Miyamoto not sure about Haze

While at E3, David Doak, head of cult British game developing firm, Free Radical, received a visit from Shigeru Miyamoto, Lord of all Video Games, himself.
Shigsy came to see Haze, the new first person shooter under development by Free Radical. The game will be unlike the previous TimeSplitters games the company is famous for, and will be a more serious affair in terms of story and gameplay.
The main hook of this game is that you can inject yourself with ‘Nectar’, a performance enhancing drug that makes gun fights much easier to avoid, pre-empt, and finish. Problem is, over-dosing makes you go Schizo, losing control over the trigger and unable to tell friend from foe.
And according to an interview in Edge with Dr Doak, it’s this drug feature, along with the increased violence, that worries Miyamoto-dono.
Stereotypically, Nintendo are known for their self-claimed ‘family games’, games which steer clear of blood and over the top violence, and instead concentrate on fun gameplay everyone can enjoy. Shigsy is a large force driving this gaming ethos, so it’s not surprising that he doesn’t like the drug side of the game.
Whether or not you agree with him, Haze is slowly shaping up to be quite the shooter, and is having a worldwide release on 23rd November.

every1 is entitled to their opinion, and Miyamoto is too! personally i think that those people that want just good old family type games, and nothing else, are just crack-pots, or on drugs themselves!! HAZE looks amazing and will be 1 of the first big shooters for PS3, so ill definiteley be buying it along with countless millions more people!!

First of all Miyamoto is no lord of all games. If he was where is the Halo or Killzone killer app. All he got is Mario and Link. i think pikmin was his hardcore game. This is the 21st century nintendo might fool many people but not all. I not afraid on niny because i got Sony.

Miyamoto has never made a violent game so how would he know. Also he's Japanese and they dont like FPS so it was sort of stupid for him to visit them to begen with. I like Miyamoto but who cares what he thinks about FPS.

He can't be lord of games, or else i would have either heard of HIM or what he have done to give himself that title.

It's a freakin stimulant!!! Oh, I can already see the ignorant parents saying this game will teach kids how to shoot up heroine....*Walks off*

Dude what the heck is "Shigzy" getting his panties up in a bunch about? There is much more violence in Manhunt 2 then in this game. He's just pissed that his gamecube 2, I mean Wii, can't handle a game of this caliber.
