[split] E3 2018 - Mr EliteL - 06-12-2018


Let me try and recollect myself, so I can post proper news for Smash, God dang it. Nintendo won for me.

RE: E3 2018 - Dragon Lord - 06-12-2018

Whew that Nintendo "conference" was pretty meh. A new Fire Emblem game that'll probably be worse than Fates (and split into 5 games this time).

Smash Ultimate seems... okay. I think a new Smash game entirely would have been better than an All-Stars version.

Still no reasons to want to get a Switch.

RE: Nintendo @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-12-2018

It was an OK conference, but I'm surprised there was no mention of the Yoshi Switch game or Metroid 4.

Usually during E3 we get new stuff talked about & older games in a separate Direct. Usually there's another Direct a few month's after E3. So I'm thinking maybe Nintendo will show case more then.  

Or not, this is Nintendo they do what they want. XD

Also Xenoblade 2 & Fire Emblem were my interests. Thus Nintendo wins for Nintendo fans every where with the surprise brawler announcement. Lol

RE: Nintendo @ E3 2018 - Mr EliteL - 06-12-2018

I'm over my hype now. Everything else before Smash was meh to OK, so without that nothing special. As soon as I heard/saw the title of the new Fire Emblem game, I thought "Please, don't turn this into three different versions". Needs to stay as a single. The main units having a squad of soldiers looked pretty good, but in the long run, probably won't change anything/much. Only other notable game for me was Super Mario Party, but not something I'd really want.

RE: Nintendo @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-12-2018

Super Mario Party would be nice to get just as something new to play with a group of people over instead of the same Mario Party games.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC was neat to see for anyone a fan of the game and wanting to see what the DLC was coming up for it.

Smash was the only real big hitter I think, and maybe Nintendo knew that too so didn't show off too much of their other games to avoid them being lost beneath the hype for Smash.

Still, it was better than the video Square Enix put out, so at least it was presented decently unlike theirs.

RE: Nintendo @ E3 2018 - Yuri - 06-12-2018

For me this was just okay nothing amazing and I can't say they topped last years E3 for me. Don't get me wrong Ultimate Smash Bros seems really cool, but it probably only ever going to get a few plays from me before it gets old and put into a box where it will never see the light of day again.

The new Fire Emblem looks pretty cool and I think it might stray away from the dating sim aspect of previous games...or maybe not will have to see more about this "teacher" character. XD I think the writer been talking too much to the SMT staff.

For the new Mario Party no car is cool, but really it doesn't seem like Mario Party yet...will have to see.....

Overall I rate it a C- you pass Nintendo but do better next time D:<

RE: Nintendo @ E3 2018 - ShiraNoMai - 06-13-2018

In regards to the other titles not being shown, Nintendo have mentioned in interviews after the presentation that they had nothing ready to show yet presently, and will "show things when we think we’re ready to show them." In particular, they've decided to focus this presentation on short-term games coming out rather than the long-haul titles they're working on, which may have been both a blessing and curse. On the other hand, Nintendo had such a strong launch of games for the debut of the system that now it's gonna be real hard to follow up on that line-up.

As queen mentioned, there'll be more to show throughout the year with more Directs, and as E3 tends to become less and less relevant in the world of reveals/showcasing of games, it wasn't that big of a surprise to see such a limited Direct yesterday.

I'm shocked by the Xenoblade DLC making an appearance here. That was probably my favorite thing out of the Direct (aside from all the Smash news).

Also no one is talking about that awesome looking mecha combat game they opened the Direct with and I feel like it needs mentioning  Grin

RE: Nintendo @ E3 2018 - Moonface - 06-15-2018

I can't say the mecha combat game caught my interest much. It looked nice, but the trailer didn't manage to present the game in a way that got me excited for the game.
