So here we are. Some “real” Battlefield 3 footage and iPad 2 news. But did we really get what we wanted today?

I certainly did not.

While the iPad 2 is nice, it certainly didn’t meet my expectations and thus I’ve decided to pass on it.

As for Battlefield 3? It looks great, but it didn’t show what I wanted to see which was the destruction and multiplayer side of the game. If EA said this was the sequel to last year’s Medal of Honor, I would have believed them. There’s certainly nothing tone-wise which distinguishes it from the rest of the modern military shooters out there.

I’m excited for the new 3DS Mario title from the Galaxy team. I’m really curious what these guys will come up with. As for Skyward Sword? I’m neutral. Nothing about the trailer was offensive, but it’s what they didn’t show that bothered me the most. Did they alter the underlying flow of the game at all? I’m guessing we’ll find that out in the coming months.
