Nintendo's Conference was poor. Obviously their best thing was Pikmin 3, followed by Paper Mario 3DS and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

"New Super Mario Brothers U, and 3DS" are unnecessary. I just don't like NSMB. Adam Sessler made a point, it was good to show NSMB for the WiiU to see how it looks like with the console, but then you show NSMB on the 3DS and there isn't much of a difference. (Not word for word obviously but that was his general point.)

And about Paper Mario, I don't know if I like the fighting to be strictly dependent on stickers. While it is nice to see something different, I still like the old fighting system.

Obviously excited for Pikmin 3, I think Pikmin is a fantastic franchise and seeing how it works with the controllers seemed to add on to the possibilities for this game. Miyamoto did a great job.

Luigi's Mansion still looks promising.

But overall, No Legend of Zelda, No Metroid, No (Good) Mario Game, No Super Smash Bros (but we knew we wouldn't see that.), Nothing from Retro Studios... So the conference was not that great.

While it is nice to see games like Arkham City and Mass Effect 3 making an appearance on the WiiU, now the question is "Why should I buy this game for the WiiU when I have already bought and beaten it on the PC or Console." It is nice to see the companies care enough to port their games over but really new games will be what makes a difference.

Nothing was said about the Network, I would have considered Nintendo's Conference to be a success if they detailed or showed their Network plan. Core Gamers won't give much of a shit if the console still lacks a Competent Network Structure for Online play. Miiverse is interesting and all but still, I need to see more of the network.

I thought that was why they did the showing on Sunday.

Regarding everything else, I agree.

Because we only need one E3 thread. Razz

Watch_Dogs does look interesting, and if it is as of the high quality as I think it is then I will definitely buy it.

I would also buy Last of Us, but that is a PS3 exclusive made my Naughty Dog.

More AA, Motion Blur, and Better Textures, at least.

Btw, Watch_Dogs is my game of the show.
