Nintendo's second-quarter lineup includes Wii Play sequel

Early this morning, we informed you that Nintendo had settled on a June 19 release date for Ocarina of Time 3D in the US. Nintendo has now supplied us with a list of first- and third-party titles that will be dropping on its platforms through the end of the summer. As was (disappointingly) expected, the Wii and DS lineups are rather anemic, while the 3DS lineup doesn't feature anything we weren't already aware of.

However, there is a "surprise" in the form of Wii Play: Motion, a follow-up to the near-launch Wii Remote hitchhiker that everyone loves to talk smack about. Motion will include 12 new minigames as well as the updated Wii Remote Plus. It looks to have a release date of June 13, just a week prior to Ocarina.

I have mixed feelings about this news. Nintendo is really feeling the heat to turn Wii's fortunes back, but I'm disappointed that it is resorting to reaching back into the Wii's launch window library for a quick injection. It's like Nintendo is tapped out of ideas for the Wii Remote. I'm also not sure if a Wii Play sequel will have any kind of impact at this point.

Oh well. E3 is around the corner. In the meantime, hit the jump to see the rest of the lineup.

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

After a summer of on-and-off casual play, I've finally reached lv. 34 in Destiny :')

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.
