That has to be their worst Direct since the Switch launched - at least for my tastes.

SNES and Banjo are only highlights for me. I'm also happy about Xenoblade being remastered, as I've never played it and it's meant to be excellent. As a "one last thing", though...?

There are several games I want to play. Luigi's Mansion, Xenoblade remake, Doom 64. I just don't think there were any surprises or genuinely exciting new games announced. Direct's usually contain at least one.

I'd say pound for pound, this is one of the best Directs, personally. Not a lot explicitly to my tastes but game after game of quality. If you're into RPGs especially, it's insane.

Lots of games I'd like to try on Switch that I probably wouldn't elsewhere. Divinity 2, Tokyo Mirage, XC1, Obra Dinn, all meant to be brilliant but I never played them. Deadly Premonition and sequel. Overwatch, Ni no Kuni, Vampyr, Trials of Mana.

SNES Online games are exactly what I wanted.

Little Town Hero and AC will tempt me.

Link's Awakening I never played. Never played a LM game. DxM looks better than the first demo, will try the new one out.

Nothing mind blowing but a relentless stream of quality.

It helps that, imo, we're currently experiencing the best run of Nintendo games that I can remember. Assuming that the Link's Awakening remake and Luigi's Mansion sequel are good, that will be 5 consecutive months of hits. Plus, it's possible Daemon X and Pokemon might end up being better than expected, as well. I can't remember them ever having a run of quality games so close together like that.

Yeah, I'm really hoping that I continue to be happily surprised and proven wrong about this year's exclusives. FE and AC have made me look like a total dunce.

Another factor is that while the third party support is mostly ports, we're getting proper versions of some of the greatest games ever made all the time. Having improved editions of the highlights of last gen and palatable versions of some current gen cross-platform big names is massive. The Wii U stuff in particular has added real depth, even for me as a late Wii U owner who bought everything decent but hardly played on it.

I said ages ago that it would be the third year which determined where it was going, because I kind of expected a lighter second year, and it didn't start brilliantly but I don't think it's ever had such momentum, I agree. And even if new AC and Poke aren't my things, they will be colossally successful and sell a shit load of consoles.

All of those games are great.... besides Vampyr. Really disliked that. Clunky gameplay and awful fights. Not worth the money.

Just cropping up to mention Mrs Ferris has nicked my Switch and is using it exclusively to play West of Loathing which she is enjoying very much, as I understand it.
