It's Hazard Time!

They need to stop using the Wiimote just for the sake of it. If you can find a good way to implement it then fine, otherwise just use the good old fashioned buttons.
I don't think the console, its maker or the vast majority of its userbase even give a shit about violent games, just a few 12-24 year olds who want to feel mature by playing a game that has the word on the box. Meanwhile I'm looking forward to an FPS with water guns.Jursa said:Aye the Wii is a console that will try to boast about a violent game more than a animal rights activist would try to save the last tiger in the world.

Of course. The game could look and play exactly the way it does now, and so long as it wasn't a Wii exclusive he'd like it.crazyhaircut94 said:Awesome and hilarious as always, but I'm not sure whether he think's it's good or not. I think he's trying to say that he would like it if it was on something else than the Wii.
Oh yes, that's the right idea. There are developers who have been pumping out a lot of mediocre games for the Wii, so the right idea is for developers of good games to just stop trying, and let the mediocre developers run the place while they retreat to the 360 and PS3. Yeah. That makes total sense.Eternal Vigil said:Hmm...Madworld was my hope for a mature audience on the Wii, along with HOTD and the Conduit later this year.
There's so few games on it that I'd want to play on it, I think I have to agree with Yahtzee and hope developers give up on the system and focus on the other two for the mature audiences.
Exactly. Every time he reviews a Wii game, he reiterates all his nitpicks about it before getting down to the actual review. In this video alone, he spent 48 fucking seconds bashing the Wii before he even mentioned the game he was supposed to be reviewing.Ben66 said:Exactly.Hamster at Dawn said:They need to stop using the Wiimote just for the sake of it.

Anyway, Loved the humor in the review as always, but I'm finding the Wii bashing to be tiring. Yes, Yahtzee's allowed to dislike a console, but he's really starting to sound like a PS3/360 fanboy, which is somethng I figured he'd try not to be. The whole issue with the motion sensing controls seems to be subjective as well (some people find it intuitive, others find there's too much delay, etc.). Nevertheless I respect his hatred of the Wii and understand why.
Though in all actuality some of it just may be exaggerated nitpicks. Maybe he's purposely imitating Wii-haters. Who knows.
