Okay students, class is in session. Please pull out your Nintendo and plug in Mega Man 2 for today’s lesson of Games You Should Have Played. If you do not already have a copy of Mega Man 2 on the NES, it is available in the Mega Man Anniversary Collection released on the GameCube, PS2, and Xbox, and is currently on the Wii’s Virtual Console for a grand total of 500 Wii Points, otherwise known as $5. Yes, this one will only set you back $5.
The Mega Man franchise has somewhat of a stigma nowadays since it constantly releases an update every year that doesn’t seem enough like a totally new game to justify the purchase. Back in the times of the NES there was only one Mega Man series and it was just called Mega Man. The first game came out and became a standard for the use of a non-linear progression through the game (you could choose any of the 6 stages to play through in any order), and each Master Bot you defeated rewarded you with a new weapon.
The Master Bots were each weak to one other weapon, so by beating Guts Man you get the ability to throw rocks, allowing you to defeat Cuts Man extremely easily. This is known as the Rock, Paper, Scissors style of gameplay that Pokemon would later go nuts with.
The first Mega Man game is good, but it wasn’t until Mega Man 2 that the franchise took off and became a legend. Instead of just 6 Master Bots, there were 8 (the series standard). Levels were perfectly designed, bosses were interesting, the difficulty was just hard enough without being overly frustrating, and the game was just fun, the most important factor in all games.
This is a game I’m going to consider a skill-building game. To be good at platform shooters, this is one of the games to start with. When you develop the needed skills here then you will be a stronger gamer in the future. No tutorials, no holding your...
Third-party developers are having a very hard time making games for the Nintendo Wii that turn a profit. However, this didn’t stop Sega from giving us MadWorld, an M-rated title that places you in control of Jack Cayman, a contestant in a reality show that’s entire point is to kill everyone else. Standard, silly, and perfect. No plot needed, just give us some mature gameplay.
MadWorld definitely delivers with its M-rating, giving Jack a retractable chainsaw arm and the strength to impale foes on any and everything, not to mention hurl them into spinning blades or crushing surfaces. Blood is everywhere, and while the reaction becomes less enthusiastic as the game progresses, it’s nice to see copious amounts of blood where it should be, i.e. in a game where you literally destroy your enemies.
A Splash of Red – Wii’s Graphics Limitations Turned Artsy
The Wii has a disadvantage with its hardware being less powerful than the competitors, so usually the graphics have to settle at something near “passable.” However, MadWorld tries something a bit sneaky by making the entire game black, white, and red for blood. Using only three colors allows for the game to get an “artsy” vibe and thus shadow the graphic limitations of the system. Some people think this is a cop-out, but in my opinion, that’s downright brilliant.
I’d rather not go on about the controls too much since they work fine, nor do I want to get into the game’s announ...
When Wii Sports debuted alongside the Nintendo Wii, the golf portion of that game left a lot to be desired. Sure, swinging the Wii remote like a real golf club was a new experience, but the lack of precision made the game more difficult than it needed to be and ultimately…. a lot less fun.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for Wii now comes to the rescue.
This game was recently released for all consoles, but the Wii version has something unique. Similar to the golf in Wii Sports, players swing the Wii remote like a golf club, but now with more precise movement that allows for more realism and better control.
The Secret Behind Wii’s Precision Golf Swing
The real winner here is the new Wii Motion Plus, a controller attachment that can sense acute motions, from turning one’s wrists to swing speed. The controller is astonishingly accurate. The Wii Motion Plus is currently bundled with the game for an extra $10 and is definitely worth it for this unique gaming experience.
Even as a long-time gamer, I think it is so surreal swinging the Wii remote and having my actions reflected on-screen with such accuracy.
Slight turns of the wrists can affect the ball’s path, much like in real golf. The learning curve is somewhat drastic, but with a little practice, anyone will be able to understand the controls. While it is undoubtedly a fun game on all consoles, players will get a more exciting experience on the Wii.
Multiple Player Option Adds Excitement
In addition to the US Open and USGA Championship, players can also go online or set up local multiplayer to challenge other players. A feature called “Play the Pros” is also available, as online users are able to post their scores against the leader boards of the real PGA.
Tournament Challenge is also available, in which players attempt to recreate famous moments from PGA history. Also, exclusive to the Wii version of Tiger’s PGA 10 is ...
