Oh great. Excuse me for not jumping for joy. When you said Wii games, I thought you meant it. Damn you for raising my hopes!


Screwing the rules since 1989.

Bugger? :-/

End the bloody ports now... How much did Sony pay these companies too kill the Wii.. How much?!


Lol

i never even heard of any of those games

You'll probably never hear of them again.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Ninja Bread Man shall sell in it's thousands.

That will be the last we hear of ANY of them.

It's quite funny, people on Rllmuk keep buying crap budget PS2 games, because they want to be the ones to discover the next Earth Defence Force.Smilie

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

no! No! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!Smilie

calm down dear.... Smilie i know i hate all these shity bufget ports... but Nintendo keep saying they want to make the Wii affordable to new developers, maybe three are people that work in that company that will become the next Hideo Kojima.... all im trying to say is give it a chance everyone has to start somewhere!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

The best thing that anyone can do is not to buy them. No sales will mean no further ports.

I wanna know who bought them in the first place .. I mean c'mon!

There are 10 types of people in the world: Those that understand binary and those that don't ..

I watched the video of these games on the NGamer DVD recently and they look absolutely appauling. There's only 3 different game engines for the whole lot.

They're so bad, they make feel depressed a little bit...

360 Gamertag: shiptoncraig
PSN: shiptoncraig
Steam: Guess what?

This reminds me of the shoddy PC to 360 ports from 2006, all over again. Smilie

Great news! I'll be pre ordering the whole lot. Can't wait.

(Puts on best Michael Winner voice)
"Calm down dear, theyre only a few games"

I mean people complain about the lack of games on the Wii and people complain when a small company want to throw a few ports together to make a bit of a profit.
Are you really expecting Data Design to create the next Zelda/Finaly Fantasy/Mario game that will kick ass and take names?

I was all set to defend this - until I saw the game listSmilie

If they are going to do this, then at least give it a group title:
Non-Player's Poo
or something like that. They have no right to charge more than $10 for these (about 4 pound), and even that is aa rip-off. Nintendo should on a warning on the packaging:
Buying this for your children is marginally worse than molesting them

As a serious point - am not against porting other games from the PC, PS2 or xbox - well, the good ones anyway. How about Pirates, The Movies, Ico, Breath of Fire et cetera. Only condition - they actually improve it, use the controls properly and up the graphics - or don't bother.

Temporarily banned until further notice.

*lol* cheap ripoffs of Monkey Ball, Harry Potter playing Quidditch, again, two more(!!) ripoffs of Monkey ball, Crazy Taxi in bad (means double bad), a brat with pink bunny ears(!), grinning like after a Play-Doe-joint, cheap rippoffs from cheap ripped-of movie.games like Shrek...

Co yourself a favour, dump this stuff and if you like something like 'Anubis', then go an get 'Sphinx and the crazy mummy' (At least that's what they called it in Germany). That's a underrated Gemcube-game.

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

Yikes. You people. Data Design aren't a whole lot of people, and they frequently employ freelancers for small parts of a project, so they're some of the good guys out there if you want to get your hand on some game-making yourself.

Their franchise Myth Makers seem to grow along with the studios, so I wish the best for them. At least don't blame them for making their products more widely available.

Oh Dear 5|-|4\/\/337 Lord, those games look so bad, I rather play Daikatana whilst listening to the Spice girls and eating a jar of marmite whilst washing it down with Paint stripper.

Come on how can this be good news for anyone! Nintendo have been trying to shake of the "only for children" attitude for years and some shitty company with half baked games where most the game's "Adventure" is to collect pointless items with ludicrious names, it rips off so many games its unbelieveable. Im sure a lip wristed, braindead, monkey with arthritis and a severe case of dementia would question the games motives.

The gameplay looks samey and below average, the graphics are so dire that even the amstrad Gx4000 would laugh at it, its so undetailed it makes Contra look like Crysis. The idea that anyone would want to buy these games is profound as I used to see games like these for
