WiiHD is a huge fan of online gaming, but not just any online gaming. Core gaming in genres like racing, fighting, and shooters. So now we want to do our part to help the core Clan community on Wii make themselves known and increase their membership. We will begin listing notable clans that actively engage in clan wars in games like Medal of Honor: Heroes 2. We will however keep the gates, so not just any clan listing will be accepted. A clan needs to demonstrate viability to be listed
WiiHD is now unveiling a gallery of user created videos from Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 (MoHH2), currently the best FPS on Wii, and the only one with online multiplayer. We'll be doing this for a number of similar games as they come out. If you want your video included, just hit the link above and use the submission form.
WiiHD is your one-stop shop for hardcore gaming on the Wii.
Hardcore gamers frequently belittle the Wii for its low-power CPU, small storage space and gimicky casual games. Nintendo didn't keep their promise to focus on both hardcore AND casual games, but they did design a control system that is truly next-gen. Rumors of similar controls for PS3 and the 360 tell that tale. Sure, you can accurately control a 3D game with dual analog. You can also communicate in binary, but why would you want to? The Wii Remote rivals the PC keyboard and mouse as a control mechanism for 3D worlds, and it leaves dual-analog as a relic of the past. It can change the way games are played. Hardcore gaming isn't just about distracting ADD patients with shiny gfx, it's about delivering a whole new way of playing.
The Wii's FPS controls have finally been perfected with the release of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. In November of 2007, Medal of Honor: Heroes 2 brought the first taste of online FPS to the system, and the most customizable controls we've seen so far. Nintendo's focus may be elsewhere, but if you buy, the games will come. The most exciting game on the menu now is The Conduit, a new original IP from High Voltage that promises the whole package for the first time. The Wii has overtaken the xbox 360's 1 year lead and has the largest install base of any console. Talk of most of them being casual gamers is a misnomer—the new casual gamers mostly live in the same household as a hardcore gamers. If developers will finally stop phoning in Wii development and give us complete games, they'll see incredible returns.
This site will follow, document, review, compare and contrast the Wii's hardcore games with your help. There's good news on the horizon. Be a part of it at WiiHD. And leave your casual games at the door.
Yes, Call of Duty: World at War is coming to DS. Yes, Quantum of Solace is coming to DS. But the DS shooter WiiHD is most eager to see is Moon. From the makers of Dementium, another original DS shooter, this bad boy has all the makings of a dark and cool portable shooter experience.
Renegade Kid was kind enough to dump a load of new screens on us, so we're dumping them on you. Catch the gallery after the break.
The Official Moon Website has achieved liftoff. You've already seen the screenshots and the videos, but the website also offers a list of weapons, vehicles, and environments along with a brief description. This list functions as a nice preview of the depth of the game.
SAR - A high impact energy weapon.
Lepton Spread - A neutron shotgun.
Oxid Cannon - A short range, portable nuclear cannon. Yes, nuclear.
Seeker Pod - A gravity weapon prototype for clearing room prior to entering, not for close range.
Muon Pistol - Handgun with more range and precision than normal.
Remote Access Droid - a robot that established a direct neural link and leaves you vulnerable to attack while you manipulate it. Think about the spider droids in Bond: Everything or Nothing or the Ninja kitties in Tenchu 4.
LOLA RR10 - Low-Gravity Land-based Recon and Repulse Vehicle is equipped with a powerful laser turret. You'll be driving this from the cockpit, not a neural interface.
After the break there's some screens and a description of each environment.
With Civilization Revolution out of the way, Moon is quickly becoming WiiHD's most anticipated DS title. Eerie, moody, suspenseful and brimming with action, it has elements more closely associated with Microsoft's gaming division than Nintendo's. One of the advantages to being on top, as the DS is in the portable wars, is getting a little bit of everything.
The point of this post is to let you get a gander at the new Moon trailer. It isn't big, but it doesn't really need to be. It's after the break (would that WiiHD's plumber would keep his moon after the break too), so see for yourself.
Apparently it's all DS day here at WiiHD. IGN has a nice preview of a cut-scene heavy, single-player focused action event known as Moon. It features unlockable rewards for playing in the higher difficulty setting and it comes out this fall.
This post is mainly just an excuse to post some video. It's looks sweet, so hit the break to see it.
