    Mario Kart Wii: Text Chat?!?

    You read the headline correctly. Rather than taking the plunge and allowing online players in Mario Kart Wii to use voice chat like the rest of the civilized world, Nintendo has apparently decided that it is far more feasible to integrate text chat into the experience. Using a USB keyboard, your impossible task is to taunt and interact with your opponents while in the middle of a driving game.I think Nintendo needs a calendar. Somehow theyíre stuck in 1993 or something. How on Godís green earth is anyone playing a RACING game supposed to reach down and type a text message without pretty much throwing the game away. Why are they so afraid of voice comms in-game? Yuck Nintendo.

    wiiwimp.jpgI canít help but wonder if there isnít a more insidious reason that weíve yet to see meaningful voice chat from the Wii. What if the Wii CANíT do it. What if itís such an underpowered system that they canít get it to work reliably? Remember when Sony left rumble out of their controllers, calling it ďlast-gen.Ē Later we found out that the real reason was that they were getting their pants sued off for patent infringement.

    Iím not buying what Nintendo is selling here (both figuratively and literally). I think they grossly underestimated the demand for voice comms when designing their mac-influenced PS2. But what the hell do I know? Why do you think Nintendo keeps screwing the proverbial pooch with their online experience?
    nice little article. linkage

    How would you manage to do text chat anyway? It would take about 10 minutes to send one message.

    i suppose if it actually supports in-game taunting it would be pre-programmed keyboard macros... maybe even custom macros...

    No, they have been appreciated for their good games in the past, and games such as Mario Galaxy now. Do you notice that the best games Nintendo have produced don't have any online play? It's because they're new to online, and it quite frankly sucks. At least I'm hoping for Brawl to turn this around, pay to play might also, hopefully make headsets and voice chat available.
    I love you, Adam.
