The game doesn't release at retail till early October, but gamers can begin playing this title soon if they buy a special edition Wii U next week. That said, Welcome to the official discussion thread for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD! Whether you're someone who played and beat this game back in 2003, or maybe you're new and eager to get your Link wet, come here to discuss the game!


IGN.com just released their review and I believe that makes it the first review score for the title. What did they give it? You might not be surprised, but you can look at their review here. For the lazy,... 9.8/10

I have fond memories of picking the original game up from my non-standard Gamestop the night before release. They opened the doors at 10pm and let us get the game early just as the box literally arrived. I don't understand why things went down like that but I was always proud that I was nerdy enough to have been the first person to leave that Gamestop with Zelda that night. Now, I have it pre-ordered at another Gamestop, my normal one, because I want that badass statue offer. As Carlosrox continues to point out, the game looks beautiful and now that I've had an awesome Samsung HDTV for a little less than a year now, I am excited to finally embrace HD with Zelda and see how beautiful this game is at 40 inches and 1080p.

Bring it on Nintendo. I have what it takes.

One of these days we'll agree on something. Hahaha.

The Spaceworld demo was cool for its time, but any attempt at a realistic look from those days looks like absolute crap now while the more cartoony games have held up much better.

@DeputyVanHalen
I don't disagree that cartoon like graphics stand up better but I prefer the direction of OoT, MM, Spaceworld and TP.

@kriswright
I'm sure there's something...it's so hard because you have such bad taste. I mean, SMB3? Yuk.

It's easily one of the most fun features in the game.

So...taking pictures is one of the most fun features...in a Legend of Zelda game.

*sigh*

So the combat was sped up, right?

@GameDadGrant

I guess pressing B is the most fun feature? I played this game to death when it came out, the ability to share my adventure online through pictures and a relatively quick process is pretty fun.

@carlosrox

Yeah, the invincibility timer is down on enemies. As long as you don't sweep them off their feet you can basically run through many of the weaker enemies in less than one combo.

@missypissy
It's cool. I love going through Moblins pretty quickly.

@kriswright@Pokefreak911

You two just agreed that you would agree on something.

Success!

There's a Super Meat Boy 3?

@Shadowlink

Did you just divide by zero?

I wish!

@kriswright

Well the universe hasn't been turned inside out and squished into a quantum singularity, so probably not.

Or maybe I did, and I'm just that good

I'm really psyched for this. Getting it after work Friday. Connectivity's discussion really made me psyched beyond what I already was at.

@DrFinkelstein
Be psyched for THIS. (pic does not do it justice I promise you)



And this!

Being able to upload directly to Photobucket now is AWESOME. Been taking a lot more pics so far.

@kriswrightIf there as a Super Meat Boy 3, then there would be a 2, which means I would be a happy Team Meat fan.
Super Meat Boy>>>>>>>>>>>>Super Mario Bros. 3

Super Meat Boy is a sequel. To Meat Boy. Which I think you knew. I just wanted to say it. I wish there was a Super Meat Boy 2.

Just got the swift sail last night, and GODDAMN does that change the feel of sailing. You can go so much faster, and even if you just want to sail at normal speed, being able to change the wind direction at the push of a button is magical.

Also digging some of the musical adjustments, and the visuals are gorgeous of course.

And hero mode is a bitch, at least early going when there's basically no way to refill your health.
Posted: 10/02/13, 18:26:03
I wanna try hero mode but I'm scared.

Are fairies allowed in hero mode??
Posted: 10/02/13, 19:45:14
@carlosrox

Yes. Only thing you don't get are the heart drops. After the first dungeon it's not so bad anymore.
Posted: 10/02/13, 20:56:37
@carlosrox Yeah, I'm on my way to the second dungeon and there was a fairy outside the boss room in the first dungeon. No heart drops, though. Like missy said, I assume it gets easier as you go on and you can get grandma's soup, and more bottles, and great fairies to heal you.
