I recently watched IGN's E3 demo of DS:E and I'd be lying if I didn't say it looks absolutely incredible. I personally enjoy rail-shooters (they keep my lazy butt from having to travel to the nearest arcade, lol) and Dead Space looks to take the idea to the next level with puzzles, interesting pacing and a lenghy quest. However, I do see how Wii only owners feel slighted with the minimal approach to design and the lack of full control. Who here likes rail-shooters? Who feels slighted? Which rail-shooter would you be more interested in, Darkside or Extraction? Heck, who do you feel is the biggest sell-out, Capcom or EA? Discuss.
Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

I like the different directions EA and Capcom are taking these games; I don't feel slighted and I don't think it cripples the games (on the contrary I have little interest in regular Resident Evil games, but the bite-sized digest version presented in Umbrella Chronicles is a game I really enjoy). I'm planning on getting both of those titles myself.

Same here Sean, but if I had to pick I'd have to say as a liscencee, EA seems to overall be short changing Wii. The only games I'm looking forward to from them are Boom Blox 2 and Dead Space: Extraction. One has already been released and is highly enjoyable. Capcom however doesn't appear to be stopping with 'beefy' Wii titles. In addition to RE you get Tatsunoku, Spyborgs, Monster Hunter 3 and likely an unannouced game from an established franchise. EA seems much more business than creativity as a lot of their games are mostly me-too or tend to be marketed toward nintendo's new audience and enthuaist with games that don't impress either. I'm hoping Need for Speed Nitro gets a little TLC but I'm not holding my breath.

Those are the two EA titles I'm looking forward to as well (I got Boom Blox Bash Party last week), but they do lean heavily on their sports franchises and I'm not too sporty so I tend to ignore them. Honestly I'm hoping for releases from them on the Virtual Console (especially C64 games) more than anything else, but it is nice to see them trying something new for a change...
