Some people think that Nintendo is going to pretend that Donky Kong isn't the next big release for Wii U because many of VGX's gamer-viewers will be pulling for software like GTA or TLOU?

I'd be very surprised if Reggie goes in there thinking he needs to show the most UN-colorful-playful-Nintendo game they got in the pipe so he can maybe get those uninterested in Nintendo hardware into thinking that the Wii-U isn't as "Nintendo" as they might have always believed (known).

If he doesn't show some DK I'll be shocked. It's hype time for that game now and Wii U can't afford to skip hype opportunities for any releases least of all what's closest. If he goes back to the Wii U's early messaging that the console is for the "hardcore gamer" by showing the most violent/intense gameplay japan can send him, I'll also be surprised.

I predict Reggie will show pure Nintendo gaming fun, and that's Retro Studio's Donky Kong, through and through.

Nintendo IP IS relevant. And will never be "unacceptable" to be shown to gamers no matter what they play by any third party.

What I'd like to see is an announcement of third party support for some of the games the Wii U has been missing out on. GTA V for example or something along those lines. I'm not holding my breath. Obviously I'm always happy to see a new Zelda or Metroid. Again I'm not holding my breath.

What I expect to see is new footage for Donkey Kong, Mario Kart or Smash Bros. And I'm fine with that TBH.

What I want is a little different than what they'll probably announce.
1) GTA 5 (wishful thinking)
2) Fallout 4
3) Zelda

  • It'll probably be more along the lines of: DK, Mario Kart, Smash Bros. & Zelda

I've been rewatching trailers for DKC: U and now I do agree that this game should be shown at VGX.
The game looks like crazy fun.

When?

I haven't seen or heard any news of it since the "The history of Pokemon" trailer tease. Either way, they have something for WIiU in development. Otherwise they wouldn't need a tech demonstration. (Though it seems very weird to me that they'd show it as a tease in the end of that trailer if wasn't anything special)..

Game Freak confirmed it was only a video and not a game. http://mynintendonews.com/2013/09/25/pokemon-director-masuda-... "That was actually a video which was shown at the Pokémon Games Show, an event in Tokyo last month and it was showing the history of Pokémon games as well as the future." While it could become a game later, I wouldn't use it as "proof" of any existence.

IDK it seems weird for Nintendo to go up there and show DK especially when it's Spike the TV network made for the unrealistic "bro-ed" out man.

I bet some Bayonetta 2 could get some non-Nintendo fans riled up. Also, Bayonetta 2 seems to fit the Spike TV targeted demographic.

Got to have that sex appeal, guns, and explosions for the demographic.

To be perfectly fair, we're talking about a Spike-related award Show. Spike, the channel that bills itself as "The Network for Men", whose slogan used to be "get some action" before external pressure forced them to change it to "Get Real". They are the same network that used to host the VGA's, where if a game had any color that wasn't a shade of grey or brown, it was practically banned from being nominated. While they promise to change things with VGX, they still have a long way to go before they disprove the long held fact that they deserve each and every "dudebro" thrown their way.

@CanisWolfred Thank you. You explained it better than I previously did.

Once again... I think Nintendo would win VGX if they did these 3 vital things:
1: Bayonetta 2 trailer
2. Monolith's X trailer
3: A screenshot for either Legend of Zelda: Wii U or StarFox U or Metroid U then Reggie says, "More details at E3 2014."
THATS ALL THEY GOTTA DO TO WIN AND PROMOTE THE WII U.

@Kodeen Ummm.... No.... >.> Thats not what I meant at all. Reread what @CanisWolfred and others said in this thread to the guy who said we shouldn't call them "dudebro" gamers.

Why do you have to call them anything? The gist of your post was "there are people that have an opinion different than my own, therefore they are automatically untermensch and deserve to be labeled as such."

Exactly, thank you. It's a stupid elitist term, used by people who feel the need to label people who like things different than what they like, and then ironically get angry when they themselves are labeled.

@Blastoise-San I don't think you understood what I'm trying to say. I wasn't validating the existance of the "dudebro" gamer so much as saying that Spike TV deserves every insults you can throw at it, as It's a channel specifically meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

What do I realistically think will be revealed? Or what SHOULD be revealed?

Should:

Some big third party support for the Wii U, like GTA or something
Zelda
Huge Smash Bros trailer with tons of newcomers
Some other big first party game reveal

Likely will:

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze's fourth character
Some lesser known game no one gives a toss about
Something not game related that no one also gives a toss about.

I hope Nintendo doesn't reveal anything more about Donkey Kong. The game looks great and I want to play it if I ever get the chance (considering one of my first games was Donkey Kong on the GBC), but this show isn't the place for that.

They have to show a Nintendo title that is geared specifically toward a more action-oriented, mature audience. Something along the lines of Metroid or Zelda. Since we have no clue if Metroid is even a thing for the Wii U yet and we know about the Zelda game in production, I would hope Nintendo would show off the newest Zelda game, provided it has more of a Majora's Mask/Twilight Princess vibe around it, to coerce the "hardcore" gamers into buying a Wii U. Maybe a Zelda game in general would be enough.

I own a PS1, GBA, GBA SP, Wii (GCN), 360, 3DS, PC (Laptop), Wii U, and PS4.

It seems unlikely.....but I have a strange feeling it might actually be Zelda U. It would actually make a lot of sense.
