Line Rider for Wii?

Thursday, April 5, 2007 12:03 PM
Okay, so they've announced line rider (http://www.official-linerider.com/play.html)
which I love (especially when playing it with my cintiq at work) is coming out as a real game for Wii. Now, I haven't tried it yet on my Wii (I will tonight) but seeing as how line rider is already a flash game, can't you just play it through Opera? What am I missing??

On a side note, I just got the Wii last week. This thing is going to be bigger than big, as the reason that we got it is that my non-gaming wife wanted it, and every wife that has played it at our house has said "Oooh, honey, we need to get one of these!" They have totally succeeded in creating a new, accessible, FAMILY game system at a tolerable price point. It's going to continue to grow like crazy.

On another side note, anyone else that has a Wii, PM me your WiiFriends code!

Ah wii, it is a great system IMO, only thing that gripes me is Nintendo's plans for online. With wii you have to both register a 16 digit system code to play eachother, then every game will have an individual code to register as well, or you cant play eachother or communicate. It is nothing at all like XBLive, not nearly as easy to use. Otherwise you're stuck playing random people with no interaction which is like a computer and no fun. A certain other site had a "wii community" building Wii System code lists, which will be rendered useless since every game will have a new code. I don't have many friends with Wiis that are online, and out of those none are really bothered with the stupid codes. I shouldn't really rant here about this, but its a huge deal since Online gaming is a big thing anymore, and Nintendo is so stuck in the past about it. These codes should be a parental control, I shouldn't be forced to play with automatic parental controls, I can handle myself online. Seriously I can go all day about this and so many hate these codes, but I won't, sorry to have troubled everyone with this long of a post LOL.

Overall, I do like Wii,It is just that Nintendo is so stubborn about some things. I have some good games for it such as Zelda and Godfather. Line rider is SO addicting, so I can't wait for it, and the downloadable maps would be fun. Stuff like that thank god doesn't need codes, same with sharing maps on Elebits.

So I checked, and Line Rider won't load in Opera. Maybe it's Shockwave based and not flash, as I thought. Guess I'll have to buy the game.

P18, I agree that the 16 digit code swap and game-specific friends list is awkward, but I personally would probably never use any kind of online 'lobby' for finding friends to frag, and I believe I'm the type of consumer Nintendo is targeting with the Wii... not the online HALO junkies. I'm more interested in revisitng Mario Kart with my old College buddies online.

Price comes down? Excuse me because I really don't get into playing games much, but I thought the wii at $250 was the least expensive of the new gaming systems.

Am I wrong?

I guess the codes arent HORRIBLE, but anything easier with more identity would be nice, my friends aren't bothered with codes. I have to say, Wii is one of the most versatile machines I've ever had. Youtube for vids/shows, finetune for music, game sites like wiiarcade and wiicade on wii, wii-hear for net radio, then VC games, its WELL worth the $250

Line Rider online game sounded cool when I read about it in the first post. I tried it! It was fun for about 30 seconds.

Sorry, but I guess my first comment was rather vague. What I meant was - how do I get him to 'turn around a corner'. In another words, I can create the hill...he goes left to right, but when the screen ends, I want him to turn around and go back down a different hill.

I am willing to guess it's painfully simple...I just can't figure it out.

thanks,

You have the hill go into a big c with a smaller c inside of it, the person will go upside down and turn around. Just make where he doesnt hit his head.

It may be less expensive than other gaming systems, but it's still a large investment.

$50 - $100 per head to go to an amusement park for one day...

$250 + the cost of games for a system me and my entire family will probably enjoy for years....

I don't have to finish this, right?

As much as I love video games (and Nintendo's newest system), this is rather off-topic...
