Just came back from my first day of E3. I have a pic of the Wii U controller. It looks like an Ipad with buttons. I'll upload it later, I'm pooped...

Chances are no because Blizzard don't tend to show anything at E3 and just save it for Blizzcon.

You do realize that we all know what it looks like, right? No need to show us.

Anyway, I just finished watching the Nintendo press conference (yeah I know I'm late, whatever), and I didn't think it was bad at all. I really hate handhelds, but now I really want to get a 3DS, it makes me sad that it's so overpriced. But, all of these good games coming out for it look awesome. Mostly just for Luigi's Mansion 2, I mean, holy fuck, that was one of my two wishes from Nintendo this year. I'm mad that it's only going to be on the 3DS though, I was hoping for a Wii, or Wii U release. 3

And Pikmin 3, I feel your pain, ZJ.

I think the Wii U looks promising as well. My first impression was "what the fuck is this blocky piece of shit?" But all of the possibilities seem cool enough. I have my PC for the eye candy, I like that Nintendo is trying to innovate, like always, unlike Sony, or Microsoft.

Some of the titles announced seem cool, but it kind of depends on how they work with the Wii U to determine if I would choose a Wii U copy over a PC one. Also price, I would like to know this.

*Screams*
In all seriousness, though, I'm happy with how this year's presentation went for Nintendo. While I'm not totally sold on the Wii U, I am really pumped to get a 3DS, as I really want to play the new Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Paper Mario, and Luigi's Mansion game. I'm also really eager to see how the remake of MGS3 works. Not too shabby.

Also, Mario Party 9 is nice. Hopefully it'll have online functions.

Are these the same titles they released last year?!

And the year before that!

How have Nintendo created something so recyclable!

I know but I've been waiting for an announcement about Diablo 3 cause if they followed the pattern for Diablo games it should come out this July but if we have to wait till Blizzcon for them to announce the beta then it definitely won't be out until 2012.

Are you even Half Familar with most of those games if you were you'd know that a good bulk of those game are spin-offs or just simply have mario in the game. Also that list is not a list of games in the series but a list of releases. It counts game on different platforms and also regional releases.

The main Mario Series is as fallowed form that list.

Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr
Mario Bros
Super Mario Bros
Super Mario Bros 2
Super Mario Bros 3
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Land 2
Super Mario World
Super Mario World 2
Donkey Kong (GB) DO NOT CONFUSE THIS FOR WITH ORIGINAL ARCADE VERSION.
Super Mario 64
Super Mario Sunshine
New Super Mario Bros
Super Mario Galaxy
New Super Mario Bros Wii
Super Mario Galaxy 2

This list is long But how long has Mario Been around for... Idk... OVER 25 YEARS NOW! have this discussion again 25 years from now and it will be the same deal with the examples I listed. Heck the Sims already has a list like that.

I was hoping the next Metal Gear Solid would be announced to be a spectacular ending to the series but it turns out the next game in the series will be featuring Raven instead of Snake. Oh well, in the PC category they could some pretty good games getting ready to be announced.

Whoa! They're making a game about one of the bosses from the first Metal Gear Solid game? Will we get to see his shaman origins and how he met Liquid Snake?

I don't care, The WiiU actually impressed me. Yes it looks huge and bulky, but I honestly don't think Nintendo would make a controller unplayable, for all we know it could be very comfortable to hold, and if bad feedback about it's bulkyness is received I'm sure Nintendo would compromise and make a more suitable version.
As for how it plays, I honestly think that the way they demonstrated it, it looked great. It looked like it can really work and be intuitive. I also love how you can go from TV to full on handheld, that's fuckawesome. And the specs is basically a fucking PC. "Battlefield 3 on the highest settings" Jesus H Christ, that hauls ass! New Super smash bros? And did you see that Zelda on it?! It looked beautiful.
I can't believe how much of you are bitching.
Only thing that scares me is that it'll be bombarded by shitty 3rd party games trying to make.....party games on it. Useless endless streams of stupid games like "EXTREME...chess" "SUPER MEGA FUNTIME...monopoly". I hope to god, they get amazing exclusives from 3rd party. Nintendo always does their Classics right, but they have to expand from that.

Also 3DS is definitely a must get now. Luigi's mansion 2 and new Smash bros.

I'm convinced.

As for the name bitching. It's just a name. It could be called shit on a stick with fart bombs, that has NOTHING to do with the consoles quality. There's not much sense in downgrading a system for some bullshit like that.

I'm convinced of everything except controller design and use and... well the fact that we don't know the retail price yet.

Gezz... You're not conceived of what? that the controller works?! Haven't you ever heard of the classic controller if the bulkiness is the problem? And if don't like it why the hell do you keep complaining about it!? You don't have to buy it.

No, went pretty much everywhere and didn't see a thing from Blizzard. Perfect World had a testing booth for a game called Rusty Hearts though. It's a new hack-and-slash MMO that isn't out yet. Pretty fun and looks nice.

Well here's a pic of me standing next to the Sonic statue in front the Sonic Generations testing booth instead. I'm not as ecstatic as I should have been because I was lugging around heavy camera equipment all day :p

They did, and it's coming out for the 3DS, sadly. I wish it was a Wii U or Wii title. Nintendo really knows how to make me buy all of their shit, and I hate them for it, but love them at the same time.
