Nintendo E3 Trifecta: Donkey Kong, Kid Icarus, GoldenEye

? The guys who made the Metroid Prime games are making a new Donkey Kong Country game. I wasn’t a fan myself, but I know many people are, so enjoy. It’s certainly more interesting than the new Legend of Zelda game.

? Nintendo is launching their 3DS — that is, their 3-D DS — with Kid Icarus Uprising. As much as I have been anticipating this game for years, 1) I really don’t want to have to buy a 3DS to play one, and 2) it looks… I don’t know. I’m just not excited. The flying segments don’t look fun to me, and the ground segments look like Zelda-lite to me. Basically, nothing in this really makes me think of the original Kid Icarus. Yes, I am a grumpy old man.

? The best example of me being a grumpy old man is how I trot out the “Boy I sure haven’t turned on my Wii since I got an Xbox 360” line. Well, I will never be uttering that line again, because Nintendo is releasing a new — yes new — GoldenEye game for the Wii. Starring Daniel Craig. In GoldenEye. Due this holiday. If you excuse me, I need to dust off my Wii and apologize to it for a while.
