Default Crusin' for the Wii

http://kotaku.com/gaming/no-no-no/cr...ver-292534.phpLink to some Pics</a>

I was going back and forth on if I should bother to post this here, but I'm curious to see what some of the folks here think. Now, as you may have guessed, Crusin' is, yes, another game in that car racing series Midway has created. They are making one for the Wii, and the thing is, it looks worse than the original many years old arcade game, worse than the N64 version...insultingly bad.

Sure, graphics aren't everything, but these are insultingly bad. I mean, god, how lazy can they be? The Wii may not have as much potential graphical 'oomph' as a PS3, or an X-Box 360, but damn. It's no reason to be lazy like this. The worst part is that this will make all the anti-Wii fanboys come out of the woodwork, not because of the system, but because this particular game looks like ass. <img src=smilies/headshake.gif> Maybe it's a sign of popularity...it's true that the Playstation has had it's fill of games that are complete bunk. :P

*edit*
And so I don't use another whole post, I've been looking for an excuse to post http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/382576this</a> awesome Mario RPG flash animation. Just watch it, it's a lot o fun. I think my favorite part is Exor/Geno, but Peach is close.

The best looking game I've played on the Wii has been Smash Bros Melee.

from the screen on there and the screens on IGN it didn't look too bad just with a really really low resolution. Cheap games also sometimes bring in possibilities of hackable stuff, so who knows.

That was awesome.

However, I still stand by my strong public opinion that Geno sucks. The ultimate team is Mario/Peach/Bowser.
