Weekly Poll: Good Nintentions

Weekly Poll for 6-11-2012Nintendo walked away with the honors for the most impressive press conference in the last poll, although I think that while Nintendo certainly showed plenty of games that excited me (anything with a Mario in the title, essentially), I thought that Sony had a better understanding of what made for an interesting show (minus Wonderbook, of course).  Nintendo's show became bogged down on a demo of Nintendo Land and the shaky uncertain speaking style of the company's Scott Moffitt brought a lack of confidence to the affair.  Moreover, Nintendo seemed to have saved most of its big news for its post-E3 Nintendo Direct briefing.  I always enjoy Nintendo's press conferences, but this year they seemed slightly off their game (no pun intended).  Satoru Iwata didn't even speak!  I can't give top scores for a Nintendo show without Iwata's annual speech.  Sony had plenty of exciting PlayStation 3 games to show off that had me planning out of end of the year shopping plans.  As for the other companies, Ubisoft impressed me with Rayman Legends, Assassin's Creed III, and Watch Dogs, whle Electronic Arts wowed with its new SimCity project, and Microsoft had a neat showcase for Halo 4.

Speaking of post-E3 Nintendo announcements, the company has revealed that it plans to offer paid downloadable expansions for its new games beginning with the upcoming New Super Mario Bros. 2 for the Nintendo 3DS.  After release at a price to be announced, new Coin Rush levels will be available in the 3DS eShop.  This is Nintendo's first foray into the world of paid DLC.  Do you trust Nintendo to offer fairly priced DLC?  Or is this move going to take the company down a greedy road as time goes on?  Let's hear your thoughts.
