Elliot Zeichner argues that even though Nintendo's E3 presentation was predictable, it holds promise.
From article; "Nothing original was shown at nintendo's E3 presentation" Only DK in a brand new and original game for wiiU with more immersive barrel blasting at diff angles. bayonetta = new wiiU gamepad original touch gameplay mechanics that really work. smash bros = megaman now in smash viewtiful 101 = special and original wiiU gamepad pikmin 3 = player is now able to aim the pikmin on certain creature body parts where the pikmin will stick to like back, chest, head, feet even monsters eyeballs. mario kart 8 = players can now ride the sides of walls with original design of the tires as they transform inward to allow gliding of walls. mario 3D world = mario has new cat suit also green pipes are now clear and introduce a brand new original inward pipe gameplay. pokemon x y = pet the pokemon talk to them spend time with them in a more personal level face to face and watch them grow diff. etc etc
A nintendo fans idea of Original is very narrow i guess. I think u waould call mario at 60fps innovative. I haven't seen any next gen nintendo games yet. If u want the biggest variety of games at a good price ps4 is perfect. wiiU 3rd party support is near dead and can't run next gen games with 1gb+ ram(only has 1gb ram for games). xbox is $500. So $399 is just right 4 me. The most powerful hardware sits in the middle of the 2 price wise. may get wiiU in 2016 though. That FF15 & kingdom hearts will have ps4 selling hot In japan think. Nintendo direct was far from the least exciting to watch for me. Not really any surprises much. People will see luigi basketball and say "wow unexpected and original"!! Always mario something or DK somthing or kirby something. I see no reason to get wiiU yet. Especially becuz I don't only want to play nintendo games.
I find nintendo so washed out and boring, god help the lonely souls who play rehash after rehash.
@raccoon rehash like dead rising3, halo, and forza? or rehash like gt, elder scrolls, and final fantasy?
Last gen the Nintendo camp said it's all about the innovation and motion controls. Now they're coming back to there old formula, and that doesn't seem to be working very well either.
@shutUpAndTakeMyMoney but that is your view of things for me I cant wait to play Mario Kart 8, Super Mario World 3D, Pikmin 3, and Super Smash bros on the WiiU as it will make a nice change for me than buying Shooters and hack and slash games ive been getting for the last 8 years on the 360 and PS3. For me Nintendo and Microsoft offered more of the type of games I want on there new consoles than sony offered. Also FF has lost its way since 8 imo and I would take a Zelda game over FF any day. Also I missed Wind Waker on the Gamecube so I am happy it is coming to the WiiU. As I said its all about having choice and having Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft in the market gives us that choice and also a lot of IP's to get excited about. So far for me the WiiU and the Xbox one are the consoles I want to own and I will pick a PS4 up later on in its life.
So X (Xenoblade 2) isnt impressive or next gen ??? Looks better than 95% of the games shown on the other consoles !!
maybe you should read my comment carefully again. being original and creative is 2 different and yep very advanced the ps4 is. its 2013 and ps4 STILL with sPlit screen? woW
Leave Wii U alone....it's not a sprint, it's a steady pace. Even MS would tell you that!
wii u wont be left alone unless you bash the xbox one more. i do not see wii u owners destroying the xbox one but some are actually saying they gettin a wii u and xbox one combo. wii u owners in for a thrashing if they refuse to unite with ps4 and pc gamers to destroy the xbox one. know who your freaking allies are dudes. for fricks sake.
"Unite"? "Destroy"? "Allies"? Dear God, you're exactly the class of fanboy / tool I never want to become. Ugh.
There's really no reason to buy one in 2013 though, and at that price, there's going to be extremely heavy competition in 2014.
None of that is entirely original/good. They didn't fail but they get a sad face on their report.
what original did any of the others show? bro shooters? and open world dude games? everything looked like last gen with shiny paint on it.
Your entitled to your own opinions but at least the sony and Microsoft are confident to show new faces... All of nintendo's top ip's look like 3d cartoons with the same old faces i played when i was 6 years old! Im 23 now and deserve more unique adventures like "the last of us" or "the order:1886"..... I truly admire your passion and dedication for Nintendo but dont you guys think you deserve a bigger variety of new IP's?
as long as the games are fun i could care less who the character is or the name on the case. the problem with most of what everyone else showed off was more shooters. didn't bros get enough of that last gen? oh but wait this time we are going to make them fake mmos. everyone is putting out the same stuff, nintendo isn't alone in that. difference is halo is now called destiny, and modern warfare is called titanfall.
Sir, nintendo characters can barely show emotions besides the basic happy, sad and mad face maybe thats all youre capable interpreting... I enjoyed the mario lands/karts, Zelda's, metroid primes, star fox's , pokemon's and other nintendo IP's to the point where they make me sick! but as i said youre entitled to your own opinions even if you're a 12 year old that enjoys the same old same... I have incountered a nintedo fanboy and your delusional levels are chart topping so i must eject this senerio and let you enjoy mario kart 18, i mean 8. I wont reply to you anymore so you get to enjoy the last word... Oooops Just noticed you ran out of convo bubbles...
No argument there.
all the hate nintendo is getting yet they announced more games for this year then anyone else. and not just games. big titles coming this year. mario, dkc, wonder101, zelda, wii fitu, pikmin. all first party and all this year. not to mention the 3rd party games coming. wiiu is kinda loaded with quality this holiday. if they can advertise it right thy should do very well in the holidays.
ubisoft will only carry wii u so far unfortunately.. my wii u is covered in dust because I haven't touched it. I honestly prefer playing my vita and 3ds vs wii u. this will restore my faith in wii u for about another 2 years... after that there will be nothing.
all the titles nintendo announced shows nintendo will be carrying the system with loads of first party titles. perhaps you should turn on your wiiu and get some classic games on vc, or some eshop games, i've had plenty to play on mine. also if it has dust perhaps you may want to take time away from a game and do some cleaning. just saying. you do realize this 3d mario isn't being made by the mario galaxy team right? this was a quick fix to help the system this holiday. same as zelda. they knew they needed titles out in a hurry and they have done that.zelda and mario hd will be shown next e3
You must have a very dirty house :) Im pretty sure nintendo will announce something else in the next 2 years.
"you do realize this 3d mario isn't being made by the mario galaxy team right? this was a quick fix to help the system this holiday." Actually, Super Mario 3D World is being made by Nintendo EAD, who are, in fact, the dudes behind both Galaxy games, as well as 3D Land. You guys (yugovega and Raccoon) are going pretty much like this: -"HURR DURR Y U PLAY THE SAME CUTEY CARTOONY GAMES OVER AND OVER HERP DERP" - "HURR DURR Y U PLAY THE SAME DUDEBRO SHOOTER GAMES OVER AND OVER HERP DERP". Do you realise how ridiculous and hypocritical you both sound? It happens that we, as gamers, have different tastes, and we should do well in respecting each other's gaming preferences instead of taking a shit on ourselves just because we don't all like to play the same types of games. I'm outta here.
honestly the only highlight for me was Mega Man in super smash bros. other than that everything else meh.
@ yugovega "all the titles nintendo announced shows nintendo will be carrying the system with loads of first party titles. perhaps you should turn on your wiiu and get some classic games on vc, or some eshop games, i've had plenty to play on mine. also if it has dust perhaps you may want to take time away from a game and do some cleaning. just saying. you do realize this 3d mario isn't being made by the mario galaxy team right? this was a quick fix to help the system this holiday. same as zelda. they knew they needed titles out in a hurry and they have done that.zelda and mario hd will be shown next e3" ============================= ============================== I didn't say Nintendo was lame or anything like that man relax. I'm just saying after these major IPs there will not be anything else to look forward to (not limited to or including eshop titles). the VC games more people wont buy..again.. especially since they can be emulated on pc/phones. my wii u is not literally covered in dust. it was an expression used in America to mean that it has not been used in a while. I assure you my house is no crypt. All of the games shown at Nintendo's "e3 Nintendo direct" look amazing, were expected, are still being anticipated. They surely will do justice to the wii u system but, the "hard hitters" such as Metroid, Star Fox, TLOZelda, for instance, are the games that will drive the system. After the "hard hitters" there will be nothing of sorts to continue pushing the system, until a sequel of said "hard hitters" TLDR; Love Nintendo, will support. for two more years.
Well, there's still Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox, Kid Icarus, F-Zero, Ballon Fight, Ice Climbers, Punch Out, Mario Strikers, Mario Golf, Mario Party, etc, etc, etc... trust me, Nintendo has such a absurd shitload of IPs to fall back on, they could revive any of them at any moment to give us more good games. And the true Wii U Zelda is already in development, Wind Waker is just to tide us over until then. And it's pretty likely Metroid will come in one form or another later in the future. Yeah, I don't worry at all about Nintendo running out of IPs for the Wii U. They have more than enough.
Imagine microsoft conference without destiny titanfall battle field call of duty splinter cell no imagine Sony without destiny call of duty battlefield destiny the division all shooters all hyped about being next gen then look at Nintendo and wait no shooter jus games for all ages and fun games at that..
imagine if neither Sony or Microsoft held an e3 conference, and instead skipped around for about 40 minutes before showing you the room at e3 where you can play their games, if you were attending e3.
I will never ever ever ever ever ever enter a Nintendo topic again you guys are the most delusional gamers out there! By the way Your console is sinking with barely any 3rd party support and a bunch of the same old crap over and over again and again...
Lol Nintendo consoles used to b every body console at one point cuz parents always trust the contents they put out for their kids also the have games some of us adults love to play cuz its stress free.. The other two console I use to satisfy my lust for competitive multiplayer.. So there u go Nintendo for fun Sony and Microsoft for online ranting and hair pulling on occasion I do have a Lil fun wen I get my own back on someone I felt did me wrong :)
Mario Kart 8 is my game of show so far. It looks insanely good......and dare I say...FUN!
I didn't watch because already knew what to expect from Nintendo
It was predictable, but the games looked fantastic. And to the presentation's credit, it didn't waste my time with sports and other nonsense. It wasn't mindblowing by any means, but not bad at all imo. I'm definitely leaning on getting a Wii U in 2014. I'd put Nintendo 2nd to Sony as far my interests go (who had an amazing conference). Microsoft had some good exclusives, but nothing I'd be particularly interested in and I'm still dead-set on not buying one for the all the crap they're pulling.
I hit disagree and meant to hit agree
I am a big lover Nintendo but even I had to say that they need to do better. Mario kart was the one game that stood out but I'm tired of all the re hash. New ips would be nice. MS & Sony never blew me away but I was left thinking, if Wii U was my only console then I would be missing out on so much yet again. If Nintendo persist doing this after wii u then they had better com prepared. Next year can't be more dk, mario, only.
I don't get it, is no one else seeing this? Did I only imagine this awesome looking game? http://www.youtube.com/watc... and yes it's a first party Nintendo IP.
I liked Mario Kart 8 and Mario 3D World, but that isn't enough to get me to return back as a Nintendo faithful. Since the Gamecube, I just find their franchises so boring and monotonous. A Starfox game would be interesting, however it seems like the word 'new intellectual property' has been removed from their dictionary. Apart from 'X' - (is this a new IP btw?) - what is there on Nintendo platforms. I'm genuinely curious, someone respond if possible.
Well I can understand your feelings. I don't own a wii U myself as yet and I really think Nintendo needs to lower the price seeing that PS4 is gonna be $399. I'm pretty much guaranteed to go the Sony/Nintendo home console route like I always do. When they do drp the price of the Wii U I'll pick one up for sure. As for games I'm looking forward to for Wii U and 3DS (keep in mind these are upcoming games only, there are some already released games that I'm interested in as well and I own a lot of 3DS games as well): Wii U X Pikmin 3 The Wonderful 101 Bayonetta 2 Wind Waker HD Smash Bros Mario Kart 8 Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze Sonic Lost World Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem 3DS Shin Megami Tensei IV Bravely Default Flying Fairy Monster Hunter IV Dragon Quest VII A Link to the Past 2 Pokemon X and Y Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies Project X Zone Shantae and the Pirates Curse I understand how these may not be for everyone, and we're all entitled to our opinions but Nintendo has shown they they have a lot to offer me as a gamer and that there consoles do have a place next to my 3DS, PC and soon to be PS4 and Vita.
No sharable custom tracks on mariokart. mario 3d like mario game, no additional content on zelda WW HD and zelda hd tease nintend direct E3 2013 epic fail 2/10
