It's been called Nintendo's most disappointing E3 performance in years, but just how disappointing was Nintendo's offering this year? Join the Nintendo Feed team as we discuss what disappointed us the most about E3 2015.
You know what disappointed me the most? That horrible Metroid game, No LOZ, No Devils Third, No Xeno X during the Direct, horrible graphics of Star Fox considering how good Bayo 2 looked, and no new 3D Mario or Pokemon. Literally every single thing that Wii U supporters and Nintendo lovers wanted they didnt get. Thank God I have an XB1 as well because after this year my Wii U is dead. I at least get 5 great titles this year. But after that I get nothing. I guess I will be playing Halo 5 Warzone.
Metroid Federation Force is by far the blackest mark on Nintendo's E3 record to date when fans hungry for one of the hardest core Nintendo cult-series got diluted in a casual co-op game.
My greatest disappointment is that we never got the Metroid Prime 4 we've been waiting for, much less that we got a Metroid in the form of Federation Force.
Let's see: - No Gamecube games. - No news about Club Nintendo replacement. - No Devil's Third. - No Project Treasure. - Whatever happened to Retro Studios' game? - No Pokken Tournament Wii U confirmation. Project Guard update after one year was basically: we still don't know what to do with this. And Project Giant Robot is apparently on hold. I did like what I saw of Star Fox Zero, but must admit, Mario Tennis, and Animal Crossing were vastly underwhelming.
After last years successful show they choked. Literally choked themselves outa competition. It's one thing to be in last place and put up a fight but in this years E3 I saw no fight. Such a disappointment from last year. Worlds of difference.
nothing screams "out of touch" quite like Metroid Prime Federation and Nintendo's general reaction of "huh?" when people demanded it be buried in the same New Mexico landfill as E.T. for Atari.
It amazes me how SO many people give this company a free pass on what they are doing.First they have you buy a brand new 3ds without any REAL support for it. You buy into the Wii U with a life span of only 3-4 years with NO metroid or ANY of they're MANY franchises.I read this article and all i read was a bunch of people who are ok with all of this. When will ALL THAT MONEY that nintendo made off of you be put to GAME DEVELOPMENT???Keep making excuses for them and they will NEVER step up and make all this up!!!
"they have you buy a brand new 3ds without any REAL support for it." The PSP 3000, The PS3 Slim, the Xbox Slim. Companies make you buy remodels all the time. Do not act like Nintendo is the only one who does this. " You buy into the Wii U with a life span of only 3-4 years with NO metroid or ANY of they're MANY franchises." Splatoon Animal Crossing Mario Zelda Star Fox DK Fatal Frame Xenoblade Seems to have a bunch. Not bad in that amount of time.
@ lionfumez619 - Well said. The "New 3DS" in particular is a huge ripoff; a slightly improved model, with only ONE GAME that uses its new features, and you have to buy the new model if you want to play that game! The sad truth is that Nintendo should have included the "enhancements" in the ORIGINAL 3DS, but as is typical of this company, they cheaped out (and bungled) the original design of the handheld. The launch 3DS had tiny, poor screens, no 2nd analog stick, crappy face buttons, and very slow CPU. Why didn't Nintendo put better features into the original one? Why are their product designs so weak to begin with? Simple answer: to force people to rebuy the handheld, several times, just to get a better model (3DSXL, "New 3DS"), and pad Nintendo's profits. All they care about is making money, not giving their fans good products in the first place. What a huge scam. No one should support a company that deceives their customers in this manner.
In general it was fine. People are hypocrites. That is the way it works.
