Screenshots comparing the arty styles of Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and Wind Waker
Very nice. SS looks much better
wow nintendo milking much in this game? That console ( Wii) is just sad, i wonder if Wii only owners knew what they were missing, they are stuck in last generation. So Nintendo purposely is not satisfying it's core audience that has kept them afloat for over 20 yrs milking in this game ( and tons of franchises like , mario, donkey kong...).....FINE NINTENDO!
Infamous - 2009 / Infamous 2 - 2011 Killzone 2 - 2009 / Killzone 3 - 2011 LittleBigPlanet - 2008 / LittleBigPlanet 2 - 2010 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - 2007 / Uncharted 2 - 2009 Let's not even talk about Activision with their endless myriad of COD and music games. Everyone milks.
Wow, 2 infamous games, 3 killzones. And... Oh yes, over 200 mario games! I wonder who milks more, nintendo or sony?
At least Sony gets new IPs every generation.
Everything successful will be milked in one way or another. Nintendo just happens to be really successful with what they release; hence, they "milk" their franchises. It's business. Sony and Microsoft know it as well. :) @seij555: Nintendo is also releasing a new IP every generation. Don't ignore the games they develop/publish that may not be under your radar.
Are you serious? Edit: Below me (Menech), are you f_cking serious? Edit again: Why so small screenshots? and why Twilight Princess image's quality so low? Edit: despair, I was asking PhilipLarkin about this line "SS looks much better", not knightdarkbox. As for knightdarkbox, I do agree with him.
he's not completely wrong, Nintendo has made millions of dollars on nostalgia, creating new games with old faces and not caring to bring new ideas and IPs to the table. If Mario Galaxy or Zelda SS were games without Mario or Zelda(Link) involved or in the name would they get the same praise and recognition as they do now? Its doubtful, just watch Darksiders which got blasted for copying Zelda when Zelda copies itself every installment and gets praises for it. Nintendo are very smart to know their audience, as long as people are willing to shell out $50 to play on nostalgia then Nintendo will keep bringing out Zelda, Mario and Metroid games in bulk. Now we have to add Donkey Kong(exactly like the snes version), Pokemon and with Kid Icarus making a comeback its gonna get a ton of sequels and prequels and spin offs once it sells.
I dont see the problem, These games are good. Really what is the problem? Sure its a bit of nostalgia, but nothing can beat the nostalgia of how you remember the games, so the only thing that remains is to say that these games are actually good. If its pure nostalgia then it would only leave a bad taste since it wont be as you remember it in the past. And if they made the games with different characters yet same style of gameplay they would get the same praise as its made by the same guy. If these games were crap they wouldn't be making them. Its not just the fans buying these games, also new comers. And you pretend these games never did something different internally.
Its graphics are way better then KillZone 3 IMO.
is the best looking game period
Report the troll^ his last 10 comments are just about how crappy he thinks everything PS3 related is.
The Wii, DS, and soon 3DS are great systems with really awesome games.... Nintendo won E3 hands down. Can't wait for Zelda: Syward Sword!!!! Go to youtube and watch demo's and read all the positive impressions. I have seen surveys on game sites with over 1,000 votes saying 80% of those votes love the new art for SS. ;) in fact, there is a survey when you click the link, it says 77% like the art versus just 23%. Majority wins.
Mods won't ban 360 trolls. But if a PS3 fan says "RROD" he'll get flagged for trolling. xD
Skyward Sword will be amazing!
At first I wasn't sure what to make about the art style, but I've gotten used to it.
I prefer both windwaker and TP over SS.
Me too. I wanted an "adult" LoZ for so long back in the day that I hated WW when I first saw it... until I played it. Now I really miss that wonderful style! It was so beautiful. Still, it's Zelda, it will be great regardless. (And I urge everyone to check out Darksiders, also a really fun Zelda style game).
I tried it out on the dolphin emulator in 720p and the game looks just stunning. http://public.blu.livefiles... I understand what they're trying to do with SS, but for some reason I just find it... bland, like it has an identity crysis. That's not to say everything is bad. I like a lot of thier textures, and I think it's smart to dial back some detail (grass for example). But I swear, those trees are from 1991, and there's just too much colour saturation for me.
The visuals were changed at the last moment, thats why its delayed until 2011. The level design was kinda crap in the demo. But i have no doubts they will make one awesome game.
Very Very Very impressive graphics
Art style for SS looks like a mix between TP and WW.Nice
It looks so good in motion, you can find 10 minute demo's on youtube. This is my most anticipated 2011 game so far. Hands down. :)
All time favorite. :3
Who had the longest lines at E3? Nintendo. How many Mario or Zelda creations do you see in sony games like LBP or Modnation? Tons. Everyone loves Nintendo, just a very stupid few don't. :) At Xi below: I'm not attacking anyone, just stating the facts that need to be said more on N4G. :)
you see just as many master cheif and marcus creations. And just as many kratos mii's and avatars, and cloud/sepherioth, and etc. Attacking people because of their tastes is foolish. Many people feel abandoned by nintendo, especially people who bought the wii day one and got next to nothing for the first 6 months.
Cloud and Sephiroth are not Sony, they're SquareEnix. Really? You knew that right? I mean there are 2 Nintendo console games with Sephiroth and cloud in them, and a 3rd coming. Nintendo has that worldwide appeal. I see people who hate gaming wearing a Pikachu, 1up, or Mario shirt. Fact!!!!!
"Attacking people because of their tastes is foolish. Many people feel abandoned by nintendo, especially people who bought the wii day one and got next to nothing for the first 6 months. " anyone who feels "abandoned" by nintendo needs to get a reality check. They are a business like MS and SONY not some charity. The wii launched with TP, anyone who was ever attached to Nintendo would have had something to do for some time.
Got the Gamecube version of TP instead. It's just better. However i am so looking forward to SS. I don't think there is a single Zelda game i hate.
left handed link was they he was meant to be. All I'm saying is that there are a lot of Nintendo fans who disagree with the businesses direction, and they have all the fodder and to validate their opinion. To call them stupid because they no longer like nintendo, or never liked nintendo is unneccessery.
So Mario Kart Wii breaking 20 million Mario Bros. Wii Breaking 12 million And Smash Bros. Breaking 9.5 million all says that We Nintendo franchise fans aren't pleased? then why the heck are we buying all these games? hmmmmmmmm?
As much as i love zelda, I must admit that i'm not excited for skyward sword.
The game looks great. I want the new Zelda this year ><
