E3 Wraps up With Nintendo Complaints and Some Sweet Games
Weird news out of E3 after Nintendo's lackluster performance yesterday, with plenty of gamers annoyed with Nintendo's offering. First there was a weird 5 minutes during the presentation where a woman no one knew talked about her snowboarding injury.
Then there was the 'new control scheme' that offered 1:1 sensitivity control, but the people they had showing it had no clue how to play and were flailing around wildly - or doing nothing at all.
Still, out of all that we can glean a few bits of good information, unfortunately very little of it is from Nintendo.
Apparently Microsoft and Sony were having such a good day Microsoft decided not to announce their new Bungie-fuelled Halo game. Ouch!
Also, that new Bioware Massively Multiplayer Online game? It's going to be Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Sweet!
People are also saying Nintendo is ignoring the hardcore gaming market, with it's plethora of sports and music-based 'casual' games.
Nintendo loves casual gamers like Mario loves mushrooms.
At a press conference kicking off day two of the E3 Media and Business Summit, the maker of Wii and Nintendo DS said Tuesday that while imitators copy its winning strategy, the company will continue to aggressively pursue nontraditional gamer markets.
Turns out at least one of Bungie's projectsis a Halo game. That new, Bungie Halo game, to be obviously published by MS, was supposed to be unveiled during Microsoft's keynote, but according to Don Mattrick, they pulled it at the last minute.
And just because I'm nice, a round-up of the latest games being announced.
