I was watching X-play & they mentioned just Ps3 & Xbox titles i wouldn't be surprised if this Year Nintendo Blew everyone away & take #1 spot for best Games Shown on June 2nd. I mean Halo.. (sorry is getting very old fast) & God of War (sony just says oh were doing only 3 thats it no more) Does anyone agree? its just sequel after sequel just like Reggie said at 07 Conference There only making it just a little bit better.

Everyone knows that G4 hates Nintendo

G4, isn't that a horrible cable TV channel in the States where they interrupt films every 10min. and constantly squeeze the program currently playing so they can show a banner ad on the bottom for some other tv show they're going to have?

Are we really criticizing the other systems for sequels and praising Nintendo for Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3, Zelda Twilight Princess, Excite Bots, Animal Crossing City Folk, etc.? Sure the "Wii" series is new, but Wii Sports and Wii Fit are already getting sequels. Sony just released Infamous, which isn't too shabby, and has games like MAG and Fat Princess in its future.

I don't watch G4 though (what a horrible excuse for TV, even at TV's low standards), so I'm just commenting on the sequel part of the original post.

Oh god, not more mindless fanboyism. How is it that a network hates Nintendo? True, I only watch G4 on occasion to see Xplay, but I don't see what you're basing this on. And as Adam said, sequels have hit Nintendo pretty much just as hard as the other consoles.

I haven't watched G4 in a while, but I've never found their Wii reviews to be overly negative. I usually find them to be pretty well balanced. At best, I'd say I have an occasional difference of opinion with them.

However, it is important to remember that they're part of the "system" of hollywood-style gaming that's developed over the last decade. They rarely review games that aren't major blockbusters. Since we haven't seen too many blockbuster games recently, it probably feels like they're not reviewing anything for the Wii.

I agree with the Fox. That's blatant fanboyism right there. Adam pretty much took the words right out of my mouth. Nintendo's most-hyped games right now are Pikmin 3, Wii Zelda, Wii Sports Resort, and Mario Galaxy 2. Guess what? They're all sequels. Sure, there's tons of sequels coming out this year on other consoles too, but there's also a bunch of new IPs coming up such as infamous, Saboteur, Prototype, and Brutal Legend. I don't take G4's stuff to heart anyway. I only watched that channel for Xplay and the occaisional Attack of the Show. Don't watch it anymore though, since G4 On Demand was taken off when Time Warner changed, and I'm not allowed to have digital cable...

I hate G4. Case closed?

Maybe not hate, but gaming television is a pretty big joke. Don't waste your time.

I watch Xplay all the time and have never observed any bias towards one console over another.

You have to think about the audience. G4 is mostly for adult males, like Spike, and therefore caters to the 360 crowd. HD visuals, tons of shooting etc. Most Wii games, even the ones considered hardcore, tend to still be intended for a very broad audience (male, female, young, old) and that is simply not what G4, or most mainstream media outlets, cater to. They cater to the so called "true" hardcore fanboys.

Does it? Adults really watch a TV channel devoted to video games? As someone who has never bothered with such a silly concept, I'm genuinely curious. The concept is almost as outdated as video game magazines, so I'm surprised anyone but kids watch it since they have monitored and otherwise limited access to computers for such information, not owning their own.

this would only be a problem if i actually watched G4 for anything besides the occasional episode of Cops. i wish they'd picked up Code Monkeys for a third season. :/

They discussed only Microsoft and Sony games because Nintendo has been very under wraps about what they have to show. That's my take. Not bias as much as doing a show with what they have and without speculation.

not a big fan of Munn. I miss Sarah Lane.

G4 has (had?) Ninja Warrior, so I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. back when i did watch the channel, I didn't really notice any bias, but nintendo hasn't really had much to write home about (i remember sitting through last year's god-awful E3), and the others have, so theres only so much they can do.

True but they could have at least said something like hey lets try to think of some titles Nintendo most likely will come out with but nope not even that & its sad Cause Wii Owners should be rejoicing i Mean we got Conduit Dead Space The Grinder Cursed Mountain Cod Mw2 NMH Desperate Struggle Tasunko vs Capcom Marvel vs Capcom 2 Thats just the Start :3 & Better be GB VC for DSi.

@Tails86: I don't think that TV shows will willingly give up costly air-time to speculation when they actually have fact to talk about. that being said some of the games you've listed (please use commas, they're really helpful) have been confirmed for a while, so that's inexcusable.

Sorry about that i was typing out of frustration ^^". But I actually found out they did actually talk with Sega about The Conduit. So atleast they aren't leaving Wii in the Dust.
