My other passion in life is video games. E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) takes place this week in Los Angeles which means video game companies are making major announcements. The most fun part of game announcements (aside from actually playing said games) is the shiny new trailers. AaronM gave you a taste yesterday, but here’s the blowout. And I’m keeping it strictly Nintendo because that’s how I roll.
No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle. Game designer/auteur Suda 51’s , over the top, stylish action game. Jidaigeki meets punk rock meets miscellaneous American pop culture references. It’s OK to be a little confused.
I put the rest after the jump because it’s an assload of videos.
Super Mario Galaxy 2. Sequel to the illest shit ever. The first was a shot in the arm for platformers. The second is the ideas that were left on the cutting room floor.
Metroid: Other M. Surprise of the show. Nintendo enlists Team Ninja, the makers of the tits-filled Dead or Alive games, to develop a sidescrolling 3D Metroid game.
Sin and Punishment 2. Two little kids flying around shooting shit up. You gotta love Japanese games.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars. Some Japanese anime studio versus Capcom. So dope I can set aside my deep-seated hatred for anime. (Anime sucks. That’s not up for discussion.) Also, we need a Wu-Tang vs. Capcom.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii. This is kind of the realization of a dream. A cooperative Super Mario Bros. game. 2D games are definitely a lost art.
ML will attend E3 next year, by any means necessary.
