They don't, but unfortunately, everyone has it drilled into their brains that it has to be. I don't think RE4's port was cute or shallow...but that's not a sports game, either, so I guess that's not a good example.
I don't recall if I told you, Nester, but I did find SSX 3 and gave it a fair go, and did enjoy the title quite a bit. I wouldn't say it's better than 1080 Snowboarding, but it is a much better game than 1080 Avalanche was. So thanks for the (indirect) recommendation. ^_^
The new IJ game was the cover story for NP this month here's the details about the Wii game.
The game, titled Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, was rumored to be on the cover when the teaser was revealed last issue. The game retains its classic roots and features plenty of action and a story that would be fit for a movie that focuses on the biblical item. Some of the news revealed includes:
* Hold the B button and swing the Wii Remote to use Indiana Jones' whip. The whip is used for smashing obstacles, swinging over pits or grasping onto objects. (Take that Castlevania) * Gestures include right and left jabs, hooks and uppercuts. The attack will be determined by the player's own gestures with the Wii Remote and Nunchuck. (I think this means the can record our own motions for those moves for better accuracy, it has been done before in the WiiWare game Helix for better gesture recognition). * A is used to dodge, while B is used to counterattack. Z is used to grapple. * Indiana Jones can take advantage of his surroundings. He can use various different items that are simply laying around. * Indiana Jones will travel the entire world, from locations such as California, Central America, Istanbul, and Nepal. * The game takes place after the third film in 1939. * The game's villain is Magnus Voller. * Near the beginning of the game the player will have to control a plane, doing so by holding the WIi Remote upright and using it to steer. The b button is used to shoot. Other vehicles in the game include boats and motorcycles. * The Havok engine will be used to add a sense of unpredictability. * Maggie O'Malley plays the role of leading lady. * A cooperative mode is present, though LucasArts didn't reveal who the second playable character is, albeit it is someone from the series' past, and someone who all Indy fans will recognize. * The game will include a multitude of unlockable content from movie trailers, concept art, to alternate costumes and skins for Indiana Jones, as well as a classic Indiana Jones video game as well. (The IJ: Fate of Atlantis game). * A Nintendo DS version of the game is also in the works, though virtually nothing is known about it.
More details and first footage of Dead Space on Wii have been shown, it's a prequal to the original game and is being called Dead Space Extraction and it's an on rails shooter set in a first person view . . .
. . . Yeah, didn't see that coming right? I was think it would have been like RE4 Wii. The various weapons/items from DS and also a co-op mode has been added

I can't say it's entirely unreasonable, as light gun games are thriving on the Wii. Still, I imagine that people who wanted to see Dead Space on the Wii probably would've wanted something more in tune with the original game.
And while I'm glad that EA is interested in expanding more of its franchises to the Wii, I hate to say that I was never really interested in Dead Space to begin with.

And here's the magazine scan without blur. Looks tight.
I played the original once via emulation. I couldn't really get into it, mostly because I didn't know what all those different, limited beans did to ol' Blob. I remember turning him into a manhole and falling down 4 screens to my doom before I closed it.
They have also announced that the Wii versions of the REmake and RE Zero will be coming to North America for the price of $29.99 each.
In the case of The Darkside Chronicles, I'm sure it'll be a fine game like Umbrella Chronicles, but I have to say that at this point, it's rather superfluous. The Wii already has (and is getting) plenty of horror lightgun games (Umbrella Chronicles, House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return, House of the Dead: Overkill, Dead Space: Extraction).
As for REmake and Zero, they're both excellent games and I recommend them (especially the REmake), but you'd do just as well to pick up the GameCube versions for a lot cheaper at this point.
I think what people want is something more like Resident Evil 4, and if Dead Rising: Chop 'Til You Drop is the best Capcom can do on that front (and even it really isn't a new game), then I'm very disappointed.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."
May 29, 2021 11:45:28 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.
Jun 12, 2021 1:38:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.
Jun 13, 2021 16:05:31 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.
Jun 17, 2021 9:23:48 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
