Elia of Nintendo Enthusiast goes hands on with The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes and leaves very impressed.
I didn't doubt it at all. Reminded me of Four Swords for Gamecube. I know it's quality. It's dat Wii U Zelda they wanted to see though.
...Which "they" had no reason to expect. I dunno why everyone's acting like Nintendo's E3 news was so disappointing. They said from the start the focus was going to be on 2015 games, and we all knew the WiiU wasn't going to have much in 2015 to talk about aside from Starfox and Xenoblade. Yet, somehow, their showing was a colossal disappointment compared to everyone else who was showing off games years away from release, or (as was the case with Square-Enix) hadn't even started development.
Agreed. For a franchise that has been around for almost 30 years, Nintendo is still finding ways to make it genuinely fresh and unique.
I wouldn't call turning making a Kirby-esque game should be referred to as "fresh". Maybe new to the series, not new as far as gameplay.
How does this game even slightly resemble a Kirby game?
Still not what I want tho
Nintendo had a terrible conference, the Wii U is dead, and they had sparse games. But they have a few games that I think look amazing: Xenoblade Chroncles X Yoshi Yarn Fire Emblem Fates Zelda Triforce Heroes And my daughter is flipping the fuck out for: Animal Crossing Home Designer
I think we need to have a little talk about what constitutes as "dead" Like a dozen top-tier games coming out for a console in the next 6 to 9 months, TO ME, seems pretty alive and well. I know people get pissed off about a lack of new announcements we weren't aware of previously but this situation kind of reminds me of when your six-year-old brother gets mad at you and then calls you a murdering whore because you took a bite of his candy bar. Well no, you may have done a dick move but that doesn't mean you're a murderer. They may have had a poor show but that doesn't mean the console is dead. After all, people have been saying the console was dead since it launched nearly 3 years ago. And I'm still seeing games coming. Come find me when there are zero games on the horizon for a Wii U, and nothing released in the past six months. Then we can formally declare it dead together
How can a $299 console be considered dead? I mean if Wii U was $149.99 you wouldn't actually consider buying one? That's crazy if not....
I have recommended it to friends and few bought it full well knowing they would play less than 10 games on it. They got bundles with 2 games for $250 or less.
I bought mine for $249 when Mario Kart 8 released. I love it!
Sparse games Super Mario Maker Star Fox Zero Yoshi's Woolly World Xenoblade Chronicles X Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Illusory Revelations #Fire Emblem Fatal Frame: Maiden in Black Water That more games coming from Nintendo than Sony and Microsoft Published games that arent remasters.
It was one of the few games in the conference i have seen widespread approval of. I doubted it up until they announced online multiplayer. I don't think i will buy it at full price, though.
while i was shocked how bad nintendos e3 event was, after watching the treeshouse events im feeling a little batter about the games. Not much but some.
It's not that people doubted it; it's just not what they were hoping for. Nintendo showed off a bunch of okay looking side games, but they failed to unveil any flagship titles that people could really get excited for. They needed Zelda U, a new F-Zero/Metroid, or a Mario game on par with Galaxy to succeed this E3. What we got was just a bunch of spinoff games that might be enjoyable in their own right but aren't really enough to look forward to.
Impossible, surely. Only games which push high graphic fidelity to bring a game to breaking point can win the hearts and minds of 'gamers'. A game which looks to be running on anything other than 'next gen' tech, surely a 'fail'. Oh, sarcasm.
