marblesI think I overheard Metroid Other M is coming August and Golden Sun is in November. 3DS? No idea. Everything else; that all next year so no need to go on all about that. You fun folks did. Let’s listen in to all the happy things you said. See Hilden? Positivity! Elders will smile upon the game community you’ve cultivated!

Naw man, seriously I think nobody knocked this conference. Good news. Oh and thanks for saying what you’re talking about. Because I’m still fumbling in the dark over here. Fumbling.

11:26 mormonrage: DK is a done deal. What would be rad is if they had Steve Wiebe introduce it
11:26 TeamFremont: If Wiebe is here, press conference of show.
11:26 antonhritz: DGR will go bananas…
11:27 mormonrage: hell yeah. Then Billy Mitchell crashes the stage and it gets all lucha libre
11:27 antonhritz: and by that i mean they will buy banana flavored tabacco for the huka

12:03 TeamFremont: philosophy ass kicking in 3 2 1
12:03 philhaymes-1: nice!
12:03 philhaymes-1: nintendo already won
12:04 rockhstrongo: you can feel the nerdgasms

12:06 philhaymes-1: so Zelda out the gate, what else they have then… interesting

12:09 mormonrage: miyamoto making a STRONG argument against motion controls
12:09 mormonrage: that’s a bold move

12:12 QuVat: yeah, twilight princess and windwaker had a baby
12:12 TeamFremont: looks like the sheild mechanic is a key part this time
12:12 TeamFremont: and directional swinging
12:12 philhaymes-1: I’m down with that
12:12 TeamFremont: if it works
12:12 QuVat: not sure what is going to stop people from just waving the Wiimote like crazy

12:14 TeamFremont: bottom line, this will be fun
12:14 QuVat: I hope so

12:14 elewis17: My g/f will eat this up. She loved TP

12:15 TeamFremont: how long before wifi is banned at conf.
12:15 TeamFremont: first apple, now nint.
12:15 philhaymes-1: soon methinks

12:17 TeamFremont: whip is bad ass
12:17 TeamFremont: love it
12:17 mormonrage: do they plan to beat the game in front of us here?
12:17 philhaymes-1: nice!
12:17 philhaymes-1: whip is awesome
12:17 QuVat: looks like theres a dash meter, whip is pretty slick
12:17 TeamFremont: very cool
12:17 TeamFremont: very cool
12:18 philhaymes-1: now I just need to use the whip on Zelda and my fantasies… oh typing out loud again

12:18 TeamFremont: item system is a great fix
12:18 philhaymes-1: yeah loved the item system, much easier
12:18 QuVat: yeah the quick item select is cool
12:19 QuVat: release date?
12:19 rockhstrongo: next year?
12:19 rockhstrongo: boo
12:19 TeamFremont: release date is next year?
12:19 QuVat: ouch
12:19 TeamFremont: wow
12:19 TeamFremont: too bad
12:19 TeamFremont: bit of a fail on the opening
12:19 philhaymes-1: and yet still better than the entirety of the MS conference
12:20 QuVat: love the art style, and everything about it looks great. Just REALLY hope it works the way they want it to
12:20 mormonrage: yup, staggered–Reggie needs to come back swinging
12:20 rockhstrongo: yup, still the best so far
12:20 elewis17: I’m all over this like Oprah on a ham

12:20 rockhstrongo: here comes the casual junk

2:23 TeamFremont: honestly, could be fun
12:23 QuVat: absolutely
12:23 philhaymes-1: I can see that, not for me but I can see it being a laugh
12:23 mormonrage: it will be fun
12:23 QuVat: mario hoops 3 on 3 for the DS was great
12:23 mormonrage: but, man, that is decidedly unimaginative
12:23 philhaymes-1: again next year..

12:24 rockhstrongo: numbers time
12:25 rockhstrongo: they talked to moms.
12:25 elewis17: I can’t see how people play more Wii than any other system in the US

12:26 QuVat: yay wii party
12:26 mormonrage: “Wii Party–an all-new party game for Wii”
12:26 rockhstrongo: ugh
12:27 mormonrage: I love it when people define a term with the term

12:26 QuVat: yay wii party
12:26 mormonrage: “Wii Party–an all-new party game for Wii”
12:26 rockhstrongo: ugh
12:27 mormonrage: I love it when people define a term with the term
12:27 Dinkster: “released next year”?
12:27 philhaymes-1: it’s cool, they’re speaking with the dumb people

12:27 QuVat: Honestly the only reason I take out my Wii anymore is to play the occasional game of Mario Party with my family, this will be fun
12:27 mormonrage: I like how that clearly American family had a screen full of Kanji

12:29 rockhstrongo: golden sun you say?
12:29 TeamFremont: love golden sun
12:29 philhaymes-1: golden sun yeah
12:29 TeamFremont: glad it’s in here

    I think that sums it up for me

  2. John says:

    I said this in the other entry, but Nintendo really nailed this. Tons of fan service, announcements, and surprises all while managing to make it a practical E3 conference. See guys? It can be done! These things CAN be for people other than (and including) Wal-Mart buyers and Red Book Magazine editors. It can also be done without coming off as smug, hype-peddling douche bags. Nicely done.

  3. ilduce620 says:

    Soooooo pleased with this press conference. Perhaps it’s just residual disappointment from previous Nintendo E3 showings, but this one really hit it out of the park. Unlike Microsoft, they focused on a lot of games, and most importantly, games that a wide variety of people care about. Sure, Wii Play isn’t going to excite the proverbial “hardcore,” but it’ll sell more units this Christmas (especially if they have some bundles). Metroid, Zelda, Kid Icarus, Golden Sun, Dragon Quest…those titles were almost enough to excite even the most jaded fan, but the 3DS hardware really seemed to blow people away. I have a DS Lite and the DSi and the DSi XL didn’t do much for me, but what I saw of the 3DS makes me want one all kinds of bad. I look forward to hearing more hands-on impressions of it throughout the week.

    I watched Sony’s too (perhaps we’ll get another post about that here?), and while they did pretty well, even with the Portal 2 announcement, I think Nintendo still had the best conference.

  4. I didn’t see the actual showing, but from looking at the games they announced and showed it looks like Nintendo was by far the best out of the 3.

  5. deadward says:

    Nintendo totally killed it. Maybe it’s because they don’t pimp shit for 3 years the way MS and Sony do, but they showed basically all interesting things we hadn’t seen before.
    The 3DS really took me by surprise, I wasn’t expecting to get that hype on it, but my frothing demand for this device is truly increasing.

  6. Zinswin says:

    I’m still looking forward to the Nintendo peripheral I can stick on my dick.

  7. tribrix says:

    Sounds great, the only problem with that peripheral is that it won’t get any support (do Nintendo peripherals ever get support?)
