    I've dreamt of this day for 14 long depressing years. I'm so fucking excited right now that I forget The Last Guardian was even re-launched.

    Yeah, I played the demo for it at a friend's house, and it sold me on getting a Playstation. It's the only RPG I've ever played all the way through, and I absolutely loved it. I was totally enthralled by the story, and it was probably the best looking game to ever come out at that point. It was really impressive.

    Shenmue already exceeded it's goal. Currently at $2.4 million. I can't believe it's actually going to happen.

    Only Zelda game they showed is a co-op 3DS game. New Animal Crossing for Wii-U is a re-skin of Mario Party that requires specific Amiibos to play with. New Metroid game is 3DS only and it's a 4 person multiplayer game. Only new Mario game is a new Mario Tennis (it's been 5 years now since Galaxy 2 which was the last of the Mario 64 style games). Yoshi's Wooly World got a weird release date. Comes out in October for the US but comes out next Friday for Japan and Europe. New Star Fox was announced but it looks like a Gamecube game with HD resolution. Also, it looks like it's going to have quite a bit of forced motion control and gamepad use. There was also a new paper mario hybrid game they barely touched on for 3DS. Basically it feels like the Wii U is pretty much dead in the water right now and their only focus is on multiplayer co-op games for 3DS.

    1 - I don't really get why they made the smash bros stuff a different announcement
    2 - Only thought I have is that they do the nintendo direct's all the time and without warning, so good things can come from them at any time, making E3 a "not-so-big-deal" ?? More nintendo mind bubble =[

    I'm pissed at this stupid fucking co-op Samus-free Metroid announcement. God damnit, Nintendo. Why do you do this to me? We haven't gotten a good Metroid game in what, 8 years?

    I agree that it's weird that Nintendo has almost no Wii U games announced. At the show they are pushing Mario Maker hard. They have devoted a ton of floor space to Star Fox Zero though, and I have to say it looks pretty great. I watched a lot of gameplay today, and hopefully I'll get to actually play it tomorrow. It's definitely the weakest year in a long time though, especially when 2 games are making their second E3s with no release yet.

    Play Cuphead and let me know how amazing it is!
    Also, Firewatch. Most excited about that. Looks wonderful.

    I know I'm late to the party, but I'm so fucking pumped for that FF7 remake. That game was such a defining piece of my childhood, and I can't wait to see how they re-imagine it.

    I am sold on Super Mario Maker. It looks really simple to design a level plus all of the premade levels and level sharing.

    Starfox never has really looked graphically appealing to me. The gameplay looks like it follows a railshooter into all range mode which can feel linear yet Platinum Games helping I hope they can make use of what did bayonetta 2 going thru extreme level pacing. I like the way Starfox 0 is using the gamepad.

    I think Yoshi Wally World not being released till October besides whatever they do to regionalizes the game and so they can make more Yarn Yoshis amiibos

    I think it was great that they separated Smash Bros from E3 because I was playing Smash Bros enjoying the new DLC than watching other E3 presentations.

    I hope the puppets come back.

    Rare Replay taught me that one of my favorite NES games, Cobra Triangle is a Rare game. I hope more people liked it enough for a more modernize verison remake. LIke Starfox meets Michael Bay Movies.

    Amazon has lowered the price on a bunch of Wii U games like Bayonetta 1+2 for $45.

    I played most of the Nindies@E3 demos . Runbow is surprisingly my favorite, which will be a fun party platformer game .

    not about a game (though the thread title suggests it is about the hardware...), but when I visited the Louvre while I was in France I noticed that the personal tour, instead of a standard audio device, uses the 3DS for their personal tour. it gives you a map and additional information on everything at your fingertips as well as the audio guide. it turns out you can even download it and browse pictures and information about their entire collection at home. I thought that was pretty neat.

    Cool I'll have to download that application now.Recently I took my N3DS with me on my travels to Underworld. The n3ds,3ds, and maybe the 2ds have a street pass system where when you walk pass another person with one, you exchange data and what seems random right now because I don't understand is that it seems to sends a random gift or you can play certain games with these bypasser. I have a addiction to bring my N3DS everywhere and try to get more street passes is fun

    I started to play less Monster Hunter 4 U since I'm having trouble beating this Infected dragon within the 50 minute time limit. Currently, Im playing Pokémon Omega Sapphire which I have about 6 or 7 gym bages and my highest lvl is 41. I thought Kadabra would be a great pyshic pokemon on my team yet he been on and off .

    I bought Splatoon today for a total $57 with Amazon prime I had got $6-7 off plus free Shipping. I'm really hesitate on buying game for $60 but I'm happy I have finally bought this game. I have loved what I've played so far and just one on one off line mutiplayer is intense and feels like some Animorphs/Secret World of Alex Mack meets Jet Set Radio in a paintball based sport games. They have a weapon that's the old orange zapper for Nes which I think is a perfect weapon for a Nintendo shooter.

    Seems relevant for a gaming thread on a music forum:
    Mondo is releasing a gorgeous 4xLP set of the soundtrack from The Last of Us on Wednesday. I've only snagged two of their vinyl releases so far. One, the Fury Road LP, doesn't ship for another week or so... But the other, the Hannibal LP, is great quality in terms of both packaging and the vinyl itself.
    Relevant details can be found here: http://us9.campaign-archive1.com/?u=...&id=8d8cd74999

    I'm 100% picking up that Last of Us vinyl (I also pre-ordered the Shenmue, Streets of Rage, and Journey soundtracks on vinyl this year).

    Yeah, I'm setting up alerts on their twitter so I can snag it myself, as I expect this one will sell out pretty quickly.
