Nintendo Press Conference Notes courtesy of a friend.
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - Wii controller sensor still not very reliable. Using WiiMotion Plus.
- Just Dance 2 - Some new dance game?
- Golden Sun: Dark Dawn - A new chapter in the Golden Sun series for the DS in Holiday 2010.
- Goldeneye - Wii only, sad that it's only going to be on the Wii, arrives Holiday 2010.
- Epic Mickey - A new "dark" Mickey Mouse game - Not a bad showing actually, probably will interest only smaller kids and Mickey fanatics.... See More
- Kirby's Epic Yarn - Some new Kirby game, Did want until I saw the demo...
- Dragon Quest 9 - Sounds like a fun game, will probably pick this one up.
- Metroid: Other M - Looks beautiful, would suggest giving it a try if you have a Wii, available August 31, 2010.
- Donkey Kong Country Returns - Reminds me of my chilhood with the Gameboy, looks great too.
- Kid Icarus - Trailer for a 3DS KI game?
- Nintendo 3DS - No glasses needed for 3D? Tech maybe for future companies to build on? 3D picture taking ability, adjustable 3D viewing, Also it apparently eats people..

Up Next: Sony Press Conference at 12pm Pacific.

Note: I will not be covering any of the conferences on Tuesday thanks to school. The same applies to the conferences on Thursday.

Both Star Wars games (Old Republic and Force Unleashed II) look fantastic. Really excited about both of them.

That was the best Nintendo E3 I have seen in awhile. I'll be totally getting a 3DS with some of those bad ass games.

Yea, Nintendo hit it out of the park. I think they are the proverbial "winners" of E3 this year. I'm really excited about Donkey Kong and Goldeneye with online multiplayer. Epic Mickey looked really interesting as well.
