    So I just started thinking about LoZ SW and it using WM+.

    Do you guys think the game will be ruined by it?
    Would you just prefer the regular wiimote movements?


    In my honest opinion, I think the biggest downfall of the game will be the use of motion plus, I feel it shouldn't be used with a Game such as LoZelda.

    I have a feeling the game will get penalized for its controls, which is usually core on a Zelda game.

    Do you like the direction Nintendo is going with WM+ and first party Nintendo games, or do you think they should just stop while they are behind?

    So yeah, while its too early to talk about the game in detail, I just want to hear everyones thoughts on Wii Motion Plus and if you think its a good/bad idea.

    The REAL fail of this game is it's directed by this guy:

    Every Wii game I have played that was designed well with Wii controls has been natural and intuitive.

    Wii Motion Plus only enhances that. Practically everything in Wii Sports Resort can be done naturally and effortlessly, if you picture yourself doing the actual thing.
    Red Steel 2 was also quite remarkable and intuitive.

    Wii Motion Plus will only make Zelda better and feel more immersive.

    Thanks Nintendo PR [​IMG]

    Really? How much of Wii Sports Resort did you play?
    For me the game consisted of alot of pausing to recalibrate the damn controller because it gets "confused". The whole thing seemed more fussy than intuitive.
    If Zelda has that recalibration business I will be passing. Anyone remember the demo shown? They blamed it on stage conditions, but I think some of it was just motion plus being garbage.

    most of the time when it messed up was when i went crazy with the sword fighting and paddle XD moved the controller everywhere, including behind me, and turned it, too. but that's why they included the option to press up on the D pad to recenter
    if they allow the same thing for LoZ, then im alright

    I never had any problems like that.

    You must be doing it wrong.

    People complaining about the WM+ annoy me. I'm pretty sure you can take 5 seconds to pause the game now and then to recalibrate. I mean even the Move has calibrating (I thought). If you don't want to calibrate with motion controls then go buy a Kinect, and then immediately regret that purchase because the Kinect is terrible.

    It worked fine in Red Steel 2. It worked fine in Wii Sports Resort. It worked pretty well in Zangeki no Reginleiv. It should work fine in Skyward Sword.

    I'm just worried if the game itself will be any good. The last two DS outings were pretty mediocre (in my opinion) and while Nintendo's latest line-up is good, none of it (DKCR, Kirby's Epic Yarn, etc) have blown me away.

    I don't think it will, I've never had any problems with my M+.
    I've noticed a lot of the people who do have problems have them because they do some wild and crazy movements instead of just doing it in a more natural way...
    I guess the only other way it could "fail" is by people complaning about how they hate moving and all that, but that's because a lot of gamers are big fat lazybums [​IMG].

    This, except Kinect is remarkably accurate when used properly.

    And by properly, I mean, without a dog in front of you, with light, and using common sense. Yeah, about 95% of the time I have no issues with it, and that 5% is when I realize that Kinect does need light to work, so I just turn the light on and it works. Yay.

    On topic, I think WM+ is a fabulous thing and I can only seeing it help Skyward Sword. And to those who think WM+ screwed up at the presentation, well, it did. But that's because of the lighting and a ton of technical issues, etc. The reporters who used it behind the scenes said it worked fine.

    Also, at least Nintendo had the balls to do a live presentation ~ Kinect and, if I remember correctly, the Move both used very, very fake presentations. Kinect's was laughably fake.

    Yeah I don't know what you guys are doing wrong but I've only ever had to recalibrate the WM+ about 3 times since I've had a couple since launch. Since the they've gone through many games of Wii Sports Resort and a full play through of Red Steel 2

    I've always dreamed of a game like Zelda being realistic in controls like this. I don't think this will be like the DS games (I really hope not) because every console Zelda has been good for the most part. This game is taking a lot of development time, they're putting effort into this. Zelda prints money, prints even more money if it's mindblowingly awesome.

    The only concern I have for controls in this game is the archery. I preferred the accuracy of IR to the motion controlled archery of wii sports. When you get your arm up your characters goes all crazy until you calibrate to see down the "scope." i never liked that. IR is much more reliable to me. Everything else should be great though.

    Too fucking cartoon-y for my taste, but I did like Wind Waker.

    Eh, I still think it looks like garbage. I'm SICK and FUCKING TIRED of Nintendo giving us half-assed Zeldas.

    I'd much rather have a MotionPlus for use in any game rather than utilizing the clunky, not-very-accurate, default Wii remote controls. I trust the developers will make it so the game will work well.
