Gotta say that this is going to be one of my favorite E3 conferences of all time.
I don't even consider the cringe-worthy demonstration of Skyward Sword as a downer, because (as I predicted, by the way) on the hands-on reports, even the Nintendo-haters of the gaming press sang praises of how sensationally the swordplay was. And the art style is exactly what I wanted: cel-shaded, mature fantasy. The screenshots genuinely look like pictures and artwork... just gorgeous.
3DS has me so excited, too. I'm getting one at launch, even if it's over $200. Metal Gear Solid 3DS, Super Street Fighter IV, Star Fox 64, Dead or Alive 3DS (!), Kid Icarus, Resident Evil Revelations, and Atlus' pledged support of Etrian Odyssey and Persona... I think I've died and gone to heaven.
Gonna pour one for my homies. Gamers everywhere rejoice, for there are great times ahead for us.
