I'm actually liking the sound of this. The Nintendo Direct videos are basically miniature E3 presentations, and as bizarre as it might sound to have no E3 conference, it's only weird because everyone's gotten so used to the spectacle and one-upsmanship that generally happens there. Remember Cirque Du Soleil?

I'm looking forward to the possibility of a world where E3 is less about bullshit and more about games.

This. I look forward to each Nintendo Direct video because it is - well - direct. No fancy bullshit marketing. I remember they did something smart last year with their online presence by updating their E3 page with new videos and the like. I'm looking forward to seeing what new Nintendo Direct joy will birth from E3 2013.

My boss doesn't know how to use apostrophes properly. This makes me slightly sad.

That indentation in Allard's head is where they removed the uncool part of his brain.

I stop listening when Brad goes on about bloody DOTA. Two Bombcasts in a row now.

I drink beer every time Ryan says "rogue-like". I don't even know what it is! Haha!

I'm hoping that they start the unveiling by ordering pizza. :)

@assinass: I am indeed. Bearded chap on the right in front of the other bearded chap. Hang on. All those men on the right have beards. Beards.

It is pretty exciting to see where this will all lead - we already have a community of adventure game fans within Kickstarter itself helping. The community is extremely humbling, to be honest. I think it's something we've always wanted to do as a company and Kickstarter is a great way to not only fund it, but to directly connect with the people who will be funding and playing the game itself.

I think I hated Phil Fish when his game was broken and glitchy and I couldn't really complete it.

Then he moaned about Microsoft's patching process.

But then! He appeared on Indie Game the Movie and turned out to be not such a bad chap.

This pro-trolling is a masterstroke. He'll be remembered as the KUBRICK OF VIDEOGAME. (Capitalised for effect).

Keep pissing off those nerds, Phil! HAHHAAHAHA

Cheers for plugging our Kickstarter - I was about to do some professional whorin'

I didn't name the project. If I did, I would have called it The Sadness of Infinity.

It is exciting though - our first bonafide Kickstarter project. We've been working internally on Realm (sorry again) for some time now, so it's good that we've finally got things out there. Richard Jacques did an amazing job with the soundtrack for the trailer - we were surprised by him when he secretly used his orchestral time to give the trailer soundtrack more of a sheen.

Any help from you fine fellow GB duders would be very much appreciated - we really want to make this game something special.

Oh god. Animal Crossing. Yes please!

I love the Nintendo Directs - they give more of a human face to Nintendo as a company. They're not full of any particular PR bullshit spin - just an honest look at what's to come from them. I appreciate that.
