    The original Wind Waker bundle for the Gamecube was a far more attractive proposition.

    It was only £130 and Zelda was still somewhere near state of the art back then so you had art and animation that got people's attention. Not forgetting the bonus disc which had more Zelda games on it, including the Master Quest variant of Ocarina of Time that had never been released outside Japan.

    That was a bundle that had me running out to buy it day one, this on the other hand. Meh.

    I don't own it because I suck at the demo. I suck so much it's beyond the comprehension of mere mortals. I don't purchase games that I know I suck at and will get stuck on. Fantastic game though. It's still enjoyable if you're terrible, as even a well timed block or capturing and enemy into your team can be satisfying, but I can barely finish the demo so it's enough for me.

    That said, once I run out of goes I might be tempted into buying it because I do enjoy playing it. I'll be sticking it on the easiest setting though.
    For what it's worth, it's impossible to not complete this game. You won't get stuck on any of the bosses, like you can in DMC. You just keep pressing continue.

    I was glad of the continues in W101 on Saturday, got on one level where I just could not figure out how to beat it, I think I must have used 9 or 10 continues. It stops counting after 5, I think it's so you don't feel bad.

    I didn't realise this! That's an excellent piece of information that I've not known until now. Will definitely pick it up now, once I'm done with the games I'm currently playing. I imagine it'll hurt your score, but I don't care about that for my first run.

    Thanks for letting me know :)

    I think that's the case on Normal or lower. Higher difficulties may limit continues, I'm not sure.

    If its anything like other platinum games, you can continue as many times as you like, but it murders your score and since platinum games are, basically, score attack games, you dont want that.

    I know that, in the long run, I'll have to gain some competency when playing it, but when playing it at first, I don't like to be punished by having some enemy I'm not good enough to beat. That was really my only concern stopping me buying W101 - that I'd get stuck and end up never seeing all the levels once, which would also kill any inclination to replay.

    But now I know I can suck all I want at first! Sure, one day I'll really have to get better, but I just want to have fun experimenting. I love playing the demo because it's a fun game, but I just found there were issues with my brain and hands being terrible at making positive things happen in game.

    Edit: I really shouldn't be buying more games right now, as tempting as it is. I will get it when I can though.

    @Raiko101 Not at all. I havn't seen any sort of advertisment. The amazon page doesn't even have an image for the product!

    Here's hoping they haven't actually forgotten to market them at some point. There are rumours of a NSMBU + NSLU bundle on the horizon, and apparently Wii U sales are on a slow incline at the moment.

    To be fair, they'd be hard pushed not to enjoy a slow incline. People would pretty much have to start returning them to shops.

    Are those bundles even out yet? I wouldn't expect many people to bother pre-ordering them at this time, they're hardly going to fly out the door (no Mario kart or price drop, obviously). The best they can hope for is a reasonable couple of weeks sales, I reckon.

    Seriously do not understand what they are playing at... the only genuine mass system sellers they have are Mario Kart and Smash Bros, the two games which appeal to a huge audience. After that, maybe the new 3D Mario could be a success (though I think a SM64 / Galaxy style would be more popular). As much as I absolutely love Zelda, and I personally can't wait for this WW HD, it is not going to appeal to the masses.

    I still can't believe they haven't yet lined up a 3D Mario bundle, and I'm still in amazement that they didn't get Mario Kart (and a subsequent bundle) ready for Christmas. At the right price, that actually could have flown of the shelves this Xmas, as much as we like to mock.

    “For many Zelda fans, this is the first time that they’ll discover Wind Waker and we’re treating the game as a triple-A new release.”
    "...because we have no other AAA releases on the slate. Sorry."

    I do believe given the option they would release Kart for xmas, but software development is complicated.

    Should just release it in its current state then release the rest of the tracks later as DLC :)

    I'm sure the Xbox One is going to launch with Shadow Complex 2 and the promise of Halo: Combat Evolved in 12 months as AAA system sellers too. Amazing the quality when Nintendo puts its full weight behind supporting a new console.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    If I may ask a serious question, what would it take for you to purchase a Wii U, nick? I know we've discussed many reasons people aren't buying them, but I'm asking you personally as I'm curious. Or is there zero chance of anything taking you interest enough?

    They are cheaper and have more games, therefore = better value. Rocket Science isn't my strong point but it seems straight forward enough.

    Games, basically. I dont really want to buy into the 'its your second console' thing anymore. I only want one console and that will be the one with the most games i want to play.

    That said...... I will probably pick it up next christmas or beyond when its bundled with Mario Kart and a decent portion of all the games it will ever have have been released.

    As ridiculous as I find nintendo, it is hard to imagine that I really, truly will skip a generation for the first time in 25 years*.

    Sorry, the pedometer was a poor joke. They are much better value.
