I don't have a 3DS at the moment (I was kinda forced to lend it to the missus cos she's a huge Layton fan and she didn't have the money to get one of her own) so the 3DS news don't interest me much. However, I liked the WiiU stuff I have seen.

Super Mario 3D World - I was really disappointed when it got announced because it didn't look like an improvement over anything in the 3D Mario serie...actually it looked like a step backwards compared with the excellence of the Galaxy serie. But what they have shown during this direct was good and maybe the game has enough ideas in it to justify its existence. Not exactly "excited" about it, but I'm glad it's shaping up rather nicely.

Tropical Freeze delay - this is one of those titles I'm really interested in, and I'm happy it gets delayed because me wallet needs a bit of a rest.

Mario & Sonic Winter Olympics - not really interested in it, but I'm happy WiiU is getting a first party title with such a strong emphasis on online multiplaying. I can see it selling well with the younger audience.

Sonic in Super Smash Bros - nothing new under the sun, no?!

Sonic Lost World - I'm happy if Sega does Sonic justice but I'm not interested in the slightest in this game. And it didn't look that fun to me to be honest.

Assassin's Creed, Batman et al - nothing to die for, but it's nice to see a Nintendo console getting these kind of games...they are important to build a library on par with the competition.

Pikmin 3 DLC - very excited about this. Loved the game and loved the Mission Mode, so extra content is definitely welcome.

Wii Party U - it's not a bad game is it?! Again, something I'm not going to get, but I can see it could be of potential interest to the general audience, so it's welcome.

Top-10 games I played in 2017: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (WiiU) - Rogue Legacy (PS3) - Fallout 3 (PS3) - Red Dead Redemption (PS3) - Guns of Boom (MP) - Sky Force Reloaded (MP) - Time Locker (MP) - Alien vs Pinball (MP) - Reigns (MP) - Out There: Ω Edition (MP)

Mario is looking better, but I'd like to see more footage of the large open areas.

Sonic in Smash Bros. is ok.

Kirby game looks underwhelming, considering what the 3DS is capable of.



Thinking beyond here, if this direct was all about the games coming out BEFORE 2014, what will the next one be about?

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

I think a holiday Direct will unveil the new Wii U Zelda game as well as a release date for SSB. You saw it here first.
