Welcome WOME!


Whats up gamers, B4 here as always to give you a heads up as to what is going on in the world of gaming. To be perfectly honest with you, I had a little bit of trouble with looking for something to write about this time.  I did, however, find something interesting about a new game that is coming to the Wii. It is called Our House, it is made by Majesco, and is developed by Budcat Creations. Let us get into some of the details about this game, shall Wii?

The reason I found this game interesting is because it almost seems similar to the HOME feature that is being brought to the Playstation 3. The only differences here are the fact that Our House will release as a game, not as a download, and that the Wii remote is incorporated into the building of a house. Things such as painting walls, sawing wood, hammering nails, etc. will be the types of activities you do in this game, which sounds like alot of work for a video game.

What I found to be strangely similar between these two ideas is how Online play works for Our House. There is going to be a feature in the game called “Neighborhood Mode”, where gamers can share and build a community. As far as a Mii being able to visit another Miis house, i am not sure about that yet, but if that is the case, then you got a Nintendo version of HOME on your hands. Granted the gameplay is different, and one might not have of all the same features as the other, but the main idea is there, the idea of creating a community in which gamers from around the world can interact with each other in one place.

In my honest opinion, I think it is cool that Nintendo is trying to find ways to bring their community of gamers together in one place. I just do not think that they should try to find ways to copy other companies ideas and pass them off as their own original ideas. When you think about it, you might as well just call this game WOME, because that is what it seems like to me, a copycat of HOME.

That is all from me this time gamers.

Until next time, this is B4 signing off,

Take Care,

    It’s funny you bring this up now cuz I was talking to my wife last night about how come she doesn’t try Viva Pinata. She said she’s to anal about building stuff cuz she tries to get it to look really nice and with Viva Pinata it seems to messy to do so. She enjoyed the Sims on PC when I had it cuz she could virtually decorate and seemed to be the only game she really got into. So though I have zero interest in this Wii game, I think she’d really like it…judging from the concept. Looks like I might have to speed up getting a Wii.

  • This sounds like a great idea, and will definitely
    attract people of all ages. Whether it’s a copy cat or not, it will sell. I believe more peeps have wiis than PS3s. And finally some way to interact with the online world other than the mii parade and Mario Strikers.

  • any idea of a release date? I’m sure my wife would like this.

  • Unfortunately no, all i could find was TBA on Gamespot and thats about it.
