Hey guys! It's time for a new installment of the Negative World podcast. This episode, nacthenud, NinSage and DrFinkelstein discuss about the news, the backward compatibility of Nintendo's controllers and the IPs born in the Wii's lifecycle that we would like to get brought back. There is also a short tidbit about Backlaugust, enjoy!
I'm really digging this Rhythm Thief music. I was really excited for the game earlier this year, but then it got delayed for no reason whatsoever (it released in Europe in April) and then it got sent to die by releasing the same week as Theatrhythm. I'm definitely going to pick it up at some point, especially since the MSRP is only $30. (And it's available on Amazon!)
Also, I agree with Nac that Motion Plus / Remote Plus should be the standard. I don't think they should support the original remote outside of "Wii Mode". But then, they probably should have included one in the box. Bleh.
EDIT: If Fink is looking for a new Little King's Story, New Little King's Story is coming out on Vita next week.
Finally listened to this, good job guys, very fun to listen to the Wii U pricing predictions after the fact.
Also, concerning the controller issue... yeah I'm in the vast minority here but I really hope Nintendo moves away from requiring Wiimote and Nunchuck and not using the WUG. I want every games to at least have the option for WUG controls. I think they way they are handling Pikmin 3 is the right way to go, if you have the old controllers and prefer them it's a great way to play, but if you just want to use the standard controller that's supported as well.
@DrFinkelstein New Little King's Story is a bit of an oddity. It isn't a sequel, it's more of a remake. It has all the same areas and enemies and classes and everything as the first game, however it features new graphics and a new story. So it's basically the same game with a different story and style. I've seen many screenshots of it, and the new style looks pretty bland and uninteresting compared to the original. The King is also older, so he isn't so little anymore...
Well on the podcast, I think one of the reasons Fink was suggesting a Wii U sequel was to take advantage of the touch screen, so maybe that will add something to the Vita version? I dunno. I was excited to play the first one and for some reason never did. I want to check this one out, but it may pass me by just as the Wii game did.
Just got around to this now for some reason, but I actually DIDN'T know that old remotes would work. I thought that ONLY Wii Motion+ ones would do the trick; I think I even asked someone in chat before if the attachment would actually work (as I thought for some reason some games wanted you to have a single-unit Wii Motion+, if that makes sense?).
Thinking about it now though; won't the Wii U GamePad and the "Classic" controller be the primary inputs for most games? I mean, besides Nintendo Land that has you doing super-simple things, how much remote action can there be out there? If you're only doing analog stuff and pointing really, what COULD we need the Wii Motion+ for? Of course, this is WAYYYY early in the life of the system, and I admittedly haven't even looked at all of the games coming out, but most everything has been "check out the screen!" not "waggle like a champ!"
Know what I mean?
--Fink, you sounded like you were in a hole the whole time! Is it possible my speakers just stink? Hmm.
And I did not realized until now that "nacthenud" is "duncan"...BACKWARDS. *GASP*
And I always thought it was pronounced "Nack the Nude" for some reason. I was always like "oh, that crazy nudist..but why spider-man?"
