Greetings from Comic-Con 2012!

July 15, 2012

Jam packed days at Comic Con and Legoland. In GEEK heaven! I probably have a couple dozen posts I want to do, but I’m in the midst of too much awesomeness to stop and write about it!

Stay tuned though! I will start posting tons right after Con (assuming I’m not completely passed out on the couch from over geeking out). I’ll be doing posts on new Lego sets and minifigs, how inept Sony is with handling Human Beings, previews for new Nintendo games/products, and a WORLD EXCLUSIVE about something I got straight from the mouth of Mario.

Nintendo Reveals Comic-Con 2012 Lineup

July 9, 2012

Nintendo announced today that in addition to their booth, they will once again be renting out the Marriott Hotel next door to Comic-Con to create their “Nintendo Gaming Lounge”. However, in contrast to how incredible last year’s selection of games was, this year feels like a major missed opportunity. The Wii U is sadly absent and most of the games they are showing have been released for months.

Yet, it isn’t all bleak. The 3DS XL will be playable as well as New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon! Check out the full list and the press release below.

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– At this year’s Comic-Con International 2012 event taking place July 12-15 at the San Diego Convention Center, members of the general public will enjoy an early chance to get their hands on Nintendo 3DS XL, a new version of the Nintendo 3DS system with 90 percent larger screens that launches Aug. 19.

In addition to Nintendo’s booth at the show (#5135), multiple activities will take place at a special Nintendo Gaming Lounge in the San Diego Ballroom at the Marriott Marquis & Marina at 333 W. Harbor Drive, adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center. A Comic-Con badge is not required to gain entry to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge.

Games that are scheduled to be playable at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge include:

Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo 3DS XL

New Super Mario Bros. 2
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Mario Kart 7
Super Mario 3D Land

June 21, 2012

UPDATE: Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe are also holding Nintendo Directs. NOA’s is tonight at 9:00 PT and will be focused on 3DS, DS, and Wii. Watch it live here.

 

Original: Good old Nintendo is treating us to more news again on Friday! This is a Japanese Nintendo Direct, but I’d still expect some news that could apply to the world. It’ll be airing at 8:00 P.M. PT on the 21st. You can watch it live (in Japanese) here.

My wish for the event? News about Animal Crossing 3DS! “No Animal Crossing” was actually trending on Twitter after their 3DS E3 Software Showcase. They had to have noticed that right?

Pre-E3 Nintendo Direct Sunday at 3:00 PT! Focus on Wii U Concept!

June 2, 2012

And so it begins. Iwata, Reggie, and Miyamoto have arrived in LA for E3. But that’s not the big news here. The big news here is that Nintendo is holding another one of their direct-to-fan presentations tomorrow to talk Wii U before the big bang of their Tuesday conference and the ska-doosh of their Wednesday software showcase. They say it’s to talk the concept behind the Wii U and such. There is bound to be plenty of fun so be sure to tune in here at 3 pm PT.

Expect this to be the beginning of a spectacular array of E3 posts here as well as me trying my hand at live tweeting throughout E3 from my couch.

Is your body ready?
