Use your WiiMote as a gamepad for your Android tablet or phone. Touch screens are great for some games, but for others you just need tactile response. So, if you prefer to do your gaming on an Android device I highly recommend the free app WiiMote Controller. It’s easy to set up, and mimics an Android keyboard – so it works with most games.
I must admit that the Nintendo Wii U, though I love it, hasn’t done as well as I’d hoped. The problem is simple. Games – there are none! All of the major releases I (and many others) were excited for, like Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and Rayman Legends, have been delayed and won’t be showing up until at least August. A console with no games to play isn’t great, but that doesn’t mean your Wii U has to collect dust.
Do you want a gamepad for your Mac, but don’t want to buy yet another controller? Use your WiiMote as a gamepad with Wjoy. This app doesn’t enable motion controls on your Mac, but it does let you use your WiiMote as a simple gamepad – perfect for games and even emulators if that’s what you like to do. Not everyone knows it, but the WiiMote connects to the Wii using Bluetooth – and there’s nothing stopping you from using the WiiMote with any computer that uses Bluetooth.
Nintendo’s new console is now available across the globe and gamers are weighing in. Most impressions are based of game selection, graphics and the new controller. Gamers, like everyone else, prefer to pay less and get more. It can be hard to justify the new console when approaching it from the perspective of graphics and games. Most Wii U games are a port, which means they can be played on hardware that’s less expensive.
