Yup. Nintendo blew it. But, just from the quality of the show itself, I'm kinda glad that they didn't do much. This VGX is totally not worthy of a quality Nintendo showcase.

Yeah the show is already horrid it doesn't need to be made any worse by Nintendo.

Hey everyone, look at the bright side. At least we don't have to wait as long for the games we were hoping for him to announce to come out! Oh well. I'm gonna go back to eating a ham sandwich and potatoes and playing Xenoblade Chronicles.

Pretty much. This VGX gig is the embarrassing elephant in the room, not Nintendo. I never felt so alienated with the rest of gaming world than now. One Donkey Kong game = a bazillion of interactive next-gen movies.

I'm going to say this: why couldn't this be saved for the ND that is most likely coming next week?

Man, I was hoping for some Smash news, namely some more newcomers... No offense to DKC, but this is the kinda thing that gets announced online or in a Nintendo Direct. When is Nintendo going to show off some more newcomers? We have had zero shown off since E3.

They should have shown off some new Smash 4 or Mario Kart 7 info. I like DKC, but it seems really low key for something they hyped up.

And of course, still no new F-Zero or Star Fox:(

Can I change my prediction to: "a 3 hour nightmare"?

And the negative reaction to this combined with the unreasonable enthusiasm for the Tomb Raider port is everything that's wrong with the gaming industry.

@WebHead That Cranky announcement would have been much more acceptable for a Nintendo Direct. If Reggie had just shown Bayonetta 2 and Monolith's X then I would be happy. But Reggie couldn't even do that.
What a letdown.
What a shame.

It seems latetly Nintendo's been the best at making bad decisions. Seriously! Donkey Kong! This was clearly not the time or place to present it. They should have shown bayonetta or X. Instead they show Donkey Kong, because I guess they didn't notice the disappointment from e3. Nintendo clearly don't know how to market, create hype, or deliver on the hype and in the past year thats become very obvious! I seriously think Nintendo has no idea whats going on. I wanted it to not be DK, but all the clues pointed to DK, a previously announced game, Cranky kong on cover of box art, the fact he announced he was going to be on VGX on a Donkey Kong centered appearance and Nintendo just being incompetent! A HUGE disappointment and I hope Nintendo feels deeply ashamed because I know I am!

Lol. I have to agree so far. I just turned it on about 10 minutes ago and they were showing a viral video of two obnoxious.. things. Quite embarrassing, I cringed my way through in hopes for something better. I doubt this will happen.

Yeah, but they could have totally stolen the show if they had played their cards right. Even if it was a Smash 4 Video showing off more newcomers, they could have gotten a big push from that, especially if a newcomer like Little Mac(if he's in) was shown off. Just because the show was horrible is no excuse for Nintendo to not show up with their AAA game. They do have a console that is still struggling. Now is not the time to be low-key.

To be fair, the stream I went to was entirely "meh" towards basically everything except for the Borderlands announcement.

Yeah, but now "Laura" Croft has realistic hair, which was something the developers always wanted to do, and next-gen boobies. Tropical Freeze has no next-gen boobies.

@Shaqazooloo Actually, more clues pointed to them showing Zelda than anything else.

Yes. True. But doesn't Nintendo's letdown feel somewhat fitting to the overall letdown that is the VGX awards?

Seriously guys, it's Cranky Kong and it's basically making Donkey Kong play like Ducktales. If you're not impressed with this and are "disappointed" with how much Nintendo have "screwed up" you need to take a long, hard look at yourselves. It's pretty awesome and you shouldn't care what their "image" is. Fact is that anything they showed would have got this sort of BS reaction from the audience that this sort of thing attracts.

Just think on this for a minute. Port of Tomb Raider and CoD with dogs are the things people are impressed with over a character that makes DK play like Ducktales and the newest 3D Mario. Who are the ones missing out on new and great gaming content here?

Wanna know whats funny? DK U is still a game I'm looking forward to playing. Quantum Break/Thief looks so bland, gray, and boring.

In the end I'm not that disappointed, sure it wasn't Zelda. Also based on what I saw, the show looks like trash, I'm kinda glad Zelda didn't appear on here, much rather see it on a Nintendo Direct or E3

I don't like Retro Studios and haven't cared for DK since the 64 days but I don't see why someone would be disappointed. It was pretty obvious that they were going to announced something DK related since that's Nintendo's next big title.

What clues?
If there was a new game to announce I'm sure they would have done it by now.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.
