Howdy fellow Wii Music fan; I don't believe I've seen you in our massive thread before, have I? As always, there are a handful of us who will be happy to share videos or collaborate, if you're up for it.

EDIT: Also, your description of the game above is quite accurate in getting across the basic components of the gameplay.

I haven't been in the thread before, no. I haven't played the game for months now because most of my limited gaming time is being gobbled up by Modern Warfare: Reflex, but one of these days I'll get back to Wii Music. This topic was actually one of the reasons I created an account here - I find that where you have people who've actually played the game and got into it, there tends to be a great community around the game.

I find it to be a slightly intimidating game to go back to - if I'm not feeling creative on whatever evening I put it on, I'll noodle about for a while and come away feeling unsatisfied and annoyed with myself. If I'm in the zone, I'll end up sitting there for hours trying to get a particular track just right and end up sitting there at 3am, hooking up my ridiculous means of recording the performance for Youtube (I guess that would be why the Nintendo Channel reports it as being my second most-played game) - neither is particularly healthy! :)

I hope they use Wii Music+ to address some of the shortcomings - in particular, had they introduced a Wii Music channel with competitions, track sharing and new tracks to download, the community around it would have been utterly amazing.

Absolutely, and that's also why I don't get around to playing it as often as I'd like. I need a lot of time and creative energy, or it just ends up killing me and eating up a big chunk of my evening.

That would be a dream come true, but I'm sadly doubting that they'll get around to it, given the reception to the first game. We'll see.

Preach on, Insin.
And Wariowoods: Thanks for the vid post (635)! That's excellent. I tried filming off my tv screen once and, uh, yeah that doesn't work. Glad you enjoyed. I think the Wii Music site is a freaking fantastic idea, and one that should have been implemented by Nintendo from the get-go, much like their Flipnote Hatena page for Flipnote Studios (I know a separate entity runs the site, but they could have collaborated in much the same way for Music).
KidA: Haven't read the article yet, but it's in my queue of things to do. Among those pros that WW referred to who played and plugged the game on Nintendo Channel -- G. Love! And Run (of Run D.M.C.)! The latter was especially cool, as he's totally getting into it, and his kids are pretty funny, too. If this was the public's first impression of the game, it wouldn't have the dreaded reputation it has. The political analogy in #637 is right on--E3 '08 was to Wii Music as wind-surfing was to John Kerry in '06.

You sir, just got on my official "Awesome Nintendo Life Users" list. This past summer vacation had a lot of "up till 3am perfecting my song" nights. But you're right, if you're not in the zone it's hard to get into. I also agree with you on the online community aspect. When I look at things like Skate 2 and LittleBigPlanet--games that have online hubs where players can share/rate their own/others' awesome creations/videos I always think, "wouldn't it be incredible if Wii Music had something like that?"

There's a very interesting Iwata Asks about Wii Music where, among other things, they talk about their experience of playing it and people's opinions about it. (laughs)

http://us.wii.com/iwata_asks/wii_music/vol3_page2.jsp

You get a sense that they're going to do a better job of marketing it and showing people how much creative scope there is in the game when Wii Music Plus comes out, as they've recognised their shortcomings in that department first time around.

Is Wii Music Plus a confirmed thing? Or is this just wishful thinking? (Maybe that's what the big Media Summit in San Fran will be about.... ) <!> That sound was the explosion of 2 million "hardcore" gamers.

Yep! Which reminds me, I need to start looking at my Wii Music Library so I can send you a list of vids to upload. Hopefully tonight.

@insin: I greatly appreciate your thorough explanation of how Wii Music really works. I have always enjoyed creating music, so it sounds like I could spend hours on this game. It should be pretty cheap by now, so I'm definitely considering picking up a copy when my wallet recovers from December.

Wario, I sent you the videos I want youtubed. They won't all make it into the final cut, but I want to have options. A couple are actually yours--I forgot how many incredible videos you all have sent me. it took me a sold half hour to sift through all the good ones and narrow it down to just a few. I already have a few definite ones that I found on Youtube. Thanks in advance!

Good variety of videos there (it was 5, correct?). I just captured them all, and once I've gotten them all uploaded to YouTube, I'll post the links here. I believe I'll have that by tomorrow morning early.

No problem with that; I only wish it had been completed before the article, so that it might be linked as an example of the Wii Music community on the web. But it's coming very soon now, so a mention is certainly fine with me.
