Apparently, the time is right for the Wii to finally get that glowing fighting sticks game set in a galaxy far, far away. Well, that’s according to Jason VandenBerghe, director of Red Steel 2. Now, while that might get the midi-chlorians of millions of Wii owners all hot and bothered, we’ve got five reasons a lightsaber game would suck more than a dinner date with Jar Jar Binks.
No instead, you’d be grasping a crummy Wiimote between your mitts, which’ll most likely have some god-awful glowy peripheral attached onto it. And, frankly, that’s a rubbish substitute.
Only terrorists don’t like the sound of a good lightsaber swish. Everyone knows that. But, on the flipside, what everyone hates is the stupid, tinny sounds that developers programme to come out of the Wiimote’s speaker.
Alright, so your laser swords would clash on-screen, but you’d still just essentially be flapping your arms around like a tool at nothing. Hell, you might as well just cut out the middle man, picture some imaginary Sith, pick up a stick and start thrashing it about wildly, then check yourself into the nearest mental health ward.
Although, granted, that’d probably land you in the slammer.
