Feature: Memorable Nintendo Direct Moments

Over the years, Nintendo’s press conferences have produced some truly memorable moments, showcasing the fun that is at the heart of the company’s development philosophy. E3 showcases for games such as Wii Sports and Wii Fit became show highlights for many attendees, which not only served to promote and strengthen Nintendo’s message, but also provided unique entertainment.

Nintendo Directs are the bomb! So good :) Hope Nintendo keeps on doing them for a long time. My biggest suprise this year was the unveiling of the 3DSXL during a Nintendo direct.

Now my 3DSXL and Wiiu stand side by side forming the ultimate Gaming Brotherhood.

Xbox 360 has been given to a charity shop , Ps3 has been sold , Wii has been given to little cousin .
Now time to choose between Xbox 720 and ps4 to join the brotherhood.

These things are a guilty pleasure of mine. I like how light hearted and infomal they are. Plus, this setting allows Nintendo to inject its quirky sense of humor, which reminds me of those 90's video promos for games that you got in the mail sometimes.

That said,I cringe every time the developers talk. The lines seem incredibly forced/phoned in.

First Yoshi's Island WiiU in that miiverse 'hack' back in week 1. And now the suggestion that the fruit thing in the Direct's is actually a hint... Hmmm....
