No mature games on the Wii? Puh-leeease. Sega catered to your every limb-severing whim with The Conduit, Madworld, and House of the Dead: Overkill, but you were too busy petting Poniez and partying with Babiez to notice.
So Sega cleaned up its blood-spattered act and swore off mature Wii games forever.
Except that, turns out, it actually didn’t. Well, kinda.

NoA boss Reggie Fils-Aime has expressed surprise at the fact game fans want to play games all the time. Came as a shock to us too, that.
“The gaming enthusiast that buys a tremendous amount of games is truly insatiable,” he said, speaking in a VentureBeat interview.
“As an example, in March, we launched Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In April, we launched Mario Kart. In later April, we launched Wii Fit.
“Then, in July, at E3, they say, ‘where are the games?’ They say they want the next Mario game. Super Mario Galaxy isn’t even a year old yet.”
The phrase “open goal” springs to mind. Read the full thing through the link.

Speaking to VentureBeat, Sega US president Simon Jeffery has said he believes no one’s satisfying the Wii-owning hardcore. We have a hunch he may be right.
“The Wii is a great opportunity for hitting hardcore gamers,” he said. “No one is doing that.
“With “Mad World” from Platinum Games, we are trying to show that millions of Wii games want to move on to mature games. They don’t have to have an Xbox 360 to do that.”
It’s not just the hardcore stuff lacking on Wii, though. There’s “good” games in general.
“There is a lot of crap coming out for the Wii in general,” Jeffery added. “But if it’s not a good game, it doesn’t sell. That flood of crap will die down as publishers become more coherent.”
