I've actually got dibs on 'em all, sorry. Look it up. It's true life law and everything.

You can have your 'attractive' ladies, I'll take the MILF with all that junk inside her trunk.

So here's the new trailer if you haven't seen it already:

I think it's looking better, but I'm still worried about the controls. It looks like TP on Wii controls, just more with more angles. I'm sure it'll still be a fun game, but waggle creeping into the game concerns me.

Please tell me it's not going to have that giant controller display taking up an entire 1/4 of the screen or that we can have the option to turn it off. That looks really ridiculous.

You know, as curious and interested as I am in this one (and I usually am when it comes to new Zelda games), that was a surprisingly unexciting trailer. I gather it's for a tech show and all, but other than a few tiny tidbits, it seems mostly like they're still trying to sell the gimmick, instead of the game itself.

Aside from that though, the game looks really good visually and sound-wise. I'm also very curious to know more about the dude sitting on the statue.

^ I pretty much said the same thing. I don't get why Nintendo is so intent on shoving motion controls down gamers' throats. Hardcore gamers grew up on controllers with D-pads (or a joystick) and button(s). If the motion controls aren't perfect, which they well could be, there's basically no reason to force gamers to use them. I'll withhold my final call until I play the game for myself, but I'm skeptical at this point.

In all fairness, I was skeptical of Wind Waker, and while it's far from my favorite, it was still a great game.

That Stalfos(?) looks insane.

Most people don't seem to realize that Nintendo isn't trying to widen the chasm between the "casual" and the "hardcore", it's trying to shorten it. Hence, a Zelda game that's easier to control. It's not a bad thing.
I'm just wishing this game isn't like Phantom Hourglass, where the game was laughably easy, I'm hoping it's more like Spirit Tracks, where it's potential is put to good use.


But I'm optimistic. Three words: Four Armed Stalfos

What I'm hoping for:

High difficulty, at least higher than TP
Orchestral soundtrack
Less fan-service to Ocarina fans, more experimentation and developer freedom
A good feel. That good ol' magic "lost in Hyrule" feeling

I like motion plus and the graphics. That's all I know about the game. Lookin' good. Will pre-order.

Today I realized how shitty I feel for never beating OoT or MM. I'm actually more tempted to play MM. Would you guys recommend it or are the people who say it's just "boring and weird" right?

EDIT: Oh, has anyone played Master Quest? OoT was already kind of difficult to me but I love a challenge.

If you're inclined for MM, complete MM. You're probably not in the "boring and weird" crowd. One of the things I love about MM is that it stretches Zelda conventions pretty far back

As for Master Quest... Worth a play if you're familiarised with OoT dungeons. The MQ dungeons do get a bit insane. But go for OoT first, if you haven't completed it.
