I really don't understand why some people can't learn to "shut the f up unless you have some actual Hobbit news to share."
Quoted from CaptainNavidad:
At one point, I believe the button on the apron was to be used to fire the windlance. Not sure if that's the case anymore (though I might be wrong). Does anyone know how it will function during the gameplay?
It's now the Ring Button, Captain. At NWPAS, you could use it to change skill shots before plunging the ball, charge it by making certain shots during gameplay, and hit it once charged to get "special powers" like extra multipliers, etc. Jack mentioned that the "fire the windlance" plan went out the window when they actually saw the third film.
