yea it deff still uses the pointer, but it does away with the shake/waggle crap, ant tbh (i havent played it yet tho, so my mind could be super changy) the reseting at the press of a button seems like it will be better than being locked to having to poimt at the EZACT SAME SPOT ALL DAY, just to play.
and yes it looks a lot more natural pointing with a controller instead of a wii wand. i dont have a problem with that part, as i said i think it would be DOPE AS HECK if they added pointer function to Sunshine, just point and squirt baby!
but yes, obviously Nintendo really could have done MUCH MUCH better with this, but at least it isn't quite as lazy as Mario's 25th re-release of plain all stars, without even World
actually (i think i heard this) the worst part is that motion is disabled in handheld mode, so you HAVE to use the touchscreen, which looks like GARBAGE
