Tennis is all fine and dandy but I think I am much more intrigued by 1:1 control for swordplay as that was the biggest letdown in terms of Wii expectations versus reality. FPS controls are great in games like MP3 and The Conduit but the early promos for the Wii had everyone expecting precise fencing and it just could not do that.

If you buy this game, you will become as awesome as these perfect people in their perfect designer homes.

Missing a word in the description there, Blim.

"the Wii seems to be able to do what everyone ????? that it would do since the first day."

The 1:1 seems pretty cool to be honest, actual movements rather than the usual random flicking we had to do in Wii Sports. Still kinda dubious about whether or not there will be any games actually worth buying... but it's a good start.

Damn, I can't even troll the Wii without writing a word badly. Fixed :D

It's not a good start, it's the usual nintendo whore-style.
Let this remind you of how nintendo works:

Pah, despite having owned a Wii since launch, it's been a constant disappointment for me. The machine had a lot of potential but it was squandered with iffy motion-controls and far, far too many weak games.

"Wow, gee, look everyone, almost three years after the Wii launched, it finally gets a controller that actually works! Who'd have thought!"

VT2009 and the accelerometer add-on have come far too late for me to care anymore (sorry!) so I'm getting the game for the Xbox 360. At least I won't have to worry about missing shots because of dodgy controls. :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: it's a shame though. 360 had a lot of these games but they are all gone now. I guess they don't only not sell on Japan, neither in the West too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: unless he takes a few truck loads of cash with him...no. (6 Hours ago)

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I wonder if Phil Spencer's visit to Japan is going to change anything. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker However of all recent Japanese games, I'd say Nier would actually sell decently on it. Of course not in Japan but I bet quite a few people in the West would buy it. I would. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Not necessarily talking about here only but in general. I think we all know that most Japanese games sadly don't sell on Xbox. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: Oh it sure is fun. Combat feels really nice, especially when you get to do the executions. The thing is, there is a shit load of combat and it can get repetitive. How much does it cost? (6 Hours ago)
