What follows is my edgy, totally legitimate and well-thought out analysis of E3: 2010.
Before E3 2010:
RAWR NINTENDO HAS ABANDONED REAL GAMERS FOR KIDDIES AND OLD FARTS! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! A TRAVESTY!
After E3 2010:
EVERYTHING IS AMAAAAAZING!
I LOVE EVERYBODY!
But seriously, folks
I've never really cared what Nintendo did; as in I never really felt any betrayal. I always knew that Nintendo's casual-friendly, shovel-ware loving platform would never stop them from making great games themselves. And even if that distorted other
doomsday scenario should ever manifest, I still always had other platforms that served me just as well. But now, with Metroid: Other M looking pretty awesome, Super Mario Galaxy 2, new Zelda, and even new Donkey Kong Country: I'm really starting to re-think the old decision to sell my Wii.
Also, there is the giant fricken pile of awesome sitting on the 3DS
I don't think Nintendo has ever unloaded so much awesome in such a short period of time, to say I am excited is a complete misuse of the word.
What about everybody else?
I am definitely as excited for a bunch of other non Nintendo software as well!
- Looks like Gears of War, but with enjoyable gameplay and an even more ridiculous story. I can dig that
Marvel Vs Capcom 3
- Holy fuck I'm going to suck at this game, but damn if I won't buy it.
Metal Gear Solid Rising
- Just so you know, I am completely and utterly loathe to admit this: Raiden looks like a mother fucking badass
. Maybe he shut off the emo valve for this game? Maybe that confrontation with those Gecko fried his suck-it-up cyborg chips and he lapsed to whiny-bitch mode for all of MGS4? If I buy this game and I like it more than MGS4 I will eat my shoe. Honest.
However, the second he utters a line as completely idiotic as the ones he did in MGS4 (I won't repeat myself as I've aired my intense hatred for Raiden many times on this site) then no shoes will be eaten.
Xbox 360 Slim
- If only cause my fat 360 had a heart attack (it really didn't have to eat all that McDonalds.) Kinda upset that I have to buy a transfer kit though since the hard drives are incompatible and MS can't even let the stupid console use a non-proprietary enclosure and hard drive controller.. thing.. or something.
So this is E3, it's been exciting because of Nintendo, and HEY, despite popular fear and other general idiocy
motion control DIDN'T completely wipe out gaming as we know it! That's a plus too! read
