This is the best Zelda game yet, the best GameCube title yet, and definitely one of the greatest games of all time.

A brilliant, dazzling wonder, no matter how you feel about Link’s new pants. It stretches tried-and-true Zelda gameplay where change was due, and leaves it alone where it’s always worked. If this game doesn’t make you happy, then it’s physically impossible for you to be happy.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker settles it, once and for all: Supernatural forces ARE afoot in the games industry, end of story.

But, honestly, you really need to hear only five words about The Wind Waker: You must play this game.

I'll definitly been attending the EB midnight launch!  I finish uni. at 11.30am on Thursday, so I'll have a nap in the afternoon to get ready for my all night session!

I've got bad news.  My family is having visiters on Friday night.  My parents best friends are going away, and their kids are coming over for dinner.  The problem is that 3 of the 4 kids love my consoles (since they don't have one), and I don't wanna share on Friday night. Why did it have to be this Friday?  It is not fair.  It is not just fair.  What did I do to deserve this?

Guys, can you please mark Wind Waker spoilers on this thread (if there will be any).  Please?  Beause I'll be playing Ocarina of Time first.  Yeah, 4.5 years too late.  Better now than never.

AiAi, I was gonna start a thread in Hylian Legends for us Aussies with Wind Waker, but it would just be the same as this thread as this one, since all we would talk about from now on would be about Zelda, and therefore, this thread would be non-existent.

But yeah. Everyone, just mark spoilers with 'SPOILER' in bold and italic.
And AiAi, if you don't want to read spoilers, just don't come here. It's also a shame that you ain't played Ocarin of Time yet. Shame on you.
Just remember, if you take some photos of Zelda, put em up on your sites (if you have one), and we can all bask in our glory!

Just one more day everyone! Just over 25 hours left!

Oh, and I'm not gonna go straight into Zelda either. I'm gonna see what Ocarina of Time and Master Quest are like first.
Then I'm gonna go rent Mario videos, and have a Nintendo day, all by myself. *sob*

Haha, yeah, I'll have some kind of magical solo Nintendo day. I'll also be checking into the bonus disc before I whack in WW. Need to check what bonus videos we get!

And that sales chart is SAD.
Only 77 people Australia wide bought the bloody Metroid Prime Pak?

Bah, I went into EB this morning to bitch and winge to the guy about if they were going to sell Zelda this arvo.

NOPE

And although I would like getting Zelda at mid-night, I just don't think I'll be going. Too much hassle, and besides, it's not as if I'd be able to play it loud when I got home, parents would do Hulk Smashes on me or something

So yeah, I'm waiting till tomorrow. They're opening up at 8:30 AM tomorrow, just for Zelda. I love EB ^_^

Man, I haven't been this hyped for a game since GTA III back in 2001 ;_;

WHATZUP BOYZ?!?!!

my avatar is teh GONE!

do any of you host any avatars that i could use whoever gave me the link for that kirby pic. SHAME ON YOU. look at me now.. LOOK AT ME NOW!!!!....

HOLY SH1T! those aussie sales figures are shocking!! im worried that nintendo might pull out of australia alltogether! wouldnt THAT be bad. we'd have to import from europe when we wanted nintendo stuff. the thing that pisses me off is that its totally unjustified. people just dont think that nintendo is cool. i think its also due to the fact that the xbox came out before the cube so people were like, "whoa! im just gonna go out and get the "new cool thing" cause im a dumbass. i have xbox now, it has teh powerful hardware! it is the MAN's console. i have halo now. i havent finished it though cause im a hardcore gamer. unlike those nintendo wimps".

GTA: VC PS2 1,642 - 104,360


Man, that's just sad. It outsold Halo too. Why not just call it GTA3.5, because I'm sure they won't notice.

As for Zelda, I'm going to have to wait until after Uni to get it. After a free BBQ with free beer, i plan to go to one more lecture(and pay attention? not really), then go and get WW. Interesting!?!?! I'll see where I end up!

Super Happy Shine Fun Zelda Get Day! Woo!

Zelda is teh bomb!
It's so gorgeous!
It reminds me A LOT of Pokemon, the cartoon series.

My only complaint is that even though the graphics style is absolutely prefect for the game, it's just a tad blurry. You'll notice it on long sessions, especically.

The Bonus disc, along with OoT and MQ, has three videos: a trailer for Metroid Prime, a trailer for A Link to the Past, and a video montage of games on Gamecube, although they're all outdated.

Ocarina of Time is very clear, and you HAVE to play it on 60MHz. The crap thing is that the use of the DVD is all too obvious. I can only imagine it as if the NIntendo 64 was a CD-based console. Saving is a bit of a pain, and the 30 fps is too obvious. The sound capabilities are all but amplified on a DVD medium, and the midi sounds really over the top (eg, listen as the Deku Tree is dying).

Progress in Wind Waker: Just about to board the Pirate's ship to rescue Aryll.
Progress in Ocarina of Time: Just entered Hyrule Field, talking to Kaepora Gaebora (the owl - is that how u spell his name?)
Progress in Master Quest: None. Ain't gonna do it until I finish OoT.

Wind Waker is the greatest cartoon I have ever played! And I'm sure it's going to be the greateset adventure as well.
The epilogue is fantastic. I LOVE the story telling element.

Well, good luck y'all in getting Zelda tonight (and tomorrow)!
And Mario! This is my PAYBACK for you getting Metroid Prime early!
HAHAHAHA!

Hey Guys, sorry I havent posted recently, I just moved into baording school and it's taklen me ages to get my internet connection runnniung and then when it did I had to put up with my browser chrashingevery 5 minutes (No Joke) Anyway I'm currently in our homework time with one of the schol laptops, which work proper so I'm glad I can spend this lovely Zelda Day eve with you guys. I hope you all get the game tomoorw (if not allready) and have fun with it. I wont be able to get my hands on the lovely gold case until Saturday, friday will seem like an eternity.

Abouyt the Wind Waker graphics being blurry, im pretty sure it's an intentional effect in that the camera isn't focused on objects in the distance. It's strange that they include such a realistic effect in a cartoony game but ohwell, wait for it to be used ina  realistic looking game.
partially focused cameras is probably the only rthing stopping games from true photo realism because in real life and in photos your eyes or the lens cannot focus on the entire picture, just a small area. I'm guessing it wont be too long before 90% of games feature a similar effect.

Anyway happy gaming to ya.
