Yeah I wouldn't mention the other multitude of stuff you got banned for if I were you, neither. Stop stirring gooseberry fool like a school playground gossip.

Apologies if I wound anyone up in here (namely jawafour), that wasn't my intention.

We really can't afford to lose people like Jawa, please stop spelling out doom that isn't and literally never happens for whoever console manufacturer/gamedev. We're all gamers and btw I've owned almost all mainstream formats.

Anyway. I really like Zelda, and I think this bodes well for the scope of that game. I sometimes feel both overwhelmed and underwhelmed with big presentations, that feel dragged on and most stuff (endless sequels with no innovation) is repetitive. I think I'll enjoy tuning into a live stream that focuses on pure gameplay instead of trailers and short demos etc.

I fully expect Nintendo to unveil the NX with more games this year at their own event, which they have done in the past.

The seem to just be done with E3 at the moment, theyre likely just holding the floor space for now to see how the NX does and if they really need it down the line but they look to be going their own way when it comes to releasing news and realising that directs and stuff like that can happen whenever they want. Theres no need to shove everything into a 2 week window when all other companies are vying for attention as well, space it out and get some extra free press if you can. As much as I love E3, having game reveals and news spread across the year also has a certain appeal and looks to be an approach various companies are taking, lets not forget that MS and Sony also had dedicated events for their console reveals.

This is ridiculous. I highly doubt the reason Jawa went awol for a few days was Nick or gamerforever who are both perfectly entitled to their opinions.

Nintendo are not above criticism, censoring people who give them a kicking when they deserve it, whatever their motives, is preposterous.

There are plenty of places to go on the internet if all you want to do is praise to high heaven every fart Nintendo toots out.

The way I see it, Nintendo are showcasing a new Zelda game which is awesome and no one seems to be getting hurt so that's great too.

Calm down, that's not what I was saying at all... It is tiresome to read ridiculous speculation devoid of facts when the people posting have no genuine interest in the product/brand anyway. I don't give a crap which brand is being criticised but it's tiresome to see total nonsense posted ad nauseum.

I'm not censoring anything. The only thing I ever delete on here is porn Google digs up from 3 years back. And I'm perfectly entitled to my own opinion with regards to which opinions I find baseless, boring and in some cases inflammatory without censoring them literally ever.

Considering Nintendo "is only going to show Zelda U" it has a hell of a lot of floorspace booked for E3.

There's no demo, just a physical recreation of Hyrule field. All attendees are given swords. The last survivor gets all the NX information.

Battle Royale Nintendo style. I'd pay to watch it.

All that space just for Zelda is insane. They must be planning something pretty special. Like a lot of interactive physical stuff.

They probably just booked the space before they realised they'd strawberry floated it and had to delay everything.

At first I was blind and thought it was just that part smaller than oculus. Not bad.

I can't wait to see what the booth looks like, they should have attendees complete dungeons before they get the chance to play the new Zelda
