Kriyasurferchapel: true... but you wouldn't be moving your body much with monopoly. I'm just saying, this is what I saw when my girlfriend brought her wii to the dorm. This was just Wii Sports. People were gathering around in the lobby. They weren't just staring at the screen.
jstewNintendo caters to the casual gamer market and they are successful in that regard.
chapelim not saying it wont be successful, shit it will blow apart both the 360 and ps3 sales wise, but that doesnt mean the games will rock, there will be a few jems, but cmon, there are only so many ways to use the controller
Kriyasurferjstew: I think so too.
chapel: hehehe, it won't be very attractive to hardcore gamers, no.
chapelim just looking at it from a creative standpoint
people are touting it as real innovation in gaming
Kriyasurferchapel: as for the controller... a friend of mine wants to buy one and shove it into an UAV so that the controller can acts as sensors
chapel: have you played a Wii?
chapelwhen sadly it is just a gimmick, it does nothing to forward gaming to being an artform, or anything more than a casual entertainment
only at a demo unit
it was fun
didnt get to play long
i might get a wii so i can play with my little sister and stuff, i need to exercise more
Kriyasurferchapel: Yeah. Hope you get another chance to play for it. I havn't played for it for hours, but I've already thought of some ideas I'd like to do with it.
jstewget DDR if you need exercise
davedthe controller actually is novel.. my 3 year old niece was owning people in wii tennis.. and she cant work an xbox controller
it's more intuitive
chapelbut again, I am aspiring to develop games eventually, and to me, the wii is nothing more than a glorified minigame machine
lol shes 3
i dont think ms was figuring a a 3+ year old demographic into their controller design
davedok, same goes for my mother then
chapelspecially with the original xbox controller, that was huge
davedmy point is the controller is more intuitive
so yes, it is innovative in that regard
zorglu_wii is getting support on linux
chapelits not intuative to the point that any game can be instantly picked up, but for the most part, with certain games, the controller can be almost natural for most people to use
zorglu_which will be fun :) just for that i like wii :)
KriyasurferRuby on Wii?? Mhmmm
chapelbut its not innovative
jstewI'd like to code with the wiimote
chapelyou can

Kriyasurferchapel: well... Rails is innovative in that it is intuitive, and someone with decent programming skills can pick up on it very fast.
zorglu_which os run on wii ?
chapelKriyasurfer: it also is advanced
zorglu_a custom on ?

chapelyeah custom
davedinnovative - definition: being or producing something like nothing done or experienced or created before;
