Weekly Poll: Revisiting The Legend
June 23, 2011
The majority of you feel that Nintendo won E3 2011, and they definitely had a dynamite showing. Super Mario 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart, and Luigi's Mansion 2 were all on display, the last few Wii titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will help the console go out with a bang, and promises of the Wii U will keep us intrigued through the year. Shockingly, however, I came away more impressed with Sony's plans. The Wii U is still largely just an idea with technical demos at this point, and I really need to see a Super Mario game running on it to really jump on board. This is a crucial turning point for Nintendo where it has to amaze right out of the gate with this one. Sony has made plenty of mistakes, but at least it has an idea of where it's going and what it wants to be. As for Microsoft and its Kinect-heavy lineup... the less said about that train wreck, the better.
Speaking of Ocarina of Time, now that the Nintendo 3DS remake of 1998's major Legend of Zelda title is out in stores, will you buy (or have you already bought) it? Have you been waiting for an excuse to replay the game, or are you holding out for the new 3DS titles? Do you not have a 3DS at all and this title isn't enough to make you want one? Let's hear your thoughts.
