    The Japanese account has stated that the direct will be tomorrow (September 7th)

    Edit: Sorry my bad, don't pay any attention to this

    First, please speak english instead of slamming your face onto the keyboard. It’s not anybody’s fault the Direct got delayed, nor is it due to “people not using common sense”, it wouldn’t be as successful if everyone just announced all their games at the start of the year and then say nothing all year. Let them plan how they like, they know what they’re doing. Also, you mentioned summer. What happened with Harvey and Irma?

    GUYS, DON'T GO PANIC yet, earthquakes are very frequent and common in japan and their government is well prepared for situation like this. missing people are probably trapped under the building, the rescue team are moving really fast, let's wait for further updates.

    Good on Nintendo for doing the right thing and delaying, who cares about video games when people are dying.

    I did wish they put in more attention (delay it for a week), but they delayed it only for a day, time’s didn’t change.

    You're from Florida? That means you were taught English at school, right?

    My prayers go towards those affected by the earthquake. Hope those missing people are found very soon, injured recover quickly and those who lost their lives rest in peace.

    Earthquakes are a lot worse than hurricanes. You can't predict earthquakes in any way.

    Also, when EA started the fundraiser for the victim of the shooting that happened a few weeks ago in the US, many people flipped their shit.

    Jeez, shit sounds bad. Hopefully everyone is alright. A 7.0 sounds like it would cause a lot of structural and collateral damage to the area.

    Big N is now Little i. That, or they're now an indie-only company.

    I really hope tings are okay. Nintendo is the reason this place exists. It's also the reason smwcentral exists. It's the reason I have a switch in my pocket, too.

    ...I hope everybody else is okay also.


    Let's hope that nobody was crushed by a giant N falling from the sky :(

    I make jokes when I'm nervous. It helps me cope.

    Like the average person, I'm pretty disappointed the Direct is delayed. But really, I feel bad for Japan right now and hope they recover soon.

    The only problem with me is that my patience has been low lately, and I keep stressing out about shit I don't need to be. (i literally somewhat worried I'd die before the Direct actually happens, I don't know why). So I was pretty angry this morning, I was looking forward to today because of the Direct.

    Deleted again?
    Hmm...


    Still, we must stop targetting about the Direct and actually imagine that Hokkaido turned into a warzone with intire flat ground turned into strange-looking mountains. I’ve never ever seen something like that!
