Worms: A Space Oddity

Recommended Posts

Exactly Shadow. I don't understand why an inferior handheld can have online gameplay whilst a home console can't.

I think a petition is in order. Would anyone here mind a delay till Q3/4 if they can work in WiiConnect24 and online multiplayer?
Not at all, in fact I'm definetly not buying it without online.

 

Petition, please... and hatemail.

yeah its pretty much a non-starter without online... is there one of the worms series on VC?? £7 maximum price for a VC worms or £40 for the online-free open warfare :indeed:

Someone sent a mail to Team17:

 

I just sent email to team 17 and this is what they said "NO ONLINE!!!"

 

I send and recieved the answer in January 18, 2008

 

>Hi, I am one of the biggest fan on your worms series.

>When I read IGN interview, it said worms: space odyssey will have online play.

>But the recent Nintendo Power says it is not going to have online play.

>This became one of the biggest issues in worms forums and many people are

>starting to say that they are not going to buy this game.

>I belive that worms can only be successful when people have competitive

>matches online so I do not trust Nintendo Power, but I still

>want to know the truth.

>Thank you very much for reading this email and I will be waiting for your

>answer.

>I can't wait for the new worms game.

 

Hello,

 

Firstly, thanks for taking the time to mail. We appreciate the time and

effort involved in mailing, and enjoy hearing from the people who play our

games.... we think it's one of the things that has kept the brand evergreen

for so many years.

 

In answer to the issue you highglight in your email, I'm afraid that online

will not be present in A Space Oddity. While I appreciate many gamers would

like to see that feature, we're not able to change the release date due to

contractual obligations with THQ.

 

I'm really sorry that I can't be more helpful in this instance, but hope

that you appreciate the effort and love that we *have* put into the game.

Whether you end up purchasing it or not (and I can understand if you're a

hardcore fan of the game, maybe "Worms Open Warfare 2" on PSP or DS: two

online-centric versions of the game, would be a flavour you'd enjoy more),

I'd like to thank you for taking the time to mail and say that we greatly

appreciate the feedback we get from fans of the game.

 

Best Regards

 

John Dennis

They probably think it wont be profitable enough to implement online.

And yet, ironically, they're going to lose money by not putting the online in it.

 

Oh well, that's saved me £30.

From the response it's not them, it's THQ that doesn't allow the date to budge.

 

Should we e-mail THQ now? if we do make a racket... who knows.

It s so stupid for the developers not to include online mode in games like this..I hope this situation will be improved as it hapened with the Ds..Fortunately i have already Worms 2 for the Ds which is very fun to play.

Damn. Yet again I seem to be among the few that don't consider online a must. I regret that they couldn't implement it, but am much more pleased about the prospect of playing this with real people.

 

Consider your game bought, Team17!

I'll just dig out my copy of Worms World Party, a seven-year old PC version of the game that does have online.

 

I wonder if anyone still plays it?

I guess that promoting the DS/PSP versions over the Wii one is the best way that they can argue with THQ.

Hey this is out soon, thinking of buying. Yes online would have been great, but after just finding it doesnt, I didnt feel much disappointment.

 

The only thing that will stop me buying this is if I can't buy this along mario kart or if I cant get it for less than 30 quid.
