One of our readers, Tiger, decided to have some fun with the Wiimote and give it some hax. Over at Global Donimation, he describes how to write a script for the Wiimote that allows you to reload by pulling the joystick back or by shaking the nunchuck. If you prefer to play without the nunchuck, then go ahead and reload with the A button.
I got to talk with Tiger for a few minutes about the Wiimote hack that he’s been working on, and here’s what he had to say about the Wiimote in comparison to a light gun:
It’s not the same, because you can’t “aim down the sights”. It’s similar to playing the shooting minigames in Rayman on the Wii, but it feels more authentic than using the mouse or a controller. Plus there’s rumble “recoil.”
Personally, I find all this modding for the Wiimote pretty sweet, especially with FPS and light gun games. Hopefully we’ll be getting some decent FPS games on the Wii soon. Third party publishers, I’m looking at you! Don’t let Red Steel stop you from making a decent game!
Also, check out the rest of Tiger’s videos after the jump.
Also, this is my 100th post on the site. Wow, I am a lazy ass writer.
