Tweets from Nintendo Europe Media Summit
18:08 So as the Euro Media summit draws to a close, what Nintendo Wii and DS games have caught your interest? JB
15:09 Mario Galaxy 2 is awesome. We're investigating the possibility of podcast right now...oh, we're off to record one now!
13:44 We're waiting for Mario Galaxy now.
13:43 We've just come out of a Metroid presentation where we all played Other M for half hour. The viewpoint switching works better than you'd think.
12:30 We've been summoned to the Metroid area. Other M here we come! Galaxy queue still massive.
12:29 Well, I made it fly, but the game wouldn't win. Should've done the tutorial. Will be great when I can do it tho!
12:27 WarioWare DIY on WiiWare is a nice little title. The DS title is much better. I tried to make a bird fly out of a burning forest. Failed.
12:25 FlingSmash is a bit all over the place control wise but when it works it feels excellent.
12:24 James would like to remind you he won when he played alone. I would like to remind you I was the only who didn't die on my go.
12:21 My tweet got interrupted by FlingSmash earlier. Really fun little title! MH3 was much better than Eurogamer Expo. Watched Adam get stomped.
11:26 Monster Hunter Tri was fun. FlingSmash is mine!
10:56 Off we go. Impressions throughout. Quick and to the point!
10:55 No more talk. Play time!
10:55 Metroid: Other M is coming in the third quarter. Playable soon!
10:54 Of course, you can read Adam's hands on of that already. 5th March release.
10:53 DSi XL being bigged up. It's funny cos it's bigger.
10:53 Span Smasher! Now known as FlingSmash. Summer.
10:52 We'll tell you how good it is later I'm sure. Releases 7th May.
10:51 Sin and Punishment 2 trailer. Looks very shooty.
10:50 Monster Hunter Tri has free online. 23rd April release. Dragon Quest 9 is published by Nintendo here too.
10:49 MG2 will be a challenge it seems. Playable today. EU release: June 11th.
10:48 I want to whistle to that music.
10:47 Mario Galaxy 2 trailer is on. It's the one from the US summit.
10:47 It's all about playing today apparently. Packed first half of the year.
10:45 Here we go. Very exclusive things apparently. No cameras. Not even phones.
10:43 2 minutes until kick-off apparently! Excitement-ton... - Adam
I'm tired, hungry & eager for a stiff drink. Start the conference already!
10:36 James has joined the party!
10:31 We would've told you that half an hour ago if Twitter hadn't been playing up.
10:30 Sin and Punishment 2 is called Successor of the Skies over here.
10:28 Warring updates now! Adam's grammar will be better cos of his BLACKBERRY.
Hello from Adam! Event's about to begin, methinks
10:27 It's all a bit dark and blue in here.
10:24 Seem to be ok now...Adam poised to take over any sec!
10:22 Some Twitter problems at the mo. Dont fail me now!
10:11 We're inside the belly of the beast! Swish, Nintendo.
09:56 Be warned - my grammar is going to go to pot soon doing speedy live blogging. Sorry apostrophes!
09:54 Waiting outside Nintendo's magic media summit bubble while lots of MJ fans go to the O2 exhibit. Who's gonna have more fun, us or them?
09:22 Me and Adam are stalking the O2. Exciting times soon! We hope.
06:16 C3's Twitter is under Mike's control until further notice. You'll be seeing live updates and, if we're allowed, impressions through the day.
06:10 Morning! On my way to London for Nintendo's media summit. It all kicks off at 10am GMT. -Mike
