Nintendo E3 2015 - My Thoughts


Sorry for being gone for so long. Being a housekeeper, a volunteer, and a future one-man performer for an absurdist monologue show tends to eat up time on these sorts of things.

Anyway, I think it would behoove anyone listening to hear about my feelings regarding the uproar over Nintendo's E3.

It has pretty much closed down for 2015, and for most Nintendo faithful it was the year that the company supposedly imploded. Very few people were happy with the showing they produced, and many people have become so outraged by a few of the games that some people fear essentially what could be the French Revolution of Video Gaming (though I highly doubt anyone will be beheaded in the end).

While the cries for being done with Nintendo have run at a fever pitch for at least a day, as a voice of rationalism in a day where everyone acts like a herd of unruly mustangs, I have to say that, while the Nintendo E3 did lack the substance from what I read, I don't think it was quite the train wreck as so many of the pollsters and the talking heads make it out to be.

Lest I sound daft, let me explain in the games I have taken the most interest in...
  • Star Fox Zero (Wii U): It has been far too long to keep Fox McCloud and the rest of the Lylat System on the backburner of the Nintendo lineup. I definitely want to see this game succeed, though how one can make the proposed dual screen setup described at the conference is beyond my comprehension.
  • Super Mario Maker (Wii U): Probably the most interesting game of the Wii U lineup, the ability to create Mario stages from scratch and make them as hard as one pleases, ESPECIALLY playing with sets of rules that are not normal in the Mario series, makes it the sort of thing any true video gamer would want to pay top dollar for a chance to get a hold of it. The amiibo compatibility is pretty cool, though it is only like the sprinkles on top of a frosted cupcake.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U): Given how much I liked the original Xenoblade Chronicles, I do not doubt that this game will be a success too. I don't need to say too much more here.
  • Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Wii U/3DS): Interestingly, this was the game I wanted to hear the most about when word got out about it near the beginning of June. I was particularly hoping to see a short CG movie promoting the game, but sadly I did not see too much more that I already learned (rugby and golf will be new events; there are going to be some new playable characters, etc). I did hear that it will use amiibo in some way, and I can only imagine what that could entail, in more ways than one!
  • Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS): The same as Hyrule Warriors, but on the 3DS and with all of the DLC included for free, plus some Wind Waker add-ons. Seems good enough to me!
  • Bravely Second (3DS): Should be just as good as the original, though I hope they remove the repeat nonsense of the original game; it was irksome and rather time consuming to my tastes (I think they will in all honesty).
  • The Legend Of Zelda Triforce Heroes: Not exactly the Zelda series game everyone was looking for, but it's a nice twist nonetheless and should work well. My only complaint is the one player or three players setup, as well as whatever happened to purple 'Link' (Nerf Now has the likely answer).

As far as I'm concerned, that is a good lineup of games even at a time when Nintendo is clearly in a slump.

Here's an additional article, posted by Jacob Siegal from Yahoo, regarding the same topic, though he covers a different set of games than I did:
