So they cut content, add bloom and rezz up the game and it's $50 now? At the same time we get Halo:CEA, Dota2 and MGS:HD.. all for less.

Actually Wii U games go for $60, not $50 like they did on the Wii. Anyhow, if I had a Wii U I'd throw down, not like there's much else to look forward to for a long while, plus Nintendo games tend to take FOREVER to drop in price, if at all, it might go out of publishing before the price drops.

Not worth 50 to me as I've already played it. 

But hey, people like to pay for their online gaming year after year and I think thats a total waste.  People rush out to spend 60 bucks on little 10-12 hour games, mediocre games and games that dont have a quarter of the quality or content found in WW.

If you find value in it then cool.  If not, then dont buy it.

What else are they going to play? 

A remake is only worth the full price of admission if they do a Resident Evil 1 type of remake. 

Charging for HD mode is awful, but nostalgia is a powerful tool and Nintendo knows people will buy it.

$50 is steep for any remake unless there is a ton of added content or multiple games in a collection.

It doesn't matter how much Nintendo thinks it's worth, it's how much their consumer base thinks it's worth. And I don't doubt many hundreds of thousands of people will buy it over the course of the console's lifetime.

Well you not playing it yet doesn't mean it isn't an old game. That'd be like me saying Age of Empires HD aren't old games because I haven't played them yet.

Why do people keep saying it's $50, it's $60...

$60

$60

And I don't imagine it'll be any cheaper on the Wii U Shop Channel, everything on the 3DS eShop goes for full retail price.

I find the game looks nice in motion but I'd agree that charging full price for a HD res bump with some bloom lighting here and there is a bit much.

Especially considering a lot of gamers have already experienced the game either on GameCube and Wii or Dolphin in HD resolution.

Atleast they could add a new dungeon or two and up the difficulty.

A lazy remake (more like a half assed port lel) is not worth 50$.

If they were to remake the models then I'd say it would be worth it. As it stands it looks terrible, I'd rather play the original using... alternative methods.

The game was fantastic.  I still have it somewhere, but i can't seem to find any store that sells GC's.  Only time i regret selling my Wii.  Majority of the time i used it was to play Gamecube games.  

 

No chance in hell would i pay 50 bucks for HD resolution when all the other graphical assets are crap.  I did enjoy the style.

They trimmed down on the tri-force quest. Not that I'm against that but it's still cut content.

Paying for online is a new game?  I guess it is for cows.

Anyways, I wouldn't expect you to get what I was saying.  I was talking about VALUE.  Simple stuff really.  New or old has nothing to do with it.

I like how it's ok for cows and lems to get HD remakes (regardless of quality) but when sheep finally get them? LOL HOW COULD YOU DEFEND PAYING MONEY FOR THIS LOL DRONES!

-Revised graphics
-New difficulty mode
-Tweaked the game's content to streamline it
-Tweaked gameplay, such as making the boat go faster which was limited in the gamecube version due to tech and changing the triforce fetch quest
-New Miiverse/message in a bottle feature

Full price may seem like much but outside of the internet, no one really cares.
