An Exclusive Look At Need for Speed Carbon on the Wii

News Week has posted an Exclusive Look At Need for Speed Carbon on the Wii.
"Those alternatives use both the Wii remote and the nunchuk attachment. In the first one, you rotate the nunchuk left and right to steer, and tilt the Wii remote forwards or backwards from a 45-degree position to accelerate or brake, respectively. For both the second and third alternatives, you hold the Wii remote at a 90 degree angle and tilt it forward to accelerate, while using the Z-button on the nunchuk to brake. The difference is that in the second alternative, you rotate the nunchuk to steer; in the third, you steer with the nunchuk's analog stick."

You could say I'm hopelessly addicted to sliders in games.

QOTD - no, actually I hate them. I miss the days of a game playing great out of the box instead of having to tweak sliders for weeks until it's "pefect".

QOTD: Yes. I don't bother too much with them, but its nice to have the option.

I pretty much echo Scott's sentiments regarding sliders. I think that, unfortunately, today they are a necessary evil. I'd love for these games to play a realistic brand of (insert sport here) out of the box, but for some reason, that hardly ever happens.

QOTD: I've tried a few sliders here and there but I just stick with what comes out of the box , To lazy to really pay attention for sliders.

I like them. Only one game that had them and didn't need to adjust them yet. They are a real good for helping the game mold better to what you want. Options are good.

QOTD: I used to be a huge slider guy, but now I've just been playing the game to play the game. I am glad they are there though. It'll be tough to pull them from games once you added them in already anyway.
