On this episode of E-I-C Speaks, Nia talks about E3 2017 and all of the amazing-ness gamers were blessed with this year. Some gamers are jaded due to lackluster presentations with no smoke and lights, but at the end of the day, it’s important to remember that the GAMES themselves make all of the difference. Understanding that E3 is essentially the “Super Bowl” of gaming, Nia had a ton to say about each company’s offerings – namely EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. Listen to her thoughts below!

Underdelivered is a vast understatement.
Nintendo had every opportunity in the world to wow us again this E3. They stirred up fan excitement with the Pre-E3 Super Smash Bros. announcement that Roy from Fire Emblem, a coveted returning character, and Ryu from the Street Fighter series, newcomer, will now be playable characters as DLC. They also hosted the Nintendo World Championship in the same theater where they hosted last year’s most exciting Super Smash Bros. Invitational, easily one of the best highlights in E3 history. There were 9 awesome Nindies, or indie games on the eShop that released for free during the week of E3. It only made sense that when it came down to Nintendo’s Digital Event, the expectation was that Nintendo would deliver – just as they did last year using the same formula. Yeah, that definitely didn’t happen. Nintendo began their presentation with a hilarious skit using Muppet versions of Reggie Fils-aime, Satoru Iwata, and Shigeru Miyamoto walking down a studio hallway in very epic fashion to the Bowser’s Lava Lake Keep theme from Super Mario 3D World. At this point, my hype levels had elevated. I could not contain my anticipation for what I was theoretical about to witness.
According to YouTuber ProJared, new IP, Splatoon will feature full voice chat. As chaotic as this game appears to be, that is absolutely fantastic to hear. He stated that according to what he played during the E3 demo, it doesn’t seem complete enough to play $60 for. I remember during yesterday’s Nintendo Treehouse Live, the developers behind Splatoon did say that there will be more modes and polish when the games releases in the first half of 2015.
