Are you sick of Miis

#1 Posted by Dixavd (1541 posts) -

I am so bored of Miis; it seems like they have done hardly anything to them on the WiiU (here's a screen shot of them on the WiiU).

With it being on the Wii, 3DS and now the WiiU; it's getting pretty repetitive. With the WiiU having a tablet I would have at least hoped they would allow more personalised customisation using it; like being able to draw on the tablet something that goes on my characters shirt. Or just more colours ect.. to actually make it look like it's using a HD machine. With Nintendo continuing to want to bring them into games (like in NSMBU or Nintendoland) I wish they had changed them a bit. It's not a massive deal but when I saw this screenshot it dawned on me that if I wasn't told it was the new creation interface for the WiiU then I would have thought it was the same as the Wiis.

Are you bored of them as well?

Nope. The Mii is just an avatar and those have been around forever. I just make mine when I first boot up whatever system and don't really think about it after that.

I think if you could customize them more they would be better.

I've never had a problem with Miis, they fit Nintendo. Avatar's I still don't get why they introduced them, they are fucking stupid.

How could I be sick of yous, we've never even met?

I was only introduced to them like 3 weeks ago when I bought a 3DS XL. First console I've owned that used them.

So nah, not yet. Give it another week or two, maybe.

@Dixavd: I like Miis, but yes, for the Wii U, I wish they'd be much more expanded. Add more personalization options. The gamepad allows for more direct input, and that should be reflected on Miis. I wish Miis now would simply have so many options that you can really get a character to them that's all your own.

Agreed, not sick of them, but think you should/probably will be able to do more with them during the Wii U's lifetime.

I personally like the simplicity of Miis and don't think they need a revamp. I just don't think enough games use them to their full potential.

When the 3DS came out I was disappointed with how Miis still looked like Miis.

Honestly no, I'm ok with them. I'm really indifferent for the most part.

@Dixavd: what a great idea. cock and balls on shirts really fits into Nintendo's family-orientated policies.

Mii creation might be boring, but I like it when Nintendo makes Miis do dumb stuff like putting on a NES as a hat and emoting randomly like in the 3DS letter app.

I was never really into Miis, I made it day one and never really did anything with it...

There are never enough hairstyles in videogame character creators.
