Big Beach Sports announced

Big Beach Sports announced

THQ announced last week the videogame Big Beach Sports for the Nintendo Wii. It's a sports collection including but not limited to american and european football, cricket and volley-ball. The first two images are now available after the jump.

I have nothing against sport games. However, it's distressing to see so many multiplicating like bacteria on a console which potential is left exploited in marginality. I can believe that casual gamers are numerous, but the hardcore niche would like, from time to time, to be able to bite in original, complete productions. Sorry, I can't bear these developers anymore.

Sorry, can i ask exactly how many of these crappy games are going to be made on the Wii?

Every other game is a shitty, sports driven pathetic attempt at a party game on the Wii....

Sheps: it took you this long to realize? ;)

Really though, it's awful. The wii does NOT need more of this shit. I would so have loved to play a game like, say, Penumbra on the wii. That would have been class. But nah, let's play some soccer with lego guys instead :P

The Wii will be known as the console with the largest amount of garbage when this gen is over.The amount of garbage developers dump on the Wii is unbelievable.If it weren't for Nintendo's own developed games it would be the old Atari days all over again.

Official Nintendo Seal indeed.

What potential does Wii have anyways? 1:1 will never be possible, it's technically impossible. The system's power is a fraction of other platforms.

Omfg seriously, Wii is starting to piss me off.

So far I only want it for Mario Galaxy and Super Smash since those are the you know, only GAME on the console.

These are just pathetic flash games (complexity wise) imported to Wii.

Good rant in the description Kudgel, agreed 100%.
Maybe you should stop giving these guys exposure?

About the game

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: yea, viewport performance in maya has improved the last year or so on geforce cards, it used to be hamstrung. (57 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But it's a pretty cool device. And the dial is really cool. If I could use that on my Cintiq I'd buy one in a heartbeat. (1 Hour ago)

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That.. totally depends on the software. Maya's viewport performance is pretty good on GeForce chips. (1 Hour ago)

    Melmoth you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (2 Hours ago)
