I wish Nintendo would stop having these special Nintendo Directs.

I want them to cover more than just one game. This is ridiculous. I can understand doing it every now and then, but we've had like 5 of them this year. It's just annoying.

Don't watch them live, just look up directs post-showing and watch the ones covering stuff you care about.

Personally I'd rather have directs about individual games then one giving only 5 minutes to each.

Yeah, Nintendo should stop advertising their upcoming games.

Great idea: don't watch them and move on. Why get easily annoyed by something you can AVOID?

That's err.... what TV commercials are for. Not 30 minute long broadcasts that only fanboys will watch.

You guys are missing the point. I'm not saying don't talk about these games, I just want them to cover more stuff. You know, like more software/hardware. For example: Virtual Console or Miiverse updates. Cause frankly, those two are pathetic right now. And more info on the new gamecube controllers.

Whats wrong if they do both? Right now as far as hardware and up coming software they have nothing to announce yet. Really at this point if its not ready I don't want them putting up a direct just saying well these things are coming out date tba. Its fine when there is footage and actual dates to work with than do a Direct. As far as the game Direct I think thats the best thing they can do to get their message out since they don't seem to market their games anymore and the press for the post part ignores Nintendo until there is some bad news. For games I don't care about the Direct is ignored by me example that Tomagotchi thing I have no intrest and I couldn't even tell you what it is. Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2 games that I have an interest so I will watch those directs if only to just kill a few minutes. I am one of those people that don't mind spoilers either because by the thing is over I will most likely forget them anyway.

Virtual Console wont ever get a huge focus. Last gen was proof of that. Nintendo doesn't seem to care a ton about the retro gamers out there. NES Remix is about the only exception to this. Most people have gotten games illegally for a while now, so its pretty clear Virtual Console isnt going to bring in huge profits at all. If Nintendo would've done more retro collections starting on GameCube, perhaps Virtual Console would matter more now.
