the cel shading seems to be gone in those screenshots.GreekGameManiac
What do you consider cel-shading? The original Wind Waker didn't have dark lines around everything like hardcore cel-shaded stuff does. It only had basic shadows that gave the primary colors on the character models a cool look. The remake looks like it has the exact same thing....

But you're right, it does look different. Everything is less square and looks way better and brighter and not nearly as blurry. I remember always trying to angle the camera behind the sail on the boat because that would eliminate the blur filter on the distance and make everything look sharper and better. Just look at Outset Island on the title screen (which doesn't have the blur filter) then the island while you're playing the game. You'll see what I mean.

Have you seen the difference between Okami and Okami HD? Despite the higher definition, it loses the "paint" feel the whole game had. I prefer Okami over Okami HD. Of course, it's WAY to early to make judgments on Wind Waker HD. But my point is that unlike OoT for example, WW didn't need a graphical overhaul. It still looks amazing. And my fear is that HD will kill the cel shading a bit.

Uh.it DOESN'T have the cartoony effect anymore.

It's not the same,the graphics are different,yes.

Past few days??? Haha!! I had to travel for work and I stayed in a hotel last night. Since it's always so boring I usually bring an old console with me; it had been Gamecube and PS2 in the past, but yesterday was the first time I was able to bring my Wii since I now have a WiiU. Let's just say it looked so weird to turn it on and have pretty much nothing on it since it was transferred to my WiiU. However, since I am such a pushover to the power of suggestion I totally played Xenoblade for hours last night since I've been dying to after the XenoU announcement. So fun... except I wasn't paying attention at one point in some Marsh and I was minding my own business and the next thing I knew I was fighting a level 84 bird-type creature and I'm only at level 27.... I could tell right away that this wasn't going to end well...

Really? Hmm, I'll have to look at some more info on it, I just don't understand how you'd be able to build very complex stuff on something like that with a controller.

For some reason my teenage self has been clawing its way out of my soul lately, and I don't know why. Well, most of the sarcasm has been aimed at Jason because he's been extra bad lately, so maybe that's it.

And Greek, that sarcasm was undeserved because your opinion this time about Wind Waker is nowhere near as crazy as Jason's about ZombiU and the new Xeno game. After thinking about it, the Wind Waker remake looks more like Toy Story than Powderpuff Girls, so you have a point.

Welcome to my life being friends with him lol

Jason to Jordan: I'm on edge today (Jordan knows I'm worried when I have an attack I could die)

Jordan to Jason: Don't die

Jaysonguy

It's more like

Jason to Jordan: I take six showers a day and wear a hazmat suit around the house, do you?

Jordan to Jason: No, and you shouldn't either.

Jason to Jordan: WHY DO YOU WANT ME TO DIE?!?!

Jordan to Jason: Don't die.....

Then I whisper to myself "because you raise my self esteem by at least two notches every day."

I have another quick question about the WiiU.

I've noticed on Miiverse in the communities sometimes people post screen shots. Do you have to use the gamepad's camera to take one or how does that work? My wife and I have been trying to figure it out but.

When you press the home button, it captures whatever is on the screen at the time. So when you post in Miiverse from the Home menu while you're in a game, the option to post a screenshot with your message will be there.

Alright thanks.

I wish we knew that last night. We were playing Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed. I was playing as Sonic and after we finished a race he glitched into his boat while still driving on the track and was going faster then everyone in their cars. It was pretty funny :lol:

lol, yeah, I was so happy to have that feature when I came across a frozen deer in AC3. I tried a bunch of different poses, including one where the deer's tail was coming straight through Connor's crotch, but I ended up having the deer's head protruding from Connor's stomach. Playing games on the WiiU is at least 10% more fun at all times because you're always looking out for an opportunity to take a stupid picture.

You don't get it.

It does,but it doesn't have the cel shading effect anymore.

It's not the same.

It now looks like a game with advanced graphics,but lost a big part of it's charm.

The cartoony effect is there, the graphics are still cel-shaded. You don't like it because it does not really fit with your idea of the original, but you need to accept it. Either that, or go play the old one and stop your whining.

Have you looked into the Perfect Works book? The trailer for the new Xenoblade made me wonder if they could somehow link the two game worlds, so I was looking at the Wikipedia page for Xenogears to refresh my memory of the story and found out that Tanaka put SO MUCH more work into that game than I could've ever guessed based on the game itself.

And I knew that the Xenosaga games were set in the same universe as Xenogears, but I only finished the first one and couldn't for the life of me make it through the second and never touched the third.

Anyway, somebody did a lot of work on an English translation of Perfect Works. It's a pain to navigate because it's all in Flickr pics, but it has a ton of information about that universe.

That is a possibility too, but I've been pretty good with the courses I'm taking so far. They're not hard, but everything's been regurgitated from my program over the last 5 years...

Yes. So what you're telling me is that this HAS happened before.

And the tower in Final Fantasy 6 that only allows you to use magic sucks...
