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.
Just the other day, WiiHD was opining for Capcom to give us all high-quality access to that TGS Trailer Nintendo showed off and someone from the audience had lifted. Well, Capcom listened. In addition to that trailer being a lot more pleasant, they released on-floor gameplay footage, and a bag of new screenshots.
The trailer is gorgeous, and if you don't want Monster Hunter 3 after watching it, even a little bit, WiiHD recommends Vitameatavegamin to help cure whatever ails you.
Also, WiiHD has been tweaking our gallery system over the past few weeks, as you may or may not have noticed. Today, we've upped the resolution of the full-size images quite a bit, and we hope that makes for a more pleasant viewing. If you don't see a difference, clearing your browser's cache might help.
GoNintendo was trying to embed this last week, but it kept getting deleted from Youtube. It's the video from the Nintendo Event last week, and the first new MH3 video for a VERY long time. It was taken from the audience and at a bad angle, so cut it a little slack. It's got some nice water-based hijinks.
Hopefully, Capcom will release the professionally recorded version before too long. And as always, it's after the break.
BioWare's Miles Holmes prompted some DS speculation over the weekend when he talked about Sonic Chronicles, his upcoming DS RPG to eurogamer.de.
"We have a lot of big plans for Mass Effect. Having a DS version would be an awesome way to keep interest alive and keep it going in addition to the next one [Mass Effect 2]," said Holmes.
Also mentioned as possible DS titles were Jade Empire and Dragon Age. Kotaku suggests that Sonic Chronicles is a way for Bioware to test the water before putting their own IP on the DS.
Mass Effect was a huge game for the 360, and it's hard to imagine it not being a welcome addition to the DS library. Bioware has a knack for high quality, so let's hope Sonic Chronicles turns out to be a successful test.
The classic and then cutting-edge RPG Chrono Trigger is getting a DS upgrade, though how much of an upgrade is still unclear. Square Enix put up a countdown site, and sent out a press release letting us know that the game was on it's way. Other than knowing it has wireless multiplayer, we don't know much about how it will differ from the original. Full-fledged sequel? Remake with a tweak? We'll know soon enough, it's due out at the end of this year.
