I'm still surprised Pay Day 2 is coming to the Switch. I never would've guessed that game would ever seen the light on a Nintendo Console.

This direct was Okay. ARMS has my interest, but I'm not really into Splatoon or Spla2n. Plus I still don't have a Switch, and probably won't until my Birthday or Christmas.

  • Ultra Street Fighter II - May 26
  • Another one eh?

    Capcom exec 1: "Hey, when was the last time we released Street Fighter II? 8 years ago?"
    Capcom exec 2: "Bout time then. Just slap a different word onto the title. Send out the order!"
    Capcom exec 1: "O-tsukaresama deshita!"
    Capcom exec 2: "Indeed, now let's get back to screwing coke and snorting hookers in highschool girl uniforms[1]!"

    I eagerly await Super Mega Giga Ultra Street Fighter II Supersonic Hyper Turbo UHD 4K Remix Redux: The Ultimate New Final Challengers

    / Sarcasm.

    Actually, a rerelease collection of all the classic 2d Street Fighters would be pretty neat. Free idea here, Capcom, do with it as you will.

    [1] Whether the execs or the hookers are wearing the uniforms is up to you

    Arms has my interest now!
    Afew other titles here as well which might be purchases for me.

    That's what, 90% ports, re-releases and cross-platform titles?

    Payday 2? Are you serious, Nintendo?

    Sorry, dropped that game back on October 15th, 2015. I'm sure you all know why...

    You're missing Splatoon 2's release date: July 21 and Arms: June 16

    I don't care too much for Splatoon 2 but it doesn't look bad. If there's more for a single-player to do than in the previous than I'm sold and...well I guess I'm practically there.

    Min Min is a stupid name but it's kinda funny that there's already r34 of her. I can practically see Nintendo ad-reps trying to contain themselves when designing her with thoughts of Overwatch pre-release porn hype in their minds.

    I'm not sure which is more surprising to me: The announcement that Payday 2 is going to be launching on Switch or the continued silence from Bethesda about Skyrim.

    Hey, the Japanese Direct revealed that a new Senran Kagura is in the works for Switch. It's going to feature HD Rumble. It...It seems like breast-fondling will be a feature but no actual gameplay was shown, just suggestive images of jiggling flan and people in lab coats squeezing balloons.
