A look at that Lego/Forza car on stage:
Some of the stage pyrotechnics from before this cinematic trailer started up... dang!
Oh, also, I’m Maddy, with some occasional stage-side updates from the venue!
I really wanted to play Poker Night 2, but unfortunately, the licensing deals for the characters in the game have lapsed, so it’s no longer available for sale. I’m missing out on all those killer Portal, Venture Bros. and Borderlands references that 2013-era me would have absolutely adored. Rough!
I think it’s the Other M figma figure? That’s what her shoulder pauldrons look like in Other M, at any rate. The only posable Samus that I own is much less fancy, but at least she’s wearing her armor from Prime:
The Nintendo Treehouse is about to launch into some gameplay of Ridley, so, that’s it, that’s my whole day. That’s my whole year. This has been a very fun Nintendo experience. Thanks for live-blogging along with me losing my mind, Chris.
That ruled. CHRIS. That ruled! I’m so excited to hear more about Smash from the folks on the ground at E3.
My heart rate. Is. Elevated.
RIDLEY EXPLODING A DANG PLANET
YOOOO MECHA RIDLEY SKIN TOO
THEY SAID HE WAS TOO POWERFUL
THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE
is this.... is this Ridley in Smash... IS THIS.....
OH MY GOD
“The fighter in the lead will sometimes flash with light.” Oh, cool, Smash finally incorporated the part of a four-player Smash battle when everyone starts screaming “EVERYONE GANG UP ON [PERSON], THEY’RE AHEAD OF ALL OF US”
Some way-too-short glimpses at all of the Smash stages. There is so much Smash information in this conference. SO MUCH. They seriously just launched into a closer glimpse at the “directional air dodge.” Are you going to teach me some beginner combos next, Sakurai?
Even more Pokemon? Excellent. My all-Pokemon Smash battles with item levels set to “high” are gonna be siiiiiick.
The Splatoon inkling looks mega fun to play. Excited to roll that OP roller around. “All of them have their own outfits.” Again, thank you Smash, for recognizing how important outfits are in this game.
DAISY as her own fighter!!!!! Oh, that’s wonderful! Way better than just giving Peach an alternate costume.
