E3 Coverage - Nintendo
Nintendo showed 27 titles for Wii. They're not all launch titles though; they wouldn't commit to a specific number of launch titles. The Wii is actually very cool. I have to admit that I'm more excited about the Wii than I am about the PS3. The way I see it, Microsoft and Sony can throw more horsepower at games and have better graphics. Big deal. Gaming is still the same just with better graphics. But the Wii is new and radical. The controls are totally different from anything else that I've played. Honestly, after PS3 is going to cost as much as a house, I think I'm much more interested in Wii. There's a bunch of different controllers, the usual nunchuck controller and then there's the classic style controller which is like a GameCube controller, and there's a prototype zapper style controller which is like a gun.

Madden NFL 07 - using the Wii controller is very cool. You use the controller like the football. You snap it to start the play, then you pass with it, and shake it to juke.
The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess - this is so cool. The controller takes some getting used to. You use both hands to play, aiming with the controller and swinging your sword by swiping with the controller. The game looks great.
Wii Sports is golf, tennis, and baseball. You use the controller like you would play the sport. For instance, you serve in tennis and then swing to hit the ball as it comes to you. Very cool stuff.
Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, I didn't get the chance to play this game.
Warioware Smooth Moves - innovative title uses the controller in cool ways. Lots of mini games like hula hoop, turning a key in the lock, or pumping up a tire.
Excite Truck - like Excite Bike. You hold the controller sideways and then use it like a steering wheel. You can also use it to jump and then level off and land.
Red Steel - this is a launch title from Ubisoft. Rated M. Your girlfriend is murdered and you are seeking revenge. It takes place in the USA and Japan and involves taking on the Yakuza. There are crazy boss battles with tons of swordplay.
