E3!!
« on: May 19, 2005, 10:29:03 AM »
Wow no ones started a thread yet!

I love May, its like the middle xmas for me games wise :D highlights (for me) so far have been wholly nintendo (l)

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess



This is going to be such an incredible game for so many reasons! Rather than me blathering on about all of them go over to IGN and check out over 30 minutes of gameplay videos with comments from Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma (who is producing this Zelda)

NEXT! 2 New consoles!

GBA Micro



Yes, it is THAT small! Game Boy Micro measures a mere 4 inches wide, 2 inches tall and 0.7 inches deep and weighs just 2.8 pounds.

REVOLUTION!!





There's still ALOT of features unkown about this but one thing which should please every one on this forum is that with nintendo's FREE online service, their entire back catalogue stretching back to the NES willbe available on the revolution for download via wifi! Whether this means the games themselves will be free or not is not known but its an exciting prospect.


One thing which may well interest Phoenix too...

I hadn't seen the design for the console yet, looks really cool actually, opposed to the xbox 360 and playstation 3 :(

Isnt it :D plus, lookie!



Backwwards compatible with the Gamecube :D The one disc slot takes both new revolution games and regular dinky GC discs. Thing is, we're yet to actually learn what the revolution is (as in the control mehtod and other things which im sure are hiding in its sexy little body) and i doubt we will at E3. Here's hoping Nintendo bring back spaceworld this autumn and spill all the beans there!

Even though I'm not a console fan, I have to admit that the Nintendo Rev really looks exciting.. and that's saying a lot coming from me, I'm interested in seeing all the features it will end up having.. the backward compatibility really is a pleaser on my side, much better than what the xbox 360 promises, you may have to actually buy the old games anew with adjusted software to the console, how lame is that?! Hallelujah for Nintendo, boo Microsoft. :)

Really looking forward to the Revolution, more so than the PS3.

Really wanna learn more about downloading old games. I hope they aren't going to charge for them :-\

Maybe it'll be a one time fee of a buck apiece, I dunno. Not that I'd mind, it's cheaper than ebay. ;)

Hopefully they make it backwards compatible with the SNES and N64 as well! ;D Having them available for download, at least. ;P

NES, SNES and N64 games are definitely part of the download service. I've heard from some places that Gamecube games are too, but I'm fairly skeptical about that news.

Regardless you'll be able to play games from every major Nintendo home console because of the backwards compatibility with the Gamecube.

That Revolution looks pretty cool.  I hadn't planned on getting any next gen for awhile, but now I hear about these downloads on the Revolution and MGS 4 designed, produced and directed by Hideo Kojima (!!!!!) for the PS3. *Sigh* decisions, decisions.
She's back. She's proud. She will overcome!

Yeah, and consider that Nintendo hasn't decided whether or not the downloads will be free. Just the fact that they're considering to make them free means that if they do in fact sell them, they'll be at a very low price, or they could just be free, in which case Revolution would be the best system ever.

Ugh this makes it very difficult for me, because I was just about to break my alliegiance to Nintendo and go for a PS3 after being screwed constantly by Nintendo. Even Nintendo can't screw this feature up though, even if the Revolution games themselves play like Virtual Boy 2.

That would normally be a good idea except the inital rumors are that PS3 will cost a king's ransom ($465!!). So I probably could only afford one unless I really start saving up and get a job (don't have one since I'm only 16 and lazy ;))

I'm a Nintendo-only kind of girl, and I can't WAIT!! XD I was spending so much time over the last year drooling over the new Zelda, I barely paid attention to NR, but now I'm totally stoked for both! :D:D:D

I was a Nintendo fan/lover, but had to get a PS2 for the Final Fantasy series :-\

Maybe I'll get lucky and they'll bring FF back to Nintendo XD

Nintendo Revolution and FF

Looks like they're interested in Nintendo, again. ;) Wonder why. :P

And yeah, things like the FF series and Kingdom Hearts and such made me want a PS2, I'll admit it. :P

I think Nintendos online plans for the reovlution and DS are going to be pertty innovative. Latest word is that Animal crossing come out in August for the DS which is the first online title so we should be hearing some pretty detailed plans soon! Lol i should of named this shameless nintendo fanboys/fangirls only please ;p

Yeah, I'm a shameless fangirl, too. XD I was actually trying to figure out how to buy Nintendo-themed t-shirts, but can you believe a big, popular entertainment company like Nintendo doesn't have their own store?!?! Not even online! They have a bunch of low-grade retailers who apparently have license to make and sell stuff with their logos and whatnot, but it really is not very professional at all. :( I was so disappointed,
