Oh my, that's a lot of Menu Fighters...
All the dev's must've been sat at home writing strategic menus during lockdown!

Hmmmm. Not sure what to think of that. A collection would have been nicer than Skyward Sword HD, which they'll inevitably charge £50 quid for!! Splatoon 3 is a good announcement, but 2022... Hey ho.

What a complete load of mostly bollocks. When the only game I actually care about is Mario Golf, there's something amiss in the world of gaming for me.

There was some great looking stuff there, but also some real crud.

More DLC for Smash Bros? Yep. But a cookie cutter character. And I don't play Smash Bros. My son LOVES Smash, but even he wasn't impressed. She looks good as a character, but she doesn't seem to be unique in any way. Don't say "Dual character", as Zelda/Sheik did that, many years ago.

Monster Hunter Rise looked great, but not my cup of tea. My son loved the demo and is looking forward to the actual game.

The Tactical games are my cup of tea, but looked soooo busy that they're pointless to look at. Give me Advance Wars and Fire Emblem stylee, or even Final Fantasy/Onimusha Tactics and I'm a happy bunny.

Secret of Mana remake? The HD and pixel graphics made me want to rip my eyes out they are sooo jarring together.

No mention of Disgaea 6, which just came out in Japan and comes out in March everywhere else.

Skyward Sword was a great WiiU game (except the end bosses), but hardly in need of a HD treatment. Another WiiU port with a silly pricetag attached.

Splatoon 3? I've till got the first one, still wrapped, somewhere.

2021 for Switch? Forget about it!

No Pikmin 4? No BOTW 2? No actually fun looking games? Yep, that's this Direct for me.

Moan. Moan. Moan.

Wasn't Skyward Sword on Wii and not Wii U?

I'm just tired of seeing anime pixel-style RPGs. Have we not got enough of them??

I had Skyward Sword on the Wii U, but it was also available on the Wii (first). Forgot about the Wii version TBH.

As for the anime pixel chars; Yep. Definitely.

I think my overriding issue with the whole thing, was that everything had a giant sprawling storyline.
I just don't have time for that shit!!

Gimme games..
Just gamey games.
I want two minute games.
Where's my WarioWare, damnit!!!
