Pikmin 3 in the flesh (leaf, whatever)

Shigeru Miyamoto gave lots of chatter about a new Pikmin at last year's E3, so it stands to reason that we should get a bit more info this time around. The original games were among the most innovative to be released on the GameCube, and this year's Wii ports have proven that concept works well with the emote and nunchuck combo. The latest issue of Edge features a full-page advert that simply shows a patch of grass, and most people have taken this to be veiled confirmation of the game's presence in LA. In any case, we're all quite excited about this possibility - even me, and I have a near-pathological fear of sentient plant life.

Gameplay demos of Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver

Aside from the slightly awkward names, we're pretty psyched about these games. Gold/Silver were arguably the best of the older Pokemon titles, so most fans are delighted to see them resurrected. The revamped pair are due to be released in Japan later this year, but what better place than E3 to stoke the fires of expectation with a bit of footage - ideally a live gameplay demo. Tom also wants a feature where you can use the DSi's camera to have video chat with other gamers, but admits this is unlikely because "people might wave their penis" at each other. Flash-a-zor, I choose you!

AND PBLIVE, yes, Star Fox Adventure was a good game. I really liked it. I thought it was nice and colorful, and fun as well. If you could take out the part where you fly the ship at the end, the game would have been a 10...

More promise for the Wii, this is great news, Hey how about Sega Rally, or better yet, SHENMUE. Put the Shenmue series on Wii, and watch the units fly.

Pilot Wings series, Space Station Silicon Valley and Goldeneye on VC and a new Pilot Wings game.

A decent Star Fox game (though Adventure wasn't all that bad).

Pokemon Gold & Silver is the important one for me this year from Nintendo.

Mario and Zelda aside, I'd like to see a Lylat Wars sequel more than anything. It's absolutely perfect for Wii and motion sensing and I cannot believe Nintendo aren't working on something based on Starfox.

Lylat Wars was almost like a rail-shooter with a bit of added movement, your route was pre-defined, but you could still dodge stuff with analogue stick movement.

Wii controls would be the same but with the light gun rail-shooter style of shooting, aiming at the target with the wii remote. Shake the nunchuck in various directions to "do a barrel roll", a back flip, brake or "use the boost to chase" :laugh: whack view toggle on the c button, lasers on B, bombs on A, something special on Z... sorted.

Aside from my Lylat pipe dream, Galaxy 2 will sell systems and keep public interest in the game like Zelda wont, they might release Zelda this year as well, though. If they leave it to next year they might be releasing it at the end of a console's life again :P
