Assassin's Creed 3 (hopefully) and Mass Effect 3. Also Skyrim and Diablo 3, I guess.


There is already been a third Assassin's Creed, unless your not counting the last installment.


I'm not discounting it, just that they've said that the major installments come about with a change in setting/character, IIRC.

I think Brotherhood is the 5thish AC installment, anyways. It and the DS games were more about expanding on those settings rather than introducing anything new.


Gotcha, I hadn't played it yet so I was unfamiliar with it's place in the series.

I would agree with Kimberly that the Wii is a continuation of previous Nintendo consoles and the successor of the Gamecube. Just because it's a new innovative device that focuses on motion control. Apart from that functionality, It would share many of the same qualities of past Nintendo gaming consoles.

Danqua, no offense, but your arguement is sinking faster than the gameboy micro did when it came out. The way nintendo's systems are going seems to follow a method resembling this:

1) New system comes out
2) Nintendo develops 70-ish games for the system (and, using simple statistics, we can determine that 10% of them are actually good)
3) While people are busy putting money into this system, nintendo is busy at work finding 1 flaw to fix/1 thing to add.
4) 1 year after step 1, nintendo releases the new/relatively same system, rendering the old system moot.

Nintendo is greedy, period. Sony/microsoft on the other hand, well, they fix more than 1 flaw/add more than 1 idea when remaking a system (see: ps3 with a bluray player).

I just jumped onto the PS3 bandwagon, so hopefully no news of a new console from Sony for at least a few years... On the other hand, I'm not looking forward to anything too much this E3, news on Diablo III would be the only thing that springs to mind.

I doubt we'll hear new console plans. Maybe from Nintendo but I couldn't see Sony and Microsoft talking about them after pushing this Move and Kinect thing so hard.


Honestly I think the biggest thing I'm looking forward to is what I don't know yet. It's always exciting to see new stuff announced on the live stream.

Battlefield 3
Ocarina of Time 3DS
Skyward Sword
Perhaps Paper Mario or Starfox

Not really looking forward to MW3, whether it's shown at E3 or not :\ Unless it's got something huge they change in the COD formula I won't get it.

Oh and Silent Hill Downpour! I've read a few interviews from the developers and they know what they're doing. This could be the best Silent Hill since the 3rd :D

I'm not gonna comment too much on the project cafe. The rumoursmake it sound awesome, too awesome imo. I highly doubt they would make something that big after a success with the wii (great success with inferior hardware), but should the rumours be true, it would be one hell of a console. But better safe than sorry, I'm not expecting something too game changing. I'm more looking forward to 3DS stuff.

Im really hoping for Kingdom Hearts 3. JUST SOME GOD DAMN NEWS ON IT PLEASE!

Also, The new Nintendo, imo will onyl take off if they actually get the hardware right with it in terms of both power and compatability. PS2, XBox, PS3, 360 - All of those have had DVD Drives, why the [bleep] did they add a CD ROM drive into the damn Wii?

Nintendo looks lined up to have the biggest pre-E3 hype for the second consecutive year. I didn't think I would ever type that.

Regarding Wii2/Project Cafe: The only way I see this succeeding is if Sony and Microsoft hold to the 10 year cycles they've proposed for the PS3/360. As in, we won't see their successors until ~2015.

The rumors propose that it is more powerful than the PS360. Wow! Guess what? The PS4/720 or whatever will be more powerful than the PS360 as well. It's called console progression. If Sony/Microsoft pop out with their next consoles in 2013, the Wii2's power equality will be rendered moot.

The online service will need a major revamp to be competitive. Somewhere on the level of XBL/PSN. Others have said it best, but if Wii2's online service is similar to what the Wii currently uses Nintendo will be ignored by most, if not all, major online games and players.

That said, I am still a deep Nintendo fanboy at heart and am eagerly awaiting anything they announce.

In general, here's what I'm looking forward to, in no particular order:

The aforementioned Wii2 announement
Skyward Sword...a minor quibble here. If this gets delayed into 2012 and/or shoehorned into Wii2 (a la Twilight Princess) I may go postal on some key Nintendo employees.
First-party 3DS games that are original. OOT looks great, Star Fox 64 will probably be great, but I'm looking for some original stuff. Kid Icarus, for example.
Skyrim...oh god yes.
The Last Guardian. We know a lot about it already, but more info is always great.

As long as they make the people who bought the Wii upgrade they will do well. Nintendo doesn't have to develop hardware that rivals ps4 and xbox720 and they know it. It will most likely be inbetween next gen and current gen and offer improved motion control to compete with the kinnect and move. The screen in the controller will be a new feature they will advertise and probably knowing nintendo, be their selling point. They will still sell well but I won't buy it.

The only way I would buy from nintendo again is if they focused on an improved Online system and 3rd party dev's.

Wow, I can't believe some of the Project Cafe bashing. The only thing we have are rumors right now, but if true, would put it way above the PS3 and 360 in power. It seems to be leaving the Wii and motion control focus and going towards establishing great ties with 3rd parties to have a great lineup. The rumored controller is simply-put amazing, and would help out many genres. No way is it going to be insignificant. It's easily my most-anticipated news for e3.

Ok I guess I'm out of the loop, what's this "project cafe" [cabbage]? I've heard rumors of a new Wii this year but I hear rumors of it every year.


I highly doubt that Nintendo is going to go that balls crazy with a new console. I don't think their primary market really cares about how their games look.


Who knows, maybe its true. I just think it would be a bit odd of Nintendo to do something like that. Even if they have a really powerful system though I'm not sure I can see them getting a lot of good third party support. Nintendo, traditionally, has never had great third party games.

Well there's a ton of rumors going around, but 01net leaked some details that project cafe is the codename to the Wii successor (doesn't seem likely to be branded with the Wii name). I'll post some of the rumors here:

Rumors


So, basically, we'll find out next week Apr 25/26 during Nintendo's Investor's Meeting (rumored to be announced then with details during e3).

Ocarina of Time 3DS


It's rumored that they removed the dead hands from the game. So the heartpounding suspense in the shadow temple? The interesting bits of the water temple?

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.png

From the few screenshots I've seen, the textures of stone look really great, but the smoothing just looks...god awful to me. I really do think I'm going to pass on this for the release--and it hurts terribly to say that. I love OoT ;_;. Just...don't think I'll be able to get used to a DS adaptation.

Oh and Silent Hill Downpour! I've read a few interviews from the developers and they know what they're doing. This could be the best Silent Hill since the 3rd :D


So long as it's better than Silent Hill Homecoming and at least as good as The Room, I think I'll be satisfied. SH1&2 hold special places in my hearts for their deep storylines, symbolism, and characters. SH3 had some of my favorite soundtracks though.

I'm sad though because I don't think they hired Akira Yamaoka to do Downpour's music. He was the one who did the music for 1-4, and they were some of the best music to be had in videogames. His lack of participation in 5 was one of that game's many...MANY flaws.

WHAT NO DEAD HANDS?! I hope that's a rumor, they totally freaked the [cabbage] out of me when I was a kid. Like, re-deads don't even compare.

And I honestly think the graphics look like re-textured OOT graphics.. seriously, the antialiasing is still not even remotely apparent, and the models look really blocky. I like what they did with the colors though, but they don't count for much :l

I actually played with a 3DS for the first time today. I really like the 3D, it's a LOT more subtle than I was expecting. In a good way.

They already released one song from the game. It isn't too bad.. sounds a lot like the more ambient stuff Akira did. I'm hoping he tries something more risky like the signature songs though, like the Silent Hill 1 theme, Theme of Laura, Room of Angel, etc.

Here's the song



And Project Cafe.. Yeahhh no. I really like my Wii, but if they're JUST NOW surpassing the 360/PS3's graphics and think of that as an accomplishment, then that's honestly hilarious. That hardware is FOUR YEARS OLD!

Project cafe is also pretty unneeded. Don't get me wrong, it'll probably sell, but after the 3ds being released earlier this month, wii2 seems entirely unneeded. Should've waited a year before doing this imo, then we could thoroughly judge the 3ds w/o having to worry about a new system taking over our old one.

Yeah, I highly doubt we still see a new system form sony or microsoft. To be honest we might not hear anything on that for another two years which would actually be good in my opinion.

My main concern about Project Cafe are the rumours about there being a screen in a GC-style controller. The GameCube bit I'm happy with--I think ergonomically the GC was the best controller of its generation, though maybe this is because I'm 5'0"--but the screen worries me because it'll ramp up the price of new controllers, which definitely makes it seem more 'anti-multiplayer' when games are played on a local network simply because new controllers are less affordable.

I guess we'll have to wait until E3 for Nintendo to confirm this rumour as even being true in the first place, and to prove the benefits outweigh the extra cost.

Why the hell would they put a screen on the controller. That makes no sense.
