The Official E3 2015 Nintendo Press Conference Discussion

It's officially E3 time, duders! If you haven't experienced the insanity of E3 before, the show starts off with press conferences from each of the three console makers as well as a few of the largest publishers in the industry. These presentations are prime real estate for game announcements, debut trailers, live gameplay demonstrations, and meme origins.

In an attempt to keep the E3 shenanigans organized, the mods institute these official discussion threads for each conference so that everybody has a go-to place to discuss them before, during, and after the show.

Keep Discussions On Topic

This thread is exclusively for the general discussion of the Nintendo press conference. Only discussion of the Nintendo press conference is allowed. Discussion involving the other company's conferences should be taken to their respective threads. And don't even think about going off-topic or derailing the thread with the latest scores from your intramural cricket league.

Specific Announcements

No NX? No Zelda? What are we gonna show, guys?!

E3 is THE place for announcing never before seen games. It's exciting, fast-paced stuff and we're all enthusiastic to start talking about all the new toys. But, please keep in-depth discussions about specific games in their respective forums. For more information about how to help us keep things organized, go check out the E3 2015 and You! thread.

To help you get where you need to go to talk about anything announced or shown during this press conference, we have created a list of them right here:

Despite the insanity of E3, keep in mind that the general site rules still apply. So, don't be a dick. If you need a refresher on how to conduct yourself like an upstanding citizen of the Giant Bomb community, check out the FAQ.

Where Can I Watch?

GET HYPE!

Starting Sunday night, we're going to be neck deep into E3 2015 aka The Electronic Entertainment Expo aka The Electronic Three™. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past twenty years, you know that E3 is the biggest trade show for the video game industry. We're gonna see countless new trailers, demos, announcements, interviews, and live streams over the next week or so. What does that mean in relation to you and Giant Bomb? It means there's going to be a tidal wave of new threads created to talk about this stuff and almost as many wiki submissions for new games. That is...unless you follow these simple steps to surviving the forums during E3 that former moderator @citizenkane put together a few years ago.

A lot of what you'll see below should be utilized year-round, but especially during the insanity of E3.

Press Conferences

It's a parking lot now. :(

From Sunday night through Tuesday, you are going to see threads dedicated to each press conference (Bethesda, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, Square Enix, and PC). These threads, including the banner contest winners, will be posted and stickied shortly before each press conference. They are the go-to place for any and all discussion for their respective press conferences before, during, and after the show is over. So, don't go posting a brand new thread each time someone new walks out on stage and says something dumb/funny/insane/amazing. Let's try to keep it all in one place.

Here's the details on when the shows are. The ones on Sunday/Monday will have commentary by Giant Bomb staff streamed in chat. The "Local Time" link translate the time automatically to your local time.

  • Sunday, June 14 @ 7:00 PM PDT - Dolby Theatre (Local Time)

The Forums

We know you want to talk about all these glorious new games that are about to get announced. But, there's no sense in fifty duders creating a new thread to talk about that thing that Adam Boyes just announced 18 seconds ago. And, in case you didn't know, every game in the Giant Bomb database has a forum attached to it. Tidy organization is built right in! All you have to do is utilize it. Did Ubisoft just announce that The Division is played exclusively with laser tag guns? Well, guess where you should start a thread to talk about it? You guessed it.

The idea here is to not clog up the General Discussion. Any thread that is about a specific game should be attached to that game's forum. If a moderator spots your thread about Star Wars: Battlefront’s exclusive pre-order bonus in General, it's going to get moved, so help us out and just start by posting it where it should go.

If you're confused, let's break it down.

...AND THEN...

E3 is fast and furious, so we know there are going to be duplicates, but help us out by taking a few seconds to check first. The dupes that get through will soon be locked anyway.

The Wiki

But...but...but...What if there's no page for the game I want to talk about?!

Well, the answer is pretty simple. Go ahead and make a page for it. Before you do, though, make doubly sure there's not already one created. We have a some hardcore wiki users that are going to be lightning quick on new stuff. Sometimes, when a new page is created, it takes a bit of time to show up in search. Here's a tip for you:

<< !!! THIS PAGE HAS THE MOST RECENTLY ADDED GAMES !!! >>

Even if someone submitted it three seconds ago, it's going to be there. So, use that instead of just checking the search bar. The mods will be monitoring the wiki queue like hawks trying to get the new stuff through as quickly as possible.

CitizenKane's Patented Bullet Points of Recapping

  • An official, pinned thread for each of the eight press conferences.
  • Any topics about individual games should be placed inside their respective games' forums and NOT in General Discussion.
  • Check for already existing threads about what you want to talk about.
  • Topics not in the correct place will be moved by moderators immediately.
  • Any user who continues to post such topics in GD will receive an official warning. So be cool.
  • Follow these simple steps, and have fun. It's E3 time!

Summary

E3 is one of the most fun times of the year for anyone who loves games. It's fast. It's chaotic. It's sometimes ridiculous and/or hilarious. All of us here in the Giant Bomb community want to have a good time with all the news, announcements, trailers, and late-night podcasts. So, let's all do our part to keep things as organized as possible so everyone can find anything they're looking for during E3 2015.

Got questions? Feel free to post them here so that anyone else with the same/similar question can get helped at the same time.

Let's do this!
