Thanks for your hard work and dedication to the site and Nintendo in general. I think I speak for nearly everyone here when I say that you are truly respected and are the true face of what a jounalist should be. Keep up the good work!

Could anybody give me a few links to places that are known to be streaming the conference? Other than Gamespot and Nintendo themselves, I do not have any.

The announcement of a Star Wars game (lightsabers and all) was inevitable. The system is too perfectly geared towards swordfighting, and thus lightsabers; furthermore, upon announcement of the controller and its abilities, the first thing that came to many fans and editors minds was how suited it would be to a Star Wars game. Star Wars games have always been hampered by unwieldy control-schemes for their lightsaber play; Jedi Knight II, for example, while putting in a valiant effort on the PC, still had unpredictable and imprecise lightsaber control.

This is great news, but not unexpected. I have also ejaculated, and I haven't seriously played a viedo game for a number of years.

RtR promises to deliver the goods on MONDAY! Falafelkid do you happen to be RtR himself or know him? :P

Dan Solo said...

Great work Fal! I wonder if the Star Wars game will be exclusive to Wii or if it'll be a Wii-ed up version of a game coming to all systems.

therealabdallah said...

That was almost a given but great to hear it anyway!

IALS said...

It said misconception of graphics!M-i-s-c-o-n-c-e-p-t-i-o-n!

Bumrash. Nice try at shifting our lil debate into a fancy "my console is the better one" type of consolewar bitching.
You know,it was evident ever since your first response-I smell fanboy,and it smells like ass.
See,I respect people who can downright ignore the obvious just so that their meaningless speeches make more sense!
See your sivel has nothing to do with nothing,plus your tone exposes you as a huffy fanboybiatch that feels impelled to pull heat over something
that will get you nowhere.
Also note,its evident that you dont come to terms,since you misconceived
what I said to the fullest and started to painstakingly defend and warrant 360.
This bodes ill of your confidence! You seemingly arent comfortable with it since you warrant it by all means neccessary.Your language and over confidence gives me reason to believe that Microsoft pulled a fast one on you (I'm afraid to say) dula .

You should go back to the drawing board and shift lanes!

Also retreat from insulting the Superfan,Tactics
I feel he earned that respect!



Spike said...

I know more than 10 people that will buy Wii just for the star wars game.
Great news Fal, thank you.

Brian said...

Great news, Fal! I'm looking forward to E3 as much as the next person, and as usual I'll be keeping a close eye on the blog. Cheers, and have a great time! ^_^

IALS - Good God, how do you come up with this crap? Do you really have nothing better to do with your time? Seriously, get a life.

Hey, Falafelkid.

Hab keine Ahnung, ob du mir hier antworten kannst... aber werd ich in der Lage sein, deine E3 Berichte auf RTL2 oder 'nem anderen Sender sehen zu können? Vielleicht mit dir an einer Wii Konsole? :P

Hi All,

Just the other day I was speaking with a co-worker, whom is very much a PS3 person due to franchises such as final fantasy, about the up coming Wii. While at first he didn't understand it, I explained how the controller works and he was very interested, but said he wouldn't purchase one due to the franchises he prefers on PS3. Well, after talking for a little while, we both came to the conclusion that if a Star Wars game came out on the Wii that allowed the controller to be the light saber it would sell like bananas here in the U.S.

This is the best news and I can finally really feel Nintendo turning a corner. I can't wait for tomorrow to hear all of the news.

I fully predict the Wii to take Japan by storm in a very DS esque manner. PS3 and Wii will probably sell at a 1 to 1 ratio due to franchises, but Wii should gain a nice market share and give us Nintendo fans a nice variety of games again.
