Jerry-rig Smash Bros. Brawl voice chat because Nintendo won't

Just because the game doesn't support voice chat, doesn't mean you can't.

Just because the game doesn't support voice chat, doesn't mean you can't.

Now that Super Smash Bros. Brawl on launched on Sunday, Ars Technica is kind enough to remind foaming-at-the-mouth fans how they can taunt fellow online players despite Wii's lack of voice chat. In summation:

  • Use a cell phone. Though not ideal, texting and/or voice will get the job done. And also eat your minutes.
  • Conference call. Use a home, business, or online plan to conference call your buddies. Yeah!
  • Use an Xbox 360 open voice channel. Multisystem owners only: call your Xbox Live buddies whilst your Wii is powered on, and have at it. Take that, Nintendo!
  • Use Skype. Get a laptop, fire up Skype, and talk online for free as you pummel each other.

Whatever it takes.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
