Not much happening

Wow, I’m almost impressed by how little that is happening now. Is a bit sad really, but somewhat refreshing too. The most exciting thing that has happened it that I watched Avengers: Age of Ultron when it premiered here in Sweden. Such a cool movie! I really enjoyed it, now I’m really hyped for Ant-man.

I’ve been playing some games to, finally played Shovel Knight and damn it was good! Love the charm of the game, the music is so great. Such a great “retro” feeling to the game. I honestly think this is my favorite game of the year so far, it really clicked with me. Great adventure, cool Mega Man like levels. And I just love the sprite work. Hopefully I’ll be able to start playing The Order 1886 this upcoming weekend, or hopefully I’ll be getting a New Nintendo 3DS and Paper Mario Sticker Star. And then I’ll probably just be waiting until Batman Arkham Knight is released.
But still my most eagerly awaited game for this year is Tales of Zestiria and there are more rumors floating around that there will be a PlayStation 4 and Steam version in the west. So we’ll see if that turns out to be true. Guess I’ll have to but every version of the game… Maybe. ;)

E3 2012: Nintendo

It seems like this whole E3 has been very disappointing to me. While I do enjoy Nintendo’s own people like Reggie, Mr.Miyamoto and such I missed the great games. I could really careless about their NintendoLand, it might be fun. But it wasn’t very exciting to watch it. And the fact they just spent about 2-3 minutes on Nintendo 3DS made me sad, sure they’ll have a whole hour for that tomorrow but I would have loved to see something right now. The montages of Wii Fit U wasn’t interesting at all, but it was pretty nice to see what can be done with the Wii U. I’m definitely looking forward to more of those things.

New Super Mario Bros U looked very nice and is probably a lot of fun to play. Batman Arkham City Armored Edition, wasn’t as appealing as I’ve already played Arkham City. The new stuff with the controller will probably fun, but it didn’t do anything for me.
New Super Mario Bros 2 for the 3DS also looked very nice, but there was to much focus on gold of what they showed. Not really sure how to react to that really. Paper Mario: Sticker Star looked really fun, so i want to see more of that. Luigi’s Mansion is still one of my favorite GameCube games and Luigi’s Mansion 2, now know as Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon for 3Ds is something I’m really interested in.

So while I thought Nintendo’s conference was a bit boring too, I think they had the best E3. Since Reggie is very charismatic and he even made the “My body is ready” joke. Gotta give him that! But I’ll wait a bit and see what Nintendo will offer in their Nintendo 3DS conference .
