5 games at E3 which failed to live up to expectation

TotallyGN writes: There is a lot of good that has come out of the various conferences at E3 over the past few days, but for every good there is a bad. This is where I write the 5 games that let me down at E3 and covers all the respective conferences so as not to be bias towards one company...

Not a very descriptive or well written article. In terms of the Smash Bros complaint, of course Nintendo isn't taking it seriously. Do you want a playable character to be the boy in the striped pajamas? Smash Bros is a goofy celebration of Nintendo star power--not a social commentary.

boy in the striped pajamas uses his expert skills to lure you into certain death.

There shouldn't any expectations for racing games anymore, so GT6 isn't valid. They're only going to look so much better. What else do you expect. There's more room for improvment in Football games and Basketball games. It's like how you gonna improve Golf, Boxing, and racing by so much anymore.

Killer Instinct five times.

yea obviously all the good devs that were in rare originally that made the awesome killer instinct games on the snes etc bailed after microsoft brought out rare and did nothing with the company.. just milking off the franchise for a quick buck ...

Yea you can see with it using a free to play model and charging for extra characters...

Did this guy seriously think that ACBF was going to be anything different than it's predecessors? That Ubisoft would dare to stray away from a money making formula? Seriously...no. Stop buying that crap. The redundancy in gameplay is getting to be way ridiculous.

How much can he expect these games to change from the previous?

Smash bros-still beating each other up
Gran turismo-still racing
Assassains Creed BF- still assassinating

Assassins creed has been annual for the past few years now also so that can only be so different.

Earthbound Creator Says Nintendo Considered Mother 3 Translation, But It Was Complicated

IGN writes: Mother 3 is one of the most hotly-desired RPGs ever, having never received an official translation in North America despite the cult popularity of its predecessor, Earthbound. But over all these years, series creator Shigesato Itoi has never weighed in on the discussion - at least until now."

They should remake Earthbound, and bring it to modern platforms.

A translated version of this game on Switch Online would be nice, and it would add a lot value to the Expansion Pak service.

Bring it already. Nintendo is frustrating at times

I would love to see an Earthbound game just redone with 3D-ish models and characters. Just having a remaster for Switch Online would be awesome!

Did you ever see the Earthbound 64 concept/materials? That actually looked really good, but I'd also take a HD-2D remake as well.

Nintendo seems very whimsical about what they give they're fans, sometimes they'll give them a bone (e.g. Mario RPG, Thousand Year Door for the Switch), and other times, they just give them little to nothing (agh, the Zelda anniversary).

When you consider the cost of gaming back then and even now, no excuses when costs are involved.

"The profit of these tournaments is directly impacted by these new rules, as sponsorships are being forbidden, maximum prize money is limited to $5,000, and food/drinks can’t be sold at the tournaments."

Why even bother.

1 thing I've realized over the years is that Nintendo likes bragging about "fun", but it's "fun" how they see fit, and they often go against their consumers for the dumbest reasons. Just gonna do this stuff underground style, who are Nintendo to stop anyone from organizing community based tournaments anyway? How does this actually hurt em?

Michiel19894d ago

They've always wanted smash to be seen as a fun, casual game and nothing remotely competitive, which is in stark contrast with how Sakurai develops smash. He puts in so many little things to master for high level competitors. It's just sad, especially for the melee community. They kept the community going for 2 decades now even while all the time nintendo was trying to sabotage them.
