    Are the worst. Seriously. Who wants to play duck hunt with zombies or infected aliens? After finally taking a look at the new Resident Evil and Dead Space Extraction I discovered both are rail shooters.

    ****ing disappointment. Now I won't be getting either.

    ...

    Why are developers so lazy with the Wii?

    Cuz on-rails shooters generate tons of $$$$$$$ for the cost and time it takes to make them.

    I don't like on-rails, but HotD: Overkill, RE:DS, and DS:Extraction look good, and I thought RE:UC was pretty fun. I wish these games were tps/fps, then I'd 100% buy 'em.

    They're not that bad, actually. Perhaps it appeals to a few people?

    Have you never been to an arcade?

    I quite liked those. But my favorite has to be Overkill.

    I loved the RE Rails shooter on the Wii. Was very fun.

    I dont know why people hate them so much. They have there place.

    He plays Tekken. The boy is a fool.

    Maybe not your cup of tea but some of us will tell you that Rail Shooters are awesome.

    I know you were dying to use those pictures but you still fail. I never specifically called Capcom lazy. I think developers in general are lazy when it comes to Wii, which explains the minuscule amount of worthy third party Wii games compared to other consoles. I won't call Capcom lazy because it seems they set out to make a rail-shooter, which disappoints me considering they most definitely could make a worthy sequel in Resident Evil 4's style.

    But they don't. Because they're lazy. Yeah, I changed my mind.

    Starfox was awesome, but it's different. At least you had SOME movement and maneuverability, which was an important part of the game. This is just point and shoot lameness. :(

    You and me both. I was hoping that Nintendo would hint at a new one at E3.

    I think you will find your first statement fails.

    In your first post you did not say anything to discount Capcom from your "Why are developers so lazy with the Wii?"

    Everybody knows that a lot of developers are on the Wii for the money. But most need to at least make a profit in some way.
    It wouldn't make good business sense for them to spend loads on making a game that only sells 1,000 copy's.
