"Simply put: the Nintendo E3 Direct was very disappointing. It wasn’t awful by any means but it didn’t even come close to last year’s Nintendo E3 presentation. So what went wrong?" - Michael Pyre, Gamer Professionals.
Did EA write this?
Sony and EA said hi.
EA maybe, but Sony's conference as far as games go, was pretty decent, not as good as Microsoft's but good.
I wouldn't say Sony's was disappointing. I'm personally not into TLOU at all from a gameplay standpoint and felt that two Arkham-esque feeling games was a bit jarring and but there were a lot of good games. Was the presentation ridiculous? Yeah, but that's extremely minor to me. I don't think Nintendo delivered a bad show by any means but it lacked their most anticipated titles at the time like Metroid and Bayonetta, and even games we know are clearly in development like SMT V, Pikmin 4 and Animal Crossing. I think thats the thing that let their show down. Good reveals but no huge surprises.
I think they are waiting to take about SMT after Octopath Traveler releases. And won't talk about 2019 Pokemon until after Let's Go. And no mention of Prime trilogy makes me think it's not coming.
It was so bad their stocks plunged 16% and as of now haven't recovered... yeah it was bad. "Sony" Ghosts of Tsushima Spiderman TLOU 2... say hi. tool
And it was still bad. GOT looked blah, we've seen Spider-Man 2, DS looked pathetic and LOU2 looked boring.
Micheil ... you keep sayin rhat to urself ... these games were stellar ... and they sctually showed us innivation not a repeat of the same formula that is smash bros since the n64 ans they didnt go on about what each button does... nintendo's presentation skills are lacking and the guy doin the voice overs was so dull
All of the E3 preso's were very meh. Microsoft did well. Ubisoft did well. The rest .... not so much. Nintendo's prime focus is a port from Wii U with some polish on it. Sony's games were great...but the format sucked big time, and their was next to nothing new.
Still cant believe yall calling it a port when it's being built from the ground up in ue4 and mechanics are completely different. The last of us 2 is a port with a little more polish then lol.
What ever happened to streamlined consolidation of software development in one unifying platform? Where the games? Saw this coming miles away.
Nintendos e3 was garbage. No Bayonetta 3 or Metroid Prime 4 killed it for me.
Nahh. That title belongs to EA, as always. But I do agree that Nintendo had a rather underwhelming E3. Good thing that Reggie just said a few hours ago that they will announce new games soon.
As a fan of huge fan of metroid series I was disappointed, but it was no where as bad as EA or Square Enix.
Not as bad but still the most dissapointing ... from a major platform maker u d expect them to bring the goods ... i didnt expect much from ea or square so i wasnt dissapointed
Nintendo’s show was by far the weakest.
Agreed. This presentation had my highest expectations, but offered nothing new and shattered those expectations. The only positive was Fire Emblem Three Houses. Apart from that they focused on the three Nintendo franchises I really dislike... Smash, Pokemon and Mario Party. I went and made a coffee, unpacked the dishwasher and played some Stardew Valley while I waited for all the Smash Bros crap to end... and when it ended after that I was like, “WTF?!?”.
absolute garbage.. if your not a fan of smash bros, there was nothing to get excited about.
Even if you're a fan of Smash, it's been done to death, nothing new going on there. Boring.
