Welcome to the E3 2011 Nintendo Press Conference Discussion!

Hello my fellow Giant Bomb-ers! Unless you have been kidnapped by pirates with no TV, phone or Internet access, you know that E3 2011 is upon us. Going with tradition, each of the major three platform companies along with a few of the biggest publishers will be giving press conferences to discuss the past, present and future of their company and the video game industry as a whole. To make the Giant Bomb community more orderly and easier to navigate, we have created an official "sticky" thread for each of the press conferences. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of everyone's general feelings/opinions/thoughts of the Nintendo press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is solely for the general discussion of the Nintendo press conference. What does this mean? Well...

  • Only discussion of the Nintendo press conference is allowed. Please keep discussion of the other press conferences in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals? Do so in other threads.

Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Nintendo press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Specific Announcements

Naturally with any E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements that you would like to discuss with your fellow users in the Giant Bomb community. We certainly welcome this enthusiasm and drive. However, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the Nintendo press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this in our E3 2011 and You! thread tutorial.

Game Forums

As with specific announcement, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. Instead, we direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums(again, you can learn more about this in the aforementioned E3 2011 and You! thread). Don't forget, please don't overload the Nintendo forum with discussions of individual games. Breaking either of these rules will also result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Some Nintendo press conference related forums you might want to use:

General Rules & Guidelines

The sequence of punishments for breaking this rules still apply as well.

The most potentially exciting press conference of E3 merely 30 minutes away. I'm glad I didn't sleep through my alarm.

@MattyFTM: Thanks for opening this thread!

Hmm, should I watch the GT stream or GB stream? which looks better?

I do want to see some 3DS support, so that I have a reason to go and purchase one. I would really like to have a reason! I would also like more news from the works of Intelligent Systems (Paper Mario, Fire Emblem).
 
More than anything though, I want to be surprised. And Nintendo has a way of surprising people.

#19 Posted by Khadyn (228 posts) -

I'm pumped to see what Nintendo gives us in their show. Gonna be interesting if Nintendo will pull off the best show this year. Sure, they are pulling out a new console for 2012 but, I'm more interested what they will have for first/third party games to support this new console.

So many hopes and dreams riding on this conference.

#22 Posted by TepidShark (1059 posts) -

Do you think we will see actual games on the new console or just tech demos?

#23 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Darksiders 2 will be a Cafe launch game, Gamespot says.

That would be cool.

I think that they will show some games, probably older games ported, and some tech demos to show the full potential. That's just my opinion

I doubt it'll be hard to top last year avalanche of new stuff, they have a new console to reveal and possibly new games.

I sold my Wii last year and am excited for this conference.

I wasn't excited about this press conference until yesterday when I realised that some serious shit is gonna go down at Nintendo. Who knows what sort of stuff that Nintendo will whip out of the bag for the Wii 2. And, hey, some Skyward Sword action wouldn't be too bad either.

#29 Posted by TepidShark (1059 posts) -

Not Nintendo, but Jack Tretton is on Gametrailers right now.

#30 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Um...Ninja Theory's hinting at something.  DmC might be coming to Cafe as well.

My body is ready for this: STARFOX developed by RETRO STUDIOS Pikmin 3 N6 & 3DS Super Mario 3DS New Wind Waker styled Zelda for 3DS New Smash Mario Kart 3DS Ninja Gaiden 3DS

IF they did a new Wind Waker for the 3DS..that will make me buy a 3DS day of Wind Waker release.

#32 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3055 posts) -

I'm anxious on this one.  After the NGP pricing thing yesterday, I hope Nintendo brought everything they have or this could go very bad.

Here's the queue for it - and look who is standing there, all bold as brass ;)

#34 Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror (2090 posts) -

And after this I have a 3 1/2 hour bombcast to get through. That's what happens when you put together MS, Sony, EA and Ubisoft (euuurgh) in one day.

Agent is still coming! :D

But it might not be exclusive.

How badass would it have been if the conference was next to a train station.

Probably the GT stream.

Oh come on don't tease me like that. I hope they make the controller feel like blood.

#40 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Agent = May not be exclusive to PS3 anymore

#41 Posted by kishinfoulux (2278 posts) -

Reading on Twitter that they may not show any actual gamers. Just conceptual stuff and tech demos. That would be disappointing. :-/

#42 Posted by Jolt92 (1550 posts) -

I'm so fucking pumped. COME ON TIME GO FASTER FOR JUST TEN MINUTES.

#43 Posted by Vexxan (4618 posts) -

Not long until it starts now. This is what I've been waiting for.

Body = ready.
