Does anybody recommend Ju-on:The Grudge? Actually scratch that. I don't give a damn what anybody says about it. This looks like a tiny little Scary short but sweet(Maybe sweet is being a bit too kind?) roller coaster horror ride, and if I can score it for cheap just in time for Halloween then I'm in! B-)

I'm pretty sure I've already talked about this game. It's not really a game, but it's good nonetheless. It's a "fright simulator." It's slow as all hell, and there's no weapons, and it's so linear it's virtual on rails.

But at the same time the game has some frights at great moments. I really enjoyed this "game" overall, but if you're expecting Silent Hill or Resident Evil, you're going to be really disappointed.

Can anyone recommend the best Wii titles that fully utilize the WiiMote's capabilities? I might purchase a new copy of Elebits, does anyone disagree with this decision? Why or why not?

Zack & Wiki
Silent Hill shattered Memories
WarioWare
Kororimpa

Oh man, Elebits is absolutely fantastic. It's the perfect showcase of Wii remote controls. Yet it's only downside is that the frame rate takes a hit during the our door levels. :p It's quite magical in it's own way as well, i highly recoomend checking it out! I'd also add Wario Land Shake it! which has brillitant, incredibly intuitive and fun Tilt controls and the shaking works fantastic. B-)

Aside from Metroid Prime 3 and Zack & Wiki, WLSIt's Tilt controls combined with it's great imagination and ideas put a massive smile on my face. :D Wonderfull stuff!

If you haven't played it before on Gamecube or PS2, then yeah, you should get the Wii version. One of the best action games of last gen. Still holds up very well today.

Yes. It is in my opinion the best version of the best RE game and it should be in every good collection.

The other four RE games on the Wii are great too if you're into old school RE and railshooters. If you want old school RE you can't go wrong with Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil. Both are also available on Gamecube, but again Wii is the best version. And if you like railshooters check out the Wii exclusive Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. They're both pretty neat and have 2p co-op.

If you're interested, there are three more RE games on the Gamecube: Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica X. Unfortunately they weren't remade for the Wii (but of course you can play all Gamecube games on the Wii).

Thanks for enlightening me on that matter @SKTTR. I just ordered a new copy of RE4, luckily I purchased it for under $10 w/shipping. Don't you guys just love Amazon for this reason?

@vonseux I know right, it's an awesome price for still owning the factory seal. Any of you guys had the chance to experience Elebits? I purchased a factory sealed copy for under $14 w/shipping, it should arrive either today or tomorrow.

@WiiAboutU:

I have Eledees (Elebits). Played through it once and never bothered to play it again. It's a good game but not quite my taste because, well, it feels very kiddy (might have something to do with the main character and plot). The time limit is so unnecessary. It would have been better if you could just take your time to explore. The online stage editor is neat and the splitscreen multiplayer can be crazy though. Eledees is worth a try because apparently there are people who really like it. For $14 it's ok I guess.

@vonseux:

First, that sounds all too personal. REA:RE and REA:REZ are running on the same engine and have the same gameplay, have about the same length, and the same replay value. So I don't really get the discrepance, I don't get why REA:RE is the best for you and REA:REZ comes in last. It's just different characters in a different plot/scenario, so your opinion must be based on subjective stuff.

REZ is more advanced thanks to the item drop and character switch features, so in reality REZ is technically the slightly better game. Putting RE way above REZ is just personal preference that has little to do with the qualities of the games.

Second, RE4 had much more replay value, because you can start over in a NEW GAME+ when beating the game: You keep all weapons and their stats, and you won't lose your money and energy packs and keep all the items in your inventory, so it's great for people like me who want to collect everything and replay the game under different (and easier) circumstances. I mastered RE4 on Gamecube four times. 2 times on Normal. 2 times on Pro. And soon I will replay this for at least a 5th and 6th time on Wii.

I thought RE1 wasn't all that replayable compared to RE4. Yeah, there are two different selectable characters and it's fun to beat the game once with each, but I wouldn't call it a replay, but two different scenarios.

There are 2 things to make a replay worth though, if you're into these things:

  • 1. Trying to beat the game on a higher difficulty setting. The higher the difficulty the more survival! Always a good one. But RE4 has different difficulties too, so that can't be the reason why you said RE1 has more replay value!
  • 2. Speedrunning for costumes and a bonus weapon. That's a lame one! The time limit is frustratingly crazy (beat the whole game in 2h30m), the reward is crap, and the game is too slowpaced anyway. I always wondered why Capcom included rewards for speedrunning this game, as RE is a pretty speedrun-unfriendly game. You really need to know the game by heart and where to go next, skip all the cutscenes and most of the fights and items. Basically speedrunning RE means skipping the fun, exploiting dumb enemies and such, but yeah it's a hell of an achievement worth ranting about.

@SKTTR As to Elebits, is there a set time limit while playing a level created by the editor?

If I remember correctly you can choose if there's a time limit on selfmade stages.

In no way does the replay value for the RE Remake and Zero hold up to RE4's.....Reason being is because RE4's Aiming Controls and combat are vastly deeper, more complex and diverse....in RE4, There are just so many strategic ways to take down enemies, yet both the Archives titles 'while solid' for what they are pale in comparison from an aiming/combat perspective.....Yet for me RE4 pales in comparison on the atmosphere, characters, next to no backtracking, lame puzzle solving and not exactly being scary or entirely horror based.....although those Regenerators are a little creepy, at least the way they sound)

But at least with those 2 titles, you get more of a cinematic presentation due to the highly detailed and beautiful static prerendered backgrounds. But really, i dont like to compare the old RE to the new. They are their own breed of RE.

But ya, RE4 while a great game no doubt, just depresses me for some reason. I LOATHED the Island especially, and the Castle to some degree. As much as I love RE, RE1 for the PSX blows them all away, it was so amazing for it's time....Left a big imact on me. RE2, CV(especially) and RE4 however were all somewhat depressing experiences for me. :p RE1 and RE3 are my boys!

Twilight Princess is a 3D Zelda game. I think that alone is the best recommendation possible.

Sonic Unleashed is fun if you don't hate the werehog stages (which I didn't for the most part) but it seems fairly pointless compared to Colors.

I think It's finally about time i fired up a little No More Heros 2 maybe tomorrow or the next day.
This one could go either way for me. But for the millionth time, ditching the Hub world in favor of a Point and click map is such a massive simplified step up...And throwing in 8-bit jobs which 'visually' seems retrofied-appealing at least...But the games themselves look super repetitive and simple becoming a constant chore like the jobs were in the orignal.

Untitled

But these changes slighty interest my inner wavester' B-)

Another part of the problem i had with the first NMH, was the stale tedious stage design and the repetitive 'kill all enemies in the room' gameplay....At this point i don't even know if i wan't to go through all that again...Part of it felt like a chore in the original, but it's probably because i was already so drained from the dreadful HubWorld.

Anyways, Here I come NMH2....But i have the biggest feeling i won't get too into it. :p 3D brawlers rarely ineterest me, but the original NMH acceled in it's sweet combat, characters, boss battles and funky blazing presentation.

I'll be playing it tonight....That is if the Ultra evil Heat Wizard doesn't come down and lay a holy whirl wind of Heat-man wrath on my icy cool waves. :p
By the way, how long is the experience again on average? isn't it like 8-12 hours or something?
