Riskening’s Most Anticipated – Part 1 : Wii Edition

Our featured video game console of this section of the Most Anticipated is the Wii.

I know, I know…it’s been awhile in the making but I’ve finally decided to jump in. I’ll be breaking them down by console exclusives (then multi-platform), starting with the Wii. 10 games (no particular order), some of these titles are pretty close while others are a bit farther away (we hope before the end of 2010) but nonetheless we’re excited for all of them.

Let’s begin!

new-super-mario-bros-wii-screenshot

  • New Super Mario Bros Wii – Graphically it looks alot like the New Super Mario Bros for the DS, but the big change this time around is the up to 4 multiplayer. Mario, Luigi, and 2 Toads return to cooperatively (or competitively, depending on how you play it) dash through the worlds collecting coins and beating the Koopa kids, also featuring Yoshis to ride on (pictured above). The lack of online multiplayer is a bit disappointing but considering Nintendo and online gaming it’s not that big of a surprise. Hopefully it’ll atleast deliver a solid offline mode.

metroid-other-m_03

  • Metroid : Other M – Nintendo and Team Ninja (creators of the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive series) together, some people might be a bit skeptical about the combination into a long standing series, but I’ve been a pretty long fan of Team Ninja’s work and I think that they’ll deliver some new action and fresh story to the series (and I’ve been an even longer metroid fan). It appears to be a combination of third and first person based on the trailer and screenshots. The trailer also showed some beautiful cutscene work that has been pretty lacking in the series. I think most people’s worries is that Samus might be too “ninja-y” this time around but I really don’t mind possibly seeing Samus in action with some new moves this time around (and kicking even more ass than ever). That’s why I’m interested in seeing what they do.

SinPunishment2

  • Sin and Punishment 2 – I didn’t have too much experience with rail shooters, but when the first game came to Wii I thought why not check this out. Having never even heard of the original from the N64 days since it was a Japanese only title I had no idea what it was about. After I started getting into it I was a little bit confused by the story but that didn’t matter to me too much because the gameplay rocked. It was the true fast paced action that got me hooked and I can’t wait for more of it.

Silent-Hill-Shattered-Memories-Impressions

  • Silent Hill : Shattered Memories – Silent Hill has been a staple in my survival horror diet for a good amount of time now. This new Wii title, dubbed as a sort of re-envisioning of the first game in the series, is bringing new gameplay variation to the table. Once again a title being worked on by american developers instead of the original japanese team, one of the main differences is the abandoning of combat driven gameplay for much more evasion rather than confrontation of the monsters encountered. They will also be putting to use the motion controls for fleeing and puzzle solving, among probably other things. Another interesting bit is a psychological profiling of sorts at the start of the game that’s suppose to play into the game as a whole depending on how you answer. Based on what we’ve seen so far it certaining sounds like a fresh experience full of new ideas and I hope they pull it off well for the sake of the series.

super-mario-galaxy-2

  • Super Mario Galaxy 2 – Mario is coming back with all new galaxies to explore! If you’ve played the first one at all you know just how fun it was to fly around with Mario in space, exploring crazy new worlds never before seen in the Mario series. This time Yoshi also returns (much like New Super Mario Bros) but this time he has a couple new moves, including a tongue grapple and eating fruit for various abilities. Sounds good to me, bring it on.

Check out all 10 titles after the jump!

(Almost) 500 Duke Nukem 3D kills (and other things)

As you may know, I’ve been hammering away at Duke Nukem 3D quite a bit lately. All achievements unlocked but one…the 500 kills in ranked matches. I reached 379 after about 100ish kills in a few matches last night and hope to reach 500 within another night or two. 😀

Below is the post-stats of one of my better matches last night. Won with 25 kills, 11 deaths on Stadium (which is pretty fucking hectic with 7-8 people, if you’ve ever played it you’d know) and 3:18 minutes.

Crappy screenshot (rechargeable batteries died and I could only squeeze out one shot)

In other news I also bought Silent Hill : Homecoming yesterday and Lego Batman earlier last week, both on 360. Silent Hill even came with a Pyramid Head keychain (yay! circuit city bonus). Only got a bit of a start on Homecoming, but I’m liking it so far. I also like how some of the achievements pay homage to past silent hill games (like silent hill 2) and Akira Yamaoka does a great job with the music as usual.

Saturday’s my brother’s wedding, gotta pick up my tux later today.

Upcoming, a closer look at some of October’s gaming releases and maybe (hopefully) finished About me and Projects sections…after the wedding.

Until then,

EDIT (10/3/08): I hit and passed the 500 mark last night…w00t! Only second game I’ve got 100% achievements on (first being Doom).

Possible Spoiler…click more to see it.
