    More Fire Emblem is always good. Wish they'd use this momentum to try to revive Advance Wars though.
    Switch FE is great news too, that brings must buy Switch game count up to 3 for me. (4 if SMT isn't multiplatform)

    @neilhood I would buy a cheaper TV only version in a heartbeat. I doubt that'll ever happen though. I care about the games more than the portability.

    As someone who never got a Wii U I'd be really happy to have some sort of ports or backwards compatibility with Wii U games. Mainly I don't want to miss out on Mario Maker, Mario 3d Land and Xenoblade. Get those 3 Wii U games on the Switch and I'll be likely to buy it sooner rather than later.

    I feel kind of bad to admit that I went into the presentation almost certain I'd be preordering a Switch and Zelda but I came out of the presentation pretty certain that I'm just going to wait instead.

    I want Zelda, I knew that from before. I don't have a Wii U figuring I'd just get the Switch to play Breath of the Wild, but I also assumed the presentation would have revealed a few more games to get excited about. It really didn't do that for me, only other games that interested me were Mario which is basically a year away, and Shin Megami Tensei which might end up on PS4 too for all I know. So basically I'm left to wonder do I really want to play Breath of the Wild so bad that I'm willing to basically use this $300 device for one game and then let it collect dust until Winter.

    I can't do it. I'll miss out on Zelda and that makes me sad but hell that $350 will be put towards Persona 5, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mass Effect Andromeda, and games already out that I've missed like FF15, Dragon Quest 7 and Builders, Fire Emblem Fates etc.

    The games just weren't there for me. Funny enough I watched the Playstation Experience last month just out of curiosity and by the end of it I was convinced I needed to buy a PS4. The exact opposite of what happened with Nintendo. I guess it's not fair to compare the PS4 to the Switch but at the end of the day, for the money and the number of games I wanted to play I finally let myself grab a PS4 during one of the many sales during December. Sony sold me, Nintendo left me underwhelmed.

    Still cautiously excited about the Fire Emblem direct next week though...

    In a perfect world of unlimited money and no time constraints I'd be happy to throw down $350 for Zelda, the game has me hype THAT much. Then I think about all the other games I'll be playing in 2017, Horizon, Persona 5, games I've missed like FF15... then suddenly I'm having a hard time justifying a purchase right now. The only other game I'm interested in would be Mario and SMT which aren't coming out any time soon.

    It's weird, I went in excited, then remembered to lower my expectations, and I still ultimately feel underwhelmed.

    Honestly the $300 price wouldn't bother me if there were anything else to be excited about, but that's just an expensive paper weight once I'm done with Zelda. Sometimes I'd wish Nintendo would take a chance on some lower budget games like 2D Metroid or Advance Wars again. Man, this just makes me sad.

    Man I am SO hyped for Zelda. ... but I've had some time to cool down and think things through with regards to my time and money and honestly I'm not sure I will be grabbing this day one after all... I'd be basically paying $350 just to play Zelda. I mean, I really REALLY want to play the new Zelda and I don't have a Wii U... but asides from Mario and SMT, I'm not really feeling anything else at the moment. Suddenly feel like I've gone from getting it day one 100% HYPE to maybe I'll just wait a few months.

    I wonder how much 1-2 Switch will be or maybe it's a pack in like Wii Sports? Can't really see myself dropping any money on it. Weird to launch with just that and Zelda but I guess they feel confident in Breath of the Wild.

    I mean, I'm getting it, I got to have that Zelda

    Man. RIP. You know as a kid I was always disappointed that Nintendo changed Mario and Luigi's voice from what I became so accustomed to in the cartoons to Martinet's voice. Loved those cartoons.

    @lonecow I played through the trilogy last year after having only played ME1 back in the day. ME3 isn't perfect but it was enjoyable enough, if you liked 1 or especially 2, you should definitely play through 3. I didn't do any multiplayer or use any guides and I was still easily able to get a good ending. ME 2 and 3 have issues for sure but they are still decent games. Personally ME1 is the best imo but I'm glad to have played through them all finally.

    Oh and shame about no mod support. I had to jump through some ridiculous hoops to mod in controller support for the PC version of ME2 and 3. Really hope they change their tune on this but I wont hold my breath.Edited 2 weeks ago by Unknown

    That sucks, while I can't stand the main character I did love the idea behind the game.
