    I'm excited to see how this ends up, I know I can play the one on the 360 but this one is like a sequel or the beginning I think right? Either way, I want to give it a try on Wii and if the visuals are as top notch as they say then that's a bonus.

    Looking forward to this. I played a demo of the 360 version once, it was quite interesting. This should be better on the Wii.

    They did come out in August, so I guess they've had plenty of time to improve, but they don't seem too impressive. I do have to admit, the last one looks pretty decent.

    That screenshot looks insanely good. The environment and character models look top notch. Between this and The Conduit we are really about to see the untapped potential of the Wii hardware.

    FINALLY game developers are listening to what we've been asking them to give us; great games with great graphics. 2009 is looking to be a GREAT year.

    Yes, I can't wait to point and laugh at all my friends who sold their Wii's in 2008! I am excited about HOTD: Overkill, Conduit, Overlord, Tenchu Shadow Assassins, Deadly Creatures, and Madworld and all of these games come out near the first half of the year. Also I just read on IGN that EA is releasing a Boom Blox sequel, sounds good.

    Sounds good, I'll have to check it out. However, the Wii game I'm most excited for currently is HOTD Overkill. I've played every House of The Dead game so far excluding 4 and loved them all. Intrigued to see if the bosses are based on the Major Arcana deck of Tarot cards like all the others.

    We're starved for something pretty to look at. Graphics aren't top priority though.
