EA Playground video

EA Playground video

Inspired by the success of Wii Sports, the mini-games collection that is EA Playground targets the casual gamers for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii systems. The Wiimote handling is shown through a video of Slot Car Racing included in the package which is similar to MicroMachines. But it seems the car is driven alone and that the moves are just added for fun rather than being important.

I like to think this could actually be really fun. But you should probably preface this by saying this is just video of the Slot Car Racing.

They should release that as a XBL Arcade game.. But offcourse they wouldn't be able to charge full price for it like they probably will on the Wii.. So yeah..

I have to admit, the video looked fun. I might rent the game to see how it fares, but the visual and audible presentation seems to be towards a younger audience (which I do not mind). However, you have to tell yourself, who does not have enough self worth to let someone else affect his/her desire for an enjoyable experience.

    GriftGFX Maybe they just wanted to avoid the impression that it's a WiiU port machine. (58 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea I expected a few more ports. There's stuff that won't work because of the loss of the second screen.. but Smash and Mario Maker seemed like obvious choices. (59 minutes ago)

    Melmoth given the no BC, smash is bound to be re-released on the switch in a similar way to mario kart 8 to get more games out within the first year (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Smash seems like an odd thing to leave off the table. Maybe they're holding it to help fill out the year. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX would have been nice launch games. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It'll make or break the launch.. which seems fine if pre-orders are any indication. I think filling out the spring should be their main worry. MK8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 help but... (1 Hour ago)
