I guess they're saving the big guns for E3 now. There's only so many times you can show off Mario Kart, Smash Bros., X, and Bayonetta and expect people to still be excited.

At least this year's E3 might be entertaining. Or at least I hope so.

Shame they couldn't put together a small booth. Last year I got a great picture with the Giant Pikachu

Guess Nintendo and Sony are waiting until E3 to show off what they have, which actually increases my interest in E3.

They didn't show off anything new at any of the past PAX East events. There is no reason to believe that the lack of presences at Pax will translate into more at E3.

The Last of Us was at PAX East last year. I remember it vividly because it was nearly impossible to get into the line.

Sony may not officially be there but there will be next gen games at PAX and I suspect the majority of them to be showcased on the PS4.

Nintendo is doomed.

Seriously though, the game market is pretty dry from all major companies.

Oh, well, then that kinda just makes this a non-story then.

Only game I care about is Project X, so not a real loss.

After last years debacle honestly I don't understand why.

They don't seem to want to treat e3 as something special anymore.. So why are all the Nintendo fans who are starving for content told to wait till e3? I thought the whole point of this Nintendo direct thing was so that they didn't have to wait.

My only guess is that this e3 will be the same as the last. We expect the moon because Nintendo has done so poorly that all the logical thinkers are left to assume that they have to be hiding something under their sleeve.. Yet all there is, is more disappointment. And nintendo delivering the bare minimum necessary to keep afloat. I want to be optimistic but this is the same story every single year now. I don't get what they are doing anymore.

I swear, Nintendo better do a PC this year. If they decide to have a Direct focus same as last year, all my last remaining hope for the company will vanish.

It hasn't before? I remember you absolutely losing it when Nintendo announced Quality of Life, to the point of saying ""F*** NIntendo!"

Perhaps Nintendo is skipping out because they have a direct planned instead?

Nope. Well, you'll be in for one of my rants if this happens. I don't think it will though, they're announcing Zelda. What's worse than Nintendo not showing up with a PC are people defending them not showing up with a PC.
