With the 3DS out and Project Cafe on the way, DeltaGamer looks at what Nintendo will need to bring to E3 this year in order to win the show.
Does this question even need to be asked when we know they're going to reveal a new console?
But will it have new IPs or the same old Mario, Metroid, Star Fox, etc.
Oh no? Lol. You're right though, who would want those quality franchises to keep coming back? I mean, Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 are the highest rated exclusives this gen, but Mario STILL needs to end. Who cares if the games are fun anymore? That's not what's important. You're right, Starfox needs to end as well although there hasn't been a single console Starfox game this gen. Besides, who would want that classic Starfox 64 formula in HD?
You know what is funny is at least nintendo doesn't take psp games and resell them to console owners at least we get sequel on top of remakes. I mean 3 uncharted in one console? Two resistances and no one hardly liked it. What another killzone? I'm sorry if people don't like those games but people love nintendo franchises. Even the weak ones sell good. Seriously nintendo has 3 RPGs, a new console with sequels of every thing I bought on the wii coming. They can't loose. The dev kits are easy to use even 3rd parties win. The hd problem will be fixed. Plus it is more powerful. Hd gaming at 60fps period. I mean if you want gaming acting like bad movies then you still have Sony. But if you want real games you know the reason why it's called video games because we play games more than watching a movie. Then yeah nintendo should not have a problem. Now fan boys will be pizzed but bias is a terrible drug. If nintendo turned all of their franchise into hello kitty I want be there for that, heck I'm sure 3rd parties pretty much need another hd console to make profits now. I mean the ps3 may take a beating after this but hey it happens.
And? It will be Mario Zelda and Metroid all over again in an endless loop
Yeah, I KNOW! There were two Metroid games for the Wii. Way too many.
they gone add a game to that every gen i see lol Snes they were saying all mario, n64, they start saying mario and zelda, gamecube they started saying its mario zelda and metroid, (even though there was no metroid on N64 lol) I guess this time, they add Fire Emblem, Sin and Punishment, Pikmin, Animal Crossing, Smash Bros, or something else to the list. and it's funny how they ignore 3rd Party games haven't they heard of Killer 7, Resident Evil 4, Gun, Thirteen, Tales of Symphonia, no more heroes, Red Steel, Muramasa, Prince of Persia, Sonic, Cursed Mountain, Eternal Darkness, or anything third party before?
By having Shok decide who wins. :P
Step 1: Show up and show off the Wii 2. Step 2: Accept the win. The end.
Here we go again with these Bs articles: "How microsoft can win e3" "how sony can win e3""E3 predictions blaw blaw blaw, Just wait till e3 and im sure all of that will be answered.
These article are much better than the psn ones. This is actually interesting and its fun to wonder what they have hidden and to speculate on the announcements.
There games have to be faster.
MARIO ZELDA MARIO ZELDA DONKEY KONG MARIO ZELDA YOSHI MARIO ZELDA POKEMON MARIO ZELDA MARIO ZELDA PIKMAN MARIO ZELDA come on guys. i like to play nintendo games too, but let's not kid ourselves here.
They should just make "The Legend Of Mario" and get it over with. Instead of a horse to traverse the universe you get a Kart.
Or better yet, Grand Theft Princess: Trippin on Shrooms
^ .....I'd buy it.
If Sony had franchises they could constantly reinvent, they'd probably be as well know as Mario,Zelda,Metroid,Donkey Kong,Kirby,F-Zero,etc. Sony does have first party software, it just that the majority of consumers enjoy Nintendo's first party software(3rd party software was something Sony always relied on). @Disagrees Please, elaborate.
unfortunately, the "majority of consumers" are FORCED "to enjoy Nintendo's first party software"
So 86 million plus, were "forced to buy the Nintendo Wii?". Your logic is flawed.
Pikmin was just created last gen had only 2 games, and has yet to be released this gen! Trolls please Try Harder, by that Logic, I could Say Nexbox is going to be all elder scroll, because it had 2 games, or PS4 is going to be all Katamari Damacy? since it had 2 games on the PS2
unless u mean the re-release f pikmin 1, but no 2
again only 2 games. remakes do not equal a new game
I would literally stab and kill someone for new pikmin game! :D
its not a dam contest, there are NO WINNERS
announcing a new console is exciting, but if they come with a underpowered console, i think people will go away disappointed. if nintendo unveil a console graphically on par with ps3/360 to me that will be an unmitigated failure. they need to at least push the envelope beyond whats already on the shelves. we need to hear the console is backwards compatible with wii and upscales the games to a higher res. pc mods can do it, so there is no excuse! we need to see lots of strong 3rd party support! rockstar, konami, square, capcom etc! first party support alone is not enough! if i dont see strong third party support, this is another failure in my eyes. no gimmicks! all i have been hearing is these silly ideas about controllers with lcd screens and cameras etc... if i see one more add on device from nintendo i will see this as a failure! no more of these pathetic 'play series' games! wii sports and sports resorts were classics, everything else was total garbage, if i see one more play series game, i will know nintendo have lost any creative flair and it will be a failure! i want to see f-zero. who cares about f zero wii, its too late, we need f zero on new tech. if i dont see f zero at the show, this will be a total failure! same with starfox, no next gen starfox= failure!
u know they aren't going to show both f-zero and starfox, and you know there will be add ons are you already before even seeing it trying to find a reason to hate it? @scissor F-zero GX kicked my ASS then spat on me. I beat the main story and unlocke dall the cars, but I never did beat that ghost/demon in the belt before I got rid of it
why not both f zero and starfox? thats not asking too much, we have gone a entire generation without those games, so im expecting nothing less then big announcements regarding those games at e3. anything less is unacceptable! how much longer do we have to wait!? instead of making mario galaxy 3, another kirby game and all these shit wii party games, they could be giving us games that are long overdue a new instalment. im not wanting this e3 to be a failure for nintendo at all, only after a totally shit 2011 for wii, my expectations are really high. there have been no games on wii this year so nintendo must be busy. at e3 i want to see what has been keeping them so occupied. if i dont see very good reasons then it will be a total fail for nintendo. @scissorrunner- yes i did complete f-zero x and gx. im not a fanboy, if speaking honestly makes me a fanboy then fuck it, i am a fanboy! we'l see anyway, e3s a week away right? not long to go
Starfox is almost dead. It ran it's course. Big N are trying to figure out what to do with them. Retro may be working on a Starfox. I was stating that we may see one of them at E3, but both is more unlikely. F-zero is the most unlikely. Starfox has been on DS, but F-zero has been absent since early Gamecube. SEGA helped make the last one, so Nintendo may be trying to figure out what to do with the series, where to take it, who to get to help with the new one. I want to see new franchises like Pandora's Tower,Xenoblade,Last Story, and Earthseeker too, nd I believe they'll show them, so I say we wait and see what happens at E3 Oh and I think the controller will be nice
It's a win pcz you know it is. Even if it's on par with the current spec hd it's a win just because it will get 3rd party support. Otherwise you would not be here. Oh you think it will not get ports. You do realize we are doing so many sequels because we can't afford a failure because not enough games are selling. The big publishers needed this so badly. I mean even the mighty id software needed help. It's good to know that nintendo can not win in the eyes of the fanboys. Sony has uncharted and some other seguels no one cares about and a hacked network. Ms has gears and um maybe halo. The problem is the two current hd twins need more franchises. Yet they are getting consused by vocal casual gamers that think they are hardcore. Before you ask for f zero tell me have you even beaten the last two yet.
