The annual gamer’s hype holiday week is finally here! The big gaming expo E3 is in full swing, and the major companies have all given their press conferences. In Nintendo’s case, as in previous years, the presentation came in the form of the web broadcast titled the “Nintendo Spotlight.” Although I still miss the live press conferences with cheering, the Spotlight was an exciting event. My wife and I did cheering of our own and recorded our impressions directly after the event, which you can see below.
Here is the Video Version, with fresh reactions directly after the show!
E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), one of the biggest video game conferences and annual hype holiday for gamers, is just around the corner. With a new hotly selling console under its belt, Nintendo has a huge opportunity to show off what the Switch can deliver this year. Of course, we can expect more details on Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. We might even get more information on the upcoming ARMSand Splatoon 2. Following the Pokemon Direct, Nintendo might also have something brief on the newly announced Pokken Tournament DX and Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxehas taken the world by storm on the Nintendo Switch. Though there are no new racetracks exclusive to the upgraded version, the game includes all 16 of the original’s DLC tracks. And I have to say, a good number of those tracks are amazing, so it’s great to see them reach a wider audience.
The NES Classic Edition has come and gone. Though many of us have missed out on obtaining this prized miniature console with 30 NES games, a rumor from Eurogamer suggests that Nintendo could already be looking at an SNES Classic Edition by the end of the year. I would absolutely love to see 30 Super Nintendo games all in one tiny system. But what games to include? I created a wish list of the games I’d like to see make it to this hypothetical system. Though there are some unrealistic choices, I put some thought into what games would be more likely than others, so there aren’t any licensed games on here. Nevertheless, there’s a lot of great titles to choose from! Here’s my top 30!
I also put together a video version of this list for your enjoyment!
The Nintendo Switch has arrived! I’ve been excited about the console and its upcominggames since we first heard about it months ago. After a frustrating launch experience, I finally got the new console, and I’ve been playing it a lot. The big question is: does it live up to the hype? After a full weekend of the Switch, here are my thoughts on the console, controller, and launch games.
