From his post history it looks like he got a bit frustrated with the usual suspects posting troll flamebait about how glad they'll be when Nintendo goes bust (or whatever).


Oh :(

jawa was also watching and commenting on my Rogue Leader stream on Wednesday, which was on the GRcade channel, so he's still with us, in some way :wub:

He's been posting over on SONM so at least we know he's OK. Hopefully he'll come back soon.


Didn't realise he got so frustrated. Apologies jawa, you are missed and i love Nintendo!

I hate it when people start saying 'well E3 has become increasingly irrelevant from a business perspective for a number of years now...'

So many great memories associated with E3, some of the huge announcements that have been made over the years and most of them from Nintendo, so to see them move away is massively disappointing. I don't like the Directs for E3 as they don't have the same impact that you get when Miyamoto comes out on stage with a Master Sword and shield to announce a new Zelda.

I'm with DML.

Nintendo was always the part of E3 I looked forward to the most. This year... meh.

Yes they're finally going to show Zelda, which I've been waiting for since I got my Wii U, but not having anything else is just horrendously disappointing.

None of the other conferences have anything I'm particularly looking forward to, so hopefully they'll have some nice surprises at least.
Check out some of our stuff!

Its going to be an odd year to be a Nintendo fan, i'm still holding out hope that they will be quiet for the next few months and then announce a Spaceworld return towards the end of the year (maybe around same time as TGS) showcasing what Ninty fans can except over the next few years

I'm really not looking forward to E3 much at all any more. Microsoft and PlayStation will be all VR mini-games and .5 consoles, and Nintendo will be showing purely Zelda. I genuinely love Zelda, but it's because I love it that I don't want to spoil too much. I guess though, that this is the opportunity for third parties to shine.

PlayStation won't have a lot of VR stuff on the main conference, you can bet they will have some huge announcements again.

Xbox will be interesting, they will obviously have some big game announcements, but will likely have some cool stuff regarding their new PC focus too.

Nintendo not doing anything at E3 is a massive disappointment as E3 is the time of year that the mass media report on gaming.

I just want to be excited by Sony IP but they have been pulling out stinkers as of late, minus Uncharted 4.

They better bring their exclusive AAA game.

He blamed you and Nick more or less for him leaving.

I got blamed by some guy who joined for a month and left citing me and I got a month ban, for using a laughing emoticon. The s*** you and nick get away with is mental.

You need a million of them to make the trade even close to fair.

I just searched on here and his last post was this:

The wii was a fluke, a one off and they failed to build upon it. If they had simply released an upgraded wii they would have done better imo, but most casuals thought the wii u was just the controller!

I would prefer nintendo go software only, with sony as their hardware partner.

You know, I like to think that I'm usually reasonable here on GRcade. I try to avoid coming out with too much of the kind of pony that one or two people indulge in. But there comes a point where you realise that the approach isn't worthwhile.

I kinda expect to see gamerforever and NickSCFC running wild in the Nintendo threads, enjoying their fun in the sun; this is a glorious moment for them. But... even here... in a PlayStation Store thread.. we still can't avoid their crap about Nintendo.

Amazing times.

This place has plenty of Nintendo fanboys I don't see why anyone should get too upset by one or two Sony nut jobs.

Well, they won't get rid of me but they are VERY annoying, the fact they are in Xbox Threads at all winds me up but I try my best to ignore them.
