The lights are on
people everywhere say that the wii will die soon D: are these rumors true is wati would like to know because does this mean no more zelda or conduit for wii "ps conduit 2s story was horrible" or call of duty but i guess it would be expected because very few people still seem to like it even the GI guys dont anymore but granted its not their falt that the wiis games havent been good more average exept for "skyword sword cant wait till i get" but if you guys have any knowledge about acoming titles or anything wii plz leave them in the comments.
Well the Wii
Well the Wii was never really alive to begin with, unless you count all the stupid first party shovelware and party games........ I don't however. It was a working console sure, but if you saw any "life" in the console it was the few really good titles like Mario galaxy (1 and 2) and arguably skyward sword. The Wii was about as "alive" as a brain dead person is, sure they breath and need to eat, but they're really just a shell.
Some of the good third party games showed a flicker of reaped life but they games were for the most part ignored by the fanboys who passed on them for the next Mario party, or utilization of the wiimote gimmick.
As far as your request for good new titles, I'd recommend looking back and picking up any third party games you might not have tried yet, or even herd of.
Thelizardman is right, the Wii wasn't really alive unless there was new first party game or a new Wii [insert activity here]
As for upcoming titles Mario Party 9, Rhythm Heaven Fever and Xenoblade seem to be the biggest releases coming soon. I personally recommend Xenoblade if you like rpgs and going back and playing old games
Why are you guy's double posting? Anyways, obviously The lizardman and guy after him have not followed gaming these past 5 years or so, so we will just skip over what they said like you would over some runny eggs.
The Wii is about to have a decent year. Probably much better than it did last year. Rhythm Heaven is out, Poke Park 2 is coming, Mario Party 9 is coming, Xenoblade will be here in a few weeks, The Last Story is about to hit Europe, plus Hulu Plus just came to the wii, e-shop is still getting some hits, and Japan seems to be holding as well as usual.
Then to answer the rediculousness of the other two, ummm....who dominated the last 5 years? Yeah, never alive. Right!
I totally agree with spurgeonryan, Wii is the monster Xbox and PS wish they could be. That's a pretty strong opinion on my part, but its true. Third party, liscenses, it doesn't matter. Wii has won.
Just because a few people quit playing or never really played the Wii, doesn't mean the whole world has. And if the Wii dies out for any reason, it will be because the Wii U rules the market.
Monster Hunter Tri is really good if you haven't played that. Red Steel II, great if you got Wiimotion Plus. I mean, there are tons of great games for Wii. Black Ops. Resident Evil series. It depends on what your tastes are. You just gotta know what your looking for. Pop in an old GameCube game if you got the controllers. Get a classic off of the Virtual Console. Try a WiiWare third party game! What alot of people don't realize, is that there is online gameplay too! There is a fighting game called Capcom Vs. Some-Japanese-liscense that's alot like Capcom Vs. Marvel 2 that you can play online, which is pretty much flawless gameplay from what I heard.
So yea, the Wii is alot like Tinkerbell. If you don't think happy thoughts, she will die. Its all up to you.
thx a bunch guys! both have decent opinions but you all are right to an extent the wii has had a bit of a falling wen in comes to third partys but it doesent mean it doesent have them! thx a bunch guys and i think ill keep playen my wii
Well let me reiterate, the Wii made a lot of money, bit it was no more alive then elmo or big bird. Sesame street may make more money and ratings, but the discovery Chanel is way more educational. The same can be said for nintendo and xbox/ps3.
I see the point your trying to make, but a better analogy than seasame street<discovery would be something like Toyota Camary Hybrid < BMW M5. For instance, sure, Black Ops works great on the Wii and the motion sensing FPS aspect is totally unreal, but the graphics, memory, and online capabilities are so much better on PS3!! See what I am saying? And how many more Camarys do you see on the street than M5s? Lots.
I only know two things about cars, jack andshit lol. Sesame street was the first thing that came to mind so I went with it.
"people everywhere say that the wii will die soon D:"
Hate to break it to ya', but the Wii has been dead for a while.
I don't think the Wii was dead in the first place, but it seems that it will die soon. Nintendo wants the wii go out with a great lists of games. Going out with a Bang.
Sure the Wii will die soon. The Wii U should be out late September-late October. But it is still interesting that this year will probably be a little more busy for the Wii than last year was. When people say "Dead", they are basically right. Nintendo totally miss-managed last year. They came off a great and surprising Holiday with the Wii only to put out "Lost in Shadow" and hardly anything else until the mediocre Conduit 2. The 3DS brought nothing to the table and the Wii U was a let down. They just tried to do too much and ended up doing nothing last year.
I wouldn't say so, Nintendo Wii sales are very strong and like the 3DS...time doesnt really effect it. Biggest issue imo is the content (games) offered through the system.
If they keep em coming, people will keep buying the system.
