Nintendo Boss Reggie Reflects on E3 2015

The good people at Gamespot have sat down with Nintendo of America boss, Reggie Fils-Aimé, and discussed many topics including this years E3. It’s an interesting interview so give it a watch if you’re a Nintendo fan. Although we (and pretty much everyone else) think Nintendo’s E3 was lackluster to say the least, it’s hard to deny that the Wii U seems to be picking up a little bit of steam this year. The console won’t go on to be Nintendo’s best to date but it does have a strong lineup of games headed its way this year and early next. We will see what happens.

Give it a watch and let us know what you think.

SMASH BROS. WII U/3DS – JAPANESE DLC COMMERCIAL

Here is an exciting commercial for Smash Bros showcasing all the new DLC for the game. I love the fact that Nintendo put something like this out and I wonder if they will do something similar around the world.

The new DLC for Smash Bros is available now so head to the eShop and check it out.

I played Super Mario Maker And Zelda Triforce Heroes

I have played Super Mario Maker and Zelda Triforce Heroes and am pleased to report that they both play sublime. As expected, both of Nintendo’s newest titles in the 3DS and Wii U libraries are extremely fun but it’s always nice to hear it straight from someone who just played the games (my local Best Buy has the Play Nintendo promo from E3). Let’s be honest, Nintendo’s E3 digital Event was a bit of a train wreck. You know it, I know it, heck even Mr. Iwata knows it. However, if you have the chance to stroll down to a participating Best Buy, you may want to test out Nintendo’s latest two titles.

First off, Super Mario Maker. Super Mario Maker was insanely addicting and unbearably difficult (but in a good way). There are some twisted minds over at Nintendo and I LOVED every minute of it. What was nice is that when I got to my local Best Buy I was able to get some quality time with the Wii U game and I was impressed to say the least. I expected the game to be good but this thing is going to be magical! I cannot wait to get my hands on the retail copy as I want to make and create the same devious levels that I played through today.

I was very surprised that the other Nintendo rep had 3 new Nintendo 3DS systems and they were all equipped with the newly announced Zelda Triforce Heroes. While this game may have turned off some with its “spinoff” feel, it surely was fun. Fun is why we play games and there is no doubting that this game is going to be a barrel of it. I quickly became the “jerk” in the group because I couldn’t resist grabbing the other Links and throwing them off the side of the cliffs. It was hilarious to do and I just had to see their reaction and couldn’t resist. After a bit of joking around, all 3 of us began to work together and that’s when things really started to click. We worked well and had to communicate in order to get the job done. I could see how this game is going to make or break friendships and it’s going to be something fierce whenever it’s released.

Overall, I think we knew that these games were going to be something great but it was awesome to get my hands on them myself. I just wanted to report that these Nintendo titles felt great and if you have a chance to visit a Best Buy that is allowing people to check these games out, don’t miss it (be sure to look for some Nintendo goodies as well).

As always, thanks for reading. Let me know if you plan on participating in this promo.

Gamers Are Outraged With Metroid Prime Federation

Everyone seems to be upset with Nintendo’s newly announced Metroid Prime Federation for 3DS. If you take a gander at the screen shot above, over 25,000 people have given the video a thumbs down and have been shown their disapproval for this “Metroid Prime” spinoff. Metroid Prime Federation was shown during Nintendo’s Digital Event for E3 2015 and I will be very interested to see how they handle this going forward.

I was not impressed at all with Nintendo this year.

The game, which features a number of character working together, looked pretty decent and may not be the Metriod Prime people were hoping for.
