Even though I play fewer Nintendo games than ever, I still hold their press conferences on the highest pedestal every E3. It's all up to them at this point.
So far it's been the worst E3 in history. Have no fear Nintendo will rescue the event like they always do.

I'd say the PSmove/Kinect/TV-fueled insanity of the late 2000s, early 2010s of E3s were worse in the way of game announcements, but this one definitely was disappointing.

Well they had at least one game that got me excited so far this year the only thing that I want to play is the Final Fantasy Pixel Remastered games and I have already played and finished other versions of them numerous times.
