Nintendo won’t let up on The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD trailers it seems, as they just released another one today.
After spending 2 years looking for Wind Waker GC, I found it at Gamestop last summer( their last copy), got to the 4th dungeon and they announced this version. Haven't played since because I want to finish the journey in HD. This is such a beautiful game in almost every way imaginable. One of the best Soundtracks and Art Styles ever created, and those both go a long way for making a game memorable.
"But it's a GC port and a scam!" I was gonna say, they took one of the best looking games of generation six and made it look even better and applied new gameplay and social mechanics to it. It begs the question how anyone can call this a port and not a genuine remake. Last time I checked the GCN game didn't have a first person combat mode, Hero Mode out of the box or visuals this good looking.
Of course, you've gotta remember that if the "other brands" do it with just upscaling and without adding zilch, its fine. Only Nintendo isn't allowed to do it and let alone add a few nifty things too. the "gamer" double standard.
There is a double standard yes. Nobody complained about Halo Combat Evolved being remade, and the multiplayer was just recycled from Halo Reach. Sony HD collections are a collection of games per disc, but those are only resolution upscales with trophy support. Not trying to say any of those are bad, but if those are good deals then how is this a scam? I can only acknowledge some peoples' complaints about it being sold for more than $40. Beyond that, I don't know what to say.
People with common sense knows that this isn't a scam, and at $50, it's a good deal considering the extra effort Nintendo put behind it. I love the PS3 HD collections. Enjoyed the God of War ones pretty much, and I recently played Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta on 3D, it's awesome. And there just add the HD, 3D, and trophies. If I was able to enjoy these, I will definitely be able to enjoy Wind Waker with its reworked graphics, and new gamepad features, and all that. Haters gonna hate.
@3-4-5 I would have let you buy mine if the price was right. Offer enough and I'll chuck in Rogue Squadron, Monkey Ball, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Sunshine/Double Dash, Wave Race, etc.
