Haha, he probably did.

Also, third party games. Half Life 3...DS? There is no way in hell but how fucking hilarious would that be?

Two non-dancing games in a row? I think that's a record for this E3.

Mickey looks like the old Disney games with Ariel on the PC. Nostalgia might hit, especially with the paint.

Oh great, now I have to help people to level up. :/ Mario Papier.

Conference is extremely predictable!

yeah this stuff should all have been in the main conference. I know they wanted to concentrate on the wii U but they clearly didn't have enough.

Paper Mario! this is enjoyable! not an emotion I have yet felt at E3

hmm...I'm liking the trailers and everything but something that we don't already know about would be nice.

Threediots looks like the dumbest thing I've seen in a while.

We've learned nothing new, this was just a reiteration of coverage seen before the show.

That was great until I realized they wouldn't show a single new thing, oh well, some of the games look great.

It's amazing that one of Nintendo's biggest reveals of E3 software-wise wasn't even announced at any of the conferences or displayed on the show floor.

@Hailinel: You said it! It's incredible, I don't understand how none even talked about this. It seems to me pressure is getting to Nintendo of North-America executives. Is Reggie stressed? He looks lost most of the time, and his uneasy subordinate was making the conference awkward.

Regarding the Nintendo Press conference (not the 3DS-focused separate conference)- Did we all just see a different conference? What was Nintendo thinking? I was in absolute disbelief that almost literally nothing came out of that conference. Oh boy, starting off with Pikmin 3, that must mean we're in for a good ride! Dear lord, were my expectations shattered when it ended on Nintendoland and everyone was still in their seats as if to say, "that's it?!?!"  
 
Their conference was absolutely abysmal, and it's even more salt in the wound to find that games like ZombiU, Assassin's Creed 3, and P-100 were being shown outside of the conference. Why was that not shown at the actual press conference? That entire press conference was bullshit, they were basically showing stuff to an audience that did not exist in the crowd, and an audience that did not exist anymore. Casual gamers are basically done with anything new, they got their Wii, and they got out with games like Just Dance 3 and Wii Fit. They're not going to go buy another console for the same things to play "Wii Bum-Slider" and "Elderly Waitress Simulator".  
 
Show the core what you've got, Nintendo.
