Back in the late 90s/early 2000’s I used to watch a lot of wrestling, and I mean a lot. I was basically glued to all their programming on the USA network and with that came repetitive commercials. There were plenty of clever commercials but no matter how funny it may have been if you watch it hundreds of times you’re bound to get sick of it.

I recently decided to re-watch Wonder Showzen and I can say that it’s an underated gem, I say that since most people seem to have forgotten about the show. It was never a huge show but some people seemed to watch it and now almost no one ever brings it up. I wasn’t sure how well it would show up since it very well could’ve been a product of its time.
I’ve noticed if you wait a while after something that you’re hyped about and re-analyze what you’re thinking then is more likely to be what you think about it in the future once the original hype died down. So let’s take a look at the Nintendo Direct for September 1st. Continue reading Post-Hype: Nintendo Direct September 2016→
Nintendo Directs were somewhat frequent and usually came out of nowhere. Sometimes they were very good and sometimes very disappointing. Nevertheless having these mini-E3’s through out the year was excellent. While we have had less Directs since Satoru Iwata passed away last year and we used to have Directs without Iwata something just isn’t the same. I don’t know if it’s just me, the lack of frequent Directs or associating Directs with Iwata. I can’t say it’s the quality of the content since it didn’t matter if it had been terrible or great but they always had plenty of hype surrounding them. Nintendo has made a few announcements since the last Direct just through other means like the NES mini which they could’ve just gotten a few of those announcements and made them into a Direct but they chose not to so maybe they kind of know as well. While I don’t want just random announcements instead of something like the Directs to build hype surrounding them I’ll just say that something is not there anymore and maybe it’s time for Nintendo to retire them in favor of an alternative.
