I might take xenoblade.... i love xbcx... didnt like xb2 that much though... how is the original game compare to xenoblade chronicles x

Consensus is that it's way better, but depends on your taste. For instance, I prefer X over the 2 games. What did you like in X that didn't like in 2?



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Welp .... if Curl thinks Nintendo abandoned the Switch BEFORE the direct, after watching that Direct he'll drop Christianity and become atheist

Catherine full body is unexpected.
Bravely default 2 (one hell of a bad name) looks fun.
Arms in smash is.. at least not another fire emblem character.

Well, it's a coin toss. I think the original gane it's infinitely better than 2, so you should give it a chance. 

Also, the game releases next month but I don't have any money, wtf And with the corona crisis it'll be hard to get any job. But I really want that artbook.

While I wish we got more news on 1st party games, this direct gave us a lot to look forward to. Certainly enough to hold us over till the next big direct, which I assume will be in June despite E3 being delayed. They are probably saving their bigger 1st party titles for that, for one massive blowout.  I could also see a general direct for 1st party games MAYBE coming in late April or early May for announcements, with the "E3" direct in June focusing on gameplay and features, but I find that to be the less likely scenario.  Time will tell.

All in all, pretty good for a mini!  Also, as someone already pointed out, all this ARMs promotion is making me believe an ARMs 2 announcement is on the horizon.

Pretty decent for a Direct Mini, but would've been disastrous for a normal Nintendo Direct. I hope we don't have to wait until E3 for a normal Nintendo Direct, but it's looking that way.
Really weird to announce that a fighter from Arms is coming, but not which one and no reveal trailer. The simple fact that a character from Arms is making it into Smash all but confirms we'll get Arms 2 on Switch or the Switch's successor.
With how many games I want to play right now, I can't justify spending $60 on Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. I already beat the main story on Wii.
We'll probably have to wait until E3 for the big holiday title. It's so up in the air. It could be Super Mario Odyssey 2, Mario Kart 9, a 2D Mario, or maybe even Breath of the Wild 2. I do feel like Breath of the Wild 2 will launch March of next year. But who knows?



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Big question now is if they will wait til e3 for the next direct or if one will come in April. Considering Xenoblade is at the end of May they could get away with waiting for e3 time imo



It wasn't really a mini direct, it was 28 minutes long. Was just an excuse to keep expectations in check which, fair enough I guess? The mini direct in 2018 actually seems better and that was half the length (Mario Aces announcement, Donkey Kong and Hyrule Warriors port, Mario + Rabbids DLC, SMO Baloon update)



Good stuff. Not great, but good.

I don't think i'll be getting XC definitive edition. I loved the first game but playing it again for 200+ hours for just a nex proloque is too much time. There are other great games to play for the first time.
