E3: Recap of the Nintendo press conference

It's a bit odd for me to be the one recapping Nintendo's E3 2012 press conference, because I totally missed it. But, looking over what news has come out, I think I know how it went down. There was a guy with abs, Reggie got zombified, and they finally showed Pikmin 3. That's basically it, right?

Here is a recap of all the major news during the event:

E3: PIKMIN 3 ANNOUNCED FOR WII U ARRRRRGH!
E3: Nintendo will show 23 Wii U games on stage today
E3: Wii U to support two GamePads
E3: Nintendo announced Wii U streaming services
E3: New Super Mario Bros. U announced
E3: SiNG (working title) for Wii U, image says it all
Nintendo 3DS getting its own E3 show tomorrow
E3: Nintendo reveals a handful of third-party Wii U games
E3: Ninja Gaiden 3 coming to Wii U, published by Nintendo
E3: New Super Mario Bros. 2 releasing August 19
E3: Wii U gets the Batman: Arkham City 'Armored Edition'
Paper Mario: Sticker Star out this Holiday for the 3DS
E3: Nintendo announces Wii Fit U
E3: REGGIE ZOMBIE!
E3: Nintendo confirms more third-party 3DS titles
E3: Lego City battles crime on the Wii U
E3: What critics thought of Nintendo's press conference
E3: Nintendo spells out Scribblenauts Unlimited
E3: Luigi's Ghost Mansion is part of NintendoLand
BANANAS WIN E3
E3: Well, THIS guy liked Nintendo's press conference
E3: My thoughts on the Nintendo press conference

As someone who owns a 3DS and doesn't feel compelled to get a Wii U at launch, I'm greatly looking forward to tomorrow's 3DS-specific showing from Nintendo. Not to be all jaded or anything, but E3 2013 is going to be so much more exciting. It has to be.
