    Nintendo 3rd Party Developer Conference

    Starts in 10 minutes.

    IGN is live blogging the event.
    http://wii.ign.com/articles/117/1174592p1.html

    I know Ubisoft is going to be there and I suspect EA as well. Hopefully a surprise from some western developers like Bioware, Bethesda or Rockstar.

    The online infrastructure is also expected to be detailed here. Nintendo stated they will be partnering with somebody...I'm really hoping it's Valve.

    "Showing people using touch pad to arm weapons, people talking to each other, coordinating attacks and scanning maps with tablet, calling air attacks with tablet.

    They're doing this while still playing on the TV."

    ---------- Post added at 09:26 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:24 PM ----------

    ---------- Post added at 09:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:26 PM ----------

    Wii U tablet is fully interactive command post screen.

    ---------- Post added at 09:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:29 PM ----------

    Can be used to view live video as a drone flies over head of enemies.

    ---------- Post added at 09:31 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:29 PM ----------

    Not part of the conference but a thought hit me....imagine playing Metroid and you hold up the tablet to see the world as your selected visor. Think of how that baseball demo at the conference was done.

    ---------- Post added at 09:37 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:31 PM ----------

    Launch your drone into flight, table view looks below, find your enemy and mark him, TV still shows player view but now has a marker on the enemy.

    ---------- Post added at 09:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:37 PM ----------

    Ghost Recon Online will use it's own online service. Personal profiles, stats, listings, rankings, matchmaking, etc...

    ---------- Post added at 09:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:38 PM ----------

    Ghost Feed system allows you to use the tablet to track your friends activities, achievements and schedule matches, etc...

    ---------- Post added at 09:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:40 PM ----------

    Killer Freaks From Outer Space is a new exclusive IP for Wii U.

    ---------- Post added at 09:44 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:42 PM ----------

    It's a FPS. Multiplayer focused.

    ---------- Post added at 09:44 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:44 PM ----------

    Supposed to redefine the genre.

    ---------- Post added at 09:48 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:44 PM ----------

    Demo being shown but nothing on how it redefines stuff yet.

    ---------- Post added at 09:49 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:48 PM ----------

    Setting is London...killing little alien things.

    ---------- Post added at 09:50 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:49 PM ----------

    Sticks move character, table is for aiming. Incredible graphics and lighting for so early in development.

    ---------- Post added at 09:52 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:50 PM ----------

    Can use just the tablet if you like and move in complete 360 freedom.

    ---------- Post added at 09:53 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:52 PM ----------

    Feels much better and more intuitive than Face Raiders on 3DS.

    ---------- Post added at 09:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:53 PM ----------

    Gyro, accelerometers and twin sticks help create more precise aiming.

    ---------- Post added at 09:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:54 PM ----------

    Environmental destruction.

    ---------- Post added at 09:55 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 PM ----------

    Looks like they just learned why they are called "freaks". Alien S&M going on.

    ---------- Post added at 09:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 PM ----------

    Showing a 1 vs 1 demo. 1 is using the tablet and the other is using the Classic Controller pro.

    ---------- Post added at 09:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:57 PM ----------

    All on one Wii U.

    ---------- Post added at 10:00 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:58 PM ----------

    Also to note, an achievement system will be in place for Wii U online.

    ---------- Post added at 10:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:00 PM ----------

    Demo over. Next up.......Assassins Creed.

    ---------- Post added at 10:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:02 PM ----------

    Hardware note. Many core CPU and lots of RAM.

    ---------- Post added at 10:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:03 PM ----------

    Wii U easily accepts all graphical assets and shaders from other platform builds.

    ---------- Post added at 10:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:04 PM ----------

    It's a new game from Ubisoft Quebec. Exclusive most likely.

    ---------- Post added at 10:06 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:06 PM ----------

    Q&A session now.

    ---------- Post added at 10:07 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:06 PM ----------

    Now they won't say if it's new or a port, haha.

    ---------- Post added at 10:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:07 PM ----------

    Ubisoft working with Nintendo to make it free to play like the PC version.

    ---------- Post added at 10:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:13 PM ----------

    2 more games to cover.

    Seems like this 3rd party developer conference is more of a Ubisoft developer conference.

    ---------- Post added at 10:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:14 PM ----------

    Dev kits are not final hardware. It's still evolving.

    ---------- Post added at 10:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:15 PM ----------

    All of Ubi's demos were prepared very quickly.

    ---------- Post added at 10:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:18 PM ----------

    And.....we're done.

    ---------- Post added at 10:24 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:24 PM ----------

    Media assets to arrive shortly.

    I want to see that Freak game. It still doesn't seem that Nintendo has set up an online network though. Why should Ubi have to make and use their own servers?

    Nintendo has said it will offer their own or allow devs to use their own. Giving devs a choice.

    If you missed the main E3 Presentation conference, you can watch that at e3.nintendo.com. But as Crazy noted, the smaller developer conferences do not allow film or photography.

    09:00 - Ghost Recon Online demo

    i like how they are using the controller. certainly has potential for quick and efficient tactical gameplay.

    30:00 Killer Freaks From Space demo

    not sure about gyro aiming but will certainly give it a go. the Killer Freaks reminds me of a Rabbids version of the Gremlins. that multi-player mode is interesting and could turn out to be pretty fun. would be good to have Alien commander vs 4 players. obviously needs to be fleshed out and balanced though.

    50:30 - Assassin's Creed really short talk

    54:30 - Q&A
