Discuss? I hope that means show gameplay footage.

Also, where's WWHD? I don't get expect a new 3D Zelda for WiiU to be revealed until probably next year, but I want to see WWHD.

Why would they announce that they're showing new IP and spoil the surprise of...you know, just showing the new IP? And is W101 not new? X?

Nintendo are a company who come up with new gameplay ideas, then implement it into existing IPs because it'd sell better. They still do loads of new IPs, but the fact is that they do not sell

Why the negativity though? Nintendo already announced what they were gonna discuss in the Nintendo Direct, summer games, nothing more, nothing less. Actually they did do more things, like announcing Sega titles.

Not pure hate but the announcements here for most were pretty meh. People were expecting some bigger surprises I guess. Like we saw with the last direct.

It was all just a rehash and then an announcement for a date for a game that should have been released 3 months ago. It was BS.

Seems pretty obvious to me.

They pretty much have to talk about these games, which are literally the biggest upcoming titles for the system that we know of.

Just to be clear, I didn't mind today's direct. I think people forgot the Direct was just covering summer releases

They're having enough trouble getting their own traditional IPs out fast enough. And they do have some new IPs coming like Wonderful 101 and X.

Yeah, this Sonic deal is completely old. Come on

Plus, what's wrong with them revealing dates for games without them? Just because they got delayed so they can be better doesn't mean they should just say "Oh yeah, it's out now"
