IT WAS THAT BAD.

Yeah, I learned that after like a majority of the Nintendo Directs. Expect the worst and then, if something actually amazing happens, you'll be super surprised.

No Man's Sky was definitely the highlight of the show for me.

Also the Mega 64 skit.

I had fun once and it was awful.

The best thing about VGX was reading the Nntendolife liveblog out of conextx. Just got home from work so i'm wondering if I should watch the whole show or just the trailers. Overall a decent amount of reveals

Titanfall
The Division
Witcher 3
Quantum Break
Donkey Kong county Tropical freeze
Tomb Raider
thief
Broken Age
Game of Thrones
Tales from Borderlands
No Man's Sky

Looks like a good mix of AAA retail indie content. At the very least these are all the games that will be getting awards next year.

WAT!

not going to lie i am a bit disapointed that they didn't show more than DK: Tropical Freeze but i guess we gotta wait until the next direct to see anything relating to other upcoming Wii U titles..

edit: and no i didn't have unrealistic expectations of seeing un-announced (like seeing a new metroid, Star Fox or F-Zero) Wii U titles and -facepalms and sighs- i mean these following titles were previously announced during the january direct & E3 earlier this year and could have been really good to show off right now..
Zelda, Shinmagami x Fire Emblem, Smash, Mario Kart 8, Yarn Yoshi, Bayonetta 2, and X.

I just watched the last part via youtube with Joel and Geoff and that was painful; The sense of hate between the two was palpable. Its a bit sad because I do feel that Goeff loves the industry and wants to put on the best show.

I was expecting a bit more out of Nintendo, at the very least a trailer for something other than Donkey Kong. I luckily muted the entire thing before it even came on, only watching the trailers when I saw one was on. I'm pretty unhappy that The Stanley Parable didn't win in the Indie Category, just because of how creative it was. No Man's Sky definitely won VGX to me.

You know, I think I get it. Nintendo did this to basically troll the gaming media and get everyone mad for free publicity. I bet Reggie thought of this one. I mean THINK ABOUT IT, Cranky Kong has been trending the internet like crazy. All this nintendo fan rage, justified or not, is free advertising for a game nobody thought about it. I mean, this is some inception type stuff. Not to mention VGX is the exact OPPOSITE of what the big N stands for and its known for being a bad show. They could've picked other options, but why waste a BIG announcement on games that may not come for a while and don't have a date? Why not just be a troll and make what is some relatively minor news the biggest talked about thing. I might give Ninty a pass on this one, because if this is true this is some of the best trolling I've ever seen from any person or thing. It would've been cool to showcase some other stuff, but the turn of events right now is pretty funny in the end.

Reggie didn't even need to namedrop X or Bayonetta 2, either he intentionally wanted to focus on DK/Kart/smash, or he was really really drunk. I'll be optimistic.

There was never a new game. That was made up by internet speculation

To be honest, I'd rather Nintendo not take the Square approach to hype, where they showcase a bunch of games repeatedly that will only be released years later. Kind of pointless to me

My thoughts are: I was right. Said it would be DK news. Its the next big release.

When Nintendo has their own Nintendo Directs, why would anyone believe they would actually reveal Zelda at this event?

News for upcoming games will be done in Nintendo Directs. Any gaming event or media event that has news will be about Donkey Kong for the next 2 months.

Well, fallout 4 was a scam. Telltale is likely going to Overdose, stretch itself thin. Witcher 3, Titanfall and destiny look amazing. That new indie game sounds interesting.

Hype aside, this was a lost opportunity for Nintendo. This wasn't supposed to be about getting Nintendo fans excited. That's what Nintendo Directs are for. This was about free publicity and a chance for Nintendo to sell a few consoles. Yeah, it's a crap award show, but it has an audience. And from the audience, Reggie convinced about zero of them to buy a Wii U. He could have just tossed out old footage for Bayonetta 2 and it would have had more of an impact on that audience.

So I'm not disappointed because this failed to meet the hype. I'm disappointed because, once again, Nintendo has squandered an opportunity to sell their machine.

What, like full moons, silver bullets, and eyebrows that join in the middle?
