I'm very excited about this game. The graphics look awesome and all of the hands-on impressions I've read say that the controls are amazing. I read an interview stating that after what Nintendo did with full orchestra music in the Mario Galaxy games, they couldn't very well pass on doing the same for Zelda, so hopefully we'll finally get some real live orchestra in a Zelda game.

Looks awesome, but I gotta say I'm a bit disappointed that Link is likely to be right handed in all future iterations.

Won't that mean the music can no longer change on the fly to match the action? I kind of like that.

The real question is, will they introduce someone just as cool/cooler than Midna?

Maybe this time around they will offer the option to pick a handedness when you start a new game file? I believe they said they couldn't do it for Twilight Princess without mirroring the entire game, but maybe they learned their lesson from that?

I like the way they mixed up Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker graphics. Hope to see more from this game soon.

Agreed, lefty Link ftw, especially as a lefty myself.

The game itself makes me very interested, especially with the (hopefully) 1:1 controls. Although, I could definitely do with a difficulty increase....

However, I'm really iffy on the orchestral music. I have found that orchestral music doesn't fit well with video games to me. While there were a couple of songs I liked of Super Mario Galaxy, most of them are completely forgettable (I can't recall a single song, and I just beat the game for the second time 100% again a month ago) and somewhat bland/boring - too "atmospheric" and made to be background music just to have something other than silence. I always liked the melodies that video game music offered - stuff that got stuck in your head, that you could hum/whistle/bob your head to and really get into, and with this shift to orchestral music, it seems like the majority of songs have put that all away and all the games that do this type of music are very similar sounding, boring pieces of music that just fill the silence (no good original melodies, no good "groove"). Of course, this doesn't mean orchestral music can't be interesting, but I haven't played a game yet (or at least one I can remember off the top of my head) that has orchestral music that is interesting for more than a couple songs. Maybe I haven't played the right game though.

*drool* It sucks that I don't yet have a Wii. This has the potential to top TP as my favorite Zelda game.

Are you kidding?? I can't get those Galaxy songs out of my head!

I personally couldn't be more excited for orchestral music!
And yes, Nintendo can make even orchestral music change on the fly. Dive underwater in Mario Galaxy or hit Bowser's weak spot (for massive damage) to see what I mean.
