nintendo hasnt learned anything from gimmicky crap. Even Microsof has dropped the kinect. Just look at your super nintendo and make a console 50x more powerful. It’s 2017 and Switch feels like a console that should be launched when have released the first Wii. Aw nintendo… So obsolete… So outdated …
I don’t want to be a grump but I can’t see this being anything but a frustrating disaster to control. It looks neat in the trailers but I have visions of just screaming “that’s not what I did!!!” For 45 minutes before throwing the whole console out the nearest window.
lol, but seriously I’m not going to write this off yet. Early reports I’m hearing about this game don’t seem to have people complaining about the controls, and they also seem to think there’s a technical depth to it and that flailing (the motion equivalent of button mashing) isn’t an effective strategy. You can block, there’s a throw which you use by extending both limbs which you can get jabbed out of, different gloves give you different effects like multiple spaced-out fists with one punch and a boomerang that hits on the way in and on the way back. Maybe you’ll be able to do some zoning or apply some sort of pressure game with the right gloves?
It also seems worth noting that Nintendo came out with Splatoon not long ago, which has been a well-received reinvention of the shooter genre. I’m not trying to get anyone’s hopes up, but this might not suck.
Based on how much I enjoy the Naruto:Shippuden games (NO FXCKS GIVEN), this looks like it’ll be hella fun, and with the added bonus of having nothing to do w/ Naruto (I’m not a fan of Naruto, just the games, for the gameplay).
That it’s on a Nintendo console… well, that’s a little different. If it’s motion-control only, count me out. Nothing is less enjoyable to me than having to learn and act out an unintuitive game of charades to play a game. Hopefully you can put the controller back together and play it like a calm and collected human being.
