Honestly, I watched the Japanese video with subtitles (I think it was the European version) and Sakurai starting with the multiplayer mode was actually a smart move, since I've heard quite a lot of people say they're now excited about the game (including myself). That way, he captured everyone's attention pretty well, and I finally understood how the battles worked (with the whole angel mechanic). I also love how there's also free-for-alls.
Other than that and Last Story coming to the Americas, Fire Emblem 13 was looking nice, with voice acting (nothing new, but it's good to see it return) and nice character art. Also, being able to (somehow, I forget how exactly) obtain old characters is a pretty neat idea. My first thought was just making an OP team with the best character from past games, but then I though pretty much what YL said. Anything else was either "eh..." or "meh..."
New Super Mario Bros. Wii 2 has been confirmed, with raccoon suits. It's 3DS.
Super Mario Bros. Wii 2... for 3DS?
Nobody mentioned the Pokémon stuff! I thought it was cool. They're releasing an app that lets you locate Pokémon using the AR viewer, catch them, and send them to BW2. And Pokédex 3D Pro, which contains all the pre-Unova Pokémon now. There was a trailer for BW2 with some kind of weird battle against a giant robot Tyranitar? I'm not sure what was happening there.
Nah, it's just called New Super Mario Bros. 2. If we are in fact getting one on Wii U as well, does that mean two 2D Mario games in one year?
That'd be weird.
Also there was nothing about a Kirby 20th Anniversary compilation, but they did say there'd be a 20th Anniversary campaign. This may include a compilation, but it's more likely to be a range of Kirby events throughout the year.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
