Wii Ware Games
« on: June 29, 2007, 07:07:50 am »
I was surprised to see that no one had started a topic on this yet, since apparently this seems like a big deal. Here's the Kotaku article.

http://kotaku.com/gaming/so-fresh-and-so-clean/wiiware-original-downloadable-games-confirmed-for-wii-272634.php

Basically what it's telling us is that in early 2008, we'll be able to download games from small developers... not just big ones. Apparently it's a pretty cool deal. Will Indie developer games actually turn out to be any good is my question, though. I'm excited.

They already talked about this in the Kotaku Sez thread.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Change the title of this topic to 'WiiWare Games' and you will be good.


Nothing amazing yet, but interesting.



Maybe the Wii version of Mario Paint that I have secretly wanted.

There was a group of people I know planning to make a 2D version of smash brothers for download onto gameboys and the like, I wonder if they would do the same for the wii, if they're still doing it...

Strong Bad is getting an episodic WiiWare game!

Personally, I think this is super nifty!

Good deal!

Here is another one.


I've never seen this game before but it does look like a lot of fun.

Wii Ware doesn't seem terribly exciting to me. It may change when there are more games on it, but otherwise the lineup so far isn't very impressive.

I hear that. It could be, after experiencing the frustration with Smash Online, anything that has to deal with the Wii online makes me feel jaded. Also I've been very spoiled and pampered with XBLA and not having little things like online-multiplayer and leader boards with almost every game, lessens the value of Wii Ware titles for me.

Nintendo really has to shape up their online. At this point there are no games with online that interest me (not a big fan of Smash without friends next to you) and the games that I think could be fun online don't have it.

Some of the games look really good but others... not so much. The Final Fantasy game that's coming to WiiWare looks good but for what is essentially the equivalent of an Xbox Live Arcade game, it is woefully overpriced. $15 for the core game and you have to pay to unlock other races.

It seriously beats out Oblivion and the horse armour fiasco.  It's very obvious they've held back certain content for the game to make us pay for it later.  New costumes, buildings, races, and it's all very expensive.  I would have expected more from Square.

I also hear that it's going to be known as Wii Software in Europe.  Not sure if there was any reason given for that..  The only game I'm really interested in so far is the Pokemon one, and only because you can get Mew from it.   :)

There is one other game, Lost Winds, that has a lot of potential and looks like it might be really good. Beyond that though, I haven't seen anything that impressed me.
