    Hey, remember when we used to have huge threads about E3? Remember last year when I was the only person posting in it? :lol: That's not happening this year because work is hell lately. But let's kick it off with Nintendo's pre-E3 show.

    tl;dw Wii U is the console's final name, the controller has been slightly tweaked, has built-in video chat, gyro controls, and web browsing.

    That is a great idea for the Wii to come out with a controller as a lack of one held them back to rather simple style games IMO.

    Btw, it was nice of Nintendo to make an N64 controller available for the XBox. You act as if MS was the main company of innovation here Stitches.

    Expecting, yes. Whether we'll get anything is another story. GTA V feels like a 2013 game to me.

    Unless they are planning something else, Rockstar is not going to be at e3.

    Me too, I knew the fall '12 release was probably going to change. Hopefully not too much. I was hoping to see a snipet of video, or some more info. **** has been sealed tight as a freezer bag to this point.

    They won't have a booth. That doesn't mean they won't be in Microsoft or Sony's press conferences demoing a game or games.

    That is probable. I have read that they will have no e3 presence at all.

    No one could ever confuse an Xbox controller with an N64 controller.

    The NFC thing is incredibly gimicky and just a way for companies to make more money.

    So is DLC, episodic gaming, ports, remakes, etc. Can't be any more gimmicky than the Wiimote.

    You have a link? I'll take any new info on Madden 13 at the moment. I heard a rumor that they are waiting for next gen console (yes, PS4 to be launched in 2013) for them to make significant changes to Madden.

    Thanks man! Just did a quick youtube search and came up with this...

    [video=youtube;c68wVNT5RDA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c68wVNT5RDA[/video]

    Is that Madden or Back Breaker? :shifty: Not sure how refined the system will be though. EA will still probably utilize players being sucked into each other, etc. but this is def. a step in the right direction.

    Wow, that Wii video is completely unwatchable. I'd be surprised if the new Nintendo is anything other than an epic bust.

    For all the talk, I never thought backbreaker was that realistic. The runningbacks never tried hard enough not to get blown away

    Wow, Sony's press conference was much more exciting than Microsoft's. Even though I am intrigued by Microsoft Glass.

    The Last of Us looked brutal.

    It depends on whether or not third party developers with look at the Wii as a viable console for their games. I'd like to get a look at their line-up first before I say anything.

    Well, it's better than having a technical failure while demonstrating your new Zelda game. :lol:

    I gotta admit, the RPGish Career mode for Madden sounds intresting.

    Also I saw this:

    Nintendo is underestimating the dickishness of people on the internet.

    I'm sure they will institute the best profanity filter possible, and insta ban people bypassing it, etc.

    Looking at the Wii U's library of games... I must say that it is pretty solid. The only thing I'm disappointed in his the lack of the StarFox title.
