Nintendo Direct Confirms Stellar 2019 - February's Nintendo Direct unveiled plenty of new games set to release from now until Summer.
The Switch just keeps getting better. Playing games lying down in bed is the best .
You can lie down and play the Xbox or PS4 while lying down in bed Bed + Big Pillows = Win
That's a dope set up. I'm on the couch :/
You know what I mean lol... I can play my Switch all over the place it's the best thing about it
One of the reasons I love gaming laptops is because I can chill on my bed playing Doom or the Total War series
I'm with you man I go to bed with my lappy, has a GTX 1080 in it, so I'm set for a bit
I've done plenty of that, but it gets so bad for your back and I already have back problems :/ Had to start playing at a desk with a decent chair.
Too many games too little time thank the gods switch can be played on the go, squeeze out any little time we can away from tv
By now everyone and their mothers has already posted the amount of exclusive games coming to the Switch this year. I’m not gonna bother, so look it up.
They have very low childish standards. Lo L
The only thing of interested I saw was a Platinum game and a remake.
man, it's amazing how i have literally no interest whatsoever in anything they showed not a single game this reconfirms Nintendo games are doing nothing for me, and i doubt this will ever change
I’m disappointed personally. I don’t like most of the ‘Japanesey’ games that release on Nintendo systems (jrpgs etc), I’m also older and no longer have interest in their franchises that still feel geared towards kids (Mario, Donkey Kong etc). I really only bought the Switch for Zelda and Metroid and it seems like that’s all I’ll get that’s worthwhile playing for me. Was very disappointed at no announcement of Metroid prime trilogy or re-releases of wind waker/twilight princess/skyward sword. Links awakening might be ok, but that’s the only game coming out I have any interest in. Nintendo just hasn’t kept me interested as a developer after GameCube.
'Nintendo just hasn’t kept me interested as a developer after GameCube.'. Exactly. Also, 2019 began weeks ago, and all I see between now and the end of July is Yoshi and Fire Emblem. If that's, 'stellar', then some people are very easily pleased.
Mario Maker 2 is June.
It honestly seems like Nintendo fans are the most loyal, blindly fanatical video game fans there are. A good friend is a massive Nintendo fan and openly admits he’ll blindly suck up anything they produce. I blame no one but myself for buying a Switch that sits around gathering dust.
Harryvok Have you paid any attention to the Sony fans around here? They’re far worse than the Nintendo fans.
Yeah this Direct was great IMO, there's very little in the way of exclusives that I'm not interested in on Switch. Astral Chain and that Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake look phenomenal too me. Fire Emblem: Three Houses has me sold and prior to that show I wasn't that interest in Mario Maker, but Maker 2 looks like a lot of fun. Yoshi's Crafted World and Daemon X Machina are right around the corner, the demos were fun to play too, great looking games all round. If that was all that was coming as exclusives this year, I'd consider that as a great lineup, but 2019 also has a full on big Pokémon game, Luigi's Mansion 3 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, that's 8 full on exclusives, along with a remake that may as well be a proper exclusive too. There's also more likely being revealed in the not too distant future. Switch's 2019 lineup looks phenomenal.
I uhhh I dunno if stellar is the right word. Lotta remakes/ports. Underwhelming.
Literally the only remake/remastered coming out of the Direct are Rune Factory 4 (which never has been on a home console before) and and Zelda. How is that alot? Unless you count AC3 remaster which come out on every platform available out there.
Apart from Platinum's new games, It was meh imo.
Fire Emblem is all I need for 2019 with Nintendo. The rest is bonus.
God, I love Fire Emblem. The whole school/three houses things look interesting, but I'm curious to see what the story is like. Hopefully everything cones together really well.
Very optimistic when it comes to how Nintendo handles FE these days.
Shinen, Fast racing on Switch is freaking fantastic, in handheld mode. The graphics, and framerates, the Switch can handle, for that game, is impressive for a launch game. Odyssey, is Brilliant, just fun to play. I just picked a Switch up two weeks ago, and love it. For only being $299, and all of the technology, in the System, it is for being 2 years old, impressive. I have Xbox One X, but I have to say, Nintendo, is the Disney of video games. They aim for the experience, overall, and reinvent their mascots, in many fantastic ways, It keeps them fresh. I say this right after playing 25 min of Crackdown 3 on X1X, boring, uneventful so far. I put Odyssey in, and after 20 min, knew it would be amazing, and it is.
The switch sure is amazing, as it dips to 18 frames per second in pokemon: https://mobile.twitter.com/...
That is undocked, and could be patched. The switch is a very capable system for what it is. It certainly has more power and memory than Wii U, which was more powerful than ps3 or 360, in a handheld. Why bash it? Odyssey looks brilliant, as do a bunch of Switch games. I have X1X, for console power. Guess what? Switch games on my 65inch 4K HDR, look FANTASTIC.
I couldn’t bring myself to finish Odyssey. I’m just over the ‘kid friendly’ Nintendo franchises, they can’t keep my interest anymore. Now that I’m older, really only more ‘adult’ oriented western RPGs can keep me entertained for the long haul. I’m really just waiting for Metroid, my Switch gathers dust for now.
Uh, I am 47, love my COD, Assassins Creed, yada,yada. Odyssey is AMAZING. The perfection in that game, is rarely found. I have played way more video games in my life than you, I would assume. Although there were long bouts in my life that I did not play. I have been back to them for the past 8 years. Maybe, in the future, revisit Odyssey. You may change your mind. I know you said western RPG, but have you seen this? https://www.youtube.com/wat...
So hyped for Astral Chain and Maker 2!
yeah sure, i didn't know bayonetta 3 released this year
