GamePro Q&A: Nintendo's Harrison on Zelda

GamePro contributor Bones got a few hasty minutes with Nintendo Senior Vice President George Harrison, and revealed a few Twilight Princess secrets in the process.

Note: this is a rush transcript based on hand-written notes.

GP: How long is Twilight Princess?

Harrison: There are 70+ hours of gameplay -- it's significantly longer than Windwaker.


GP: What sorts of online features are you looking forward to in the future?

Harrison: Downloadable content, such as additional levels.


GP: Any plans for any type of post-release online component for Twilight Princess?

Harrison: I haven't heard of anything yet. I think everyone is still busy trying to make sure the game gets out correctly.


GP: What sorts of differences are there between the Wii and GameCube versions?

Harrison: There is very little difference in the graphics, although the Wii version supports 16:9 displays. In the GameCube version Link is a lefty, as he has traditionally been. All the fighting and puzzles are reversed because of this, and the game basically mirrors the Wii version -- even the cinemas are flipped.

The story is the same and it's basically the same game, except for the big difference in control schemes.


GP: How much will both versions cost?

Harrison: Both will retail for $50.


GP: Will the GC version only be available for sale online as rumored?

Harrison: No, it will be available in retail stores.


GP: When will the GC version release?

Harrison: December 11th.


GP: What do you say to the Wii's critics who attack the hardware specs?

Harrison: Wii is trying to expand the gaming audience, and Zelda will provide the "wow factor." The Wii isn't a Lamborghini, but we'll sell more units. This console launch has more licensees on board than ever before, and developers are attracted to the unique gameplay possibilities of the nunchuku.

Left handed people have played the Wii Version and said it felt great! But don't take my word for it go to IGN.com and check it out for yourself!! This game is going to be better than any PS3 or 360 game for a long time! Zelda is the Best! (Not trying to downsize the 360 or PS3 but they just don't offer this kind of gaming experience!)

There is no mirror Mode the Wii version is mirror of the GC version since they moved his sword hand. I'm a lefty and i really dontsee this being an issue. Its not like I ahvent had to use a right handed controller for 30 years so what gamer is going to have an issue ith it

Longer then windwalker? excuse me for saying this, but damn! Windwalker was a pain in the ass. sail here, sail there, and that Tinkle dude that translated the scrolls but charged you a d$5^ and a nut extra was bull sh^&! Needless to say, I still enjoyed Wind Walker. The game play was a whole lot different from any Zelda game I've played, and yet. It still had that Zelda feel. Now, I can't wait for this game to come out.

That is until I beat them and find myself playing Red Steel,Lost Planet,Boishock,Alan Wake and Mass Effect!! Gaming is good right now! I don't need a PS3 until the price drops! Wii60 it is for me!

Oh man this game is going to kick some serious ass. Because the Wii will have more consoles out then the PS3, this game will sell more units then any PS3 or maybe even GOW's. Bloodyhell. Any Zelda game is amazing. Nintendo 1st party stuff are always excellant in quality. You can never go wrong

Nothing wrong with 70 hours of gameplay, Iv'e always felt Zelda games to be a bit too short. I beat all the N64 ones in about 10-15 hours if I remember coorectly. I'll just get the GC version as I just don't feel like buying a new system right now. Alls I need to entertain me is FF12 and Zelda Twilight Princess.

Zelda is the best game ever no sony or 360 game can beat it! (Even if they have better graphics!!) You hear that Spiky graphics aren't everything! I don't even know why I try?? I mean how do you explain yourself to a Sony boy idiot like Spiky. Besides he's just scared that all the PS3 is is Hype... and it's really just a 360 with Blu-ray.... Sad Sad little lady spiky is!

Puberty is such an awkward time for a little girl. That's why she hates MS so much. The 1st time she played the 360 is when she got her 1st period! Bad memories for her.

FOR SPIKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!November 3, 2006 - Silicon Knights, makers of Eternal Darkness, are readying the forever-in-development Too Human for the Xbox 360, as well as an unannounced title for the PlayStation 3. Speaking to the San Jose Mercury News, the company's President, Denis Dyack, says the next-generation systems are virtually identical in terms of power. "The 360 and the PS3 are equal in power in my eyes," Dyack says. "Maybe the PS3 has more processing power. The 360 has more available memory. It's pretty much a net, net. The public perception of the PS3 was that it was much more powerful. To developers, they look even." Silicon Knights had a working relationship with Nintendo for several years, making Eternal Darkness and Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes for the GameCube. That partnership ended in 2004, though, and Dyack says he has no current plans to develop for the Wii. Too Human is planned as a trilogy for the Xbox 360. Hey Sony Tards I hope you like this article from Silicon Knights!! You can go read it again on IGN if you want!! Maybe this will stop some of the stupidity that goes on in these forums!???

is anyone else bothered by this.....GP: What sorts of differences are there between the Wii and GameCube versions? Harrison: There is very little difference in the graphics, although the Wii version supports 16:9 displays. In the GameCube version Link is a lefty, as he has traditionally been. All the fighting and puzzles are reversed because of this, and the game basically mirrors the Wii version -- even the cinemas are flipped. The story is the same and it's basically the same game, except for the big difference in control schemes. my main issue is the part where he says..."ITS'S BASICALLY THE SAME GAME"........wah wah wah...start playing the duck hunt music when the dog comes up empty handed, because it is ridiculous for a next gen console to play the exact same graphics as its predesecor......the only....ONLY ...difference is in the controller.....i am not getting a Wii but this still pisses me off that they would do this to anyone......nintendo is dead to me.....i will still play my snes and nintendo some day, and it seems i wont be having to big a drop off from you Wii owners.....low blow...but your console sucks.

Sorry allthewrongsystems as long as Spiky is around acting a like a moron well then I gotta be here with him acting like one as well!! That's the only kinda talk he understands is moron. Anyways he's just upset that people who develop for the both the 360 and the PS3 are saying that they have the same amount of power so it's a wash. Silicon Knights isn't the only one. But all the 1st and 2nd Party People exclusive to Sony want you to believe that the PS3 is alot more Powerful than the 360 when it's actually not. The PS3 has a little more Processing power but the 360 has more Memory so really it's a wash. Don't take my word for it.. You can scroll up and read the Silicon Knights Comments that I left before or you can go check them out for yourself @ IGN.com. @ Any Rate people need to stop arguing about which one is better!! I just thought that was a nice little bit of info considering all Sony Only Fans think the PS3 is a Virtual Reality Machine or something?

zelda is gonna be awsome and ive been waiting for this game for like 3 years now. i actually had it paid off when it was supposed to come out last winter for gamecube and they pushed it back again and i was so dissapointed, but im sure this game is definetely gonna be worth the wait and i cant wait to play it. i most likely will get it for gamecube sinc ei dont have a wii pre ordered or anything and wont get one probably til after the new year but i plan on playing both versions. my gamecube hasnt been used since re4 so im looking forward to getting some use out of the cube. the only thing that bothers me is the wii might have downloadable content. that sux since ill probably have it for cube first. o ya and spiky1228 is a huge FAGGOT.

OK. IM A LIL UPSET ABOUT THE LINK BEING A RIGHTY THING. ALL OF THESE YEARS HE'S TRADITIONALLY BEEN A LEFTY. THAT'S WHAT I'VE ALWAYS LOVED ABOUT LINK. IN FACT, ISN'T MR. MIYAMOTO A LEFTY ALSO??! WHY DID NINTENDO CHOOSE TO MAKE HIM A RIGHTY FOR THE WII VERSION IS QUESTIONABLE TO ME. IM A LEFTY. I MEAN, LEFT HANDED PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS HAD TO CONFORM TO A RIGHT HANDED WORLD. EVEN PAST CONTROLLERS ARE FOR RIGHT HANDERS! WOW, I'D NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE UPSET LIKE THIS. ALSO, IF THE LEFTIES WHO PLAYED THE WII VERSION SAID IT FELT GOOD, THE WHY NINTENDO COULDN'T HAVE KEPT HIM AS A LEFTY AND MADE THE RIGHT HANDERS PLAY WITH LINK AS A LEFTY?! OR, THEY COULD HAVE JUST GIVEN YOU THE OPTION OF MAKING HIM A LEFTY OR RIGHTY. I THINK THE WII CONTROLLER OPTIONS SHOULD ALWAYS INCLUDE THIS. LEFT HANDERS RISE!!! LOL SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS

IF all you can do is a remake of a 4year old Sony game for the GC then you shouldnt be making games for any system. MGS TS was horrible idea. Lets release MGS with few updates and charge ppl for a new game

Thw Wii will have better graphics but since TP was in the works as a gc game it would take a much longer time to redo the entire game to look better. Better to just copy it over and add the controls. I bet most ppl wont even get it for gamecube.

sorry, but i think it is hype right now..........i remember everyone acted in the exact same way when Zelda came out for the N64....it was a good game but not nearly what people made it out to be..................i just dont see this revolutionizing anything........it will be the most playable wii game, but in no other area does this game suggest that it will be something different.............the controller does not make the game...............and thats what their hoping....otherwise we could have stayed with the gamcube and been getting good games this whole time................i am still heated about this.............nintendo had me impressed but now i think they got nothing worth my while.

You cant diss the XBOX 360 spiky you really pissing me off awww, I want the Wii, but I love XBOX 360 too so back off cuz. I cant wait to buy the Wii.I gotta have my 360 for Madden though. Im get Madden on Wii too though and Red Steel, I never really played Zelda since N64 I know Im missing out everybody is telling me that. Im getting Red Steel though and Madden Wii, I gotta play Zelda and see what all the cheering about, I never played that game since 1998 or 99. All you guys do is wond about the Graphics, but the Graphics on the Wii is off the chain,very cool. So what 360,PS3 better graphics, Wii already has Great Graphics and the Gamplay is a Huge Add-on.

The Wii just isnt hard core enough for some people. Zelda is the best game ever and if this is the best zelda ever then this is the best game ever, Sony or MS dont make a game this good even if this game was on the SNES it would still be great.

qmoney06 qmoney06

Posted at: 11/06/06 at 09:32 AM PST

The Gameplay in this Generation is bigger than the graphics, because is new and fun, Graphics updates are old year after year snoring...... this isnt the leap from PS1 to PS2 and N64 to Gamecube the graphics already look relatively real now already so give me a break.

Yeah Gears of war!!!!! Oh wait were talking about the elf? Look i feel the gamecube fans got screwed!! Nintendo first tell the public Zelda is a exclusive for the game cube, then they say it's also coming out on the Wii, that's fine but why is the game cube version coming out a month later than the wii!!!? That's wrong nintendo!! I mean gamecube owners have been waiting for this game for about three years. Now if they want to play it first they have to buy a new system. Thanks nintendo that's a low blow!! ThaT's why i buying the Xbox 360!!! Can you say Halo 3!!!

Went to see Borat this weekened...interesting how they ran a short commercial of "Gears fo War" before the preview. Alot of the people in the theater were clueless about GOW and somepeople on the same row were saying "What da F**k". LOL seems like there is just TOO MUCH hype for the game.

Well, here is my honest opinion. Nintendo is a vet in the gaming industry. Their attention to detail as far as there classic catolog will not get old because of the Nastalgic game play. Nintendo never make any major changes to their formula for any of there classics. So, no matter what system Nintendo brings to the table believe that their main games like Zelda, Mario, ect will never fall short of great. For example, the 64 floped, but that Zelda was a classic, and it still had that zelda feel. Minor things are changed to support the times or era of gaming, but none the less, Nintendo doesn't give there games a complete face lift. You will never see Mario dressed in a bullet proof vest hiting blocks with his head to unlock a machine gun turning him into .... Machine gun Mario. The same with Zelda. This ame will be a classic because the game hasn't lost it's idenity. Oh, and F.Y.I... G.O.W is off the chain I watched a supervisor at E.B games play it and all I have to say is! People better duck and cover, or it's going to be one frustrating time.

remember everyone acted in the exact same way when Zelda came out for the N64....it was a good game but not nearly what people made it out to be
Excuse me? Are you talking about Oceania of Time for the N64? If you are. You are SOOOOOOO wrong in that statement it's almost silly you made it. Just becuase Koln you dislike Nintnedo does not negate the fact that Oceania of Time is considered one of the greatest video games of all time. dON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. I could be lying like a cheap persian rug. Just look at the reviews from EVERY single game site. Most of those gave it a PERFECT score. READ THE GAMESPOT REVIEW. Oceania of Time did revolutionize 3d platform gaming the way Mario64 did. Why not pull up gamespy, gamespot, this site. Any game site and look what they all said of this game. What you just said is because you hate Nintendo. Look at Oceania of Time from a non biased view and not a Sony view. Sony has been trying for how many years to bring out a franchise game like Zelda and has not. Look beyond your hate for Nintendo and absolute llove for Sony.

LOL seems like there is just TOO MUCH hype for the game.
Normally most game devs hype their games to silly levels like GOW's. And in almost all cases its false hype. The game fails to impress. Not all games can live the hype. Well today in our conference meeting room at my work, we were given a little surprise today. Hooked up to our conference wide screen plasma TV was the Xbox360 running Gears Of Wars for management to play. The company was given a copy of the game. Sorry to tell you Spiky. The hype for this game is real. I played it for about 20 minutes with other office staff and the game looks and playes amazing. I am a PC gamer at heart. And will always favor a PC over a console. I have played every single 1st/3rd person shooter made. What i can say about this game is simply this. This is without a doubt one of the best 3rd person shooters i have ever played and looks better then any game currently out. That includes any PC game out now. Or coming out with the exception of Crysis. I played it. Saw the textures. The charecter models. The backgrounds. The physics in the game. No other Xbox360 game, PC game or any of the PS3 demos i have seen comes close to the visual effects and graphics of this game. The Unreal 3.0 enigine is real. It is the real deal. Epic have outdone themselves with this game.

I don;t hate nintendo....Nintendo Super Nes was the best system I ever own. If they came out with Super NES 2 with graphics like the PS3 and Blu-Ray. I would definitly buy it. But if it is like Xbox360 then I think I 'll pass. I just hate that stupid GOW trailer that they show before the Borat preview...its pointless and waste of time. People in the theater were like...what the hell is this...its so retarded.... Xbox tried to hype everything up by inviting K-FED to their launch party and puttin pointless trailers. Beside gears of war is just anoth Third Person Shooter. Its like metal slugs in 3D.

Some people just don't get it. Just because the Wii and Gamecube have similar graphics is no reason to dump on the Wii. Have you even seen the video Koln? Twilight Princess looks incredible, yet you claim it's a joke that the Gamecube can produce the same graphics. I wonder how similar those graphics really are on GC, but if the little square box can pull off what I saw in the video it's much more of a compliment to the GC than a rip on the Wii. Why try to make the graphics which are already incredible better just because it's on a more advanced system? So Wii owners have something to brag about? Nintendo knows how to make a good game, that's why the DS has so many good games compared to the technically superior PSP which has jack shit for games. Well it does have an ill-advised movie player with UMD format, if that's what it's even called. UMD will be the answer to a Trivial Pursuit question in about 5 years by the way. I'm expecting the Wii to be better than the PS3 also for the same reasons that DS is better than PSP, but only time will tell. Oh and Spiky, you're a retard.

I'm a gamer for life since the early 80's blockbuster video game champ of my area in 95 the only 1 i went into and I have never been this excited about a system LIKE WII SINCE I was a kid and IT MUST BE GOOD FOR ME TO GET THIS HAppy about it also yea the ps is cool because of the GRAPHICS THATS IT THATS THE ONLY THING PS HAS GOING FOR IT SONY IS BETTING ON GRAPHICS BUT HAVE U SAW RESIDENT EVIL 4 for THE GC AND PS 2 THE PS 2 IS SUPPOSED TO BE BETTER BUT NINTENDO SMOKED THEM IN GRAPHICS SO IM NOT THAT WORRIED ABOUT THE GRAPHICS THINK ABOUT IT IF THE WII IS DOULBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THE GAMECUBE GC THEN THaT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME BUT REVOLUTIONIZING THE WAY WE PLAY IS THE BEST THING SINCE THE INVENTION OF NINTENDO NES AND ITS CONTROLlER WHO IS WITH ME!!!!!!!!!!!!????????

this is pathetic........i buy the best system out thats what i do.......i was with nintendo for a long time........we arent fanboys....there is no such thing as a fanboy.....how big of a loser do you have to be to try and label someone who buys a console something derogatory to try and negate their opinion?????........you guys need to back off and look at games with some objection.........i think we should all be pissed off that nintendo didnt take the time to make their marque game use even half of the power that the Wii has.....i am assuming it is less than half seeings as it is supposed to be twice as strong as the GC which will play the exact same version of the game................the system isnt even out yet, but we are all convinced that the controller will make every game unbelievable..................no matter how cool the periphials are the games have to be good, they have to have a lasting appeal, and they have to be able to compete with the competition.....sure we play old time games when we are bored, but when we are purchasing new additions we want new stuff, not the same thing repackaged................i stand my ground that nintendo is a huge dissappointment with this title..........if the game is great???whoooopty dooo......they could have released it a year ago for the gamecube and not ripped us off with the wait..........why have a new system???? really can anyone say..............i like sony because the PS3 makes the Wii look like a fartstain i cant wash out........this is really harsh i know....but how can you guys defend these tactics....i am just mad that this is being built as the best system and the best game....it shouldnt be and its not........

(no response)............(dumb comment).........i accept that Nintendo will forever remake Tetris in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and be content with mediocrity for the rest of their company lifespan.........i will be very surprised if they ever lead the market again..............sorry to rain on your parade guys...i try not to come on and bash on pages that are "pro" a game.....but i just had to voice it....

wii will only lead due to larger supply for 1-4 months, after that they will drop behind in sales....but who knows maybe they will stay close to the 360.............as for the Blockbuster Gaming thing............i Won in NBA Jam, and some Tenage Mutant Ninja fighting game........i didnt go to any of the further tournaments because i was too young to put the effort into it..........snap..............the interview says....."whats the diff." response...."there is none".......unless the Wii IS a GC with a new controller.....Wii owners are getting ripped and all of us as gamers are getting robbed a next gen Zelda game i think we deserved......or perhaps better said....Wii deserved............there is no possible way a lame console with a new controller will beat massively home entertainment based systems like the 360 and on a larger scale the PS3.......nintendo is still stuck in its stereotype of ...nintendo makes stuff for kids...the other guys make stuff for adults .....pretty simple strategy and they all seem to be sticking with it

they all offer good stuff.............i am just extremely dissappointed with what Zelda could have been.........picky i know, but its the truth.......still, it will be the Wii's best game so enjoy.....i think the Cross-platform game Assasins Creed is in the same genre as Zelda and is one of the fast approaching games that will eclipse what Zelda does.....even if they end up sending a version to the Wii, they are putting effort into making it next Gen..........other games will be soon to follow....the name Zelda doesnt carry as much as it used to.

i know what they want and i see what they are getting.........they might as well place it next to the tickle me Elmo the way they are going.........i didnt respond to your Madden comment because i didnt realize your whole argument rested on its point........but i find it impressive that you picked one of the games that is renowned for being so reluctant to change anything from year to year that they have ruined the franchise........and yes the game is different....they toned down the graphics...(obviously)....and i could be wrong but i remember hearing that they removed some of the extra training options found in the Create a Star mode..........the Wii cant compete with the 360 and PS3, thus they arent trying to.....their entire marketing campaign is centered on not focusing on what the others do, i.e. being home entertainment compatible, graphics, multitasking ( eventhough they have some lame Wii-channels like the weather and whats seems to be MarioPaint), and being compatible with future trends in technology.................if you like the Wii buy it for a gaming console, and a decent one at that. but dont say you are getting the best thing on the market.....you might be getting the corola that gives you what you expect, but it aint no Lexus( or whatever other nice car you want to insert)

Posted at: 11/06/06 at 23:30 PM PST

lastly i know Zelda will be big.......i just cant believe i am the only one who thinks they should have made the game to utilize what the Wii has to offer other than the controller............but wait.maybe i am going about this wrong....if the Wii really isnt focusing on graphics in any way at all, then they havent done us any disservice at all. but then that does mean that Wii should stop looking at the graphics with any opinion at all, but rather just at gameplay.......maybe nintendo was serious when they said they dont want to compete with the never ending graphic upgrades......and they plan on the Wii-mote being enough to keep them afloat...........i guess we will have to see.....personnally i dont see a controller, short of a fully immersive unit (top-gun arcade), having the longevity to keep gamers in......

Uh...while I didn't read every post of your flame war, I also think it would be nice if the Wii version took advantage of the full power of the system. However, I'd rather Nintendo concentrate on the game rather than the system; that is if they think they can make the game better by giving it a major overhaul for the Wii then they should do it. Throwing in a bunch of bells and whistles to show off the Wii's power at the expense of the game seems kind of stupid to me. I think the fact that Nintendo hasn't fluffed the Wii version speaks volumes about their dedication to quality games, and Nintendo's first party games have always been the best on their systems for this reason.

greensabre greensabre

Posted at: 11/07/06 at 03:44 AM PST

For example, if Square decided to release Final Fantasy XII for PS3, I wouldn't expect them to make a huge change for the PS3. Maybe some more elaborate cutscenes, sharper resolution, etc. but releasing more or less the same game on both systems. FFXII looks so incredible that I can't believe that it's a PS2 game, much the same way I can't believe the GameCube will be able to handle Twilight Princess. Bottom line: I bet no one would have any objection to either game if it were released only on the PS3 or Wii and didn't have versions on the old systems; they would simply accept them as excellent next-gen games.

Harrison, "This console launch has more licensees on board than ever before, and developers are attracted to the unique gameplay possibilities of the nunchuku.", now dont get me wrong cos i love nintendo, but isnt it obvious the ONLY reason they are laching on it is b/c of cheap development cost?!? And like when ps2 1st came out, there were A LOT of supporting develepers but most of their games sucked....VERY LARGE AND WIDE DICK. Cough cough Summoner, Portal Runner and Oni (as time went on, the staff who made oni was prolly fired and it only made rockstar better). Thank god i dont remember all the other shitty games.

GT Pro Series, Excite Truck, Monster 4x4, Rampage, Digimon, SD Gundam Breaker, Tamogatchi, and Mobile Suit Gundam are gonna be the diarrhea of Wii's launch and ther WILL be more to come (just like PS2).

What the HECK are you on about Koln, you say Nintendo should have taken advantage of the Wii a alot more. Okay then, what should they have taken advantage of?! Is it power?! Graphics?! online?! Really, what the hell are you on about?! You sound like a you know there's something they could have done but you just cant put your finger on it because you dont even know it. Seriously though, nintendo has pushed the Wii's graphics to the point where any devloper can in the first generation of any console. But i would really like to know what nintendo didnt do that makes yo think Zelda isnt a good game apart from your denial and ignorant bias. Skipping that, i believe Zelda will be a good game and from the reviews i've read, it very much sounds like it is a massive (i mean that literally) game but i still dont know if i'm going to purchase it since i havent purchased any Zelda game since kingdom gone.

Tyrant23...............maybe it is a false assumption to make that the Wii being released some years after the GC is technically more advanced as a gaming console.......if that is wrong i apologize and should change what i expect from future console releaes.........however if i am right and the Wii does offer more gaming potential then i am 100% right..............can any of you see the delima......the exact same Zelda game plays on the GC......meaning that in no way did they utilize the Wii....otherwise this would not be the case.

The system is only $250 thats how much the psp cost and I am sure that the Wii is more powerful than the first Xbox because Zelda and Red Steel look better than all the Xbox games I have played. Yes I have played halo but Zelda looks better than both Halo games.

i wasnt guessing........that is what i have heard from reports.....the Wii is slightly more powerful that the original xbox.........its a great deal on a console, and Zelda is going to be a great installment of the franchise......but the Wii should be getting a better version......how can them releasing the same game proove they value gameplay over all the other factors........the game should have been completed earlier but they held on to it so it could be a release title for the Wii....instead of a GC game like it should have been a year ago.......the first great Wii version wont come out until their next installment.........i am not knocking the game i merely think it will be a great GC game not a great Wii game.....if that makes since

I was just saying that by focusing on the gameplay, Nintendo doesn't care if Twilight Princess really shows off the power of the Wii. If they fluffed the game to have elaborate cutscenes or whatever just because they can put it in the Wii version, that detracts from the game. Nintendo usually seems more focused on their software than their hardware and I applaud them for that. In order to make a Zelda game that truly shows off the Wii's power, they would have to start over with a new game (and we all know how long they've been working on this title). Like you said, the next Zelda installment should be a better showcase of what the Wii can do.

Wow....that's rather neat. Even cutscenes are flipped.

I'm a bit miffed about the mirrored game between the Wii and the GC. It, of course, bothers any nit-picky gamer like myself that Link isn't a lefty in the Wii version (which I now own and throroughly enjoy). The bigger problem, however, is the layout of the world as a whole. Due to the world's similarity to another game in the series, I find myself suddenly going "wasn't such-and-such location over there in the other Zelda game?" The GameCube's non-mirrored world would be a much better "sequel" (and I use that term as lightly as anyone who has tried in vein to comprehend the discrepency-riddled Zelda timeline). Everyone bashing Nintendo for releasing the GC version late is completely in the clear. I wish they had either kept things quiet and made it Wii-only OR released them at the same time, and I prefer the prior choice. The graphical discrepency is very noticeable between the two versions, and other than swinging/flicking the controller around to swing the sword, the controls are remarkably intuitive. I'm not a fan of that sword-swinging element, mostly due to the muscle soreness I'm getting in my shoulder, but that could also be due to my sitting out in front of Target in fifty-degree windy weather overnight to secure my Wii (I still feel dirty saying the console's name in almost all respects).

As far as this debate goes, I really don't know what to respond to. My opinions on other consoles are moot, as the Wii isn't competing directly with the other consoles. My preference towards gameplay over graphics places a bias over my eyes, so I won't go into my disappointment of the other consoles. Man, I get on a rant, and I just can't stop. I apologize on behalf of the Nintendo fans of the world that many gamers between the ages of "born" and "dead" are so susceptible to "Fanboy Syndrome." FS is a serious problem, primarily in regards to major series' (i.e. Mario, Zelda, Halo, Final Fantasy, etc.). I wish to say that not all of us Nintendo fans are like this. Not all of us are big-headed, overconfident, or mentally challenged enough to claim that our personal favorite games are the best ever.

To ALL gaming fans of all consoles and walks of life: Anyone touting any game-- I repeat ANY game--as being the "best game ever" fall under two categories [br> 1. an intelligent person expressing their personal bias and love of a game [br> 2. an ignorant fool who actually honest-to-goddesses believes that one game can be "better" [br>[br> Which do you want to be perceived as? Which do you want to be? We gamers need to band together. We're under attack by enough video-game-hating, looking-for-scapegoats politicians and angry, refuse-to-be-involved-with-their-kids parents that we can't be involved in all of this infighting. We are, after all, playing games for fun, right? [hr> On a final note back on topic, Zelda rocks hard in my book, and the new game is no exception. However, I think I'm about two synaptic bursts away from snapping someone's neck if I see one more "unrivaled, arcane artifact of indescribable power" having been SHATTERED INTO PIECES THAT I HAVE TO GO FIND ALL BY MYSELF. I'm not dissing the Zelda formula, but for once I wish I could experience the fast-paced Master-Sword-flailing action from Link in Super Smash Bros. in a pure Zelda-game environment.

I apologize for both the length of my posts as well as the weird coding splurge in that last one. BB code doesn't like me.
