The Free Hate

He's one of the guys that came often at the arcade. He wouldn't play though.
Just chat with me, and we would have the most vain debates about unimportant stuff like noodles (or was it sauce?) for a true chinese recipe.
I like debates about anything not important, and so does he apparently.
So, good work Simon, and don't forget to print me one.
He's a graphic designer for anything. He now works in a clothing company.
I so hate Nintendo even more now. I didn't think they were serious about the controller, but E3 confirmed even more what was already confirmed.
The controller. I think it's plain flat out crap.
First, I must tell you I had Nintendoes before, and it was fine when I was a kid, but more and more I come to dislike the fact that they keep picking the easy path.
It's alot harder to get complains when your client is a kid, or rather, a kid's parent who will never
play the game in the end. Expectancies from a kid are also way less oriented, and complex.
That being said, I have nothing against kid's games, they have the right to play too.
It's just that the average gamer has grown and is now 28. Why would not one focus on the base market? That's where the money is. A kid has to ask his parents for a game, whereas, the adult can also buy as many as he desires.
I was told a lot that being a hardcore gamer I would certainly not like the applications of the controller. Why do you think? Because it allows anyone to play, the non-gamers especially.
It does not involve skill, that's why it is designed for the non-gamer or noob.
Slow-paced gameplay focused on using the controller at its best rather than having a game made to be played as itself not straining or drifting away to make use of the pad.
It reminds me of the function the DS allows. To blow on your screen to guide a sail powered boat.
What an amazing game that is! How many games now use that function? None. Because it has to establish a gameplay where blowing is the only fun and the only control. I'd rahter buy a straw for blowing wet pieces of paper to Jason sitting next to me at work. That's making use of the human blowing capacities.
It blows. Nuff said.
Back to the remote controller.
I hate the fact that Wii is orienting itself towards the non-gamers.
Are they thinking the controller will change all that? It will make the non-gamers turn into gamers al of a sudden? I think not.
It's like turning cigarettes into cigars for the non-smokers. That's what they were waiting for to start smoking right?
I' ve put a lot of money into Nintendo products before, but seeing they've grown to turn their back on me with that money, and favor the non-gamers who have never helped them before just pisses me off. Betrayal that shisay!
I just don't see myself standing up in front of my TV playing DevilMayCry with that controller waving it like the StarWars kid.
But I'll look at you do it.
