Nintendo Spotlight E3 2017 Discussion



  • I'm ready to be disappointed.



  • Please impress me, Nintendo.
    I've been waiting so long.



  • Well, I expected nothing. Got something but yet still nothing.

    • No VC
    • No mother 3
    • No Smash DX (Though this I didn't want anyway)
    • No Animal Crossing, not even for MOBILE and we know it exists
    • No Pokemon
    • No Solid Date for Xeno 2 (Still a placeholder season)
    • No Monster Hunter XX
    • No Octopath info
    • No Mainline Fire Emblem news
    • No Shin Megami Tensei news

    Basically bought into a console AGAIN from nintendo that has games I want but aren't out until 2-4 years after the system launches.

    At least Mario didn't get delayed, I guess.



  • METROID PRIME 4 YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!



  • @ZyloWolfBane I think a lot of that stuff you can't get too mad because they're either just rumors or things that are better served not in the 25 min. spotlight, but on the stream itself or in a direct.

    Really liked the stream, I liked a lot of what we saw. Showed that we can expect a lot the rest of 2017 and we still have a good look at 2018. I think they did a lot of what they needed to do, and I'm excited to have a Switch.

    We clearly watched two different Directs.

    Metroid Prime 4 just existing is enough for me and with how treehouse has worked in the past, I'm sure there's more announcements coming.

    Ok? Glad a game that has barely started development is great news for you. It's great, I wanted a new prime game. But I expected games that are actually coming this year like they originally said this presentation was going to be focused on.

    I'm physically sick of buying consoles from nintendo that never fully deliver on what they claim, having a console I bought for one game and watch as a bunch of filler games I'll never buy and ports come out while I watch trailers for games we won't see a damn thing on for at least 2 more E3s.

    If switches were hard to get still I'd ebay mine right now.



  • Xenoblade 2 confirmed for Holiday 2017 and this being confirmed at all is all i ever needed

    We're far enough into the year that a solid date should have been set for Xeno 2 by now. A season is still just a placeholder, they'll probably wait till mario comes out to announce the delay.



  • that was fantastic. I am so glad that most of these games I'll be playing by the end of next year!!! I feel like ppl expect too much from e3. I like the more focused stuff we have been seeing cause i'm tired of all these developers showing too much and then it being years off, empty promises, countless delays. The NS is like a baby system it has plenty of years left that it needs to fill out. Nintendo has good pacing, this time around, for releasing their console games imo.



  • @ZyloWolfBane dude i was expecting Xenoblade to be 2018.

    i don't even care that we don't have a solid date. the fact that it's been reconfirmed to be holiday 2017 is all i care about.



  • Nintendo... won O_O



  • Metroid Prime 4 exists! Xenoblade 2 is coming this year! I can possess a T-Rex in Mario! I am pleased.



  • 2 Metroid games!!!

    • Metroid: Samus is back with not just one, but two Metroid games! A gorgeous 2.5D one for Switch and 3DS, coming out this year, and a teaser for a full-on Retro-made Metroid Prime for Switch next year. You heard it here first!

    WHAT! THE! F***!!

    I have superpowers.



  • Before the narrative starts however, I'm still happy the games they announced are real. I'm not intentionally trying to be a dick just because it's nintendo. Just exclaiming my displeasure with what they did.

    This pattern of support each system launch is getting old. That's all I'm saying here. I can't get that excited for knowing games they're making exist.

    I mean look at how long it took to get FE x SMT, Xenoblade X, etc. They were announced early and didn't come out until the system was already done.

    It's more apprehensive fear than it is anger and disappointment, I want switch to finally be good and not suddenly die off once the games everyone wants finally come out. It needs to be strong in the first year for a change.

    No, I don't call their heavy multiplayer game focus and ports a "Strong" first year, ports are their usual practice.

    Now, as I type this out Metroid gets another announcement but for 3DS, THIS is what switch needed. I'm REALLY happy this exists, but I've already gotten plenty of life out of my 3DS, I'd rather it exist on 3DS than not at all BUT switch should've had this.

    It also would've been better to have had the 20+ mins they cut out from their presentation to have games like that at the end for 3DS. That Metroid to me is a BIGGER deal than prime 4. Gameplay is a hell of a lot more real than a title.



  • HOLY SHIT BALLS I LOVE YOU NINTENDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  • so glad Nintendo allowed crossplay with xbox. Now thre are three games. It's trending.



  • Metroid 2 Remake
    dead



  • Metroid Prime 4, not by Retro?
    Ehhh, skeptical. I don't trust Nintendo themselves with Metroid after the fucking travesty that was Other M.
    If it was Retro, that would have been an instant E3 win for me.
