Sega, PlatinumGames discover strange new formula for creating great 3rd party game on the Wii

Is this the beginning, or the end? Has Sega risen from the ashes of its hedgehog-on-human kissing scenes? Has PlatinumGames unlocked the much sought-after “mature third party game that works on the Wii?”

Who knows. All I know is that the mags and rags are gushing over MadWorld right now. The art style works. The violence connects. A third party game has clicked. It’s not the first, but this one, especially, had a pretty big wave of hype driving it forward.

Now, will it sell? 😉
