Reggie offers a very revealing and informative review with Games Blog, discussing DLC, what he's playing on other systems, and lots of praise for Super Mario 3D Land and Skyward Sword.
If I had a Nintendo, I'd buy Skyward Sword.
Buy it then. On Topic: I don't think so either. The game may very well be the best game ever created based on what most people are saying..... IMO it looks revolutionary and a gameplay masterpiece. The only thing that might hold it back are the hardware limitations of the Wii...
Agreed. It's an obvious step in the right direction for the franchise but best game ever is a bit much. Obviously this guy never played Bad Dudes. <_< >_>
Lol what a ridiculous statement, Reggie.
I literally spit out my food right on my Tv screen when reading that!! dammit! Now i gotta find my LCD cleaning solution....
I'm sorry but 'best game ever created' doesn't get 9.1 from GT and 7.5 from Gamespot.
"What are you playing on the competitive systems? So, I’ve played Battlefield  on the home consoles, I’ve played it on PC. I’ve played some Gears of War to see how that played, I played a little Resistance . You know, I think it’s important for me to have knowledge, insight on everything that’s coming out. I got to see Skyrim at E3, and I’m looking forward to seeing that. But I try to get my hands on everything." This is one of the reasons I like this guy...
Reggie reminds me of a sleazy used car salesman. (from article) Q: "Now, what other parts of the holiday lineup–maybe not necessarily Nintendo releases–are you excited about?" A: "Let’s talk a little bit about 3DS." It's the way he talks... he's such a fake douche. If he wanted to segue into promoting, 3DS, there's better ways of doing it besides the alpha dominate I control the conversation marketing ploy... "Let’s talk a little bit about 3DS."
imagine if it had amazing graphics, it truly will be a complete masterpeice....in history it wont look that good as games like Uncharted will outshine because of the better visuals.....people will be all like "why does skyward sword look so much worse than Uncharted"
I never liked Zelda and only briefly skimmed the article but saying no game will compare to it is pretty ridiculous. "I don’t know if there’s going to be a video game in history that’s going to be able to compare to Skyward Sword." " I can’t commit that there’s going to be another game that will score and be of the caliber of Skyward Sword. I don’t think there’s been one to date." Seriously what is he talking about? He doesn't even say in what areas nothing will compare. Graphics??? LOL. Story? Possibly but come on there are games out there with deep, emotional stories that can end differently depending how you play. Gameplay? It's not out yet but can't imagine it is on some other level no games have touched. Audio? Again it's not out yet but the soundtracks and effects of other games are top notch and I don't know what this could possibly bring. Am I missing something???
I Think 3D DOT GAME HEROS 2 will be almost exzactly like it
@JBaby343: Brainz :D
i really wish nintendo would replace this idiot. He's not at all interesting to listen to, he clearly isn't much of a gamer, and he NEVER directly answers a question.
3D Dot Game Heros Was A Fantastic Zelda Clone,i enjoyed it
Get the Dolphin Emulator on PC (if you have a decent rig). That's what I'm going to do.
thats why you are a fake gamer
Same @above Im a real gamer but im just broke lol, and Nintendo has made enough on the Wii.
@ Rexbolt Haha yeah okay, I'm a fake gamer even though I bought the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and bought ALL my games legit, buy on average 3 games a month. I gave away my Wii to my cousins but I don't want to buy another Wii just for this game. I can get it for the PC for better visuals and just getting the controllers (MORE money for Nintendo and their over-priced peripherals) but no....I'm a fake gamer because some child on the internet says so. Lool okaaaay...
Doing the same. Good suggestion.
Lot of games have screwed up audio with the Dolphin, and audio is a major part of this game (and most others). I bought Xenoblade Chronicles and also tried it on the PC. While I got fine fps, the audio was completely screwed up in comparison. While I haven't played with the Dolphin a lot, I haven't found in the few games I've tried that the audio is up to snuff. Not that this is a new thing, as audio is almost always the last thing emulators get perfect (took years for the SNES emulators).
"thats why you are a fake gamer" No. So in order to be a "real" gamer you have to bend over and buy all the new bullshit hardware to play specific games? Being smart is illegal these days.
@Myze Xenoblade runs perfect on dolphin now with the LLE Hack, so long as you have a really good CPU.
Had it for years, I had a Wii as well but gave to my sis(you know how dem casuals are)
I have a Wii but even my kids don't care about Zelda or the Wii anymore.
Gonna Boot up Skyward Sword on my PC and see just how good it is.
when did willie mason join nintendo ???
@Meekat - I was thinking the same thing but hold off till next year when the WiiU hits becuase they will have a WiiU version of Skyward Sword which will be much better,
The game was still meant to be played with a wii remote plus, I can't imagine a touch pad improving it without entirely changing the game. It is the best thing to come out of the wand motion era, and the amount of time Nintendo spent making it really does not compare to other games.(Especially motion ones) Everyone should try it on Wii now while its fresh, rather than an emulator that probably doesnt render several things properly or just waiting... Wii is cheap, and this is worth it.
Oh please reggie the game was enough for me to take my Wii out of storage and it is a good game but greatest game ever lol. I've already went back to Skyrim after 3 hours of gameplay. Skyrim owns this game
Yeah, but there's the fine line between confidently boasting your own game and making ridicolous statement that makes your company look unserious. Reggie needs to calm down. He could have even said it's the best game ever, but he had to make it all into some rambling mad prophecy. What are you gonna say when they make the next Zelda game anyway?
I might have agreed had I not been a filthy lefty. Holding the controller in one hand and having Link hold the sword in another is an immersion killer :( stolen from a random LoZ forum: "Miyamoto is left-handed. 'link' (spelled differently, but same sound) means 'left' in German. A left-handed swordfighter is generally more effective then a right-handed one, since most people are not used to fighting left-handed people."
It's usually pronounced "links."
Not 'usually', more like 'always' and it is also written this way. 'link' without s means something different. As in 'ein linkes Ding' is something that is crooked, something fishy.
Yeah. Links is also the dutch word for left. not Link. LOL. And "link" also translate to what KUV1977 said. He is named "Link" because they wanted you to be the player. At least that's what one of the producers said in an interview.
What else would you expect him to say,even if it's a woeful immature statement.
confidence is one thing. delusions of grandeur are another thing entirely ;)
Can I have some of whatever he's smoking?
Im amazed the journalist managed to stay awake during the interview.
I always get a laugh out of that picture.
Now that you mention it...I scrolled up, and I did laughed a little...lol
How about his other famous pic? You know, the one with him shrugging at the camera like "I have no idea, but I'm rich so why the f*** should I care?"
"Fuck it..." http://tinyurl.com/7rw42uq
That picture always creeps me out. He looks sinister
How unprofessional do you have to be to make a statement like that?
Well if that's the case, the heads of pretty much every cooperation within the video game industry are pretty unprofessional. I bet sometimes, things must slip out their mouths and they think, "Oh dear..." because you know, the internet never forgets lol.
I'm not sure if this statement could be true, but if this game lives up to my expectations it will be the best game I have ever played! But then it would have to beat Uncharted 1-3, Skyrim, Ocarina of time and Kingdom hearts wich is my favourite games.. Guess I'll find out today! :)
Yep, it most likely won't be "the best" game ever, but it could end up being of "one the best".
And really, that's all that he needed to say. Not that it will be the best game ever but that it will comfortably fit in with the true classics that were once considered to be "The best games ever" Not exaggerated and certainly not unprofessional Oh, and Reggie is also the asshole who is preventing Xenoblade's localization.
im sure more than a few people will call this the best game of all time. its better than OOT in my opinion
pfft they said the same thing about orcarina of time, well until this came out
Well it's not like he can speak the truth, that what he says is his opinion or maybe to him it may not be his greatest game, but since it'll bring in the money he just so happens to "have" to like it. Hell, people would like almost anything that brings them more money. Btw i disagree with this guy as, even if it were to be the best game in Nintendo's history it is impossible to actually be considered the game of all time as that is a opinion. The issue with opinions is that if one says that something is, another can say the opposite.
And when you're in a position like he is, you really shouldn't be giving your personal opinion at all.
He's just doing PR. It's the natural thing to do in his position.
Exactly, Reggie has to be bias towards his company, whether he likes it or not (doubtful, for bringing him money) and he must not downplay it.
It it allowed you to use a gamecube controler I would buy it....I just can't be arsed anymore to play it with motion controls.
too bad. this game nails the controls. its true motion control in a really solid game.
When I read the title, then the story and then looked at his picture. I thought, he must subscribe to Awkward Family Photos!
If he said this about a game that he wasn't directly involved in, that would be a story. Instead, this is the equivalent of "Parent Says Their Child Is Awesome."
parent says their child is better than everyone else's child
If I had to save Skyward Sword or some other game from drowning in a river I would save Skyward Sword...LOL
"But what we’re unwilling to sell a piece of a game upfront and, if you will, force a consumer to buy more later." ^ I don't own a Wii but Nintendo just won back some respect. At least their games don't have DLC on disc.
Sometimes thatis the case. But a decent amount of the time DLC is new content. Look at RDR and Fallout 3. I just think nintendo doesn't know how to DLC. I remember when Reggie was talking about the wii 5 years ago and he was talking about getting new caves to download as twighlight princess. Nintendo has just seriously been behind these last two generations on several fronts.
yes but thats a minority, the majority of devs, pack it all in the disk and then charge you to unlock the content.
I could think of a few. How ignorant can Reggie get? "NO GAME IN HISTORY CAN MATCH SKYWARD SWORD!" I think others could think of a few too.
Like what? I dont know any other game similar enough to Zelda to compare. And it is the best Zelda game.
Reggie doesnt mean a game like Zelda to compare to Skyward sword. He said "no game in history" as in from all Genres.
Someone needs to replace that current article picture with this one, which comes with most Reggie fail quotes.
6 hours in, Skyward Sword is the best game I've played this year. Reminds me of why I like gaming. Back in the days when gaming wasn't about over the top cinematics, online gameplay and graphics, and instead was about amazing fantasy worlds and addictive, fun gameplay. Skyward Sword holds true to that. Sure I love my big blockbuster titles like Battlefield and Uncharted, but Skyward Sword to me, is what gaming is really all about. One temple done, another 6/7 more to go :] EDIT: What about Skyrim? lol Whats that got to do with anything. Looking forward to buying it in December, but I don't see how its relevant. May be the best game you've played all year, but that's objective. ] Also this is taken completely out of context. Read the article, and the original quote. What other games do you know are comparable and as good as Skyward Sword? Unless there are other adventure RPG's with 1:1 motion controls for combat and puzzle solving then enlighten me. Also if you read the full comment, he then goes on to clarify and says what he means is that he doesn't believe Nintendo will produce another game for the Wii that will be on the same level as Skyward Sword. Learn to read people, I know this is N4Nintendo Haters but c'mon.
Skyrim says wassup.
