    A number of pleasant surprises here, really happy to see Panzer Dragoon, NMH3, and Banjo-Kazooie in Smash finally. Astral Chain and Daemon X Machina still looking amazing. And CDPR with the "hold my beer" moment porting Witcher 3 to Switch, shows that just about any modern game can work on the console. Some devs/publishers are simply too lazy to put in the effort.

    Nothing to do with being lazy why should they put in extra effort when ther already prob doing 16 hour shifts - as said before nintendo the ones who should put in the effort and release a machine tht is on par with others and dont rely on inferior ports

    CDPR does not overwork their employees, so clearly it's possible to make Switch ports without doing so. You can't blame any one console for that, it's just pure greed driving those decisions. Chinese companies in particular expect that kind of disregard for work-life balance from their employees, so avoid supporting Tencent or anybody underneath them. That means Epic Games and Riot Games.

    Were YOU disappointed?
    From recent memory, this probably is the best E3 conference/direct of the past decade. I can list 16+ games that will be available for the Switch that I would like to play. I haven't been able to do that in a loooooooong time.

    I've been debating whether or not to buy collection of mana. I might only get it for secret of mana. the fact that trials of mana is getting a remake in like a year might make that game not worth playing in the collection.

    I cannot post anywhere else so posting here. Is there a tutorial to use an arcade cabinet and put the nes mini ($60) with 30 installed games? Thanks

    I just erased everything that was known to me from various leaks and confirmations from Nintendo’s partners.

    While the animal crossing stuff is new to me too, it’s a revamp of the camping mobile game. I don’t see myself buying it.

    Of things shown, I am only partially interested in Luigi’s mansion. Haven’t played a Luigi focused game since Mario is missing.

    3 houses, I need more information for. Is the game now an action rpg or is the formula staying the same? Can’t tell from e3 trailers.

    Only buying for certain of the games shown, link’s reawakening and Mario makes 2.

    I don’t understand how anyone can say this was the best direct in years. Far from it imo. Next gen may be the first tell in my entire life that I won’t own a Nintendo console and a PlayStation. The current gen has killed my interest in owning all 3. too Many disappointments from all 3!

    You're all focusing on the E3 press conferences of these big corporations, and you've forgotten about the one titan who's taken the entire internet by storm, time and time again, year after year...

    I voted "Great". Link's awakening has a different style than I'd expected, but I'll gladly take it. :bow:

    And witcher 3 on switch? I think I put it up on a wish list as a joke, assuming it'll never make it. Glad to be proven wrong. :)


    I can truly understand the hype for breath of the wild sequel, but...it's not my favorite Zelda either. For me (again: for me) the draw of Zelda is in the interesting design of dungeons and the use of hard acquired weapons to gradually explore the world. BotW's open world is nice, but simply isn't my cup of tea.

    Other news was...I would say 'reasonable', but that's also me. What struck me that ninty's gameplay demo's are plain better than the competition. Perhaps it's because I've become more wary of others showcasing interactive movies rather than games, but really: nintendo makes GAMES.

    Secretly, I was sort of hoping for a hardware revision or at least a price drop...but alas. I guess that's my fault as well: that will happen 2 days after I've purchased a switch. :P


    Oh, but really: their presenters still suck, though. There's "Japanese modesty" and there's "nintendo of Japan". While presenting to a Western audience, they really should be more enthousiast IMHO. And it's more than just the language barrier, as it's downplaying what they're saying:

    Nintendo employee, to wife: *in a complete casual, monotone voice* Today, on my way to work, I noticed a burning building. So I stopped, bashed in a blocked door and saved seventeen children and four adults from the fire.
    Wife: *yawn* okay...Good for them, I suppose.

    here comes Zelda breath of the boredom 2 .-.
    meh! i hope they do great dungeons and not stupid boring stuff this time...
    Links Awakening has a strange design, but i ll take that (its clearly the better zelda between those 2... by far!
    theres no footage yet okay.. but if it will have those excuses of dungeons again this zelda will suck!)

    Anyway... no more heroes 3, witcher 3 and luigis mansion 3 will be awsome for sure.

    witcher 3 does not need a lot of resources.. it even runs on a potato meanwhile. I m pretty sure it will look good enough on a small screen.. maybe not on tv but theres plenty of other options to play on a big screen anyway.

    Maybe Astral Chain began Development before Bayo 3 behind the scenes which is why it was finished first

    To the (currently) 27.8% of the voters; What was "incredible" about it?

    I voted "passable"; there was some cool stuff, most of which we already knew about, but on the whole the only surprises (well, they would've been surprises if the rumours hadn't been around since last year) were the previously unannounced localisations and remakes/rereleases.

    None of it was as exciting as the Keanu Reeves Cyberpunk reveal, or the extended footage of FFVII Remake, or even as enjoyable as Devolver Digitals presentation.

    Overall rather nice with the wide variety of software included. Some genres missing. Still not a big fan of shoving crafting/recipes into everything to continue a series, but *shrug*. Luigi's Mansion 3 looks interesting. Maybe Luigi's Mansion 4 can be Dark Souls like. So far of what I've seen, it's been the best press conference.

    Where the buffalo roam.
    I mean Tencent owns or has a stake in every game studio, so that’s literally impossible.

    They have a 40% stake in Epic Games, which owns Fortnite, Rocket League and Dauntless. They own most of Riot Games which owns League of Legends. They have a 5% stake in Ubisoft, which owns......yeah. They have a 5% stake in Activision-Blizzard, which owns Overwatch, every COD game (and completely developed and own the upcoming COD mobile) and much more. They created and own PUBG Mobile. They own Supercell, owner of Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. They are now working with Nintendo to bring the Switch to China. And don’t forget that Tencent has worked with every game studio to bring their games into China, so they indirectly own the Chinese versions of every single game. Tencent is a huge mega billion dollar corporation that no doubt is controlling and profiting off of the games we play. And there’s nothing we can do about it.

    5% is nothing. You only need to avoid companies that they own a majority stake in, or a near-majority.
