Talking How do you like the Motion Control?

Me, i like it a lot! I'm surprised how well it works.

How do you like it? Do you use it?

I'm still trying to get the gold steering wheel.

It's okay, but I prefer traditional controls. So no, I don't use it, but it's cool that it's an option.

IMO instead of wasting dev time on motion control support, they could've added better characters.

I like the motion controls in this better than the Wii motion controls. And what's this about a Gold Steering Wheel, how do you get that?

I think it's like getting a gold wheel in MKWii.

Okay so in that case it is a waste of time since it won't stay forever.

Characters wouldn't really interfere with something motion controls, especially when they are just characters from previous games like Waluigi.

It's okay I use it seldom only when I feel like playing that way, otherwise I play using good old buttons and analog control.

I read an unlockables on some website and it said you'll get it by playing with the Gyro 80% of the online matches. But it didn't said anything if it's stays or not. Hopefully it does.

Well, it seems that it doesn't stay permanent. That sucks b@lls.

It probably won't stay. Because eventually you will play more races without it and that will change the 80%. That's how it was on Wii.

They work, but I really can't see how anybody would use it competitively. It's just so much more complicated.

Then I won't be doing this. It's really only for those people who primarily use motion controls. I wish I was really good at it. It's fun but I can't seriously play with those controls.

I finally got over the characters. It's not good to complain about minor things, Nintendo won't fix it.

Personally, I would use motion controls, if it weren't for the fpv. Anyway, I'm gonna still aim for the gold Wii Wheel.

You can turn it off for just the fpv.

I do not enjoy motion controls. In most games its just a tacked on function that takes place of a button, or really doesnt "enhance" gameplay at all. Im glad to see it getting less and less supported, and I hope it dies.
