Is this the promised W101 Direct? If Nintendo don't do that then Kamiya is gon' be understandably peeved..! Don't upset Kamiya-sama please.

It's not. It's a Global Direct with some news about titles coming this year. TW101 Direct is still on it's way I believe.

If this isn't the W101 direct, are there any murmurs as to what it could be?

Presumably, release dates on most of the games slated for this year. Maybe a number of smaller titles as well.

And maybe (big maybe) a new Smash Bros character reveal since Sakurai decided all the newcomers will receive their own trailers/videos.

Obligatory Hype Train comment:

I wonder what they're going to show us?

 

I'm hoping for some specific release dates (rather than "sometime in the month of X") and maybe some prices; some details on the Wii U Used-to-be-Summer Update and the 3DS Miiverse would be nice too.

TW101 Direct is still on it's way I believe.

It better be.

 

I don't mind this NDirect not focusing on 101 so long as the 101 focus hits hard soon, but after hearing that Platinum had to ask Nintendo if they could make a blog to promote the game (because Nintendo weren't doing enough to promote it) I'm worried.

"We are cancelling The Wonderful 101 in favour of something more financially sound: New Super Mario Bros 3"

No but seriously, I'm cautiously excited.  I want to see what they have in store, but I'm prepared for it to be nothing to be excited about at the same time. Let's see what they have in store.

"New details on previously announced games"

 

Just to prevent hopes from reaching too high.

Hopefully we get some of dat Yarn Yoshi, and a new character reveal for Smash. Also maybe another SLW trailer, some release dates for the Zelda games, and maybe more 3D World? I actually don't know what to expect this time really.

I think Nintendo should be smart and announce a slight price drop (250$ for the deluxe bundle with Mario U, Pikmin 3, or Lego City) so that way they can get a head start over Microsoft/Sony and start selling systems. 

 

Outside of that unrealistic suggestion, I think they will announce a new character for Smash U/3ds (a new character, as they already announced Olimar is back from Brawl), show off more of 3d World, DKC: TF, and Lost World, announced release dates for there fall line up, and announce something for Mario Kart 8 (either a online enabled demo with 5 tracks and 12 characters or show off a new track or something). 

 

I'm thinking they are going to have a huge direct before September (after this one) to home in to the Nintendo audience that system is a good value with announce some new games (maybe potentially another project from Retro Studios and a teaser for the 3rd exclusive Sonic) and adding a account system (a must with the system being able to go full digital).

Limbo's style is done well, it's intentionally minimalistic and black and white to create fear and mystery like a well-made noire film (some noire films are bad bc you can't tell what's going on due to clumsy lighting for the sake of fulfilling a "style").

 

Most modern games with a dull style are "trying" (and failing) "to be realistic".

Alright, then a different example.

 

This game is very, very pretty -

This game is also very, very pretty -

This particular screenshot is not. At all. Rest of the game not so much either, in my opinion -

Case in point - I don't think colors make or break anything. There's a lot more to visuals than that. Detail, tone, context, atmosphere, character design, and the list goes on. Xenoblade is gorgeous; as is Mario Galaxy, Wind Waker, and the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games. X is also gorgeous; alongside MGS4, Sleeping Dogs, and Tomb Raider.

 

Color is one factor out of many.
