It was ok, not great but ok 116 35.05%
 
How can you not be hyped?... 64 19.34%
 
Total:331

it was pretty bad. It was mega well shot, it was fun to watch no doubt, very stylish and colorful and, well, ..... Japanese

but what is going on with the lack of telling us launch titles? is potentially the only real launch title Zelda? are you kidding me? that's a delayed Wii U title! don't get me wrong, megaaaa hyped for it but that is such a weak outting on its own.

I mean the Switch has been hyped up for quite a while now and I assumed Nintendo had been working mega hard the last year or two to launch the system with a bunch of awesome launch titles. I was waiting the whole presentation for them to literally do a list of 'SWITCH LAUNCH TITLES' or whatever. never happened.

 

what concerns me is the strong liklihood there aren't a number more of them. Zelda + Skyrim is just not a great launch alone.

 

where is Metroid? F Zero? a Pokemon home console game (omg they could just make a new Pokemon Snap 2 game and it would sell like hotcakes)? a well worked on Animal Crossing game?

 

I don't think the price point is a problem because it likely suggests that the Switch will be somewhat powerful spec wise. I don't mind it having a bunch of gimmicky extras (motion controls) because it will have a regular control built it or whatever (and the pro controller available at launch).

 

what I mind is the vague and poor game lineup. I thought for certain Nintendo would have a big shocker reveal, like that Kingdom Hearts 3 would be on the Switch or something. ugh. The announced game library is the biggest disappointment at the moment. I mean literally the executive from Sega came up and spoke for a moment and rather than saying "we're proud to announce this game is coming out for the Switch (insert game)!", he said "we are hopeful to work on putting games out for the Switch" or something or other. the presentation in a nutshell.

For the Fire Emblem Dynasty Warriors game they showed NO footage, just a sword being pulled up. are you kidding me? Xenoblade 2 was choppy as hell as far as frame rate and looks mega unfinished.

I do think this is majorly concerning, and this is coming from a huge Nintendo fan. They needed (or need) like 2 huge launch titles (Zelda +++ Mario) OR they needed like a big titles and a number of surprises (Zelda ++++ F-Zero and something else? something along those lines)

 

fun presentation but the lack of discussion about launch titles is insanely concerning. The concept that Zelda alone is enough to sell the console for a month or two is absurd

Presentation felt pretty outdated as well. Say what you want about Iwata but at least he made things interesting. Very lackluster overall. I went from hyped to meh at this point. Price point for the hardware assumedly being provided is too high. Motion controls should not have been given that much highlight. I mean what is this, 2006.

I disagree. I think the presentation was pretty damn clean and interesting. BUT I do agree with the "omg we have some motion control option games" felt forced and dated in terms of a 'been there, done that' sort of thing.

The presentation was more fun to watch than it was valuable in terms of game/system information. They still didn't reveal a lot about the system in terms of performance, and were either deliberately vague about launch titles (or there just are like none)



It was overall not good but there were some good parts in it

I miss Iwata as a presenter, new guys don't have much charm. The Suda 51 guy was funny though. 



Yes. Yes it was!

Seems you have watched a different presentation than I did ...

I can understand people not being hyped by the presentation, but what you said here simply is wrong ...

I should've specified at launch. 



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Oh man... I'm so, so sorry...



I still don't get how 299 is so much worse than 249.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Id be happy if the only launch game was zelda.

But lets be honest it is far more concerning that we don't know what is coming out in the first 12 months apart from a few games.
