Nintendo disappointed their hardcore fans during the last couple of E3s. They can redeem themselves by announcing several new core titles at E3 2009.
Kirby a hardcore title? Hahahahahahha, oh come ON.
Kirby freaking rocks. Don't kid yourself. Easily as core as Mario and Zelda.
Some people like Core with no casual appeal. Take Halo 3, that's "Core" but it's also casual at some point, and that's why a lot of people hate Halo 3 online, because you find so many noobs out there. Or perhaps should we say Kirby is "Kiddy Core"?
Its a platformer. Platformers are core, core games take some kind of effort to play them.
Kirby's a great series -- don't get me wrong -- but it's decidedly casual. Kirby Superstar is one of the best platformers ever, but it's still casual.
I thought Kirby 64 was somewhat hardcore.It had some tough platforming parts and figuring out what elements you needed for the puzzles was interesting.
You could consider kirby really casual, but the concept is just great. Don't let the cuteness fool you, its just an amazing franchise.
I'm curious as to how many oh you have beat kirby or even played the games? Kirby is cute yet I could not call it casual. There is a reason why the kirby characters can kick a$$ in SSBB. Another hting is nintendo does not have to annouce lots of games they just need to do what SONY does and bring those games from the 3rd parties up at the show. Back in the day they use to just show us how cool the release list was and they were not a lot of nintendo games either. Nintendo should get behind EA and show off their tennis game, conduit, squares games and get some info of the other games. Show red steel2 etc and a bunch of motion plus games and demo them during the show even if it is closed doors to the press. It's ok for nintendo to be secretive about their games but they and trumpet other games all day long.
is right kirby is a legendary franchise and should be appreciated by any hardcore gamer
Titles They Need To Show/Announce Show: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Dead Space Extraction The Conduit Announce: Kirby Zelda Star Fox (they better) F-Zero New channels Good WiiWare games
^i was going to say that, you beat me to it.
No Pikmin love?
" you forgot kid icarus. " I come on, as much as i want a new " kid icarus" game, I think people are just hyped for this title because its been claimed to be in production. As far as i know most people don't even remember Kid on the NES. Nintendo has more games in the past, yest Kid icarus is suddenly so wanted.
I grew up playing Kid Icarus. I didn't just suddenly want it. I wanted it for the N64. I wanted for the gamecube but It never manifested. Yea he's in super smash brothers and that's all and dandy but for ME personally, I would very much welcome Kid Icarus. I'm sure with the right marketing, it will sell a boatload. At the very least, It's a first day purchase me and that's what matters.
OK, Kid Icarus Pikmin uhhhhh....something else, something else
new star fox please the n64 game was 11\10 in my book
They should hire Planet Moon to do it, they did a great After Burner on PSP.
The guy who writes these things for the examiner always ticks me off...not sure why, but he just comes off as a fanboy and doesn't know much about anything... Anyways, Monster Hunter 3's US release date please. And while I think we'll be lucky to get a new Zelda Wii or Mario this time around, I really want someone to have picked up at least Star Fox and F-Zero.
New Pilotwings would be fantastic, but quite frankly they could announce nothing at all and still have the best 2009 lineup, easy.
i read somewhere, maybe here, that the star fox creator doesn't want a wii title. anyways, a kirby game would be nice, since the GCN got shafted, we only got a kirby spin off, granted it looked like a child's game, be have you tried unlocking everything? holy **** you've got to be on video game roids or something, like complete 6 laps in 5 seconds with the crappy star. and lets hope all around, E3s better this year, i agree they do need to show some "hardcore" games or some nintendo fans will be angery, lucky, the big N looks like its getting some great "Hardcore" games this year.
The big difference between this year and last year is that E3 re-opened their doors to the public again, yes? Last year, it was closed, so E3 was hardly relevant to anyone but retailers...this year should be better now that gamers are back into the equation.
the doors aren't open to the public, that was a rumor that was killed months ago or did i miss some new announcement?
Wikipedia says that this year had "been reopened to all qualified computer and video game industry audiences", so I think that means more or less the public.
i really, really wants a new SF, and maybe the annoucement of another Metroid... a side-scrolling one... ah would make my life really wonderful...
Hey Reggie (or NoE for that matter) Fatal Frame 4 or a good hard punch in the face Your choice!
I'd have to agree on Fatal Frame 4; it's already been developed and released in Japan, just give us an English language version ffs. I also think it's about time we got a new Wii Zelda title; I like Mario, but he's been whored out in enough games for a little while.
they are a small minority in the grand scheme of things. Nintendo has appeased the hardcore: GTA DS, Madworld, HotD: Overkill, Dead Space, RE, NMH2, MH3, Muramasa, Conduit, Red Steel 2 and so many more. The "fad gamers" just need to buy the games and stop downplaying the Wii on the internet. Buy games people!!
There the bread and butter of the videogame industry, always have been.The balance has always been maintained due to consumer appeal but higher costs and minimum gains from the hardcore side of gaming have been put aside for profit. Nintendo doesn't need to satisfy just the hardcore gamers scene.They need to find that balance so that the Wii can be truly a sucess.Third parties will have to also learn from their mistakes if they want their titles to be held within the same breath as Nintendo's titles. I expect Nintendo's E3 showing to cater to all gamers while maintaining a bit of mystery to when exactly can we play these highly anticipated titles.
I don't think he was talking about the casual gamers.
People that beg to see a Mario/Zelda/etc. game at every upcoming E3 is part of the problem.
Ocarina of Time on the DS would make me happy.
how bout a way of playing all VC and Wiiware on the go with the DSi.
... and no, Spirit Tracks ain't cutting it. A new Metroid is asking too much I know. And for Mario to impress me these days he's gonna have to leap out of the screen take my hand and say," Let's a go. Waa haaa!!" Then whisk me off to some magical land where I can butt stomp all the goombas I can see. All in glorious 480p. Sorry I had to throw that in there, but seriously it makes my eyes water for at least 10 minutes before I can adjust. I don't really care about Kid Icarus ( only because the NES version kicked my ass ) and I'd worry about a new Star Fox. Especially after reading Miyamotos' take on the series. My suggestion... keep Star Fox out of ol' Shiggys' hands and basically make a Star Fox combining the levels from Star Fox 64 and the SNES versions. With updated graphics, less chatter from your team mates, even less Slippy, and 4 player online co-op. I thought I'd never say to keep anything out of Miyamotos' hands but the man's thought process as of late makes me nervous.
I hope this e3 brings more awesome 3rd party titles then 1st party. A new kirby might be nice if they can really update the experience. Kirby has felt a bit stale as of late. Factor 5 better have some goodness weather kid icarus or otherwise. But he did bring up retro... I had forgotten about them. I hope they do have something their working on get debuted at E3. Though as much as we are expecting from nintendo I expect the third parties to be bringing some serious wii noise this year.
Please Please Please Fragile & Tatsunoko VS Capcom
The only things I need to be satisfied are Star Fox Wii (Built exactly like 64) and Pikmin 3. Imagine Star Fox Wii with co-op and leaderboards... pure awesome.
I would really really like to see NINTENDO FOR ONCE IN A LIFETIME TO SEE A MATURE RATED ZELDA TITLE. THAT WOULD KICK SOME A$$ IF THEY CAN JUST DO THAT JUST ONE TIME (PLEASE). SIGH ONLY DREAMMING.
