I don't really necessarily want much from E3, most of my dream games either have already been made or in the process of being made. However I hope that Nintendo teams up with GANBARION again to produce another original action-rpg for either 3ds or wii u. I just finished Pandora's Tower on virtual console and it is truly a masterpiece (if you'll pardon the pun). It is difficult to describe why it clicked with me without writing an essay, but what I can say is that in my opinion it succeeds where Metroid Prime fails in terms of world building. It beats Zelda any day of the week in terms of combat and 3rd person RPG elements. In terms of story while it's certainly not Xenoblade Chronicles, it is in the top percentage of Nintendo games (or at least co-developed games) where the developers actually tried to create a compelling story. Compared to your average Mario/Metroid/Zelda which have none existent plot for 95% of the game, not that there's anything wrong with that but it's a nice change of pace for once. So yeah, just do that again but not a direct sequel pls.


Wii Fit U was a mistake, it's nothing but trash.... probably... I wouldn't know.

For a game out in just 1 week this is unacceptable.

Gamecube had not one but two awesome almost-fully-featured 3D Pokemon games and it did nothing for it. I'm sure they could move some units if they put some effort into the marketing, but why bother when you can release it on handhelds and sell 10 million copies overnight?


My bet is Gamefreak is struggling with the woes of 240p development and won't have another main game untill 2016.

Etrian Mystery Dungeon was received very well so hopefully they have learnt from the mistakes that were made with Gates To Infinity.

1232
Wait you want them to promote their current games which NEED attention? In that case the line up would be;
1). Code Name S.T.E.A.M : Lincoln Vs Aliens
2). Code Name S.T.E.A.M : Lincoln vs Aliens
3). Code Name S.T.E.A.M : Lincoln vs Aliens


With the grand final being a head to head of the upcoming unannounced hotly anticipated virtual console release of Disaster : Day of Crisis.

It is important to also note that staves and consumables will apparently still be limited, so there won't be any infinite warping shenanigans.

The common theories for why we don't get demos are that early E3 demos run on dev kits and could potentially brick systems, limiting it improves their relationship with best buy and the demos can be datamined for spoilers. Although they could atleast throw us a bone, something like Project Giant Robot would have been a nifty little toy to mess around with since it's not really a proper game yet so they don't stand to lose anything by giving it out for free.


Shower thought, what if Giant Robot is the spiritual successor to Chibi Robo and is 2015's big holiday title, you never know with Miyamoto he's as unpredictable as radioactive decay.

I felt both using just motion controls or just the right stick was clunky, but the most organic way to play Splatoon was the combination of both, depending on the situation it allows for either wide or precise movements and just felt great in my opinion.

The Ruby/Sapphire remakes actually sold 10 Million copies which is crazy when you think about it. I got the game myself and haven't properly sunk my teeth into it yet, maybe I'm part of the problem...

As for Jonny's career wide crusade to turn Pokemon into Final Fantasy, I would actually recommend the DS mystery dungeon games. As James said in his very original review the story and presentation is shockingly good and despite the somewhat tedious gameplay there is something mysteriously addictive about it.

I'm starting to get the feeling that Zelda "will" be there in spite what Nintendo has said. Something tells me the winds are blowing in a new direction. Unless what ever new announced game are also open world type games then yeah Zelda will be there.
I think the methodology behind Zelda is that they don't want to overshadow their other announcements with a game that won't be out for another year and a half. A good conference is like a fruit smoothie, say Star Fox is a kiwi, Animal Crossing is a peach and Metroid is a mango. Whereas Zelda (in the eyes of the media and in terms of general mind share) is a watermelon, yes you now have more fruit but the component sum of it's parts are now smaller by comparison.


In 2016 Wii U development will be winding down so there will be naturally less Wii U software with them moving onto the NX or even the hypothetical MX, so why not save your big watermelon blowout for when times are tough and you need it most? For example does anyone remember which games/features were announced during the 2014 games awards?

1237
Awesome! Square Enix moved their conference so that it doesn't clash. I am now most looking forward to watching Xenoblade/ SMTXFE and Deus Ex/Just Cause live rather than after the fact.

My prediction for today is that the account system will not show up at E3 since Iwata has hinted at such. Although even when the system does come out you will still have to pay for Super Mario Brothers again on the NX.

Just pointing out a typo in the headline: "Relase" vs. "Release"
Oh my how ironic for an article about releasing unfinished products  :P:

Games weren't perfect before patches, they can be a force for good if they aren't abused and Nintendo are by no means above releasing unfinished games (Wind Waker anyone?). Smash Brothers Melee had balance "patches" between each release but due to technology they couldn't be applied to each territory, Majoras Mask had a "patch" in the form of owl statues but only for the West, Fire Emblem for Gamecube had been "patched" to inculde higher difficulties, Fatal Frame 2 had a game breaking bug and subsequently was never released in the US, Metroid Other M had game breaking bugs, Skyward Sword had game breaking bugs.


X/Y, Smash Bros and Tropical Freeze also had game breaking bugs but this time round they were able to be fixed in a way that didn't involve sending your SD card to Nintendo.

I spent more time playing the mini games than I did playing the main game in New Super Mario Bros. It also featured the worst save system I have ever encountered in a video game.

1241
The idea of World Championships is to get the biggest high score and not to compete against others directly, so I can't see Splatoon working very well. My proposal is Pikmin, it has a high skill ceiling requiring both strategy and dexterity.

I think the issue is Nintendo airs just before the show floor opens so they couldn't move back, and there are twice as many conferences this year so Square Enix couldn't move forward. Although I can't think of any reason why Square's announcements couldn't just be made during Sony's conference like they used to be.

1243
I was reading GAF early in the morning and couldn't work out why someone would necrobump such an old thread. Then I started counting 5, 6, 7 ... 8!? Why Square Enix, why do you torture me so?

« on: May 12, 2015, 12:44:57 PM »
Not necessarily in terms of announcements but just in terms of raw presentation last years E3 was easily the best one they've done by a country mile. The event it's self was well paced (relative to the other conferences in 2014) and being prerecorded allowed for higher production values than a stage show (Robot Chicken, Reggie Fils Anime, Wool Shop, Aonuma and Koei Tecmo sitting down to discuss Zelda over tea, Zelda appearing at the click of Aonuma's fingers, the splatoon aquarium) as well as being aired simultaneously in multiple different languages with the choice between subs or dubs in the case of English. Then there were the other 3 prongs being the public demos, the daily live stream and the tournament.


As for Punch-Out I don't think this is a tease since I recognise the outfit from the "Smash September Training Montage" video. Implying it's NOA's generic training outfit prop rather than Little Mac's. Although it could go either way at this point.

So long as you aren't too far away from the low point it is feasible to get out and manually push yourself back to Kerbal.

Animal Crossing is a safe bet since we've already seen the character models in that peculiar plaza application, and New Leaf is on something like 9 million sales so they'd be crazy not to do a Wii U installment.

Oh and Mario Maker which I think is their big holiday title.(albeit a weak holiday title).



Mario Maker has a confirmed (post Zelda delay announcement) release date of September so that isn't the holiday title. My guess would be the ol' JRPG 1 2 of Xenoblade for the West and #FE for the East. Or it could be Iwata's teased unannounced game to be released in the fiscal year ending March 2016.

Just finished playing, initially I was fighting the controls and couldn't get my head around using two input methods to do the same thing, although by the end I came round to it. The balance seems good, ideally you would want a mixture of classes but as you have to leave the lobby to change weapons it is impossible to co-ordinate. The sniper is mostly an offensive weapon as enemies don't travel very fast in human form making them easy targets. The roller on the other hand is suited to taking enemy territory with the other weapons somewhere in between. In terms of match making I got quite a few error messages "Can't connect to partners device" although once inside a game I experienced zero latency as far as I could tell. Overall I felt the core was fun with the lack of map variety being it's downfall, at the moment it's a game I wouldn't want to buy at launch although I will stick around for the 3rd demo and see how I feel about it then.

I like how the content will be spaced out over a period of time to keep you coming back although I am not a fan of the amiibo. If it were all the challenges, all the costumes and that sweet rhythm game locked behind a single readily stocked amiibo that would be reasonable considering you also get a collectible figure, but 3! That's way too far, in the UK it is cheaper to buy the game twice than buying all the amiibos.


If the demo fails to seriously impress I won't be buying it.
