Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

But they didnt make it like that. I am sure they didnt just think 'hey lets just put this game in 2 versions that are actualy the same but gameplay style!"

I am sure they debated over this for awhile, did the pros and cons of doing it both ways and it looks like this was the best route.

Its not like they are forcing you to pay for a Wii or any other Zelda game anyways. Its up to you whether you want to buy both versions and play them or just choose the style you prefer.

Also give it some time and Wii TP will be on ebay for alot cheaper than in stores, same with the GC version. Also its not like they are forcing you to pay for both games right away, yet again that is your choice. If you cant spend all this money on a Wii and 2 versions of TP then fine, buy what you can and slowly try and save up for the item(s) you couldn't buy.

Yes, for them.

-They don't need to bother incorporating standard control into the Wii version.
-Some idiots will buy both, meaning more money
-Zelda will serve as an impetus for the launch of Wii (which is why we're seeing a Wii version in the first place--why waste their flagship title on a dead system?)

They ARE forcing you to buy both. If you want to try both styles then you have to buy both. As a consumer, why you would support this decision doesn't make any sense. You're either paying more money, or you aren't getting both play styles. This benefits you in no way.

Why defend Nintendo when they're clearly screwing you over? Give me a break. It isn't the end of the world, but please admit that the consumer is not benefitting in this situation. Giving you a choice is not favoring the consumer. Giving you both is. Nintendo's promise to be an "and" rather than an "or" company has been unfulfilled in many instances.

What is particularly sad is how correctible this whole thing could be. Just allow us to insert our Gamecube controllers when playing the Wii version, and all is well.

That's probably easier said than done, I'm sure nintendo has had it's reason to do it this way other then to "screw us over" for money.

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

Why do lawyers defend murderers? well i really dont know but... I try and defend people who cant defend themselfs in certin situations(like this for example, they are not hear to defend themselfs)

Also, Like Iroas said, its probably easier said than done. Im sure it wouldn't be to hard for them to solve it that way, but say they mess up somewhere along the lines forcing them to delay Wii and TP. which will piss of thousands of people.

Sure they maybe wanting you to pay for both games and play them, but in no way are they forcing you to. You have several options if you do want to pay for GC verison Wii and WiiTP. ok maybe not several but you have quite a bit to choose from.

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

I'll still buy both. I really dont care about the price, considering that the leadup to this game is soo amazing, and I want this game SOOOO badly. I dont want to make the wrong choice. What if the Wii version controls like crap? I have the GC version. Or vice versa?

BTW, I have just found out that the TP demos at E3 were running on a GC. I swear to God. they put a super secret Wii controller compatibility thing on the GC, and the demo disc was a GC disc. Pretty sad Nintendo..

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

I would prefer to buy it on the Gamecube if it does come out on the Gamecube, as I already have a gamecube as it would cost too much to buy the Wii(released later this year). But for the People who have the money, try and get the Wii as the action will indefinately better. Has anyone read the recent Time mag, they reviewed the Wii. Twilight Princess, you can aim the bow and arrow with the controller. Awesome.

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

I just though of something.

Check out this pic from the trailer. There is no Z item holder in the HUD! This means that all the in-game footage is from an existing demo! Im 99% sure that there wont only be 2 on-screen items allowed in the final game. Also, there is a pretty good chance that you bring out your sheild with R. So cant equipt items to R.

What does this mean? There could possibly be a demo that is released to the public, which includes Hyrule field/town, a dungeon, and the Wolf link demo!

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

I have a question here. Do you guys know if the Parry attack will be making a come back. Everybody is talking about Wii functionality, but NOBODY has mentioned if the parry is back. It is just that I didn´t liked the parry attack at all, it makes things too easy in WW. Do you know if it was present at the demo.

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

well looking at the trailer implies that the Parry attack may come back in the game... which i hope they bring back the IronKnuckle guys, those were always fun to fight. Now give them TP graphics and all that fun stuff and im sure it will make a great battle

As for the 2 items im fine, i usualy only use 2 items anyways. Which is my bow and hookshot. well i do have the ocarina out most of the time. SO i will do fine with the 2 items

I was pretty disappointed that Nintendo did this as well. It's simply not fair. They're trying to find away to cheat around their previous statements saying "The game will exclusively be a Gamecube title." Now it seems as if it's been switched around: It's mainly a Wii title, but a crappier version will be thrown in for the Gamecube, for those less fortunate.

Official Art
Scans from Electronic Gaming Monthly (from landofthelegend.net)

Pic #1
Pic #2
Pic #3
Pic #4

(Yes I'm well aware that the pictures above are "old")

A small TP Official Art update (the pictures are from the "Cover" and "Pic#4" from the EGM magazine)

(I found these pictures at ZeldaLegends...they are simply lone official art shots of what was shown in that magazine (since the images were small/blury) )
Goron Boss: Here's my observation. This is clearly the boss of the Goron Iron Mines. If you look at the TP videos shown at E3, there was one or two scenes showing Link hurling a large boulder-like boss. At first I didn't want to admit it was a Goron (I love them...and I still will even if they do turn bad), but now there isn't much to say. Take a look at what is on this Goron's feet. Red and black metal...the battle is taken place inside a iron mine, correct? So those "shoes" have to be it's version of his own "Magnetic boots". And with all of those strips of metal screwed into his body, I wouldn't be surprized if we will have to dodge from this levetating juggernaught as he crashes from above, or even fight him an the ceiling.

Freaky clowns: Hmmm one is short, and the other is tall. Will this be TP's version of Talon & Ingo (Mario & Luigi)?

If this is old news too, quite sorry, I have many things juggling right now to see if this has already been discussed.

Lotor, yes the parry attack is back in TP. This was confirmed at the 2005 roundtable for TP at E3.

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

I regards to whether TP Wii can do traditional controls, I think we should hold our horses for a while. Nintendo hasn't said once that you don't have an option to turn the Wii motion sensing functionality off. It might still be possible. If that's possible, I guess it wouldn't matter if you played with the Wii or GCN controller.

Patience is a virtue

Hairy clowns. No, hairy clowns in belly shirts. Even worse, ugly hairy clowns in vibrant belly shirt drag outfits with sandals. WITHOUT SOCKS.

My childhood nightmares have come true. I seriously hope they're like a boss or something so you get to beat the crap out of them just for being alive.

Re: The Twilight Princess Hype Thread

I don't think those clowns are supposed to be enemies. They don't have any weapons for a start (apart from their evil clown magic of course), but they just kind of look like a couple of losers to be honest. I'm pretty sure they'll just be some of the locals who need some help in some form of clown based sub-plot. *Shudders*

I think that the Minegoron is some kind of slave in the goron mine and you have to fight him as an enemy. Cuz you know, Goron mine doesnt mean that the gorons runs it. They could just be used there.He looks like he is in paine and have been tortured. Poor, poor Goron...
