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.

Dead Rising: Chop Till you Drop is shaping up to be one of the best ports Wii has ever received. A genius title, Zombies, the RE4 over-the-shoulder style gameplay, a sandbox world with a sweet theme, and excellent attention to detail. Capcom's upcoming Wii lineup is really looking sweet (see also: Monster Hunter Tri and Spyborgs).
Today, Capcom dumped a bunch of new screens, and some TGS footage on us, including a trailer and some on-floor gameplay footage. What we don't see is them achieving their previously stated goal of putting 100 zombies on screen at once, but it's still looking like a great game.
In the original 360 game, some of the complaints were that mission times had cramped the sandbox play style, and Capcom payed attention, and loosened things up to really give you the kind of freedom that a sandbox was designed to provide.
In honor of the Leipzig Games Convention, Capcom is dumping new Chop till You Drop screens and video footage on us. There's a standard trailer, a gameplay trailer, and 18 new screens eagerly awaiting your attention.
Truth be told, zombies alone aren't really enough to get WiiHD psyched about a game. Been there, done that. But watching the game in action, it really looks to be open world, sandbox gaming done right. Watch in the gameplay trailer as Frank manages to use tons of random stuff from the environment to wade his way through hordes of zombies. Being in a mall would be nice enough on it's own, but having full run of the place and everything in it (including the food court) rocks. WiiHD would love to some more games of this style on Wii. Freedom in gaming is good.
But Dead Rising isn't just a pointless zombie-killing frenzy either. You've got scared and trapped townfolk to rescue, and a huge mystery to solve. Having a mission is good too.
Hey Treyarch, you want to prove you heart Wii? How about giving WaWii some decent public exposure. Call Capcom, they'll explain the process to you. Or hit the break and take a gander.
WiiHD loves Strategy games of all stripes, from turn-based to RTS. And WiiHD loves open worlds too. It seems that the next installment in the Godfather's gaming franchise may well combine those two features. Will it work? We hope so.
