A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

Splatoon came out of left field and is wonderfully creative to boot, so I choose that for Wii U. Meanwhile, for the 3DS, I think I was most impressed with Fantasy Life.

Tough choice but I will have to go with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. I got to try it at a Best Buy which was fun and ignited several Brawl tournaments at my house throughout the weekend.

I would also have to give it to Splatoon. It was such a fresh idea, and no one saw it coming. I'll be looking forward to giving it a shot.

Splatoon looks awesome and even better it came from nowhere without being leaked. But I have to give it to Zelda, it looks amazing even if we know nothing about it.

Well the obvious choice might be smash for both, but watching the tree house for Bayonetta 2, I think it snuck ahead for my game of e3 (altho every game shown for Nintendo looked great). I'm really excited about Steam for 3ds. Overall a great showing for Nintendo :).

Has to be Fantasy Life, since I never thought I'd get to play that in English. I hope the multiplayer is cross-region, so I can hand my friend the English version and system and play against them with my Japanese version.

The one that stood out to me the most was Splatoon. It's always cool to see Nintendo create neat new games. Another one that stood out to me was Devil's Third, which looks surprisingly fun and is quite a departure from Nintendo's usual style.

The two the really surprised me were Bayonetta 2 and Splatoon. Bayonetta prior to this E3 meant absolutely nothing to me, but everything I got to see (in conjunction with the first game packed in) have essentially convinced me to get it. Splatoon was also just a complete surprise to me, I have very little interest in that type of multiplayer-centric game, but it seems so charming and considerably more interesting than the typical shooter fare.

Despite the fact I'm kind of bored with Mario side scrollers (there are so freaking many, now), I'm going with Mario Maker. I really want that! I really like the idea that we could actually get something new in Mario with user generated content!

Splatoon definitely looked the most interesting but I'm going to have to go with Fantasy Life since it's more my genre of games

Just one? If I had to pick, it'd be the reveal of Legend of Zelda on Wii U. Open world with a beautiful art style. I can't wait to find out more.

Also absolutely loved Splatoon, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Codename STEAM, both Smash Bros games and Mario Maker. 2015 looks to be a very, very good year for fans of Nintendo games like myself.

Surprisingly enough, Yarn Yoshi, now known as Yoshi's Wooly World, would have to be my pick.  Lest we forget what it looked like just a year ago:





There's just no denying how much work they've put into this game.  When I saw the game last year, I was tepid about it, and just wishing it was Kirby's Epic Yarn 2, because that's basically what it looked like.  Now it's like a mixture of Yoshi's Island with a fleshed out yarn world ascetic, and I'm sincerely interested in it now.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is my pick for the Wii U game of show. The two 40+ minute demos of the beginning of the made the game look what I dreamed it would be. The vast vistas, character class system, crazy Japanese sci-fi story, and more have further solidified the game as my most anticipated title and personal system seller.


Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy - Curtain Call is my pick for 3DS game of show. It's not the most flashy or original game, but I love a good rhythm game, Final Fantasy music, and the first Theatrhythm. The staggering amount of songs in the base game has me eagerly awaiting to tapping my touchscreen (or buttons) to the beat of great music.

Splatoon by a mile. I'm glad to see many of the classics like StarFox and Zelda, but Splatoon looks like a very promising new IP for Nintendo.

For Wii U- I'm actually going to have to give this one to Devil's Third. I know it sort of snuck under the radar and it does look hyper-violent and a bit under-powered in the graphics department, but I was listening to the stellar Treehouse coverage and heard about the lore and mythology behind the character and music design, as well as more details about the oddly appealing multiplayer aspects, and it won me over in that time. What impresses me is the fact that Nintendo has chosen to work with another developer on a mature title for exclusivity on Wii U- sure, it doesn't have the (slightly) wider appeal of Bayonetta 2, but it is an original IP and a very different type of title for Nintendo to publish. They're really pushing to make the Wii U's library as varied and rich as they possibly can, and even though Devil's Third looks quite thuggish, it has a very charming and sweet underlying message and effort.

For 3DS, it is Code Name: Steam. I have always loved the turn-based strategy genre, but I feel that too many titles have relied on an archaic, board-game gridlocked style of play. Steam seems ambitious and extremely different, and, if balanced well enough, could become a favorite of mine on the under-appreciated handheld.

Hands down Super Smash Bros for 3DS. I was skeptical at first but then saw your footage and I'm convinced it will be one of the best portable games ever made!

I hate to jump on the Smash Bros. train, but between the Mii and Amiibo features plus the fact that it's the only game I actually got to play, it's looking really fantastic.  And beautiful.

Plus, the 3DS version appears to be shaping up to be very interesting, too.  So I'm definitely looking forward to more information.

I don't care that they didn't really show it, the fact that they're making Star Fox beats anything and everyone else as far as I'm concerned.

(Yes, I realize I'm not eligible to win, I'm just excited about Star Fox and John Brooks.)
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.
