Riff's Quick Notes: Nintendo E3 2010 Press Conference

Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword: Now with official subtitle! Aside from the technical gaffe's on-stage, I'd say it looks pretty playable. Still looks way too early in development to make a final opinion. Flying beetle looks pretty nifty, though.

Wii Party: Eh, whatever. Next.

Mario Sports Mix: More casual crapness.

Goldeneye: Well, slap me on the ass and call me a bitch! It wasn't stated if this would be a sequel or a full-on remake. I'm just hoping the multiplayer is as fun to play at it was many years ago.

Epic Mickey: It looks better than I thought it would, but I'm still not sold on it yet. Maybe it's because I'm pretty sure that Disney is Swahili for Lucifer.

Kirby's Epic Yarn: What's with everything going "epic" all of a sudden. Wonder if Epic Games feels a little slighted. Kirby looks like the "epic" game I'd rather play. It's uber cuteness is outdone by stage design in my eyes.

Donkey Kong Country Returns: Looks pretty much like the DKC games from the SNES, just prettier. I'm sure the retro fans are going gaga over it right now.

Metroid Other M and Dragon Quest 9: Not even really sure why these were even shown, as they're both a heartbeat away from being released. I guess if it sells a few more copies, the better.

3DS: Well, more talking about 3DS, since you can't really show proper 3D on a big screen without glasses, and Nintendo really hates those damn glasses. Even then, NEW KID ICARUS!! Plus, a hella bunch of stuff from 3rd party developers. Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Saint's Row (?), and a ton of other interesting games.

Final thoughts: Nintendo just redeemed themselves from two years of lackluster showings and have stolen the show. Unless Sony says the Move is a joke and gives every PS3 owner a thousand dollars, then they don't have a chance in hell of following this one.
