    Mineko's Night Market looks positively charming. Definitely added to my wish list.
    Also, HYPE for Towerfall having Madeline.

    Into the Breach port is pretty nice - I've watched a bit of it when it first launched, and while I don't think it's something I want to play myself, it looked like a must buy for fans of turn-based tactical games. The short matches and small maps make it a good portable game too.

    The World Next Door, actually looks pretty interesting. Into the Breach, seems pretty cool too.


    Goose of the year?

    Fixed. I guess Nintendo wanted to just yank every news site's chain by changing the URL.

    Well, the old video was ~20mins of nothing before actually starting the showcase. So, maybe they just wanted to fix that.

    Yup. And the worst thing of all was that the game looked fucking awful.
    Fuck that game and fuck those developers.

    Into the Breach is amazing, love that game. Hyperlight Drifter is really good too, surprised it took this long to hit Switch.

    It was an indie Direct, why the hell did they expect anything Smash related?

    At least we're getting Bastion and Transistor this year. Too bad I've already got them on Steam though. Not sure I'd buy them just to play on the Switch at this point. Mineko looks adorable, but I'll wait for reviews before I decide to purchase that one.
