A lot of people have been calling foul on Nintendo's E3 press conference, saying that they lied when they promised they would show off games for the hardcore at the event. But the fact of the matter is, Nintendo didn't make such a promise.
Looks like a bunch of people just got pwnt.
I never heard promises neither about showing those games , but thats not the point . Their show sucked hard . If you dont plan to adress HC gamers at E3 , it's your right , just dont ... but dont insult people's intelligence by mentioning "hardcore games" such as Animal Crossing and GTA ds.... and dont expect gamers to find your offering good .
I would really like to know who is buying all these games because of all the titles Nintendo have announced I am only looking forward to The Conduit and Tales of Symphonia 2. I'll reserve judgment on Pikmin 3 until I see some footage.
They lied to people with wiis' and ds'
Sorry had to say it.
You could honestly say that for the other 2 as well....it was a pretty lame e3.That being said there was a few cool announcements and also a lot of new trailers made available which is always good.
The bill clinton approach to telling the truth. All depends on what your definition of a lie is...
In truth i'm not sure sony or nintendo was really at E3.They both sucked bad.I'd just like to know how E3 a casual event now.I think about it the only people that know about E3 are hardcore and my grandma was clueless as to what E3 was in fact i'd bet no casual gamer has any idea what was going on.If you call mario sluggers and wario shake core you need your head checked.Before you guys start trying to tell me what core is which i really don't care.I've been a big nintendo fan since the nes and have suported nintendo to this day.Mario is way over used and puting his ass in a baseball game is well far to much.Animal crossing is fun for a hour but is far from epic story telling or action.I`m so glad i got The Conduit to look forward too and it be nice to see that FF crystal bearers make it way to the wii this year.Madworld and deadly creatures sound cool.
there needs to be some hard core wii games dang it
..there is a bunch on the way...but unfortunately none were shown :(
They failed miserably to appease anyone. Wii Sports was their last big thing. Wii music? Fail. Wii motion? A peripheral no one will buy, and also fail. If I was Nintendo I would remember how the company came to be. The hardcore gamers. We don't need a casual friendly Zelda, Mario, Metroid, etc. Market your hardcore games as hardcore, and bring the casual market in little by little. Gradually casual games can become moderate/hardcore gamers right? The logic only follows anyway. Nintendo didn't say they wouldn't be showing "core" games or not but it was assumed they would. We core gamers might not be rabidly buying the hardware every Sunday to play one or two games...but we definitely and by far purchase the most software. I am a Nintendo fan and really disprove of the shift of focus in Nintendo. Money makes you forget your fans I guess.
"Wii motion? A peripheral no one will buy" I Guess yo missed the words "Wii" And "Sports" that comes allong with it. Stop pretending Nintendo is the only one who delivers games!
think that in most of his pics, reggie has that "well, we don't really care/maybe next time" look?
I think everyone just likes to use that picture.
I agree with most everyone that the nintendo press conference was mediocre at best ..but I think (raving rabids aside) the stuff they did show off was pretty good stuff...wii motion plus is a dream come true for me personally.I hope it's utilized to the fullest.....and despite the weird drummer guy... I found wii music to be impressive ...I mean it's nothin' mind blowing but still impressive....It's really the only music game I've ever been interested in...never cared about guitar hero.The biggest problem I had was the lack of third party titles shown...despite popular belief there is quite a list of core titles on the way...but unfortunately none showed up at the press conference.
"and despite the weird drummer guy." Every Gif i see of this guy makes laugh out loud.
Ever since the press conference I've had horrible nightmares...though I must say he can play the hell outta some virtual drums :)
