Rail Shooter Overview + Non-games Related Gear

To accompany my recent articles on Dead Space Exraction and Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, please find my overview of the state of rail shooters on the Wii in the link below.

The State of Modern Rail Shooters on the Wii

It’s been a long time since I’ve contributed work to Racketboy, so I’m pleased that I was able to produce something substantial. In lieu of all the buyer guide-themed articles that have been released on this topic, I decided to concentrate on the evolution of the genre. Usually the rail shooter gets a unfair wrap by the mainstream media, so I figured that it’d be appropriate to make a counterbalance.

Also, in preparation for my eventual return to China (and the cut in posting frequency that it will bring), I have decided to better pool my resources by continuing to upload articles on movies, comics, anime, manga and books here, as well as games. These articles tend to be more commentary/observation-based rather than gung-ho analysis. I’m considering lowering the posting frequency to a new post every 3 days so that I can maintain a regular posting schedule while I settle down in my new home. We’ll see what happens.
