    Release Date 11/20 (For those who don't know or care)

    Nintendo finally decides to release the next title in the Zelda line of video games and it looks glorious so far.
    In a nutshell, it chronologically takes place in the imaginary "timeline" and is supposed to be a big deal since it deals with the inception of Hyrule, the Master Sword, the Shiekah, and tie up a bunch of things from other titles like Twilight Princess and Link's Awakening while being a great game all on it's own.

    Some new shit to get excited about are the fully intuitive motion controls, crafting system, and some meta-shit like orchestrated soundtrack and art-style. So anybody interested?

    Another Rehash, yes. But Nintendo has made rehashings into in art. How else do they trick people in buying the same game twice every time a new one comes out(im lookin' at you pokemon)

    Pokemon is a rehasher's wet dream. At least the Legend of Zelda has evolved over time. It's been different Links, new characters, settings, etc. Mario on the other hand is a rehash, since the only character development that seems to happen ever is Bowser dying in repeatedly ridiculous ways.

    Nintendo doesn't fuck around when a new Legend of Zelda comes out, that's for sure. They haven't made a bad one ever. Mostly because they use the same ideas that made the last one's successful, though lazy as fuck as it is.

    In Japan it's the norm to re-release a re-release(I'm looking at you street fighter) but here in the west we like our games to be perfect the first time we buy it, and expand it with DLC. Not buy the same thing on different system just because it has different items. Ocarina of time was good, but when the fuck are you gonna stop selling the whole, Ganondorf kidnaps Zelda, Link saves Zelda junk.

    Last birthday I had the choice of a system (new ds or a wii), even though I knew skyward sword would be coming out this year. I chose a 3DS.

    biggest mistake ever. Bought it before the price drop, too.

    I love Zelda games to death, but this game looks really half assed to be honest (most wii games do)

    looks more like a Spin-off game. And it's sad that this is an actuall new game along the lines of OOT/MM. And so far it looks like motion controlls play a major role in this game. Fuck that. I got Twilight Princess on Gamecube so I wouldnt have to deal with that shit.

    And the art style looks retarded. Looks like they ran out of ideas and didnt want to spend time making them look good, so they just mixed Twilight Princess with Wind waker and took the easy way out. so yeah , fuck this game. Maybe when the Wii U comes around they will put out something better.

    It's just that in this kind of games you can't change the gameplay too much without killing the essence, so they have to rely on other elements like storytelling and character design.

    What I find attractive of Pokemon the most is how they have crafted their own universe with their own myths, legends, religions, language, etc. If you bother to read all the stories that come inside the game (that sadly no one bothers to read, like the Library in Generation IV) you will end up spending a couple of hours.

    Yes, you are playing the same game for the fifth time and you know what to expect. But it's a whole new experience at the same time.

    And if everything fails, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.
