    Has the bloody "hardcore" revolution begun??

    Keep in mind hardcore games can mean many things, in this post I talk about games with violence and gore. Personally I'm more of a casual gamer. Blood and gore don't impress me. But everyone else seems to care so here you go...

    February 3rd 2009: The day the Wii got its HARDCORE

    On this date Tenchu Shadow Assassins was released with Good reviews. IGN.com gives it a solid 8.0 all around. This is a good score considering IGN loves to give Wii a hard time in the reviews department.

    In coincidence with the release of Tenchu(Feb. 3rd) EA admits they can no longer ignore the Wiis install base and said they'd produce half of its upcoming console games for Wii and announce Dead Space Wii. (chalk another "hardcore" for the Wii).

    In February, 3 hardcore exclusives(EXCLUSIVES!!) will be released for the Wii. Tenchu Shadow Assassins, Deadly Creatures and House of the Dead Overkill.

    This is February, this is hardcore, this is just the beginning.

    Madworld, The Conduit, Dead Space, Cursed Mountain, No More Heroes 2...

    ... Winter? Timesplitters 4? Red Faction B.E.A.S.T?

    In 2007 I predicted Wii Fit would sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    EVERYONE at wiichat.com disagreed with me.

    As it stands today:

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 9.49 Million

    Wii Fit: 35 Million

    Cool I'm glad these games are coming out! It's about time the wii gets some hardcore gory sh!@! Don't forget Dead Rising, I'm buying that game too. There is rumors for manhunt 3 also. Killing on the wii is fun, play Godfather and you will know what i mean!

    Hardcore gamers
    Soft core gamers
    Casual gamers
    People that only recently started playing due to that bloody guitar game (It can turn out bloody if somebody picks Tokio hotel/Linken park)

    WHO GIVES A SMEG !?

    As long as theres good that console only games out on the console its a good console

    EA developed and good games should not really be spoken in the sentence

    Don't forget Dead Rising,

    I think the Wii port of that game is best forgotten

    I care. Yes I like casual games etc. But I would like to see M rated games on the wii too. EA makes good games. If you don't like ea thats your problem.

    So what if its a port. Dead Rising is a good game. I don't care what console its for fanboy. Yea, there is less zombies, but so what! What games do you like? Do you even have a wii?

    We'll have to wait and see about Dead Rising. It could be better, it could be a lot worse only time will tell.

    The point of this thread is to address that times are changing for the Wii. We are seeing more and more Hardcore games announced and more publishers admit that Hardcore games can be done on Wii.

    The good thing is, not only do we have some amazing casual games(Let's Tap! Wii Sports Resort) being released but also a good amount of M-Rated content. And that's good news for both the oblivious casual and the casual-hating-hardcore.

    When did M/18 rated games = Hardcore games ?
    Dont remember most of Treasures stuff baring the old 18+ logo ?
    Nor many of the other games that people call "Hardcore"
    (and Sin and punishment 2 to that list NOAW)

    Do you even have a wii
    Me
    A console fan boy ?
    *Looks at set up*
    Wow I must be a PS2/Saturn/360/Binatone/DS/Game gear/Dreamcast/Neo geo poket/N64/Jaguar/Megadrive/CD/xbox fan boy(Wii is at my sisters till Tenchu/Sin and punishment 2 comes out)(The rest are in the cuboard)

    I dont care that its a port
    I care that its got less zomibes
    Play the 360 version and see what made it good
    It wasnt that there was a massive empty space
    It was that there was a massive space full of zombies to be killed
    (That and the bossies)
    What games do you like?
    Do I have to list the games I like ?
    How long do you have ?
    Do I have to name the systems ive got them on as well ?
    Or can I just name the games I like on one system ?

    Easy, read the first paragraph on the first post. Or just read the thread title.

    You seem to forget

    There are Brits on this site and to us the word "Bloody" can be used as a lower form of the "F" word
    Perhaps the term "Gore" would be better used

    Still not all of us are blood obsessed kids
    Some of use like substance to a game rather than limbs flying every where

    Good point. Unfortunately the site does not allow me to edit the thread tittle.

    But this thread is about violent hardcore games.
