[8:39] Brian Leahy: "Man, it's early. Ya'll ready for Nintendo?"
[8:39] Brian Leahy: "Raymond should be setup shortly."
[8:40] Raymond Padilla: "Good morning everyone! Coffee completely rules!!!"
[8:43] Raymond Padilla: "Ah, excellent morning question. A viewer asked my what my favorite coffee was. It's not Starbucks. I grind my own beans at home, drink a cup there, and bring a cup to work. I usually stick to organic or biodynamic beans. Love Sumatra mandheling and Ethiopean harrar."
[8:43] Brian Leahy: "Coffee snob!"
[8:43] Brian Leahy: "I represent Dunkin' Donuts 4 Life"
[8:44] Raymond Padilla: "Brian, making coffee yourself is much cheaper than Starbucks."
[8:44] Raymond Padilla: "Back to Nintendo! It's time for a poll!!!"
[8:45] Poll: What Nintendo franchise to you want the company to go big on at E3 2009?
Zelda:  ( 58% )
Mario:  ( 19% )
Metroid:  ( 11% )
Kid Icarus:  ( 7% )
Eggplant Wizard vs. Brian Leahy:  ( 5% )
[8:46] Brian Leahy: "Zelda better be in the cards. A new DS game is good, but I want a full release that isn't just a GameCube game with Wii controls thrown in."
[8:47] Brian Leahy: "The stream will start up when Nintendo starts. For pre-show, you'll have to tune into G4 on your TV. http://g4tv.com/channel to find it on your provider."
[8:47] Poll: When will you buy Wii MotionPlus?
Now!!!:  ( 18% )
Later!!!:  ( 45% )
Never!!!:  ( 37% )
[8:48] Brian Leahy: "If you aren't watching the pre-show, you're missing Billy Berghammer being a total Nintendo fanboy."
[8:48] Patrick Klepeck:  "Where is the rawmeatcowboy? Show yourself! #e3"
[8:48] Raymond Padilla:  "I'm pretty into Wii MotionPlus. Enjoyed it in EA's Grand Slam Tennis and it made my golf game even more laughable in Tiger Woods 10."
[8:48] Brian Leahy: "Should be kicking off in 12 minutes or so."
[8:50] Brian Leahy: "I'm scared... I'm scared of charts."
[8:51] Brian Leahy: "We have a couple readers that are scared of James Cameron showing up again."
[8:51] Raymond Padilla: "Btw, there should be a new Mario game announced today, according to TheFeed's Jake "The Snake" Gaskill."
[8:54] Raymond Padilla: "For the record, the Ubisoft press conference totally killed me last night, so much so that I skipped out on Jay-Z and Eminem at the Activision party. That's how powerful James Cameron is. Scary, hey?"
[8:54] Patrick Klepeck:  "I'm having trouble imagining what Nintendo can pull off after yesterday's impressive kick off #e3"
[8:55] Raymond Padilla:  "Someone asked what the best way to watch E3 2009 press conferences was. The answer is watch it on G4, also watch it on G4tv.com, and chat away with your fellow G4 gamers!"
[8:57] Poll: Which Nintendo executive are you looking forward to hearing today?
Satoru Iwata:  ( 53% )
Reggie Fils-aime:  ( 37% )
Cammie Dunaway:  ( 10% )
[8:57] Raymond Padilla: "This is a tough one. Iwata-san is very charming. Reggie has eye beams. And Cammie...."
[8:58] Raymond Padilla: "Fun fact: Reggie Fils-aime used to be a marketing executive for Panda Express and Guiness beer."
[8:59] Raymond Padilla: "orange chicken + stout beer = Wii MotionPlus?"
[8:59] Andrew Pfister:  "Trying to decipher clues about PC from pre-show Nintendo trivia on the screen. Failing. #e3"
[9:00] Raymond Padilla:  "I would love to beat up Xbox 360 Milo with a Wiimote."
[9:01] Raymond Padilla: "Looks like Nintendo is starting a bit late."
[9:02] Raymond Padilla: "I think James Cameron is giving the Nintendo peeps a pep talk."
[9:02] Raymond Padilla: "Or maybe Nintendo is being naughty so that people are late for the Sony presser."
[9:03] Raymond Padilla: "It's on!!!"
[9:04] Raymond Padilla: "Opening montage is showing gameplay clips and happy people playing Wii and DS. I love playing games, but I don't sport a ridiculous smile while I'm playing."
[9:04] Raymond Padilla: "The clip was fun and lighthearted."
[9:04] Raymond Padilla: "Cammie Dunaway is kicking things off."
[9:05] Brian Leahy: "The stream is live. Please refresh your page if you don't see it yet."
[9:05] Brian Leahy: "She's building up to a chart. I can feel it."
[9:05] Raymond Padilla: "Cammie's outfit sure is angelic. That's a whole lotta white."
[9:06] Brian Leahy: "This feels like a Steve Jobs speech."
[9:06] Raymond Padilla: "She's spouting that" videogames are the biggest thing evar" rhetoric."
[9:06] Raymond Padilla: "women on planes + uncles = everyone's game"
[9:07] Raymond Padilla: "This press conference needs more Pele."
[9:07] Raymond Padilla: "Mario montage is playing. I'm thinking of the "Montage" song from Team America."
[9:08] Raymond Padilla: "The tesseract comments are cracking me up. Great nerd joke!"
[9:08] Raymond Padilla: "New Super Mario Bros. for Wii!!!"
[9:09] Raymond Padilla: "The excellent Bill Trinnan is taking over. Bill is pretty awesome."
[9:09] Brian Leahy: "Multiplayer Mario?!"
[9:09] Raymond Padilla: "Four people on stage playing the game."
[9:09] Sterling McGarvey:  "NSMB Wii? OH SNAP! #e3"
[9:09] Patrick Klepeck:  "Some serious lack of clapping for a new Mario game #e3"
[9:09] Raymond Padilla:  "Item boxes = an item for each player."
[9:10] Sterling McGarvey:  "This is Nintendo's answer to co-op. :) #e3"
[9:10] Raymond Padilla:  "It looks like fun, but I'm not seeing the fourth dimension."
[9:11] Raymond Padilla: "Oh yeah, there was a serious lack of clapping -- surprising for a new Mario game."
[9:11] Raymond Padilla: "Propeller suit looks pretty cool."
[9:11] Brian Leahy: "I'm kind of underwhelmed. They added multiplayer to the DS Mario."
[9:12] Raymond Padilla: "That's sounds like a poll Brian!"
[9:12] Brian Leahy: "They should be showing off new things besides four players."
[9:12] Poll: What do you think of the new Mario game?
Love it!!!:  ( 19% )
What's this 2D crap?:  ( 38% )
Reserving judgement at this time.:  ( 43% )
[9:13] Brian Leahy: "Why isn't that on DS?"
[9:13] Sterling McGarvey:  "Somewhere in these propeller suits is an ADULT. reference. #e3"
[9:13] Raymond Padilla:  "Launching worldwide holiday 2009."
[9:13] Raymond Padilla: "Playable on the show floor today."
[9:13] Brian Leahy: "Hey, is it time for Zelda?"
[9:13] Brian Leahy: "Oh, Wii Fit."
[9:13] Raymond Padilla: "Wii Fit Plus time?"
[9:14] Brian Leahy: "Separate gaming platform?? Is that because it is, itself, a tiny platform."
[9:14] Patrick Klepeck:  "Moving on from Mario this quickly? Maybe Nintendo has some serious bombs ahead #e3"
[9:14] Andrew Pfister:  "NSMB Wii called "Miyamoto's Latest Masterpiece". New Miyamoto 2D Super Mario...time to revise interview questions, Billy. #e3"
[9:14] Raymond Padilla:  "I know there are a lot of Wii Fit haters here, but it's important for Nintendo to talk about this product in front of the mainstream press."
[9:15] Brian Leahy: "Wii Fit Plus won't call you fat."
[9:15] Raymond Padilla: "Six new strength and yoga activities!!! Project Natal is teh doomed!!!"
[9:15] Brian Leahy: "Six?!"
[9:15] Raymond Padilla: "That's like one more than five! Amazing!!!"
[9:16] Brian Leahy: "This is the kind of thing DLC is made for."
[9:16] Patrick Klepeck:  "This press conference is unusually quiet. Almost creepy. It feels like everyone is just staring and judging. #e3"
[9:16] Brian Leahy:  "Whoa, 15 new balance games."
[9:16] Raymond Padilla: "Oh...it's also a lot of fun because of the 15 new balance games."
[9:16] Raymond Padilla: "Cammie says it's Brain Age for your ass."
[9:16] Raymond Padilla: "Nice one."
[9:16] Brian Leahy: "Perfect 10 - Swing your hips to hit balloons that add up to ten. Math & Exercise, the two most fun things."
[9:17] Sterling McGarvey:  "Wait, Wii Fit will be more efficient? Gotta take on those Johnny Come Latelies. #e3"
[9:17] Andrew Pfister:  "Ms. Dunaway seems nice and all, but we need Reggie Energy this early in the morning. #e3"
[9:17] Brian Leahy:  "Pausing for applause is not working today."
[9:17] Raymond Padilla: "Well, at least it's not James Cameron...."
[9:17] Brian Leahy: "Sizzle reel for Nintendo's current catalogue."
[9:17] Brian Leahy: "REGGIE!!!"
[9:18] Raymond Padilla: "Reggie Fils-Aime and his eye beams are ready to conquer the crowd."
[9:19] Brian Leahy: "WiiMotion Plus time."
[9:19] Raymond Padilla: "Interface is the primary weapon. That's why Wii has been selling like spicy pork."
[9:19] Raymond Padilla: "Little extender. *snicker*"
[9:19] Brian Leahy: "Just looking, you almost don't notice you're ponying up more money."
[9:20] Raymond Padilla: "Physical reality?!?"
[9:20] Patrick Klepeck:  "I want to feel the difference, Reggie! #e3"
[9:20] Brian Leahy:  "If you guys didn't know that Wii MotionPlus added precision. You will now."
[9:20] Raymond Padilla: "Screw this virtual reality stuff! Nintendo is all about physical reality!!!"
[9:21] Brian Leahy: "Also, once again, impossible to make a trailer or video for the Wii without also including some real-world component."
[9:21] Raymond Padilla: "No people, that is not Lady Deathstrike playing ping pong."
[9:21] Raymond Padilla: "I'm digging these promo videos. They're pretty slick."
[9:22] Raymond Padilla: "They totally work for explaining what Wii's about to non-gamers."
[9:22] Brian Leahy: "I wonder what peripheral they will add next year?"
[9:22] Raymond Padilla: "Wii anklets?"
[9:22] Sterling McGarvey:  "My money's on enhanced remote w built-in Motion Plus within 18 months. #e3 http://twitpic.com/6gygw"
[9:23] Brian Leahy:  "Time for stage demos. Awkward stage demos."
[9:23] Raymond Padilla: "Bill Trinnan is back to be demo boy."
[9:23] Raymond Padilla: "Did Bill Trinnan get more applause than the Mario game?"
[9:23] Brian Leahy: "Starting off with Wii Sports Resort."
[9:23] Sterling McGarvey:  "My money's on enhanced remote w built-in Motion Plus within 18 months. #e3"
[9:23] Andrew Pfister:  "Agreed -- RT @Sterling McGarvey: My money's on enhanced remote w built-in Motion Plus within 18 months. #e3 http://twitpic.com/6gygw"
[9:24] Brian Leahy:  "One reader pointed out that we don't know what the bottom of a Mii's shoe looks like... Zing."
[9:24] Raymond Padilla: "By the way, the tweeters joining us are G4tv.com's Sterling McGarvey, Andrew Pfister, and Patrick Klepek. They're all excellent people with impressive karaoke skills."
[9:24] Brian Leahy: "Your hand will feel like its skydiving."
[9:25] Raymond Padilla: "Will this dry my hair too?"
[9:25] Brian Leahy: "But you'll feel even more immersed with the new Wiimote Fan, blowing air on your face from the bottom of the Wiimote."
[9:25] Brian Leahy: "That isn't real, I'm just kidding."
[9:25] Andrew Pfister:  "Guessing Nintendo's acknowledgment/response to Natal will be "you don't have to wait, and we have motion from the start." #e3"
[9:25] Raymond Padilla:  "You know, this actually works for me. My brother broke his spine skydiving (he's okay now), so I'm scared of that activity."
[9:25] Brian Leahy: "Ok, now we're on to Archery."
[9:26] Raymond Padilla: "Wii needs a Green Arrow or Hawkeye game. I'm going to pitch my friend at Marvel."
[9:26] Brian Leahy: "Cool for archery, but you won't feel tension in the string."
[9:27] Brian Leahy: "He missed one. Nintendo's stock drops by 5 points."
[9:27] Raymond Padilla: "All of this stuff is great for the mainstream audience, but Nintendo is disappointing core gamers again...so far anyway."
[9:28] Patrick Klepeck:  "Nintendo is having a tough time with this audience, but they're following Microsoft's lead and showing, not telling. #e3"
[9:28] Raymond Padilla:  "Reggie doesn't need a bow and arrow. He has eye beams."
[9:28] Brian Leahy: "But we had new Mario, Raymond! New. Mario. Isn't that enough?"
[9:28] Raymond Padilla: "New 2D Mario? That's not enough."
[9:29] Raymond Padilla: "Brian, I bet Reggie wins this basketball contest."
[9:29] Raymond Padilla: "And I'm not just saying that because Bill's white."
[9:29] Brian Leahy: "This is my biggest issue with the Wii. It can only simulate sports in the small scale. Instead of a full basketball game, we get a shooting minigame."
[9:30] Raymond Padilla: "Gimme my $5, Brian."
[9:30] Brian Leahy: "I never took that bet!"
[9:30] Raymond Padilla: "Physical reality vs. Milo?"
[9:30] Brian Leahy: "July 26th in US for Wii Sports Resort."
[9:31] Brian Leahy: "Tiger time."
[9:31] Brian Leahy: "I actually really like Tiger. Golf is the perfect sport for the Wii because you don't have to work your feet around and no one wants to simulate walking to your ball."
[9:31] Brian Leahy: "SEGA's Virtua Tennis will use Wii MotionPlus."
[9:32] Brian Leahy: "Red Steel 2 name-drop. Requires MotionPlus."
[9:32] Brian Leahy: "That's not quite a chart..."
[9:32] Raymond Padilla: "Again, most of the people that read/watch G4 already knew about all of these games, so this is more for the mainstream press."
[9:32] Brian Leahy: "But it sort of is."
[9:32] Sterling McGarvey:  "The worst habit I have at #e3 press conferences is when I stumble onto the teleprompter. It ruins things for me."
[9:32] Raymond Padilla:  "RPG?!? I'm interested!"
[9:33] Brian Leahy: "Square-Enix - Exclusive open-world adventure."
[9:33] Raymond Padilla: "Ohhhhh, Crystal Chronicles?"
[9:33] Brian Leahy: "Final Fantasy."
[9:33] Raymond Padilla: "It's Final Fantasy: Crystal Bearers."
[9:33] Sterling McGarvey:  "Crystal Bears! #e3"
[9:34] Raymond Padilla:  "No sterling, it's not Crystal Bears."
[9:34] Brian Leahy: "Classic franchise for DS - Sept. 29th, New Kingdom Hearts - Roll trailer."
[9:35] Raymond Padilla: "Okay, I'm totally down with Crystal Bearers and Kingdom Hearts for Wii."
[9:35] Brian Leahy: "Kingdom Hearts for DS, Raymond ;P"
[9:35] Andrew Pfister:  "Crystal Bears and Kingdom Hearts Math both looking expectedly decent. #e3"
[9:35] Brian Leahy:  "Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days."
[9:35] Brian Leahy: "Mario & Luigi RPG 3 coming to US."
[9:36] Raymond Padilla: "Btw peeps, I'm checking out Crystal Bearers at E3, so stay tuned for my preview."
[9:36] Brian Leahy: "I played the Japanese import. It's a good game."
[9:36] Raymond Padilla: "Yeah, I love most of the Mario RPGs."
[9:36] Patrick Klepeck:  "Kingdom Hearts on DS looks great, though I still don't expect to know WTF is going on. #e3"
[9:36] Sterling McGarvey:  "Mario & Luigi: the only RPGs I get amped for. Can't wait. #e3"
[9:36] Andrew Pfister:  "Mario & Luigi 3 game of the show. Callin' it! #e3"
[9:36] Brian Leahy:  "Some fun interaction between Mario & Luigi inside of Bowser to help him do things in the overworld."
[9:37] Raymond Padilla: "Oops. Forgot to put my phone on vibrate. I'm that guy."
[9:37] Brian Leahy: "Release Date - Fall 2009"
[9:37] Brian Leahy: "More RPG news?!"
[9:37] Brian Leahy: "Legendary?"
[9:37] Raymond Padilla: "What could it be?"
[9:37] Brian Leahy: "Back to portables... last game 6 years ago."
[9:37] Raymond Padilla: "Ha!"
[9:37] Brian Leahy: "Golden Sun DS."
[9:37] Raymond Padilla: "Golden Sun DS = gamers, go get a frickin' tan."
[9:37] Sterling McGarvey:  "It'll be Super Lemmiwinks Bros! #e3"
[9:38] Raymond Padilla:  "Cammie is back."
[9:38] Brian Leahy: "Bye, Reggie. *sniff*"
[9:38] Patrick Klepeck:  "Golden Sun gets the first "yes!" from the crowd. Also, first trailer to make this theater's subwoofers go brwbrwbrw. #e3"
[9:39] Raymond Padilla:  "I'm pretty underwhelmed with the presser so far. Is Iwata-san saving all the big announcements for himself?"
[9:39] Brian Leahy: "James Paterson's "Women's Murder Club" coming to DS in October."
[9:39] Sterling McGarvey:  "Ha, I was expecting Alex Cross on DS. #e3"
[9:39] Brian Leahy:  "Interactive mystery."
[9:40] Raymond Padilla: "I'm already in The Women's Murder Club. Too many women -- especially Korean women -- have ruined me."
[9:40] Brian Leahy: "Hotel Dusk, but for casual audiences."
[9:40] Raymond Padilla: "Games of passion? Nintendo is making romance-novel games?"
[9:41] Raymond Padilla: "I'm still mad at Ubi for yesterday's presser."
[9:41] Patrick Klepeck:  "James Patterson gets mocked, but good move. #e3"
[9:41] Sterling McGarvey:  "Why does this Women's Murder Club announcer sound like the Lifetime lady? #e3"
[9:41] Raymond Padilla:  "Agreed with Klepek. James Patterson is great for the mainstream."
[9:41] Brian Leahy: "Ubisoft adventure - Cop: The Recruit."
[9:41] Raymond Padilla: "Where's the hair-styling game, Brian?"
[9:42] Brian Leahy: "You called it."
[9:42] Raymond Padilla: "Here it is, G4tv's Billy Berghammer's game of the show."
[9:42] Brian Leahy: "Girl games are only allowed to be about fashion, babysitting, and virtual pets."
[9:43] Patrick Klepeck:  "Cop: The Recruit is GTA: Chinatown Wars if they'd modeled it after the PSP games. #e3"
[9:43] Andrew Pfister:  "Did I just go back in time to the Ubi conference? #lost #e3"
[9:43] Brian Leahy:  "Something for everyone?"
[9:43] Raymond Padilla: "Diversity shmiversity. Gimme more core games!!!"
[9:43] Brian Leahy: "Maybe this will be the announcement of my secret DSi game..."
[9:43] Brian Leahy: "DSi: Miami."
[9:44] Raymond Padilla: "You know Brian, sometimes the DSi...plays you!"
[9:44] Brian Leahy: "YEAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
[9:44] Raymond Padilla: "(Does that joke play on text?)"
[9:44] Brian Leahy: "You know what's great to bring to E3. Stuff you've already released."
[9:44] Raymond Padilla: "Ha!"
[9:45] Brian Leahy: "Number drop!"
[9:45] Patrick Klepeck:  "Where is Miyamoto? #e3"
[9:45] Sterling McGarvey:  "Observation: It's funny how quirky Japanese games that cynical nerds scoffed at are now being taken very srsly by publishers. #e3"
[9:45] Brian Leahy:  "Over 1 million DSi's sold."
[9:45] Raymond Padilla: "Nintendo is dangerously close to being Ubisoft bad with this presser. At least the A/V stuff is going smoothly and nobody is talking about 10-foot tall blue people."
[9:45] Brian Leahy: "But my PSP can already play NES and SNES games ;)"
[9:46] Sterling McGarvey:  "DSi. Bring it on. Gimme Virtual Console on my DSi! #e3"
[9:46] Brian Leahy:  "Flip Notes Studio coming to America this Summer. DSi movie maker."
[9:46] Raymond Padilla: "Mario vs. Donkey Kong"
[9:46] Brian Leahy: "With level design."
[9:47] Raymond Padilla: "User-generated levels? Think it'll work?"
[9:47] Brian Leahy: "Not on Nintendo's online service."
[9:47] Raymond Padilla: "Powered by GameS...wait, I don't work there anymore."
[9:47] Brian Leahy: "Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again - playable at the show - available on June 8th (Monday) - DSi Ware"
[9:47] Andrew Pfister:  "Mario vs. Donkey Kong is probably the reason I'll get a DSi. If you haven't played the first two, they're excellent. #e3"
[9:47] Sterling McGarvey:  "Mario vs DK 3? Ooh. #e3"
[9:48] Raymond Padilla:  "Wario Ware DIY"
[9:48] Raymond Padilla: "40-year Old Virgin: "Do you like, doing it yourself?""
[9:48] Brian Leahy: "That's pretty cool, but it's a little bit: "Why don't you just create your own games. We're busy.""
[9:48] Patrick Klepeck:  "Nintendo should have recruited some fanboys for this thing, damn #e3"
[9:48] Raymond Padilla:  "Design your own Wario Ware micro-games."
[9:49] Brian Leahy: "This summer, upload your DSi photos to Facebook."
[9:49] Raymond Padilla: "More Facebook madness!!!"
[9:49] Brian Leahy: "Thank God they didn't go with MySpace."
[9:49] Brian Leahy: "Sony better have some Facebook news."
[9:49] Raymond Padilla: "Will you be able to tweet from the DSi? *joke*"
[9:50] Brian Leahy: "Spirit Tracks!"
[9:50] Raymond Padilla: "Zelda: Choo Cho"
[9:50] Patrick Klepeck:  "Nintendo and Microsoft nab Facebook support. Sony? #e3"
[9:50] Sterling McGarvey:  "Facebook is fighting not to go out like MySpace. #e3"
[9:50] Brian Leahy:  "Playable at E3."
[9:50] Raymond Padilla: "Is Cammie Dunaway killing the applause? Is she blinding the crowd with her white ensemble?"
[9:51] Brian Leahy: "Back to the Wii now for...?"
[9:51] Brian Leahy: "Who's up next?!"
[9:51] Raymond Padilla: "Satoru Iwata!!!"
[9:51] Brian Leahy: "Iwata-san!"
[9:51] Raymond Padilla: "He's the president of the globe."
[9:51] Raymond Padilla: "Including the Indian Ocean."
[9:52] Brian Leahy: "His suit is spectacular."
[9:52] Andrew Pfister:  "Did I just see a new Metroid logo in that clip? Am I crazy? Someone verify... #e3"
[9:52] Raymond Padilla:  "His hair is awesome."
[9:52] Raymond Padilla: "I think it's detachable."
[9:52] Brian Leahy: "Three groups of gamers - Those who actively play games - Those who never play - Those who might someday."
[9:52] Brian Leahy: "New gamers must come from the group of "maybes""
[9:53] Raymond Padilla: "If Iwata ever gets frustrated with hardcore gamers, I'd love for him to say, "Screw you guys! I'm frickin rich!!! I can buy real Milos!!!""
[9:54] Brian Leahy: "Nintendo's next goal - create individual titles that satisfy every type of gamer."
[9:54] Brian Leahy: "Goodbye, hardcore games?"
[9:55] Raymond Padilla: "Nintendo's real next goal -- Continue to make godly amounts of money."
[9:55] Brian Leahy: "They can't raise or lower the bar..."
[9:55] Raymond Padilla: "Nintendo bought the bar."
[9:56] Raymond Padilla: "For those complaining about Iwata's English: I find his accent more endearing than a French accent."
[9:57] Raymond Padilla: "Time for a poll, methinks."
[9:57] Patrick Klepeck:  "Zelda? Metroid? Something new? Bueller? #e3"
[9:57] Brian Leahy:  "I'm very curious at what type of game would be a game for "everyone.""
[9:57] Poll: Nintendo's press conference has nearly hit the hour mark. What's your grade so far?

[10:05] Raymond Padilla: "The Conduit"
[10:05] Raymond Padilla: "from Sega...but y'all already knew about that."
[10:06] Raymond Padilla: "Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles next"
[10:06] Raymond Padilla: "It would have been nice if a third-party partner used the presser for a big reveal...but was that hoping for too much?"
[10:07] Raymond Padilla: "Deadspace 2"

    Nintendo isn't the only one branching out. Other companies are appealing to the casual market too. Nintendo is just trying to gain more customers. What's wrong with progression? Plus, Mario is awesome. Innovating it for a new system is amazing. Zelda's time will come, you can't just come out with back to back Zelda games anyway, do you know how long it takes to REALLY beat a Zelda game. I'm not talking about running through it, i'm talking about finding everything and exploring everything like a real hardcore gamer does. Zelda is that type of game, so give it some time. Plus, you all know that when the game actually does come out, it's gonna be AMAZING. The new Kingdom Hearts game had a new trailer, Golden Sun DS, come on! What more do you want?!

    intended for mature audiences? I'm over 20, how could NINTENDO of all companies be for mature audiences? at least I'm not the only one the video doesn't work for.

    Why are you all so upset with Nintendo about not announcing enough of their classic franchise games? Even if they realised all those games the wii still wouldn't be a good system.

    I think I might be the first to ask this but, "Where are all the original games Nintendo?" Seriously, the wii is BS. The Wii has enough power to make games look slightly better than what we seen from the original XBOX but the graphics seem to be getting more sub-par ever year. Sure they handle pretty well and the controls are usually polished but it all goes to nothing. Without decent graphics than you won't be immersed. It's like a teeter totter, if the controls are great but the graphics are noticeably bad it won't be balanced.

    But it doesn't really matter because Microsoft's Natal is gonna surpass the wii. The voice recognition technology in Natal is gonna bring so much to the game. Motion technology is limited but that conversation potential with natal could be truly immersive.

    I give Nintendo a very generous D... they're lucky they avoided the F.

    Wow Microsoft destroyed them in their preference conference. If only they had more party, offline four player games for the other consoles. Then wii would really have nothing to offer anymore.

    Nintendo did very well this year. They really had some good titles out their. I will have to say though it could have been better in a couple of more games but i was very satisfied with Nintendo this E3. Keep it up Nintendo!

    All you next generations diaper babies need to hush first of all. Hardcore gamers refers to the fanbase that made the companies what they are, not from playing M-rated games. I'm a hardcore fan of Nintendo(own the nes w/ 2 Zelda games 1 and 2, the light gun, the power glove, Original Mario Bros, Mario 1 and 3(Super Mario 2 was stolen), the Super Nes w/ Super Mario Rpg, A link to the past, Killer Instinct, Donkey kong 1 and 2, N64 w/ 4 controllers and rumble pack, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2, Starfox, the Gamecube w/Zelda collection, Metroid Prime 1 and 2 all Resident Evil games, and a Ds. That's a hardcore fan. Regardless of what you play, we are all gamers. But as gamer who was brought up on the Nes, I feel dissapointed that there are not enough games that give us more actual NEW(not just imported from another system) games. Mario is cool, but don't start off with a remake. Even if the game is lame so what? Make a new game. I understand the quality of games such as Metroid 3 and Super Mario Galaxy, but that's not enough to draw us hardcore gamers, at least not me. So, for now, I'm sticking with my Xbox 360. Yeah they may have a million shooters, but at least they are not just ports or remakes. Miyamoto, don't leave us out in the cold. Please.
