E3: Pikmin 3 trailer and screenshots are SO GOOD

That music. Those adorable sound effects. Motherf***ing Rock Pikmin! Oh my goodness, Pikmin 3 is a real thing and, one day, I'll get to play it. Many of you probably know Chad as our resident series fanboy, but I'm right there with him. This is the one thing I wanted to see at E3 more than anything else.

In addition to looking wonderful visually, Pikmin 3 seems like it will be a perfect fit for the Wii U GamePad. I'm also loving the sound of that post-mission replay feature, which lets you fast forward, rewind, and pause your playthrough.

This probably goes without saying, but it looks like I'll be buying a Wii U the day Pikmin 3 comes out.

When Nintendo saw what "realistic polygon-powered graphics" were possible on the GameCube/Xbox/PS2, their first instinct wasn't to make a game about human beings doing crimes, saving the world, or even talking to each other. ...more
