Not missing this direct. Hopefully we see more info on Fire Emblem, and whatever Nintendo has in store for Holiday season (please have something for holiday season Nintendo!).

Don’t set yourself for disappointment, they won’t talk about November games in March. If they did, it would be a surprise. And of course they will have holiday games, probably Animal Crossing and Smash.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Yep. Kamiya is a lively character but he's no fool. He wouldn't be so playfull with a big support of Platinum if he didn't know anything.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Well, I'm not expecting anything. Just hopeful about it. So long as Nintendo has at least 1 new (as of yet unannounced) game for holidays, I think they will be golden for 2018. So far we are getting Valkyria Chronicles 4, Pillars of Eternity II, Kirby Star Allies, Octopath Traveler, Fire Emblem, and No More Heroes 3 for new games this year. Four of them are Switch exclusives and the other two are 3rd party multi-plat offerings. That's 6 new games for 2018 compared to 5 new games for 2017. Yeah, these games won't hold a candle to the likes of Zelda/Odyssey, but as long as Nintendo stops having droughts and consistently gets a large batch of new games for their console year after year I'm happy. 

I mean, I bought a Wii U and only ever got 11 games for it. For a system that lasted 4 years (winter 2012 to winter 2016) that's pretty abysmal. Imagine how casuals felt about it. I mean, they wouldn't be interested in games like Xenoblade, or Tokyo Mirage Sessions, so they would have had even fewer games to look forward to.

No idea about that. I'm just assuming he has a couple of announcements of his own. I'm willing to bet the Wonderful 101 will be announced here, and maybe some other Platinum game as well.

Oh gosh! It is so hard to contain the hype. Switch has everything in its favor so the possibilities are endless and e3 has everything to be stellar.

Seriously, is pretty no sense to be heavily skeptical at this point. 3 hours to go



 

 

We reap what we sow

If we would take every serious leaker from the last 48 hours serious than today is e3 times 50. We cant get GTAV, FE, PKMN, Smash, Odyssey DLC, Diddy Kong Racing, NMH and animal crossing in one day. What is wrong with these so called Serious leakers?

To be fair, most of these just circle around every Nintendo announcement. The big 3rd parties like GTA V or MHXX are not big enough to be on E3 anymore, though, so it's normal to assume they'd be announced on a Direct.

This is so funny. The latest Black Ops has been announced too. Now you guys begin to hope that the lack of platform announcement means that a Switch version will be announced in the upcoming Direct.

The timing of those third party announcements is not coincidental, that's for sure. However, they aren't happening because a Switch version is in the works, but rather because there is none is in the works. The entire point is to troll hopeful Nintendo console owners.

I know thats probably the reason.I just said that because its simply fun to speculate.

Free advertising for COD and The Division, is just that.
