My first appearance on NL looks at Nintendo's motion revolution
Published on 10/03/2012

Today is an important day for me as a journalist as it marks my first appearance as a feature writer on Nintendo Life! I've been a big fan of the site for a long time, and it was great to see my name in print on the homepage as this weekend's featured article! Not bad for my first time as a writer for them!

The article itself took a week or so of planning and looks at how Nintendo have finally translated their motion control dream into reality over the course of the past 5 years. We all know that Wii Sports didn't quite match up to what the ads would have us believe, but playing Skyward Sword shows exactly how far we have come in such a short space of time. The article covers the advance of motion control and looks ahead into the future and more specifically, at Wii U.

I'm really pleased with how the article turned out and I'm hopeful this is the start of a great relationship with the guys at Nintendo Life who have been incredibly supportive throughout. A big thank you to them for giving me this chance. In theory the next step from here is paid work so we'll see, hopefully in a few months I can link to a major site on here!

In the meantime I'll still be posting for Nintendo-Okie, but I will keep you updated on that as we go.

Nintendo's Motion Revolution

The initial unveiling of the Wii was a landmark moment in the gaming world. Nintendo opened up the possibilities of control into the motion realm, allowing gamers to experience gameplay like never before. But the dream didn't quite relate to reality, and it has been a tough few years for Nintendo despite blossoming sales. In this article I look back at the Wii's lifespan and look how over the past 5 years, the dream has finally become reality.
