Yeah me neither. M+R would've made a decent mobile game but I'm just not looking for animated "chess" type games for my consoles. Nor am I looking for kiddy/cartoony farm sims. Nor am I looking for anime heavy cell shaded games.

Bottom line is Nintendo is no longer speaking to me with their software and hasn't for a little while now. Now some would say that's a me problem and maybe it is. Maybe I'm just not their demographic anymore. But you know what? My 10 and 6 year olds certainly are and even THEY don't touch our Switch all that often, outside of the occasional round of Mario Kart. I just feel like Nintendo shouldve been doing a better job of offering the kinds of games that more core gamers prefer. I've said it before but it's been almost 2 years since I really played my Switch (Luigis Mansion 3, 2019). If BOTW 2 comes out and it's just more of the same, you know what? I think I'm good! I'm not dying to get back into that vast empty world again. Unless we see a major step up in making it seem more alive, along with better story telling/character development, I'll probably pass on it. Metroid Prime 4 seems like my last hope for dusting off my Switch unless Nintendo really shocks us today with some brand new game reveals that speak to me.

That Game and Watch thing they showed was neat. I'm sure they'll make 10 of them.

Agreed. Besides Metroid Dread I thought the show was a giant popcorn fart. E3 was a crushing disappointment this year. They shouldn't have even bothered.

Honestly disappointed in the direct.

No Metroid Prime 4 but the new Metroid looks cool.
No Zelda Anniversary Collection and BOTW 2 still far away.
A new Mario Party game that should just be an update for the current one.

Looks like my Switch will stay put away for awhile. Just gonna work on my backlog on PS5.

I wish Nintendo would make high end consoles like Sony and Microsoft.

What kind of Backlog? There has been only three PS5 titles so far. Demons Soul, Returnal and Ratchet and Clank. Should be possible to be played during almost 8 months, or?

so no pro?

overall, I thought it was an alright show. I'm sold on WarioWare and Metroid Dread.

the new trailer of BOTW2 is lame, but I'm buying that game anyway

I think I want to buy this for Zelda 2.

I haven’t watched both Nintendo Directs yet, did the Cave stg games get announced for international? I love Espgaluda II, Mushihime Sama, and DoDonPachi Resurrection, I still keep my Xbox 360 connected for these games (and a few more).

Yep, it was mostly a waste of time and the things announced that were good could have easily been a twitter drop between all of the big shows (outside of Xbox which I didn’t watch).

Specifically for Nintendo, no Donkey Kong, no Xenoblade/Monolith Soft new IP, nothing on Prime 4, nothing on Bayonetta 3, nothing on Pokemon, etc.

Is this where we say “ok they are saving it for the September direct!”?

Disclaimer: this is total first world problems. I have at least 5-6 more games I am buying coming out for the rest of the year.

I have not played my switch since the PS5 came out and after this switch direct I am probably still not going to play it anytime soon.

Well I was going to play Metroid Dread but I'm not paying 60.00 in 2021 for a 2D Metroid game, sorry.

E3 2021 in a nutshell:

Elden Ring only game worth the hype.
Here are updates for games you have seen multiple times.
A reminder that the games you really want are years away.

The only thing I can honestly say that wowed me out of the entire show was Forza Horizon 5. It was the only game that looked next gen and impressive. Everything is was just so "meh".
