Blast Works TMI (Too Much Info)

blastworkslogo.jpg
TMI is WiiHD's new mash-up format post for games with loads of info out. This will often be done around a game's review season. Rather than spamming the front page with tons of posts, games selected for TMI will get one, over-sized, behemoth post. Today's TMI is Blastworks, an impressive freeware PC game upconverted to Wii with tons of free DLC.
metacritic: 86/100 (based on 5 reviews as of the time of this post)

Wii Fanboy: 9.5/10

For what it is, Blast Works is nearly perfect — it's an excellent sequel to a great shooter, and a brilliant, easy-to-use system for creating more shooters.

IGN Wii: 8.1/10 Impressive

But overall, this is a great value that provides almost limitless replayability. If you consider yourself a shooter fan you should definitely check it out, but I also recommend it to gamers eager to unleash their creativity and design their own BlastWorks.

1up: A rating

It's understandable that not every gamer wants to make games themselves, but even if you're just a shooter fan and not a creator, you should still give Blast Works a chance.

Kotaku: Doesn't rate

Blast Works feels refreshing and different, and it seems to me that there are countless solid hours of playtime there for the detail-oriented.

Hit the Break for a videos including a video review, a gallery of some user-created content and some more links.

The Conduit Unloads Visual Goodies

And it still looks good. WiiHD has a lot of hope for the Conduit, the Conduit's Quantum 3 Engine, and High Voltage Software in general. These screens do nothing but bolster that hope.

Hit the break for a few of them, and then head over to Nintendo Wii Fanboy for the rest.

Red V Blue

redvbluevy3.jpg
Does red have an unfair advantage? I mean besides Donut, of course. According to a study of 1,347 matches of Unreal Tournament 2004, red does. If WiiHD had done the study, we would have studied 1337 matches, but the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and the journal Cyberpsychology & Behavior didn't ask us. The Denmark study had the red team winning 55% of the time, even though after that many matches you'd expect it to all settle into even territory.

The University suggests that this may be because red is a psychological distraction to men, on the possibly evolutionary basis that "men flush and turn red when they're angry." Well yes, in Denmark that probably is a common reaction of men to anger. At WiiHD headquarters redness is mostly a side effect of exhaustion, inflicted by such actions as walking across a room, or lifting a glass to get a drink. As of the time of this posting, the University of Denmark has not commented on this alternate explanation, that Blue players are exhausted by watching their red counterparts shoot at them, and are unable to press buttons as fast. We'll let you know when they confirm our theory, but in the meantime hit the break for a little of the classic Red Vs Blue by Rooster Teeth.

If you haven't seen it, you should. NSFW (language).

Star Soldier R Tournament

ssrud1.jpg
Category: Better Late than Never
Starting May 27th, Hudson began running a tournament with their new Star Soldier R shooter for WiiWare. You have until June 24th to register at their website, and then try to get the high score in the 5 minute mode. Just for registering for the tournament, you also get entered into a competition free sweepstakes with a random chance to win some swag.

The award distribution is a little odd, as prizes don't go to the first 3 places. Instead only the top scorer, the 10th scorer (in honor of this being the 10th Star Soldier game) and 16th scorer (in honor of the freakishly fast trigger finger of Takahashi Meijin) get prizes. Hit the break to see the prize list and some SSR video footage.

WiiHD Currents: Free Radical says Wii has huge FPS potential.

timesplitters4lz9.jpg
Or at least, Derek Littlewood did. In all the time the Wii has been out, FPS development has been going downhill when it should have been getting better. 1st generation wiimote controls all suffered in one way or another, but with Metroid Demos proving the IR Pointer's potential, Developers should have gotten the point. Instead, the FPS that hit the Wii in the first cycle, like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor are seeing cutbacks, leaving the Wii entirely, or sending in backbenchers. See the quote after the break.

I came across a gameplay montage on gametrailers.com today. Wikidot won't allow me to embed from that source, so I loaded it into youtube. See it after the break.
