Nintendo Wii U

    What a ridiculous comparison! Wii games are 480p and look nothing like this on your TV, whereas Wii U games run at 720/1080p! Comparing TP with Pickmin is stupid why not Pikmin Wii U with Pikmin on Wii, with original resolution? This is trolling at its best!

    Or why not compare the Zelda tech demo, to Twilight Princess? That a far more accurate comparison in graphics. Granted, its a tech demo but it was running in real time showcasing the power of the Wii U!

    Pikmin 3 is going to be the console for me, just like Twilight Princess was. I played Twilight Princess for 150 hours and Pikmin 1 + 2 over 100 hours. First and second tier Nintendo games are the fucking bomb.

    Just being better than the wii doesnt really mean much to me. Now being better than the gamecube or 3ds...

    He's comparing the launch titles if you didnt figure that out, but pretty much its too obvious its better than the Wii. In terms of launch, it already beats GC and train wreck that was the 3DS launch

    Why does it do this? I do not want it to do this. my favourite line Interesting Hooters, I think I agree with this but still doubt the WiiU selling the same way the wii did to casual gamers. Plus I think hardcore gamers will be more cautious this time round.

    Well-spoken as ever, Dave. It really seems like the WiiU is winning this round. p.s.: I wish I had a memory as sturdy as yours.

    I'd have to disagree with your thoughts on Twilight Princess's story. Tonally it's all over the place and the mature themes felt forced into a series which contary to some people's believes has never really been "mature"
  • shawksta - June 21, 2012 1:56 p.m.

    Define Mature, technically Speaking in terms of games, Mature is simply just a rating that any game can slap if it has gore, violence and language. Somethinft actually being Mature is something you have to take to account, like how Dark a story is and how well developed it is, including the style on some circumstances. An example is Super Paper Mario, Kid friendly colorful style, Dark and Mature story depth.

    Just some people seeming to think that all Zelda games prior to Wind Waker had deep ultra serious stories when they didn't really it was always really more a series about a child like sense of discovery

    ”could-have-been-lifted-from-Viewtiful-Joe presentation.” Well duh, Platinum games tecnically is a reborn Clover Studios with new guns. Nice to see a call back style to Joe. I, never seemed to experience the Multiplayer wrechedness on NSMBW, I played with my bro, who is a gamer aswell and not a casual idiot so we botb enjoyed the game very much. Playing Single Player isnt that big when your used to it too. Either way nice analysis Dave. (inb4 Talking behind Bretts back about your opinion on WW XD))

    Now if only it launches at the right price then it will attract both the hardcore and casual crowd.

    Big Shocker that the Wii-U games look to be better than the wii.
  • TheFabricOfTime - June 21, 2012 6 a.m.

    I didn't like New Super Mario Bros Wii that much either. 2 player Mario is good, but 4 player Mario is just stupid.
  • db1331 - June 21, 2012 5:19 a.m.

    Your logic is confusing me. You couldn't get through Wind Waker, but you love Okami. Both games follow the same formula. Hell, they even look really similar.
  • ShortFuse - June 21, 2012 7:39 a.m.

    I've never fully understood Dave's stance on why he particularly likes Twilight Princess out of the newer Zelda games. Would quite like him to explain why as I personally find it, with the power of hindsight, inferior to Wind Waker. Obviously when I'm playing a new Zelda at the time I love it, but then it takes me a couple of weeks after completing it to work out where it ranks on the scale.
  • db1331 - June 21, 2012 7:52 a.m.

    Here's how I look at ranking the Zelda games: If you tell me that you think either Ocarina, Wind Waker, or Twilight Princess is the best Zelda game, I won't argue with you. If you tell me A Link to the Past or Majora's Mask is the best Zelda game, I will respectfully disagree, and engage in a friendly debate on the subject. If you think any other game in the series is the best, you are flat out wrong and I will berate you for it. I see what you mean about the power of hindsight. In another 10 years TP will be extremely dated, while WW will still be a masterpiece.

    I'd say that's the case even now. I played Twilight Princess the other week and it didn't hold up nearly as well as I remember it being at the time. Wind Waker on the other hand is still really good presentation wise. See each to their own, but my favorites are probably (in order from top to bottom and only including ones I've played) Majora's Mask Wind Waker Ocarina of Time Link's Awakening Phantom Hourglass Twilight Princess Link to the Past Minish Cap Still haven't played Skyward Sword yet though, so can't pass judgement on that. I think I have a similar stance on Link To The Past as you but would say TP replaces Majora's Mask as the other because I would argue MM is as classic and essential as OoT, though I admit it has what some people may perceive as flaws. Link's Awakening is an odd favorite for me, but this is more nostalgia reasons than anything else...It's pretty basic now but it was my first Zelda game! I tend to prefer the games that aren't based necessarily in Hyrule but there is a distant connection to it. I.e the parallels in Majora's Mask and the underwater Hyrule in Wind Waker.

    I would pass on SS honestly. I forgot it even existed until you mentioned it, but it still falls into my third category. The controls could be wonky at times, but Fi was the most annoying character ever created. That, and the game treated you like you were 6 years old the entire time.
