Alright, a quick disclaimer: this post is not about an Xbox 360 game. it is about a Wii game. Thank you. Now, if you own a Wii (and some of us do here at X3F), chances are you have picked up (or plan on picking up) Super Smash Bros. Brawl. If you have done this, you'll know that it is one of the few games that supports online play. If you know that, you probably know that it does not support any kind of voice chat. So, how do we fix that? With Xbox Live of course! After the break we have come up with a quick guide for getting your Brawl on complete with voice chat.
What you will need:
- Friends (you'll need to enter Brawl's onerous friend codes to play with them)
- Xbox 360, controller, and headset (wireless is ideal here), Halo 3
- Wii, Super Smash Bros. Brawl
We should mention that this workaround should also work using Skype or any other VOIP app (or a plain ol' cell phone for that matter). However, the Xbox Live method comes with the bonus of being able to play rounds of Halo 3 (or your 360 game of choice) in between rounds of Smash Bros. We should also mention that if you don't have a wireless headset, you will have a 360 controller tethered to you at all times. Be sure you pick it up along with your Wii controller if you have to stand up for any reason. We tell you this from experience, as we sent our 360 controller flying when we stood up to answer the phone.
So there you go! Enjoy your Smash and Halo sandwich.
