I thought the Nintendo conference was simply OUTSTANDING! (Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know just how excited I was)

I said I would never buy a 3DS, but after the announcement of Luigis Mansion 2 I HAVE to XD

I was a little disappointed that the Starfox game is just a port of Lylat Wars to the 3DS. And the Mario Kart and Mario 3D games looked fairly interesting, but it's not something I'm desperate to get my hands on.

Kid Icarus looked stunning! That's another one I'll defo want to play.

While I think WiiU is a really freaking stupid name for a console, I was really impressed with it. I'll most certainly be buying one (provided I finally have my own flat by the time of launch)

Though they spent way too much time on Zelda 25th anniversary, Nintendo had the best of the three presentations in my opinion. I'm very intrigued and have so many questions about the Wii U.

Mario and Luigis Mansion 2 are the must-haves for me when it comes to the 3DS.

I think they spent the perfect amount of time on the Zelda anniversary personally. I would actually have loved to hear more. Especially regarding the Zelda Symphony. A lot of my friends didn't have much care for the Orchestra on stage, but since I'm such a big fan of Video Games Live I got my happy face on. I would love it so much if Tommy Tallarico was the one to take the Zelda Symphony on tour.

I'm so excited for Luigis Mansion 2 that I'm actually going to against my decision to not buy a 3DS. I had real problems getting to grips with the 3D and it very quickly gave me a headache just trying to focus on everything. But i'll just need to keep the 3D perma switched off in order to feed my love for Luigi.
