I have to admit, this is the first E3 in a few years that I'm excited to see what Nintendo bring to the table.

If the Switch is able to play Skyrim, then the possibilities of what other games can be brought to it does excite me.

My biggest curiosity is if they're gonna do a direct or a live presentation. Both cases i'll watch, but i have to admit that the second one is far more inspiring on the games side

@FGPackers Yeah, either is OK with me, but a live presentation from E3 would be awesome!

Well previously they said they would only do live presentations for showing off new hardware, which they did for the Switch event in January, so assuming they didn't change their minds, we're probably getting another Digital Event. I don't really care what format they do, as long as the announcements are good.

I think for Nintendo, a Direct makes far more sense. You all remember how awkward the Switch presentation was right? And on top was the problems they had with that one translator. With a Direct you can avoid all those problems plus get the timing through editing down to a fine point, allowing for (hopefully) more to be shown off and in a better/more interesting way.

I want to see something Smash related. Anything Smash related. Even if it's to tell us how long it'll be until we get it.

I can't see it, with Mario Kart, Splatoon and a Mario out this year I would save Smash for Christmas 2018.

Switch games list,

Legend of Zelda BotW, Human resource machine, NBA Playgrounds, Street Fighter 2, Super Bomberman R, Snipperclips, Overcooked, World of Goo.

@FragRed From what I've read, it wasn't actually the translator's fault. Apparently Suda51 was going completely off-script. On top of that, he was making obscure references to Japanese wrestling, and even the Japanese people in the audience didn't get his jokes. All in all, there's was no way that the translator could effectively translate all of that to English in a way that actually made sense for a western audience.

@mav-i-am That wouldn't be wise as you'd be leaving the Smash fanbase on Wii U for way too long. If Nintendo is serious about the Switch, Smash needs to be this year.

I disagree, what they need is not to front load AAA titles on the system.

If they had a live presentation at E3 it would be in english, which would take away the awkward factor.... for us. I doubt Japan would be very happy about it, though. Live translating in general is a pain.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

This. They don't want to blow all of their biggest sellers in 2017 and then have nothing later on in the system's lifespan to help it sell, that just means it's going to have a great first year and then fall off a cliff after that and be no better off than the Wii U. Save some stuff for 2018/2019, maybe Pokemon and Smash could wait until 2018 and help drive sales for that year while they still have Mario, Zelda, Splatoon, and Mario Kart for this year.

@Bolt_Strike While it is true to say Nintendo don't want to front load their first year with games, the majority of people also seem to agree that Nintendo has far too few games, though that is largely due to the lack of any real third party support. Personally I would feel launching Pokemon this year on the Switch may be a better idea than waiting.

Though in Japan, Nintendo has little to worry about in terms of sales, there is a big problem they face in the West. And this holiday will see them competing with Microsoft's codename Xbox Scorpio for sales. And while the Scorpio is merely a console upgrade, it is still significant enough to get people turning heads and potentially buying it instead of the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo really needs more than just Mario this holiday to sell systems.

@Bolt_Strike Fall/Holiday 2017 is going to be very barren otherwise. Just Super Mario Odyssey? Not enough!

I'm totally expecting games like Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to be delayed until early 2018 so it's up to Wii U ports to fill in the gaps.

Well, we have Skyrim and FE:Warriors coming for Fall, and I do think Nintendo will reveal more games at E3. Maybe not AAA productions, but AA games that can fill the gap - either ports or what would have been 3DS material before.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

And short of rectifying the third party situation, you can't have it both ways, the only way to have more games and to not burn up all of their biggest sellers is to increase their output, which is going to be impossible any other way.

Really though, for all of the complaining I don't think more than that is really necessary. How many people are even going to be able to afford a $300 console and 5+ games for it in a year? Ultimately it'll be the quality, not the quantity, that makes or breaks the Switch.

Man, it really doesn't take much for a release window to be labeled as "barren" these days. If this were Sony or Microsoft not releasing a big game in the Fall, nobody would bat an eyelash - they would just say they're waiting for Holiday or right after Holiday and move on. But if it's Nintendo - woo boy, watch out.

It's Nintendo's own fault, though, because they don't have most of the third-party filler stuff to, well, fill their schedule. I guess I'm just at the point in my life where I've come to realize that the third-party filler stuff is mostly just that - regurgitated filler barring a couple surprises every year or so.
