Red, Yellow & Blue: Nintendo's E3 2014 Press Conference

As the final major press conference of the show, Nintendo certainly had some hard acts to follow. Then again, given the increasingly bizarre (yet watchable) videos Nintendo has put out recently, you would think it has got a few things up their sleeves. And guess what? Nintendo certainly did.

Woooo!! Part Twoooo!! Sony's E3 2014 Press Conference

Two years ago, Sony’s press conference was full of Woooo Boys, the kind of people that whooped and hollered at the drop of a microphone, hat or otherwise.

Nintendo Announces E3 2014 Plans

Nintendo has announced its plans for E3 2014, which will pick up where the company left off last year and eschew the traditional press conference in favour of livestreams and periphery events.
