    It's a shame to see amazing games not sell well, or not get enough interest as they should. Psychonauts, Beyond Good and Evil, ICO, the list goes on. This thread is just meant to raise interest in some titles. ;)

    Endless Ocean
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Release Date: October 29, 2007
    Players: 1 (2 online co-op)
    Developer, Publisher: Arika, Nintendo
    Why should you be interested?
    Endless Ocean is a open ended exploration game. Meaning, you can explore at your own pace. Apparently, there are some missions that you have to do but a large part of the game is going to different locations and exploring ruins and interacting with fish. Not to mention the graphics are really good looking. You can even go online with your friends and play co-op with one of them. To top it all off, you can even add your own relaxing music to an SD card and listen to it as you swim. It might not sound interesting, but this game will no doubt hit a niche market. Are you one of them? I am.

    Battalion Wars II
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Release Date: October 29, 2007
    Players: 1 (rumored 2 player local)(2 player online)
    Developer, Publisher: Kuju, Nintendo
    Why should you be excited?
    I feel like a broken record trying to hype this game. Basically, visit my thread dedicated to BWii (Battalion Wars II).

    Zack and Wiki
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Release Date: October 16, 2007
    Players: 1
    Developer, Publisher: Capcom, Capcom
    Why should you be excited?
    If you've ever played a classic point-and-click... you know... you know why you should be excited. Point-and-click adventures aren't a series I would call popular. But the games make so much sense on Wii. Zack and Wiki is a game of tons (apparently extremely challenging) of puzzles. And it also has one hell of an art style. And what more? You can get this amazing game at $10 off the usual price... $39.95.

    Nitrobike
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Release Date: November 13, 2007
    Players: 1-(probably)4 (6 player minimum online)
    Developer, Publisher: Left Field, Ubisoft

    Why should you be excited?
    Alright, I'm going out on a limb with this one. This game could be bad... I'm not gonna deny that. But all signs (well most signs) point to this game being good! The game is being developed by some of the people behind the brilliant game Excitebike 64. If you loved that game, I don't know why you wouldn't get this. I loved Excite Truck and one of the things it was missing was online play. Well guess what... this has it! The developers have stated that the game will have at least a 6 player online mode and maybe 10 player online mode. The graphics aren't amazing, but the gameplay should make up for it.

    LOL, you are right, I'm not interested in any of those games, no offence. I haven't even heard of Endless Ocean and Zack and Wiki.

    But, I've been doing some research on BW 2 and it does look like a good game.

    Endless Ocean looks like a relaxing game. Swimming with fish and exploring is always fun :p. Battalion wars 2 looks good to I never played the first one but I might soon.

    The game is online, good gameplay, and it seems to have good controls.
    Thats why I am looking forward to it.

    DBZB3 isnt online, well at least not according to nintendo.

    Godzilla games always suck and normal get under 50% in reviews, nothing to look forward too.

    MMR, tis good looking.

    -----------------------

    I am not a fan of BWii so I wont even consider buying as there is other games which intrest me.

    Endless ocean looks very nice, smooth gameplay, decent graphics, exploring oceans online wold be fun.

    Nitro bike looks rather crazy to say the least.

    I wont be getting any but thanks for the previews.

    It's a strategic war game with awesome online features including online co-op.

    I like that Nitro Bike one. Is it like a sequel to Excite Truck? It sure looks like it...
