Ubisoft CEO finds pleasure in Nintendo peripherals

Ubisoft CEO finds pleasure in Nintendo peripherals photo



Ubisoft Montreal’s CEO Yannis Mallet is certainly one of those guys that really likes videogames. In an interview with Gamasutra, Mallet gets wistful when talking about Nintendo’s interface and peripherals, and asks the eternal question of “Where does the pleasure come from?” when specifically referring to the upcoming Wii Motion Plus add-on. His love of ponderous thoughts of oceans, peripherals, and baby doves doesn’t just end with the Wii MotionPlus. Later in the interview he talks about the Balance Board and how consumers simply need to try it out.

I cannot help but think of Shaun White Wii, which is definitely a must-try. It's so intuitive. You don't need your brain to do that interpolation work, because it's so seamless, and then you immerse yourself into that experience. Oh yeah, definitely. It's really good.
I really like videogames, but I’m not exactly sure if I’m willing to use the language that Mallet speaks with as I write about the medium. It’s great to be excited about the Wii MotionPlus, but asking where the pleasure involved in it is? That’s like asking Denis Dyack what part of his irreverent industry talk makes him feel big and strong.

Rocksmith will turn you into a guitar legend like Hendrix or the guy from Papa Roach

Rocksmith 2014's getting some DLC songs by Papa Roach today. One time in eighth grade, a kid in my class started a speech by saying "Cut my life into pieces, this is my bat report. Echolocation, no seeing. Vampire bat bite your arm, now you're bleeding." I wonder what he's up to. Probably not playing Papa Roach songs on Rocksmith, if I'm being really honest.more

Review: Risk

Typically, board games involving just dice aren't my thing. I don't like playing a game in which I feel I have no control in whether I win or lose. Yahtzee is a prime example of this, while Risk is somewhere in between. Much ...more

Grow Home update brings a new side quest, tons of bug fixes

Thank goodness Ubisoft Reflections' little robot adventure turned out well. That could've been such a letdown. Reviewing Grow Home for Destructoid, Ben Davis said he "got more than enough enjoyment out of exploring the world...more
