Is this real? I thought it looked unimpressive and it made me stop listening to Celer. I've never been let down by a Zelda game, Wind Waker (GC) beind my fave. Haven't gotten around to Skyward Sword yet.

That looked impressive, too bad Nintendo doesn't have the talent anymore to pull something like that, plus Iwata is so niggardly, skimpy muhfugga, look at how cheaply designed 3DS is or how cheap NSMB graphics are, it's like a flash game made with stolen graphics.

WW on the GC may have been rushed and is incomplete (missing a couple dungeons) but is by far the best 3D Zelda, it's the perfect adaptation of the 2D games, it felt like playing a cartoon. TP was so miserable graphically, fun dungeons though, specially the yeti one.

Ehm yeah...but what they really need to do, is release games for iPhones, Androids and iPads. Guaranteed success. If they only step over their pride, that is. The older Zelda's on iPhone? The concept of cash cow comes to mind.

Certainly - I've maintained they needed to go Sega's route and do only software (at least on the console side of things) - they'd make a fortune off Apple alone if they brought out a NES emulator with a Bluetooth classic NES controller...

 

Isn't the new zelda on the wii supposed to be amazing?

 

It got generally favourable reviews, but people still said it was a letdown in some parts, and from what I saw from the Strategy Guide in the store, it is heavy on boss recycling - I hate games where you face the same boss, over and over, in different situations.

From what I've seen it's not recycling bosses, but you go through the same areas. There's only 3 areas on the surface: Desert, Forest, and Volcano and you revisit each of them.

Zelda skyward sword is actually not all bad.

They got a lot wrong. Theres no sense of exploration and epicness feels slightly reduced due to dungeon styled landscapes (ie. the desert are isn't a desert, but a mini dungeon that looks like a desert).

This is to make the game more fun and straightforward, I guess, but it actually gets pretty boring and sterile rather quickly.

The motion controls, for the most part, work. Sometimes they dont, but it's not that great a distraction. It's more just the games change in direction and overall blandness that hinder the games enjoyment.

 

It's an enjoyable game. Flawed, but not horrible. Not amazing:)

Is it really pride or is it the fact that the DS out sells the iPhone? Why give some of their profits to Apple when clearly.. they don't need to.

 

Plus, while this generation is on it's way out, and sales of the Wii dwindling, it still out-sold Xbox and PS3 world wide.

 

I'm not sure where the "Nintendo is dying" mentality is coming from. They're still making money, they're still making critically acclaimed hits, fans still like their games and people are buying them.

 

I have to admit, I wouldn't be surprised if Xbox come out on top in the next generation of consoles, but Nintendo (and probably Playstation too) will surely remain a close second.

Yes, I think Nintendo should just continue doing sequels and remakes of their old stuff like Zelda and Mario. I think that there aren't already enough Zelda or Mario games. I think that would make them more original. Maybe they should make Halo 5.

      I've just finished my first level.
      I find it a bit frustrating that I can't access everything immediately, but I guess it's a good thing to learn your basic tools before being given access to all them.
       
      Like I said, I just finished my first one. It's far from perfect and it's extremely short since I can't make long levels yet, but hey... it's a level.

      Japanese artist Geniway made a tribute to Final Fantasy XIII using LABO and the Nintendo Switch.
       
      Amazing what can be done with a Nintendo Switch and Nintendo's LABO cardboard... thing (not sure what you would classify LABO as):

       
      I love the pitch bending by wobbling the box!

      It's taken forever, but the 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' album is finally here! Free download at the following link:
       
      https://atavisticspasmrecords.bandcamp.com/album/beat-the-boss-remixes
       

       

       
      Here's a sampler for the album:
       

       
      And here's a Discogs page so you can add it to your collections:

      Thanks to all the artists who volunteered their time to make this excellent clutch of tracks. Extra-special thanks to WATMM's resident mastering engineer Zephyr Nova who did a great job giving the album cohesive levels! I know it's taken a while to come out, but I hope you'll all agree that the wait has been worth it!
      This is meant to be a free album: please do not pay anything (enter '$0' under 'Buy Now'). I only used the 'pay what you want' option because that way there is no download cap. Enjoy!

      Hi!
      I'd like to advertise for my friend Niclas well crafted chippy and melodic 4 track EP out now on Unko Records.
      First track is an original composition and the three others are covers of old well known 8-bit tunes (two from Mega Man and one from Super Mario Land)
       
      Check it out:

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
