Table Tennis has just been released on Wii, and here are the first ten minutes of the game. You'll see menus obviously, and the long first set of one of the first three tournaments's quarter-final. Some impressions and of course the video after the click.
To be honest, it's far from the Xbox 360 version. The feel is disappointing, and there's a strong lack of control due to the mediocre movement recognition. Also, the rather realistic take of the game imposes lengthy sessions, sometimes more than 10 minutes without interruption, and it can be frankly tiring for the wrist because you need to whip the air at each stroke of racket.
But above all, the relative depth of Table Tennis' gameplay doesn't translate too will with the wiimote, which is oftenly manipulated with a bit of confusion, and some buttons are quite hard to reach - especially in the heat of the moment. In short, the game pays its origins and its lack of simplicity, on a console where you don't want to complicate your life. Wii Sports can sleep peacefully.
Distribution is definitely a problem. I've heard Switch is pretty easy to find in certain parts of Europe. Not so easy in the USA. (3 Hours ago)
like here (norway) i know people who preordered it, none got it. so they can't have sent many this way. Personally i wasn't planning on getting one, but i feel sorry for those who tried and failed. (3 Hours ago)

the whole nes-mini thing was lame. i understand they planned it as a limiteds-time release so people could get something cool for christmas 2016, but when they misjudged the marked (which they said.. (4 Hours ago)
I stopped trying to make sense of Ninty's decisions a long time ago lol. "This cheap machine prints money? naaaah" (5 Hours ago)
I guess it was supposed to be a limited run in the first place.. but you'd think it'd be a pretty easy way to make money too. (5 Hours ago)
yeah they certainly decided against trying to meet demand. They probably wanted to focus on Switch demand above all (5 Hours ago)
