“Glad to hear you like the game. Everyone seems to be pretty excited about some FPS action on WiiWare so if the game continues to do well, then there definitely might be a possibility of doing expansions, dlc, or even a full blown sequel.” – Hudson Entertainment site admin

Onslaught isn’t a fantastic title, but it isn’t terrible either. If Hudson listens to input from fans, then a sequel could end up being a very enjoyable game.

Contrary to reports that surfaced yesterday, Dead Space: Extraction will not take advantage of Wii MotionPlus. EA COO John Pleasants did speak about MotionPlus on Thursday at the the 2009 Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, but the discussion was mainly about EA Tennis and Tiger Woods. A representative from the company confirmed that Mr. Pleasants comments were misinterpreted. This news shouldn’t be all too surprising though because frankly, Extraction doesn’t seem to be the type of game that would truly benefit from the MotionPlus technology.

“‘Tiger’ and ‘Tennis’ will be compatible, but not dependent, on WMP. They will ship with the functionality, regardless of when WMP comes to market.” – EA Sports pr chief David Tinson

In this case, I don’t really think EA should have to wait for Nintendo to release Wii MotionPlus in order to get their products out. It’s also smart of EA to make the peripheral optional, not mandatory to play. However, I am wondering what the heck is going on with the MotionPlus…
