Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

GR Spotlight: Quick Shot Plus Dual-Trigger Light Gun

Posted on Tuesday, December 14 @ 17:00:55 Eastern by KevinS


Wrap-around plastic controller skins are plentiful for the Wii (and by "plentiful" I mean "filling every gaming discount bin"), but with my fresh copy of GoldenEye 007 for the Wii, I was handed - appropriately enough - a Golden Gun. Too bad it's not really up to the same quality as the real one - that could "kill" the competition! Ha! Get it? Because the Golden Gun was a one-hit... ahhhhhh, screw it.

dreamGEAR's golden-plastic "gun" holds the Wii-mote in the barrel and the Nunchuk hangs out the back. It's a little awkward to hold the analog stick and the gun in the other hand, more so when the gun and the stick both have two triggers to choose from. On the gun, the "main" trigger pulls the B button, and the "secondary" trigger (which is right under the main) pulls a mechanism for the A button.

I guess the way it handles would be all right for something like Link's Crossbow Training, but if you're playing a game like GoldenEye or Call of Duty - one where the D-pad is also used - the thing's totally useless. It grows more and more cumbersome the more I tried to use it. Anything other than a rail shooter and it's not worth buying.

Well, if you're around anyone immature who just wants to play with a plastic gun, it does the trick. If you're going to play with it for the sake of pointing at your loved ones shouting "POW! You're dead!", then you'll be fine. But I'm pretty sure you can find one for cheaper than this. And will have more features than having the barrel glow blue and feel like a big plastic obstruction to playing your favorite shooter.
