    That Saturday morning cartoon Zelda shit is so fucking gay. The original video demo they showed when the Gamecube was unveiled was awesome. Why did they have to fuck it up so bad!? :mad: :(

    Because Shigeru claimed that movie was a technical demo. I think that was a lie because I heard he was working on that game, but scrapped it after it didn't "feel" like a Nintendo game ie. kiddy, and decided to create what you see before you.

    I think it looks like shit too, BTW.

    Yeah, my fucking jaw dropped. The best Nintendo franchise/game ever had turned into a serious game. You could even see real emotion on Link's face. It looked like a Zelda game with a grown up Final Fantasy appeal. Judging by crowd reaction when that was being played, I think I was not alone.

    I would soooooo buy a Gamecube just for that.

    I believe they stated that after this first installment of GC Zelda is done, they'll go for the serious hardcore look for the other players, but they wanted this look to be first because its something new, it hasn't been done yet, and quite honestly, I think its a fuckin great look to the game, it brings back some of the original qualities of the original game while keeping it relatively up to date graphically... kinda neat IMO ...

    the next one they'll do it darker and more to the point where they previewed it years ago... I'm almost willing to put money on it :o

    Sega did cel shading years ago on the Dreamcast. I think it's a technique being used here to cover up otherwise poor graphics with a "style".

    and No, Nintendo isn't trying hard at all... this was going to be a japanese-only promotion ... as soon as people in the states got wind of it being jap-only... they got on Nintendo's ass and requested the promotion be brought to the states as well

    yeah... cause xbox totally has Nintendo stomped into the ground :rolleyes:

    the only reason xbox has done better lately is because they're packaging two games with it and are finally packaging the better controller with it as well... :o

    They're making the GCN/GBA equivalence of the Super Gameboy. It's another $40 though.:(

    I'd be surprised . . . I don't think they're losing that badly to Microsoft. Links to sales figures?
