I was a little bit down on E3 this year. I’m not sure why, but in the last few months I’ve been in a bit of fatigue around game news and game hype. Even so, I’m excited for a whole lot of games announced at the show because even if I’m sick and tired of how the industry and fans use marketing to manipulate people… I still love games.
I’m being too negative again. I’m going to try and work on this.
Pokemon X and Y
The Pokemon games haven’t gone through a lot of changes since Red and Blue, but the original formula still works as I said during my Pokemon White review a few years ago. This seems to be the biggest change to the series and if they manage to work through some of the more painful UI elements that still pelage the games this will easily be a Home Run. It also includes some Nintendog like functionality, if you’re into that.
The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD
Having missed the original on Game Cube I’ve always wanted to go back and play Wind Waker. With the graphical update and small game play improvements this is the perfect opportunity to jump into the game. With the other games coming out towards the end of the year this is also releasing around the perfect time to grab a Wii U.
