Bit underwhelmed by the Direct announcements if I'm honest, nothing really tickles my fancy.

Best Direct they've done in a while. Shame you couldn't find anything you liked.

Definite purchases:

Super Mario Maker 2
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3
Fire Emblem Three Houses
Deltarune
Astral Chain
Link's Awakening
Tetris 99

Will give the Daemon X Machina demo a go and see what that's like (it's up now.) If Persona 5 doesn't come out on Switch then I'll probably get Dragon Quest XI if it doesn't release too close to Pokemon.

Definite purchases for me:

Dragon Quest XI
Final Fantasy IX
Bloodstained (I’m a backer so I get this anyway)
Astral Chain
Link’s Awakening

Crafty Yoshi (so crafty he didn’t pay his tax return amirite) is the next rung below, i.e. almost certain purchase so long as they don’t stuff it up. And Hollow Knight Silksong, natch (not in the Direct). There are also a whole lot of maybes of varying strengths.

Disappointed Final Fantasy IX is so expensive, but I'll probably pick it up in a sale. Is it just a port of the PC version so it's "HD"?

Has there actually been any evidence leaked that points towards a Metroid HD collection? To me it just seems like wishful thinking and rumours stirred up by fans. Don't get me wrong, I want it and it seems like a no-brainer of a move given the delay to mp4

Nope, it’s all completely from “insiders”.

For what it’s worth though, King Zell on ResetEra says it’s coming and last week confirmed the Direct date as well as Mario Maker 2, Box Boy and 2D Zelda.

Nope just speculation from "insiders".

Been ages since I've played Armoured Core but Daemon x Machina seems pretty similar to it in a lot of place. Controls take a bit of getting used to but it looks like they're completely customisable. Performance is poor on the second mission so I hope they get that sorted for launch. Seems pretty fun and there's a ton of gear customisations which I love in these sort of games.

I'm sure this has been commented on before, but 2019 for the Switch really is 2013 for the 3DS:

Luigi's Mansion 2 - Luigi's Mansion 3
New Leaf - Animal Crossing
Fire Emblem Awakening - Three Houses
Link Between Worlds - Link's Awakening
Pokémon X & Y - Pokémon Gen 8

2013 was a big year for the 3DS and considering it is all but done this year, I wonder how much of the above is a deliberate strategy by Nintendo to try and convert 3DS owners who have yet to make the move to Switch.

That was a tremendous year for the 3DS. Did that have Kid Icarus Uprising too? I suppose Daemon x Machina would be the vague parallel!

That was March 2012 it seems.

A Tetris Battle Royale is such a daft sounding thing on paper, but it's a complete blast to play.

My girlfriend loves Tetris, and she's regularly placing in the top 20.

I, however, have yet to crack the top 60. One game I had 7 people target me from the get-go, and I didn't even last 30 seconds.

Came in number 2 on my first go of Tetris. Could have won if I didn't panic.

I've got my original ff7 copy in the loft with a ps3 I can play it on now.

I've got it on my vita which is in this room. I could play it now.

SO WHY AM I GOING TO BUY IT AGAIN FOR THE SWITCH FFS :fp:
