P.S. What was everybody’s favorite part of the conference? What game release are you looking forward to the most?


  1. I’m going to say that they’re obviously going to throw out some first party game announcements for the Wii U, whether launch titles or not and possibly announcement that come have some Wii U to 3DS stuff going on.

    Ubisoft may (or may not as they’re pretty close with Sony, and have already shown a Wii U montage at their conference) come out and detail some more stuff on Rayman Legends (although that has already been covered too), possibly show some gameplay of their ZombiU or give further details and finally show some of the Wii U exclusive stuff for Assassin’s Creed III; this seems a little unlikely as Sony and Ubisoft have a big partnership going on.

    I’m hoping the Rocksteady guys will come on stage and show off Batman Arkham Asylum (again with it’s ported Wii U improvements/features), SEGA COULD have given some Colonial Marines footage for them to show.

    Then I can see them giving some further details on the Nintendo Network. I don’t really know what else. The usual sales stuff, comments on how innovation and “together, better” are better, together.

    1. Arkham City*

      Also, just general third party announcements are what I want to see.

  2. If we do see any pokemon related WiiU stuff, I really hope to see mention of either a new pokemon snap game using the new controller as well as some AR stuff. Or I’d like to see a new stadium/colosseum/battle rev type game, but this one having the best of all three entries in one.

    Also I hope that the celshade the craps outta both.

  3. Just wondering, would it be unusual for them to announce a pokemon game for the Wii u at E3?

    1. Pokémon Battle Revolution was announced at an E3 in the past. Nothing is impossible 🙂

        1. They could have done SO much more with that game. At least having storyline like the two gamecube games would have made it way better. Tournaments could have been introduced in the online battles, I mean come on. What were they thinking..?

  4. Well……. Nintendo was pretty much a let down.I liked Pikmin 3 tho. Sony won this week in terms of better press conference.

  5. What a Major letdown… Looks like we’ll never get a wii u pokemon rpg game :/

  6. I’ll probably do the same thing I have done in the past… wait for a while and wait for the price to drop as well as some of the game prices.

    Hopefully with time more games will come out (Pokemon), and I’ll get the black Wii U with an additional White controller (or if different colours come out I’ll get that instead)

    Out of the game list here… I guess I’m only excited about Mario (Derp…), Tekken (Me likey fighting games), maybe Pikmin (because of SSBB on the Wii) and that’s about..

    Hopefully the 3DS new will be more interesting…or else Nintendo!

  7. There is absolutely nothing here that interests me. There is nothing about the Wii U or the 3DS that interests me.
    I suppose my videogame playing days are over with Nobunaga’s Ambition.

  8. About the Pokemon Conquest trailer…

    It looks like Kenshin (the guy with Mewtwo) is flipping us off.
