  1. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    Most people don't care that it's a trade show. They watch it for the next new hardware announcement, game announcements, trailers. It's the Mecca of showcasing games. I too didn't watch any of the Treehouse Live. You say Nintendo are trying to get away from E3 being the centre piece, I guarantee they'll be there next year with a live conference with all the fanfare doing what Sony and Microsoft do annually and what Nintendo used to do too. Nintendo have avoided the live shows because well imagine their Direct was live, can picture the reaction in say the Kodak theatre?
  2. Splatoon

    Splatoon's first North American Splatfest planned for this weekend has been cancelled. There was problems with matchmaking on the Japanese version so now it's on hold for the time being. Also, Bluefin Depot goes live in less than five.
  3. You can use the Wii remote to play this game but not with motion controls. http://www.gameinformer.com/games/mario_tennis_ultra_smash/b/wii_u/archive/2015/06/19/hands-on-mario-tennis-ultra-smash-e3-2015.aspx The bizarre decisions just keep coming.
  4. amiibo (NFC)

    “At this time, Turbo Charge Donkey Kong and Hammer Slam Bowser will be sold via the Nintendo starter packs only, as we wanted to avoid having consumers confused at retail thinking that they are playable on other platforms, as they are exclusive to Nintendo platforms.” – Activision Representative
  5. I wouldn't be against keeping the gamepad either. Nintendo could get into a cycle where they bring out their consoles a year or two after the competition. That way they know what the competitions specs are and can trump them, the parts will be cheaper. they could see out the remaining 2 years supporting it the way they supported Wii U in the first 2 years, they should have a large userbase by then so 1st party software sales might be enough to sustain them. And there's always some developers that are late in moving onto the next generation so they could keep a bit of third party support going a little while longer. Whatever the NX is, it has to at least match PS4and XBOX1, otherwise there's no point.
  6. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    I think there needs to be a change but it could make things worse if the right decisions aren't made. Miyamoto has too much control in EAD. Do we him to take up a new pastime for us to get a new franchise(gardening and Pikmin, swimming and underwater Super Mario levels) or more of his childhood memories(Zelda and Starfox)? He's not what he used to be and is his tight grip preventing young would be Miyamoto's from flourishing?
  7. Wii U General Discussion

    Just a portion of a massive interview with Miyamoto. http://www.npr.org/sections/alltechconsidered/2015/06/19/415568892/q-a-shigeru-miyamoto-on-the-origins-of-nintendos-famous-characters
  8. Rodea: The Sky Soldier

    Rodea The Sky Soldier English Version Direct Feed (E3 2015)
  9. That doesn't sound right. I think someone asked for it but I don't believe it was Gearbox. I think it was Activision. They should have added analogue triggers. And Wii U needed a stand alone controller rather than forcing new adopters to the Wii family buying a Wii remote and a Pro controller along with the inconvenience of being tethered. Plus it added features like the clickable analogue sticks.
  10. Yoshi's Woolly World (June 26th)

    It's mainly in France supposedly. So it shouldn't affect UK and Irish orders hopefully.
  11. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    You're wasting your time.
  12. Devils Third

    European boxart.
  13. Hyrule Warriors

    Hyrule Warriors – first screenshots of Tetra and King of Red Lions on Wii U More here: http://nintendoeverything.com/hyrule-warriors-first-screenshots-of-tetra-and-king-of-red-lions-on-wii-u/
  14. I think it was delayed a year and even when it was ready it was held back again to launch simultaneously on both the Gamecube and Wii.
  15. I meant how it translates.
  16. Star Fox Zero

    The game should go for as nice as possible graphics. The Wii U's not limited like the SNES was.
  17. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    I was looking back at the Gamecube and Wii at the same point in their life cycle and the games that were revealed at E3. The Gamecube had Metroid Prime 2, Resident Evil 4 and Twilight Princess. The Wii had New Super Mario Bros., Mario Galaxy 2 and Sin & Punishment 2. There were other titles on the platforms like Wii Fit Plus, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, Viewtiful Joe 2 and Wii Sports Resort amongst others.
  18. Wii U General Discussion

    I'd have more respect if they were honest instead of all the lies. I'm sick of the BS. As a result over the years I've come to hate Reggie and I believe very little they say anymore. But yes I can understand it's part of his job.
  19. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem and Zelda I think are all we know of coming in 2016. I doubt they'll be out in the first half let alone the first quarter. I said NX was the new console and would be out in 2016. I said over a year ago that there would be a new console by next year. I said before the Wii U launched that it would bomb. And got derided at every turn. Well I wasn't wrong. The NX will be out next year and worldwide.
  20. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    There's 16 categories they qualified for, taking away the console specific categories and they only got nominated in 3. And the competition have 10+ entries in the best game and best trailer sections. Awful stuff. Xenoblade Chronicles X does that not deserve some love? Or has the hype died after being around for the past 2 and a half years?
  21. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    [TWEET]611620193815654400[/TWEET] Basically 4 nominations.
  22. Star Fox Zero

    COMPARISON: *StarFox Zero* VS *StarFox 64 3D* / *Sector Alpha* VS *Sector Y*
  23. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    I very much doubt that. Since I've been back I've observed many from a distance, with you at the heart of many of them.

    You don't have to make it so you know.
