GOT2LISTEN Special: Reactions to Nintendo's 11.12.15 Direct

Last week gamers were gifted with a pleasant surprise in the form of a new Nintendo Direct, the first one since the late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata's passing. The folks at GOT2GAME decided to hold off from talking about it during last week's GOT2LISTEN podcast as that show is going through a bit of a transformation.

The plan is to move away from speaking about news on a weekly basis and instead bring the fans a more curated form of content that will ALWAYS be relevant rather than trending newsbits.

That said, GOT2GAME can't avoid nor ignore when some amazing news happens, and Nintendo really did surprise the gaming community with the amount of content it packed into this month's 50 minute Nintendo Direct.

While there was three separate Directs for each major region in the world, they all for the most part had the same news, but GOT2GAME curated all of the relevant info into one long but jam packed podcast discussion with friend from the rising sun, Tony Inkwell Conte of LoveoftheGamer fame!

Have a listen as Avedon and Tony talk about Nintendo's latest announcements, game releases, and the big surprises involving favorite franchises of the past.

What new news could this possibility deliver. Unless they announce A new Metroid game the size on Mass Effect One, I personally don't care.

Stop man. just stop. You are making yourself look bad...not Nintendo.

* Anyways, back to reality:

* Final Fantasy Explorers 3DS
* Fire Emblem: Birthright, Conquest, Revelations
^ 3 FE games.
* Dragon Quest 7 3DS
* Dragon Quest 8 3DS
* Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD - Wii U
* Pokken Tournament
* Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
* Cloud in Smash Brothers Wii U
* Legend of Zelda U
* Paper Mario & Luigi
* Xenoblade Chronicles X - Wii U

Just stop trolling.

There was a ton of awesome in that Direct and the announcement of Dragon Quest 7 & 8 3DS made it pretty epic in a lot of fans minds.

Bringing DQ 7&8 over to the US helps ensure we get DQ11 3DS/NX in U.S. as well.

It's like your TRYING not to see reality.

In fairness to the idiotic comment, I'm pretty sure he misread the date and was speculating on a *future* Direct. IE one on December 11th, 2015.

@ Sly

Fair point.
But let's see what the guy has to say for himself before we assume either way.

3-4-51065d ago

Could be...but even then he's assuming the next Direct will be bad, which makes no sense.

The only bad direct there has ever been sadly was the last one Iwata was alive for...the one previous to this.

The next Direct will have more Zelda U info, and soon enough we get a NX exclusive Direct as well.

I don't see them getting worse any time soon, but I don't know so I can't assume.

I was happy with it. Especially for FE, DQ7&8.

Sly-Lupin1065d ago

I wouldn't say that. If there was a Direct scheduled for early December, I wouldn't expect much from it. Would you? All of the big news was in last week's Direct, it stands to reason that another one so soon after the other would be either focused on one thing specifically (IE DLC) or on leftover stuff that didn't make the November Direct.

@Wonderful Monkey Man -- Personally I'd rather make an error by giving someone the benefit of the doubt, than make an error indicting them.

3-4-51065d ago

Understandable, and I was more so implying the next would be in early 2016, I should have specified that.

They just announced all the future early 2016 stuff though so I don't see why they would have a December Direct. They've already shown us a glimpse of all the early 2016 stuff.

I'd think the next would be about stuff we see around E3 or slightly post E3.

Like they could have a normal Direct right before Fire Emblem in Feb, and then the next one after that in April/May would be NX.

if you guys did a past comment search on him you'd see the truth behind what he he a he just ignorant... or ...

but he/she does like Metroid ( i think)

I know it's a little bit of work to go and investigate the past comments but sometimes you see a pattern...
