  • Long time Nintendo fan, seriously pissed off.

    The Lowdown:Could Be Sweet Because: Could Be Wiik Because: Expect to Play It: End of 2006 (?)
    :rant:I can't believe it. They lead us along for a year and a half about Zelda: Twilight Princess, and all this "oh its not ready, we're not happy" crap. I am willing to bet they knew all along they wanted it for the Revolution, or I'm sorry, the "Wii".
    What the :!$#%: ing kind of name is Wii?????
    So now the new Zelda game I have rather patiently been waiting for since it was supposed to come out last fall is now on a new system. Which means if I want it, I have to get the new system right away...wasn't my plan. On top of that here they are advertising a new game for a new system, which is actually just a game from their old system...again decieving.
    I feel lead on regarding Zelda. I have always supported Nintendo, always stuck to their systems. Is this anyway to treat your fans Nintendo? Take a highly anticipated GC game...delay it twice then tell all those fans they can get it...on your new system.
    :verymad: :argue:

    Re: Long time Nintendo fan, seriously pissed off.

    um the way I read the announcement was that they will be launching with two different versions of the game

    one will be GC only and one will be Wii only rather then the half compatible game that has been rumored


    I'm pretty sure IGN stated there would be two versions this week right in the show

    heck other gaming sites have the news too

      Um, Twilight Princess is going to be both the GameCube and Wii.

      Edit: Wow was I late with that one.

        I want to buy a Wii.....it sounds so cool, and reminds me of the classic don’t modern... and doesn't have the hi depth that’s not needed in this generation....

          Alright, phew. The only E3 Zelda news I had seen so far was that release, and boy did it have me fuming.

          Thanks.

            They've done what you describe before though.

            Eternal Darkness, Mario 128, Starfox 2, etc.

              Why is everybody so pissed because there is no price and no release date???

              Everything else regarding the system sounds awesome.

              Now I just need to figure out how to get a 3rd gaming system hooked up to my TV ... (I hate using the front AV inputs)

                Starfox 2 was cancelled and never came out. Starfox 64 was a whole new project, same with Starfox DS.

                  I'm more concerned about my Zelda.

                  Actually, considering what the 360 goes for, and what PS3 is going to retail for ($499 or $599) I'd say we're better off not knowing.

                    Star Fox 2s release was most likely cancelled because:

                    It was too expensive to develop for a system at the end of its prime.

                    Nintendo did not want to drive customers' attention away from the yet-to-be-released Nintendo 64.

                    Nintendo may have already planned a Nintendo 64 Star Fox-title and did not want to release two separate games.

                    The game was to be released at a time too near to when next-generation consoles (at the time) PlayStation and Sega Saturn were coming out.

                    Although the game's release was cancelled for the SNES, some of the gameplay and ideas were salvaged and transferred to Star Fox 64.
                    "We borrowed several ideas. All-Range mode, Multi Player mode, and the Star Wolf scenaria [sic] all came from Star Fox 2. I'd say 60% of SF64 comes from the original game, 30% from SF2, and 10% is entirely new." — Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo Power(January 1997)
                    I think it's probably safe to say that the development and cancellation of the first game directly impacted the other, and they weren't two concurrent projects.

                      One could say the same about Microsoft / Bungie with the Halo series. Although they've never explicitly *promised* that there would be a Halo 3 on the original XBOX, the cliff-hanger ending of Halo 2 made the next in the series inevitable.

                      I've been holding off on purchasing the 360 for the fact that a) it's too expensive, and b) there aren't any games that have really caught my attention yet (though Oblivion looks just a bit tempting).

                      So, once the price drops and Halo 3 hits the shelves, I'll probably have to bite the bullet and get my 360.

                      Why does capitalism taunt me so?!?! :greedy:

                        Do you think its going to be alot or something? It probably won't be more than $250 max.

                          Mario 128 was never a game

                          there was a technical demo way back when the Gamecube was first shown to people under that name but there wasn't an actual game design

                          however the name caught on with fans and people have been demanding it ever since

                          Mario Galixy is for sure not Mario 128 I can tell you that much

                          not sure on Eternal Darkness and starfox 2 was already mentioned

                          sometimes this stuff happens the deal with Zelda was that it was promised for sure

                          and Nintendo is staying true to the promise which is good and alot of people like that there will be two ways to play

                            I'm gonna say $300-350.
                            Microsoft has shown you can get people to cough up ridiculous amounts of money for a system (360) so I think that is why Sony is comfortable with thier PS3 price and why Nintendo will jump on, even if they want $250 and ask for more to start.

                              nintendo has said that it will cost less than others.
                              and plus, software developing costs for the wii are oh so much lower than the other two, so game costs probably won't be affected very much either.
