The Official Nintendo E3 2013 Thread

I bought a Wii U in March, but now I kind of wish I had waited. The whole thing seems like a flashback to the 3ds situation with a lack of games early on. I wanted something to get excited about this year while waiting for the next gen launch, I guess Pikmin 3 is it for me? The 3ds seems to be doing okay now, hopefully the Wii U situation improves similarly.

I want to want a Wii U. I really do. I'm just having a hard time justifying the purchase with the lack of games and no price drop.

Poor Yoshi. Those new eggs look like they hurt.

I was not at all surprised by Nintendo's inability to even stream their conference properly, much less show me something new or exciting.

Well, it clearly seems like I didn't miss anything this morning.

When they showed Megaman I was all like "come on, Nintendo! This was seen from miles away!"

Then they showed gameplay and almost all of his animations were of the NES sprite behavior.

My heart grew three sizes today and they sold me on buying the new Smash Bros. GG Nintendo.

I thought the direct was okay. Would have liked to see some more stuff but I'm still holding out on the hope that we'll still see one or two things later on.

I really don't see anything new or surprising coming. They sort of blew it.

No way do they reveal anything super surprising.

Ugh, this was really disappointing.

I'll pick up a couple games for my 3DS (Pokemon Y, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Super Smash Bros.), but Nintendo did absolutely nothing that would interest me in the WiiU or really announce anything I would want for my 3DS that I didn't already know about.

Also, FAIRY TYPES? Come on!

Not done with the video, but 3D world looks really fun. Cat Mario seems like an awesome addition (as lame as the name is). Also pokemon X looks good as well. Hopefully the inclusion of pikachu and charizard in the trailer means we don't have to undertake difficult tasks before we can get to them. The addition of a new type that is strong against dragon seems smart. Why am I talking about pokemon so seriously?

Just watching Sonic Lost World for Wii U and damn that looks so much better than the Mario stuff we have seen today from Nintendo. Really cool.

As always, I'm worried about when Sonic slows down. Everyone knows Sonic is best when he's moving!

Yeah but they also showed such a level at then end. It looked really fun way more than the Mario 3D game for my taste at least.

Definitely! (In my opinion) Why not make the whole game at that second level speed though?

One of the reasons I love Brawl modding.

Wii Fit Trainer is OP.

@crispy4001: It is uncanny how similar those two stages are. I wonder if the Wiiu one will stop on different places like Delfino plaza or just hover around like Skyloft in Project M.

Reggie was too scared to attend this years E3. He had an insider tip by the Chinese Secret Service that Jack Tretton was gonna straight up murder fools.

Reggie got scared.

Awesome choice for banner, creativity without a sarcasm/funny angle is rare on the interwebs.
