Today is the big day for the Nintendo E3. We have our unannounced annual state review today plus the owner here all day so there isn't a chance I'll get to watch the Digital Event live. Bah.
But I'll be sending good thoughts. Enjoy guys!
And to Nintendo, in the immortal words of RuPaul: "Good luck... and don't fuck it up!"
Thanks for puttin on the shiow yall! Wish I coulda stayed longer, but the stream cost me nearly a gig of data for ~1 hr of viewing... and I only have 1 gig of data in my plan per month... wa wa waaaaaaaa.....
So I stayed till around the big Z reveals and the yoshi yarn... did I miss anything big?
Those were some awesome announcements!! Nintendo really brought it this E3!!! Aside from Zelda (which probably was the most awesome thing I've ever seen in my entire life, and I almost cry when I saw it), I was pleasantly surprised by Splatoon. It just really seems like a really cool concept that takes mechanics from your typical 3rd person shooters but adds some neat new ideas that make for a fun experience. Particularly I found the best thing to be the fact that this game seems to focused heavily on the online mode, since it's a 4v4 kind of game; and you don't see Nintendo focus on online this much that often.
I've seen several websites talking about how Zelda is "going open world". I'm like motherfucker it's only not been open world once, if by open world you meant large overworld where you can go anywhere you want, and that was in Skyward Sword, more or less.
