This is an general discussion for games, product, peripheals, etc regarding the Nintendo Wii. Discuss all about it here. Of course you can make other threads regarding the Wii's games, product, peripheals and other stuff, but this is just a general discussion.

Really wish I have Tatsunko Vs. Capcom. I was dying in anticapation for that game. Oh well, I'm probably going to get a job in a few weeks, so prehaps I can scrap up some cash to buy the game soon after.

Not to be a noob, but what is LW2? I will say that Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is a brillant game. I love the game with a passion and is my favorite RPG game so far. I'm also looking forward to Metroid: Other M.

Let me clarify

Post  Adminassassin on Sun Mar 28, 2010 9:56 pm

LW2 is LostWinds 2.
I REALLY enjoyed the first one, but the second one is supposed to be even better and longer.

Thanks for informing me anyway. Hopefully, I'll be able to understand it next time I come across that initial.

I'm replaying Metroid Prime. Not the Trilogy, the Gamecube version.

I just raided a space pirate base, killed my first metroid in game, and now I'm stuck on a boss battle against a giant rock monster.

Never heard of a giant rock monster before. I mean, they've only been in millions of different games. Razz

Haven't played an actual Wii game recently though. -gets shot-

CANNOT WAIT FOR LAST STORY!

Post  soaring_wings on Sat Apr 03, 2010 6:38 pm

I'm really pumped for The Last Story. I'm so glad Sakaguchi decided to put it on the Wii. This will be the first console game that I shall pick up on Day 1. Very Happy

I haven't been playing my Wii much (and all other consoles), but I still need to finish Radiant Dawn. Kind of wish the support conversations were better and the game wasn't broken into parts, but overall still a great game (better than Shadow Dragon at least...)

There are actually a lot of games that I'm looking forward to get. I'll list some of them:

Monster Hunter Tri
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Zelda Wii 2
Metroid: Other M
The Last Story
Xenoblade
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (Depending if they don't mess up the Wii version)
Epic Mickey

And more.

Nintendoh Weee!

Post  Donth8 on Sat Apr 03, 2010 8:13 pm

I almost forgot about Epic Mickey.

Also, the Prince of Persia game that's coming out is actually called Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. It's being developed for the Wii, 360, PS3, and PSP. It's still a part of the Sands of Time timeline.

I'm really looking forward to SMG2 and Metroid: Other M but I doubt I'll have the money to buy them. pig

I'm not interested in Galaxy 2. Thats what I have Galaxy 1 for. Razz
Besides Other M, the other Wii title I really want is Trauma Team. Excited about all it offers and its now only $40...when it comes out in May.
/pouts at waiting an extra month

Trauma Team

Post  soaring_wings on Sun Apr 04, 2010 11:46 am

I just love Atlus. Pricing Trauma Team at 40 was a good idea. I just might pick it up because of the price.
I only have the first game (which I have only played very little of), so I'm really interested in how it works on the Wii.

btw: I hope Nintendo hurries up and starts up the golden discount line that they have in Japan. I would be much more willing to give a few other games a try if they were around 20 dollars. (What can I say, I'm a bargain hunter! xD )

Same here. I buy a lot of games, but I rarely pay full price.

Some good news! It seems like more companies are going to be pricing Wii games at the 39.99 price point. Arc Raise Fantasia is now available for pre-order at Amazon for that price. I'm hoping that nice pre-order bonus goes up on Amazon.ca with that nice price because I'm really tempted but the 10 dollar shipping fee is really deterring me right now.

I also hope Ignition does a better job with Fantasia. I've heard their translations were not up to par in Lux-Pain (which caused me to pass over the game, but now I'm thinking of picking it up again) and Muramasa.

That's sweet news, I'd almost forgotten about that one and I love me my RPGs.

I kind of feel responsible since I mentioned it, but I came across an article on Siliconera about Arc Raise Fantasia's voice acting. To put it bluntly, it is horrible. To see for yourself, check out the article below with embedded videos:

http://www.siliconera.com/2010/04/20/oh-dear-arc-rise-fantasias-dub/

It really is too bad because it looks like a solid RPG. I'm still thinking of picking it up but for a bargain price (20-25 dollars).

@Donth: I love that satisfied feeling when you know that money was well spent. Smile

@Admin: no problem. I'm really upset that Marvelous gave the right to Ignition instead of XSeed. Ignition seems to be ruining a lot of games.

First Lux-Pain, which I heard the translation was riddled with weird sentences and typos. Which might be bearable in most genres, but this is a visual novel!!

Second, I heard that Muramasa's translation was very dry and there were lines that weren't even translated.

Third, Nostalgia seems to suffer the same fate as Muramasa in that the translation was too literal and dry. Although, considering it wasn't as bad as the two above and Fantasia, this one seems to be the only passable localization by Ignition.

And now ARF joins the list of games ruined by Ignition. Damn Ignition, don't you dare touch another game I'm interested it!

Muramasa was a little confusing in its script, although I think that's more because of the abundance of Japanese names, etc. and how the story would only kind of make sense to its native audience (who heard the tales of the Red Ogre and the Blue Ogre, etc.) to begin with. Razz

I had no problems with Nostalgia, really liked it.

So they translated all the text/spoken words? I've heard people saying that the voices were saying something else. :/
And it wasn't dry? well, I guess Muramasa wouldn't be too bad. I'm pretty familiar with Japanese culture, did my own research plus anime, so it shouldn't be too difficult for me. Actually, I'm just a folklore, mythology nut in general. xD
Ogre = Oni right?

My only reservation would be whether I would like this game. I didn't quite like Odin Sphere, but that's because I thought it was too button mashy and repetitive. It was pretty though and the story was interesting, so I do plan on giving it another try.

Yeah, this looks like their only decent localization. Price tag is keeping me away atm, but I do plan to pick this one up sooner or later.
