YOU WANT YER PICSPAM? YOU GOTCHER PICSPAM (E3 post part 2)

The Sony conference was mostly completely uninteresting. Instead of attempting to snark on it, here come more Nintendo goodies.

Zelda Skyward Sword
- I hope "Skyward Sword" refers to the fact that you'll hold the sword skyward like He-man rather than it being called the Skyward Sword instead of Master Sword or something.
- Hueg (but scaled down for your sanity) artwork! 1 | 2 | 3 Oh boy, watercolor style. Something new to learn for fanart-ing. :P Nakano I'm never going to keep up with you
- Screens! It really does look like a painting :) | 2 | 3 | 4 | Like the style of that tree. :) | 6 | 7 | This is purdy. | 9 | 10 | lol Photoshop filter. Is this really a screenshot? | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16
- He's right-handed :( Still wish they'd tell us a little more about the story or at least any of the characters...

Kirby's Epic Yarn
Artwork: CUTE. | CUTE. | OH GOD. | SO CUTE.
Posting a few screens too because they just look too damn great: OH MY GOD THAT YARN IS ON FIRE. | OH MY GOD THAT FABRIC WAS ON FIRE. | OH MY GOD A DANDELION MADE OF THREAD LOOPS. | OH MY GOD THE STITCHING. | OH MY GOD HE'S UNZIPPING A BUILDING. | OH MY GOD THE APPLIQUESSSS.

Not mentioned in the conference: Okamiden
- Artwork: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
- OMG NOT ONLY IS AMATERASU CHIBI BUT THERE ARE BABY VERSIONS OF ALL THE ZODIAC GODS TOO. SQUEHHHH. :3 :3 :3
- Want this on the 3DS. But then I pretty much want everything on the 3DS now.

Speaking of 3DS, the games:
- Kid Icarus Uprising has a pretty artwork but a lame logo. It's going to be kind of weird because I'm going to kind of feel like I'm playing Brawl the whole time through it. :P
- OCARINA OF TIME. I wasn't tempted to buy it yet again on the Virtual Console because I'd already beaten it like 10+ times, but IN THREE DEE is pretty much enough to get me throwing moneys at it again, not to mention the more polished graphics. Just a teeeeeny bit of added content, pleeeeaaase?
- Animal Crossing - NO NOT PLAYING IT EVER AGAIN. I'm not sure why they decided to stretch out the characters a little more if they don't just go all out and make them Miis.
- Mario Kart - I wonder if driving in 3D makes it any easier or harder? Those graphics are really smooth.
- Paper Mario - This has got to be the easiest 3D game to make ever. :D
- Star Fox 64 3D - I'm not a Star Fox player, but this looks quite nice.
- Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D is very nice looking, even though I'll never play it.
- Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle - does this really benefit from 3D.......? I'll still buy it nonetheless.
- Resident Evil - gee, those sure are some shiny... cutscenes. Although with 3D in play, even pre-rendered cinematics are a little bit more interesting.
- Ridge Racer - it's Ridge Racer guys! Riiiiiidge Racer!
- Super Street Fighter 4 3D Edition - That is a really nice port of the art style! I don't play SF but I would sure like to see that game.


(I know some of you already have these courtesy of other sites but at least I sat on press.nintendo.com for like 5 hours for you I'm doing it out of tradition. :P)

Kirby this fall, Epic Mickey and Donkey Kong Country this holiday season, plus 3DS might be out then too... I'm starting to thank Nintendo for delaying Zelda because MY WALLET and spare time HERTZ.

Well, you're like my sole source of video game information, except for maybe the PennyArcade guys, so... yay!

Yay! Plus I pick out all the best to me stuff and put it in one place :3

Shiny Zelda I wants it I wants it now :o
I wasn't sure about the art style at first because I liked the semi-realism thing from Twilight ...but it's all so very pretty *_*

Also Okamiden is made of cute and win!

Nice icon :D

I'm cool with the art style, but I do hope they have more interesting environments than the boring generic layout in the demo.

Yay picspam! Click click click click click!

Damnit, Nintendo is going to make me spend lots of money. I want Zelda, Okamiden, Kirby, Metroid, Professor Layton, Donkey Kong Country, Starfox... they are all shiny and awesome (and cute, for the first three).

Oh, I know what Professor Layton will do with the 3DS: 3D puzzles! This'll give a new meaning to Nintendo Hard...

I'm not so sure about Ocarina of Time - between myself and [livejournal.com profile] elemnar we have 4 copies of it (N64, WindWaker bundle, WindWaker bundle Master Quest, Zelda Collector's Edition), so I've no desire to get yet another copy of it. However, I've been thinking for a few years now that Nintendo should do an updated release of it with Wii-quality graphics, and that I would buy. So it really depends on how better the 3DS one is than the original N64 version. This doesn't apply to Starfox - I never had the original, so I'll happily get the 3DS one (for great barrel roll!).
