  1. So yeah, about the only really exciting thing were the SNES VC games and more info about Star Fox Zero and it’s new companion game.

    Everything else was meh.

    (Also, **** the Direct chat for the amount of whining about Zelda U and ****ing Mother 3. Got real sick of that **** by the time Fates’ DLC trailer rolled around, and it never stopped afterwards. God, that was annoying. :/)

  2. Overall satisfied. Some titles in the Direct people will never stop complaining about, it was a pretty good 40 minutes. With that said I’ll look into the new Metroid the more gameplay is shown.
