    It just seems weird that they'd roll Miyamoto all the way to LA to say "Hey look, we do musical games too."

    Just seems like a waste of time for all involved, hell they didn't even announce a new Nintendogs or anything -anyone- could get excited about. I mean, I even LIKE Animal Crossing. It's why I got a DS and even that had me saying "Meh".

    Does anyone -really- give a care about Wii Sports Resort? They could have said absoloutely nothing and just released it and it would have sold bucketloads ANYWAY.

    Dear Nintendo,

    Quit screwing around and make a new Zelda.

    K, thanks, bye.

    They have sales for that. The public got in the way of the BUSINESS that was supposed to happen there. There are events that put developers in touch with the public, and this thing called the internet, and E3 wasn't that time or place.

    Wow, seems pretty weak after watching Microsoft's press conference first. No wonder I don't play the Wii that often...it doesn't seem to be able to keep pace w/ Microsoft!

    GTA for the DS?

    That sounds kind of cool. I'm waiting with cautious optimism.

    Though I love that they announce voice chat on Wii as something big :lolol .

    Pretty much the voice chat and Animal Crossing were all that interested me. If that's all Nintendo has, then I have a bad feeling the 360 will surpass the Wii.

    Though, if Nintendo and Microsoft merge together we could always see Master Chief in the next Smash Bros game. :D

    I can garentee you that's not all nintendo has.. They don't reveal big things at the shows often. They usualy do it at their own events or through Famitsu.

    I have a feeling this is true. E3 is no longer the place to draw all your guns anymore.

    *yawn*

    The only thing worth mentioning, Animal Crossing, was something we all knew was coming.

    Nintendo gets last place in the E3 race.

    Nintendo's press conference was so terrible I'm seriously pondering trading my Wii for a 360. I've held onto it for over a year with the optimistic hope that with its consistently huge sales numbers developers would get with the program and start doing some really cool stuff.

    Nope. There's nothing even on the radar that excites me. They've already burned through all the big franchises, and usually don't do more than one of each for each console generation. Third parties continue to produce shovelware.

    Literally the only thread keeping me hanging on is that my 5 year old son desperately wants the Wall-E game on Wii, and insists that he wants it on that and not anything else.

    I don't think I'm going to bother buying the new Animal Crossing because the graphics hardly look improved from GCN and it's basically the same game except for the city and a few features from the DS Animal Crossing.

    WTB New Super Mario Bros. 2 / Something from Square Enix on the Wii (Screw you, FF:CC 1.2).
