I guess I just don't see what was "horrendous" and though posting a video is nice and all it does not really explain your Point of veiw.
I Gues I am Just trying to Understand your Point of Veiw a bit better.
My PoV is simple, show new things. Not things shown yesterday, not things shown at previous E3's, and most certainly not games released already. Keep in mind my stream was cut off during the WB section, but im guessing they were pretty much showing off batman (a game already out), and I left during the Ubi soft bit because I really dont give a shit about SING or whatever the hell they were talking about (my bro who did sit through that crap assured me I didnt miss anything at all).
Of course, I really dont mind much if they show things announced at previous E3s and then show a ton of new details for them. Tomorrows 3ds thing will shed some more light on Luigis mansion and more, which is good considering how little info we have on games like Animal crossing and whatnot.
It was also really disapointing how their big show stopper ending was Miiland....Yeah its new, but its just not interesting to me. So yes, maybe its just me and I dont find assassins creed 3, batman, mii land, and two more new super mario bros (why is it called 2 anyways if its technically the 3rd (or 4th depending on which one comes out first)) the ingredients for the best E3 ever.
It started out really strong with Pikmin 3, giving some much needed info on it and showing it off. Then...it kinda crashed and burned for like 40 minutes until the 3ds section and then it got boring again when that was over.

I won't call it horrendous, but I agree with the sentiment. Granted I watched it with the sound off, being at work and all. I realize it is about what the Wii U can do, but I wanted to see it in action. There were some cool things in it, but I wished they showcased a game that was exclusive to the Wii U that was totally unexpected. What the machine can do is great, but I want to see it in action. Shooting at card board cut outs at an amusement park setting did not do it for me. I love Nintendo's innovation and I think the Wii U has great potential for the future, but after a year of hearing that great games were coming to the Wii U, I wanted to see what the machine could do. At least give me a teaser trailer for the big ones they have coming out at launch or near it. E3 is not over yet and I'm sure we'll hear more about what games are coming, perhaps even seeing some, but they should have showed something original and epic.
All that being said, I'm very much on board with this.
we'l see what the rest of E3 has in store. I'm still holding on to the thin thread of hope for Tri G.
Hmm... Not bad, but pretty lackluster if you ask me. I think the personal highlight of the Nintendo Press Conference for me was seeing Heihachi grab the Super Mushroom in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which I'm excited is on the Wii now. (Guest Character plox?)
Pretty boring E3 overall, unless the aforementioned 3DS conference can spark things up.
Best of show? I don't even own a PS3, but I still have to give that to Beyond: Two Souls. I'd defiantly buy it if I owned a Playstation.
Just watched it, I agree with Chipou, it started out great, with Pikmin 3 being shown and explained but got very dull quickly until the 3DS part, and then got boring once more after it was over. Not very excited for 2 "new" Mario games... Paper Mario Sticker Star (I think they could've worked on the title a bit more) looks neat, but I was really hoping for Metroid, F-zero, Star Fox.... Maybe we'll get some more interesting details at the 3DS conference tomorrow...
Oh right! I knew I was forgetting something. I'd like to give second place to Tombraider, and if I had to pick a third... I don't know? Maybe ZombieU? I've always fantasized about a Zombie game that focused more on survival than killing.
Shoutout to TTT2, and TekkenWiiU, since we didn't really see more than a few seconds of them.
Well, not exactly what I wanted, but I now know three definite purchases: - New Super Mario Bros 3DS - Paper Mario - Luigi's Mansion , and will be potentially buying Castlevania.
In other news, the implications of Pokedex 3D Pro are massive. They'll have fully up to date 3D models of EVERY pokemon. Are you now thinking what I am?
Fire Emblem and MH3G are both already released games. When/if we get FE/MH respectively (FE has been confirmed for release, just no date), I just expect a date, no big expo announcement needed, they aren't showing a NEW game.
With Smash Bros, it was a very, very slim chance of us seeing anything. I was disappointed to have nothing on Zelda though.
Sony.... Showed a lot of games, some pretty good ones but overall there conference was really flashy but no real substance. Not really anything "new" and they didn't seem to do as much as I wanted them to do to boost the vita.
Microsoft... Again more game announcements but not anything spectacularly new overall. They seem like they will be staying the same over the next year which is good for them.
Nintendo.... WiiU had some very interesting games (personally I was most interested in zombie U). The system it's self has a lot of interesting feature but I can see the concerns people have with the control pad design.
3DS..... No MH announced.... That is all.
Out of all the game developers though it seems Ubisoft steped up the most. They probably had the best showing over anyone IMO.
