HD screenshots of Wind Waker, Wii Play, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Link's Crossbow Training, Wii Sports, No More Heroes, Zack & Wiki through the Dolphin emulator.
Twilight Princess screends are gorgeous.
TP had some bad textures, but I think it's a nice looking game. Can't wait to see what Zelda Wii looks like actually.
Nintendo should think about making that HD step up next gen i will fly to washington and slap the people at Nintendo if the next console they come out with is not HD. i think the next system should be backwards compatable and powerful enough to upscale last gen games to a 720p min output. but hey..
Twilight princess looks good if you are playing it on a pocket sized tv. When i was playing it on a 26'' tv it looks abysmal. And some people would consider 26inch a small screen. Nintendo really need to get with the times now, they completely messed up not making the wii hd. even in their adverts people are playing their games on large lcd tvs, so how they overlooked hd is beyond me. it pains me to say but, even wii zelda is going to look old fashion.
*Bookmarks article* Whenever a fool tries to claim that "HD would do nothing for Wii games", I will gladly refer them to this.
Wind Waker still looks pretty impressive (minus the HUD).
" Whenever a fool tries to claim that "HD would do nothing for Wii games", I will gladly refer them to this" It still didnt do anything to them really. You pretend the game-play is better now. Sure the visuals are great and the sharpness is always welcome. But dont let it get to your head. Now im a fool trying to claim it isnt doing anything right? Im expecting the link you are promising. "even in their adverts people are playing their games on large lcd tvs, so how they overlooked hd is beyond me. " They mentioned Japan lots of times concerning this matter. They said that lots of japanese households were still using SD tv's. And lets not forget this was about 4 years ago, of course in contrast the HD tv have numbered.
Seriously you guys need to try your wii out on a samsung DLP or the new LED HDtvs. My games look about as good as these games. If you know any one with one of these TVs give it a try it's pretty impressive. To holycow Ummm this doesn't prove too much other than you guys got bad Tvs. Real HDtvs are expensive. I mean really did you expect nice HD out put from TVs so cheap they can barely do HD right, I didn't and I've been happy for a few years now. So yeah HD wii would be a waste right now but next GEN wii would be sweet!
@1.6 That is THE POINT. It would make games, with already great aesthetics, sharp. Not to mention the benefits of widescreen. I don't think you realize how big of a difference 720p is from 480p: http://www.bungie.net/image... @1.7 I believe you're referring to the TV's unscaler, and no matter how grand of a TV you purchase, it won't change the fact that the games are in a 480i/480p resolution. It would still look horribly blocky. "TVs so cheap they can barely do HD right" I don't even know why I'm wasting my time, you haven't the slightest clue what you're talking about. If you don't understand how technology works, don't try to dispute about it.
" hat is THE POINT. It would make games, with already great aesthetics, sharp. Not to mention the benefits of widescreen. I don't think you realize how big of a difference 720p is from 480p: " Nor do i care, for the game itself wont change. These wii/gcn games wont suddenly be different.
Well good for you and your low standards, but it would still improve the presentation of the games.
I've been playing MH3 on my 52 inch bravia and nothing i do makes it look better. It's so blurry but im a MH addict... MH3 HD better hurry up. Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game... i'll be getting this. @HolyOrangeCows Beyond me why people dont want games to look their best.
Its not much of a low standard than logic. These games havnt change so why should i be bothered by HD images?
I believe your assuming you know what your talking about and you know what peopple say about assuming sh!t,you'll make an azz of your self. Holycow your pretty much a retard if you think all HDtvs are up to the same spec. DLP provide a much sharper picture for all content even HD. It's like free AAx16 almost. Look up the tech or better yet just go to a best buy or a tech store a see the difference for your self. I can actually display resolutions higher than my TV spec thanks to this tech also. I do this by connecting a PC or laptop to my HDtvs or projector all the time. Nothing is more fun than zbrushing on a 42 inch monitor. The picture is sharper even for wii games, thus it looks just like this emulator. So before you try bashing me do some research. If I don't know what I'm talking about then prove it with specs and data and not an opinion formed in some one toilet.
nothing too different
Wii's looking stronger.
Not just looking, but getting stronger for quality games :)
How about some HD shots of Super Mario Galaxy 2. That game is a graphical powerhouse; speaking in terms of Wii graphics that is :-P
" That game is a graphical powerhouse; " Or just great artstyle with good use of shaders.
PC Rules. No need of the Wii when you have the PC (or PS3 with Move). But still the emulators developers need to work on better emulators.
yes the pc does rule, but having the PS move will not replace a wii because the ps3 will never get a metroid, zelda, or mario. And I honestly see don't see a huge difference in any of these pictures, it looks a little clearer but thats all I can point out.
What is the dolphin? is it just a wii emulator on pc technology? I also don't see the fascination with these hd screenshot posts all the time. Ok, they look good in higher res, but the wii doesn't output at that resolution so what use are these pics to me? Is it an advert for dolphin? or am i suppose to hang these images on my wall and worship them?
Gamecube and Wii in the same Emulator for the PC.
If you have decent PC, you can run all these games at 720p/1080p or higher.
you just need a $2.00 bluetooth dongle. It looks a million times better with no jaggys and 16xAnistropic filtering. after playing it like that I just can't seem to use my Wii console anymore. I still keep it around for the odd game that's not compatible with dolphin though. if you've got a half decent PC a $100 GPU will easily have you running Wii games.
Actually, to emulate, the CPU is most important than GPU.
It will never look as good as the Xbox360 or the ps3 never
Amazing article, thanks, i have finished WW at least 3 times, i am SOOOOO playing it again in 720p,m one of the best games of all time
I really can't believe how much difference the higher resolution makes! zack and wiki blew me away! I really hope nintendo's next console is hd and backwards compatible with all the gamecube/wii games. Would that work? I mean, the ps3 was backwards compatible with ps2, but that didn't mean playing ps2 games on the ps3 made them hd, right?
And some even had some extra AA added i think, or was juts crisper due to higher resolution I replayed FF9, FF10, Fable, Kotor 1-2 etc all looked a lot better
WTF is up with people calling it WIND WALKER.... WIND WAKER. Jesus. [Yes i love that game and Wind Walker is just a load of crap]
i wonder if the next wii will upscale current games
Water always look incredible when wii goes HD.... But never in the original SD format? O.o Nintendo, coulda-shooda-wooda...
