    I have a link for him

    http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/bethesdas-sean-brennan-part-two

    Q: You product is more adult-orientated, so you must be watching a company like Sega who are trying mature titles like House of the Dead and Mad World on the Wii. Do you see a market for product like that on the Wii?

    Sean Brennan: House of the Dead is great brand and the product is great too. I think it's difficult, I've got consoles at home but I wouldn't sit and play an 18-rated game with my family on the Wii. Is there space in the Wii market for that? I think there is, but again, it' all about finding out how big that is. Is it 5 per cent? If it's five per cent of the market and you can own that space it's worth doing because you can achieve volume. If you can't own it at five per cent, it's not worth doing, quite frankly. We are going to make an announcement on a really big Wii game this year, we've got a couple of other things in the pipeline, and it's a format we're really looking at with the right approach. We're not going to establish a new range and call if 'My Girly Game Range' or whatever these other companies are doing, it's so me-too and boring.

    Q: A number of publishers jumped on the Wii a little too early and didn't really know what to do with it, and now they trying to get back on it with an adult slant.

    Sean Brennan: Yes, and it was a problem with the DS space as well, because as soon as you spot the bandwagon, it's already too late. People don't get that. There are still some people jumping on the bandwagon but it's not within our business philosophy.

    This is one of the reasons why PS3/360 fanboys hate the Wii. Hardcore game developers jumping on the Wii bandwagon.

    great news, i just hope they come up with something new and original that we haven't seen before, i love fallout and TES, but i'd much rather play those on a PC instead of craptastic downgrades

    Can you ever go without putting the words hardcore and blood in there?

    And why are you still trying? If more then anything else, Fallout and Oblivion are great RPGs with a mix of FPS and Strategy elements incorporated with it.

    I'm really looking forward to this announcement. I hope Bethesda puts a lot of time into the title so it can even be half as good as Fallout 3 (assuming it's an RPG).

    Can I really be the only one??

    [quotewdoublei]From the quote it says it won't be hardcore(what ever your definition of that is). And Caliko why are you such a negative nancy? A Debbie Downer?[/quote]

    Cuz I play games to have FUN and all I hear on these forums are "hArdCor3" gamers yap about "Red Steel doesn't have blood so it's not a good game" or "I'll buy this only if it's rated M" or "the casuals are ruining gaming as we know it!!!" I also can't help but shake my head at those who play GTA to feel tough and turn down amazing platformers like Mario Galaxy because "teh too kiddy counsel".
    Who's the Nancy? You decide.

    P.S. Did anyone actually read the article? They're implying it's gonna be a "hardcore" bloodbath.

    The landscapes of Oblivion or Fallout 3 won't look too pretty on Wii.

    It isn't that John Carmack isn't interested in developing games for the wii.

    MTV Multiplayer: You’ve said in the past that you don’t think id titles will be on the Wii. Is that still the case?

    Carmack: Interestingly, I actually spend far more time playing Wii with my four year-old boy than I do with any other game console. So I’m definitely sympathetic to the platform. But “Rage” is not a viable option on the Wii because of the technology. We’ve been pitched and talked about a project to do a title that would fit well on the Wii, and it’s actually related to an iPhone title that we’re doing. But that’s still kind of up in the air as to what other developer we would partner with on there. I’d like to do something there, because I love a lot of what Nintendo has done with the Wii and the DS, but it’s just out of sync with the developments that are currently going on at id.

    MTV Multiplayer: Do you feel you’d have to create a new IP? Or at least a new game from the ground up for the Wii?

    Carmack: Yeah, it would have to be a completely different game. We would use one of our existing IPs where we have a little bit of leverage. It’s not something that really any of our titles, that are under development currently would be appropriate for.



    Epic games already said they aren't developing for the system.

    Bethesda said it was a really big game and either of those would fit the description. If they made an RPG with graphics close to Zelda:TP or Rune Factory then it would be impressive.

    Of course it would have to be specifically designed for the Wii so hopefully it'll be a spin off or an original IP, not a downgraded port or something on rails.

    They would need to make it an original IP as anything with 'Fallout' or 'The Elder Scrolls' on it will be compared the the PS3/360 versions, and will therefore be a shadow of them.

    Comparisons are often inevitable, unless a Wii version is actually better, in which case they are ignored.

    A spin off of either TES or Fallout would work. They could sell it on the name recognition but keep it different enough that it wouldn't be unfairly compared.

    The Wii doesn't have to have the shiniest graphics to be the best version of a game though (subject to opinion). If a game is well designed then the control set can make up for the graphical deficiencies and offer a different form of immersion (i.e. Godfather, SW:TFU). Given the type of combat in Oblivion, a Wii version with sword swinging gameplay could be great if done properly.
