Welcome to the E3 2012 Nintendo Press Conference Discussion

Welcome my fellow Giant Bomb comrades! Unless you have been living under a rock trying to avoid the zombie apocalypse that is sweeping the east coast of the United States, you know that E3 2012 is here! Keeping with the tradition, each of the three platform companies along with EA and Ubisoft will be holding press conferences to discuss their company and what they will offer the video game industry presently and in the future. As you know, this will create apocalyptic chaos across the Internet and, more importantly, the Giant Bomb community and forums. In order to help control the madness, we will have an official "sticky" thread for each of the 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 dedicated solely for the general discussion of the Nintendo press conference. What does this mean for you? Well, let me tell you with my patent-pending bullet points!

  • 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 and discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Nintendo press conference will result in the guilty parties (i.e. users like you!) being sent a PM by one of the moderators (pray that yours won't be sent by MB)

Specific Announcements

As with every E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements of games/hardware/devices that you would like to discuss with your fellow comrades in the Giant Bomb community. We all certainly love your ethusiasm (it's what makes Giant Bomb special!), but this thread is only for the general, overal discussion of the Sony press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the specific forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this by ready my fellow mod Marino's E3 2012 and You! thread.

Game Forums

As with specific announcements made at these press conferences, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. We direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums (again, you can read more about this in the aforementioned E3 2012 and You! thread). Again, please do not overload this thread with discussion of individual games. Breaking this rule will, again, result in the guilty parties 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.

If MOTHER FUCKING PIKMIN 3 isn't shown, I say we burn down Nintendo!

Also, on a related note, if they do in fact announce Pikmin 3 for the Wii U, I'm all in on that system. No fucking questions asked.

So far everyone who's come on for a chat on the voice server or joined the mIRC channel has had a good time, including the regulars MattyFTM and Whiskey engineer gpbmike, so I'm letting more people know so they join in on the fun.  
Do you have something against community-run joints? 
#19 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Pikman right out of the gate?

#20 Posted by Totori (559 posts) -

yeah it's called a handheld

#21 Posted by Brodehouse (9370 posts) -

I want Reggie and Jacky T to team up and beat the shit out of Ubisoft's hosts and Don Mattrick. They can leave Riccitello alone because he already looks like someone kicked the shit out of him.

#22 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

Fuck yea, Pikmin 3! :D

#23 Posted by Totori (559 posts) -

How long does it take turn on a tv, 3 seconds?

#24 Edited by Chop (1962 posts) -

Right off the bat. You got me, Nintendo... you fuckers...

#25 Posted by Claude (16251 posts) -

Damn, my butthole just puckered.

#26 Posted by Dalai (6870 posts) -

Pacman 3! YEAH!

#27 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Man this looks good!

Nope, just saying that you sound like robotic PR people!

wait you have to play the wiimote, the numchuck and the wii-u pad?

#30 Posted by Chop (1962 posts) -

I don't think anything at E3 has ever made me as excited as this. Feels like I've been waiting a million years for this <3

#31 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

Hahahaha, that's awesome.

#32 Posted by Cloudenvy (5890 posts) -

Also; Pikmin looks super dope!

MY BODY IS READY REGGIE.

#35 Posted by EvilTwin (3324 posts) -

It changes your life, man.

#36 Edited by Chop (1962 posts) -

Amazon Video? Of course.

Reggie is king. Between this and Sony, it makes me realize that Microsoft has really got to get a stronger presenter. It really does add to the whole thing when you got awesome guys spitting game up there.

@Totori

No. It has multiple control schemes.

#39 Posted by Totori (559 posts) -

2 pads!!

#40 Posted by EvilTwin (3324 posts) -

Only two?  Is that really a victory?  I guess people were worried about only one.

#41 Posted by Dalai (6870 posts) -

Two controllers! Well that sold about 50 million more consoles.

#42 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

Two gamepads, awesome.

#43 Posted by Chop (1962 posts) -

"Just the like NES, it will support TWO game pads."

*Crowd cheer*

/facepalm

2 of the tabletpad thingies or a tablet pad thingie + a pro controller? I kind of zoned out for a second

#45 Edited by Chop (1962 posts) -

Looks like they mashed a game gear and 3ds into one and called it a controller.

#46 Posted by Cloudenvy (5890 posts) -

It really needed the two gamepad thingy, good to hear.

#47 Edited by SJSchmidt93 (4874 posts) -

"we are only going to talk about the games on Wii U"

spends 10+ minutes not talking about the games

#48 Posted by Totori (559 posts) -

You draw the penis!

#49 Posted by fazzle (289 posts) -

Those other 22 games are going to be shown in a 3 minute montage at the end, aren't they?
