8/10
+ Super Mario Maker looks great.
+ Links Awakening remake was a big surprise and I can't wait! I prefer top down Zelda to the open world games honestly.
+ I can't wait to buy BoxBoy + BoxGirl
+ I know many aren't as excited as I am but STORM CONFIRMED FOR MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3 gave me life. Can't wait to see what other X-Men make the cut! :)
+ I look forward to seeing more of Okanaki and Astral Chain.
+ Final Fantasy IX being released today. FFVII coming next month.

- Most of the ports confirmed weren't really anything I care about. Though I am excited Nintendo is still getting great support.
- Don't really care about Tetris 99 and I doubt any Tetris will really live up to Tetris Attack.
- Still want to see SNES games added to online.



Around the Network

Section 1

Mario Maker 2 - love it!
Marvel game - Like it
Box Boy Girl - Don't care
Smash Bros stuff - Expected more here...
Treasure Tracker new content - Okay...
Bloodstained - Backed on Kickstarter, so can't wait either way
Dragon Quest Builders - Already planning to buy it, though the first one is on my wishlist, too
Dragon Quest 11 S - Now we're talking!
Disney junk - Don't care
Star Fox Atlas - Don't care
Rune Factory 4 - Creepy looking graphics, but otherwise I like it.
Rune Factory 5 - Finally, been waiting since Frontier for a new one!
Oninaki - not sure what to think on this one yet.
Yoshi - Interesting new stuff, gonna try the demo later.

Section 2

Fire Emblem - Looking great on the mechanics so far, though the story seems very blurry now.
Tetris 99 Free today - I suck at Tetris, but hey, it proves you can Battle Royale everything
Dead By Daylight - Very unexpected, but really not my type of games
Undertale Expansion - cool
Deus Ex Machina -Not my type of games normally, thogh I'll try out the demo for sure.
GRID Autosport - I prefer arcade racers, but it's a nice addition to the Switch game lineup.
Hellblade - Cool, didn't see that coming. Great game!
Mortal Kombat 11 - Finish him and release the game, dammit!
Unravel Two - it's EA, so I'll pass
Assassin's Creed 3: remake - Not my kind of games, but I can see why people like it.

Section 3

Final Fantasy stuff - coming earlier than expected, and also IX before VII? Okay...
Astral Chain - Looks great, but also like that's not gonna be my kind of games. Still, very interested to know more about it.
News on Bayoneta 3 - Don't care
Zelda Link's Awakening Remake - never played the original, but those graphics look mre than weird, really off-putting to me


I'll give it an 8.5/10 due to many great game announcements out of different genres, but there are clearly some gaping holes that need to be fixed in future directs.



It was a great direct. I'll be getting Mario Maker, Hellblade, Astral Chain, and Zelda.  Maybe Unravel 2 if it doesn't get EA'd up.  I give it a 4/10 (8/10 without the Switch Online penalty).

I'm absolutely pissed off that they have the balls to charge for dlc for 5 extra levels in Captain toad. Not only, they already have had the balls to put 0 f***** effort in every single wiiU port they have made so far (Barely adding any extra content) AND charge full price. On TOP OF THAT, they have the balls to release dlc and charge for it. Meager dlc should I add to that. The original game came with 70 levels, you're telling me you can only add 5 levels? LOL. That kind of greedy Nintendo (Charging for terrible online service, 0 effort wii U ports, cheap mobile games filled to the brim with microtransactions, etc) is becoming a consistent theme ever since Iwata passed. I wouldn't be surprised if we get Animal crossing on switch with microtransactions.

And to think people were defending their ports last year is laughable. Sure, they're smart from a business standpoint. Put 0 effort and rake in tons of sales and even get defended by fanboys. But on top of that, now we can even sell them DLC EXCLUSIVE to the switch version meaning f**k everyone who purchased the game on other platforms, INCLUDING the people who purchased the 3DS AND wiiU versions!

Also, another side note to rant, although that title I am excited for, why do they ABSOLUTELY have to remake 2d Zelda games. Why can't they simply craft a BRAND new 2D Zelda game. Or I don't know, make LA2. Adds even more to the laziness I'm talking about. I've never been more displeased with a console in a long time in terms of first party offerings. Sure, we started off on a bang, but ever since, it's been sluggish at best for everyone who stuck through thick and thin with Nintendo during the wiiU era.

/end of rant

Stop trying to speak for everyone, myself and many others owned Wii U and are more than happy with Switch output. Is it perfect? Far from it, but its miles better than Wii U and better than 3DS as well.

Alright, I gathered a list of ALL Nintendo published game released in 2018. Here it is:

- Bayonetta 1/2 (Direct port, no meaningful new content, charged full price)

-Hyrule warriors (Direct port, 0 effort put into it, 0 new meaningful content, charged full price)

-Captain Toad (Direct port, Slight amount of new content put in, Barely any effort put in, Charged same price as the original wiiU release on top of releasing paid DLC instead of it being added to the port in order to add a bit of value, but nope again, Nintendo doesn't give a shit about consumers (New Nintendo I should say) )

- Nintendo labo (First original release, Hurray!)

- Mario tennis Ace ( AA release, Mario sports game)

- Sushi striker (Never heard of this game, apparently was published by Nintendo)

- Fitness boxing (Lol)

- Mario party (AA release again)

- Super smash ( First brand new AAA release)

- Pokémon (Remake, with actual effort put in. Although not developed by Nintendo)

- Go vacation (Lol)

 

Alright, so let's compile the data...  For 2018, Nintendo released 3 full priced wiiU ports will little to no effort put into them and 1 remake, 1 AAA game, 2 AA games which are consisted of 1 party game and one Mario sports game, and a slew of shovelware including fitness boxing, go vacation and Labo.

Any self-respecting Nintendo consumer would be pissed. You're getting burned and spit in your face for supporting them when they needed your support the most. Sure, 2019 is shaping up for being a much better year. But once again, releasing paid dlc for captain toad and releasing NSMBUD with NO extra levels, NONE! They just don't give 2 flying damns about you or any Nintendo consumer. 

Just think about how long it would have taken them to even only design an extra 10 or so levels for NSMBUD and then you will realise just how fu**** lazy they were with these ports. And now, they're even being lazy with the dlc. 



Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

You should look up the sells numbers of those ports and realize, considering people keep buying those Wii U ports. Nintendo is just giving into supply and demand.

9.5

They announced Rune Factory 5.



I thought it was a good Direct. Astral Chain really caught me off guard, the more I see the trailer, the more I get excited for it. Link's Awakening announcement was a real megaton (also, I like the art style). Fire Emblem Three Houses and Daemon X Machina look interesting too. I'd give the Direct a 8/10.

I am quite aware of all those sales numbers. And I even mentioned in my original post that they are a smart decision from a strictly business point of vue.

I could also say that microtransactions and day 1 dlc and staggered launches ala EA Anthem are all smart business decisions.

However, that doesn't make them any less anti-consumer.

Again, it's the thought of how lazy and greedy Nintendo were with every single wiiU ports that pisses me off. How much longer of a development time would it have took to add 3-4 new races to Mario kart 8 deluxe. How much more development time would it have took to add 1 extra world to Donkey kong tropical freeze. How much longer would it have took to develop 1-2 extra worlds in NSMBUD when we LITERALLY saw with Mario maker how easy it is to design stages when you already have all the assets available. The list could go on and on with every single ports. 

Anyways, I think I have proven my point in my original post. I won't be derailing this thread further.

Well your 2018 list is incomplete and why are we limiting it to only 2018? Why not also include 2017 games and planned 2019 games? And how is being AA, sports or party game a negative?

Of course the software output is going to look bad when you exclude entire years, genres and games without huge budgets.

 

All you are doing is acting like your tastes in games is better than others and your opinion is fact with quotes like this:

"Its been sluggish at best for anyone who stuck through thick and thin with Nintendo during the Wii U era."

"Any self-respecting Nintendo consumer would be pissed."

"You're getting burned and spit in the face for supporting them when they needed your support the most."

 

You're telling me I don't respect myself and I'm getting treated poorly because I'm overall happy with Nintendo's output on Switch? I'm sorry that Nintendo isn't filling your every desire but get over yourself.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Wow, it's like 2013 all over again... when 3DS got Luigi's Mansion, 2D Zelda, Animal Crossing and Pokemon all within the same year...
