Live Text: European Gamers Summit 2010

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 http://twitpic.com/159klm

15:27

We hope you enjoyed our live text report. Stay tuned for more a more detailed report later today

15:25

Well that's it for us for the day. We're gonna go hit Starbucks and charge the iPhone

14:59

The Zapper control scheme works really well, there's lots of variety in the gameplay... One to watch out for!

14:58

I really enjoyed S&P2. It's as manic as ever, but is much less confusing than N64 original

14:41

Now all that is left to do is play Sin & Punishment 2

14:40

More impressions to come later tonight. Watch this space!

14:39

So is another stage where you have to jump from red tiles to blue tiles which disapear as you spin

14:38

The chilli eating Yoshi stage is fiendish beyond belief

14:37

Galaxy 2 is amazing. Feels bigger and better than ever

13:48

Back in line to play Galaxy 2

13:48

Lunch was very continental and hearty! We're both stuffed now

13:29

Need to grab some lunch now. More Metroid insights later today in our big write-up

13:28

Other M is really cool. It's still "Metroid" but with a refreshing twist. Perfect reboot perhaps!

12:52

Samus is a curvey babe

12:51

Watching trailer on 60" LCD. Looks amazing. Almost HD!

12:50

But point Wiimote at TV and it goes FPS

12:50

Controlled with Wiimote NES style. 2D style

12:49

It's cinematic action, lots of cutscenes

12:48

Other M story follows Super Metroid

12:31

Abort mission!! Orange wristbands going to playtest Metroid Other M

12:27

Just joined the queue to play Mario Galaxy 2. It's VERY long!

12:23

Looks good for a Wii game thou. Lots of stuff to see and do

12:23

Just uses classic controller. Lots of annoying loading times between areas

12:22

Played some multiplayer Monster Hunter Tri... Controls take a while to get used to

12:04

It's region locked for the moment thou. Euro can't play USA

12:02

Monster Hunter Trihas free wifi play

11:54

She was a good sport about it though

11:53

Dazza just kicked Pandora's ass on Photo Dojo!

11:48

Not our timeslot for Metroid yet. Can't wait though!

11:44

Take custom sound effects too. Could this be the next big thing in social handheld gaming?

11:42

Have to take photos for each move. Daz is doing a virtual Hadouken!

11:41

Ready for the Nintendo Life grudge match now, @DaddyNewts versus @darrencalvert!

11:40

Playing all of these on XL by the way. It's huge!

11:38

Looks quite fun if a bit simplistic and not especially skilful. Looks like a modern Rockem Sockem Robots with photo and custom audio support!

11:37

Darren is on Photo Dojo now getting beaten up by a girl!

11:35

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!

11:16

Create your own Warioware minigames on DS then play on WiiWare

11:14

It links with the DS version

11:14

Checking out WarioWare DIY on WiiWare

11:12

It's kinda like a Kirby game. Bouncing the ball around screen, smashing blocks

11:11

Dazza got an A-rank. He's a gaming legend!

11:10

It's a disc game that looks very colourful, motion controlled

11:08

Darren is about to play Flingsmash, a MotionPlus pinball platformer with one to one movement.

11:02

Will keep you guys up to date with anything interesting

11:01

We're gonna go play some games now

10:32

Sadly we're not allowed to take any photos during the event. Press packs will be given later

09:34

We've just heard a rumour that the O2 Arena has been redecorated to look like Samus's spaceship!

09:29

We're still alive guys. Out in the open again. James still the worst hotel booker EVER!

09:21

Nintendo Life HQ starting to get worried as to the whereabouts of our roving reporters... are they LOST?!

08:22

It appears that the hotel which @daddynewts booked for us is about an hour away from the 02!

07:40

The breakfast of champions! http://twitpic.com/157s5u

07:20

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

02:10

Hey, at least he didn't ask you two for beaver shots. Be thankful for small favors!

23:52

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.

23:14

Beware of roaming hands and noxious body gas releases under the covers.

23:11

In fact, he said he was relishing the chance to get a bit closer to his good friend Darren.

23:11

Sadly due to budget cuts they're having to share a bed, but James has told us he doesn't mind one bit.

23:10

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

22:19

We also hear there's gonna be a bigger DSi... amazing scenes - love James x x

22:19

I thought Miyamoto said "I need to get a life FTW"

22:18

NEWSFLASH: Mario Galaxy 2 and another Metroid game coming soon...who'd have thought it?

22:15

Miyamoto just drove by in his Humvee shouting "Nintendo Life FTW!"
