    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?

    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

    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)
    The last few "good" games that EA have put there logo on have not been made by EA

    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)
    So I must hate my self for liking the oppositions console
    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)
    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.

    Most games are violent

    Ever played pong ?
    The "Bleep" is in actual fact screams of pain as the players get hit with the square balls sharp edges

    "Hardcore games" are not just violent games with mature content....Zelda is hardcore...but casual is like a Cooking School, Walk the dog, Get in Shape with......, American Idol......see these games are casual because they are for the non gamer crowd

    what I want to see is

    Street Fighter 4
    Afro Samurai (camera improved for Wii)
    Mirror's Edge

    etc.......you know just more and more games!!!!!!!..........not just a Wii exclusive I had enough of that in my Gamecube days

    The word casual is being used to replaced the word mainstream. And the word Hardcore is replacing mainstream.

    I played the 360 version, and yes it was really good. I loved every minute of that game. It was the most challenging game I beat in a long time. and about the zombies, really who cares. Most of the zombies in Dead rising (360 version) didn't even do anything. You can walk past them with no problem. I hated the words on the 360 version because they were too damn small to read. I don't know if the wii version will be better, but I do know it will be fun to play! you can brag about them consoles all you want lol i could care less. the only good consoles you mentioned was the n64 and 360. sega is dead and the original xbox was lame. anyways back to the topic. Those games look great coming out!

    I think you will find thats every bodys major concern with the game
    Play it in HD
    The words become clear
    So you do care about what I own ?

    I'm excited no doubt, No More Heroes 2, Dead Space, MadWorld and The Conduit alone are good enough for me. Nevermind the things Nintendo has still to come as well, its good to be a Wii gamer again.

    Lots of great core gaming on the horizon for Wii. February should be a good month, however I won't be able to buy much until later because I'll need to buy baseball cleats and a new bat which could come out to around $175 =/

    Out of my most wanted games, the ones I really want the most have to be Timesplitters 4 (unconfirmed since Free Radical was bought), House Of The Dead Overkill, and Deadly Creatures (maybe).

    Going to be a good year. :)

    A lot of people do think of 'hardcore' games as being M rated, which is why a lot of Wii games got criticism from the 'hardcore' players because they were E rated and looked cartoony. Now the Wii has had 3 good M rated games so far in February alone and the best is still to come (Madworld and The Conduit especially). It's good that 3rd parties have started to look beyond 'casual' mini games and it'll be a great year for bloody 'hardcore' Wii owners for sure.
