    So why was the Wii version better?
    Widescreen, Pointer aiming.
    Was GC Zelda really not widescreen? Ha, did not know that.

    Honestly.

    Wii version had 4 item slots compared to two as well.
    There are some pros and cons for each version tbd, saying one is clearly better than the other is a bit disingenuous.

    TP was the game that really made me hate waggle as well. It didn't help that it was poorly implemented on an average Zelda game with nothing new to offer, just as the average Zelda game with nothing new to offer wasn't helped by having waggle.

    Wind Waker is the right Zelda game to bring back, if they have to bring back a Zelda game. Of course what they should do is make a new one (rather than waiting and seeing how WW does).

    I'm sure they are beavering away on it and can understand them not wanting to distract from WW till it's out.

    I can't understand why it's taking them so long to get WW:HD out.

    I think, by now, its pretty well established that this is the normal length of time it takes them get a game out.

    Possibly because no-one at Nintendo appears to understand their own hardware, which is odd given that it is a Gamecube Super Turbo DX.

    Bit different when the meat of the game was created and polished years ago, just a case of transferring it to an entirely new engine.

    Bot easy, but still.

    Unless they're redoing everything?

    From what I can gather Nintendo has six people working on Wii U games. 7 if you count the guy who does saturday mornings.

    This lunchtime I just watched back all the E3 vids through the WiiU eshop, in smooth HD rather than the shite, jerky stream of yesterday. I have to say it has cheered my up a lot. Doesn't completely make up for the glaring omissions and delays, but I'm genuinely looking forward to a number of those games shown now that a) I've calmed down b) seen them in decent quality.

    The whole conference could have just been a 30 minute gif of mario dancing a jig and people would have still talked themself into thinking it was good. "Yes it was only a crudely animated gif of mario dancing a jig, but it was in widescreen, and they didn't want to show other games as it would detract from the jig that mario was dancing. Lets just see what happens next year, the jig was almost 30 minutes long so they obviously know what they're doing with it. Plus it had some news moves in it, the double foot stamp twirl he done at the end was innovative to say the least. In fact the more I think about the more this PROVES THAT THE MAGIC HAS RETURNED. LONG LIVE NINTENDO!!!"

    To be fair, we'd have got roughly the same amount of information ;)

    I didn't know Wind Waker had a load of content cut. That is the sort of thing that should be making it into a remake.

    Are Retro really working on DK? Really disappointing.

    Dunno, that DK game reminded me mostly of DK Jungle Beat which is almost certainly my favourite DK game ever. I don't mind if Retro are working on that, because it's probaby the game I'm most hyped about after that Direct.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Is there a release date for Mario Dancing GIF yet?

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    I have the Gamecube Mario dance mat. Aside from it being made of greased teflon and the songs being basically undanceable it was ... still rubbish.

    I'm actually pleased Retro's game is another Donkey Kong. I love those games. Far better then the 2D Mario's these days and actually hard as shit at times. Looking forward to that.
  • Deleted user 12 June 2013 17:39:07
    Aye, same i love the DK series. Really looking forward to it.

    It's certainly not unwelcome (especially with David Wise being back on board as the composer) and looked really good in the trailer. People are just underwhelmed because they were hoping for something a little more groundbreaking from Retro - feels like their talents would have been better used to resurrect another franchise, or even create something new.

    I personally find games like that to be garnish as opposed to a main course, if you know what I mean. It's the sort of thing that would be a well loved XBLA game on the 360, as opposed to a full on major AAA release.

    I thought we had progressed from thinking that only 3d games are proper games worthy of retail price.

    Have any other Wii U owners been looking at their console under the tv and started hearing Simon and Garfunkle singing "hello darkness my old friend..." or is it just me?

    Can't believe so many Wii U's are gathering dust when Monster Hunter & Lego City are available.

    I agree and disagree, kinda.  New Super Mario Bros Wii U is the best 2d Mario since super Mario world, it's just stunning.  Taking nothing away from the quality of DKC tho as I'm currently working my way through the 3ds version and it's also fantastic.

    If you like 2d platformers then you are in heaven, and why wouldn't you, they are gaming distilled into fine little potions of wonder.  Nothing else comes close, not Rayman or any of the other pretenders.

    The new Super Mario feels fresh as anything and it really shouldn't.  Had I known just how good it was I would probably have bought a Wii U sooner.

    Was playing Metro Last Light tonight on the pc and it's a smashing game, well worth playing.  Make me choose between that and SMBWU and I will take the little plumber thanks very much.

    It's just too much damn fun.  Reminds me why I love games whereas Metro mostly reminds me why I need to buy a new GPU :)
