So, even Nintendo thinks Wii is a Gamecube in a new suit!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - So, even Nintendo thinks Wii is a Gamecube in a new suit!

I can't believe you are complaining that the Wii is backward compatible to GC controllers. What a horrible concept!

Either you are just trying to flame the Wii, or you seriously knew nothing about a game before you whined about it. What person interested in the game, seriously doesn't know that Mario Kart Wii comes with a Steering Wheel peripheral that holds the Wiimote?

So this leaves me with the question: If Wii has (zero to little) more power than the Gamecube, and the controller is the innovative part (which i digg, don't forget that) why support the Gamecube-controller. Then they just could've stick with the Gamecube... But this time around, we have a good looking Gamecube with online and that's actually selling well! But c'mon Nintendo; If the graphics are the same as last gen and i have to keep playing it with a Gamecube controller i might as well just stick with me old Cube...


1) The Wii is about twice as powerful as the Gamecube.

2) The Gamecube controller is supported to satisfy the waggle haters.

3) The Gamecube is dead, that's why Nintendo isn't anymore making games for it.

4) The graphics aren't the same as last gen.

5) You don't have to play it with a Gamecube controller, the Wiimote is supported as well.

6) This Mario Kart won't be released for the Gamecube.

7) This thread fails, because you haven't done your research before you started a pointless rant.

8) Cake tastes good.

9) Chocolate is even better.

10) I am hungry.


This is why Rol Rules!

This, my folks, is a picture from the online component of Mario Kart Wii.

Green A-button and red B-button (see arrows) suggests that Mario Kart Wii uses the Gamecube-controller. For the Wii version has white A and B buttons.

I'm not hating on Nintendo right now but they are the ones who should actually make sure their controller works in their games and not make it a Gamecube 1.5 game with online. Give the good example Nintendo!


 

yeh.. i think you are right.. they are completely ignoring the wiimotes functionality in this game



243 MHz ATI "Hollywood" : Wii
162 MHz ATI "Flipper" : Cube

The wii has 67% better graphics. Case closed.



 

 

 

Guitar Hero 3/ Smash Hits

another person pointing out something with no research done, probally just for popularity. listen to rolstoppable and do some research next time. And in brawl you are able to use the gamecube controller but your not mad at that.

I know. It's like they didn't even try. Have you opened the flap on the side?

F*cker has gamecube ports! WTF SON!!!

Everyone knows that the Wii is much more powerful than the GC. Not as extreme a difference as there is between a PS2 and a PS3, but still a great difference. I will not point out all the differences because they have been pointed out over and over and the evidence can be had in about 30 seconds of googling. Why people choose to beat down the Wii and not just accept it as part of the video game revolution that we are privledged to be part of right now, is beyond me.

Well, that's actually 50% faster, but as we know, MHz is not the only thing that determines performance.

This argument is like saying PS3 or 360 are nothing different from their predecessors simply because the controllers are pretty much the same.

The Wii has had Classic controllers available for VC and various Wii games since day 1...the GC controller has become another option because people obviously like the controller.

Look at SMG, MP3, Brawl, etc, and tell me with a straight face that the Gamecube could do that...it can't. Also Wii DVDs are much bigger than GC discs...online capabilities, some flash memory, plenty more...people need to go back to Gamecube and see how much better the Wii is.

Here's a Melee/Brawl comparison...in case you forgot how much weaker the Gamecube typically was:

That video proves nothing.  Kirby looks the same in both!

On a more serious note I just had a chocolate cake with strawberries in the middle.  It was amazing.



N64 controller was TERRIBLE! GC controller was my second favorite(I love the SNES controller).
