    Sorry if I angered people. I posted this right after the press conference, and I was very disappointed.

    I just don't like where Nintendo is going, okay? Maybe I was spoiled by past E3s, I'm too used to being impressed by awesome games and surprise announcements... Especially in 2006. They gave me something to look forward to. This E3 failed to impress me that way.

    Regardless, I still stand by some of my points. I still think Nintendo should be spending more time creating the games I want to play. This may sound selfish, but it's the truth.

    My original post. Beware: it is flamebait.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It certainly was a little underwhelming. I still see some cool potential in the Wii Motion Plus but I'm not holding my breath. One thing that was awesome about the conference was that song that played at the end. Who was that by?

    What the fuck happened to the "several games aimed at the core gamer" thing that they said a month or so back?

    I sincerely hope they show something else within the next 3 days. But this conference almost bored me to tears. ._.

    I expected more core games. All the games they showed were gimicky and aimed to casual gamers.

    I was expecting New Mario World WiiWare for some reason but they seemed to completely forget about WiiWare.

    Of course last year the Links Crossbow Challenge was shown after so perhaps there could be something, though hopefully nothing as mediocre as that game.

    I agree. No kid icarus and golden sun 3, and everthing else, and the wii sports resort, and music both looked like shit. I mean, wth wants to play frisbee, and music was just random tapping of buttons or swinging your arms around. Nothing like playing the sax at all. The drums was more realistic, but seriously, the guy was waaaay off beat for a professional. Anyone else think that animal crossing wii looked like a ds game? I thought it was at first.

    At least, gta will be coming to the ds! Also, the hint at the end of the show was stupid. Will they or will they not unveil a new system [​IMG]

    Yea, i was checking out a live blog on Kotaku for this. When they said "It's Done." i was waiting around till after the credits for that badass nerd payoff... that didn't happen. Can't believe Nintendo pulled the blue-ball so hard this year. Well, i'm still interested to see if anything pops up about this smaller DS. Here's to hoping! [​IMG]

    Remember them saying something at the beginning of the conference about a new Mario and Zelda game coming to the wii, so at least it wasn't a complete failure. Although they did fail to mention anything about those new games >

    What the hell was that???!! No new Zelda No new Mario (not even a other crappy Mario sport game!!) No new noting well a other Wii Sport that shows what the wii can do.... But when they will use it in a real game??? And really Wii Music I will not buy that crap.

    Nintendo get a clue I hate sport in real life and I do hate sport base games even when it got Mario in the title.

    Look like Nintendo forgot about there core fans that where there from the first days..... This was all crap

    Brawl was shown last year after the media briefing so it's not all hopeless for us gamers yet.
