: In an interview with Fast Company
, Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime said that people will be all, "Wow, I get it," when they see the Wii Vitality Sensor in action. He used the example of the Wii Balance Board not looking like much fun, but people love it when they experience the full software-hardware combo. The example is a stretch. People have been using balance boards
for fun physical activity for decades; they can be fun without clever software. A heart-rate monitor? Not so much. Nintendo’s software will have to be amazingly clever if it hopes to make a clinical device entertaining. I’m not sold yet, but if anyone company can pull it off, it’s Nintendo.
: I’ve managed to finish Ghostbusters: The Video Game
— which, if you haven’t played it yet, do so immediately; it’s essentially an awesome, interactive sequel to the first movie — which means I’m moving onto something new. It’s a question of "what next?" I was legitimately pumped for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
, but sadly, the tutorial alone dashed my hopes this was the Transformers
video game I’d been waiting for. Maybe next time? In any case, it’s looking likely I’ll be flicking on the ol’ Wii again and checking out Overlord: Dark Legend
. Haven’t heard of it? I’m not surprised. It’s essentially a behind-the-shoulder real-time-strategy game with a welcomed dash of British humor. Seriously: it’s worth checking out.
