erm. nvm I don't want to get in this....

 



Around the Network

I buy "hardcore" games for the Wii all the time. But I learned that on-rails shooters can be great but they are usually short games.

I read the reviews and I am gonna buy it for sure, just not for 50 bucks, when it hits 30 (my sweet spot for this kind of games) it's going to my collection.

I know that a lot of Wii owners are in the same position as me. This type of games can be great fun but you don't pay 50 dollars for them.



Games on rails take a train ride to flopville. That's how it's always been



Hm, I think there are more people discussing the sales of DSE than there is people playing it...

Why are so many non-Wii gamers whining about DSE? Unless you bought the game why care so damn much about it? If you think it's a game that deserves more attention and better sales, then buy it yourselves it or shut up...for devil's sake...

Actually, that's not true at all. Ghost Squad and HotD 2+3 Return evidently did very, VERY well. Umbrella Chronicles sold roughly double what Capcom expected. Overkill has turned a profit already, and presumably it continues to do so. I'll be surprised if DC doesn't do well too, albeit not as well as UC. The only light-gun games I can think of this generation that flopped are Dead Space, The Mad Dog game, and Time Crisis 4.

That's the truth.

I am shocked because people who actually do buy the game seem to enjoy it but for some reason it isn't doing good at all. Perhaps word of mouth might end up positive but it'll still be a flop. Perhaps one of the reasons this game didn't do so well is because of the timing of it. There have been some decent Wii games either releasing or will release over the next few months and this game could have just been completely overlooked due to New Super Mario Bros and other games that have been hyped.



Hey guys, this is really important. There's something we really need to talk about. There was this game Dead Space, on the PS3 and 360, and it almost made money, but they spent all the money on making a cartoon and tons of commercials, so they weren't happy with the sales. It's the Wii's fault that Dead Space isn't a profitable franchise on any system.



Uh-huh and when Metacritic gives out stellar awards to Wii games I guess it's not stupid then?

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

You know you will get spanked for this

Rubang is being consistant at least. He hates Metacritic regardless of if they give a game anything positive or not.

By metacritic scale, this game is the equivalent of a 92! :P
