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.
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
