Endless Ocean 2. Includes attacking sharks and eels, defending yourself with a tranquilizer gun, treasure hunting, and WiiSpeak support.
Ooooh, that sounds great! Please, NOA, promote this one, will ya? The original could have been a bit hit with the casuals - if they had known about it...

A new Metroid and Super Mario Galaxy are cool surprises but they don't in any way compensate for Nintendo's poor showing. Mario Galaxy doesn't seem to do anything new and the Metroid title looks good, but feels like a half measure compared to Prime.

Terrible conference.
The games(and how well they sell) are what matters in the end and to the public. E3 conferences are watched by industry people, hardcore players, and related player members lol

I mean, if how well an E3 Conference went was the tell-tale of video gaming, then going by last year's results 360 should be #1 and Wii should have sold HALF of what it did

Can't seem to find a thread about the Miyamoto round-table. What was discussed? Anyone got some kind of overview? I would very much like to know :) I know about the showing of art-work of Zelda Wii and that he answered some questions about Galaxy 2 but that's pretty much it.

I just realized... no DSi VC.
I wish we had seen more DSi software as well (outside of thinly veiled tech demos) but it's pretty apparent that Nintendo through it out there for some reason with no real interesting software or compelling reason to buy it yet.

I wish Wii Sports resort would redo the original wii sports games with motion+ controls.

Primarily so I wouldn't have to swap discs to play bowling when friends come over.

Wii Sports Resort has Golf and Bowling with Motion+ in them.
Tennis?

Because I don't much care for the other games.

Anyway, that is good info to know. This will be my first wii purchase since Sunshine.

Red Steel 2

The first thing I noticed about swinging the MotionPlus around is that there's a noticeable delay between moving the Wiimote and seeing tht movement replicated onscreen. I'd swing the Wiimote as hard as I could and then, about a half-second after I stopped my arm, the swing would commence onscreen.

As I said in my hands-on with the game, I still felt like button presses had been switched out for specific waggles (as was the case with the first Red Steel). The only real difference was that the game could now distinguish between "weak" slashes and "strong" ones -- and even then, it couldn't distinguish between the two particularly well.

If I hadn't been told before picking up the Wiimote, I literally would not have known that Red Steel 2 utilized the MotionPlus.
This is worrying... I hope they can fix it before launch.

Did we ever get a release date for Layton 2 in the US?

Really wanted to see what Retro is working on, hope they reveal it soon. Also, isn't Factor 5 working on a Wii game or two? And since I really loved Wave Race on the GC(and 1080 was pretty good), I was hoping that after three years NST would finally have something to show for the Wii.

August 24th is listed on the Fact Sheet from the Press Site. Also, Amazon leaked it by mistake not too long ago remember =D

Can't wait!

I came here to point out that Denise Kaigler is awesome. Her interview with Game Trailers is great, she should take the stage more often.

Part 1
Part 2
I would love to see Kaigler taking some of Cammie's time on stage. She knows how to answer those questions and she has a great personality. I thought her answer to why the Wii sales were dropping off was handled incredibly well, with an answer that makes sense.
