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.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
