Wii not getting Mega Man Universe
While Mega Man 9 and 10 weren’t exactly Nintendo exclusives, they were definitely made with Wii in mind, or at least the old NES. Sadly, it has been confirmed that Wii is not getting Mega Man Universe. But hey, we may be getting something else, since Kenji Inafune said there’ll be more Mega Man announcements later this year, including an “often requested thing”.
No more shovelware for THQ
Like many other developers, THQ has been getting some easy money by producing bad games that try to appeal to as many gamers (or non-gamers) as possible. But not anymore, says THQ’s Global Publishing Executive VP Ian Curran:
“We can’t afford anymore to bring mediocre games to market. There’s no room for them. You’re either a standout, best in class, or you die. We won’t bring bad games to market anymore. You can’t spend $30, $40, $50 million on a bad game and expect to make a return.”
I guess this is bad news for all the Paws & Claws and Bratz games. Sorry, guys.
Atari’s founder Nolan Bushnell likes some waggling
You people playing with traditional controllers are doing it completely wrong. Or at least more difficult, according to Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell:
“The new controllers are very natural. A lot of people don’t realize that many of the things that stifle casual gamers are picking up a current game controller after not playing video games for a long time. Triangles and x’s and trigger guards and two or three thumb motion systems. It’s really, really hard. Games have a very, very steep learning curve. All these other (motion controllers) are very, very enabling for everybody.”
