wow without a doubt, the Wii controller really blows down the door to some awesome possibilities!
LucasArts has been really really coy since the Wii controller announcement about a Jedi Lightsaber game, but it would be absolutely ridiculous if they DIDN'T make one.
"Cover me Porkins."
"I'm right behind you Red-2."
Fuck Nintendo, fuck the Wii and fuck all the fanboys who think the Wii is perfect for every fucking game ever made.
Red Steel notes if you turn the remote onto its side, for choosing to shoot "Gangsta"-style.
Excitetruck steers by holding the controller NES-style and treating it like a steering wheel.
So it can detect some rotational movement, but I've no idea how much on any one axis. 90 degrees? 180? A full 360?
I'm not so sure that Will will get so many exclusive Star Wars games in the future, since those were made by Factor 5, who made some well-regarded sound libraries for the N64, and whose management has said recent unkind things about Wii in the press.
Was thinking the same thing, but who needs a wii - just get a wii remote, a bluetooth dongle and a copy of MAME running on the old PC :)
As for me I've just ordered a Gyroscopic pad from e-dimensional as it sounds a little less fiddly...
If it's crap I'll try the wii
Okay, G-Pad arrived yesterday.
Bottom line - forget it :( It's just not accurate enough for crosshair use.
Basically once you're out of the centre position the crosshair jiggles around something chronic, and it isn't just Starwars. Even in the windows calibration/test screen the result is the same :(
Shame really, otherwsie it felt like a real alternative for the yoke - maybe once they fine tune the wii code, or maybe when a PC adapter comes out for the PS3 controller we'll be in business.
