    Indeed, I'm a sucker for these kinds of directs, mostly one of my favourite RPG series of games.

    What directs made you cringe? The nindies thing?

    No, the Animal Crossing mobile on, the Super Mario Run one, mostly. I couldn't care less about them.

    Three games that are far from your ordinary third party port. The Switch already has two greatest game of all time level games.

    I wouldn't really consider those real directs imo.

    They had the Nintendo Direct name, but they were still bloody cringe-worthy *shudder*. I still despised them, I'm entitled to not liking mobile Nintendo IPs.

    That's what I watch as well, less boring :lol: And you can be sure I'll watch the XBC2 Direct.

    Looking forward to it a lot as well. Not the biggest fan of the english voice actor for Rex, so I think I'll be hoping for Japanese dubbing to be confirmed, as well as some of the story.

    I don't troll Switch users -- while I am anything but a marquis of queensbury type and will kick someone while they are down, asleep and facing away from me (few better times in fact) they have bad enough.

    It was more that I recalled doing GBA, DS and 360 release posts where 3 games in three months would be a slow summer. Maybe they have unique tastes, however a platfomer, a doom clone and an action game/RPG thing is hardly "only likes ancient civilisations 4x strategies".

    No one can! Muahahaha!
    Anyways, the Switch's library is shaping up to be nothing short of very impressive, and that's bound to sell tons of units. Good on 'em, and I wish your wallet the best of luck!

    Ehhhh it's not that violent. The Warriors games are more violent, if anything...

    True. I remember 10 Years ago when the DS and Wii where a thing, a lot more games where released for Nintendo systems.

    If you have time for more than 1 AAA title a month you're doing something wrong ;)

    Anyways I'm super excited for this one, not going to be a day one buy because I like to get a real decent game every Christmas so this is it. I shall be ignoring everything about it untill Christmas day so as not to spoil it for myself.

    No kids, minimal cost of living and some skills which pay high enough that it is even easier to do the previous? If that is doing something wrong then I am OK with that.

    Equally https://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=2708 reckons 12 hours as average for Doom story. Even if you did not lead a life of leisure that is evenings during a week and maybe a weekend. Said thing also assumes you have not played it before and are interested in it? Going back to the 360 days I referred to earlier you would have a couple of choices for a given style of game, or maybe a couple of different styles of game if one did not float your boat.
    Number of FPS stories/campaigns I have done more than once... original Deus Ex and after that we are onto ones with good co-op (Halo, Borderlands, Perfect Dark sort of thing). I have never bothered to look into what the world at large does (does Steam share anything like this?) but among those I have met in the real world I am not unique in this approach.

    Wii U xenoblade clocks some 70 hours if https://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=21287 is anything to go by. I have done worse in a week but not many times and it takes a good game to do that, and xenoblade could surprise us but I have my doubts.

    and we shall finish off with Mario.
    https://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=42833
    27 hours on the leisurely one. I can't do a Mario game in one sitting but even my favourites of the franchise I rarely return to.

    That's well and good when you selectively miss entire sections of the library out to prove your point ofc.

    Many would also count some/all of the following as additions to their library; Skyrim, Fire Emblem Warriors, Mario+Rabids, Mario Kart delux, Pokken Tourney, Golf Story, Stardew Valley, Fifa 18, Just Dance, Nights of Azure, Mummy de, Lego ninjago, Rogue trooper delux, Sine Mora ex, One piece, Dragon Ball Xeno, NBA 2k18, Isaac after birth, Gunvolt Striker, Minecraft, Minecraft Story, Sonic Mania, Splatoon 2, Fate Extella, Cars 3, Arms.

    That's back the last 3 months, also doesn't include the masses of indies that some may find enjoyable, remember just because a game might not be to your tastes it doesn't make it bad, being as you're not the centre of the world to anyone but yourself.

    Then we have Sonic forces, L.A noir, Rime, Batman telltale, MXGP3, Xeno 2 and Doom all within the next month.

    Selectively stating "3 games in 3 months" is a bit embarrassing for someone describing themselves as a "reporter" to be honest.

    I would suggest you leave personal opinions on the floor and try to be more objective than subjective in the future if you wish to be taken seriously. It certainly shows a lack of education past secondary level anyway. I mean I get you are just trolling on the internet but I wondered if you wished to take on some advice to better yourself, I'm sure not though.

    As for your examples I'm not sure how many options were available within the first 7 months of release on the platforms without doing some research (This is something you might wish to try doing too before posting) but one thing I do know is that both Xenoblade games on Wii and Wii U respectively can very much lead into hundreds and hundreds of hours and I doubt this will be much different.

    Anyway, I bid you good day as that's about as much feeding as I wish to give the trolls today.
