Thank you for the suggestions. I haven’t heard of a lot of these which is pretty exciting in this day and age. Providing they aren’t prohibitively expensive I will have a pop at them.

Doom 64 is cool, has some unique weapons and beasties that were only seen in this entry.

Probably my favourite game on the system.

Operation Winback was pretty impressive at the time as it was one of, if not THE first game to have a third person cover mechanic

It says on the tweet to expect details on the new Fire Emblem.

So if past directs are any indication, it’ll be 25 minutes on that.

I don't know... should I watch it?

I'm dying to know more, but it'd be nice to go into the game as blind as possible for once. :?

I don't think I'll be able to resist...

I dont get excited by internet rumours when it comes to a Nintendo Direct.

It'll be a fine watch im sure and ill catch up with it in the morning.

GX already has native widescreen support and is as pixel perfect as it's always been.

No need for any Switch port or remake to experience it the way that the wizards at Amusement Vision intended. ;)

Can’t wait for the internet expecting Zelda and getting 25 minutes going in depth on the menus and settings available in the new Fire Emblem game.

Sweet.

There was some good stuff in that Direct I thought. One of the best ones.

Happy days.

Fire emblem looked kinda meh... character designs seemed quite plain, and I’m not a massive fan of the ‘high school’ setting (Valkyria Chronicles 2 almost made it work... almost...)

Going to try the Daemon x Machina demo before I go to bed, and the Zelda thingy at the end mad me happy.

Up to speed. Lost me in the middle in that sea of 'anime boy stalks girl, girl battles generic monster to earn a skill tree upgrade, lots of people grunt whilst numbers appear on screen’s JRPG nonsense BUT either side of that was great.

New Platinum game looks incredible. I’m all over Hellblade (that’s weird, don’t Xbox own this now? Are these two converging into a super brand?). Yoshi gets better every time I see it. Can’t wait to play Matt Daemon X Machinehead. Never played a Fire Emblem but I hear good things and I think this looks good…? Tetris 99, Grid and Boxboy will all get bought. Bloodstained seems good too. Oninaki very beautiful.

Mario Maker 2… Hmmmm… Lost interest fast on Wii U, but we’ll see. Fancy the DLC on Toad but won’t buy it again full price. Never played Links Awakening so that’s a great finale, though I wasn’t 100% into the art style.

Final Fantasy 9 is tempting me…

All in all, pretty bloody good given they didn’t even touch on most of the games that we know are out this year.

I always get really hyped for these things, then ultimately find them a bit underwhelming - the content of them always seems to comprise about 80% obscure JRPGs and DLC for game's I don't play.

Sorely disappointed that there was no mention of Metroid Prime Trilogy or the long-rumoured Star Fox Grand Prix, though Link's Awakening looks ace.

One thing that is really missing from the Switch library is an arcadey racing game in the style of Ridge Racer or Outrun: Coast to Coast. GRID looks OK, but not really what I'm after.

Did not watch the Nintendo Direct - never do because I'm old and I want to go to bed, and it's the internet, I'll just wait.

Good to see Link's Awakening getting some modern love! It looks very... let's say "Nintendo"? That is, very bright and colourful, and appealing.

Thought it was a good Direct. The middle but wasnt for me but there's no denying that systems appeal to that particular audience.

I see a lot of people complaining about how it was a bad Direct but i think what they mean is that their dream game wasnt announced.

Links Remakening is my favourite from the bunch and whilst i dont really click with Mario Maker, Fire Emblem and others there's a wide net cast from Nintendo with this Direct.

A Direct chock full of games for Summer. Clearing the way for E3. Very smart.

Not much for me bar Tetris and FFIX but it seemed like a better direct
