Nintendo announced their E3 plans today and…it was not what I was hoping for. And so I ask, along with everyone else, what is Nintendo doing? Could this be their worst E3 ever?
Will This Be Nintendo’s Worst E3? Will haters ever stop assuming Nintendo can't do anything exciting/right? Has the sky suddenly turned green with purple polka-dots before being frozen over? More on these questions and others, tonight at 11! *Eyeroll* It won't be Nintendo's worst E3. Zelda alone is going to guarantee that, but just because Zelda is the only playable game on the show floor, doesn't mean it's the only game announcement they'll have. Not once did Nintendo EVER claim that they would be announcing nothing other than Zelda. Haters are assuming otherwise, then laughing like retards while assuming the show will be a flop. Put your crystal balls away; even at Nintendo's worst of E3's, they've always announced or covered multiple games.
I don't know if it'll top last years cringeworthy Digital Event, in which the company put on a muppet show, but having just Zelda at this years E3, is really embarrassing on so many levels ;)
each year has got worse and worse. i expect this years e3 to be nothing short of a horrendous catastrophic disaster for nintendo. what happened to nintendo? its almost as if it died with iwata
At no point did they ever say that Zelda would be the only game they'd show at E3. It's just the only one playable on the show floor. You know, the show floor you and 99% of the rest of the gaming community won't be attending.
Damage control as usual.
Spinning as usual, both you and diss; taking shit out of context to hate on Nintendo has basically become your M.O. @ Ava It's not crowd control, it's correcting blatant lies; everyone's claiming Nintendo has said that they'll only be showing Zelda at E3. Nintendo has never once said that. You can call it "crowd control" or whatever else you want, but the fact is, a lot of people here are spreading misinformation. If no one corrects it, it spreads like a plague of stupidity. I'm against spreading stupidity.
Nintendo needs to cut this guy a check lol
Nintendo, wonderfulmonkeyman is the new Reggie U hear me. This dude will back U the fuck up so cut him a check & get the other Regganator out the office. Really these articles need to stop because it brains washes the ppl that are new to gaming not want to pick up great games from Nin ect.
lol shilling as usual
Once again, Monkey man is first to do crowd control for Nintendo. I actually clicked here thinking he'd be first. Lo and behold, he was.
For me personally this is going to be one of my favorite e3s ever. Getting one of my most anticipated games of all time as the main focus? Yes please.
Well, with all major 3party devs abandoning the WiU and no games from Nintendo releasing this year except for Rio and Paper(which I dont care) and Nintendo announcing the NX for March, well yes, this will be Nintendo's worst e3 ever, simply because they have shifted their efforts on the NX that we don't even know nothing about. Nintendo should pull out from e3 for their own sake this year. I'm not watching a boring 3DS e3, with games that I don't even want.
Would people react this negatively if Sony were showing off Uncharted alone at e3?
Yes. Don't get me wrong, Zelda will be awesome, but to have so little presence on gaming's biggest trade show less than a year before launching a new console is kind of weird, and disappointing.
After E3 what happens? Everyone goes back on the internet to stay in touch with more gaming news in the future. So Nintendo knows that & they are saying why spend all that money when we can gradually spread our gaming news throughout the year on Directs for the net to show & see.
If all Sony showed off at E3 was 1 Uncharted game you can bet your last dollar that people would be up in arms screaming and fearing that Sony was abandoning that hardware. This 100% should anger EVERY Nintendo fan who bought a WiiU.
It WOULD, if there were ANY TRUTH to the FALSE CLAIM that Nintendo's ONLY SHOWING ZELDA. The ONLY thing Nintendo has said is that they will be putting Zelda out as the only PLAYABLE game at the show. They NEVER said that they wouldn't be announcing any other games. Christ, it's like people do more reading of the blank space between lines than the actual lines themselves.
Yes, absolutely as that doesn't really make any sense.
Maybe, but who cares....E3 gets less foot traffic than even TGS does now
Well when you have only one game, one could imagine how it would be their worst E3.
Not once did they say they won't be announcing any other games. Only that Zelda will be the only one playable at the show floor. Big difference. Stop hate spinning. "Stop damage controlling" Stop trying to cause damage and I won't have to control you by tugging on your leash, mutt.
Stop damage controlling.
Nintendo is so completely out of touch with what consumers want it's laughable already
Look, with them only showing 1 game at E3 and not holding any kind of press event in person or online...I don't see how you could not see this as their worst E3. The game may be fantastic but having only 1 game is about as bad as it could be.
They never said it will be the only game they announce at E3. Not once.
Well it's all but confirmed at this point. There will be no ND and the treehouse starts streaming Zelda starting at 9am. Same time the do a ND. I am highly doubtful they announce anything at all.
Well they're in transition for NX so the lack of games is acceptable, though i still wonder if there will be a direct before e3 so we can see the other games like pokemon and paper mario.
I wouldn't say worst E3, but it is shape up to be a very disappointing one.
Nintendo will have a seperate event. E3 is quite irrelevant
We'll have to see. On one hand people give them sht for games like Metroid Federation Force. On the other hand, people are giving them the same sht for focusing on the one title that everyone is claiming they purchased a WiiU for. So, we'll have to see.
Unfortunately, it seems like it is.
One thing is for sure. Whatever event Nintendo has to unveil NX had better be pretty damned spectacular. Whether it is at Tokyo Game Show, or their own event (hopefully a return to Spaceworld.) It seems like it just keeps getting worse. They aren't going to even have a Digital Event this year. Zelda is not everyone's cup of tea. I know people that eat, sleep, and breathe Nintendo, but don't care for Zelda. What are they supposed to do? This is terrible business practice by Nintendo. They run the risk of pushing people so far away that whenever NX is finally revealed no one will care except the completely sold-out, brainwashed Nintendrones and they CANNOT carry a console by themselves. EXHIBIT A. The Wii U *drops mic and walks off the stage*
The only reason to worry is if you are getting your hopes up too high. If you are expecting only zelda, enjoy that. Temper your expectations. Why are you expecting more.?
Clearly. And that is saying a lot.
E3, TGS, these events are largely irrelevant. Nintendo is doing the right thing avoiding E3 all together..........considering people are never happy what they do at E3. Who cares
A few quotes from the article: "... I have to say that I am disappointed that the new Zelda game will be the only game for Nintendo at E3. I didn’t think that this would actually happen.... I was so very wrong.... "... I’m hoping that we’ll see a Direct in June or sometime in July. There has to be... I have to believe this. I’m not ready to give up on Nintendo.... "... My faith in Nintendo lately has been taking a major nose dive... I hate how disappointed I feel in my favorite video game company today...." My advise to the author: Just give up on Nintendo already - like I did a few years ago - and you won't have to keep suffering disappointment after disappointment. I really pity NIntendo fans these days. Do like Elsa and let it go!
I really pity people like you, who have nothing better to do than go into articles and just spew negativity.
Nah. One of the worst ones, probably, but not THE worst. Never forget: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Nintendo announced an event for the NX with launch titles, new games. Relax
Can't be worse then their Wii one back in 2008 I think it was lol...
Good or bad reveal - at the end they sold 100+ million of those things ... Just saying.
Yes but E3 itself it getting worse every year. Stage shows are always awkward and boring and a outdated format for E3 (it stopped being a press only event a decade ago). Then again E3 is losing relevancy. Pax,GDC,TGS,Gamescon,TMG,Mag,S GC and many more. E3 was created because VGs needed their own place and CES was not cutting it and after 21 years E3 outlived itself. Developers like EA and and others and dropping from E3 to do their own shows. So sure I guess Nintendo only doing Zelda will be the worst in terms of nothing new announced but does it really matter? PS4 and XBO were unveiled in their own events. NX will also be. When Zelda releases no one will care good or bad E3. If anything I think Nintendo should bring back Spaceworld and unveil the NX then have treehouse on the floor. Playable units and have it streamed on twitch.
It will never end. These asses will continue to say every E3 year is Nin's worst.
I say wait until E3, until then no one knows.
