The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Hero Mode, Features and More
Carolyn gets her hands on the new HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker on Wii U. Contains some story spoilers.
This is why the Wii-U exists.
But i won't be satisfied with it unless there's more stuff to do this time round, i mean lots and lots of stuff. But don't cut out content from the original because it's bs when they do that, the game was great and doesn't need to messed with just upgraded.
Cool. Something I wish a Zelda game would do, is connect all of the fantastic Zelda's we've played over the years; really show that history. It would be powerful and fascinating in my opinion.
I just never really liked how in each game, it was always so different from an environmental perspective, and perhaps that's part of it, but I wish we could see some of that history to know that it connects as we know it does, and where in time we stand; who came before and who will come after (unless its the current).
Furthermore, I kind of wish they also took the Link and Zelda relationship to the next step, not necessarily lovey dovey stuff where they're kissing a bunch, but certainly more intimate through expression.
I was disappointed in Skyward Sword, but something I did kind of like was that the early glimpses of Link and Zelda's friendship was kind of cute. I just wish that sense of history that we've all experience through the games was acknowledge more, and the story between Link and Zelda were told better.
I never got to finish this game when it was out on the cube. I'm so excited that it's coming out on the WiiU in GLORIOUS HD. I'm so f*!king excited! :-D
Lmao at 2:34 in the video: A great thing about motion control is in the heat of battle you can move the first person perspective of the bow/arrow really fast! Yeah, like this game is hard enough that you need to do anything more than Z-target + shoot arrow, or slash slash slash!
Hero mode is good, but they fucked it up in skyward sword. Why was there still heart medals, etc? There's still ways to get hearts and shit in the hero mode. What's the point??? Even hero mode wasn't challenging... enemy AI was still easy as fuck
I loaded up the GameCube version last night. This remake is a bigger improvement than I first thought. It looks way better than the original. It doesn't seem to have the extreme blurring that the original has, either.
This game was perfect with the GameCube controller. It's one of the best gameplays I have ever seen back then. My only fear is how things will work with the Wii U gamepad...
You know, I would by the fuck out of this if it were on the 3DS. There's just not enough games on the wiiU for me to want it.
Um because they are?If my brutal honesty scares you, then you should cease asking idiotic obvious questions. Personally, I just don't see how the Gamepad would work for convenience sake, that a secondary on screen window wouldn't.
Probably the most exciting thing about this is that using the cannon might not be annoyingly difficult now.
I still see the Gamepad as a useless peripheral, really.
Switching on the fly while playing? Really? Isn't that distracting? Especially in the middle of a boss fight or fire fight, etc?
No wonder devs are dropping ship. They just don't have a damn clue what to do with the damn thing! Sorry I'm just being brutally honest.
What can the Gamepad do, that an on screen window can't do?
It is ridiculously frustrating watching someone report on a game that they don't know how to play! Pushing blocks is bAAAAsic. i really want to see the unedited video, to see just how long it did take you to move those 3 blocks. Get it together Carolyn! PAINFUL to watch...
AND listen to. I want your job.
It's amazing how beautiful this game looks with a little bit of extra lighting and in HD.
Even without it I'm still amazed at how well this game holds up visually.
Please go with something like this style for the next big Zelda game but just less kiddie. As in go with the normal shaped Link for example.
If I owned a Wii U I would pick this up in a heart beat, have fun Wii U owners u finally have a game worth buying, enjoy:D
Can anyone please explain what is Hero mode exactly? I dont feel like listening through the whole vid as sound is not very loud and english is not my main language.
Still got this (the Ocarina of Time special edition thingy) for the GameCube, though I haven't played the game for like 6-7 years... Can't believe it was 10 years ago when we got this game for my little brother's 11th birthday... Man, time's a bitch!
Ehh will I buy a WiiU to play a game I finished 10 years ago. No. Better yet, I'll just grab my Gamecube out from the attic.
It looks so great one of my favorite zelda games, itotallly loved wit game in the gamecube i really want to played it again but right now i don´t have a gamecube, because back on thoose days when i played was because a friend borrow me his console, and i don´t think that i will buy a Wii U in near future too bad i really want to navigate for hte hyrule seas again
@zerantoss Please share with me how you completed the Boss Rush on Hero Mode. The bosses themselves weren't hard but I found that I lost most of my hearts on the bobokin run in the hyrule pit area
@SlaviksG You little 12 year olds still snigger at that joke? :S
Grow up you offensive little pr%&k
What makes you think a remake of Gamecube game would showcase the GamePad? Yeah you're being "brutally honest" but at the same time, you're not using sound logic either.
I can understand if it was the Zelda game made for the Wii U that made little use of the GamePad. Also switching on the fly wouldn't be distracting if you're accustomed to the layout of the GamePad's screen.
@Diegoctba How come?
@Metallicwolf29 Since 1 HD remake=samething over and over... How many remakes did Sony do this last gen? I remember quite a few and I really don't see why anyone complains about remakes they hardly take any development time and they are nice for those that want to replay a game...
@Metallicwolf29 Yeah I really wish EA and Activision would stop with releasing the same thing over and over too
@yavix Bills Kills you know. (in game purchases)
@amaneuvering So basically Skyward Sword.
@G4m3r0uTL4wZIn Hero Mode, enemies deal double damage and players won't be able to find hearts in the environment. In fact, the only way Link will be able to recover health is through the use of potions or fairies. That's pretty hardcore.
@G4m3r0uTL4wZ Hero mode is the hard mode, meant for veteran because some say this game is easy
Something like enemies do 2x the damage with there being 0 hearts found in the environent(like chopping grass for hearts). It's just hard mode basically.
@dribblesbarbax Your gamecube is in the attic? Why not display it as one your console collection like everybody
Who cares what you think. She's working in the games industry and doing what she loves and earning ££ doing it! which is a whole lot more than what you will amount too matey i'm sure! Please keep your sexual issues, self loathing and hate to yourself. What you think is inconsequential. Nobody wants to hear your opinion anyway as you are an irrelevant individual. Please think carefully about having children as one day your views might be tantamount to abuse especially if they don't turn out to be what you expected.
