i can summarize the event for you guys now

NOA: we still exist and the Wii U definitely is a device that can be bought in stores. IT IS NOT AN URBAN MYTH.

They are just going to mention the same things they announced in the past 4 months while wearing Pikmin Hats that no one can buy.

I am considering getting a Wii U, but the lack of good games (for me) is holding me back. I hope Nintendo offers a good games plan tomorrow. I want good games from Nintendo and from 3rd party developers. Otherwise, I'll continue to sit on the fence.

I just hope it's for something they haven't already announced.  

October is going to be a solid month for Nintendo...!, yet it would be nice to have something "news".

A lot of Nintendo Directs but not a lot of Game Releasing. They need better priorities.

I want to know more about Zelda U, X and Fire Embelm.

Ok now Wind Waker is out, what else does Nintendo have up it's sleeve?

I hope Nintendo can end this year on a high note with some good games for the WII U, and I don't even own a WII U or Wii. Hopefully this isn't a update on more games being delayed.

MiiVerse for 3DS? Nintendo Network ID for 3DS? Account unification? I HOPE.

They did say that there are still some games coming out this year that they've yet to announce so hopefully that's true and we'll be seeing them tomorrow.

@greenpolyp It makes sense to really advertise the games coming up during the holiday season. 

I hope Nintendo throw in a few surprises like new Metriod, Starfox and Mega Man games with Fire Embelm and Animal Crossing U waiting in the wings. 

Still one can dream eh?

@DiverseGamer 

If by this point you're still not happy with your 3DS, then get rid of it already because there's clearly nothing Nintendo can and would do to make you like the 3DS considering that awesome library of games as well as the amazing line up ahead of it and you're still debating on "keeping your 3DS."

...is Rune Factory 4 really coming out this week?

@Diegoctba Thats 6 games mate mostly sequels that have about 50 games in the series. There is exactly 1 game I am interested in that currently exists on the WIIU. Is it a reason to buy? a big NO

@Diegoctba That's a steller line up by all accounts. I cannot wait for another three days, because that's when I get paid and that's when I can purchase WWHD on release day.

@AttackOfTheCat Well its the same as how most companies use Facebook or Twitter. But you're right, it definitely is more convenient going straight to the console.

@wilson2k9 Between Pikmin 3 and Mario World I think I'll be satisfied. Anything else is icing on the cake.

@abHS4L88 any more hack and slash games like bayoneta would be awesome!! damn even a sweet nice proper Casltevania would be even more awesome!!

I would like to see that Pokemon Wii U from Poekmon Game Show, which was held last month, the company posted a video teaser which looks like Pokemon Stadium with HD. But one could hope if Nintendo talks about it.

@19James89 @greenpolyp  Just saw Super Mario 3D world on Nintendo Direct..........and looks suprisingly good. Just need a Mario RPG now.

@abHS4L88 @DiverseGamer They should also change their username because 'diverse gamer' they most certainly are not.

@Class_Act998675 @sjawz3288 Not at all. I have a 3DS and Wii U. They need to get their act together with the Wii U. The console is dying a quick death and it's only out a year. All get from these Nintendo Directs are apologies for what they're screwing up. Well, fucking fix it. I don't want HD remakes, I want a new fucking game. And not with a TBA 2014 release. Your console is out almost a year now, and you have a tiny-ass library of multi-platform games, remakes, and a really really small handful of new titles. Not good if you ask me.

@Aentikraist

Bayonetta is one of the few hack n slash games I love, the other being Dynasty Warriors (yes I know, haha) but since Platinum is the only developer known for that genre that's supporting the Wii U, I highly doubt we'll see another in a while, which is fine since we just got The Wonderful 101. 

Konami has been pretty silent about their support of the Wii U, leaning more towards not supporting them so maybe they'll surprise us.

@EasyComeEasyGo  

It was confirmed that that screen was first done just for conceptual reasons but then they went on saying that they might turn it into a game. 

Keep in mind that this Direct will be talking about 3DS/Wii U games of THIS year, not next.
