Thoughts/Question:
Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles has seen a pretty large decrease in its Amazon.com sale rank compared to last week.  Last week, it was ranked #828, this week it’s ranked #1,584.
I wonder if the release of Red Steel 2 had anything to do with it?

Do you think Red Steel 2 releasing is the reason for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles’ large drop in Amazon.com’s sale ranks?

Question/Thoughts:
As I mentioned last week, Sega released House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return in March 2008 and House of the Dead: Overkill in February 2009, both on the Wii.
Do you think Wii owners will get a new House of the Dead game sometime in the remainder of 2010, perhaps with an announcement being made at E3?

I actually think it’s a good possibility.

Thoughts:
I find House of the Dead: Overkill’s Amazon.com sale rank really impressive compared to Dead Space: Extraction’s and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles’.
I don’t know if it’s simply the price of House of the Dead: Overkill being lower, or because the House of the Dead name is associated with rail shooters, as to why House of the Dead: Overkill is performing so well on Amazon.com.

Question:
Sega released House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return($16.00 new now!) on the Wii in March 2008 and House of the Dead: Overkill was released on the Wii in February 2009.
Do you think Wii owners will get a new House of the Dead game sometime in the remainder of 2010?


Also, if you do/don’t like me using a “jump break” please let me know.  I’m trying different ways keeping the main page to look more streamlined with shorter posts.

Thoughts:
You may have noticed, this week I’ve rearranged a bit.  I’ll be tracking the “rail” shooters from 2009 that were released on the Wii in 2009, together in one group, and I’ll track the “FPS” shooters on their own.
I do find it interesting that Dead Space: Extraction has the highest review score average and the highest number of reviews, but it has the lowest sales rank currently on Amazon.com and the lowest “total hours” reported.  I wonder if perhaps it’s because Dead Space: Extraction was a first time for the franchise on the Wii and it didn’t have enough advertising?
I don’t know how much advertising House of the Dead: Overkill and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles had compared to Dead Space: Extraction, or even each other.
Questions:
Have you played any of these games?  If so, what do you think of them from what you played?
If you’ve played all three of them, do you agree with the review score averages, that Dead Space: Extraction is the best “rail” shooter out of these three?
