    Wii Sports is not "mediocre junk".

    And you're basing this off of what?

    They've released Twilight Princess, Super Paper Mario, Metroid Prime 3, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Mario Kart Wii within the Wii's first 2 years. Wait at least 1 or 2 more years before you go on about how they've ignored the hardcore gamer. Most of what you're saying is just your speculation.

    You make it sound like Nintendo is the only one that's trying to expand their market to more mainstream audience. That's been the goal of all three this generation. That's why ALL games these days are for the most part way easier than games back in the day, as someone earlier pointed out.

    Or I guess that Sony made the blu-ray player addition an essential part of the PS3 for the "hardcore gamer". Oh, except many hardcore gamers couldn't afford the system because of it. Nintendo just went a different direction to appeal to mainstream consumers, while Sony and Microsoft thought it was in making their systems multimedia centers. Tell me how renting movies or going online is supposed to satisfy someone who wants to play games? Advanced graphics were pretty much the only major innovation Sony and Microsoft brought to video games this generation. Nintendo just beat them out. So don't blame Nintendo for this, because the tiny percentage of people who call themselves "hardcore gamers" was never the target audience for videogame makers, especially this generation, and inevitably games targeted for that group of people were going to decrease anyway.

    C'mon IGN, is it too hard to give a better description than "older Link".

    its a link in his 20's.

    i read that somewhere. ill look for the site again, saw it last night.

    i hope theres some blood in this one...and more exploration... like Oblivion, you can get different types of weapons that do different things, but u dont HAVE to have them. like have the master sword of course, but also have like a dagger or something.

    i would love if it had weapons kinda like assassins creed mixed with Oblivion.

    and for god sakes....LET LINK BE ABLE TO JUMP!

    could u imagine running...jumping off a cliff or something, a high point in a dungeon...whatever... and having the ability to throw a dagger, shoot an arrow, something like that....pull out your hookshot and grab a target.

    I just hope this new Zelda doesn't go like Majoras Mask. Not because I didnt like Majoras Mask, I just didn't feel like I was really in a Zelda world...

    And bring back the gauntlets, the higher breathe times to swim, the 3 tunics, and much more mini-games, there were relatively easy this time I thought.

    Finally. This game should be out in 2010, but given no concept art to watch officially but that means we won't see it until at least 2011.

    Hopefully it is cool, but this talk of Link without a sword has me a bit worried. Futuristic Hyrule? Sure. But a Zelda game without Link as the main character as some rumors state, no thanks.

    The Kotaku post speculates that the..thing next to Link may be the living incarnation of the Master Sword. I can see it. The gem is like the one on the Master Sword. The blue waist is like the hilt, the legs have a checkered pattern like the handle.

    I thought it would be a bit more...different. Everyone has been talking about how mature he looks but he looks the same as he did in Twilight Princess (which I loved)
