Are you a Clancy fan?

Hey all your war gamers.  There is a new Clancy game coming to the Wii.  It is called H.A.W.X.  Check out some of the game features it sounds awesome.  I know I haven’t played a Clancy game yet that I have been disappointed it.  This is Clancy’s first attempt at an air combat game.

Key Features of Tom Clancy’s HAWX:

  • ENHANCED REALITY SYSTEM (E.R.S.) – E.R.S. is in-game technology that helps turn novice aviators into elite pilots of the future. The Enhanced Reality System is the backbone of the HAWX flight experience: radars and incoming missile detection, anti-crash system, damage control system, tactical map and information relay, and weapons trajectory control. E.R.S. also allows players to issue orders to their squadron, making this system as iconic to HAWX as the Cross-Com system is to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.
  • ASSISTANCE MODE – Players can ease into their flight missions and gain a level of comfort with the use of the assistance mode. Once employed, players can take full advantage of their technological support through the E.R.S and gain maximum piloting security. If the situation calls for the player to unleash the full potential of the aircraft, the assistance mode can be switched off and all safety features will be deactivated. This comes with increased risks, but allows the player advanced dogfighting maneuvers and stunning third-person views.
  • REVOLUTIONARY MULTIPLAYER – For the first time ever in the air-combat genre, players will be able to experience the entire solo campaign in four-player JUMP IN co-op mode. In PVP mode, players can challenge up to 15 friends in intense dogfighting sessions and find out who’s the top gun. Winning players are rewarded with experience points and money to unlock more weapons.
  • REALISM AND AUTHENTICITY – Players have the opportunity to take the throttle of over 50 of the world’s most famous aircrafts, as well as being able to dogfight over realistic modern landscapes that have endured years of post-war trauma.

PS2 and Wii versions (coming in the Spring, most likely in early May) will include “Broken Beat & Scarred,” “Cyanide” and “My Apocalypse” since they are not compatible with the Death Magnetic downloadable content.

A Plea to Buy 3rd Party Titles

We begged for it and now we are finally getting it; 3rd parties are finally starting to pump out some very decent exclusives for a Nintendo system. With recent releases such as Deadly Creatures, House of the Dead Overkill and Tenchu 4 (which all scores pretty decently I may add), I am urging all of you reading this post to go out and purchase at least one of these great titles.

And it doesn’t stop there gamers- The Conduit, Sonic and the Black Knight, MadWorld, MLB Baseball 2K9, We Ski & Snowboard, Marble Saga: Kororinpa, Rune Factory: Frontier Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time and many more (most of which I just mentioned will be coming in a month’s time) are all headed to Wii and all look to be a decent play.

Remember guys, it wasn’t always like this, so we should be thrilled that we are finally getting a wide range of titles and should truly reward these companies with our hard earned gaming dollars. Gamecube, Nintendo’s last generation system, had no where near the amount of exclusive titles that the Wii has and we all know how it turned out (for the record, I loved Gamecube. It just got its but kicked at retail). I am pleaing to all gamers who love them so Nintendo Wii, to please purchase some of these quality titles and support your Wii’s 3rd party companies.

Anyone planning on getting anything?
