    That's why I hate indies. All so caught up in defining themselves outside the norm and throwing adjectives at their creations that themselves are passed along as pretentious.
    A game. Not a game. But experimental game.

    But no game....

    the only new titles are that of indy studios and majority are shovel ware crap you could get same or similar on smart devices, remaining titles same old nintendo recycled crap and old ports of old games i already own.

    There was one game that I like most, the longing, and I'll play today, but on steam where it is way cheaper in my region ($4 on steam as opposed as $20 on eshop).

    I liked other stuff too, but with release dates way ahead there is no reason to worry about them right now.

    Overall I think it was a great presentation, I am sure that for many developers that was their biggest exposure they had yet, and that is good for gaming in general (I don't know if it helps Nintendo at all, but big companies don't need help to begin with).

    That's why I hate mainstream games. All so caught up in defining themselves as inside the norm and throwing adjectives at their creations that themselves are passed along as pretentious. A game. "The best game." The same thing you've been doing over and over again with no chance of creativity anymore.

    GetsuFumaDen was surprising and it's from Konami. Some background history. The first game came out for FamiCom which was back in 1987, and the main character only shows up as cameo in other Konami titles. There were no sequel to this game until now.

    A lot of these look promising. IDK how House of the Dead is indie either, but I always liked the series. And Fez is another one of those well-regarded puzzlers I've been meaning to play for years, so glad it's on Switch.

    Well, nothing really that interesting except TMNT because .... TMNT is already something that catches more my interest but combined with Dotemu ? Damn I already can't wait
    House of the Dead is cool too

    TMNT: Shredder's Revenge and Cris Tales seem like promising games. A demo for Cris Tales can be downloaded from the eShop

    Fez out of nowhere.... what a game that is if you haven't played it! Wonder what Phil 'Japanese games suck!' Fish is doing these days, probably still sat in the corner of a dark room in the fetal position crying 'They're calling me bad names!!11!' :lol:

    TMNT looked fantastic, but I was already sold on that one... Quite a few others looked pretty good too, in a try before I'd buy kind of way for the most part (and despite me not really liking the first, I suppose I've got to grab Oxenfree 2 just to see where that leads, morbid curiosity kind of way) - personally, for an indie direct, I thought it was pretty good!

    Nintendo hasn't had a direct yet recently. Which one are you referring to?
