Xseed Educates And Embarrasses With WiiWare Brain Training

By Spencer . March 30, 2009 . 1:23pm

image Drill Sergeant Mindstrong is not a localized version of Marvelous’ Discipline. It’s an entirely different WiiWare game where players enroll in a brain training boot camp party.

 

You start the game as a lowly private moving up ranks by completing brain training mini-games. Spend too much time one task or make a mistake the drill sergeant’s anger level increases. When he’s enraged punishments are issued and Xseed notes the drill sergeant isn’t afraid to embarrass players.

 

A humiliating brain training game? How did this stay under our radar for so long? Ah! It’s not related to Marvelous or any companies Xseed worked with in the past. A mysterious entity known as Hi Corporation (the Japan based middlewear one?) is the developer. Since Drill Sergeant Mindstrong has not been announced anywhere else we’ll have to wait until it comes out on WiiWare later this April to find out how cruel Xseed’s punishments are.

    This is hilarious. Comedy may just be what this genre needs to bring out something that is once again compelling. It worked for mini game collections with the first Raving Rabbids. Still would be hilarious if they went with a M rating and a few choice military phrases if you catch my drift. Comparing players’ performances to that of his own grandma could be good for a few choice laughs. Hopefully it is in the $5-$10 price range.

    How are the people that get offended easily by Wii Fit calling them fat going to take the insults thrown out by the sarge?

    Heh, I like the concept. The screens suggest multiplayer modes with 4 players. Is that the case?

    Looks like a funny multi player game I might get it.

    Currently, there are innumerable brain games specially designed for improving the brain. But in my opinion all these brain games are nothing more than the crossword puzzles. Brain cannot be nourished alone by brain games or any other brain improvement methods. It requires rich nutrition, enriched with trace elements and ballast materials to improve the brain. So taking rich brain diets is the best and natural way to develop and maintain a healthy brain.
