Nintendo has a gaming lounge set up right next door to the San Diego Convention Center, where Comic-Con is taking place. In the San Diego Ballroom at the Marriott Marquis & Marina, right outside and to the right, is the Nintendo Gaming Lounge, and they actually have a lot of what we saw at E3 playable for the public for the first time. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the big title for the Wii, but there's a ton of upcoming hits for 3DS, including Super Mario, Starfox 64 3D, Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater, Kid Icarus Uprising, Mariokart and more. 

Speaking of big things, Nintendo also has some huge Augmented Reality cards on the floor of the Nintendo Gaming Lounge. They work just like your little ones, but they're waaaaay bigger. There's even a platform for gamers to stand on to look down on these cards, letting them snap 3D pics next to the beasts. 

You can get a look at some of the other attractions in Nintendo's Gaming Lounge in our gallery.

Link's outfit looks pretty badass in Monster Hunter 4

We've already known that Monster Hunter 4 has a very neat looking set of Link armor and weapon sets, but we haven't seen a whole lot of footage on them -- until this week that is, when Capcom unleashed a new trailer int...more

Monster Hunter 4 NA weapon contest winner is an insect glaive

I don't think anyone expected the North American weapon contest winner to top the UK's Monster Hunter 4 design (a freaking pig on a club, c'mon!), but it's a pretty cool looking item nonetheless. Yep, the North American...more
