Finally! A new Wii game I actually want!

Posted by LightYagami245 (1117 posts) -

Square-Enix has finally commented that Dragon Quest X will be heading to the Wii! I was pretty surprised by this move, but wasn't too taken back by it(since DQ9 is being released for the DS). I wonder if this will affect the game's quality.
What do you all think about it?

I know. In Japan, it's as big as FFXIII going to 360.

Huh? FFXIII isn't going to 360 in Japan last I heard. Even if it was, I'm not sure the comparison would hold up.

most people in japan will play it on PS3, because they'll eat up Versus too

Liquid: It exists, and is selling like hotcakes.
Willy: The DQ series is bigger in Japan than the FF series, unlike in the US where the positions are reversed.

Yeah, and putting Gears of War 2 or Uncharted 2 on the Wii wouldn't affect their quality either.  This is a game I'd buy if it were on the PS3 or 360, but I'll ignore it because I refuse to buy another Wii until I can get one for $150, because that's as much as they should charge for a system with old technology in it and a faulty control scheme.

Why would they lower the price on a system selling more than sliced bread?
Expect no price cuts until 2010, possibly late 2009, but I doubt it.

Ehhhh what? One of the thing that makes GOW and Uncharted are its graphics, DQ has always been about style and gameplay not poly count.

I think that were some sarcasm there, new mod.

I agree with Endogene, Gears and Uncharted would be affected because of how much they could put on the disc. Gears couldn't have many enemies on screen and Uncharted could not have a long story without multiple discs.

I may have to pick this up. I can't remember the last one I played so it'll be nice to have another game on for my Wii.

Wow, could this be my third wii game I actuallly buy!?

Nah... the wii will find a way to screw it up.  Yea, the wii itself, not the developers.  lulz.  
Hopefully it'll turn out good, but the Wii somehow manages to screw up so many good game series.

I'd personally rather it have gone to the 360 and Ps3 because then they could have better graphics really and I much prefer a regular controller unless it utilizes it well (which a jrpg really cant).
Probably gonna buy it. 

Hoping that this is actually on all platforms though.  Oh well, at least I'll still be able to play it.

It's not the Wii that's a myth. It's quality games for it that are.
