Did someone say Wii rubber?


Ok, ok,, for most of us, ehh,, hmmm,, we can equate the use of the above mentioned substance to equal less sensativity.  Now, I don't know if you can officially say that the slip covers, gel covers, whatever covers that are made for the Nintendo Wii controllers are made out of rubber or not, the fact is, they are rather,, rubber-ish.  With that said, is there an alternative to putting a germ catching jelly jacket over your Wii controller?  I think so. 


Nintendo Wii Controller Sweat = Slippage


So, why the rubber controllers?  Maybe because the Wii remote was slipping out of players hands, threating LCD and Plasma screens everywhere.  What causes slippage, hmmm, maybe clammy clam shuckers, muggy mitts, greasy grubbers,  basically, sweaty hands.  So if you own a Wii and sweaty hands are causing you problems with controlling your controller, cut the problem off at the pass and get some help for those damp clampers.  For some, putting a bulky cover on the Wii remote is just not right.  It gets in the way, it's distracting, it's not natural.  If that's you, get some GhostGrip, shake it, put a dime size dab in your palm, rub your hands together, clap a few times, and GhostGrip will gently coat your grippers with a moisture preventing barrier, giving you a natural feel and grip on your controller.  


No need to wrap it, just get some GhostGrip, clap it and slap it..



In true Nintendo fashion


If you look at the history of Nintendo, you will know that themselves and third parties have long been involved in coming out with an entire host of controllers for a game console.  So much that it can be confusing to some.   I mean, look at ROB the robotic operating buddy (click ROB for a pic of the bad boy of NES) that came with the original NES.  When's that dude gonna show up as a Wii controller?  So, let's list what you need for the Wii.


Differenty Wii Remote Controller Types 

The Wii Remote, the Wii classic controller, the Wii Nunchuk, Wii Steering wheel, Wii fantasy set, Wii sports set, Wii Zapper or Light Gun, and the Wii Guitar, I may have missed one or two.

So let's clear the water hear, what are the basics.  For example do you need the Wii sports set to play sports games on Wii?  No.  Do you need the Wii fantasy game attachments, like a sheild and sword to play games like Zelda on Wii,,, uh,, no.  Basically, to play almost all Wii games what you need is the Wii Remote, the Classic Controller, and the Nunchuk is also nice to have.

So what's all this other stuff.  Well, basically attachments or controllers with specific shapes like that of a tennis raquet or golf club and just dressed up Wii Remotes.  They do the same thing the Wii Remote does, they're just shaped differently to help people really get into the game.  I mean, I've played golf on the Wii with the stock Wii Remote, but only when I put the Wii Golf Club in my hand could I feel the cool breeze of the course, the birds chirping in my ear, and my caddy text messaging his girlfriend in my backswing.  Same goes with the other attachments, like a sword attachment for example,, who wants to sleigh a dragon without a sword attachment?  


Other Wiimote Types 

Other remotes are more specific to the game and thier fuction a little more obvious.  Hmm, I wonder what games I'd want the steering wheel for?  Hmm, I wonder if I can play tennis with the Wii Guitar?  Some things are obvious some aren't, one things for certain though, all you need is your Wii Remote, The Classic Controller (think of your Playstation controller), and a Nunchuk and you're pretty much good to go on most every Wii offering.  

Until next time, keep your hands dry using the Wii Remote Controller Grip and try not to smack your friend in the head.
