  1. Nintendo is trying their damnest to push ARMS. I hope it pays off because it looks uniquely fun

    1. There’s still the ARMS Invitational Tournament at E3.

      But other than that, I’m glad that it won’t be a part of the Digital Event when we know enough of the game.

    2. E3 focus is more than needed, it’s a new IP and it will release some days after it, can’t have a better occasion to be pushed.

    Hopefully this means E3 will focus more on newly announced AAA games, virtual console and Mario Odyssey

  3. I don’t think Arms will be fun for long. Fighting games need depth like combo complexity, originality like DOA’s counter system etc, or they just become repetitive. This just looks like a fleshed out version of wii sports boxing with a basic grapple block punch triangle. I can’t see the swappable arms bringing much to the table.

    It would be great amongst other fun sports games but I don’t think it will stand up on its own. Certainly not at full price.

    I hope I’m proven wrong though. Splatoon did a good job of shaking up shooters maybe Ninty will surprise me.
