Smilie The third pic reminds me of Resi4

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

I reckon I'll pick this up on me PS2 Smilie

I reckon i might get the definitive version for my Wii.

I don't have a Wii (and don't plan on getting one anytime soon), so that's not an option for moi. PS2 shall have to suffice. I doubt the PS2 version as much inferior to the Wii version at all. The Wii version is probably just a PS2 port with Wii controls, anyway.

Oni-Ninja: You obviously haven't read anything about this game have you ? The PSP and PS2 versions of this game are not as good, and Rockstar are going all out on the Wii version. It really isn't a choice here if you want the best experience.

In all honesty i was just waiting for an Oni response there Smilie

Early reports have indeed be saying that the Wii version is significantly better than its PS2 counterpart.

Graphics are much better, controls are much more involved and complex as well (in a good way), not that you have much choice in the matter Oni, but for others who do - Wii is supposedly the way to go.

Personally, I'm still too grossed out by written descriptions of over-the-top kills to even consider playing the game. Smilie

Those are from the PSP version right? Graphics are worse than CCE!

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

I really dont get how this game appeals to anyone. Manhunt games havnt appealed to me and never will.

The graphics don't look that bad though.

I'd rather buy Resi 4 Remake and know that i'd get a good game

Yeah tha graphics dont look amazing, but at the end of the day these are still, and still never look as good as when you are playing the game normally.


As this game rides on controvesy, The Wii version could only accelerate this, therefore it would be in Rockstars interest to really push the Wii version, as publicity = even more recognition = more people likley to buy game because of even worse publicity.

Ah, the uniqueness of the games industrySmilie, still, I suppose generaly that any publicity is good publicity.

On subject, can't wait for this. Can me disturbed if you will, but I heavily enjoyed the first game.:cooldude:

It is even more likely than the first to be banned in Australia. I read that you have forcefully extract someone's testicles with pliers Smilie I am not into gory/violent games, so I will give it a miss. Even the thought of killing via a game kind of creeps me out. Might still get RE4 on the Wii though, at least that is horror/fantasy.

Temporarily banned until further notice.

And strangely enough, people will want it more because of that.

Thing is you would have to import it from Europe (which is technically illegal, but unlikely to be caught out), so that counts most people out. Sometimes they make the necessary deletions to get a rating, but with what I see, the game would be shorter than a teenagers first time at sex :cooldude:

Boy I hate the ratings system, and that Jack Thompson moron too. Bloody coward he is.Smilie

What's the rating system in Australia?

I think the UK's is spot on.

Even though I am not a fan of these games, censorship pisses me off. Ity is the subjectivity of it that is so annoying. Some 50 year old man who is not a games fan (have to remember that I am pushing 50Smilie) has no right to tell gamers what they can play.

In Australia, MA is the highest rating availble for games. On movies/DVDs, R is the highest rating. What is the difference? We can see an ultra violent movie but can't play a game. I blame the psychologists of the world. Trying to protect us from ourselvesSmilie

Just enforce the damn ratings rules and otherwisae, get out of our lives.

Yeah, well I'm sure the Wii version will be marginally better. The PS2 is seven years old, after all. However, I doubt the enhancement is anything more than ever so slight, and nothing to warrant the purchase of a Wii. PS2 will suffice for me.

Did I deliver? I'm not sure if I've done myself justice Smilie

The game looks like crap. That second image looks like a worse in game shot than Grand Theft Auto III on the PS2 when that came out.

The only interesting thing is that a game like this is coming out on the Nintendo.

Woooooooo!!!

It's disgusting and wrong.

So naturally, it'll sell well and be the target of blame for the next American tragedy.

Obviously didnt read his post did ya. Your right about one thing, its not a choice on which version he gets...as he doesnt have a Wii...dumbass.

I will have to pick this up and play it on ma PS3...hope it works, knowing Sony it wont though Smilie they need to get the backwards compatability sorted.

Oh Dear God. Rockstar's non-360 games really do look shockingly bad don't they?

FUCK that's awful...


God, seriously, my eyes...

Still a proud member of the 'omfg amazing water in games' society

Jack Thompson is getting ready to kill.
