I went with 3, but now I think I should have gone with 4. It was a bit of a mixed bag.

I love the new look for Zelda, don't doubt it will be brilliant-but that demo was awkward and messy because of technical issues. It dampened my excitement considerably, I was hoping for a great demonstration of the controls. I was also hoping to see more varied areas of the game, and can't deny I'm disappointed it will be 2011. It's going to be a long wait. Kirby looks fantastic, Metroid and Donkey Kong are must haves for me and Goldeneye and Epic Mickey were great examples of good third party support. The lack of Xenoblade and Last Story was also disappointing.

Mario Sports Mix didn't do much for me. Wii Party I was actually pretty interested in. Golden Sun I was very excited about.

3DS-the machine looks fantastic. Kid Icarus gave me goosebumps. I missed the video after that because my feed failed. I was disappointed they didn't confirm more games, really. I believe the potential of the device is great, and am hopeful more games will emerge from the show floor. 

Not sure what to think right now. I think show floor impressions will enthuse me more. It's all about how these games and devices play, after all.

Wow. I was expecting nothing out of nintendo, and then they come and show every game i could ever dream of. Here I was planning on getting a 360 but now, it's just more games for my wii



It's nice to see I wasn't the only one moved by the Donkey Kong presentation.

i am actually quite disappoint. zelda 2011 and it's cellshaded :(

and 3ds it's a DS with a psp nudge and 3d capability i hope the kh they are making for it it's good though.

it was a 4 for me, just because the trailer.



3.5/5 for me -- it was good until Nintendo went and ended the actual press conference 45 mins early, i was expecting more 3DS games to be announced. Also i expected the 3DS to have a larger screen 3.5" is kinda small -- even the PSP has a 4.3" screen...

I mean bar the tech issues with Zelda demo (hopefully not the game and just the stage as we'll find out later) it really was an impressive show.  Lots of new announcements, lots of games shown, and shown for all kinds.  3DS was a great showing, but once again didn't get to see anything on it.  But showed off a great trailer and epic 3rd party support.  Beats the hell out of the support that Kinect was getting haha.  

Overall, show flowed well, had no boring parts, brought the surprises, and of course brought the Zelda.  4/5.  Definitely was a better show than MS's and now we wait for Sony.  



thought it was pretty good - there were a decent amount of wii games that I am interested...however, I'm not a big handheld gamer so while I thought the 3ds looked great and the games looked great as well I most likely won't be purchasing one

 

no Pikmin 3 for wii shown

no Kid Icarus for wii

no star fox wii

bummed out about not hearing anything about those games, but still it was a very good show

Project Sora which is a new Kid Icarus game.

Pretty good looking for a DS game, Based on the internet trailer though the graphics are still not as good as PSP IMO. But damn good.

Any more 3D stuff? I have an idea of how it works and what it looks like but am curious if they talked about specifics...

Wahts the 3d screen resolution? Can adjust the screen to enhance the resolution or turn it off.

Will it play movies? Yes, and some in 3D!

What media formats will 3DS accept? N/A

Backwards compatible in 3D with older DS games? N/A

Stuff like that...

Can we declare it the best conference ever??


No, it was good but it wasn't that good. Especially with the poor Zelda showing.

They confirmed 3D movies and named a few titles but not much more than that. Top screen is 3D and wide screen, fairly good size. Bottom screen is the same old touch screen it seems. Looks very similar to the DSlite but seems to be an analogue nub [bigger than PSP's] where the D-Pad used to be. Under that is a D-Pad. We'll probably have to wait a while for more details.
