Nintendo Shocked Us at E3

A few members of the GamesReviews staff, along with myself, made a number of E3 predictions for Nintendo. In general, our predictions were pretty safe. But that doesn't mean we cannot ridicule those that were so far off the map; unfortunately for myself, I think I take the brunt of the ridicule. Regardless, here is how things worked out. I put a score on each category to see how well I, as well as the staff, did.

Even after what most are calling an excellent showing at E3 for Nintendo, the obvious sales issues are still at the top of everyone's news list, at least when it comes to Wii U.

Just the idea of jumping into the Midst of the battle of Hoth or swinging a light-saber at my enemies in the lava-laden depths of Mustafar was the sort of thrilling experience I knew, being the huge fan that I am, that I could seriously keep coming back to over and over again. So when Lucasarts in its original form was swallowed by Disney, taking Battlefront III (as well as a number of other promising Star Wars games), to the graveyard with it, I was ...

Ubisoft Conference – Our Verdict

Ubisoft is traditionally the least interesting of the four day one conferences, although this year they seem to have turned things around, focusing less on extended musical interludes and more on actual game footage.
