Overview

Preface by Jason Rappaport: Power Shot, our resident Article Ranger and creator of La Radionovela de los Zelda: Passion de Otaku (featured on our podcast), wishes he could have been the person to liveblog Nintendo’s E3 presentation. Unfortunately, dreams can only come true so often, but that didn’t stop him – resilient and resourceful, Power Shot conceded to liveblog the event anyway, in hopes that some lost soul would wander to his unique place of literary and commentary excellence.

This is Power Shot’s liveblog of that very presentation, uncovered for the world to see. Just what he wanted. UPDATE: Power Shot would like to add that he hopes his brilliance in liveblogging precedes him.

Good morning, and this is where I, Power Shot, will display to you my thoughts and opinions of the Nintendo presentation at E3 2010, because our webmaster Jason (aka Jewson) wouldn’t spring for a ticket. Enjoy my responses to the live presentation and the two later “Iwata Asks” segments featuring commentary on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and the Nintendo 3DS.

[9:05:33 AM] Power Shot says: He wants to share things.
[9:05:40 AM] Power Shot says: I hate him.
[9:06:02 AM] Power Shot says: Miyamoto is stating the obvious and I care so little about it.
[9:06:41 AM] Power Shot says: Miyamoto’s translator finally gets a time to shine.
[9:06:47 AM] Power Shot says: Live demo!
[9:06:55 AM] Power Shot says: Graphics looks amazing.

[9:11:29 AM] Power Shot says: Greenpeace is gonna be mad at Link.
[9:11:57 AM] Power Shot says: Potion looked cool.
[9:12:07 AM] Power Shot says: Kinda like a five-hour energy drink.

[9:13:40 AM] Power Shot says: No need to point the Wiimote at the screen anymore.
[9:13:50 AM] Power Shot says: Miyamoto’s aim sucks.
[9:14:04 AM] Power Shot says: Shut up, little brother!
[9:14:21 AM] Power Shot says: Miyamoto got blasted with a bomb.

[9:14:53 AM] Power Shot says: Bomb bowling can now happen.
[9:15:00 AM] Power Shot says: Is that all of the Wii Sports?
[9:15:32 AM] Power Shot says: Miyamoto asks you to please silence your cell phones.

[9:16:38 AM] Power Shot says: You can control it while it flies around.
[9:16:51 AM] Power Shot says: Once again, Miyamoto’s aim sucks.
[9:17:25 AM] Power Shot says: Link is now Indiana Jones.

[9:24:05 AM] Power Shot says: Why is he still fat?
[9:24:32 AM] Power Shot says: Wii made all time record for video game sales.
[9:25:12 AM] Power Shot says: Reggie is here to explain why the Wii is better.
[9:25:38 AM] Power Shot says: This reminds me of when Sony announced the PS3 had sold a million systems at the same time the Wii told ten million.

[9:36:57 AM] Power Shot says: The team wants to have their way with Mickey.
[9:37:38 AM] Power Shot says: Weapon seems to be Paint, and Paint Thinner, which my brother mistook for acid because he is stupid.
[9:38:25 AM] Power Shot says: Seems to be a very open-ended game.
[9:38:51 AM] Power Shot says: A larger audience than Kingdom Hearts?
[9:39:52 AM] Power Shot says: It seems that Mickey just jumped into a Mario game.
[9:40:13 AM] Power Shot says: Oh, it’s Steamboat Mickey.

[10:31:36 AM] Power Shot says: Time to talk about Skyward Sword.
[10:31:59 AM] Power Shot says: Subtitle is due to the story being about a sword.
[10:32:09 AM] Power Shot says: Sky is a heavy element.
[10:32:59 AM] Power Shot says: Discussion about Twilight Princess having too much.
[10:33:24 AM] Power Shot says: Skyward Sword will be much more dense play-wise.
[10:34:06 AM] Power Shot says: SS is only playable with Wii Motion Plus, sorry cheap people.
[10:34:52 AM] Power Shot says: Plus almost didn’t get into the game.

    • Bendi

      PowerShot, i hope zelda universe realizes your literary exelence,and make you a full time live blogger :) keep up the good work.

  • Joko tree

    PowerShot maybe he tries to go back in time by jumping of skyloft (like the end of life on mars exept in life on mars the main character jumps off a bridge to go backk to 1673) so he can fight some enimies in the past. Hahahahahaha no i'm joking Skyward Sword is FIRST in the timeline so he can't go back in time and fight monsters; or can he hmmmmmm.

  • Joko tree

    1973 not 1673 my keybords being a mighty pain in the asteroid
