Why would Nintendo even let Pachter into their press conferences at this point

Just wanted to chime in here before the conference starts about how much I have enjoyed these threads. They have had their ups and downs but seeing the response that Nintendo still draws has been great. No way the next Playstation or Xbox gets threads like these.

See everyone on the other side, I hope our bodies are ready.

So irresponsible. Don't they know that only toddlers will be watching this press conference?

BUT SPIKE IS A MAN'S CHANNEL. IT CONTAINS MATURE MANLY CONTENT FOR MANLY MEN. EXPLOSIONS, GORE, BABES.... IT'S ALL FOR MEN.

Seriously that's how they promote their channel.

I'd let those aliens do what they want, this is more important.

Are IGN not showing the Nintendo conference or something? Every other time I've gone there they've had a conference link right on the front page for EA/Sony/Ubisoft ect, but there's nothing there for Nintendo.

ugh, fuck this weather. Storm has knocked my DirectTV fuzzy. I really wanted to watch this on my HD TV. Off to a stream, I guess.

My body isn't ready for Pikmin. It was the 1st 3D game I played extensively (grew up on Gameboy) and it's been 8 years and three e3 conferences. I can't take it, why is this making me so hyped?
