Well, it's that time of year again. I've decided to start (another) annual series, this one about E3! This series will showcase four games from Nintendo's Digital Event- two that, in my opinion, are bad, and two that I think are good. I hate to start this on a year that had nothing to do with the Kirby series, but I suppose it's as fine a time as ever. Well, let's get started!
(Note: These opinions are based on a first look at these games. They may turn out to be great/terrible, but it's just what it looks like to me from what they showed at the Digital Event.)
Super Mario Maker
It truly seems that they're giving top billing to this game at E3, what with the Best Buy demos and with it being the final game in the Nintendo World Championships 2015, and it's for good reason. It looks great. Being able to make your own Mario stages is such a good idea on its own, but they have done much more. Multiple game types and being able to do create things that would never have been done in the real Mario series makes it my favorite game of this E3.
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
I loved The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, so to be able to play a similar concept with friends makes this a good choice for my second pick for Best-Of-E3. They're using the same engine, but it feels different- mechanics have been added and the graphics of Link have been changed. While I don't really understand why they didn't just go ahead and make it a four-player game like they've done in the past, but that's a minor gripe and this still looks promising.
Honorable Mention: Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival
I never loved the idea of amiibos. After all, they're basically just paying money for small boosts in your game. Sure, they make good decorations, but gameplay-wise, it's just dropping 20 bucks for something that, in my opinion, isn't really worth it for the most part. Because of this, you could see why I wouldn't enjoy a game that REQUIRES amiibo. Besides, the idea of an Animal Crossing board game doesn't really thrill me anyways.
Chibi Robo! Zip Lash
I enjoy the Chibi Robo series. They're good games with a good premise- an endearing robot with the earnest cause of trying to help something or someone. I think that this game will step away from that premise in favor of making a platforming videogame. It's just not what the series is meant to be. Oh well- at least the new logo is nice.
Dishonorable Mention: Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam
There you have it! I hope that this post was enjoyable to those who read it, even though it had nothing to do with Kirby. I also hope that it didn't offend anyone. What are your opinions on Nintendo's year at E3? I'd like to hear your ideas, or if you disagree/agree with me.
Thanks for reading! :D
