Yes, eventually it was ported, but Nintendo funded the game heavily. It was among the big Capcom Five for GameCube.Rainbow_Dashtruction said:Just for reference, Resident Evil 4 was eventually put on PC and PS2 as well. Because compared to how well it should have sold with such a big IP, it sold terribly on Gamecube. Still, I have to admit the controls on the wii version were pretty damn good...Robert Kalmar said:You just called Metroid Prime 3, Xenoblade Chronicles, Pandora's Tower, The Last Story, Sin and Punishment 2, Resident Evil 4 (it was originally a GC exclusive) shit? Man... you must live a very sad life :/ Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story is regarded as the best JRPGs in the last generation...Rainbow_Dashtruction said:Anyway, Nintendo tends to start every single generation except the Wii by pushing a small bit into more mature games, then immediately abandoning that and just hoping it'll stay afloat. In the end, it causes its ratio of kiddy to mature to be around 12:1, and that 1 is always 90% shit. I'll admit Sony doesn't really do it much either in the reverse, but when they do, they really tend to succeed quite consistently Knack aside.
EDIT: Few more words: Playstation All Stars Battle Royale. 'nuff said i think. But i don't really know who was the target demography of that one... Maybe no one?
The rest? You basically just listed nearly the entire list of the Wiis more mature games. Like, every one. Regardless, only Metroid Prime 3 is actually Nintendo.
Those JRPGs I cant argue against, I haven't played them, although the only stuff I've heard about Xenoblade Chronicles was an above average JRPG. Kinda, Final Fantasy X levels of good. So worth playing, but not amazing. And anyway, there was a ton of great JRPGs on the PS3, if you make sure to ignore FFXIII.
Nope, Monolith Soft is a first party studio since Xenoblade, so it's Nintendo now. Also, i think The Last Story was published by Nintendo. And i didn't. I didn't mentioned Red Steel, Mad World, No More Heroes, Star Wars game, CoD games, Dead Space, 3 Resident Evil games (counting RE4 Wii Edition, which is still the definitive version). Should i go on? Stop being ignorant please. Wii had mature titles, but sadly, it was largery ignored, because everyone labeled it the "shovelware" machine. Their loss...
Are we living on the same planet? Xenoblade an above average JRPG? http://www.metacritic.com/game/wii/xenoblade-chronicles. You call this critical and user reception above average? I'm feeling you are just here to troll. Did the Wii hurt your feelings as a kid or why do you hate it for no reason? It's NOT on FFX levels good. FFX was never good... The only saving grace of FFX was it's combat system and Auron. For me, only FF13 trilogy beats it as the worst FF game. Most PS3 JRPGs were above average, that DID nothing to move the genre forward. Tales of games were fun... until the PS3 was flooded with it, with absolutely nothing to differentiate themselves from each other. I got bored of Xillia and just quit it without finishing. I won't buy any Tales of games, until they take a break and make a really good one, not just rehash last year's game (Xillia 2 is even worst). Eternal Sonata is probably the best of the bunch, but you have to admit it, it didn't tried to move the genre forward a little bit. Didn't started Ni No Kuni, but it also looked pretty traditional. Nothing wrong with being traditional, but at least make it a good game... Like SMT games. I can't think of any other JRPGs that actually blew my mind away like Xenoblade and The Last Story did.
