Nintendo Voice Chat podcast summary – Talk about Capcom Wii projects

Posted on June 24, 2008 by (@NE_Brian) in DS, News, Wii

Rock Band
– Underwhelming – comes very late after other versions, the great features aren’t in the Wii version
– Can’t make own band members
– Drums not wireless – there was an error on the press release
– Sub-par stereo sound

Madden All-Play
– Visuals “updated” – looks like they’re tweaking with the system
– 5 on 5 mode – easier to play – ex: throw automatically
– Call Your Shot: Draw own shots – can do this online
– Overall, gameplay more fast, “arcadey” – Bozon says this isn’t a bad thing
– Core football isn’t gimped (not too much missing from other versions)
– Hardcore gamers will go for the 360 version, casual gamers will go for the Wii version

Tiger Woods
– Feels good, graphics improved
– Colors more vibrant, frame rate is good
– Feels more polished, controls have been improved greatly
– Game accounts for full motion
– Matt is impressed with the game
– Game all about motion
– 4 player online at the same time (can see other people hitting the golf balls)
– Ball Battle: Zoom in screen on ball with heavy metal music – point remote at screen, pull it in any direction – friends scramble to pull it (to mess up a player)

We Love Golf
– Tiger way better than We Love Golf according to Matt

Guitar Hero World Tour
– Looks like you can play downloaded songs right off of SD card
– Proving things are possible on Wii (ex: downloadable content to SD card)
– Experience will be like Rock Band
– Every feature in Xbox 360 + PS3 versions will be in the Wii version

Moon (DS)
– Matt thinks Moon will be coming to Wii, wants to confirm his theory with the developers
– Looks good so far
– Good concept
– PR guy that Matt spoke to said the game is a DS version of System Shock 2

FFIV
– 3D, cool, very difficult game
– There’s a fat chocobo
– Even though the game is hard, it’s very rewarding
– Uses FFIII graphics engine
– Both screens used this time – maps in dungeons
– Tons of voice-acting

Guitar Hero On Tour
– Peripheral works well
– Some complaints: Only 4 buttons (but still difficult), cramp-inducing, song list isn’t as great as what you’ll see on consoles
– Lame songs still fun to play
– “Secret” feature will be made known soon

Final Fantasy Tactics A2
– Very very good, but it’s the same
– A lot like FF Tactics Advanced
– Square put a ton of polish on the game

Deadly Creatures
– Something about the aspect of playing as tarantula is cool
– Gilbert Gottfried providing voice talent for tarantula
– Music, voices are great – Elijah Wood, David Spade providing voice work as well

Sim City Wii
– Being developed by Hudson
– Looks promising
– Draw roads with Wiimote, can draw curved roads for the first time

Top Spin 3 DS
– Good framerate – was a big issue in last version
– Nothing really has changed
– Gameplay is great, better than the Wii version

Gyrostarr
– Review coming soon
– It’s a cool game but not amazing
– Every level starts off slow
– Will probably earn something in the mid-7s

Reader mail
– It is possible to fill all 4 pages on the Wii menu if you only buy NES games (maybe TurboGrafx-16 too)
– GBA games on VC would be a good idea – the GBA is basically like the SNES
– Abysmal sales of Boom Blox: Game should have been on WiiWare, Steven Spielberg wasn’t mentioned enough – marketing not good enough either
– Madden 09: Load times are shorter, whole experience more streamlined
– THQ’s Big Huge Games Wii project: Game still in development, not sure if it’ll be on Wii – haven’t heard much on it lately
– Megaman 9 – not sure which system it’s coming out for
– Dark Wing Duck RPG – whole crew would buy it if it were in development
– Capcom’s E3 list (Project 1, 2) – One of these games is a Wii game – Matt says there’s more from Capcom for Wii
– Final Fantasy 6 and Crono Trigger on VC – Square Enix loves to remake games – don’t expect these titles on the VC anytime soon
– Leaked Silicon Knights footage: Not sure about it, Matt forgot to ask a guy who he met from Silicon Knights
– Publishers imposing limits on reviewers: Part of the industry but MGS4 situation was out of control
– Daemon started playing Wii Fit, feeling it working, Bozon done with Wii Fit challenge – lost 21-22 lbs in 30 days (did other activities with Wii Fit)
– Talk about hardcore gaming dying: Daemon doesn’t think it’s dying
– Block Breaker Deluxe: Breakout, but with a pointer
– Where are the Wii RPGs? – Tales of Symphonia coming out soon, others coming out soon
– In Wii Fit, the trainers’ lips don’t move: Would have required 2 extra days of programming (joke) – Matt wishes you could modify the trainer’s look
