half an hour about future switch games and 3ds, including Mario tennis aces.

so what do you think they will uncover as well ?

i sure hope for a port of South Park on switch, especially since there's a new DLC coming out soon,
there's the rumors about Diablo III that are more and more present
they will probably talk more about Wolfenstein II that is suppose to come out soon, but that we didnt heard of much
i've heard rumors about a new kingdom for Mario Odyssey...

Is this going to be one of those times where you predict GOTY before it actually comes out?

Anyway, if we're speculating on the next direct, you know my routine by now, but something-something Golden Sun, something-something Advance Wars, something-something-something.

The only things I really want an update on are the online service and Virtual Console. A few games I know we're getting in the future I'd like to see more about are Valkyria Chronicles 4, Wolfenstein II, Pillars of Eternity II, Octopath Traveler, and Bloodstained. Other than that, I'll let Nintendo surprise me

Not the game from 6 years ago? Be still my heart.
When they were touting 3rd party support I assumed it would be more relevant, not porting games from half a dozen years ago that everybody already played in better, more apt systems. Like Skyrim.

I'm just here for the Smash fans getting mad at Nintendo for not announcing the new Smash, despite Nintendo not promising anything about Smash.

which is probably diablo for switch. is it diablo 3 ? probably, i am excited by this, not at all. But, if they work on diablo, this is an indication that they migth also work other games for the platform, which is more exciting

Yeah, plus it's not like Diablo isn't still being played to this day. People can try the joyless "but this game is old" excuse all they want, but product is product at the end of the day, regardless of when it was made. And yes, it would be neat of them to port some other titles like Overwatch over to the Switch (especially if they allow gyro aiming). It's clear more people are looking to the Switch as a viable platform and that's a good thing for the industry.

They're green anyway, said the fox about the grapes he couldn't quite reach.

????? That makes no sense. Seriously, that is a nonsensical analogy to use for this situation. A better one would be "At least I have them, said the fox of the wilted grapes he was eating." Moving on.

I don't know.

is this going to be one of those times where you try and dictate what people are and aren't allowed to choose for their GOTY choice?

btw jokes on you. when you guys reported and got me banned over xmas for that stuff, the Admin revoked the infraction as they considered my ban appeal to be pretty reasonable.

Yeah! People want amazing modern 3rd Party games like Bubsy: The Woolies Strike back!

I'm personally hoping for more news on Octopath Traveler, specifically a release date.

Nothing on Metroid Prime 4?

Or Smash Bros. for Switch?
I have a feeling they're gonna be saving both of those for E3.

I'm hoping for some news on Bloodstained.

Jesus Christ that seems to bein development lingo. Maybe some more hop on hop off ... or maybe that Monster Huntergame localization. As much as I like MHW, I prefer the idea of me and some friends gathering around and playing some good local and internet co-op games.

Stuff that plays to the strengths of the Switch.

Some of the funnest moments in gaming (full stop) is some friends congregating to play something in the flesh .... MHW doesn't scratch that itch. It's just not the same as being able to organize in the flesh and quickly discuss stuff like who's tranqing and collectively playing through hunts together to get other players relatively up to speed.

It's the reason why boardgaming is my favourite gaming medium.

I'm hoping that the Switch brings out more of those games that actually channel those gamers who have friends and like hanging out with people. Like 91% of the world, extroverts like looking for reasons to connect with people.

The Switch can do that and deliver that better than any gaming unit, including PC, on the market. You just need to tap into it more. Hell, the improved advertisement campaign that did so well advertised the ease of social gaming the unit can provide.

Gee, IDK ... maybe target those people more?

Ditto some news on SSB would be great, for the same reasons.

Where did I do that?

I think you're using a liberal interpretation of "dictating." No-one's dictating anything, I'm just pointing out the idiosyncracy of declaring something GOTY before it's even released. If I did that, people would be right to laugh at me. Doesn't stop you from still doing it.

And that's something I never did.

Really want some details on Metroid Prime 4 (and-- fingers crossed-- the Prime Trilogy getting a remaster/ port on Switch).

I'm looking forward to Yoshi, sure, but we already have gameplay vids for that. I don't really need any extra details.

Pokemon Switch news would be great as well, but I'm not expecting that.

Metroid Prime 4 might, MIGHT get a trailer, but that will be it if it even does show up.

Metroid Prime 4 is more than likely going to be saved to be one of the big E3 showcase games. same goes for Pokemon Switch.


The one game i'm most confident that we'll see something from that we haven't heard about in a while is Fire Emblem Switch. they oficially announced that over a year ago now and we still have heard or seen literally nothing other than a title for it. i'm betting that Fire Emblem Switch will probably get a trailer in this direct.

They actually do relatively frequent updates on Twitter about the game's development. English voice recording just finished wrapping up and it sounds like we're definitely going to be seeing it release sometime soon this year.
