E3 Nintendo

    People don't realize that the only thing wrong about Nintendo's showing this year was their press conference. I know that sounds like it should be the most important thing, but it really isn't. They still had new games to show off for the 3DS and WiiU. EXCLUSIVES mind you! No need to rely on third parties to show off their games (Microsoft I'm looking at you). Nintendo brought the games it needed to, and even though they didn't present them very well, they were still there.

    "They still had new games to show off for the 3DS and WiiU. " Question, which exactly are the new games they showed for the 3DS that we weren't aware of before the E3? (And this include pre-E3 games such as Mirror of Fate and New super Mario Bros 2. Which are some of the most recently announced games, if my memory serves.)

    Well it's not like the games were already released... besides Kingdom Hearts(out in Japan) they showed us new footage of games coming out with in the next few months for 3DS and Wii U. I'll be picking up everything they showed for 3DS(besides Kingdom Hearts I gave up on that series with BBS), who couldn't be excited to Castlevania, Luigi's Mansion, Epic Mickey and MARIO?! Bummer they didn't show Animal Crossing... I hope it means they are overhauling the game with new features and that it some how ties into the Wii U version...

    Yeah, I don't argue that the upcoming games are worth excited about. I'm just bummed out that they didn't really announce anything new. Anyway, I just got a shiny new red 3DS today alongside Kid Icarus Uprising. So despite all my grudges with nintendo, I won't let that get in the way of me enjoying their games int his one XD

    From what I've seen Nintendo's biggest mistake was not showing Project P-100 in their press conference. That was one of the most exciting announcements at E3 for me. Nintendo definitely did not have the best press conference this year, but they didn't totally fail either. No real ground-shattering announcements, but I enjoyed seeing more on Paper Mario and the other 3DS games as well as most of the Wii U games to be honest. And Pikmin 3's graphics kinda blew me away. Nintendo may not do as much core stuff as you want them to but when they actually do it, they do it damn well.

    If they had such a good showing, this article wouldnt be needed to prove it
  • RonnyLive19881 - June 16, 2012 9:19 a.m.

    No... it is trying to convince all of the no blood=no buy gamers to broaden their gaming preferences. There are millions of people that think Nintendo won E3 by a land slide for reasons much better than either Ubisoft or Sony fans put down as evidence of their win... Nintendo is bringing gaming to new heights... Sony and Ubi are just releasing more of the same. Farcry's sex scene was just an evolution of MW2's no Russian, Last of US is Uncharted with emotion I guess... I don't know why Naughty dog wants us to feel like killers by making the on screen characters beg for their lives but what ever. Watch Dogs is just Next Gen GTA with a gimmick and the current gen versions will prove that. Quantic Dreams new game is the only Non-Nintendo game that really caught my eye and got me excited. That was a great example of a fantastic developer taking advantage of the PS3, pushing it beyond what at least I thought possible all while hooking me with a story I can't wait to get to the bottom of!

    I haven't met anyone, present company excluded, that would say Nintendo WON E3. Let alone 'millions'. Some would say they did a decent job. But Nintendo is doing nothing to take it to new heights, tacking a tablet onto a regular controller just brings up the same issues that the Wii had: Nobody will use it and when they do it will be gimmick-y, rather than an actual organic part of the game.

    I would recommend you not wasting your breath with RonnyLive19881. He's a well known nintendo fanboy and ass kisser that only posts good things about nintendo and bashes anything else, Logic and common sense be damned. hell, I'd even go as far as saying it's even more futile to try and talk to him that it is with Zombi Brain. At least that guy has the "decency" to reply, even if it's only with inane things.

    I give credit where it's due. I respect Nintendo. I'm not going to go to every article I've ever posted something on and check if some one replied... that's kind of crazy isn't it? Lol I only replied to this because it was the last thing I did before closing my browser last... I do read comments on other articles that I don't post on and you seem to comment on a lot of them, I peg you as a Sony fanboy and every Nintendo article I've seen you comment on has been negative. Guess I have haters on this site for loving Nintendo...
  • BladedFalcon - June 16, 2012 10:05 p.m.

    You're confusing hate with simple annoyance. Trust me, you're not bad enough to be worth hating. Also, I wasn't aware that giving credit where it's due meant praising and defending every single move and action that nintendo makes, and getting angry at people or the site when they don't praise the company as much as you do. I dislike Nintendo as a first party company because I believe they make a lot of silly mistakes on that front, but i respect them as game developers and I like most of their games. If i really was comparable fanboy as you are, i wouldn't be considering getting a 3DS instead of a PSVita, for example. Anyway, while still on the subject of giving credit where is due, I have to give you some for giving a much more reasonable post as a reply here, than i've normally seen you do. So I'll admit you're probably not as one track minded as I have pegged you to be in the past.

    Hey, I haven't blindly praised them... I genuinely am a fan of the company and they have done things that drove me nuts. I felt kind of betrayed when the Gamecube launched with out a Mario title(although I didn't care much after I tried out Luigi's Mansion), was furious when Nintendo just let Microsoft buy Rare(the company is pretty much dead now), thought Nintendo had lost their minds after revealing Wind Waker(but slowly became a fan of the idea after seeing the later trailers, the shock of seeing Toon Link after that awesome tech demo was pretty insane), was skeptical about the DS... I was actually worried Nintendo was making a bad move since the Gamecube wasn't selling to well, the vitality censor... speaks for itself and MOST OF ALL, NINTENDO CHOOSING WII MUSIC AS THEIR CENTERPIECE AT E3 2008... Yes Animal Crossing is great an all but it couldn't save that conference... that was the year I got my HD consoles Lol, had a LOT of titles to catch up on and City Folk did end up being pretty awesome!(Wii speak not being used drove me nuts too, only used it in city folk...)

    I thought Nintendo was best of show by far, what is there to be worried about? You guys at GR already made an article for the exact reason I'm not worried Bravo! I swear for once this website NAILED exactly what Nintendo is going for (next generation of group play! 5 FREAKIN' PLAYERS! ZOMGYESFTW!!!!!!)and I am shocked other sites seem to over look it after Nintendo had drilled into our brains over the years. They want to bring people together to play their game, not separate them with an online connection!

    I think the new paper mario game is the only thing about Nintendo's showing that I care about. And no it's not that I don't like the concepts of everything else, it's just that it stole my attention.
  • Turtman - June 15, 2012 6:07 a.m.

    You should probably let Nintendo fight their own battles
  • radiodeaf - June 15, 2012 4:47 a.m.

    reaching in this much reaching
  • Hobogonigal - June 15, 2012 12:52 a.m.

    Good article that makes me feel a little better about how the conference turned out, however with reason 2 you say that New Super Mario Bros U is not the true successor to Galaxy. Maybe that's because of a little, unheard game called Mario Galaxy 2, perhaps?
  • GR_HenryGilbert - June 15, 2012 6:58 a.m.

    What I mean is that NSMBU isn't a 3D Mario. The next 3D Mario will no doubt be a new game in a new series instead of a new Mario Galaxy.
  • Hobogonigal - June 15, 2012 9:30 a.m.

    Yeah, I understand your point... the way I read it made me giggle a little. This game definitely isn't as jaw-dropping as is the standard with 3D Marios. Still, good enough for me until 3d Mario finally arrives in beautiful HD with Wii U controls and steals the show again!
  • GR_HenryGilbert - June 15, 2012 10:36 a.m.

    Crossing my fingers that's what we'll see at E3 next year
