Based on E3 announcements and/or what was on the floor are you playing or replaying anything to get ready for future releases?

Four Swords Adventure - I just moved and don't have any local friends yet, but my 4-year-old enjoys helping with single player (I only have one GBA anyway).  I played for a couple of hours last night then saw a guy wearing a Four Swords shirt at a service station today.

Luigi's Mansion - I can't locate my copy since the move, but want to play it again before the 3DS release.

Paper Mario - I'm currently playing through Paper Mario with my daughter and we'll tackle TTYD next.  She begs me to play it sometimes, but she also says, "play your new zombie game" referring to Terraria.

Ocarina of Time - I don't know if I want to play it now or simply wait for the 3DS version.

Super Mario ___ - What to play before SM3D? My daughter loves Mario.

LEGO ___ - My daughter loves LEGO so we might try one of those games.

SSHD - I enjoyed it on release and might try it again or wait for the new version.

Little Big Planet 2 - I enjoyed the original, and bought the second just before our move, but have yet to play it.

Sly and Sly 2 - I'm glad I have a PS3 that'll play them. 

Uncharted - I never played it outside of the demo so I think it's time to jump in.

Minecraft - I've never played it, but am enjoying Terraria. (I don't have a 360 yet though.)

BioShock, but it has nothing to do with BioShock Infinite being at E3. I was going to be replaying it some time before E3 happened, but my DVD-ROM drive decided it didn't want me to be able to play it. I only just got a no-disc crack for the game earlier tonight.

With my PS3 turned paperweight and my Wii library being largely uninteresting at the moment, not much. However, I started (re)playing stuff on my DS again for the first time in a long while. So far, I've just put some more work into Retro Game Challenge, which mostly served to remind me what a legitimately unfun pain in the butt it becomes as time goes on. Also, oddly enough, I fooled around with my old copy of Mario Party Advance this morning, remembering that, despite being awkward over all, it actually has a pretty good soundtrack. Also, I'm missing a Gaddget--I think it's from "The Pyramid", which I don't know how to get to, so now I have a ridiculous new goal for the summer...

I've been away from home since E3 so the only things I've been playing are Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars, Super Mario Land, and 3D Classics Excitebike on 3DS. I got two StreetPass hits in Denver but considering I've passed literally thousands of humans in the last week that seems low (both were female BTW).

As for what I wish I were playing, it's killing me that Duke Nukem Forever released whilst I was away from my systems.

I'm replaying:
Mario Kart Wii because of Mario Kart 3DS,
Pikmin because of the Pikmin 3 announcement,
and Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. Not really because of Paper Mario 3DS, but just because I wanted to replay it, not having done so since it first came out. I forgot how Bowser-centric that game was, and now I want more Bowser games. I mean really, Nintendo has made Mario games that focus on every one of the series' main characters except Bowser. All he has is this game that's half-focused on him.

Since my parents have completely redid our basement I'm unable to play any of my console games for a while, but I've been finishing up Pokemon White. It's my favorite installment in the series so far.
The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

Since we're apparently talking about all games and not just E3-related stuff, I've also been playing both BlazBlue PSP games (I started playing the original because a friend has Calamity Trigger on PS3 and I wanted to get used to that version's balance differences) and Terraria.

My playing urges have little to do with E3 anymore. I don't want to burn myself out playing the games that they are making sequels to.

On a releated note: I've had the strangest urge to play Diddy Kong Racing recently. I may have to hook up my N64 soon, or track down a DS version..
Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

I'm a patient dude. I don't really get hyped for anything, especially not games I know that I'm gonna like, expecting anything is the easiest way to make a game disappoint you
All your dreeeeeeams begiiin to shatterrrrrr~
It's YOUR problem!

That and looking up spoilers before you've even played it.

A little bit of Pikmin 2 with a side of Luigi's Mansion topped with The World Ends with You. And for dessert, Ocarina of Time 3D and Dragon Quest V. Bon apetit.
