YOYOYO! Nintendo Direct Mini Released! Bunch O’ Ports!

Good evening friends!

Well, that was a surprise, wasn’t it? I’m was just about to sit down with a nice, refreshingly brewed cup of Durennmork blend coffee – as black as midnight on a moonless night – perhaps enjoy a little light reading, when I suddenly get a call from Adrian. There goes my peaceful brooding time. Of course, the news that Adrian has to share is really, nothing that important. Trivial, in the overall scheme of things, but I guess when you run a pop culture magazine and website, every bit of relatively insignificant news is important. Ha ha.

In the past, it was just the print magazine – there was really no rush to report on something immediately, as long as it was covered by the time the issue had to be published. With our newly gained online presence, it’s a little different. Everything needs to be reported on and posted as soon as possible, lest you become redundant, “old news” (And then we can’t attract the HITS man! THE HITS!!).

And so, dear reader, I come back to the topic at hand. The newly released Nintendo Direct mini. Instead of making a post for each and every game, update or port announced, I’m including a timestamp breakdown, listing each announcement. I feel there is little else that I can add, which will significantly improve your experience…
