They should bring in some of the mini-games from the old Pokemon Stadium games. I miss them.

Why is the F-Zero game motion-controlled? WHYYYYYYY

Why does it even exist? It looks terrible, honestly.

You don't understand! A high-speed clockwork F-Zero game could have been A-MAY-ZAH: imagine a car smashing another car against a wall, and then you get cogs and springs flying everywhere! Ooh, I want a steampunk F-Zero game now.

But the moment you add motion control to a racing game (except for maybe a gearstick or gun turret or something?) it turns to crap.

Excite Truck worked perfectly fine with motion controls, though steam punk F-Zero would be a winner.

I am basing my experiences on MKWii, which may be unfair. But the difference between playing it with the 'Mote and any form of analogue stick was... We'll see I suppose, but I'm not hopeful.

I found MK Wii a lot better with the Wiimote than a wavebird or wired gc controller.

Balla I'm insulted you doubt me. What have I got to gain by lying? I like the Wiimote more than a standard pad.
