Has anyone else seen this? The quality of the next Zelda title was a deciding factor in whether or not I buy a game cube. Right now, it's looking like... no.

Same here. The Zelda series was my favorite non-mario Nintendo one, and after seeing previews for the Zelda game I decided to go with Playstation 2 instead.

Why is it that Link looks like he's about 5 here? He can't be macking on Zelda and look like he's 5.

No offense, but are you guys idiots? So what if Link's a cartoon? Have they ever made a bad Zelda game? (CD-i titles notwithstanding...) I think the game looks awesome, and that and Mario Sunshine are gonna eat up my whole summer.

BTW, check out this screen from Wrestlemania X-8:


Looks cool, but it's still a Yukes game, so I'm not getting my hopes up. Click here for more screens.

I just think that the cartoon graphics will give the game a different "feel." Granted I can't really make that judgment without having played the game, but it doesn't look like a knockout right off the bat. Personally, I thought Majora's Mask took a bit of a wrong turn with the whole time concept. Too much repetition. For anyone that's played it, it's taking me forever to get the couple's mask. I completed 90% of the quest, but I messed up when I finally got to the end of it, and as a result had to start over and repeat EVERYTHING. Having to constantly repeat things just makes me want to stop playing.

Oh, I think the game looks awesome. And I'm sure it'll be fun, but couldn't they have made Link look a little older? I mean, how is Link supposed to impress Zelda when he looks like he just got upgraded to the Big Boy chair?

From a strictly graphical standpoint, I think it looks too Disney. The way all those bad guys (moblins?) yell in unison, etc.

And Lou - THC isn't handling the next WWF title for Nintendo?

You don't handle roleplaying games well do you?

FYI, according to their site, THQ is doing X8 for the GameCube.

Excalibur: Yukes is a development house of THQ, as is AKI. If AKI was doing the game, I'd be happy.

As for the Zelda game, think of it this way, Jet Grind Radio looked pretty stupid the first time you saw a screenshot of it, didn't it? It turned out REALLY good. I think the graphics are fine...and the graphics don't really matter to me all that much. It's all about the gameplay. Hell, I spent the vast majority of my day today playing Daytona USA on the Saturn.

I do, however, have a small beef regarding Zelda. Developers are going a touch overboard with the cel-shading technique. It worked in Jet Grind Radio, Paper Mario, and Klonoa, but I think it's a tad unneccessary in Cel Damage, the new Robotech game (which STILL looks awesome) etc, etc...if it's not integral to the gameplay, you don't need to do it.

I don't know. I've been a big fan of role-playing games since I got my 8-bit nintendo, but I just got bored with parts of Majora's Mask. It's a fun game, but there's too much time where the plot isnt developing and the game isnt advancing. You're just running lots of errands.

I can't see them ever making a Zelda game better than Ocarina Of Time, that game was just awesome.

Wow, that Wrestlemania X8 game looks awesome. Wonder how it plays though? Didn't someone say that some of the AKI team have gone over to Yukes though? If so it might not be that bad. As an admitted graphics whore myself though, I am impressed. We should probably start another thread for that game though rather than hijacking this perfectly fine Zelda thread.

Regarding Zelda, though, at least they're trying something different. Miyamoto usually has reasons for everything he does, and he really is the master of innovation, so lets not write it off just yet. Zelda usually means quality, so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Unless X-8 has he same controls (roughly) as No Mercy/WM2k/Revenge, I'll be disappointed.

Miyamoto has had a blunder here and there. Pikmin, by most accounts, being the most recent one. I don't think they'd let him screw up a Zelda game too badly. He does, however, subscribe to the theory that games should only use one button (the main reason behind the GC's large A button), so don't expect too many fancy controls...

Well, I'll be one of the first to say that graphics don't mean shit, just wait until the damn game comes out until you judge it.

But, saying that, I've never been a fan of the Zelda series, and I have no freakin clue why I own the games I do.

I was mad when I first saw screenshots of Zelda last year. That has nothing on what they did to my Metroid. It's now a fucking first person shooter. Damn them. Unless they make FP view secondary like Metal Gear Solid 2, I might sell my Gamecube...yeah right....I will be pissed though. That's my favorite game. It was the first game I ever beat without cheating (Justin Bailey - - - - - - - - - - - - ok I lied).

I heard it was third-person.

Besides, don't bitch. If you're a fan of old Metroid, get the new GBA game coming out.

Yes, Zelda does look cartoony, but I'm still gonna like it. It's ZELDA for Christ's sake! In a more recent interview Miyamoto said that he's redrawn Links eyes if it matters to anyone. The idea of not getting a game because the graphics are cartoony just seems obsurd to me.

The deal with Wrestlemania X-8 and why it isn't being made by AKI, the wonderful programers who made Wrestlemania and No Mercy, is simple. AKI is no longer in existance. The company went bankrupt. Yukes, the people who make the shitty Smackdown games, hired almost all of the programmers from AKI who worked on the wrestling games. Now there's two development teams in Yukes. One who make good games, the AKI group, and one who makes cruddy arcade wrestling games, the Yukes group. Now we just have to pray that any of Yukes habits don't rub off on the AKI developers.

ocarina of time ruled. Majora's Mask was just a bit to loser friendly for me, but i hope this new one doesn't turn out like a lot of games now. We're anybody can beat it and it doesn't take any skill. Because a 7 year old could beat it. The wrestling games are cool, just once you've played one you've played them all basically.

I didn't think this fight would be worth mentioning but after reading the press conference. You guys might wanna check this fight out this Saturday on HBO. I thought I've seen Vanderpool in action before but it's a different guy I haven't seen before....
