Nintendo E3 2012 Press Conference: The good, the bad, the ugly and the missing

XMNR: Nintendo was the last of the big three console makers to hold an E3 press conference on Tuesday and, just like I did with Microsoft and Sony, I am covering the good, the bad, the ugly and the missing after sleeping on my initial thoughts on the presentation. Everyone expected Nintendo to come out guns blazing with the Wii U re-unveiling but the show was punctuated more by what was missing than what was shown. (3DS, E3, Lego: City Undercover, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, New Super Mario Bros. U, Nintendo, NintendoLand, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Rayman Legends, Wii U, Zombie U)

IMO:

Good: Pikmin 3, Zombi U, Mario Bros 2, 2 tablet supported
Bad: NintendoLand, too many old third-party games shown, Wii Fit U
Ugly: Undead Reggie, Just Dance 4 demo, Sing trailer
Missing: Metroid/Zelda/Smash Bros/Star Fox/F-Zero/Wii U price/Wii U release date/surprising announcements

Why 8 ubisoft games but not Farcry3? 3rd party not doing wii u versions pisses me off. Im ready for next gen consoles now. Give me new games this fall and ill be all over the wii u versions. Who wants to play year old games?

No release date either.
I feel like they aren't telling us everything.
