@warioswoods: the presenters (i forget if it was Iwata at that point or what) were all about 'recapturing the hardcore', lol... they just didn't really show all that much that would IMO. i think its just too early to say anything for sure. :3

When they were asked after the presentation if the Wii U could handle Battlefield 3, the question was completely avoided. Yes, this could be a quick diversion to keep from leaking information, but the fact that the either it, or Modern Warfare 3 weren't announced for Wii U as equal titles to PS3/360 during the conference makes me think that the system isn't on par with what these two consoles are starting to currently produce.

it's just too early to judge IMO — in fact, they didn't look like they were really ready to be presenting it at all. they showed a lot of ideas regarding what the hardware itself was capable of, they ran through a reel of developer reactions and then showed some of the 3rd party games being developed for it, but note that nothing was playable on the floor but a few demos that Reggie stressed repeatedly were just demos, not actual games in production. What they showed was interesting (the HD graphics were very nice!), but that's about it for me at the moment tbqh.

... but with Nintendo's power and them seeming very serious about regaining their hardcore audience, they didn't show anything to really back that statement up.

you're absolutely right. on top of that, one of Nintendo's major obstacles has always been their online service, and they showed absolutely nothing regarding U's online features/capabilities aside from the video chat thing — it's another thing that's got me thinking it's way too early to expect anything solid, because they're probably still hashing all that stuff out. with them not even deigning to show off anything but the tablet controller, i wouldn't be surprised to see some major revisions announced before U finally winds up with a release date, lol.

@Funky: if you want something you can sink your teeth into a little, go for Link's Awakening. if you just want something you can blaze through in about five minutes, though, go for SML.

ITT: OP doesn't like motion controls and is ticked that Nintendo's going to continue building off of their success with non-traditional control schemes by coming up with new ways to avoid the same old sixaxis-style controller.

Honestly, it's an evolution of what's already there. We don't know enough about it yet to say anything for sure regarding its online capabilities, but we do know that it's going to continue using motion controls due to the fact that it'll still be using Wii M+ controllers in addition to the new tablet-thing. I'm sorry you're disappointed, and I'm sure you're not the only one out there who was, but why them continuing with the motion controls is apparently such a surprise to you is beyond me — they're just following the same line of innovations that's sold systems for them in the past, and they're gonna keep following it until it comes to an end.

Sorry, Tasuki, but Nintendo Life is getting pounded today thanks to all the E3 festivities, haha — the live text, lots of new users signing up, people trying to chat and post on the forums and on the main site all at once. Everyone who was here last year knows it wasn't this bad, but between the update frenzy last night and the new Wii U today plus the fact that our userbase has grown by 50% since E3 2010, things have been pretty crazy around here yesterday and today.

Ant's doing his best to keep the place running, so we ask that you bear with us. The site should go back to normal again once E3 is over :3

did you have an open spot elsewhere in your list of games/apps, Bobpie? if you download something from the Shop, it'll go to the first open slot in the list (or, if there are no open spots available, it'll just go to the end of it like Teh-Ray mentioned).

That happened to me and a few others quite a bit with the first update iirc, back when the 3DS first hit. The only thing to do is try it again until it works. You might want to wait a while between attempts, their servers are probably getting pounded at the moment :3
