its in an issue of nintendo power with screenshots also. it would be vertical shooter but eith 3d graphics.Originally Posted by WiitnessIDReally an R-type game SWEET! Where did you hear this I must confirm!
Oyeah I haven't tried it but what id nintendo just let us burn our own DVDs? I mean you would not need a sd card and I'm sure the community would make such disk with the only problem being piracy. Yet since we can already put roms on an sd card I think they already have that fixed. Really I would rather have DVDR support on my Wii rather than have a hard drive of which I know is going to go down one day! Also the sd cards don't last for ever either, they get corrupted it seems.
Yeah DVDr support could just be a matter of drivers or maybe it's already supported? Who knows! I mean they said nothing about a USB keyboard being supported and it works great! Also what if Wiware gives you the ability to run stuff off a SD card rather than from the internal flash? They could do this! Sd cards do come in 4 gig flavors and you can get 8 gig flavors also which is pretty big for a game. Most PC games ship on dvds right now so 8 gigs is over kill! Yet what if just what if nintendo sent out monthly disks with all of the Wii ware games on it and all you had to do is pay for it only and bam you have access to it! I would get a nintendo power subscription for that!
Back to subject I'm loving this Wiiware thing and if you are a gamer with some programming friends you too can be a developer but just a warning I've heard it is way harder then it seems to make a good game...LOL I've been seeing a lot of 2d game engines floating around also and these developers should find away to help these guys get on the Wii and start supporting the Wii mote also!
Yet give Mr. Lee a chance to put out engines to Wiiware developer would be sweet! Also too If this goes down the way I think it can go down then we could see more games that rock just like contra 4 and hell maybe we can even get a real ninja gaiden again! I mean the ds version would be sweet, I'd rather play it than the 3d version right now.
250-512 is huge for a 2d game. Some times my download times are surprisingly fast for some of the roms that are on the VC. Yet the Monthly disk thing would be sweet and very convenient to the people who love a good 2d game still. I mean come on if you remember the 4 player 2d side scrollers then you know what I'm talking about! Then possibly having online support also! Sweet...
EA should also offer their EA nation to these guys also , they could make some extra cash and possibly groom future employees.
How ever it goes I can't wait to try this out. So far I'm pretty impressed!
