Second screen is awesome. Is the Zelda overworld on the 3d games as colorful as this one?

Ugh. Sort of. It's a much softer colour though. Did you ever get Twilight Princess?

The thing abou these pics though is that say we never heard of this game and it never existed as far as we knew? And then this pic came out:

You would just assume it was a 360 screen.

When the camera is fixed at the right distance you don't notice the muddier textures like say the ground in some pics. This is a good game design lesson that developers should have learned by now. Mario Galaxy uses the distance to great effect. Zoom into first person and it falls apart.

Sweet. I wanted to pick up TP, but I have no fucking clue how should I play a 3d zelda game. The thought of fucking HARD dungeons scares me enough to avoid getting it.

And who the fuck is this ghastly character? I swear I can see he has no dick or balls in there.

 Windwaker and Phantom Hourglass would be a good start. Easy dungeons!

That's the postman. He delivers letters to Link every now and then. He's hilarious. LOL

Apart from say the Sky temple, Twilight Princess isn't that much of a problem. But then I know the routine by now having played three 3-D Zeldas before that.

Wind Waker is easy enough to go through, but too short and not as good as the other 3-D games.

This thread is like being inside my head.

Now you got me wanting to play Zelda again.

I find it funny that this thread is even this big when I will probably be the only one to play and like this game. Nyaa

Well I hope to play it. The Wii is on a freaking roll, I am thinking of all the games I want to play and there are like 3 games out this month, MadWorld and Sonic next month. But crap, I got no money, I will use my birthday money to get Killzone and RE5.

Seriously i have no idea how I am going to play this game. I dont think i can buy it at launch (with RE5 coming out there really is no point as that will take all my time). I dont know if I want to rent it cause I like to own all the Sonic games, so if I dont rent it I have to wait till I can buy it which will be who knows when. I try not to think about it but I know when its released it will kill me to not play it.

I tend to watch games development incessantly for reasons like "this engine looks cool", "hope they do this with that" and then either not pick them up or get them a year later. But it takes good reviews or tons of impressions from forumers to persuade me - unless I see a great deal and impulse buy. Bully was the greatest impulse buy deal ever.

If you aren't getting this, I don't know if my curiosity will be enough, the previews say that it's not finnicky and the controls are smooth but I'm concerned it will be shallow.

I just picked up three games and for some stupid reason all the decent Wii games recentely are all coming out at once. Madworld and HOTD, Tenchu and Deadly Creatures. And they mostly all fit into the niche curiosity type of games I go for. Then Little Kings Story out soon and RE5?

I wasn't going to pick up Deadly creatures, but after hearing that THQ wont be TV advertising it and me believing that a game about insects fighting will fail. I almost feel like buying it out of... pity. Or just to support them. And I've never done that for a game before.

Real purrdy like. The outside with the carts was quite nice, I thought.

Gamedaily-preview

After an evil force corrupts the legendary King Arthur, Merlin's granddaughter pulls Sonic into the world of Camelot and asks his help. Unable to resist a quest to save the world, Sonic agrees to smite evildoers and do whatever it takes to restore order to the land. What ensues is a mixture of trademark speed merged with slower paced exploration and combat.

To attack, you waggle the Wii Remote to unleash multi-hit combos. In addition, you can jump into the air and perform diving strikes or go on the defensive by erecting a temporary shield to repel the dark knights and other baddies. If you want to lock onto Sonic's foes, press the B button and watch as the action slows down and the game targets the nearest enemy. Once killed, it'll automatically move to the next closest adversary. Finally, you can hop into a giant crossbow and launch Sonic over castle walls and other hard to reach places.

As you explore Black Knight's 13 environments, you'll rescue civilians, upgrade attacks and acquire up to 247 items. You can then use the WiiConnect24 feature to share them with friends (using friend codes, of course). The game also has an online leaderboard so you can compare scores with the rest of the world, and an offline battle mode lets up to four players compete against each other as popular franchise characters.

After the disappointing Sonic Unleashed and Secret Rings), we can't trust Sonic's newest adventure. Like always, Black Knight represents a new chance for Sega to deliver a game that does its mascot justice. Look for our review next week.
