I really want that Mario Clock...that is awesome.

famicomplicatedJames Charlton, Associate Editor (Japan)June 03, 2012

That's Reggie's wristwatch. True story.

Time to set my alarm for tomorrow morning, Nintendo direct is at 7am, right before work! Gonna be cutting it close.

I love catching these Nintendo Directs, roundtables, announcements etc. I don't love them enough to stay up to 2am in the morning though.

All of those times should say PDT/EDT.

The 'S' in PST/EST means Standard time, which is only used in the winter, except for areas that don't observe daylight saving time (e.g. Arizona).

If this is too much to remember, just use two letters: PT, ET.

While I appreciate the sentiment behind the creation of these time tables, I live in Chicago where we use Central Time. I still have to look at these and figure out what time events will take place in my time zone for myself.

ThomasOJune 03, 2012

If the Software Software is at 6PM PST time, shouldn't it be 9PM EST?

SarailJune 03, 2012

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a typo. Should be 9pm est.

ToraJune 03, 2012

Wait, it's a quarter to Mario 64! I had to use that one.

So, will all these be streamable live? If so, where?

Here! (and on Nintendo's various sites)

You guys must really hate Central Standard Time.

Meh, just take the EDT and subtract 1 hour. Don't most TV shows list their times using EDT/PDT only anyways?

gbuellGrant Buell, Staff WriterJune 05, 2012

Yeah, that's the standard. I live in CST and don't get my panties in a bunch.
