Jeremy Powers tells the inspirational tale of how the Wii U Gamepad and Nabbit in New Super Luigi U helped his nearly blind daughter play her very first video game.
yeah, thats great! but I bet no politicians will talk about that......its, toooooo...positive. as a gamer im happy for her! XD
I wouldn't be surprised if this took a long time to get approved because of its positive nature. Which is simply ridiculous. This is even better than when people lose 100 pounds doing Wii Fit or any of the Kinect exercise things. Truly a great story.
SHHH.....games are the devil!!/s
Yeah this really is great. I am always happy to see new people getting into gaming, especially kids. Gaming was pretty much my safe heaven when I grew up as a kid, so I am all about spreading gaming to as many people as possible.
Wii U is an HEALING machine!!!
Makes me think, if I ever lost my eyesight I'd probably resort to listening to "movies" of video games on youtube. I'm glad that she was able to enjoy playing on a game console.
So Nintendo are so desperate they are trying to market there machine to the blind now.
remember Dumb and Dumberer?Wii u is the parrot lmao on a side note pickup your flame shields
wow, I hope you never have a child with a disability.. or a child for that matter.
Wow! It's incredible that you turn such a beautiful story into such BS by bashing Nintendo and the writer who can now play videogames with his daughter who is nearly blind. Very pathetic on your part. I agree with Neonridr and hope you never have kids. Unbelievable that you would say such stupid things.
I'm surprised the father never let her play a handheld. She could've been enjoying gaming long ago.
She as tried a handheld before but she gets frustrated with the controls and she wants to play along with her dad, just her brothers. Someone asked him the same question at the bottom of the article, haha.
It's always pretty awesome and inspiring when we hear stories of how barriers are constantly being broken. Who would have thought that something like this would allow a family to be brought closer together and create a new sense of hope and excitement for a person who has faced such challenges. Amazing story.
Video games are good for children.
Of course the sony and microsoft trolls are going to bash nintendo over a story like this, they are a bunch of big babies who have no lives, no hearts or no souls...it's all they care about, bashing nintendo... how pathetic!!!
This article earns an "Excellent" and "Yes" It's one thing to hear about additions to video games (like Nabbit) and to speculate why that was added and who it was for- But this article went a step forward and illuminated the theories that we all had. It also shows that making Special Modes/Characters like Nabbit and NFS's:Most Wanted (mode where a driver could assume control of the primary driver) are useful to families, to beginners, and to people with disabilities- -And are not a waste of time.
