demo' From Nintendo

Forums - Gaming Discussion - A Cool 'Demo' From Nintendo

Hopefully everyone has had a chance to enjoy the Puzzle Quest demo over at GameDaily. And if you haven't, you best be clicking on that first link.

Anyway, Nintendo is sponsoring a great little web game called Chick Chick Boom:

http://www.chick-chick-boom.com/boom.html

The game works best with a mouse so those with laptops may want to hunt one down. (Nintendo also encourages Wii users to give it a try.) I would love to see this game come out for the DS. It's a great demo of what innovative controls can achieve.

Enjoy!

[Edit: This doen't work with the Wii due to the version of Flash being used.]

chick chick boom boom? I grew out of those games when I was 11!  It was everything I grew to hate nintendo about, it was overly simplistic and childish. It takes no real thought and will have a replay value of 3 seconds due to the fact it's the same thing over and over...No depth at all. .1/10 stars. Horrible.



Predicting the Future - 360 Will get to 11 Million in the USA this year!!

Predicting the Future - Wii will NOT win this gen in America!!


Prediciting the Future - The PS3 will pass the Wii by 2009!!

(sigh)

Did you even try it?  I doubt it.  Instead, you decided that since it was sponsored by Nintendo and had a cute name you were going to publically bash it.  Back to your Gears of War, Fanboy.

Steve: how is this fun?  i'm just trying it on my PC and seems like it's just tracing lines.  explain what makes it fun???

 PS360N64PSXBOX: huh?  so much animosity.  a sign of maturity is knowing how to appreciate what others appreciate.    

although i'll admit that in forums if you don't express youself that way people won't know your preferences and believes.  so i guess just ignore what i just said.



the Wii is an epidemic.

All I did was state I didn't like it and why, Steve attacked me for not liking it and assumed I never played it. So your comment towards me should be toward him. He didn't appreciate the fact I didn't like, I couldn't care less if he likes it.

You have a lot of anger to work out. That said, I do agree with you that this game is far too simple to warrant more than 5 minutes worth of attention, but 90% of any games you'll find on the internet is a "cool demo" so I don't think I'm going to fault it too much.


I will say this: a lot of developers seem to think innovation alone will carry games. It won't.

Games need to be FUN, something that they can be while still being innovative, but most devs don't seem to grasp this.

Luckily, we have games like Godfather: Blackhand to really demonstrate this.

If friggin' EA, the former kings of rehashing, can pull off an original, responsive and enjoyable control scheme which uses innovation to make the game more fun, then no dev has any excuse not to do the same.


"I mean, c'mon, Viva Pinata, a game with massive marketing, didn't sell worth a damn to the "sophisticated" 360 audience, despite near-universal praise--is that a sign that 360 owners are a bunch of casual ignoramuses that can't get their heads around a 'gardening' sim? Of course not. So let's please stop trying to micro-analyze one game out of hundreds and using it as the poster child for why good, non-1st party, games can't sell on Wii. (Everyone frequenting this site knows this is nonsense, and yet some of you just can't let it go because it's the only scab you have left to pick at after all your other "Wii will phail1!!1" straw men arguments have been put to the torch.)" - exindguy on Boom Blocks

Good job moron! Your ignorant fanboy ass assumed just because I hate it means I never played it. Well I did, and if you read my comment instead of flaming like a fucking retard you would have seen I DID play it! Drawing shapes? SHITTY! I hate the game, you need to grow up and accept the fact some do or just fuck off! Immature moron! Bouncing chicks and drawing over and over is redundant! Now grow up moron!

Man I hate Nintendo Fanboys! I don't even HAVE A NEXT GEN SYSTEM! Shameful that you are allowed to post here. Shameful.


Not really worth it, but I'll respond anyway.  I don't know where you get off saying that I'm ignorant considering what you just typed.  F-this and insult-that.  Not a really intelligent reply.

You may not enjoy the game.  That is fine.  We're all entitled to our own opinions.  But I believe the game does have strategy and replay value though the early demo levels are kind of easy to beat.  The game is along the lines of a real-time Worms.  The more accurate your drawings, the stronger your attack or defense.  And you need to manage when you chose those actions based upon your opponents actions and the weather events in the game.

1. Pot kettle black. Check your reply to me and relish in the hypocrisy.

2. I know how to play, it has a learning curve if 5 seconds. I got that right away and felt it was way too easy and had a poor replay value. I got bored of the simple drawings that anybody could do, and with the fact that is all you do. I need a bit more depth than that. If nintendo stuck to Zelda types puzzles it would be fine, as they require thought and are different the deeper you get into the game. This is just the same basic thing over and over and gets old fast. For me anyway.
