Nintendo Voice Chat Summary

By  • 

Wii MotionPlus
– Long overdue
– Is basically what the Wiimote should have been initially
– Measures subtle rotational shifts, 1:1 – Craig says it actually works, he likes sword-fighting
– Craig “called” a new Wii Sports game right before Nintendo’s conference

Wii Sports Resort
– All 3 minigames were pretty fun
– Matt liked the disc dog game, since you can see how accurate Wii Motion Plus is – worked perfectly
– Angle, rotation played a huge part where the disc would land
– Craig thought sword-fighting was really accurate as well

WiiSpeak
– Laughably made
– Can put it anywhere in the room, cord looks gigantic (based on photos)
– Made for 3 – 4 people playing on a couch
– A third-party might make a work-around eventually (headset, microphone)
– Can use wireless keyboard in AC: City Folk
– Matt will remain skeptical until he can really test it
– Nintendo playing it safe again – Craig

IGN Nintendo Voice Chat Ep. 15: Summary

By  • 

Facebreaker 
– “Party version of Facebreaker,” but title is misleading (not really minigames) 
– Graphics look great – art style is impressive, moves nicely 
– Gameplay has a lot of promise also, but Matt wasn’t able to play it long 
– Shot from the sideview, still a 3D boxing game 
– Very fast, arcadey 

Skate It 
– Still not a lot of gameplay available in the version Matt + Daemon played 
– Will be a learning curve, but it’ll be a “cool” way to play a skateboarding game – Daemon 
– Programmed intuitively 
– Grinding all about timing 
– Visually not too impressive 
– Framerate needs to be up and running – lag won’t be good for the game
