True_Avery Posted June 3, 2009 Share Posted June 3, 2009 OK, Jeff and I were given the wrong directions by the convention and we wasted $50 on a taxi ride to nowhere. When we finally got back and we were corrected by the -other- info staff, we arrived at the Nintendo Press meeting in the middle. We were told that all we truly missed was a new Super Mario Bros for the Wii, and the next Wii Fit (which I don't think anyone here gives a damn about). We came in at the introduction of third party games and most of them were underwhelming so I'll cut to the good stuff: New Super Mario Bros. New Mario Vs. Donkey Kong on the DSI, download only on June 8th. FlipNoteStudio was announced, which is a frame by frame drawing board to make flip-frame animations and send them to friends. The DSI will also soon uplink to facebook and allow you to upload pictures taken on the DSI directly to your facebook. Warioware DYI (Do It Yourself), a new customizable game for the DSI. Create games from scratch, and play them out or send them to friends. Similar to littlebigplanet. Nintendo claims it is the easiest game to create new games in. NINTENDO'S GAME PLAN: People who never play games, will never play games. There are 3 types of gamers: Active Maybe Never Nintendo wants to focus on the maybes in their marketing and game making. The reasoning behind this was actually pretty interesting: 295 million people play video games in the US and Japan combined. 149 maybes in the world, and Nintendo wants to get them into gaming. By bringing more people into games, you get a better picture of games by society, and thus more freedom to create, share, and play games and overall benefiting the market. They said that they did not want to cut out the hardcore crowd, so they pointed to these games for the Wii: The Conduit Dead Space: Extraction Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles. Nintendo also announced 2 major games: Super Mario Galaxy 2. More about this game later, as I will hopefully play it on the showfloor tomorrow. Set for 2010. Metroid: Other M, which is being developed by Team Ninja. The cinematic was amazing. Also, Samus talks in this game and that is all I need to know to start playing this. Set for 2010. NOW FOR THE BIGGEST BESTEST ANNOUNCEMENT OF NINTENDO THIS CENTURY: The Wii Vitality Sensor! IT MEASURES YOUR HEART RATE AND STUFF Now, stare in amazement. The end. That was Nintendo this year. That is it. Other than the new Metroid (half because it looks awesome and half because I have an e-crush on samus), this was about as disappointing as the Sony conference. But, then again, the Wii Vitality Sensor. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
