the good: luigis mansion looked good

the bad: nintendoland

the ugly: pretty much everything else

They were supposed to convince gamers as to why we should get a Wii U soon instead of waiting a year or so for the next PlayStation or Xbox.

But they showed older multiplatform games and new games that can already be played on current PS3 and 360s.
They needed at least 1 or 2 big Nintendo exclusive announcements to make me want to buy a Wii U.
The whole time I was like "where's the big reveal!?".

i think thats pretty much what everyone watching the conference was thinking.

mike1up4286d ago

Good: 2 WiiU controllers, Pikmin 3, 3rd party devs not shying away from WiiU controller.

Bad: No Retro, Everything revealed already announced, Questionable graphics.

Ugly: WiiFit Family, NintendoLand, Iwata's casual money addiction.

Wii U gets zombie U & a very small portion of games from 30 & ps3 (alot of whats already out).. Oh i 4got about the Mii Disney Land! lol really nintendo?!?! I guess i expected a bit more from them so i feel a bit let down.. I thought it wouldve shown how much better the graphics on AC3 would be compared to the comp but once again, i was wrong.. TGS will show more of what i like to see tho

seriously? people are hating on nintendoland? I foresee great living room fun with it...
I liked zombiU, mario U and pikmin 3 , so I guess I'm already kinda sold. I'm just scared of the price, looks like you'll need a pro controller and a wiimote on top of the initial purchase

Goodbye New Mario, I Won't Miss You

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is the first Mario 2D game in almost two decades without the New Super Mario art style, and it looks all the better for it

Am I missing something? It looks exactly the same, just higher resolution… Is this sarcasm?

specialguest248d ago

Yes, you're not observant if you think it looks exactly the same. It immediately appeared different to me from the start. Mario's 3D model will always be the same, so not much difference there. However, the animation they've given the Super Mario Wonder makes it look more like a CGI Mario animation where as the New Mario Bros game looks more like typical video game animation movements


__SteakDeck__248d ago

@specialguest Yeah those animations are insane.

FinalFantasyFanatic248d ago

You really didn't notice the difference? It's really obvious, I was surprised when I first saw the trailer.

Asplundh248d ago

"Am I missing something?"

Your glasses maybe?

Juancho51248d ago

This Mario game looks great, getting a switch for this and Mario RPG. CANT WAIT, TITS JACKED.

Profchaos248d ago

Yeah I liked how much more emotion could be conveyed through the new style at first glance I didn't see much difference but then rewatching the trailer I'm seeing more and more animations that remind me of the Mario artwork from the manual of smb3

Outlawzz248d ago

I hated the new super Mario bros Style. This new one seems a lot more expressive and less generic. I hope it's a good game

shinoff2183248d ago

I prefer the 2d Mario's. Me and my girl have played them all together and mario galaxy , Mario odyssey. The 2nd player option is extremely eh
