Nintendo Wii

Got to say that I’m hugely excited by what was on display from Nintendo at E3 today. Their press conference constantly emphasized the importance of “feel” over looks for a game. Their new control system is gutsy, energetic, will hopefully feel intuitive and most importantly looks like fun.

Small details like putting a speaker in the controller are brilliant. I love the idea that when you fire an arrow, for example, in the new Zelda game you’ll hear the bow being drawn from a speaker in your hand, which makes sense, and then hear the sound of the arrow move from the hand to the screen. Can’t wait for its release. Hope I’m not disappointed.
