Here’s Steve Wiebe from Redmond showing his Donkey Kong skills. While I type in a media lounge nearby, I can hear the crowd chanting “Wiebe, Wiebe, Wiebe” and clapping:

“Forza” demo rides, with full surround:

A guide to the new “Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story” in Nintendo’s booth. I tried to play this but it was beyond my capabilities:
