    Good morning! I've been having a few turns of CastleStorm while I wait.

    Here's the link to the Digital Event.

    Also, if/when the Zelda teaser is revealed, I make no promises I won't be in tears- especially if they are truly bringing the original open world Zelda concepts back.

    I like the Twitch trivia: it's the 10 year anniversary of Reggie first stepping on stage at E3 for Nintendo.

    That Smash anime trailer was really nice, imagine if they had a Smash OVA or something like that, that would be really awesome.

    Zelda is gorgeous of course.

    Watching the Treehouse now, the Toad Treasure Tracker game looks pretty fun too actually. Those levels were fun in Mario 3D, I will probably be willing to buy an entire game dedicated to that.

    My body definitely wasn't Reggie when this announcement came up.

    Attended the Smash Fest today- long lines for two rounds, but I was pleased they also had the 3DS version on the side to try out. I played as Mega Man and Bowser. Mega Man has a lot of moves but I didn't do very well (was still adjusting to Pro Controller, which isn't that bad as an option but playing on anything other than GCN is still very hard to adjust to), did better with Bowser and managed to pull off Giga-Bowser which was cool.

    Smash Run looks pretty fun- played it with Samus. Also did a fight with Little Mac that was fun.

    Seems the gold coin preorder bonus had manufacturing issues and is being delayed til pre-order pick-up (pre-ordered the 3DS version).

    Biggest surprise as the stack of coupons they were giving out- $30 off Wii U systems (and 3DSXL/2DS), $20 off SM3DW, DKCTF, NSMBU or M&S Olympics and 10% off Wii U/3DS controllers/accessories. So I finally bought 3D World (though they had to order/ship one to me as they were out of stock).

    The coupons are only good til Saturday and are only good at the Smash Fest BB locations, not all BB locations. Still, that's a pretty sweet deal- use those two on the MK8 bundle and you basically get a free game on top of the Club Nintendo free game and the MK8 pack-in.

    EDIT: Oops, had the threads mixed up.



    I'm curious to see how the new IP develop but more excited about Star Fox.

    Apparently they are looking for partners for Star Fox…. hopefully Platinum Games will assist with the development. They will be introducing a new helicopter-eqsue vehicle too and the game pad should give a different perspective from the TV (Cockpit/Exterior craft view)


    EDIT: You will enjoy SM3DW, a lot of fun to play that, especially in multi co-op.

    There is a coin preorder bonus for Smash?

    They were advertising a coin preorder bonus for the first 70 at each Smash Fest event, now, due to the manufacturering issues, it seems everyone who pre-orders at a smash fest gets one. At least, that was what i was told. I'm a little skeptical but we'll see. Thats why i played it safe and pre-ordered the 3DS version only.

    Ahh. That would be good. I wonder what the preorder bonus will be for other outlets/regions. How does Smash compare to Brawl? Is there more weight/speed, feels more balanced?



    With the Amiibo… I do like that it is spread over several game series rather than be stuck to the same. It seems like Mario Kart 8 will be patched to have that functionality but I wonder what exactly it would do. Saves your custom kart configuration/time trials ghost to the figure? Add new characters to the game? If so then we'd have Samus/Link racing unless there are restrictions to keep it to the Kongs/Mushroom Kingdom group.

    You know, there was so much time between the last time I played Melee and first played Brawl, as well as how long it's been since i last played Brawl that I never really detected the weight/speed balance differences before, so I'm not the one to really comment on that. I was too preoccupied trying to adjust the pro controllers and stop myself from jumping off the edge by accident and getting used to the smash attack with the stick to worry about the more nuanced stuff.

    Hm, not sure if I should mention this in this thread or in the 3DS thread, but this one is more active, so might as well.

    Future 3DS
    Smash Bros (Oct 3, 2014)
    Pokemon: Omega Ruby (Nov 12, 2014)
    Pokemon: Alpha Sapphire (Nov 12, 2014)

    Additions-
    Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright (August 29, 2014?)
    The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for the eshop (Winter 2014)
    Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth- Fall 2014

    Nintendo announced a few more games then that, I think, but those are even further off than the games listed already, so no need to think about them too much.

    Thanks, @Nobody145.

    My thoughts on the future Wii U games:
    Open World Zelda (2015) - can't wait!
    Hyrule Warriors (Sept 26, 2014) - pretty much an insta-buy like Mario Kart
    Smash Bros - not interested
    amiibo - potentially interested in applications outside of Smash Bros, but obvious cash gran
    Yoshi Wooly's World (2015) - looks like it will be too easy like Kirby's Epic Yarn
    Capt Toad's Teasure Tracker (Holiday 2014) - these were neat when there was only 1 per level in Mario 3D World, but I think I'd end up stabbing someone if I had to play an entire game of just this
    Kirby and the Rainbow Curse - I played 5 minutes of Canvas Curse and couldn't get into it, I assume the same will be for me with this game
    Splatoon (2015) - really interesting concept, I want to see more of this, I hope there are paint grenades
    Mario Maker (2015) - very much want to play this, but I can see it being interesting for maybe half an hour and then putting it aside
    Devil's Third - wonder how long this will stay a Wii U exclusive...
    Star Fox - want, but no super excited about the gyro controls
    Project Giant Robot
    Project Guard
    Mario Party 10
    Bayonetta 2
    Xenoblade Chronicles X (2015)
