Well, there's one Sunday I won't be leaving the house. Europe, as usual, gets it the previous Friday, June 17th.

*insert pun about link here*

Awesome, a 13 year old remake is Nintendo's big second quarter release, along with a sequel to the amazing Wii Play!!!!

Sorry guys, I'm just one bitter piece of shit right now. Nintendo is my forever husband that will beat me and then tell me everything is going to be alright.

Why you made though?

I know everyone likes to expect Nintendo to come out with "AAA" games like, ALL THE TIME, because everyone holds Nintendo to a higher standard. Yeah, everyone. Even the haters.

But you know what? There's not a single publisher out there that delivers that kind of quality and quantity on that kind of basis. Not 3rd party, not 1st party. Nintendo's already released some great games this year, and they just released an incredible, new system with some great games to play. Yet this kind of stuff gets swept under the rug because "ZOMG, a new Wii Play?!? Nintendo is teh suxxors!

And I have no idea why.

What has Rockstar done so far this year? What about Valve? Epic? Or what about [ insert popular developer here] ? Heck, what has Sony or Microsoft released this year that's so great? What new hardware have they put out this year? Nintendo's their own worst enemy. Their games are apparently SO DAMN GOOD, fans can't stand to be without a new game from them for more than a few weeks at a time.

Basically, quit yer whinin' dood.

To be honest, I think the game might be worthwhile just to play OOT with non-clunky controls. Link seems to move a hell of a lot more smoothly than in the original. Master Quest is icing on the cake.
The original had clunky controls?

I still kind of question the whole "3d not safe for kids" thing...Maybe it really isn't safe, but from what I've read, children develop stereopsis (the ability to see in 3D) around the 4 month range. I wouldn't think they would have anything to worry about, but maybe there's been more research on it than what I'm aware of.

I mean, kids movies are 3D all the time now, but I've never seen anything about banning 6 year olds from seeing Toy Story 3 in 3D.
Exactly. 3D movies have been going for awhile now and we would probably know by now if there were any issues with children watching images in 3D. Then again, this is Nintendo we're talking about, the same company who brought us friend codes because of the huge pedophile problem that exists with online gaming. Oh wait....

It's true. I'm addicted to Nintendo-crack.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go by a switchblade and mug Miyamoto for 3DS play coins.

I think Orbital had preordered a 3DS...I remember that. Maybe he canceled?

Do we know if Ocarina of Time 3DS is going to be identical to the original or are they going to do stuff like recreate dungeons?

@Tranquilo

They're adding Master Quest in. If you never played that on GC you're in for a treat. It's like someone took the old dungeons and gave them a big stir with the crazy stick.

Supposedly there's other stuff *beyond* Master Quest as well, but we don't know what yet.

Yeah, he does look like he controls a lot smoother... the improvement to the animation and frame-rate also goes a long way.

@WrathOfSamus777
But that's not glasses free 3D. Isn't glasses free much harder on the eyes?

To be fair there is a (small?) pedophile problem with online games. I see posts quite often on Kotaku of people meeting up, swapping pics, etcs with underage boys and the like . Most of them seem to be 360 related though. Not to condone NIntendo's online bullshit but a story like that would really mess up Nintendo's jive. People would really run away with it if it occured under Nintendo's system. It's XBL so it's cool for people to meet up with little boys

Haha. I lived with this guy who invited over some 16 year old he met on World of Warcraft. My other roommate and I made it clear to him that we thought it was weird.

I hope so... probably. But it's still a liability having some minor over, you know?

That guy was sort of nutty. It was a very weird living situation. haha. I'm just happy it didn't turn into some murder thriller movie.

So where are the parents of these kids? I understand Nintendo being paranoid about being sued. I would be too if I'd been sued as many times as Nintendo has over the years, so the disclaimer is somewhat undersandable. It's not Nintendo's responsibility to mother everyone that uses their products though. It's commendable and noble that they're concerned about the safety of the children that use their products, but many of us are older than 16 and don't need Mother Hen Nintendo looking over our shoulder all the time.

Yea, this is really key. I actually posted on IGN a couple years ago how I wanted an OOT remake despite the fact that I'm generally against remakes (the other remake I want is System Shock). OOT is still one of my favorite games ever but I had a tough time getting through it the last time I tried to replay it because it just feels slow all around. Link's movement, unskippable text, going into the inventory constantly in certain dungeons. It looks like they're fixing all these things and I couldn't be happier. This game deserves to be played through every couple of years and I felt like I wasn't going to be do that with the original version's limitations.

GAF has a link to a really great 3DS hands-on that I would not recommend for people that are poo-pooing this title. Seriously, don't clicky, haters.
"In addition, you can now aim projectile weapons by moving the 3DS around as if you were actually aiming in real-life, which is a much faster and more accurate alternative to aiming with the control stick (which is still an option)."

OMG. Win.

After checking out the latest batch of screens, I can honestly say I'm SUPER excited for this. Coming from a guy who tried and failed to get into the original OoT about five times, that's saying something. Finally, bright colors and crystal clear models! WOOOOOOOO!

Yeah, this is the only significant disappointment for me. OoT has some great tunes, but the janky N64 sound system is gonna sound pretty dated matched up against the shiny new visuals.

There's still time, Nintendo! Get that Mario Galaxy orchestra back in action and blow us away!

Due to recent positive impressions, I'm starting to lean on the "buying this" side of the fence.

Give me a break. Quit your whining..buy the game and have fun.

I am actually surprised at the amount of people who say they are not buying OoT cause they played it before.

Not looking like this and not in 3D. What the hell else are you going to play? Wii motion? spongebob Squigglepants.

I played it on the N64, have the disc for the Gamecube fromo when I bought WW and I will buy OoT 3D. I think it should only be $29.99, even w/ the revamped graphics...but I would pay whatever price Nintendo sticks on it.
