MDK 2 gets WiiWare release

Monday, 9 May 2011 19:55 GMT By Debabrata Nath

BioWare wasn’t always famous only for Baldurs Gate or Mass Effect: it had also developed the sequel to one of the greatest third-person shooters in gaming history – MDK.

The sequel will make its appearance on WiiWare today, becoming the first TPS title from the developers to do so.

MDK saw you embark on a mission as Kurt Hectic – janitor of inventor Dr. Fluke Hawkins – to save planet Earth from from an alien invasion.

Bioware made the sequel for publisher Interplay back in 2000. Staying true to the formula, which made the first game a cult classic, they also added playable bits for Dr.Hawkins and his six armed robotic dog, Max.

MDK 2 was released for PC and Dreamcast in 2000, and a port for Playstation 2 was made in 2001.

You can experience it on the Wii  for 1,000 WiiWare points now.

    MDK 2 is completely awesome, one of the best games I’ve played throughout my gaming history. And so off the wall and out of left field, frequently so! It can be a bit hard, but it’s worth it.

    It’s also worth noting that this game is available on for $5.99. That’s the PC version, but it runs just fine on Win 7. I know, since I have Win 7 and I bought it from there.

    It was released on more platforms than you give it credit for. Please stop doing that. Passing on narrow views or limited understanding benefits no-one.

    #4 4 years ago
  5. ManuOtaku

    #4 yes is true, but the leading platform on both games was the Dreamcast then ported to other platforms, so they are in fact dreamcast Classics, the dreamcast versions let you select the difficulty level which the other ported games didnt.

    #5 4 years ago
  6. OlderGamer

    What difference does it make? The game was fantasic on Dreamcast. Why should you care what system I played it on?

    Ya know what for the sake of not giving you fuel to troll with, lets not.

    Whats systems are we talking about?

    PC, PS2, DC, … maybe Gameboy?

    Did I leave a platform out?

    And I am going to go really nuts and crazy on you here. You ready? Of every game that was out for PS1/PS2 and DC, I liked the DC versions better. From Capcoms high quality 2D fighters to MDK2 to anything else I can think of off the top of my head. The DC just did them better, IMO.

    And yea MDK2 was a classic hit on Dreamcast. But in saying that I owned and played it on one system, doesn’t take anything away from any other system that it was also released on. If you enjoyed the same game on PS2 or PC good for you. Its a great game, ‘lest we can agree on that right?

    #6 4 years ago
  7. OlderGamer

    He is just trolling, ManuOtaku.

    Man I miss the DC.

    #7 4 years ago
  8. Kerplunk

    A ‘leading’ platform doesn’t dismiss (or warrant the dismissal) of the existence on other platforms.

    If it did then a certain topic created on the forums last week would have no ground whatsoever to have been created.

    Is a book better depending on the type of paper it’s printed on? Does the downloaded version of a piece of music merit more artistry than it’s boxed counterpart?

    Truly great games transcend their platforms.

    If you’re incapable of mentioning a game without attaching it to a specific bunch of circuitry then you’re incapable of assessing a game for what it is. The corporations have successfully manipulated you exactly where they can profit the most by you. Well done.

    Ah, and OG jumps straight into his other role: accusing someone that doesn’t share his view of the world as a troll and is the first person to start with the name-calling. What a fine example of a mature and reasonable member of the community.

    I substantiate my point with reasoning. You just go out and start calling people names and demonstrate hypocrisy.

    Put your mask back on OG, your true face is showing.

    #10 4 years ago
  11. ManuOtaku

    #8 yes is true but again the Dreamcast version was the one that came with more features (let you select the difficulty level) , thats why it was the lead platform and thats why it is the best of them, for that is a classic including the other port of the games that made the classic more classic.

    #11 4 years ago
  12. OlderGamer

    “Is a book better depending on the type of paper it’s printed on?”

    But in terms of a video game were need to take into consideration things like frame rates, controler comfort, color saturations, contrasts, crispness, resolution and so on.

    If the book had dark blue fonts printed on black paper you might get close to what I am saying. The story doesn’t change, but the readers enjoyment of it can.

    I am not even going to address the rest.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. Kerplunk

    @11 You’re reaching now. And, dare I say it, eager to stand on the shoulder of someone else’s short sighted argument.

    Does that mean I’m being ganged up on by two other community members? Am I being hounded? Oh woe is me. How unfair!! Someone call a moderator to address this injustice!

    As far as game development is concerned – no console is ever a lead platform. In game development the computer version is always the lead platform (even on platform exclusives). Simple logic should tell you why.

    @12 If you REALLY believe that then you miss the entire point of gameplay for what it is and have demonstrated how wide of the mark you truly are. Your argument boils down to what font the text of a book is written in and how thick the paper is to determine the quality of the story. Great games can be black-and-white and run at 10 frames a second.

    It’s genuinely tragic that you can’t see what gameplay is without attaching it to specific circuitry. This is what many ‘gamers’ believe counts today. As an ‘older’ gamer you really should know better, but it sounds like the corporate marketing spiel and media sites have sold you the idea of gaming that generates the most ad revenue and marketing dollars. What a great shame.

    Your O.G. bashing and constant, daily moral tirades is incredibly tiresome, mate. Get a hobby.

  15. Kerplunk

    I have a thing for people that are two-faced, lie, spread misinformation and ignorance. If you’re someone that does that a lot and you do it where I can see it then I’m likely to point it out.

    And, with all due respect Michael, you’re really the last one who should be lecturing anyone else on moral tirades.

    MOD! I’m being unfairly harrassed by three community members because I’m expressing my opinion of gaming. MOD! Ban them! MOD! It’s not fair! :)

    Remember: Talk about the games. Michael, your only contribution has been to talk about a community member. That doesn’t really fit in with what was outlined in Pat’s forum post earlier on. Oh, hang on, I’m sure you’ve given yourself a special exception as to why rules don’t apply when you want to make such a post. Right? :)

    I guess you can all just resort to character slurs and name calling now. And then act that you’re superior human beings to other people. Wouldn’t be the first time, eh guys?

    Sooooo much hypocrisy. Always by those that regard themselves as the pillars of the community.

    I sold my wii so wont get the chance to try this.
    Mind you I probably missed quite a few gems.

    @17 Yup, it seemed a bit leftfield of Bioware at the time. The Sonic RPG on DS was also one of their more slightly random efforts.

    #20 4 years ago
  21. OlderGamer

    Not that it is that big of a deal reask, but you could prolly grab a DC second hand for cheap. But at this point, like a lot of Legacy systems, some of the then amazing games don’t hold up well today graphicly. The gameplay is still solid, might be something to think about sometime.

    Now that I think about it, why isn’t MDK2 headed to Live/PSN? Seems like it should. Maybe too much work dealing with HD upgrades.

    @19 You’re a scratch record.

    I think pretty much everyone here will safely agree that you’re the one coming into threads in an attempt to harass a member of the community and that we are simply defending the person being attacked.

    To use a relevant analogy… if you attempt to physically attack someone, the guy protecting himself isn’t going to go to jail if he’s got witnesses to the crime. You are.

    Pat’s no idiot. Don’t expect him to humour this kind of crap for very long.

    I mean seriously, you’re getting butthurt over a guy stating he liked the game on a certain format. Your reaction is completely out of proportion to the situation.

    I can also safely say that I’ve never considered anything even remotely approaching a “pillar of the community”. Not even close. I’ve never viewed myself as any sort of particularly big member here, especially lately being incredibly inactive.

    Regarding the topic though, I do have something to say – I think putting this on the WiiWare Store and not the PlayStation Store or Xbox Live Marketplace is a missed opportunity.

    I loved this game on the PC, and it has a lot of nostalgic charm, but I don’t think I can really bring myself to turn on my Wii just to play this…

    #23 4 years ago
  24. Kerplunk

    @21 MDK2 HD is alleged to be coming out on PC later this year via Beamdog“. The link yields some snippets of information and references to the MDK2 HD in it.

    If so it’s possible that a console HD version may follow. It’s equally possible that between Shiny, Interplay and Bioware, the rights to it might be tied up and turned inside out and may never happen.

    @23 That’s the second post you’ve made in this topic that’s entirely about hounding another member of the community and have not made any contribution to the topic of the article. Oh, but if you behave like that, it’s for a good reason isn’t it. Yes. Entirely different.

    “I’ve never viewed myself as any sort of particularly big member here”

    Your persistent faux-authoritative tone and your recent remarks on how Pat should run his site (including mentioning he should “just have the balls..” to do what you say) suggests quite the opposite.

    Why is it always the people that are constantly attempting to dictate what others should and shouldn’t be and acting like governers – why is it that they ALWAYS paint themselves as innocent little lambs?

    I miss the Dreamcast too. The Dreamcast Ecco version was one of the best undersea games I’ve ever played, far more enchanting than any, even Aquaria. Plus there was Skies of Arcadia, too, which was brilliance in and of itself. And so many other great games.

    I miss the Dreamcast. But, oh well. It’s dead. And it’s makers have left the hardware industry.

    Fortunately they still publish some kick-ass game like Yakuza and Valkyrie Chronicles (oho ho!). Law of averages say they’ll make a fun Sonic game sooner or later too.

    That seems like he said something on the subject to me.

    And, there’s no warning either? Just straight timed bans off of first offence? Is tea just the poster child for future discipline as past poster shatner I believe it was is?

How irrelevant is that?! He LIKED playing the game so why do you care? What a complete arsehole… Also, o Connor, I don’t know why tea seems to target you, you have never been biased towards one thing or another from my experience on this site, he just seems like he’s obsessed with you… I for one would love to see him kicked from the site, he doesn’t seem like someone who enjoys games atall, just some c**t who enjoys being a ps3 zealot

    I have a Wii and have been a gamer since the early 90′s. Never even heard of this game before. But by the comments (aside from the childish bickering) I may think about downloading it. I hope it’s worth it.

    Do what you like pat but if its that easy to “piss you off” I take it there will be an uprising in bans. I also hope that was a joke guided at me seeing how I’m one of your reasonable visitors.

    I hope it comes out for xbla and psn too! :) and yeah, I heard about river city ransom sequel aswell! That would be awesome, but, is it a Nintendo exclusive? I can’t remeber who published the original? These days, you need to own all the major consoles, I need to pick up a Wii again although I’m tempted to wait cause of project cafe’s backwards compatiblity…

    I believe it’s going to be released on all three consoles. That’s why I make sure I got all 3 systems. So I can play all of the exclusives. I just have to work on getting a computer. I just don’t have $2000 to spare LOL

    @51 – yea that seemed quite unnecessary on Pat’s part. Lex has always been a reasonable commenter =/

    Threatening him with a ban for asking questions is hardly reasonable. I wont argue with TEA’s ban ofcourse that was totally fair i believe.

    @aha I generally don’t contribute to any sites. I grew to like vg247 a lot within the first 3-4 months I joined. But, within the last 2-3 mnths I have been losing a lot of respect for this site. I’m feeling awfully inclined to leave this site and just go to something like ign and no longer beapart of this community. I think this is the last site I will ever share my opinion with outside of political debates. Atleast they come off as douches from the beginning and don’t hit you with surprises

    @58 – I have no time to listen to you complaining about warnings, and who did what first, and all the rest of it. Nor do I have time to sort out all these pathetic little squabbles among people that really should know better. Quite frankly, I don’t care if I’m being “reasonable” or not. If you want to go, go. If you want to stay here and talk about games and be a pleasant individual, you’re more than welcome. It’s entirely up to you. If you can’t see that whining about me banning someone as overtly offensive as tea is going to “piss me off,” then all the best. OK?

    I have fallen deeply in love with Pat 2.0.

    This new Pat is bold, empowered and distinctly old testament. Sweeping away the shite and spraying his musk on the forum. I can almost hear ‘you are mine now bitches’ when a page loads!

    Yes, I’m easy. But power is sexy! ;D

    As for MDK, boy that was a wacky game. As French as it gets. Enjoyed it on the Amiga as I remember. Please dont troll me for that Kerplunk, oh and leave OG alone. The guy is possibly the least offensive poster here and doesnt deserve the abuse you continually hurl at him.

    For some reason MDK2 slipped under my radar. Would love to check it out though so fingers crossed for an XBLA release.

    @63 Given that you’ve hurled expletives and abuse at me (and others) more than once for expressing an opinion that didn’t align with yours – I think I’ll just regard your suggestion on behaviour as merely another example of two-faced hypocrisy from someone who isn’t able to follow the rules that they expect others to follow.

    You can grab MDK2 for peanuts from Good Old Games and it’ll fly on a moderately competent PC. No need to miss out on a good game.

    No where near in my post was I “whining” pat. But, my given right to express how I don’t appreciate your miss guided anger is still a right I reserve. If all it took was a few question to “piss you off” then that shows little restraint in emotions on your part. Abuse your power in any way you feel but I will state my opinion regardless. I did not ask for your sympathy nor beg for it. I ask for your reasoning which is not a crime.

    I don’t do kiss ass, I will simply state how I view and wish to view things. Your interpretation on what my objectives were was quite hilarious though. Tea is a big boy and can handle his battles. But, if I were to choose to stay in a community such as this one I reserve the right to understand exactly what kind of rules are to be implemented and I am to be subjected to. 1 liner rules such as don’t piss pat off leaves. A lot of the people on the site clueless and guessing seeing how we don’t think like pat in the first place
