E3 2012: Nintendo Press Conference Live Blog
I guess that’s it… feels a little underwhelming for a system launch debut.
So it’s PlayStation Home but with actual games?
All these words and I just hear minigame collection. Nintedoland will probably still be amazing though.
ZombiU shows some neat, if not entirely predictable applications of the gamepad controller to a normal, core game.
WHERE IS USHER I AM REALLY ANGRY
LEGO City Undercover – Game of the Year, All Years
Wait wait wait. You collect coins? In a MARIO game? Damn Nintendo you crazy.
I’m really enjoying Nintendo’s “Let’s break all the other stuff out into separate videos” presentation.
Well this doesn’t look like DJ Hero at all. This is making my skin crawl but I have friends that would love this. Notably there are a lot of women in this demo video.
Apparently it’ll use a pedometer that you can use to synchronize your exercise away from the game. That’s a neat idea, but I’m still unimpressed.
Trambopoline! I’m still not getting a balance board again.
Did he just say that out loud. Nobody is supposed to know our memes!
IT’S TIME FOR A MAWWWNTAWWWGE
They should make the racecar dog the new main character of the game.
THAT DOG HAS RACECAR FEET.
Scribblenauts on the Wii U! Yes! Yes! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3ALwKeSEYs
So Batman has a super mode in this version of the game. I guess it’s kinda neat that you can selectively detonate gel, but that remote batarang thing is silly. You can do that on the TV already.
Did Batman just whip out his bat-Wii U in game?
And now the third-party pony show commences!
Game is technically five players — four on Wii remotes, one with the gamepad. Fifth player is kind of a bitch though, all they do is throw up blocks.
Mario in HD looks so goddamn weird!
Oh yes, they showed screens from this during the Miiverse preview.
Ooo is it Mario time?
Oh you can add an emoticon to your post? Livejournal functionality confirmed!
Hrm I kinda hoped they wouldn’t eat up time with Miiverse during the conference. They already showed all of this.
So you can plug in headphones and do whatever you want on this thing while someone is doing something ELSE on the TV. Neato.
There’s a headset and charging port on the top. INTERESTING. Also it looks like there are docking ports on the bottom.
I want this voice to narrate everything I do every day.
For saying it’s all about the games, we haven’t seen a game in a while.
Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon Video all listed as supported by Wii U. Not entirely surprising, but nice to hear.
“It’s all about the games.” SOMEONE GETS IT.
Now, to balance out the “vibe” of the event, Reggie will consume a live goat on stage.
Is anyone listening to these words? I am completely charmed by those retarded lookin’ little guys. Aw so cute.
Oh wow, you can control four different captains during a level. That could make puzzles crazy complicated… sort of reminds me of Lost Vikings.
Also — default controls will use the Wii Remote and Nunchuck! That’s very interesting, and shows that Nintendo will NOT shoehorn Wii U controls into every game.
I must have a doll of this rock pikmin. I must.
Aaaaa little rock Pikmins oh god too much adorable.
YEEEEAAA Pikmin! Looks really good… but maybe it’s because I’m used to Nintendo games looking like garbage.
Black tablet front and center. So shiny.
So I’m guessing Pikmin 3 is first up. Holy crap so cute. HE HAS A LEAF IN HIS COAT POCKET.
GOD MIYAMOTO BE LESS ADORABLE
Also I don’t think Nintendo will outdo the announcement of a new Bejeweled game. That’s right you heard it here first.
OH MAH GAWD IT’S A NINTENDO LOGO
