Yeah, Nintendo blew it out of the park with that one. Megaton bombshell! Lol.

@Muffins1223 - Yes, yes it definitely is sarcasm. XD

I don't get why so many people are so negative about DKC. It's the reason I bought my WiiU. DKCR and DKC TF will be the best games on the console. Retro did a truly fantastic job in every sense of the word. THey nailed the classic feel of the old games while making it new.

DKCTF is one of my top 2 anticipated games for 2014 along with Dark Souls 2. Also semi excited for Evil Within, The Birth of Isaac Rebirth & SuperSmashBros but everything else I don't care.

As someone who has played all the games in the franchise, I'd say the announcement of cranky was pretty huge but the execution of the event could have been better. I like Joe Mchale's comedy but the event just did not seem professional. You had the nintendo guys in suits and the rockstar representatives looking classy with the hosts in a plaid shirt and the other guy wearing layers of jackets.

Don't get me wrong, it was a step up from previous years where they had to use corporate advertising, but i think they took it a step too far. They need to find a happy medium with advertising. No doritos and mountain dew in the game award titles etc but make it look halfway professional at least.

I'm not saying it should be a suit and tie event but at least a dress shirt would have been appropriate for this type of event. Happy mediums.

I gave up an afternoon for this crap. throughout the entire show i kept saying ' it'll get better '. It never did.

I didn't get to watch it but from everyone reaction I didn't miss anything.

There's a 3-minute video highlighting all the "high moments" and the basis of the show. Just 3 minutes made me sick.

Here you go:

When it finished I found myself thinking I could have been playing this whole time, I want my 3 Hours back. From Joel making fun of gamers and the industry with terrible jokes and You Tube degenarate clips to the stoners trying to run the live music part which they seem to think anyone who plays GTAV only listens to Rap music and only showing what, 3 awards. This was no where close to being an awards show. No wonder Spike didn't air it, they should have stuck with the old format. Atleast do it in front of a crowd made up of the industry.

Never expect TV VG events to be interesting. Never.

just-joe1657d ago

That's where you went wrong. You expected too much if anything.

I quite like Mega64 when their doing they're daft video game pranks but what they did during VGX was dull.

BanginBiscuitz1658d ago

The majority of the show was terrible i agree, BUT Quantum Break and Titanfall looked amazing. The Division, and the Witcher as well.

UncleGermrod1657d ago

nice disagrees, maybe you shouldn't mention anything related to xbox one, as this seems to strike up some dark inner demons around here.

RytGear1657d ago

Well considering the "gameplay" footage of Quantum Break was barely even .gif worthy, even that was a disappointment.

about 3 seconds of actual footage does not qualify as the world premiere of anything.

Xsilver1657d ago

Quantum Break game play trailer should of been called look fast or you will miss it :/

UncleGermrod1657d ago

@rytgear, all he said though is that they looked amazing, and they did. Gameplay or not, they at least seem to show so promise. I guess I cannot argue that they did hype this up to the point where people expected much more. I cannot help myself from feeling that every comment that mentions a x1 exclusive gets ripped up for some reason.

I am glad to see that many studios didn't waste their hype on half-assed trailers for this mess of a show, though.
