The old dog Nintendo had some announcements goin for this years’ E3. The big one I’ll get to, but here’s a small list of Wii games that piqued my interest.
– Legend of Zelda – Skyward Sword
We don’t know too much about this one yet, except that it’s colorful. Looking like Twilight Princess with a Wind Waker cel-shaded scheme, they’ve struck a pleasing to the eye balance. It’s said to use the Wii Motion Plus for swordplay, hopefully we’ll be doing more accurate swings than just waggling. This looks like it’s gonna be fun.
– Donkey Kong Country Returns
I am pumped for this one. Ol skool 2D platforming action…and it looks good doing it. Way to make some Wii graphics look nice, Nintendo.
– Epic Mickey
The video above is 7+ mins., but it should give you an idea of what the game is about. I haven’t got a chance to watch it all myself, save for a few game play clips. Looks like Mickey Mouse’s own game set in different episodes of his career. Steamboat is particularly interesting. And it looks great, can’t wait to try it.
Hey kiddo’s, it’s that time of year again. The time where our geeky selves get a taste of what’s on the way in the gaming world. The time where we get all giddy and squeal over cool trailers and the possibility of good games and stuff that should hopefully come out soon. Or get disappointed by it….Wii Music anyone? Ok, sorry Nintendo, that was cheap of me….but seriously….Wii Music?!? WTF were yall thinkin?!? You guys made up for it with Mario Galaxy 2 though, I’m lovin it 🙂 And on the honest side, it’s rare that I get disappointed by something I was blown away by at an E3. Now let’s see, what do I hope is gonna make a showing? Or not. I’m gonna stick to the big 3 on this. Off the domepiece 🙂
+ Halo Reach baby! Sure, multiplayer is cool for cats that are into it, but I wanna see some of that campaign. Since it’s supposed to be out in the fall, I don’t think an awesome trailer is outta the question.
+ Gears of War 3. This ain’t due till April of next year, but give us a taste MS. For realz.
+ Fable III. Yeah, I know I gotta get on part 2 and finish that jawn. But the possibilities of being a king and affecting the world around you, depending on your rule style? Should be interesting.
– Project Natal. Yeah, we’ve went over the cool possibilities of this, so far, unnamed, contraption. But I’m really not interested. After being burned by the Wii, I just don’t give a damn about motion control stuff too much. Besides, I don’t have the space to jump around my room just to do something a button press can accomplish…..Make me eat my words MS.
+ The Last Guardian. We’ve put up trailers and all that good stuff….just don’t know when it’s due. I’m praying for a fall release, c’mon Sony. Make it happen!…Or take your time till it’s right, I don’t want a broken game LOL.
+ Killzone 3. This just got announced. Won’t drop till next year, but I loved 2. It has it’s flaws though. Hopefully 3 is a smoother experience.
+ A new Jak & Daxter. This is just outta thin air, not even a hint if it’s being made, but those games were awesome on the PS2. The guys behind the awesome Uncharted games made them, so c’mon. Take what you learned there, and apply it here, should be good.
– Playstation Move. Like the Wii, but supposed to be better. See above. I know you guys want some of that soccer mom/senior citizen money that Nintendo gets, but stick to what you’re good at. Motion controls?…..zzzzzzz
+ New Zelda. Show me something that’s gonna excite me. I know I’m in the minority here, but the 3d Zelda’s just don’t do it for me….and Twilight Princess? Puts me to sleep man. I’m hoping for something awesome.
+ New console. No I don’t want a new Microsoft or Sony system yet. But Nintendo? Just gimme something that smooths out jaggies and displays in HD. Mario Galaxy 2 looks great, but it can look AMAZING. And make sure it’s cheap too!
– Vitality sensor? Add that to the list of peripherals I don’t care about. Who knows. Maybe they’ll do something cool with it *snicker*
3rd Party Stuff
+ Dead Space 2. I loved the first game. It looked gorgeous, sounded incredible, and really brought the creeps.
+ New Silent Hill. Konami announced a part 2 reboot. I guess sort of like they did with the last game. Which I thought kinda sucked…but this one’s in another developer’s hands. I’m hoping for the best.
+ Rock Band 3. I used to be nuts about the music genre. But the endless Guitar Heros and band specific games just made it boring. Maybe Harmonix will give us something to be excited about again….and I can dust off my plastic guitars 🙂
Surprisingly dropping on May 23rd, here’s a new trailer for, umm…the game in the post title 🙂 Surprising cuz Nintendo usually saves these big games for the holiday season. But this year’s game releases are following a new pattern altogether. Anyways, it looks like Mario Galaxy-The Lost Levels…I think that’s how Nintendo described it when it was first announced. I dunno yall, my Partner-N-Crime and I were pretty excited for this…now I’m not sure, I think NSMBW left a bad taste behind. Hopefully this will be as fun and smile inducing as the first one.
Kotaku posted some screens from the new madden ’10 game. I just have to say that I really dont care about this franchise anymore. That’s just me. I’ve been playing it for a LONG time and taking away features to bring it back does not denote new gameplay (looking square at the hall of fame players subtraction and addition). This is such a beat argument I’m going to save that for the guys who know their stuff better than myself. Just sayin’ k? The screens look great. Boy do I love this gen’s console graphics we still have a ways to go with the grass but, eve’s. Posting a screen of Carson Palmer of the Cincinnati Bengals because this is MY blog people.
I’m going to tread really lightly with our Little Multimedia/Video Game Blog and Podcast hosting this Mp3. We don’t want any trouble. So this may disappear one day because we choose to delete it or our host WordPress comes down with the ban-hammer. There’s nothing can be done about that and we would gladly abide by their decision if they do. <3. I’m going to post the Mp3 we have of Play him off The keyboard cat. Use it for your ringtones or whatever. Much love goes out to the Originator of the Idea.

Nintendo put out a release today. The wii sports game we’re ok with passing on but the motion plus? 19.99? Hm. I’d rather have a 10$ price point and spend 20$ total for my 2 remotes. Considering I already paid 250 for all of this. It’s not unexpected, anyways. It’s out there in stores soon enough!!
