Matt talks “Deadly Creatures” by THQ: Think that it takes place in a wasteland, maybe after man is dead. One of the final stages could be a broken down gas station in middle of the destert. “Looks like it could be pretty cool. Graphics aren’t too bad for Wii.”
-Matt mentions that some people thought that the trailer shown on IGN is “CGI”. It in fact is NOT, according to THQ. It is real-time graphics. “Hopefully that’s true..” Says Bozon
-Not one of the “dark games” that they have been talking about. More stuff coming the week AFTER GDC about it. IGN wants to have a “correct blowout” for said dark game.
-DQ: Swords: “Pretty cool, very very thin. Straightforward. Perfect for 7-year old niece.”
“A cool un-gamer game.”-Bozon. More options needed in controls. Diagonals don’t always register as they should. “Could have been on Wii-Ware for $10.”-Bozon
