Hyrule Warriors was completely out of the blue. I watched it in high def through the Wii U eShop. Everything always looks better on the eShop.

Do eShop stream videos at 60fps? 'Cause it always feels like the video is smoother on eShop than on Youtube.

No, it's not at 60fps. It's not that big of a deal, though. The games themselves are at 60fps. Nintendo probably isn't willing to stream a higher framerate, but that doesn't mean they can't. They just don't support it.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-watch-bf4-at... I looked at this video, and it runs at 60fps, but not 1080p without a hitch on Wii U. So ya, my preference of watching on the Wii U is mainly because I have a good HDTV and audio receiver. I don't think you csn find a Mario Kart 8 trailer running at 60fps, anywhere. As long as you see the graphics and gameplay, just know that the framerate will be double that. That's pretty much all I can say.

Meh, but it was to be expected.
The Rosalina reveal was cool but kinda weird. The focused on Kirby for a good 10 seconds and the reveal literally had nothing to do with him lol. I was on the fence about the Kirby 3DS game but the co-op sold me on the game.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Smash!!!

Too many platformers though. poor DKC:TF is going to get lost in a flood that games like Yoshi's New Island probably more deserve to be in.

This was a solid nintendo direct I'd give it 8/10.. It could have used some yarn yoshi and smt x Fire emblem, but overall nice surprises. Nintendo needed this and will still need a good e3 to have a chance to not come in last this generation. They might have the chance to beat xbone if the ps4 dominates over them, which I'm more than certain will happen.

@metriodlink really cool that they give you mario deluxe for free just becuase you registered an account And I look forward to Rosalina in Smash but her star seems maybe a bit overpowered as that star can block attacks. And Hyrule Warriors look cool Can't wait to MK8!
Overall maybe the best direct since well I don't know.... is this true? because i already linked my NNID to together and don't see the game anywhere on the 3DS eshop!

i have a wii u! send me a request with the message "nintendo life" in it without quotes.

Not to beat the dead horse, but I wonder why Hyrule Warriors wasn't the VGX announcement instead of Cranky Kong? Made too much sense I guess lol.

They probably thought that showing a rough sketch of a game that is still in development (Hyrule Warriors) to a mass audience was not a good idea. OTOH the unexpected HW reveal now could also be a response to all the negative reactions to the VGX event.

This was so much better than any recent Nintendo Direct, with an exception of January 2013 and the E3 one. Hyrule Warriors was the best thing about it. I thought it was Zelda U.... well, I was close. Kirby Triple Deluxe was a good thing to start with, too. The Luigi's Mansion figure was a nice bonus, too. NES Remix was weird to me. Dr. Luigi, well to be honest, I don't like Tetris-like games. Yoshi's New Island was meh for me. Never cared for the Yoshi games. Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder is the same as Yoshi's New Island. If I was caught up with games in the GCN era, I would maybe played the original and this one, too. Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transporter, well everything about it that was said during the Direct was released earlier in the week by the TPCi. I wish X was here, but Bravely Default took it's place. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was perfection. The Sonic Lost World DLC will be good for me when the game is $15-$20 for me to get. Wii Sports Club was basically intentional.

9.5/10 (The E3 one is still the best, though.)

Nintendo be trolling the video game community right now. They are supposed to be doomed, not be out there in their own unique, lighthearted, and fun way.

For the sake of clarity, I was making fun of people like that. Not sure if you were grouping me in the never satisfied crowd or not.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Nah, I knew you were joking. Just agreeing with your sarcasm.

Well I looked at that as a good thing. Saw it, as well as the 3D World stuffs when that was first shown, and thought that my Niece and sister will like to play as those characters. Same with the Animal Crossing dude but even moreso with Baby Daisy in Mario Kart. Baby Daisy is basically the cutest thing ever.

Personally I'm all about Diddy Kong and Bowser in all of them but Toon Link in Smash. Probably Wii Fit Trainer depending on how she controls in Smash. Also Cranky Kong in Tropical Freeze, I'm definitely happy about that.

Mario Kart looks great, and for once Rosalina is somewhere she flipping belongs. Though something feels off about it, maybe it's the shading, but I don't know.

...wut?

@DarkwingLz Sorry, I should have elaborated. Minor characters are perfect for spinoffs of a single series, like Mario Kart (we both know smash is a different case), but they shouldn't be recurring characters in the main series of games. When was the last time you saw Daisy in a main series Mario game?
Edit: I'm assuming you were talking about Rosalina and not how Mario Kart 8 feels a bit wierd, correct?

I thought it was pretty awesome, giving some more footage of things I wanted to see and the surprise Dynasty Warriors Zelda looked pretty cool. Other than that the surprise NES remix thing was also awesome, downloaded that after I saw the direct. So overall I thought it was pretty good, not the best of the year but definitely not the worst.
