Live Text: European Gamers Summit 2010
Posted by Anthony Dickens
We're LIVE from London for Nintendo's European Gamers Summit 2010
From 10am onwards we'll be live-blogging from Nintendo European Gamers Summit 2010 at the O2 Arena, London. What will Nintendo have in store for us? Mario Galaxy 2? Sin & Punishment 2? Or perhaps a shock announcement, like Pilotwings Wii or Pikmin 3?
There's no need to refresh this page - via the wonders of the internet (and a few magic beans) it will update automatically before your very eyes, timestamps should display in local time to your computer.
We'll be getting some hands-on time with some of Nintendo's upcoming games after the event, so keep your eyes on the site over the next few days.

Who'd like to buy a 4GB Nintendo branded USB stick? Only joking, as if we'd sell :smiley: http://twitpic.com/159klm
We hope you enjoyed our live text report. Stay tuned for more a more detailed report later today :smiley:
Well that's it for us for the day. We're gonna go hit Starbucks and charge the iPhone
The Zapper control scheme works really well, there's lots of variety in the gameplay... One to watch out for!
I really enjoyed S&P2. It's as manic as ever, but is much less confusing than N64 original
Now all that is left to do is play Sin & Punishment 2
More impressions to come later tonight. Watch this space!
So is another stage where you have to jump from red tiles to blue tiles which disapear as you spin
The chilli eating Yoshi stage is fiendish beyond belief
Galaxy 2 is amazing. Feels bigger and better than ever
Back in line to play Galaxy 2
Lunch was very continental and hearty! We're both stuffed now
Need to grab some lunch now. More Metroid insights later today in our big write-up
Other M is really cool. It's still "Metroid" but with a refreshing twist. Perfect reboot perhaps!
Samus is a curvey babe
Watching trailer on 60" LCD. Looks amazing. Almost HD! :stuck_out_tongue:
But point Wiimote at TV and it goes FPS
Controlled with Wiimote NES style. 2D style
It's cinematic action, lots of cutscenes
Other M story follows Super Metroid
Abort mission!! Orange wristbands going to playtest Metroid Other M :smiley:
Just joined the queue to play Mario Galaxy 2. It's VERY long!
Looks good for a Wii game thou. Lots of stuff to see and do
Just uses classic controller. Lots of annoying loading times between areas
Played some multiplayer Monster Hunter Tri... Controls take a while to get used to
It's region locked for the moment thou. Euro can't play USA
Monster Hunter Trihas free wifi play
She was a good sport about it though
Dazza just kicked Pandora's ass on Photo Dojo!
Not our timeslot for Metroid yet. Can't wait though!
Take custom sound effects too. Could this be the next big thing in social handheld gaming?
Have to take photos for each move. Daz is doing a virtual Hadouken!
Ready for the Nintendo Life grudge match now, @DaddyNewts versus @darrencalvert!
Playing all of these on XL by the way. It's huge!
Looks quite fun if a bit simplistic and not especially skilful. Looks like a modern Rockem Sockem Robots with photo and custom audio support!
Darren is on Photo Dojo now getting beaten up by a girl!
WarioWare DIY hands on now - seems very versatile and quite powerful for a DS game. Sharing with Wii is easy and looks like it could deliver. Very long training mode though!
Create your own Warioware minigames on DS then play on WiiWare
It links with the DS version
Checking out WarioWare DIY on WiiWare
It's kinda like a Kirby game. Bouncing the ball around screen, smashing blocks
Dazza got an A-rank. He's a gaming legend!
It's a disc game that looks very colourful, motion controlled
Darren is about to play Flingsmash, a MotionPlus pinball platformer with one to one movement.
Will keep you guys up to date with anything interesting
We're gonna go play some games now
The speech is over, no more news!
We're gonna get hands on with Other M later
Metroid Other M due Q3 in Europe
5th March DSi XL launch date
DSi XL 93% bigger screen
Fling Smash due summer
S&P launches 7th May in Europe
Sin & Punishment looking awesome, very frantic
Dragon Quest due in summer
Monster Hunter Tri, free online play, 23rd April
SMG2 to be released on 11th June in Europe
Bigger and better than before!
Mario Galaxy 2 on screen. Looks amazing
We've got orange press bands, except James' is green with "orange" handwritten on it! lol
Woohoo it's starting!
The complimentary Danishes hit the spot. Might have another cup o' tea soon
Sade playing in the background, it's like waiting for a movie in the 90s
Sadly we're not allowed to take any photos during the event. Press packs will be given later
Sin & Punishment logo on one of the screens. Gonna be a big hitter on Wii this year we hope
Just waiting for the event to kick off....
The 02: http://twitpic.com/1587o4
We're finally here!
Dec has just fallen into the Thames
We just saw Ant & Dec teaching a middle class Chinese family dressed in white how to use Wii Fit
We've just heard a rumour that the O2 Arena has been redecorated to look like Samus's spaceship!
We're still alive guys. Out in the open again. James still the worst hotel booker EVER!
Nintendo Life HQ starting to get worried as to the whereabouts of our roving reporters... are they LOST?!
It appears that the hotel which @daddynewts booked for us is about an hour away from the 02!
The breakfast of champions! http://twitpic.com/157s5u
Morning all. We're going to enjoy the finest breakfast known to humanity in our luxury hotel... then we're setting off to the 02
Hey, at least he didn't ask you two for beaver shots. Be thankful for small favors! :grinning:
This is Prosody updating to say that he and Darren are in fact in separate rooms, and will not be sharing a bed. Thanks for those homosexual insinuations though, Damo.
Beware of roaming hands and noxious body gas releases under the covers.
In fact, he said he was relishing the chance to get a bit closer to his good friend Darren.
Sadly due to budget cuts they're having to share a bed, but James has told us he doesn't mind one bit.
We're getting reports here at Nintendo Life HQ that James and Darren are snuggled up in bed with their teddies getting some much-needed sleep before the big event tomorrow
We also hear there's gonna be a bigger DSi... amazing scenes - love James x x
I thought Miyamoto said "I need to get a life FTW"
NEWSFLASH: Mario Galaxy 2 and another Metroid game coming soon...who'd have thought it?
Miyamoto just drove by in his Humvee shouting "Nintendo Life FTW!"
Hello Nlife fans! Dazza and Prosody are in London camped out Nintendo's London Media Summit waiting to report all the news to you lovely people tomorrow
