It's E3 again, day 2.5

Ee!  Have been going around collecting media!

Controller shell!  Well, I guess it's not a shell anymore.  It's so... heehee... so roundy... heeheehee!  I want to play with it =)

Hey guys!  Here's a bunch of rad games Nintendo didn't talk about in their conference!

* Super Paper Mario?  I'm diggin' it!  Love love love the background environments.

Gorgeous.

* Kirby DS - is this what the Gamecube Kirby from a couple years ago became? o.o  Somebody stole some strawberry shortcake??  OH NO KIRBY IS ON THE CASE

* OUENDAAAI mean Elite Beat Agents - OMG OMG OMG!!!!  They totally put the effort into redoing the whole thing!!  All new stages, all new scenarios... all new men-in-black with 'fros =D  And not missing a single step in keeping with the original style.  Must own!  For great OSU!!

* Phantom Hourglass - cool, so it is for certain a Wind Waker sequel.  Which undoubtedly will have no effect whatsoever on the continuation of the main plot, ala Link's Awakening and Majora's Mask.  Bah. =/  The screens look cool though!  Making notes on the map = thumbs way up

And finally:

(I have that original image in a 3 meg jpg.  HORRAY FOR pilfered PRESS KITS)

(Master Sword!  Master Sword!!! Edit: omg it's even got Hylian runes engraved on it. Waaaay too much LotR for these artists.)

Edit: I also got the new trailer! Will have to take some time before analyzing the crap out of it. Need to catch my breath.

Edit edit: Okay, there's not much to analyze except to say: Gawd, those are some FREAKY-ASS monsters. Guess the Resident Evil plant boss wasn't at all unique in its wtf-ness.

You clearly have not taken enough math if you don't find those Paper Mario backgrounds disturbing. It's like, "OMG THERE'S A DOUBLE SUMMATION *dead*"

Also, sadly, that image is not as skinnable as I initially thought. But that's probably just because I am really anal, and want both the Triforce on the shield to fit between equalizer bars and the gold thing on the sword to be the presets button, all without giving up the volume slider, which starts to go into his face. Plus I'm sad that the pretty sword has to be under the equalizer bars. Will probably send you a few different positionings to get your opinion. ...someday, when I have time to make Winamp skins again. >_>;;

Yeah, I was looking at that. "Summation of Mushroom = 0? Cube root of Star^2? Fire Flower greater than or equal to x over Pipe?"

(Clearly x = Pirahna Plant.)

The scary part is it actually makes sense.

The underwater thingee in the trailer makes me feel all icky. I still have nightmares of that huge ass leech thing from Super Mario 64. 0.0

I don't have problems with regular underwater creatures like the moray eel, but I have a problem with that thing just because it's so goddamn freakish. It and that bird thing with the open tentacle face. The designers in this game seem to be fond of that particular biological function and it is something I *do* find slightly disturbing on a gut level.

I wonder how Link will fight that thing? He's never been all that graceful underwater, Zora Mask notwithstanding. Fighting a boss with the Zora Mask sucked hard too.

They're really going for creepy arse ugly in this one, aren't they? That Tentacle Eel is gross- what's the betting that the weak spot(s) are going to be its eyes?
Future bad news= tentacle rape a go-go in the fandom.

I finished the Silent Hill paper, do you still want to read it?
