E3 Day Two

Nintendo is up to bat, it was a good display, seemed a tad heavy on the 3Ds side, but at least Wii U has something to look forward too.  Bayonetta and Donkey Kong Country return as strong second party titles along with Sonic Lost Worlds.

I'm not disappointed in the 3D Mario World, some people seem upset as they were expecting something of a successor to Super Mario Galaxy.  If anything it's a throwback to Mario 64 with HD worlds and four playable characters ala Super Mario Bros 2/USA.  It has the roly-poly goombas from Super Mario World, and the Tanooki suit is still there from a brief clip.  Cat Mario is gonna make some memes while Cat Peach is going to be the subject of some questionable fan art lol.

Mega Man in the new Smash Bros?  With Kid Icarus there, all we need is Simon Belmont and we'd have the cast of Captain N sans the original characters of course.  His intro was just too epic:

Mega Man, meet next-gen...  next-gen, meet Mega Man.  There's so much potential for an actual 3D Mega Man title, as it is his 25 anniversary.  I've grown up with the blue bomber since the original NES, and this is a great homage to a legendary icon.  There's also an Animal Crossing character that made the roster, hope to see some other chars soon!  Capcom, take notes or better yet, give the franchise to HAL Labs, as they've done so much in this little trailer than you guys have since Mega Man 10.

Never been too big on Yoshi's Island, or maybe I'm remember my utter shame when I bought Yoshi's Story for the N64 way back when I was just out of high school.  

Found out that SquareEnix's upcoming titles are indeed multiplat, so it's no longer PS exclusive.  It's not a bad thing actually, some Xbox fans might want to try them.  Phantom Pain is coming for PS4, which should of been obvious, but no one really knew until now.

Saints Row 4, GTA 5 and Arkham Origins are going to be my games for this year.  Not sure which new console to get first.  Maybe if Baxter made me enough for PS4 AND a Wii U lol, but I'm still leaning towards PS4 unless Smash is coming out very soon.

Amazing E3 in a very long time.
