Only a couple weeks after Nintendo dropped their first Nintendo Direct of the year, Sony has responded with their equivalent, a State of Play. Generally speaking, I haven’t been too positive on most of the State of Plays, finding that their announcements just never hit the same heights as the ones found in Nintendo’s offerings. But that doesn’t mean the potential for a truly great State of Play isn’t there. Could this be the one?
How About That Direct?
How About That Direct| Nintendo Direct 2/8/2023
After many rumors and lots of speculation, we got our first Nintendo Direct of the year this week. It wasn’t too hard to guess that there would be one, there’s almost always one in either January or February. And sure enough, we got one. Was it any good? You probably already know this, but yes, it was very good. Let’s talk about it.
How About That Direct?| Xbox Developer_Direct 1/25/2023
When I decided to bring back the feature “How About That Direct?”, I assumed that the first post would be about a Nintendo Direct.

How About That Direct?| Animal Crossing Direct 2/20/20
It’s safe to say that Nintendo fans are pretty starved for big announcements. We’re currently in the biggest gap between general Nintendo Directs in the history of Nintendo Directs being a thing and we have no idea what the company plans to release after March. So, when Nintendo announced an Animal Crossing Direct a couple days ago, it was easy to be a little disappointed. But, that game is only a month out and we knew very little about it. So, from that sense, this makes sense. Continue reading
How About That Direct? | Pokemon Direct 1/9/20
At the start of every year, Nintendo fans start to go a little crazy. There’s always an early Nintendo Direct that highlights what to expect In the first several months and sometimes stuff even further off. As such, it was a little disappointing when Nintendo announced a couple days ago that the first Direct of the year would be one focused on Pokemon, rather than a more general Nintendo Direct. But hey, I like Pokemon, so maybe there will be something cool here. Continue reading
