Socoder -> Off Topic -> E3 2021 - The Year of Nothing

E3's certainly been a bit piss-poor this year. Seems a year and a half of Covid's screwed everyone's plans.

Hopefully Ninty's big event tonight can cheer everyone up.

Ninty's on at 5pm, UK.

Yeah, I've not been following as closely as I would normally, but I've seen feck all so far on other systems that made me want them. At least I can look forward to Mario Vs Rabbids 2 next year - I loved and 100%'d the first game.

I'm at work for Nintendo's event today, but I'll catch up on things tomorrow.

Fingers crossed for stuffage on -

- BOTW2
- Metroid 4
- Pikmin 4 (please, please, please!!!!)
- New AC:NH content (Nookingtons, Gyroids, Nintendo/Zelda outfits/furniture/gubbins etc. at the very least...)
- Something really new and Nintendo (or even something old, like a new Kid Icarus).

I'm hoping for a WarioWare.. I'm also hoping that it won't be like the crappy Game'n'Wario edition.

Super Monkey Ball Retro/Banana Mania still hasn't actually been announced, but box art and screenshots have popped up all over the place. Smeg knows if that's actually happening, but I do hope they bring along the Billiards.

Also hoping for WarioWare. Also hoping to see some Pikmin, BOTW2, maybe some new IP? Really hope they don't spend 20 minutes on Splatoon 3

The Intellivision video yesterday announced nothing new. The reaction didn't seem very positive on the YT comments, either.

Mum's been busy outside adding lights to the side fence, so the kitchen door's window is a little more interesting.
A neighbour's spotted her, and wandered up for a chat.
They're currently discussing how much she's looking forward to Super Monkey Ball's comeback!

No F Zero

I don't think we'll see FZero for a while. Once MarioKart got anti-grav, it was all over!

Metroid Dread was the only real highlight for me, and that looked a bit... lifeless.
Advance Wars 1 & 2 looked OK, so that'll probably be on my to get list at some point, but I exhausted those games on GBA many years ago.

If Mario Party had had 10 boards it would have been a no-brainer. Just five old boards remastered? GTFO!

A couple of other titles looked interesting, but not really must have titles eg. Shun Megami and Tony Hawks, but other than that, not much of note.

Never played a WarioWare game and probably won't play this one either.

I'm surprised there was no Splatoon game mentioned tbh.

Never player WarioWare?!
Wow!
See if you can track down a rom of the first GBA one. Highly recommended.

I watched a bit of the Nintendo stream. I never had a Nintendo system of any kind so it did nothing to me.

I only was interested in what Bethesda would show. Startfield out next year. Probably going to be a big mess of bugs and disappointments. It might be the ideal Elite Dangerous mixed with Minecraft like construction and mining and have great FPS shooter elements, but i'm not betting it is going to be anything I would buy on day 1.

I love MonkeyBall. I have a few different versions of it on various machines, It's a fantasticly playable, fun and frustrating game. But, I got bored of it very, very quickly. Too quickly. I'm not really seeing anything new that will encourage me to fork out yet again, I'm afraid.

It really is a perfect arcade game; good for a quick few levels, for a quid, then move onto something different. And that, really, is how it is for me. If it were £20 then it's a no-brainer, over that price-point? Nope.

I'll be buying it for Monkey Billiards, if nothing else.
Mum LOVES Monkey Billiards.
The night of the announcement, Mum was outside chit-chatting with neighbours, and was telling them how excited she was that Super Monkey Balls is coming back.
.. A absolute rarity for Mum to be so into games that she actually brings up the topic of a game coming out..

I might end up having to buy a second Switch for this one, so that Switch Pro can't come soon enough.

Oh, and Monkey Target, too, of course.
