Do you like poorly produced, overpriced, and gimmicky mini-game collections that don't seem to even remotely take themselves seriously? 'Cause that's what this looks like.



board games are nice but is obvious that this game has the wii=retards mentality from the big companies.

Besides, the game looks dumb. Pass.

I don't know how the game is, I haven't played it yet. Looking like sh*t and actually being sh*t are two different things. If the mini-games are good, I'll enjoy them for the $30 price tag. The Wario Ware games are a good example. They look ridiculous until you actually play them.

The only Mini-games I like are in Super Mario Party 8. Not sure how this is going to turn out :/

The video made me laugh so I'm at least interested to see more, including a review, before pronouncing it "meh"

True, Lady Gryphon, it didn't look nearly as bad as most minigame collections, but just the fact that it has 30 minigames makes me question its quality. 30 minigames is A LOT, which makes me think there are about 5 worth playing in the collection. The onscreen prompt that said "shaketh" made me laugh, though.

i saw sword-fighting and then i thought AWESOME! then i saw the screenshot and now i wont even consider buying this

I love mini game collection/party games. However, very few companies know how to do it right. A great mini game collection needs to have fun mini games and most companies cranking these games out forget that part.

This doesn't look like a turd at all, can actually be a pretty good party game imo. And with 40 megs this could be a grafxpusher on the wiiware.

edit: oh it's a discrelease...... FAIL!!!

@Corbie You are right about looks sometimes being deceiving, but the following is slightly irrelevant in my opinion:
"The Wario Ware games are a good example. They look ridiculous until you actually play them. "
They may look ridiculous, but WarioWare is a venerable first-party franchise, and only the first one or two games would've been approached with much skepticism.



Corbs said:

How exactly is it irrelevant? This is the first game in this series. The original Wario Ware was the first game in the series and media outlets were ripping it from the moment Nintendo released the first screenshots and video of it in action. I remember it quite clearly, with one media outlet even going so far as to call it nothing more than a pathetic way to capitalize on the Wario character.

Then when everyone got to play it, it received high review scores and was praised as brilliant. While I don't know how this game will turn out, it could just as easily turn out to be good. I'll reserve judgement until I get my hands on it and then I'll know for sure.

I'm going to pass on this one=) I'm more of a big game player, not a mini game player.

Preface: My points were that it was a first-party game, featuring a known character, so, though it may have seemed very stupid (at first) to some people, most weren't honestly expecting it to flop. Nintendo games had a better reputation then as a whole (i.e. no Pokemon Battle Revolutions, or [insert the name of an average Mario sports title here]s). Also, "micro-games" were a new, exciting concept in a way, and while they looked ridiculous, WarioWare (to me) had a very promising art style that exuded Japanese quirkiness, and hinted at the quality of the game. I understand that, to the average player, it might not have. Medieval Games may in fact turn out very decent, or even great, but I believe I have good reason to approach it with much caution. You win, I just wanted you to see my points.



Corbs said:

I always win. Whether I win or not. But in all seriousness, I see your point. I just don't like to dismiss something until I've gotten my hands on it.



Odnetnin said:

It's settled, then. I will be pleasantly surprised if it is good, and I admit it seems to have a certain personality about it (more than many others of its kind on Wii, at any rate). I will also not be very surprised if it is mediocre. But because of its aforementioned charm, I don't expect it to fail epically. Not at all.
