      1. ||The Switch hasn’t had a single negative Nintendo Direct since launch yet, the Empire and the Wii U are dead, no need to go down memory lane to situations irrelevant to the new course of victory…||

        ||Anyone that says that the Switch has had a Nintendo Direct worse than a solid approved one are Xbots and other nonsense haters by default and have irrelevant arguments…||

      2. The problem is over hype has the power to turn a great direct to the end of the world for fans. Look at the Pokemon Stars incident

      3. That PKMN Stars is their own fault. Pokemon Company didn’t cite or hype anything. This is like The Last Jedi thing: They overhype the movie with fan fictions and theories that wasn’t even in the EU they loved so much and damn Disney for “de-canonize” which they’re still using it. After watching it, they curse it’s name just for the whole family fiction theories being tossed out the window (unsurprisingly) and then scold Rian over Luke Skywalker not being the perfect/powerful Jedi without flaws but call out Rey for being Mary Sue. lol See how fanbases are a fucking joke these days? They wanna set themselves up with so much hype because they’re too selfish to expect everything to go their way or land on their laps.

      1. I’m thinking Pokemon is either in May or June. I know the Pokemon Company does it’s own thing in May. If it doesn’t happen there then it’s definitely in June for E3!

      1. Speak for yourself. Sony’s E3 was great for me; Nintendo’s was okay at best. If this direct is exactly what Church says, it’ll be trash compared to all of E3.

      2. Only Spider-Man (because, you know, Sony wants to hold it hostage from Marvel), Last of Us 2 (still nothing of gameplay was shown yet) and God of War (is it a reboot in another camera angle or is it the 4th with a new camera angle/gameplay people have a problem with?). That’s all I see that’s “hyped”. Switch has endless possibilities and games that it’s portability can make it better.

      3. It’s God of War 4 with new gameplay and you have control over the camera now. They revealed a lot of cool stuff at E3 last year. But I won’t tell you. Telling you about all the other cool stuff they showed at E3 2017 would be like DemiGOD trying to tell Quadraxis about all the cool stuff Microsoft showed at E3 2017: a waste of time.

      4. The original 3 Devil May Cry games are coming to PS4 in an HD collection this month to join the 4th game already on the system. Also got God of War 3 on PS4. So I’m not lacking in those games if I don’t bother with a new Switch later in the year. As for God of War 4, it’s just doing what Assassin’s Creed Origins & Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are doing: breaking away from tradition to create a new way to play the game.

      5. I guess Sony Ponies got pissy of having a crappy DMC game and see Bayonetta run off to Nintendo on top of GoW NOT 4, having a change of gameplay/camera/pacing that leaves them wondering “will we ever have a true hack/slash again?” and that’s where this trilogy remaster comes in because they got nothing else. It’s a sad time for Sony fans isn’t it? No crossplay, no backward games, PSN getting hacked up the ass…again and now this. XP

      6. You’d be surprised how little the majority of PlayStation users actually care about Bayonetta. Remember, the original Bayonetta did poorly on PS3 & XBox 360. And it did poorly for a reason: the vast majority just didn’t care.

      7. I know. Less than 3 million COMBINED sales of the first game on both systems, maybe over 3 with Steam. But that’s that so I’m wondering why they’re suddenly salty when Nintendo funds the series to continue. Anyway, Bayonetta now has a home and I’m happy for it. I like the series to stay and provide itself as a first-second party hack/slash since Sony has God of War..until the fourth game changed that and Microsoft has DMC if it doesn’t suck again that is. That’s why they’re mad about Nintendo having Bayonetta because it’s a solid franchise that hasn’t screwed up or died yet.

      8. You pay too much attention to the minority of PlayStation gamers. They are so loud in your head that they got you convinced the majority of PS gamers are 1st person shooter crazed and that they are mad about missing out on Bayonetta 2 & now 3. The internet tends to make the minority of any fanbase or whatever look like the majority when that’s just not true. The minority are just very, very, very fucking vocally loud. It’s also why people like cronotose, Phazoon, and megamansurvives think the vast majority of hackers, modders, & emulators are just nefarious, evil shits that will steal your credit/debit card or hack an online store for the sole purpose of stealing everyone’s credit/debit card information first chance they get. It’s like saying all sharks are man-eaters because bull & tiger sharks will eat anything that trespasses on their territory, including humans, when the vast majority of sharks don’t eat or attack humans and even when they do, it’s because of mistaken identity, not some evil plot to wipe out humanity from the earth’s oceans. lol

We’ll see soon enough either tomorrow or at E3 if & when we find out about paid online.

      7. Then I’ll help you understand. 10 years of missing out on all of the major 3rd party games because they skipped Nintendo because of Nintendo’s failures with the Gamecube and releasing a weak system with terrible porting, another 5 years of SD because the idiots at Nintendo thought HD wasn’t gonna take off, and only a handful of games on Wii & Wii U to play. I spent more time either watching Netflix on Nintendo home consoles or not playing games at all. And why? Because of foolish loyalty in Nintendo instead of buying a damn PS3 like I should have done & not getting the PS4 when it became available in the beginning of 2014. Around 20 games on Wii. Around 10 games on Wii U. Over 50 on PS4. And that was in less than 3 freaking years when I got my PS4 back in November 2015. And that’s not counting the games that are bundled into one sale. I got over 60 games if I count the multiple-games-in-1-game bundles. The 3DS was the only good thing from Nintendo during that time & even then I only have around 25 games for it. Maybe 30 before it gets put out to pasture. (To be honest, I actually hate handheld gaming because of the little screen (the 3D effect of 3DS is pretty cool, though) and the little buttons so the Switch being portable means very little to me. But that’s another subject for another time.) So overall, Nintendo has been mediocre & crap for me. Now you know & will hopefully understand it better. If not, the only thing I can say is you’ve been too blinded by your nostalgia goggles for Nintendo to see past your own thoughts and see how others feel about Nintendo. (I broke my goggles at E3 2015… lol)

Yes, a star fox 2 remaster would be better or a new star fox but this time directed by Kamiya. I’ve always thought that zero would have been different with him helming the project mainly because i am sure that Kamiya is one of those people who has the guts to stand against Miyamoto.

      3. Nintendo wasn’t involved with the first movie, I’d be worried if they put in charge those weebs who works at the tree house. Now the main issue is if Miyamoto understands Americans’ sense of humor, Jackie chan (hr is from china i know), said that he didn’t like the first rush hour movie because of that, Asians may not understand that and maybe the producers might take advantage of that. Illuminarion’s fart jokes are well suited for Wario not Mario.

        I fully hope that Koisumi is somewhat involved with the movie, but at least Nintendo is not Sega/sonic team, lol.

      1. It’s not a true Xenoblade, to be honest. If anything, it’s more of a Xenogears game. But since Square Enix owns Xenogears, they had to make XCX as part of the Xenoblade franchise since the name Xenogears was impossible to use. Maybe if Nintendo had used the money they have, they probably could have bought Xenogears and released XCX as a sequel and maybe even released an HD remaster of the original Xenogears to Wii U.

      *Mario & Sonic at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games: They can announce it in that Direct or at Sega’s Presenation next week.
      *Super Mario Maker 2: I don’t really see that happening until after the Next 2D Mario Game, nor unless the Switch has itself a Miiverse Successor.
      *New 2D Mario Game, Mario Party 10 Deluxe, Luigi’s Mansion 3, New Captain Toad Adventure: What be nice if these all were announced sometime this year, whether it be at E3, in this Direct, or in a Future Nintendo Presentation.
