But it requires that you wear this:

That would make perfect sense. Plug in the cradle to recharge, or use the cradle to keep it flat for the killer app Otthello.

Probably a Dragon's Dogma port, since that is complete now, assuming its not complete shit. And a fighting game at least. I wonder if the HD versions of Ace Attorney are in the cards as well for the Wii U eshop.

With DD finished they'll have a lot of staff to move around and working on new projects.

We'll either see it at Nintendo's conference or on the show floor.
Not before.

Their stage last year was AMAZING. I honestly just hope they keep it like that. The intro to the 3DS games... my god that looked good.

EDIT: Nintendo really should acknowledge "My body is ready!" :P

Lol. Just a quip when showing off Wii U Fit. "Are you ready to step on the scale, Reggie?" "Yes. My body is ready!"
Third-Parties finally being able to show what games they're launching on Wii U will be a great part of E3. Looking forward to seeing what Treyarch does with Black Ops 2 on Wii U. The RTS part may just be on the touchscreen.

I doubt they'll do the orchestra again, which was a really cool addition, but they should have something big.

Pretty much impossible for a repeat of 2008 for two reasons.

1. No more Cammie.
2. Nintendo apologized for that E3, so yeah...

As for Scott, he may be too new at the company to get on stage, but we'll see. He could certainly be the new blood they need in NA.

The stage this year better be epic beyond all imagination of our meager minds. Just all the creativity, precision, brilliance of the minds of NCL distilled and whittled down into one crystalline and focused message.

It needs to be a masterpiece of concision, acres of impenetrable biz/market bullshit at past E3's have to be whittled down to a simple pithy definition of what this E3 2012 show is all about. When you strip away all the pretentious hogwash about market leadership, and innovation and all the other flim flam, that's what you'll be left with "Your Body isn't ready, never was, and Nintendo reigns supreme"..."Wii U Xmas 2012".

Cammie joined near the end of 2007 and she was on stage at E3 2008. :P

I'm extremely excited for Nintendo will reveal for the Wii U. I almost don't care about Sony and Microsoft's presentations, but that was my thought process last E3. Can't believe we're almost a month away from E3, crazy how quick a years passes by.

We'll see. Considering what they showed, they at least seem to be on the right track. The one MP mode that was a cross between an RTS and FPS was pretty interesting despite being early.

I would have been happier with RedSteel 3 at launch

there must be huge amount of changes to this game by now so I'll wait and see if it grows on me... I just did not want to play some dude going out at night around his block hunting alien rats

They did say there would be a variety of enemies so I think that's a little unfair to assume that on one demo stage.

I see that being saved for Nintendo's presser.

Well the Zelda demo was made in a short time on unfinished hardware using Gamecube assets. They did pretty good with that.

BG made me realize something very important to my E3 GAF enjoyment. Several major third parties will have presentations before Nintendo. Will they simply pretend the Wii U doesnt exist until the next day and have all their game announcements wasted in a sizzle reel at Nintendos presser? No way to spend time on the non exclusive ones on stage.

Obviously its only a day and not that big of a deal, but i would love to see some demos/videos of whatever ports the Wii U will get this fall. That way, GAF can have its inevitable and dark comparison debate before we are cleansed in the light of actual surprises and reveals at Nintendo on Tuesday.


PS: How many days early was Nintendo's secret E3 press event last year where the first real hands on with the Wii U controller happened?

Well, let's be honest... at least when Cammie talked about engaging people outside the core audience, you BELIEVED her.

Part of the reason that people thought Wii would flop, in my opinion, was the delivery of the message by a slick-talking middle-aged male executive in a suit... we thought he was selling us a line. And why shouldn't we think that? Wouldn't be the first time it's happened, and the method in which Reggie speaks (i.e. like a slick-talking middle-aged male executive) doesn't help any.

Cammie Dunaway basically showed the world what they were pretending wasn't happening.

If the content of her speech at 2008 wasn't so shamelessly aimed, I find she was a better public speaker than Reggie. Shame that she was trotted out with the sole purpose of making people hear what Reggie wasn't getting to sink in. She could have been great.

I want another woman on stage at E3. It'd make my day.

Oh really? Didn't know that. There were press conferences before Nintendo's E3 press conference in '06 for companies that had Wii games in development? I assumed that Nintendo would give them the go ahead, but I'll be very happy if they make them hold on to it. :)

I really do feel Cammie had the potential to be awesome. Hell, she was awesome later in her time at Nintendo. I remember some fantastic interviews involving her.

Having a major partner like that devote significant time to your new machine seems like a great thing. Maybe Nintendo will have a minor pre E3 reveal with final name and some undisclosed hardware features highlighted etc. Then actual game announcements and demos on tuesday?

Unlikely, but hey, i can dream.
