This has been bugging me for a while and I h ave been wanting to consult the Wii forums for this. "We need a microphone!"
I have lost just about all my interest in online play with Battalion Wars 2 because i can't talk online. I'm trying to play Co-Op while my friends about to be slaughtered and I cant say anything. After every game I have to run downstairs to msn just to tell him, "That was a good game. Too bad we lost".
The main point of being online is to have more interaction then what the single player has to offer. And right now, I have no interaction then the sad "Suggestion Button" in game that no one even notices when used.
There's been talk of a USB mic. But what's that!? That's eliminating the whole purpose of being wireless.
I have also heard of a Wii control with a mic built in. So what? That means I'm goign to have to run out and buy another remote probly more then 30 bucks?? It cant be installed because there's no port. So you're going to have to physicly buy a new control. Not to mention the weight and crowdedness being added to the remote.
Now, I see wireless blue tooth being used in here, the wii, in cars but more mainly, phones. I've seen those ones that go around your ear for dirt cheap. it works. It's small. Convent. And wireless. It seems perfect. I don't see the conflict in it.
These are my views and I'm sure there's someone that shares them as well. I'm not saying this just for personal sake, but Nintendo, if you had something like this, you're not just going to have the title "Light gaming". it's a big deal and it will attract heavier gamers.
