[games_access] Wii U (was AbleGamers live media at E3)

Hi,

I would really like to know what will happen when you play
Dance Central 2 with a wheelchair. Did you try it?

Do you know Kung Fu Live? It was not built with accessibility in mind.
But it is really possible to play the game sitting in a wheelchair.
I loooove it.

I am not sure about Dance Central 2 (I am too busy with Zumba).
But it would be nice when the developers try it out (sitting on a chair)
and maybe they will have a really nice cool idea????


When I play Zumba, I do not really have to fit the person.
Ok Zumba is not a game at all. With Zumba everyone can move like he want.
You can do also stupid stuff. That is ok. It is Zumba.

Maybe Dance Central 2 can also be fun, also when someone plays it in
another way?

Best regards,
Sandra

No, I think Nintendo's out of touch!!! A very bizarre design direction for
them to take.



I read that there's a way to sync it to your TV but you still need to use
the stupid screened console meets controller as controller #1. Apparently
additional players will need to use (lucky them though) other controllers
like the wii-mote and perhaps (not sure) a classic controller.

Agreed all round. The Wii U looks like a nightmare for broad accessibility.
Some of those games demoed look impossible to make accessible for a huge
range of people. Am I out of touch? I just looked at it and groaned...

Thanks, Steve. I read one of the articles yesterday on the Wii U and it was
a very moving (and angering!) account about how Nintendo has taken the
direction that they have and all of the ways that it threatens to close yet
another avenue of gaming for the disabled.



Keep up the good work with the coverage!

It’s a great time for game accessibility. This is, to my knowledge, the
first time E3 has had representation for disabled gamers live.
