If they include online play a la Halo 2 in this

it will sell like fucking hotcakes.

I'd buy it without online multiplayer, but with it would be incredible.  ESPECIALLY if you could play two player splitscreen AND online at the same time.

I'm having a pirate renaissance. I spent most of yesterday playing Sid Meier's Pirates!

That is one very well done game.

There's an MMO based on pirates that is slated for release in June. They are not only letting people design their own flags but also letting them model entire ships.

Does anyone know of a multiplayer pirate game?

I wonder if they could pull off an MMO game on the Wii.  From what I understand, its WiFi connection only runs at 2 or 3 Mbps, like the DS.

They could probably handle it, but I don't think they'd do it. Maybe my impression is off, but I think most wii owners are more the type to play tetris for an hour every other day than to play WoW for four hours every day. I could sure be wrong though... and the MMO space is lacking on the casual gaming front.

Check out the Pirates of the Burning Sea screenie...

I spent 4 hours on Saturday playing ToeJam & Earl with my daughter.  Yesterday we spent 2 or 3 hours playing Super Mario World.

My Wii specific games (Wii Sports, Wii Play, Rayman Raving Rabbids) sit idle in a stack...

Bah, it's pretty. Realistic looking water with a big ship floating on it and mountains in the distance.

They're saying they have plans to implement severe weather. That should be interesting.

Metroid was cool. I liked how it was all Metroidy and stuff. The Metroids were just so... Metroidic.

Console shooters only serve to frustrate me.

Console shooters are fine.  I LOVE Halo.  I haven't played Halo 2 more than once, but that's only because I don't own it and the price STILL hasn't dropped below $40.
