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.
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.

Over a decade ago since we got a really creative video in the still early days of youtube:
Featuring the music of Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. This was a time when youtube was already getting big but it was continuing to grow with lots of talent and this video is one of them. Back then no one gave a damn about licensing music and people uploaded what they wanted. Even nearly a decade later as I re-stumbled onto this video I still feel like it’s as good as it was back then. that was copied by many others including this favorite of mine
When asked to make a favicon and logo for this website I opened my best friend since I was a kid; Paint. I had no idea what I wanted so why not something simple and that’s all I can do in Paint, something simple.
Here I basically post anything I’m thinking so I think it’ll do for the time being. Whether it’s nostalgia, music, politics, video games, cartoons, movies, dinosaurs, philosophy, economics, tech, martial arts or just rants. That icon is so ugly it just may stay around.
What is Miscrave?
A place for anything I find interesting, the site has gone through various transformations online before but is now in the shape of this site. Anything goes, check the About section for a better and updated info on the site. No bells and whistles for this first day of the official launch but instead you’ll see it all pop up in the coming hours and days.
