@gcunit Good point. Everyone now is expecting BotW2 to be as good as BotW, so no one is expecting to be blown away as much.

@gcunit Well Smash Ultimate was given a similar amount of time at E3 2018. Nintendo seems to massively focus on 1 game when they don't have many new games incoming.

Ugh I hope not. Any E3 focused on a single game is just no fun

I'm sure not many peoples thinking about :
1. Stranded Sails: Explorers of the Cursed Islands
2. Re:Legend
3. Summer in Mara
4. Sikanda
5. Farm Folks
6. Ninjala

@Anti-Matter Stranded Sails has a great aesthetic, but I'm not too confident the game will actually handle all that well. Looked a bit clunky and unconvincing in some of the announcement trailer I just watched.

Considering that BotW is my least favorite entry in the Zelda series, I have high expectations for its sequel.

Honestly, next E3 will probably have BotW2 (assuming it's really farther in development than they let on like everyone thinks), Bayo 3 (enough time's passed that it won't be taking away from Astral Chain to start that campaign), Mario & Luigi or Paper Mario (but if it's Paper Mario, it's not made by IS for better or for worse), Mario Golf (if it's not out by then), a major 3rd party exclusive, and... I'll go with a new 2D Metroid from MercurySteam and a remaster/remake of a classic title, one of which will have been announced earlier in the year.

Speaking of which, has there been any chatter at all on what MercurySteam's been up to since Samus Returns? They release a game every 3 years on the dot typically, so I'd say the chances of us getting something from them at least is pretty high.

@Grumblevolcano The single game focus thing is just dreadful. I think they need to understand that most people actually watching E3 are watching all of it, and the videos are archived, there's no actual reason to cover the same game over and over for hours and hours. And with third party pace really picking up, they have too much platform content to cover overall to waste time repeating themselves on a single product. I think that strategy was more advantageous in the WiiU era into early Switch, trying to get platform attention. Now they have a captive audience to sell tons of things to.

The single game thing only works with something as amazing and hugely anticipated as Breath of the Wild. Had they tried that with anything else, it would have destroyed their E3. Hell, it practically ruined their E3 presentation last year when they spent an inordinately long time on Smash.

This BotW sequel may be as good or better than BotW, but it won't have the same level of anticipation or excitement behind it, so unless Nintendo does something absolutely crazy with it, I don't see it carrying their entire E3 presence.

They ported their competitive multiplayer game Spacelords to PS4 earlier this year.

That's the most recent news that I can remember.

@Grumblevolcano I will forever remember that game as the one that disappointed me when I realized it wasn't Bayonetta.

It could be good though I guess? I'll take a peek at the video sometime next week.

Aw yeah, spending the afternoon transferring all my various region accounts and save data for 400+ games from my Switch V1 to my brand spanking new Switch V2 and 400GB micro sd card. Then I have to redownload all my digital purchases and various game updates. Then after all that, consider downloading DCUO, all though I shouldn't...considering my already sizeable backlog.

Life if good.

@Magician Always feels nice setting up a new device, at least for me. ^^

.......what's even the point of this pricing model

Nintendo. You stubborn, greedy idiots

The SNES lineup better blow my mind if I have to pay extra to even access that console's library

The pricing tier rumors aren't that surprising to me, if you look at Nintendo's history. They always charge as much as they can, because they can.

I'm ok with paying more to get more honestly. Of course, id prefer not to. But when push comes to shove and you put two models in front of me..

1) only nes games for $20/yr
2) snes and/other for $25 or $30/year

I'll take option 2 in a heart beat

@BlueBlur101 Well that would suck. So I wouldn't be able to get SNES games for... over another year when my current one expires? I'm not losing on all that time I have stored up.
