What was disappointing about it? Nintendo specifically said that this direct would be focused on upcoming games this Spring, and that's exactly what it was. They even had the courtesy to throw in some surprises like Little Mac in Smash 4, the Koopa kids in MK8, and a new gameplay trailer for X. The Direct met my expectations just fine. The big guns will be brought out when E3 rolls around. But even without any big announcements today, Smash 4, MK8, X, NES Remix 2, Shovel Knight, and plenty of other games are looking awesome and I'm glad to have a Wii U.

I have heard nothing but good things about the 2DS, so if money is a factor in your decision that would definitely be the one to get.
We're overdue for a new Star Fox game, and Miyamoto -- the man who gets what he wants -- said he wants Star Fox on the Wii U. With Nintendo's internal studios basically going dark after Mario Kart in May, I think they've something in the works, and I have a gut feeling it's Star Fox.
I really hope you are correct, sir.
Things are looking great for this year, but I really hope Nintendo has some BIG reveals up their sleeve for E3.
Please, for the love of everything holy, PLEASE reveal a new Metroid game...
Is that available now? Definitely thought that one looked interesting. Shovel Knight should be another great eShop game too.
You know, not to get too far off-topic here, but I was thinking a little bit about some of those old IPs I was sifting through last night, and I got to thinking about how some of them might work out well with the Wii-U hardware.
I keep coming back to the concept of mystery-novel-type games. Games like Nintendo Detective Club, Another Code (Trace Memory) and Hotel Dusk, which kind of made a comeback on the DS there. I think having a second, separate screen could be useful in a game like that for interacting with and examining evidence.
I also think it would be interesting in a new Trauma Center, if Atlus made another one. I can see you being able to use the gamepad to control a scope being inserted into a patient, or to control microscopic nano-bots that repair stuff.
I would be very interested in everything you mentioned. The Wii U would be such a great console for a great detective game (heck, Batman: Arkham City: Armored Edition already showed off how that could work).
Definitely stoked for Shovel Knight.
It's an interesting question. I mean after all, 90% of the games I buy for my Nintendo systems are first party games and exclusives. So if getting rid of third party games meant more great first party ones, then I personally would be okay with that. However, there are many people that are not like me and like having a lot of third party options as well. So in the end, I think third party games need to stick around because it will definitely please more people.
If I had to recommend just one game to you, I would say Fire Emblem Awakening. A very very close second is Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. But seriously, there are so many great games on 3DS that you just need to get right to work and start playing them all!
...but I finally unlocked the Diamond Cup in F-Zero GX. Now to start working toward those AX tracks. Maybe by the early 2020's.
Holy crap! You too? I finally whipped out GX this past summer and had forgotten just how much fun it was. At one point, I decided to look up how to unlock everything, and to my shocking surprise there was another cup!!! Took me 10 years to figure that out too!
