@CorbieD: Mario Kart 3DS might very well be the best MK game ever. Smooth as silk and some AMAZING tracks!
@CorbieD: Well Miyamoto has decided to move Pikmin over to the Wiiu. Just said it was a much better fit.
@CorbieD: Pikmin coming to Wiiu
@CorbieD: Vitality sensor not stable or reliable enough for release right now.
@CorbieD: Overhead stage in Super Mario 3D is unbelievable!!!! Wow!!!!
@CorbieD: Headed into the Nintendo Dev Roundtable. Hope for some good info.
Wiiu controller is REALLY big and the buttons on it are a bit soft. It's also worth noting that the analog sticks are like those found on the 3DS, not the ones on the Wii.
Analog sticks on the Wiiu controller are like those on the 3DS, not the Wii. And the buttons are very soft.
@CorbieD: The only thing I'll say about PSVita is it's amazing and I will own one on day 1, no way around it.
@CorbieD: Played some more Luigi's Mansion 2, Mario Kart, and Super Mario 3D and these three games are outstanding! More impressions to come later tonight.
Well got to play the Wiiu and it's interesting. The controller is really big. It's fairly comfortable and I can see the possibilities but time will tell.
@CorbieD: Super Mario 3DS didn't disappoint. Feels like a combination of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Bros. 3. Beautiful 3D and some GREAT music!
@CorbieD: Heading to the show floor to play some more 3DS titles from Nintendo. Then it's on to Sega's booth for some Sonic goodness. :grinning:
@CorbieD: Luigi's Mansion 2 might be the best use of 3D I've seen to date on 3DS. So much fun to play too.
CorbieD: Time to play Mario Kart next! :grinning:
CorbieD: Alright, about to play Luigi's Mansion 2. Wish me luck! http://t.co/zkEo2Xp
CorbieD: Not sold on Wiiu. Time will tell.
CorbieD: Watching the LOUD Zelda presentation.
