So I just wrote a week or so ago about how much I loved Resident Evil 4 on the Wii and about how I couldn’t wait for the next installment to come out next month. So I go to my local GameStop and try to reserve a copy only to find out that it won’t be available for the Wii.
Let me make something perfectly clear here: If the Wii is perfect for anything, it is perfect for shooter games. What’s not to love about wielding your Wii-mote like a .45? Taking dead aim at the screen and firing away?
Yet they have decided against a creating a dumbed down Wii version, and I don’t think I could stand to play it on any other system. So what am I going to do? Hope that when Nintendo comes out with its Wii 2 next year that Resident Evil 5 is available for it, I guess. Of course, knowing how hard it was to get the first Wii, it may be 2012 before I get to play it.
Anyway, just wanted to share my deep disappointment, particularly since Quantum of Solace was such a piece of garbage, and I was really looking forward to this…
