    thanks Chanser, I hadn't seen that, and I'd missed the trailer during the conference (buffering FTL) !

    that game is going to be amazing!
    I love the graphics style. The last zelda didn't look too good, the GCN zelda wind waker looked awesome but childish, now this is a mix-- best of both world! I'm really really happy with that, I can't wait to play the game. I'm buying a wii [​IMG]

    You should see the E3 conference demo, it was awful it had wireless interference. Same goes to Epic Mickey that had the same thing. But yeah it looks good and the game will be out next year apparently.

    I really think they should have just used TP gfx with a slight upgrade

    not just go in between ww and tp, looks very ugly

    In your code...
    nonsense, it looks good, problem for me personally is that zelda is not supposed to look so realistic as TP did.

    ruins the feeling of old skool zelda for me.

    but man, this looks so good now, glad they mixed it, im so gonna love this one [​IMG]

    Excited? Indeed!
    I agree with Damian, TP was a bit strange compared to the other Zeldas. Brilliant game though.
    From the looks of it this is using motion plus am i correct?

    In your code...
    yes, this relies on motion plus indeed.

    wont be playable without it me thinks, and yeah, although it was to realistic for me,

    Twilight Princess kicked ass nonetheless [​IMG]

    Too bad there was that wireless interference at the 3, otherwse we would've been able to see what the gameplay is really like... Still, the game looks really cool, it's a good idea of Nintendo to let you be able to use the WiiMote as your sword, bow, etc. I hope all Zelda Wii games will be like this from now on.

    If they had used the TP graphics apparently it would be done by now , but I have to say that this grqphic style is SO much better in my opinion. I liked the WindWaker style too as there both not too realistic and ,for me , that makes it a better game.

    I was hoping for it to feel diffferent from the toerh Zeldas, but more of the same isnt a bad thing in this series [​IMG]

    Very glad they chose this graphics style instead of the TP one, I like this a lot more.
    This game is going to rock, fantastic trailer they made, they really got me hyped.

    Can't wait!

    It looks good so far, I like how they are trying for more Ocarina and LTTP graphics. That's what made it fun, there is a cartoon aspect in the old versions.

    Anyone else pissed that he is right-handed again? They had all the time they need to get the controls to match the movements... and they still F*** it up.


    DAMN YOU RIGHTYS!!! ALWAYS RUINING EVERYTHING!


    Edit:


    Additional note.... if he is right-handed now, why does he still have a left-handed pull on both bow and sling-shot?

    I agree that it would be inconsiderate. I'm not heartless... but where has the love been in all the other Wii titles? Only ones that I can think of with a left/right control shift is the sports games. I played through Dragon's Quest Swords switch-handed as well as Soul Calibur and No More Heroes as well as a myriad of other games.

    So yeah, do not give me crap about right and left control schemes. Never been fair... nor will it be. My complaint is that Link has ALWAYS been left-handed. In fact, ask the creator... he has said in numerous interviews that he was left-handed on purpose.


    This is a serious rant I know.... but it really bugs me. Also the edit I made to my first post... right-handed with a left pull? WTF!

    i think the environment of the demo, all these mushrooms and stuff, and the bokoblins look a bit too childish … i think they should adjust it a bit to links age in the game. ^^ and maybe drain the colours a bit, but that's not that important
