    Loved it, I'll be all over tennis, crash, okami and smash.

    Dark souls. smash Bros and the tennis look tempting.

    Id never get away with the nightmare game and I was a nightmare at Bandicoot.

    When exactly did people start to expect e3 from Directs? They're fucking directs.

    Wonder if that's a new Smash or Port+Extras. That was BotW link in there after all too.

    Oh and Captain Toad is tempting. I missed the okami and mansion reveals.

    I mean I know there's e3 around the corner but they are hardly going to do a Bethesda and push out a mega game out of nowhere. This means the slim pickings and reheats i anticipated for this year. As shania rightly says "that don't impress me much", I guess yoshi is about as good as it's getting for me this year for what's coming.

    Yes but none of it will hit this year now. I expect e3 to have some gems, but we'll be talking next year at that point.

    So the second year of the Switch is full of re-releases? Sounds like the second year of the Xbox One and PS4!

    Seriously though, I'll probably double dip on Smash Bros if it contains all the DLC like Mario Kart Deluxe did. Unlikely to bother with any of the others though.

    Yeah this covered us until july/august, with smash later this year along with yoshi.

    Plenty more to come at end of year, but will have to wait until e3 or perhaps summer direct to learn more.

    Still holding on to the hope of a Pikmin 4 announcement at E3.

    I mean it's great that the Wii U library is getting rereleased because there are some gems that deserve to reach a wider audience.

    But I have a Wii U and a PS4. So the only really compelling game on the system now is Mario Odyssey. Would be nice to have an excuse to buy the thing. Maybe in 2019!

    @FatSternKikwi xenoblade chronicles 2 lasted me nearly twice as long as odyssey. Great game!

    I don't know, Nintendo have suddenly drop info out of nowhere before. I think there big winter game will be announced at E3 and released in November, alongside Yoshi. Mario Rabbids was revealed and then released two months later. Doom was dropped out of nowhere as well.

    They got history thought out their directs for doing the same thing.

    Thought the Direct was decent. Between now and july is pretty stacked. Mostly ports for sure, but a lot of them i have;t played, combined with a new big title each month. Plenty there.

    But i am always kind of optimistic :)

    It has many incredible games, but maybe if they'd spread them just a little more it would have been even more impressive. The thing is the first year they started a precedent, it would be naive of me to expect it to continue quite as strongly but I also would have liked to see a bit more of that freshness.

    Lots of cool stuff but once again...

    Where the FUCK is Virtual Console? Is it just me that cares?

    Starting to think itll somehow be part of their online plans, maybe a Netflix type subscription service? Id be on board with that or the usual option to buy...

    @JoelStinty dude those pop up games you mentioned were third party. Nintendo are more slow boiled apart from the switch release when they sat on everything till the last minute. I guess that itself does mean they could do it again but since they've gone back to their old announcement ways somewhat.

    Here's the thing for me, dark souls is being rereleased on all consoles, crash nsane is also available on ps4 etc.

    But the crutch is I don't want them onnother consoles. I want them on switch however.

    I can't think of any multiplat game on switch and others i'd rather have on the others due to how much i dig taking my tv gaming on the go as and when i choose.

    Captain Toad, hell yes!

    And Smash!!!

    I was a bit put off by all the messin' about with Mario Tennis, but then they announced simple rules and motion control and all was right again.

    Quite good really. I also loved that Bowser's Inside Story was dated for 2019. That's going to upset all the people who want the 3DS taken out the back and shot.

    I'm super happy about Saga Scarlet Grace. The Vita version was a technical disaster and it didn't work on Vita TV so this should fix all my problems with it.

    I didn't see anything except Dark Souls that really called to me but it does feel like there was something for everyone. Action, RPG, sports, etc.

    I just want to know if Luigi's Mansion 3 is actually a thing and whether Pikmin 4 is as finished as EG claimed years ago.

    Oh, and what the fresh fuck are Retro doing?

    That was a decent Direct. Nothing amazing as expected but it confirmed Mario Tennis as a must buy and the Splatoon dlc was a nice surprise. I'm glad that more people will get a chance to play Captain Toad. Also good to see Smash Bros landing this year. Too bad that Luigi's Mansion isn't a Switch game though.

    It will surely be announced at E3. It's one of Nintendo's biggest IPs so we know it's definitely coming at some point and a big reveal at E3 is sure to get people excited.
