Yes or no. None of that, "I'll wait for reviews," crap. If it were released, and review sites didn't exist, would you get this?

I'm interested, but not enough to buy it. Sometimes I wonder what Reggie thinks we mean when we say "hardcore games"

No, I have no interest in the game.  Especially since I won't have reviews to look to.  If that were always the case, I'd play a lot less games.

 I don't think it will be better than World At War.

Topic: No, probably not. I will try it, and I will have a go at the multiplayer, but it just isn't the type of game I play the console for. In fact, it generally isn't the type of game I play.

If it had M+ support, however, that would've been a different story altogether.

I would rent. Without reviews or some sort of guidance on purchases, I wouldn't just buy any title.

Nope. I'm thinking of renting it though. But I definitely don't see myself buying it anytime soon -- or at all for that matter.

Well no, but at E3 he was saying "You guys thought Nintendo didn't care about Hardcore? Well HOO-AH!!!!!" Well maybe he didn't say exactly that. But hardcore in my book is a game for more of our audience, and he was showing a lot of "Bro, check out the blooooood!" stuff. I don't need extreme violence for a quality game, you know? I can enjoy Mario and still call that a hardcore game. But I totally am interested in Dead Space Extraction, and it's not like The Conduit was bad.

Exactly. And I'm a little mad that some "hardcore" games Reggie showed weren't even his. He was showing off products from Sega and stuff, which seemed to be a problem because then Nintendo themselves didn't have too many hardcore games.

If you agree with thequote then they had two hardcore games, two Mario games that is. Then they also had Sin & Punishment 2, Monado, and games that appeal to both types. How many can one company make (or fund), knowing they're hard at work on Pikmin 3 and the next Zelda?

As for showing third party games, uh, isn't the lack of support for third parties one of the issues people have with them? Now they advertise some they're bashed for it? They also showed Square's The Crystal Bearers if these weren't your cup of tea...

I have no interest in it. I hate the idea of motion controls for shooters. Having to constantly have my arm extended at the screen doesn't seem very relaxing to me.

Seriously? Have you even - properly - played a Wii game of this nature? That is not how you play FPS titles (or even most any title, other than lightgun shooters) on it... I can see how it would be annoying. The developers of such games saw it first though, so it's never been an issue.

Probably not for $50, but I never planned to. It looks interesting, and I'd probably have fun. Shooters are still a dime a dozen and I'm not thirsty for more. My money is saved for Little King's Story, at the moment.

Yeah I'm in. I like to support games that I think are at least trying to do something right. Plus I love a good sci-fi shooter, and Wii controls are sooo good for FPS's.

It always makes me laugh when I read little remarks like this.

Similar fanboy rebuttal... sure you could play a better shooter on your 360, but everyone knows the best FPS experiences are found on PC.

Hell no. This game fell pray to the deadly hype machine. It is a decent enough game, but I have no interest in this when more robust games are available, albeit not on the Wii.

Nope, played a bit of it and though it was overall "meh" with the exception of the controls.  Those were just horrible from what I played.

@ThomasP: No, it all depends on your preference, there is no fact on which console has the best controls for the shooter, it's all preference. Your response has as much fanboyism in it as the other response...

As of now no, the quick look very mediocre.

No because:

B) Without gaming sites:
A1) The world would end without Giantbomb and crew
B1) I wouldn't know about the Conduit.

I realize that. It was supposed to have fanboyism in it; hence the "similar fanboy rebuttal" statement. I totally agree. It's all about preference. I was just making that statement to showcase his fanboyism, but from the other point of view.
