I know right? They said more news about the game would be given close upon the release date, but we haven't even got that yet. I'm really interested as to what the story is. Pikmin 3 is my most anticipated Wii U title, which is why I'd like to know more about relatively soon at least...

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

@Pikminsi Yeah, there was a lot to play, I didnt even get to play everything, I missed Scribblenauts, Batman, and ZombiU. Anyways Pikmin 3 was played with the Wii Remote & Nunchuk. It played exactly like the first 2 entries on Wii, and the Screenpad features the map even if your not playing the game with it. Only 2 stages were available, one where your goal is to collect as much fruit as possible and one where you must battle a humongous centipede covered in crystal armor. The graphics were VERY impressive, it moved very smoothly and had the photo-realistic appearance the Pikmin franchise is famous for. There didnt appear to be able to create more pikmin via Onions, mainly because there seemed to be no Onions at all but rather there where large groups of Pikmin hiding in tall grass and behind barriers which will follow you once called with the classic whistle mechanic. Also only 2 species of Pikmin were available, Red & Rock. In the end, this was my most favorite game available out of all demos.

That's good to hear. It sounds so fun! Nintendo Land also seems fun, and I've heard plenty about it. I just haven't heard much about the Donkey Kong attraction. Did you play that one?

I felt they would explain more about the game recently and I'm a bit disappointed. A new trailer or something would be nice.

Alas, no every time you come up to one of the Nintendo Land demos they make you play 1 of 2 random attractions I played almost everyone that was offered EXCEPT the Donkey Kong & Animal Crossing games, every time I went up to play I just had to get the other one of the 2. of all attractions I played Metroid Blast, Luigi's Ghost Mansion, & Takamaru's Ninja Castle.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

FIRST THINGS FIRST: I have never played a single Ninja Gaiden game in my life up until that one demo! I was given the Wii U Pro Controller to play with and from what I learned the basic mechanics worked as such: X is for Quick Attack, Y is for Strong Attack, Right Trigger pulls out the Bow & Arrow. The gameplay was ok, but then again I didnt know what to expect because again, I've never experienced playing a Ninja Gaiden game. I didnt really enjoy how long it took to kill a single enemy, you have to constantly slice and slice and slice until you finally get through 1 enemy, and when you do, it becomes a literal blood bath. Ryu seems to move at a sluggish pace but moves quick when you click a certain button(I forgot which) that makes him quickly dash, it makes you go a little faster but it just seems kinda wonky having to constantly press the button. I died alot as well, that entirely my fault as a newbie to Ninja Gaiden.I didnt get that far so thats all I have to say. This game was alright from the demo, not the best thing featured at Nintendo's booth, but this game still holds potential. Also, graphics were pretty damn cool! B)

I love how long it takes to kill a single enemy in Ninja Gaiden games. I don't like enemies how I like my easy squeeze cheese. :P Just cannot button mash your way through Ninja Gaiden games. You actually got to think a little bit and come up with a strategy to take out the enemies. Thanks for the mini review, it its good to hear that it is going back to its roots! :D

I am so happy you asked about The Wonderful 101! First off: it was a very long demo, 10 minutes! So basically the controls seemed so complex but you get used to them almost instantly! On the Wii U Screenpad the controls are this: The left control stick takes control of your mob of heroes moves them around like any other game, the B Button makes every one jump when you need to reach a platform, the Left Trigger has all the heroes take the form of a gelatinous flan that protects them from any oncoming attacks, the Right Trigger makes all the heroes join together into a giant slinky that dodges oncoming attacks, the X Button has the characters perform a simple attack where they barrage the enemy like Pikmin by continuosly hitting like little Pikmin tend to do, the A Button(or Y, i forgot) has the heroes perform a special attack that varies depending on what you draw on the screen, you can draw a circle that will make the heroes special move be turning into a giant fist that hits really hard against the enemy, drawing a straight line will change the heroes special move by turning into a sword that slices through enemies, and drawing a sideways capital L will have the special move make the heroes turn into a giant gun that will fire large bullets at the enemy. The more perfect you draw these 3 shapes the stronger the attack will be and you can switch special attacks instantly just by quickly drawing the shape of the desired special attack. However, using the special attack to much will cause the heroes to lose energy and will not be able to do special attacks again until their "batteries recharge", in the meantime you will need to use the simple attack which doesn't drain your power at all but isn't nearly as powerful. At some points you will encounter civilians in need of help, when your near them you can draw a circle on the screen that will make the civilians turn into heroes to join you. Also, there will be times when you will enter buildings, when you do the screen goes blank and you must play on the screen on the controller, during so you will have to solve puzzles within the building to open the door on the other side so your team can get further. Eventually during the demo I was forced to play the boss battle stage where I was up against a humongous robot, its weakpoints were 3 spheres on its hands that you must break, once one hand was destroyed you must draw a line on the screen to make the heroes form a chain that your main character will walk across to get to the other hand and you will have to do the same thing you did on the first hand. The graphics were pretty good for level design but the heroes themselves seem sorta blocky, but you wont really notice unless the camera gets really close to them. Lots of destruction happens in the game, houses, buildings, trucks, bridges, streets, helicopters, jets, tanks, cars, everything just gets aniliated in the heat of battle against these aliens and their giant robots which look incredible. In the end I LOVED THE WONDERFUL 101, a must buy for me! :D

I think the 101 is going to be an underrated game...no one ever talks about it. :c
But yeah I'm looking into it too, looks like a lot of fun.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

Sorry for asking so much, but how were 101 and Game and Wario?

And as for Game & Wario, this WarioWare game has changed a lot more from its past installments. This time there are no quick 5-second-long microgames, but rather just one long minigame from each character. I was only allowed to play one because they would take too long to play more than one and lots of people are waiting behind me to play. So I chose Wario's game, "Arrow" In this game, the goal was to destroy robots that want to take my 4 strawberries that were on my controller's screen, the robots were on the TV Screen. On my controller there was a bow & arrow as well that I must stretch back and let go to lauch, I have to move around the screenpad like a wii remote to aim for where I want my arrow to hit. Hordes & hordes of robots show up that I must destroy before they reach the bottom of the TV Screen, if a robot does make it past the TV's screen it will show up on my controllers screen getting closer and closer to my strawberries, I can stop the robots on my controller by smashing them with my finger by taping them on my controller. sometimes, when there are too many robots to handle you can hit a land mine that is on the ground that will take out all robots near it, also if too many are getting close to the bottom of the TV Screen, I can rub the tip of my arrow that looks like Wario's pink nose to sneeze and blow back all the robots and buy myself more time. In the end, Game & Wario was a very unique and very fun game that was definately the strangest game Nintendo had to offer at their booth.

Yeah, it probably will be sadly. Mostly I think it'll be overshadowed by games like NSMBU, NLand, LCU, Pikmin 3, and a lot of the other good looking launch window/launch day games.

@MrWalkieTalkie thanks for the info :) I can't wait for these games. Pikmin is a return to a great series, Nintendo Land looks like it has fun multiplayer, And Game and Wario and Wonderful 101 sound like fun, unique games.

As for Wonderful 101 being underrated, it's probably because not many have heard of it since it was after the conference at E3 (not a smart move in my opinion)
