  1. Great for all who won and all but wtf? … I’m going to be f**ked in work now today and for nothing… No Metroid??!! The show was a major dissapoint, Ninty can’t have had anything big to show like they promised, don’t you dare say P5 in smash was it!?

  2. After all the praise that Red Dead Redemption 2 has received, it’s hard to believe that God Of War won Game Of The Year. As soon as I stop being lost in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and finally figure out what to do (and finish the game), I’ll finally be playing RDR2. And that’s all I’ll be playing for months. Smash will have to wait quite a while.

  3. They should have left the Joker announcement for a Nintendo Direct and instead put Metroid Prime Trilogy HD and then a Prime 4 trailer 😒
