The Wii nay-sayers are going to start having their comeuppance in the next few months, and I say… It’s about time. Maybe everyone will shut up about how slow the Wii game market has been and how they’re so bored with their Wii and how they’re sick of bowling. (But aren’t willing to actually sell their Wii for a hefty profit, I might add, seeing as how retail Wiis are still sold out, almost 12 months after release.)
I started college, so I was completely unaware of the fact that Mario Strikers Charged was finally released in the United States! I was aware of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption coming out a few weeks ago, though. But in addition to these two amazingly fun looking games, Super Mario Galaxy is slated to come out on November 12th, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl is coming out on December 3rd.
I am in a… very odd predicament. I am raising money for a new PC, while having preordered Halo 3 Legendary as well. In addition to that, I have four Wii games on my list, plus the Orange Box from Valve that’s going to come out soon, too.
Brawl is a no-brainer. I may even preorder that soon with my new handy-dandy Amazon certificate I got in the mail a few days ago. I want Mario Strikers, too, but I have a feeling that nobody else will, and I’ll be playing that alone. Metroid is high up on my list, but I didn’t realize that all three Metroid Prime games were to make up a trilogy, so I’m going to have to find Metroid Prime 2 and play that. Mario Galaxy is pretty low on my list, though, much to the very oddly placed chagrin of Edrick. (What does it matter to him if I buy a single-player game at release or 2 years later? :P )
But anyway, the games are coming, people. All you need is some patience for just a little bit longer! Mark my words, after this year, more people will start announcing and releasing far better games. Remember! Nobody expected the Wii to do so well and they’re all scrambling to make the next blockbuster for it.
