    I will always be a big fan of FFVII. Especially in context, it was an amazing game and as the first JRPG that I really got into, it set expectations that other JRPGs have been struggling and failing to meet ever since. This is already making me want to replay it; I'm really looking forward to the next article.

    I really enjoyed the original trilogy. It's the best space opera game I can think of. Glad to hear the new game seems to be shaping up well.

    Yeah I find the idea that this is a spoiler odd as well. And I'm not trying to criticize Nadia or USGamer, I think they're just following current practices, as they should. But if this is considered a spoiler now, what ISN'T a spoiler? Wouldn't every screen shot be "spoiling" some part of the game?Edited 5 weeks ago by Unknown

    Somehow I'd never seen that Power/Rangers video, although I remember it caused a stir when it was taken down. I just watched the first 2:30 minutes. Not a fan. Hopefully the Castlevania cartoon does a better job of being... watchable.

    Well, I have several things going right now. I basically haven't quite decided what my approach is going to be post Christmas (and my birthday is not that long before Christmas either, so I'll throw that in their too). Between the two gift events I scored a number of games, all of which I've sampled and none of which I've really committed to playing first. However I'm leaning towards Dragon Quest Heroes as I was really digging that. I'm also almost done with a replay of Alundra - which is a game I like a whole lot. So actually, most literally, Alundra is what I've been playing the past couple of days.

    The more I think about it the more I think I'm going to buy it right around launch. I'm pretty much sold.

    My interest is now 0.

    I totally agree Jeremy, I was surprised to see not one, not two, but THREE new JRPG announcements, all of which looked pretty neat! Also presumably Dragon Quest XI will make it to America and be pretty good. So at least four cool looking JRPGs already - is that an unprecedented quantity for a reveal presentation?

    Also, I have been wanting another Mario 64-esque Mario game for ages, and it's finally coming! I couldn't be more excited about that. And Zelda looks absolutely stunning.

    So yeah, it really pushed the right buttons for me. I even thought Arms looked cool - it reminds me a bit of Virtual On. I am concerned though that they did not do enough to persuade fence sitters. Consumers who are understandably skeptical of Nintendo - what did they see? Overall I wonder if it was a bit too Japanese focused? It's also surprising that they didn't highlight a few more of the upcoming games, like Mario Kart Deluxe. But overall I'm really on board with this system right now.Edited January 2017 by Unknown

    I mean, as somebody who is already a Nintendo fan I was onboard with pretty much everything I saw there. I'm pleased with the JRPGs, in particular, and I'm SUPER excited for the new Mario. I was hoping to hear a bit more about third party support and what sort of first party games Nintendo had up its sleeve. I had pretty big expectations on that front since 2016 had been such a light year. But what they showed, I liked - even 1-2 Switch, which I thought looked like a possibly interesting party game.

    But I still kept thinking, "What is the selling point for normal consumers?" As someone who bought a Wii-U on launch day I am not the audience Nintendo needs to convince. What about all the people who are already skeptical of Nintendo? What about all the people (I know a couple myself) who bought a Wii-U and felt burned by it? They will not even match the Wii-Us performance if they can't convince people that this is going to be very different.

    I'm not convinced that there's a problem with the Switch. I think people were being unrealistic on the price. I mean, a 720p touch screen tablet that can seamlessly "switch" between outputting to a TV and operating as a handheld, with detachable controller pieces with enough power to run essentially contemporary games, such as Skyrim, and people thought this was a $200 device? I don't understand that. But anyway, where Nintendo DOES have a problem is with messaging - and, incredibly, with game releases, or lack there of. Last night was not the time to be coy - last night was the time to wow everyone with a shock and awe campaign of amazing releases. Well, they did that a little, but not nearly to the degree that I expected and incredibly they actually held back on some stuff, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. One is left to wonder, "Is this all they have?" in which case, sound the alarms. Or, did they save some bombshells possibly even for today, with the Treehouse events - in which case fire your marketing team!

    All in all, I don't know that I would agree that it was the worst case scenario, but I suspect this presentation did not do much to get fence sitters on board. Rather the opposite actually, and in that sense it was a step backwards.

    Of course it's Zelda - it's always Zelda. Zelda is my most anticipated game of every year that a proper Zelda game comes out.
