Home Sweet Home is a game which is similar to The Sims in preparation for the WiiWare online service from Nintendo. It is a home design simulation game where you will have to create environments to accomodate you clients' tastes. Will you be feng shui enough for them?

With everything at 90-degree angles, all homes within this game fail at feng shui by default!

I always hated the 45 degree games because I couldn't get used to the controls; it never felt right to me at any point.
Brain constantly having to process that up is not really up, and depending on the game it could be left or right.

I'd probably have liked 45 degree perspective more if you actually could press the direction corresponding with where you wanted to go on screen, like instead of pressing Up to go Up+Right, you would press Up+Right.

I guess that would make too much sense though.

blah.

The Wii is TRYING to ruin gaming. Whether gaming will be ruined remains up for debate. Seriously, how can anyone think this sort of thing is a good direction for games?

I wasn't talking about the viewing angle, but the angles of the objects themselves, with respect to each other. You know, just a feng shui joke.

The Wii isn't doing anything, it's lazy asshole developers with no creativity that are ruining gaming.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (19 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (20 Hours ago)
