The E3 08 Countdown Is Here!!
Here we are again. It feels like no time (Just a year!) since we where hereing first news of Mario Kart on Wii, and the rather odd Xbox 360 controller with a Keyboard built onto it. Since then, we've seen some of the best games ever come out. And they hope to top it?!
Well, we'll be counting down to E3 "In Style"- A look at what WE want every single day, here on the blog. Plus much more stuff!
DAY ONE: TOARONI
The bosses wishlist! Today, KN's Founder/Editor/Administrator/Webmaster looks at the game that he wants confirmed most, to kick off the countdown...
Come On! Show Me Ya Moves!
With rules against a Captain N game put into action, and various other people already having reserved there articles, I'm plumping for F-Zero- Nintendo's high-speed racer, starring one of the coolest game charatcers of all-time: Captain "Show Me Ya Moves!" Falcon himself.
So, what could Nintendo add to the latest edition in the series, then? Well, for starters theres online play, which would be essential- Then you've also got the fact that while nota weapon system as hinted by someone who claimed to have got wind of "F-Zero Z" early, some sort of extra element could be added into the game to add more skill then the previous titles had, making it a bit more fun and possibly adding replay value over Mario Kart- Somthing F-Zero has never been able to pluck out of it's Gold Falcon-Emproyded hat before.
Now there's just one thing left to say: "SHOW ME YA MOVES!"
DAY TWO: GIBBON
KN's local monkey and Games Editor (Not to mention Co-Administrator) takes on the universe...
Gibbon's spent all his life trying to get a ride...
OK, I guess I have to promise that this is possibly the only time we'll ever say this here on the KN E3 Blog, but honestly: This is my favorate Game Series Of All-Time. For me, Lyat Wars is the single greatest game ever made, and Fox ranks among my Top couple of Game Characters Ever, so it's a little obvious that I'd be after a StarFox game on Wii. But honestly- Just imagien the possibilties. It'd be great.
Firstly, I'll start with online play. Command showed it can be done, so why not do it on a grander scale? Say, 36 Spaceships, (Let's not just limit it to just Arwings- Bring in all sorts of stuff!) all flying around at once. With multiple people using one Wii, a la Mario Kart. And also, let's have very little limits. Let us fly anywhere, ducking and diving like a mad thing.
The main game should be longer then usual, and have a couple of extra segments to break the flying up, but not in Assult style. How about being able to fly the Great Fox on occasions, or maybe the odd Landmaster level. A couple of ground-based levels would be nice, too. Espechialy if we're just in the same place as the huge war, exploring the entire world, pretty much open-ended, but just trying to take down enemy aircrafts. (Or reach a point to take on a Landmaster or somthing.)
Plot-Wise, as mentioned above, how about a Great War breaking out in the Lyat System, and the StarFox team are forcfully reunited after breaking up once more in Command to take on the enemy forces, lead by a classic StarFox villian- Say Andross or Wolf- and so you enter the greatest game since Lyat Wars.
Now all that remains is a name. I'd suggest one of these:
StarFox: Shadow Of Lyat
StarFox: End Of Days
StarFox: The Final Stand
Just one thing left to say now: DO A BARREL ROLL!
DAY THREE- NYDER
KN's latest recruit reaches for the stars. But floats there first. Then eats them. Then writes his bit for the countdown...
Kirby Wii (The Crystal Shards Part 2)
And he's out local Metal/Hard-Rock King.
The game I would like to see at E3 is a new Kirby game. Kirby is the most awesome little pink ball you could wish for. I would love the game to be a follow up to Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, which rocked. I believe that if they keep the same “two power ups makes a new power up” mechanic and the same platforming game play, then this could be a real winner. All they would need to do is up the difficultly and this could rival Mario Galaxy as the best Wii Game.
Seeing as Kirby does not really have any quotes (and if he does, my world has been turned around) I’ll have the final word on this article:
“Rock on. God bless and eating your enemies makes you more powerful (unless Kirby lied to me)”.
DAY FOUR: GRANCKO
KN's other head -Finaly!- gives a look at why he wants to spend so many horus of his life wandering aimlessly around a village souley populated with animals who are pretty much clones of another....
Everyone's been anticipating AC Wii, After some thought It'll be hard running two towns at once because of the DS Version. But then your favourite bear on Wild World moves out. Then you give up. Now It'll be Easier with the Wii version. There's always been at least 50 new villagers in each game, and this will be the Fourth in the Series.
It's Practically confirmed! The 'Big Game' Is Huge... So is Animal Crossing... It appeals to everyone... So does Animal Crossing... Great! Its Animal Crossing! It's gonna work REALLY well on Wii!
Now theres just one thing to say: GO K.K. RIDER!
DAY 5.1: TOARONI
TR's back with more wishes he wants to forward to Nintendo...
Miyamoto said it himself: "The Wii Remtote is the sort of controller that would work realy well with a game like Pikmin."- And it would. Hence this article being written.
So, what would make a third outing for Captain Olmiar, Louie and the Pikmin even more spechial? Well for starters there would HAVE to be Online Play, surely? And a headset would be ncie so you could discuss plans in an Online Co-Op mode, and pit yourself against another pair of people from somewhere else in the world. The plot could also go on in leaps and bounds- While Pikmin has never been that plot-orientated, it has an opotunaty, and if it seezed it, it would be marvelous.
Now just one thing to say (Or do): *Sounds Pikmin whistle*
