My first year really following e3 closely but tomorrow will nintendo still have a lot of big announcements like yesterday or will it be mostly quiet like today? What are the chances they will announce a new Metroid tomorrow?

I'd say the chance of that happening is 2%. It won't happen. Maybe next year.

What do you guys think Nintendo could have done better in regards to their E3 strategy. It clearly worked very well for them, but there is obviously room for improvement. To be clear this isn't about the games they showed at E3, but their presentation style.

My list:
-Don't split content across multiple places. After the digital event it was crazy, because you had the Nintendo Minute presenting even more games on one hand, and IGN announcing Devil's third on the other. It was pretty much impossible to keep up with both streams
-Set clear times for new announcements, and convey them clearly to everyone. I don't want to have to keep up with 3 different streams over the course of the entire E3 just to see all the Nintendo games.
-Make sure you don't botch an announcement like you did with Devil's Third and Star Fox U.

Currently Playing: Hearthstone, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate , Okami, Shadow of the Colossus

Overall, I've loved Nintendo's approach. The press conferences were epic and awesome sometimes, but I don't miss them. The new approach makes me feel like I'm actually at E3. Hearing about all the news and games "directly" is great. I hope that Nintendo won't leave this new approach any time soon. Instead I want them to just go farther with it and improve on it.

Well that sucks. Are more game announcements most likely planned for tomorrow or will it be another quiet day?

They could announce stuff, but there is nothing planned like the 3DS press event or the Devil's Third reveal.

I'm tempted to watch the Treehouse stuff for Project S.T.E.A.M but I kind of don't want to spoil it by seeing too much. As I've said a few times, the biggest thing I take away from E3 are the announcements. The extended looks at the games being played aren't really doing much for me. SRPG from Intelligent Systems? I know I'm getting that already

I doubt there will be any more announcements today. I'd love to be wrong though. Two years ago I'm pretty sure Reggie announced that Fire Emblem: Awakening was coming to the West. I'm pretty sure that announcement came on Thursday of E3. So we might get something like that, but anything beyond that I doubt.

Nintendo Demo — 12:00 Pacific / 15:00 Eastern / 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET — This one is particularly intriguing, as Twitch is listing this as an "Unannounced Title"; it's a 20 minute demonstration.

I think it was just Splatoon.

Yes. Those schedules were written before E3 started, so they couldn't put down S.T.E.A.M and Splatoon.

The more I think about it, the more I hate Ubisoft's conference. Like when the Fitness game is one of your highlights, there's something wrong. It's like their entire conference was hit with Titanfall-itis, where no amount of interesting gameplay can distract from boring trend-riding, bro-pandering aesthetic.

It's one of those things that justify being a Nintendo fanboy, because look where Ubisoft is now. Just an amazing coincidence.

Like they have stuff. They have the Quest for Mighty Loot (I think it's called that) they have Rocksmith and Rayman and Prince of Persia and Trackmania and supposedly a new Beyond Good and Evil. Other than that World War 1 game, it was just so bland though.
