Exactly, people treat the rumor of a general direct next week as though it's confirmed when the rumor-mongers also told us we'd get one in Feb.

We've been told "just be patient, it's coming soon" for months now, with nothing to show for it. You can't expect people to wait and suffer forever without losing patience.

Suffering eh? I really hope the coronavirus gives you some perspective on life ffs. This is not suffering—get a grip. 

I have cancer, and I'm in a high risk bracket of dying from corona due to both that and asthma. In times of extreme anxiety and constant mortal danger, the things that bring us relief and help us cope are of paramount importance, and being robbed of them is genuinely distressing.

That Indie Direct rumor was true, so the real Direct could happen next week. I'm sure we will see one big unannounced title in early summer and at least one big title for the holidays. I'm pretty relaxed, but also excited. Nintendo knows how to create eagerness, but we definitely also need some anticipation.

This might be the poorest taste comment I've ever seen on this entire site, and that's saying something. 

Come on, the user has well documented their journey through cancer and is literally losing the ability to feel their legs. There can be different degrees of "suffering" and not everything is meant to be as literal as possible.  Stop being edgy. You KNOW what he means.

Sounds like a personal problem with a victimized mindset. If that doesn’t give you perspective idk what will. Good luck.

edit: you make it more harmful by creating the idea like you are owed something. Yes, knowing news helps. However, under those conditions, the way you are dealing with it genuinely does not seem to be helping your mindset whatsoever.

I am not a medical professional, but In this context, the lack of news is only harmful if you make it harmful.

Edit 2: it is not Nintendo’s responsibility or fault for your happiness or well-being. Their decisions can certainly influence that, but at the end of the day you are responsible for those and that is why I criticized you as such.

1. It being documented does not mean I have followed up on nor does it mean I should be. 

2. yes, dealing with that sucks. I’m not saying it doesn’t matter. However, it is within my entire right to believe they’re being over dramatic with the take on lack of Nintendo news, suffering. 

3. in addition, everyone suffers and goes through their own shit. You having certain ailments/diseases does not make you immune to any type of criticism. I personally believe that their take is extremely out of perspective, weather or not there’s cancer involved, my opinion would be the exact same.

$300 per month would be about $1.88 per hour in wages if you worked a regular 40 hour work week. 

Something has to be much cheaper there.  A cheap,1 bedroom apartment here is over $1,000 per month. Some cities gets 2-3x that much.  $300 wouldn't even cover the electric bill in many places.

Electric, water and house rent are definitely far less expensive here. Indeed our houses are nowhere near as expensive as yours and low income families (let's say 60% of Brazilian population) have some state's help, like smaller water/electric bills if you live in poorer districts, and even some programs to aid housing purchase (dwelling is indeed a constitutional right in Brazil)

However, if we talk about private transport (i.e. cars), it's a luxury like... really. My father could only buy a car when he turned 40, I have no intentions to buy one anytime soon, otherwise I'm going to choose either have lunch or put fuel in the car lmao

Technology in general is crazy expensive here. An iPhone is around four times of the minimum wage, yes you didn't read it wrong I said FOUR TIMES

Not to talk about healthy care. Of course, we have a public healthy service and it's really save lives (already saved mine actually), but it's not really that good quality, so some us have to expend a very high money in health insurance

Edit: oh and by the way, most of the people I know who are employed are currently going to work despite the virus pandemic going on. The government has only now started to consider allowing employers to leave their employees at home, at the cost of their wages, of course.

I'm baffled they even suggested this travesty of help. How are they expecting we to survive without our wages for 2 months? Have you seen the "help" they're going to give to freelance professionals? Only 200 R$. I went to supermarket today only to buy some groceries to survive my quarantine (I started home office today), and I expend more than it

Dude, what?
This is either a comment in ignorance, or lack of empathy.

He's literally at risk of contracting a deadly virus anywhere he goes where there are people. Even in his own house, if his family members have gotten it on their hands or lungs, he has to be cautious not to touch any surface without washing his hands for 20 secs and/or disinfect the surface.

You know the death rate for the Corona virus being around 3%? That's not simply a random number.

It means that healthy young people are closer to 0,1% of having serious conditions and dying. While people who are sick (such as him) or older, have a much higher chance of dying. Could be 50- 90% depending on the circumstance.
But when you account for all the low risk young and/or healthy people, and that there are a lot more of them getting infected because people like Curl are way more cautious, it averages out to about 3%. But it's a completely different story for him. He even has astma, and this thing kills by attacking your lungs.

With all that stress and death on your mind 24/7, he looks to games and places like this for respite. You're just adding to it now.
You're not expected to know personal details of members here, but you need to maintain some consideration. And telling a cancer/astma patient in times of also having to worry about Corona that they have a victimized mindset is extremely tasteless.

Hey, check it out, it's midnight. We are officially in a world where we have no idea when the heck Nintendo's going to release anything.

And are you worried? Beside the fact that there will be a huge drought in Spring-Summer, they're inevitably going to bring the so desired games in the remainder months.
