    I never really saw anything wrong with Wii Music in the first place(but one has to admit, their presentation with that random Ravi Drums douche was horrible), actually, I thought it was a pretty cool idea!

    My thoughts exactly.

    I'm not going to bother clicking on the link, but I'm guessing it's in reference to a presentation he recently hosted in Cali. I completely follow his train of thought, and I'm glad Wii Music exists. I won't be buying it, but I think it's a cool piece of software for young kids (and perhaps adults who aren't musicians). I think some folks forget they were once kids, too. And that seems to be Miyamoto's greatest talent: the ability to communicate to people of all ages and walks of life. At this juncture, he's interested in communicating and facilitating a younger audience and their early interest in music. I commend him and Nintendo for it, and it's obviously something he's passionate about. His rounds with the media about this title have, from what I can tell, had little to do with marketing the game and everything to do with trying to make them understand that this "game" isn't for "gamers"; it's for folks who love music but aren't necessarily musical.

    Yeah, I really don't have a problem with Wii Music.

    I'm definitely buying it, it doesn't look like fun, but I'm not another dumbass crying that "casual games" are ruining my life.

    Nope, the link is to an exclusive interview that he gave to Multiplayer. Most of the interview is about WiiMusic, cause well.. that's what he is trying to promote right now.

    One good thing that I think he says there is that he wished to WiiMusic to come out before this whole Guitar Hero, Rock Band thing.. cause people would be able to look at it in a different way, but, by a coincidence, the game came out now. He also says that he always wanted to do something with music and the ocarina songs in Zelda OoT were created because he wanted something with music in the game.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Very nice stuff. You can really tell Miyamoto's a genius when it comes to games. Wii Music appeals to kids, and it works well like that, why people are giving it a score as bad as 5 (I'm looking at you, IGN) I'm not sure.
    Totally agree with what Miyamoto's saying, and he seems to know where it's at. Can't wait to see what his next projects will be!

    Part 3 is out: http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2008/10/29/...o-zelda-portal/

    Miyamoto talks about innovations on the hardcore market, flaws in Zelda TP and Galaxy and points out that he's the producer in the new Punch-Out!

    Gotta love that guy [​IMG]

    The score might seem a bit low (especially considering they gave some extremely bad games higher scores), but you have to admit that the review makes sense. IGN is right: the seasoned gamer probably won't enjoy this. I agree that the score should be higher (even though I don't really like the game), but it's the review that counts, and the review is honest.

    I suppose I can't really judge this game like that, it is the first installment of that series so its not going to be the best but i'm sure better upcoming version will expand on the idea of wii music in general.
