The family of very, very weird Wii
games will soon get a new member - a role playing game (RPG) exclusively designed for the console - that promises to be a "lifestyle,
action packed RPG
". And since it's named Opoona, I was really tempted to name this piece of news "wii gets a poo? Nah!" but I decided not to do it, since people might believe that I have something against uncool silly games.
As you probably figured out already, you will be the unlucky Opoona - a young boy that crashes with his ship while on an interplanetary family vacation on a strange planet and has no other options than to survive. Suicide in Wii video games is not allowed. So, Opoona must find a job, search for his siblings and fight against strange creatures called the Dark Rogues - strange name, since the creatures in the game seem to be rather pink and fluffy.
But everything becomes crystal clear when you find out that using Wii's nunchuk you throw powerful energy bonbons against the enemies, manipulate their trajectory - and you will do all these using only one hand. When you're not fighting, the "lifestyle RPG" begins: you will meet new people, work and eventually develop relationships and uncover a broader range of activities including new jobs and clues to new adventures. I am 100% percent sure that anything of a sexual nature is not included in that "broader range" part.
So, if you like RPG games like Diablo, Gothic, Neverwinter Nights and so on, you will probably consider this game a joke. On the other hand, if you are one of the ever growing casual gamer community (and about 4-5 years old) you will probably love the game. It's a lifestyle Wii RPG game, even though it has nothing to do with reality, life-like visuals and so on. But one can never know how aliens really look like... Maybe you'll find out when the game will be released on the 25th of March this year.
