I agree with his sentiments on Nintendo's Decision.

"No time for talking- time to show {Games}"

I said that they won't have a Presentation but they will have a "Present-Play-tion"
Getting people
(Press, Analyst, and Developers) to play and focus on their games is a far better idea (in theory and currently).

Plus, E3 is safe, it's not going anywhere.

Lets be honest, nobody wants another 2012 Nintendo E3 presser but i hope they are back with a presser at E3 2014. http://youtu.be/MahcXtk-QyQ...

So if they can do a better direct i wont complain i will just miss the gifs. Well did did have the Iwata with Bananna gifs so lets hope there are atleast a few gif worthy moments.

Also the whole Metacrtic site stinks. Should be shut down Obsidian(Fallout:New Vegas) should have never lost their bonus because of a metacritic score. The fact that metacrtic is even used to determine sales forecasts is just insane looking at you Wada.

Nintendo will be at E3 they just aren't going to have the Big Show/Press Conference.

I think there will be tons of Hands-On Previews after and During E3 due to the Special Press Events Nintendo is planning.

Both Zelda's, New Super Smash Brothers-Style, X, Retro's New Game, New 3D Mario, Bayonetta 2...
+ Whatever the Nintendo's Developer Team-Ups. SMTxFire Emblem is one.

I look forward to their report and I will miss their Press Conference (even though it may be for the best).

But you can have a Press conference and go right ahead with less talk and more games. Actually that is whats happening in conferences, show games, demos. But if they want to "no talk, just play". LOL I remembered a line from COD world at war when the protagonist is in captive by a japanese, he immediately walked to them and said "You!! No talk!! pleeey!!. If anyone remembers that and played it

lol @ modern masturbation! Seriously, I like this guy. Says what's on his mind and made some good points. Always refreshing to see someone who is not afraid to express their opinion. It's very true that Nintendo made a smart move. No need to jump into the massive fray at this point.

I cant believe people actually care about metacritic. I have never been on the site and probably never will. Scores mean nothing to me in the long run.

zme-ul1185d ago

to many people it means nothing
but the problem is to the publishers it means a whole lot of deal because they pay the devs based on those scores

Haules1186d ago

Thanks to metacritic, i managed to avoid Fallout New Vegas and the sort... there is always one or two "honest" reviewer out there. Yeah, scored a 95 when it was released with probably the highest count of bugs in gaming history. So.. fuck´em?

I just wish, sites like 4players.de would actually use metacritic as well... way too many "fake reviews" on that site.

GribbleGrunger1185d ago

Metacritic works fine for me. I use it to find all the individual reviews and check what each one had to say. The rest of Metacritic is a puppet show, and we all know who's pulling the strings.

Best thing to do is see the overall MC score. Read 3-4 professional reviews. 1 bad...1 good....one ok in terms of score.

Then read 4-5 reader/gamer reviews. At least one good and one bad.

Then go to a well populated gaming forum or one that you respect and read what people really think about the game and discover the real good and bad about each.

Pick through trash to find the treasure.
