As I Saw It: E3 2012 Nintendo Press Conference


PLEASE NOTE: This is my comments from Twitter that I made as the conference happened. If you can’t handle a difference of opinion from your own, then please DO NOT read this or comment.

* Miyamoto’s got Pikmins in his pocket! #creepy

* I hate to break it to Nintendo, but your Wii U is *still* hooked up to the TV.

* It’s been 10 years since the last one. Dissing their Gamecube about not being able to handle the power of Pikmin 3 is funny.

* Shout outs to a few live streaming providers of their conference. What about, Reggie? They did it first and best in streaming!

* Nintendo All-Access at E3. A name to remember, Reggie says. At e3 *dramatic pause* .nintendo *dramatic pause* .com

* NES comparison with Wii U with 2 controllers. INNOVATION! >_>

* I love how they feel the need to explain their new controller. Who’s such an idiot to need this?

* Is this the menu of the Wii U? It looks like cluttered ass. Game icons (I’m guessing) with small Miis and speech bubbles. Definitely very cluttered.

* New Super Mario Bros. 2. It’s looking like every other tired Mario game.

* I’m sorry. New Super Mario Bros. U. Stop with the system name tie-ins to your game titles!

* Batman with new features we know will be pointless.

* BAT mode for all at once explosions. What’s this? A Michael Bay mode?

* It’s pretty safe to say that Scribblenauts Unlimited with have limited options.

* Reggie’s body is ready for Wii Fit U. I’m ready to not care.

* Husband in trailer got SCHOOLED! Get outta the way you fatass! Your wife is taking charge.

* Sing is some dumb stuff. Xbox’s Lips felt like it ran a trailer.
Reply to me::@VGnPizza: Their Lips should Sing on my Flute ;)

* 3DS system is SO awesome that it gets NO time at this conf. with exception of New Super Mario Bros. 2.

* “I won’t be explaining anything about this game.” *Cheers* (lol) Aug. 29th.

* Paper Mario Sticker Star with more gameplay. Whatever that means. I hate when they throw games out there quickly.

* Luigi’s Mansion 2. Can’t comment because we need to move too fast. I feel like Vince Russo wrote this press conf.

* Finally no more specific IPs getting the Lego look. I’ve been waiting for the generic Lego game! This is it.

* “Chase McCain? You’re a LEGEND!”
Reply to me::@gamespot: We feel sheepish for not knowing him.

* RT @SonicHomeboy: Well, that Lego City game does look charming. Maybe, maybe.
Reply::You mean generic.

* Yves of Ubisoft got lost finding his E3 booth and landed on Nintendo’s stage.

* I feel a Splinter Cell coming.

* Nope. Well, there is Just Dance 4…and four goofs on stage doing as Madonna said.

* RT @jeffgerstmann: Bring Flo Rida out here!
Reply::Let’s not.

* Tired zombie themed game ZombiU is back. Scan with the controller. Snipe with the controller. Break free with the controller. Door hacking with the controller.

* ZombiU zombiFucks Reggie’s face up and then onto Ubisoft games video. Transitions be damned.

* They list off game titles so quickly it’s really difficult to give a shit about any of them.

* Wasn’t that what I had back in the ’80s-early ’90s before Sony stomped their ass?

* Nintendo Land is PlayStation Home, but with their retarded looking Miis.

* RT @JimSterling: Nintendo Land. Can’t wait to play that for literally four minutes and then never again, forever.

* They are spending WAY to much time on this.

* Take one more look because I’m sure to think this isn’t stupid eventually.

* Remember it’s at e3 *dramatic pause* .nintendo *dramatic pause* .com

New Releases 2011: March 27-April 16


I would say the release of the 3DS this next week is the reason for so many games, but in reality most aren’t for said system. It’s just ridiculously stacked as this can easily be two weeks worth. It’s a good thing this is the case since the following week of April 3rd doesn’t have a single thing of note. Because of this the second list below is three weeks from now.

The interesting games of these three weeks for me are Rush’N Attack Ex-Patriot and WWE All Stars. Shift 2 Unleashed is another one, but it’s suddenly upon us. Talk about little to no marketing by EA.
