    Wind Waker is a game I use to judge other people's taste in games. If someone tells me WW sucked, I know right away they are a complete fucking idiot with no clue what they are talking about. If this isn't in your top 10 (Maybe even top 3-5) games ever made, then you don't know shit about games. The original was a masterpiece. The fact that they could improve on it in any way is somewhat frightening. This will make me buy a Wii U someday, but right now, the bundle price is just too high for an already-dead console.

    yooou are one hell of a douchebag. My favorite games include persona 4, Chrono trigger, Donkey kong country, Final fantasy 8, Link to the past, among many others. There are too many amazing games in the world for you to jump up and say "oh dear, he's a fucking idiot because he doesn't like so and so game as much as other games". I think windwaker is one of the best zeldas. But i will not be putting it in my top ten when i have so many wonderful memories in there. Ugh people....

    Reasons why I want a Wii U.

    You really don't though... Specially if you've already played the first one :P If nothing else, just wait till the Wii U inevitably plummets in price in a year or two and get it for dirt cheap :P

    It's not like I'm actually going to run out and buy one today. It's just that I love The Wind Waker, so this is rather tempting. Still, working at Best Buy means I should be able to set one aside if we're going to have a nice holiday sale for them. Otherwise, I may have to wait for a price drop in the near future. I've been neglecting my Warhammer anyway, so waiting it out may be for the best.

    I'm so torn between getting to play 2 weeks early and owning a physical copy. Anyone have thoughts?
  • db1331 - September 18, 2013 10:11 a.m.

    I don't understand the love of physical copies. I love being able to play anything in my library without having to find the disc and put it in. I'm sure it just comes from years of gaming with Steam. Most times when I go to play my PS3 I just pick a game that's either installed on my HDD, or just play whatever disc is in there at the time, just because I don't feel like getting a disc out.

    I'm that way with my PS3 too, but some things you just want to own physical. Probably because I have the other Zeldas physical. For me, I guess it comes down to if I expect it to be timeless or not. That said, despite my love of Pokemon, I'll be buying it digital so that I always have it. Just seems sensible. But I kinda want my Zelda physical I guess.

    Convenience is great. I have a huge steam library, but I'm also a collector and it pains me not to have boxes.
  • BladedFalcon - September 18, 2013 8:52 a.m.

    I still maintain that this is the one Zelda game that didn't need a remake, but hey, if they did a good job of it and made it even better... Hell, why complain?
  • TokenGamesRadarFurry - September 18, 2013 8:52 a.m.

    Wow...looks like I have something to play on my WiiU besides Pikmin now :D

    The wonderful 101, and Rayman Legends are also good games you could check. And if you can give chance and patience to a hardcore game Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams is a very challenging and cheap platformer.
