E3 2010 Nintendo Press Conference

t22 
[People in the audience started off with a little quiz while they waited]


So ignoring my better judgement I’ve decided to have dinner early to watch the Nintendo conference; mostly because I’m curious about that 3D DS they may or may not officially unveil here today.

Hah, shit yes, starting off with everyone’s favorite businessman: REGGIE!

Reggie counting his money
[Here, Reggie is using a magic trick to create a device that prints money]

In b4 he starts throwing around numbers because that’s all the Wii has going for it.
Nice, he starts with talking about how ‘technology doesn’t matter’ because what matters is INNOVATION~! because the wii has wiigrfx.

OH EM GEE WHO WOULD’VE GUESSED! IT’S A NEW ZELDA GAME! I DID NOT SEE THIS SHOCKER COMING! In b4 the other REVOLUTIONARY INNOVASHUN are a new Metroid game, a new Mario game and a new..uh..Mario game.

Zelda    Zeldamoto[Miyamoto is always the highlight in any Nintendo conference]

Miyamoto is being awesome as ever though in his fukken BATTLE ARMOR!
Anyway, the graphics seem to be slightly less shit, and with the WiiMotionPlus you can get near 1-1 movement (if you manage to aim it at that retarded wii receiver correctly), I guess, but after seeing Natal this just seems embarrassing due to the inaccuracy and lag of it all. Even Miyamoto himself is struggling with the input lag as he’s demoing the game (and his translator jokingly blaming wireless devices in the audience) (actually…he appears to be serious. So he’s saying I can’t play on a wii while someone in the room is using a laptop? Cool shit, Ninty!).
Also, in true Zelda style, the designs are exactly the same as in the previous games and gameplay seems to be an exact copy as well. It’s fun to watch, but only because Miyamoto is such a happy and enthusiastic dude. Fans of the franchise will probably be pleased though, since it doesn’t deviate from the norm in any area.
The release date is somewhere next year.

I wonder what Reggie has in store next. Hopefully a new IP (Ahahaha, I maek joek!)
OMIGAWD IT REALLY IS A NEW IP!!

 

Sport Rehash 15
[If by ‘New IP’ you mean ‘milking ancient old ideas’ maybe!]


Hah. No. Of course not. It’s another Mario Sport rehash. It’s like Mario Party only with sports called Mario Sport Mix. Looks like a 10 year old PS2 game.
Now he’s gonna start with the numbers. DEY SED WII WAS GONNA STOP SELLING AWESOMELY, WE PROVED DEM RONG! WE SELL LOTSA GAEMS! It’s funny to see how the only company constantly ramming numbers down our throats is the one who technically doesn’t really need to since they’re the indisputable number one right now. Just show us some games instead of forcing these numbers on us, Reggie boi!

Wow, this is a new standard in rehashing history!

 

Mario Party 12
[Enjoying your 125 UH ESS DOLLAHS, Nintendrones?]


Instead of a new Mario Party game, they just changed the characters to Mii’s and called it Wii Party.
INNOVATION!

And a new dancing-with-your-arms game. Great man.

New Golden Sun game for DS. It’s looking pretty nice. Nothing earth-shattering of course since it’s just another sequel, but I’m looking forward to a decent JRPG.

Oh lol. They’re doing a new Goldeneye game because they think they can just mooch off of the name.

 

Goldenshootan
[It’s gonna be hard for Gears of War 3 to top these graphics!]


It’s Wii Exclusive so it looks like shit and is bound to aim like shit. But Wii can probably use a decent shooter, so I wish it good luck.

Here’s something new: Disney Epic Mickey (dat fukken title). I wonder what this will be like.

 

Mickeys EPIC EPIC XTREME
[Poor Smee. He’s sad because he has so little polygons.]


It’s like a Disney Action Adventure game. Reminds me of Rayman and related platforman gaems. There’s also something with paint and removing things from the game world, but it doesn’t look very expansive. This will be nice for 12-15 year olds, probably. I mean, younger kids won’t be able to handle the inaccurate controls, and older people will doubtlessly find this game much too easy and simple. It really reminds me of that one Mickey game on SNES though, and I did used to enjoy playing that a lot, so hopefully a
new generation will enjoy this game.

The way Reggie was talking about Sakurai, it was almost as if he had come up with a new character, but here’s a new Kirby rehash!

 

Kirby
[Lookit all dat cuteness. I think my teeth just rotted away!]


OH GOD I DIED OF CUTENESS! The title is absolutely ridiculous (Kirby’s EPIC Yarn) but it looks so cute I just wanna pick it up and hug it! I love these graphics! The game itself doesn’t look very interesting, but come on, you’ve gotta buy something this cute, right?

Another Dragon Quest game for DS. The previous one has sold OVER 14 MILLION COPIES~!!!!111 so it must be good, right Reggie?

Oh, and here’s that new REVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION I was talking about at the beginning of this conference: a new Metroid.

 

Metroid Other Rehash
[That’s Samus’ brother running away from yet another sequel. Run, Metroid, run!]


Excuse me while I take the care boat to interest bay.
Those Wiigrfx are a disgrace by the way. The few serious games out on Wii suffer from it greatly due to looking like a cheap PS1 game.

AHHHH SHIT NIGGA a new Donkey Kong game!

 

DK
[Wiigrfx actually looking good for a change. Whar all da jaggies at?]


This kind of excites me because I played a lot of DK in my younger years and it looks like and exact replica of the old game. … INNOVATION!
But, no, really, I do like DK and it’s nice to see they dusted that franchise off as well.

Oh, Reggie just admitted that all he’s done is announce rehashes. Maybe now he’ll have some INNOVASHIUN for us?
Ah, it’s the Nintendo 3DS. As was leaked, it will NOT require glasses to play. How does it work? Fucking hell this thing’s got me on the edge of my seat.

 

3DS
[THREE DEE MOTHERFUCKER. No doubt it also prints 3D money.]


So..basically it looks like a normal DS, but it’s FUCKING THREE DEE. The upper screen is now widescreen.
I think the business guy is gonna explain to us now how it works. I wonder if this will work on tv’s and shit too. If so, I am lolling like a motherfucker.
Okay, well, he hasn’t explained how it works yet, but he’s telling us something about the changes made to the design. The 3DS will still have a touch screen, but only the widescreen top screen will be 3D. This won’t be just another redesigned DS, it’s an actual completely new DS with new hardware and shit, so graphics will be better. There’s also a touchpad and a few motion sensors. Also, four cameras so you can take 3D pictures. The people at E3 right now can see it in action, so it’s probably fully functional already. The DS will also be able to play 3D movies (probably downloaded from a online store).

First game announced is ‘Project Sora’ led by Sakurai. It’s a new Kid Icarus game!

 

Icarus
[Looking good there, Kid.]


As it seems right now, Nintendo 3DS seems to be able to pull off Wiigrfx, so it’s looking pretty decent for a handheld. He’s now talking about ‘how 3D will make navigation easier’ which I highly doubt. There will also be a new Nintendogs 3D game. The new DS will automatically download stuff from the intertubes, which doesn’t seem like something to be proud of (since it sucks) but the guy in the suit seems to be very pleased by this.

Some YAWSOME third party title is coming up.
Oh, nevermind, it’s just ports of existing games to the 3DS (*Or probably promises to make new games in existing franchises for 3DS*). Then again, these are some REALLY impressive partnerships. Even MGS games are going to be released on this thing! Also Resident Evil, Ass is Red, and other high profile titles.
We’re still left wanting about how the 3D actually works, but all these game developers appear to be very impressed. And if you manage to impress Kojima-san, you manage to impress me! I am REALLY curious about how this will work. And when will Sony and Microsoft catch up? And when will I get a 3D tv without shitty glasses? And how come Nintendo could come up with this while giant companies such as Sony and Philips couldn’t? I AM VERY CONFUS and there will be no answers for me. But needless to say, I’m quite excited about this.

 

Dawwwww
[Who’s cuter, a puppy, or Miyamoto?]


Also, you can shake hands with a puppy.

Dear god. They’re supplying every motherfucker in that theater with a 3DS and a hot chick to hold it for them! WHY AM I NOT AT E3?

 

Hot chicks
[Doze chicks. Doze DSes.]


Well, Nintendo did better than Microsoft, but only because they have that 3DS thing going on because game-wise it was a piece of shit. Also, as I said before, the Wii is outdated now that Natal has come into play, so the 3DS really is the only thing Nintendo has going for it.
Until Sony releases the 3PSP of course.

Sony is up in about 2 hours. Prepare for Sony’s wagglestick!

👹🇰🇷 #대한민국화이팅 🇰🇷👹 오늘은 못 이겼는데, 끝까지 응원할게! Unlike my home country of the Netherlands, Korea actually qualified for the World Cup, so I thought it was only right for me to go show my love and 열 for my second-favorite country in the world. Gwanghwamun was packed to the brim with people, which made for a really great atmosphere in spite of the buses constantly blocking our view of the screens that had been erected (because closing off streets is WAY too European). Unfortunately, we didn't manage to win, but I think we played a pretty decent match tonight. No matter what the future holds for the Korean team, I'll always be cheering for them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #WorldCup #WorldCup2018 #SwedenKorea #KoreaSweden #Cheer #Football #Soccer #Voetbal #Gwanghwamun #대한민국 #월드컵 #월드컵2018 #축구 #한국스웨덴 #스웨덴한국 #거리응원 #응원 #광화문 #광화문광장
TY usually tries to slip out of the studio as quickly as possible, so I was surprised to see him having a small fan meeting after the matches today. He played some amazing games against GuMiho, and as a fan I couldn't be happier to see that his form has been improving again. He's always been my favorite Terran, so I hope he'll be continuing on this path to success. The rematch for the 2016 GSL Season 1 finals between TY and Zest is slated for coming Wednesday, so definitely come down to the AfreecaTV studio if you have the opportunity! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Afreecatv #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Zest #Protoss #TY #Terran #Progamer #Progaming #Gamer #Gaming #eSports #Signature #스타 #스타크래프트 #스타2 #스타크래프트2 #전태양 #주성욱 #테란 #프로토스 #e스포츠 #게이밍 #프로게이머 #게이머 #아프리카tv #싸인
Thanks to my thesis taking up pretty much every waking hour of my time, I haven't been able to see any GSL matches this season. Thankfully, now that I successfully completed my defense, it is once again 스타크래프트 타임! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #Afreeca #Afreecatv #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Zest #Protoss #TY #Terran #Progamer #Progaming #Gamer #Gaming #eSports #스타 #스타크래프트 #스타2 #스타크래프트2 #전태양 #주성욱 #테란 #프로토스 #e스포츠 #게이밍 #프로게이머 #게이머 #아프리카tv #아프리카
"We laymen have always been intensely curious to know ... from what sources that styrene being, the creative writer, draws his material, and how he manages to make such an impression on us with it and to arouse emotions of which, perhaps, we had not even thought ourselves capable." - Freud, 1908 My thesis on the use of Mentor Texts to teach creative writing is finally done! I successfully completed my defense today, and will be making the final revisions in the next couple of days. It has been a long and exhausting ride from the drawing board to the final line of text, but I think I've come up with something to be proud of. A big thank you to my friends and family, who supported me throughout my two year academical adventure. And an even bigger thank you to my thesis advisor Dr. Lim Hyun Woo, without whom my thesis wouldn't have been possible, and to Lee Ji Yeon, without whom I might not have even made it this far. The road ahead is still long and full of difficulties, but at least the first big hurdle has been taken. Bring on the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Thesis #Thesisdefense #Pass #Passed #HUFS #TESOL #Education #EnglishEducation #Hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #University #외대 #한국외국어대학교 #한국외대 #논문 #논문발표 #졸업 #합격 #영어교육
There's a reason I haven't been posting much lately, and that reason is that it's thesis season in Korea right now. As a Master student in his last semester, I am very much feeling the pressure! I wrapped up the data collection for my thesis about a week ago, and the entire thing should be finished and submitted in...three days from now. So basically, all I've been doing for the past few weeks has been sitting in front of my computer, looking at data, listening to smooth jazz playlists on youtube and praying I somehow manage to get all of this stuff together in time to graduate. Let's hope I'll get a chance to shoot more interesting things than just this picture of some flowers I found on my 3AM life-contemplating walk very soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Thesis #thesisdefense #writing #homework #graduation #HUFS #TESOL #Education #university #flowers #midnight #night #painting #studentlife #한국외국어대학교 #한국외대 #외대 #논문 #논문발표 #논문준비 #연구 #졸업 #꽃 #학생생활
This weekend the 156th Seoul Comic World was hosted in SETEC in Gangnam. Comic World is a little like the Japanese Comiket: a large event where individual artists or art circles are given the chance to show off and hopefully sell their work to a huge community of anime and manga fans. Unlike Comiket though, Comic World is hosted at least once a month, either in Seoul or in Busan. And tickets are only ₩5000! One of the greatest things about this event is how all the goods are so cheap. Cards usually go for ₩800 or ₩1,000; posters for ₩3,000; key chains for ₩5,000 and you can even get little plastic cutouts of characters you can put on your desk for about ₩15,000. The other greatest thing are the cosplayers: people who worked for weeks or months on a costume to show off their love for a certain character. Unfortunately, the bad weather yesterday meant there weren't many opportunities for taking pictures, but when the weather's good you'd be in for a treat! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Seoul #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul_Korea #ComicWorld #SeoulComicWorld #Anime #Manga #Comics #Deadpool #Spiderman #Ash #EvilDead #Cosplay #Marvel #Avengers #Pokemon #서울코믹월드 #코믹월드 #아니메 #만화 #코믹 #데드풀 #스파이더맨 #애시 #이블데드 #코스플레이 #마블 #어벤져스 #포케몬
