E3: Dead Rising Wii

E3: Dead Rising Wii

Capcom has opened the official Wii version of Dead Rising site, and I've of course ripped all the screenshots from the flash file.

wow.. who'd of thought it would be possible. Seems to be all in there.. just at a much lower resolution. Great game too.. they've obviously sorted out the legal problems if they're bringing it to the wii.. so hopefully we'll see a sequal on the 360 very soon!

Just in case anyone was thinking that this game would contain less zombies, just remember what State of Emergency 1 and 2 did last gen.
Commented on 2008-07-18 13:24:16
yeah.. by the screen shots though you can see that there are less zombies, which isnt surprising at all.

cut scenes look good...for the wii of course. But ingame just looks terrible...
Commented on 2008-07-18 13:46:26
Ingame shots are last-gen graphic stuff. As expected.

You expected to see the same graphics of 360 version?? XDDD Ingame don´t look terrible If you think what Wii can do.

It kinda turns you off when the graphics are so bad. If we had the same horsepower as 360 it would sell even more.
Commented on 2008-07-18 15:16:23
Makes me want to play it again :D
great game, bit very hard at times.
Commented on 2008-07-18 15:20:37
considering 360 is like 10x more powerful... if they add multiplayer or more places outside the mall, it'd be a nice tease for a real sequel.
Commented on 2008-07-18 15:26:14
It's not just a low res, the textures seem to be a bit worse BUT the lighting lost much, which was the main aspect that made the 360 version look good...

The cutscenes are obviously prerendered 360 stuff, because they look just the same and I highly doubt the Wii could handle them in realtime.
Commented on 2008-07-18 15:34:43
LOL @ some of you people, well of course its not guna look like the 360 version.
Commented on 2008-07-18 15:58:56
There is like night to day diference between the cutscenes and in-game images.
360 CG Video, are they?

Of course we shouldn't expect the game to look like it's (superior) 360 counterpart. But if we want to compare the two versions with each other, the wii shouldn't be excused for it's weak graphics. That's the whole point isn't it? Nintendo made a conscious decision when they chose to use current gen(NOW last gen) hardware and they shouldn't get a "get out of jail, free" card for it...
Commented on 2008-07-18 16:36:38
Of course it should be excused, because you shouldn't be comparing them in the first place, I mean seriously !!

Nintendo chose to put its RnD elsewhere, now whether you agreed with their choice is neither here nor there, but comparing the two is like comparing a frog to a tadpole.
Commented on 2008-07-18 16:49:02
looks amazing for the wii! Anyone who said other wise is retarded.

Why shouldn't they be compared? Why shouldn't the wii version of Re4 be compared to the GC(or Ps2) version of Re4? One argument that could be used in favor for the wii version(an argument that I see uncountable times in forums) is that the wii version of Re4 is superior because of it's motion sensitive controls.

Now I ask you, if the motion sensitive controls can be used as an argument for being superior, why can't the same thing be said for advanced graphics and physics? As you've mentioned, Nintendo chose to put it's RnD in controls, and Microsoft did the same for advanced hardware(resulting in better graphics). Both of these decissions should be respected and in turn they should not be excused when comparing (the same) games.

My point is this: If people suggest that Dead Rising will be better on the Wii for it's motion sensitive controls, Microsoft isn't excused for NOT having motion sensitive controls, but when people suggest(like me) that Dead Rising on the 360 is better because of it's superior graphics/physics, Nintendo automatically gets a "get out of jail, free" card for it's inferior graphics. Because if you look at it: Nintendo chose for innovative controls and inferior graphics, and MS chose for superior graphics and traditional controls so if we WANT to compare the different Dead Rising versions we SHOULDN'T excuse any of the companies choices...

LOL fair enough I guess. But you do know that in forums using the "Im not even gonna bother" reply in a condescending way is the equivalent to replying "YOUR MOM" right...?

Or you could just give it a rest. It's just a game.

Ontopic: I guess this is good for all of the wii-owners who couldnt enjoy this great game. Can't wait for the next one.
Commented on 2008-07-18 18:55:36
oh you habladores de ingles what are you thinking about?
the wii version is going to be so much better because of its game play that
will feature motion sensitive controls( a new way to play video games).
the wii gives us an unimaginable experience with each game, thanks to its
innovative control.

yes but then you wouldnt compare cod4 on the DS with cod 4 on the 360 would you and be surprised that one looked better than the other. You compare products that are on an even keel.. otherwise its always a one horse race. This is ofcourse in relation to visuals.. which is all we've seen of the game so far. Comparing playability, in how they control, its ofcourse much fairer game.

Also, just to pull you up on this little comment as frankly it sounds stupid. The only thing you, and any of us know for sure, is that dead rising has better graphics on the 360.. this does not automatically mean the 360 versions the better game. If Mario galaxy hit the 360 is would look alot better, but do you honestly think it would play better without motion control? no, it would probably lose most of its charm and playability. So which version would be the better game?

You should just should just stop making yourself look foolish over pointing out something that was never even questioned (as ofcourse it will look better on a more powerful hardware), and wait to see just how capcom make use of nintendo's unique controls to either add to the gameplay, or mess up the gameplay.

Maybe you should learn to read (...or DON'T and sound like a jackass for all I care). The point I made had nothing to do with the 360 version having better graphics(and nobody ever questioned this, I'm aware of that). What I said was: It's unfair that Nintendo gets excused for bad graphics while it gets praised for it's innovative controls while MS doesn't get the same treatment. Read the third paragraph of my post more carefully cause I'm sure as hell am not going to repeat all that just because you don't get it.

It's absolutely cheap to say "comparing control(motion sensing vs traditional) is much fairer game" who the fuck decided THAT universal rule? And of course you don't compare the DS with the 360 because they're not in the same MARKET. You're actually downplaying the wii by saying that it's in another league because it's just as much of a competitor in the console market as Ps3 and 360.
Commented on 2008-07-18 19:57:56 In reply to ApolloCreed
Actually the reason why the wii's winning the console wars this generation, and why microsoft and sony are starting to adjust their own marketing and developement, is because the wii has a different market to the 360 and ps3.

Also... did you or did you not say that Dead rising on the 360 was better because it has superior graphics? It is better visualy (which was never argued) but the better game? This was the only point in your waffling stupidity i picked you up on.. cause frankly its a foolish statement about a game you've only seen a few dodgy screen shots of and have no idea how it plays on the wii.

Now begone with your stupity!

Also, just to bring you up on this too, as i need to kill some time and might as well point out your ignorance.

Understand that for the wii this isnt bad graphics, you keep comparing the products of different hardware when theres a huge game in the power between that hardware.. which is why i said you wouldnt compare a game on the ds and the same game on the 360 and be surprised one looked better than the other. Dead rising looks to be playing to the wii's strengths, so in terms of that its pretty impressive if they pull it off. The 360 doesnt get the same treatment if a game has bad graphics but innovative controls (although which games on the 360 even relate to that?) because so much more is expected of the 360 visually, and a game coming to it looking like the screen shots above we would all know wasnt playing to the 360's strengths.

You can go now, as i'm bored with you.
