DefaultPrime.com: "3D Game Dot Heroes is already getting attacked for it's similarity to that of the Legend of Zelda series, and if you check out the new video, you can see where the game's influence from Legend of Zelda is taken up 110%."
I'm Buyin it!! XD
Definitely. If Nintendo can't give us the Zelda we want, I'm glad someone else is doing so, especially on the PS3 so we don't have to suffer with crappy Wii graphics. This game looks amazing.
That's the kind of originality GameTrailers loves to see! This game is a 10/10! lol
Sony has never been original with their exclusive titles, they can only copy others.
Hell, if it's 110% like the greatest game on th snes then i'm in!!!
i never could understand comments like yours if zelda is what you truly wanted then you wouldn't settle for anything but zelda and not something that resembles it? also if this game resembles zelda 110% then why would you think this game is a zelda experience nintendo isn't delivering? can someone explain it to me? i see allot of comments like that and it just leaves me guessing
Okay for you i'll put in your speed. 1. Zelda is a 2D dungeon crawler game we all like. 2. If this is like that plus 10%, then we're game. 3. plus much more (create your character omfg win) 4. It's all about the new perspective on a classic formula that works. Which why if not done by nintendo, we're glad to see it done by others. 5. It's done by a company already known to make a great game for the ps3 (demon souls.)
yet Dante's Inferno slips by virtually unnoticed for its blatant replication
idont understand do you people think this game is a normal rpg? i thought this is like LBP but for RPG, you can build your one games and they did its first "lvl" with zelda. isnt that the point of it? its a do it yourself rpg. i thought.
i really don't have a problem with games resembling others. i don't care if dantes inferno looks almost too similar to GOW, they both look like great games and will (hopefully) offer a unique experience on both sides. same thing for gears of war and quantum (although quantum looks like sh!t and i didn't care for gears.) i don't see anything wrong with being similar to another game. HOWEVER, i do think it's horrible when someone blatantly rips off an idea and run with it as if it was their own original work. i'm pretty sure from software isn't going to deny the similarities between this and LoZ. the only thing i would wish for the game is to be not so similar to LoZ. i'd prefer a unique experience and not something similar to an already popular series and story. and fix the shadows and lighting. something about it bugs the hell out of me.
I want a pokemon (And not that stupid camera game), zelda, and Yoshi's Island ripoff for the PSP.
WOW! Looks better than I would ever expect!
buh buh you're supposed to hate it, not want it even more...buh... /end sarcasm
I like how the rabbits blow up into little blocks.
One of the music was a parody of Dragon Quest, and the default names for your characters are (written in Katakana parodying the same sounds): From (From Software), Ansony (Sony), Segirl (spelled Sega-ru in Japanese parodying SEGA), Iren (IREM), MiKoToNa (Konami), Quenis (Square-Enix). Reading from Japanese sites supposedly they got authorization (from whom I have no idea) for being similar to Zelda, they even poke fun at themselves in the vid of the similarities. The the system of growing your sword as your health bar was similar to a flash RPG game which they also got an authorization from the author. In the vid it says you will also see many parodies toward retro games that will put a smile on your face. Things like having played retro games will give you hints in how to fight boss fights. Looks like a big parody/homage game so I wonder how much the younger generation will appreciate it if they've never played the old school games. It's by From Software who made Demon's Souls so I am pretty sure they will do a good job mixing the old w/ the new.
I'm so sick of people knocking this as a LoZ clone when they know NOTHING about the game. Yes, there are similarities to Zelda in parts of the game-it's an intentional thing meant to pay homage to the older games as it's a great link for their 2D changing to 3D gameplay(which has ZERO to do with LoZ). The character that resembles LttP Link is just one of the chars you play as and by no means all the game has to offer. As pointed out above there's clearly going to be other games/devs mentioned and parodied so picking one facet of the game and rinning with it as the most blatant rip off ever is just uinfair and inaccurate to me. There's just a hell of a lot to the game that seems top have passed this guy by in his haste to hammer it. IDK about any deals From have made to clear themselves for these "homages" but I can't see why Ninty would n't agree to them doing it as it's free press for their series and is done from the perspective of gently pokong fun at how games have changed over the last ten/fifteen years. If someone chooses to ignore what the game's really about just to pretend it's a total retread of old 2D Zelda games then they've chosen to mislead people on purpose and are selling readers short by totally misrepresenting this game. Honestly, why didn't they find out what the game was like ALL the way through and what the motives are behind the things they do take the mickey out of. Then we might have had a less spiteful and more helpful piece.
The reason I want to get this game is because it is a 3D retro Zelda clone.
PS3 does what Ninten-don't!!!!!
You say ONE part of the game looks like Zelda, but you are wrong. Spin slash, charge, way to hold shield for block, hook shot, even boomerang works very similarly to Zelda. Which means the gameplay (which consists at least 90% of a videogame aside from story and visual) mechanic is almost an exact copy. Sure it has the enormous sword upgrade system, but that's really only it so far from the videos that is surely original to this game. Yes, the game is 3D as opposed to 2D in original Zelda, but the gameplay is still locked in 2D plane like the original, so it's purely aesthetic and can't be included in gameplay. Finding similarities in King's room to the first Dragon Quest, for instance, is an homage. The conversations have parodies or references to the games from same era, that's also an homage. But if you can call those almost a clone copied gameplay an homage or a parody, you can pretty much get away with anything. Hey, even the devs themselve said they wanted to make Zelda in 3D space. I want to buy this game because it plays like Zelda game, but i can't stand people defending this game in wrong way. It's essentially a Zelda clone with 3D visual and nostalgic parodies of the classic NES and SNES games. That's what this game was designed to be, and there is nothing wrong with that.
I wish they had the regular art stlye.
Shut up. You have no idea what you are talking about. Some of the most memorable games were released on a Sony system.
who cares we already know this.. game looks great anyway.. no graphics wh*re here but ive been waiting for a real zelda HD for ages.. imagine the big open world teh cell and bluray could have provided ;_;
Too similar that it's just down right spooky. The hero even raises his arms (with a mini theme song to boot) and everything just like Link when he used to get a special item. Even the music sounds just like Zelda. There is even a fairy of sorts that talks to you! Game looks interesting though but gawd 3 Game Dot, you suck on being original.
is teh sword embedded in the big rock.
That was just the starting point. Everything else after that just got frighteningly similar.
I love Zelda, and if I can't my milk from the Cow, I'll just get it from the Goat.
They're not trying to be original. They're clearly making the game that they (and a lot of people) want Nintendo to make. It is obviously a homage to classic Zelda games.
Who decides what is a homage and what is a rip-off? Dante's Inferno is a rip-off? But this game is not? I think people are being a little biased here.
We're actually GETTING the new HD GOW game we've been waiting for. A new HD classic Zelda game? Nope.
I'm starting to think that this game is meant to be a LoZ spoof, lol. It would be great if somewhere in the game, there was a prince called Selda...lol.
Yes, but it's only ONE part of the game that's intended to spoof Zelda at all-and it's a very admiring homage in any case. Anyone expecting a pure Zelda clone from this game is going to be disappointed because LOTS of things from the 2D era will be spoofed. And LoZ did NOT invent all the stuff people are attributing to it either-the sword in the stone? Seriously, are we saying Miyamoto invented that for Link? People just need to see there's much, much more to this than copying Zelda(and a Zelda that Ninty left behind years ago, in this form, even on hand helds so jus who's toes are they stepping on?). This guys taken a vid of a tiny part of the game to support his theory and doesn't even point out that it's meant to be a gentle laugh at us when we were enjoying the old 2D games. Actually there's going to be a lot of inventive aspects to this game and making gentle fun of the 2D games we love is a great critch for the main thrust of the game changing from 2 to 3D isn't it? It's a massive overreaction , imo, and when we see the full product it will all make sense.
even the menu and HUD look straight out of the legend of zelda. if i were nintendo id seriously try to sue. the only original looking thing is the block graphics and thats not much
Wow I think some people take these things waaay too seriously. This is a parody of Zelda, meaning that the game does not take itself too seriously, unlike the Legend of Zelda series. If you don't like it, fine, but I'm excited for this game as are alot of other playstation owners.
if so then thats cool, but if its unintentional than not cool
Yes it is a parody, the game does not take itself too seriously. The main premise revolves around the King declaring that everything within his kingdom be made 3D to increase tourism
Are you serious??? :D
I love Zelda and I take this as spoofing but in a good way, I laughed when they showed the character receive something *gets sword* duh nah nah nahh *gets shield* duh nah nah nahh anyone ever play Graal, or http://www.hyruleonline.net... Are you guys upset at that game too? Lots of zelda clones, because a lot of people like it, including developers. Very interested in this, is this supposed to be more of a RPG like finding weapons and classes or adventure game like Zelda?
Graal was amazing back in the day. Better than WoW and any of the other MMO crap out these days.
I'm buying it.
i like zelda. I'd ratter save money and buy the new Zelda game coming for Wii though.
Someone's a little late to the party. This just in, NG2sigma isn't an official sequel!
Woah woah woah, ok you're calling people late in the head about this and yet you're stating something about NGSigma2 we aren't aware of? My, you're the brightest bulb aren't you? It's an official remake of the sequel though. just like the first ninja gaiden sigma.
This isn't surprising. Sony has never been original with their exclusive titles, they can only copy others. LOL Publisher: FromSoftware Developer: Silicon Studio BUT BUT BUT BUT B UT IT IS FROM SONY.
This game is a homage to the top down games of old that we loved (mainly LoZ). I for one will have a great time enjoying this game instead of trying to point out an obvious fact about the game.
I'd rather play the real thing =|
Oh Chris, that's not the point of it at all. It's a game that references all 2D top down adbentures and to miss out Zelda would be daft, no? Thi isn't a straight copy of a Zelda game(no matter how many people are sure it is)but a collection of oparodies that support the games core 2 to 3D changing concept. Looking back at the greats of that era is the best and most entertaining, way to do this. It's clever, game history referencing project the kind of thing that we don't ever really see and people are totally missing the point in their hurry to call it a copy when it just isn't why the "Zelda" bits are in there. So, go and lay a 2D Zelda(you'll enjoy it no douibt-they're cool games) but don't miss out on this because you erroneously feel it's just a clone of something else when that plainly isn't all it is. Honestly, this will reference loads of things and Zelda is just the most obvious one atm-there's going to be plenty of respect for the old games AND plenty of inventive new gameplay elements. Should be very different to most things. It really winds me up when the real game here gets ignored becase someone wanted to moan without researching what the truth actually was.
I don't think you people understand what this game is. It's like LBP...but with 3D Dots... This is just ONE scenario the creators have made. They remade Zelda...showing what they can do with it. How intelligent are you people?
Stop-motion videos are cool, but this game seems like a bland rip off. The colours aren't vivid, I don't really like the style. It's an interesting approach, however it just doesn't attract me in any way.
This is not copying zelda, its a parody of different RPGS such as final fantasy, dragon quest, and zelda.
I'd bet you're the queen of originality. What with you comments and all, they're so unique and always something new right? God the bots are so "original".
Well the ps3 is the king of ripping off other games and the droids love it Uncharted =Gears killzone=call of duty resistance=halo ratchet and clank=mario eyepet=Wii fit infamous=crackdown mgs4=splinter cell ..
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHA *GASPS FOR AIR* HAAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAA AHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA F A I L Please please please save the idiotically lame comments for PP
Guess what? All those games you mentioned on the left are better than the games mentioned on the right, except Mario, but last time I checked Mario doesn't use guns. Ratchet is therefore pure originality. And LOL at MSG4 copying Splinter Cell. Hey dumbass f4ggoty bot, which franchise came first? Case closed.
Gears = Kill.switch Call of Duty = Battlefield Halo = Tribes Mario = Well...Mario. Lols. Ratchet & Clank is a platformer...and that's where the similarities end. Mario doesn't have guns, witty dialogue, or any sort of memorable storyline. Wii Fit = Exercising. Where the HECK did you get EyePet equaling Wii Fit? Sony created the Eye Toy years before the Wii was even thought of. The Eye Toy had exercising too...FIRST! Crackdown = GTA Splinter Cell = Metal Gear (Metal Gear was first...sorry.) : ) Basically...nobody copied anybody... ...and the fact that everyone apparently likes Uncharted 2 better than Gears of War, Halo, or Call of Duty says a lot about your comparisons. You're easy.
Wow, "foreverflame" just got owned.
wow how stupid are you..please put down the drugs..did you say mge copied splinter cell lmao....mgs sold has been around for 20 years..there would be nosplinter cell if mgs was never created. splinter cell developers said before how mgs inspired them..know your sh1t before talking it..you bots are hilarious
Well the ps3 is the king of AAA GAMES AND M$ IS ripping off The BOTS AND THAY love it. Uncharted>>>>> >>>>>>Gears call of duty ON=PS3 resistance>>>>> ;GAYLO ratchet and clank>>>>>>& gt;>>mario eyepet=Wii fit LOL BUT BUT BUT MILO infamous>>>>>c rackdown mgs4>>>>>>& gt;>>splinter cell owned THE BOT.
well the 360 is the king of being original according to you huh? Lets observe.. Forza = GT Ripoff Gears of War = Killswitch Ripoff Halo = UT & Half life ripoff Splinter Cell = MGS (MGS Series was out before you were even born) Crackdown = Poor mans GTA Natal = ps2 Eyetoy 360 Avatars = Mii's NXE = Poor mans Wii Interface
oh wow i just choked on my food, that was hilarious but seriously, -1 bubble for your stupidity @5.7 you can have his bubble
That'd be sweeet.
So if From doesn't port it, we can expect Atlus on it day-two. Especially since they only hav to worry about text.
Is the depth of field blur, it's too strong for me
People like the depth of field? I think it looks too distracting is all. Makes it hard to see what is actually going on
i hope its really hard like demons souls
by giving people essentially Zelda without having to beg Nintendo. Maybe if Nintendo had an incentive to make games for the Wii rather than pumping out more stupid accessories that nobody wants.
I love ! Buy day one ! 100% Zelda Like (Super Nes) <3
WII HD, Nintendo are clever, they don't bother with a HD console until Sony and MS have established theirs, have massive success with the WII and then make Mario and Zelda etc seem fresh and new all over again with WII HD, I am not 100% but I have a feeling Nintendo will win next generation also.
