    this was a VR diret or something? seemed like it, and we got some trailers for some games and that was it, and people still say nintendo directs are lackluster, this one was the worst direct ever imo.

    Great, the ONE game that looked halfway interesting, and it was delayed. Oh well, maybe we'll see a real release date for Concrete Genie the next time around.

    Wow, very VR-heavy. Sucks that I'll have to wait for exclusivity to end for all these games, but I guess PSVR must be doing better than I thought in sales.

    Could've been worse. Could've gotten a CEO to front this presentation with some skits.

    You're talking like VR was even remotely dying.

    OTOH, if you drew a Venn diagram for anime fans and VR/PSVR fans, it would probably be a circle. :lol:

    Why is Five Nights at Freddy's still a thing? Why was it ever a thing? Why is there small kids clothing of it available at Target? The world is a confusing place. Is this what old people feel like all the time? Oh god, am I old?
