The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Wii are finally amused

Although wii are also out $150, thanks to Rock Band. Although if you have the ability to create a personalized character (ala XBox version) then I haven’t noticed it (either in the rules or menus). Is that an unlock-able? Don’t know.

Sometime soon someone is going to make a video game that teachs actual instruments and makes it fun. (I’ve seen videogames that do just that, but they were poorly executed). Arguably Rock Band does just that for the drums (It sure looks like the same skill set to me, apart from reading music, but I’m not a drummer …). Until then we’ll always have Sousaphone Hero.

  1. What you really wanted to do was buy a 360, then buy Rock Band for that platform. Then you’d also be able to download additional songs, which definitely makes the game even more fun. Plus, there are lots of good games for the 360, and only about 5 good ones for the Wii.

    Of course in your world up is down, left is right, and Boom Blox is not fun– so all bets are off.

  2. Wii does not have customizable characters.
    Wii can get new songs via song packs via a disc you purchase somewhere.
    As far as I know, Wii cannot play over the internet.
