wth is retro doing these days?

Also, Switch is the fastest selling console in various countries worldwide. Fucks given by third parties = zero.

I'm not suprised, it's the norm now.

Back to Splatoon.

Disappointing that there was no Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, or third party surprise. However Fire Emblem looks awesome as did Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I really liked them showing all that stuff for Ultimate. That mech game looked really cool and I’m really looking forward to the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 dlc. Super Mario Party games are always fun. Kind of a short conference overall but there weren’t any cringe moments so I thought that it was pretty solid nonetheless. I think that I’d rate it a B-. Was hoping to see a bit more.

Project Octopath Traveler is out soon, then Mario Tennis.

Smash, Pokemon and Fire Emblem for years end. Given how little I game these days its more than enough. Truth be told I'm still working on my Switch backlog. Just got Steamworld Dig 2 and RE Revelaitons 2. Still have Xenoblade 2 to complete. I would play it more if it didn't look so bad offscreen.

It was a poor E3 showing from them regardless.

One thing of interest that I'll note is Super Mario party is already getting an overwhelmingly positive response. I haven't played much of that series for over a decade, but it is falling out of favor a bit amongst the fans. However, everyone likes this one by the look of the trailer. Seems to be more back to basics and everyone likes that.

IDK...to me the Switch is pretty disappointing overall. Granted, I'm someone who doesn't game "on the go", so to me it's just a console. I just don't get the hype. It's a Wii U port machine with a better controller and a horrible online service.

Anyway...they didn't show Metroid Prime 4 again? Fuck me, they're almost as bad as Square.

I don't game on the go much either, but as someone who has his consoles hooked up to the main tv, it sure is nice to be able to play a game while the missus is watching some series on netflix.  I think a lot of sales also come from it being the next 3DS, basically.

I guess Nintendo didn't show anything because it's more than a year away, and they don't tend to show games that won't release before next E3, if I recall correctly...  Still, they need to keep the hype going, and it wouldn't have hurt to show some more games, some more unexpected games, to keep the appetites wetted.  By the time MP4 releases, the fad may have passed.

I really wish they were smart enough to release Metroid Prime Trilogy remastered with Switch controls in the meantime, but they won't. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if MP4 doesn't release on the Switch at all.

That presentation was bad. I just skimmed through it...like 70% of the show was Smash Bros tutorial stuff. LOL The hell....

I'm glad Square is releasing The World Ends With You on Switch. That's a game I've always wanted to play. I'm sure the new Fire Emblem will be cool too.

You're being generous there. It was more like 90% indecision

They also need more third party support outside of indies. Where are all these Bandai Namco action games they were making?
