Much rather they remade golden eye for the wiiU and improved physics, but then again, I stopped caring about Nintendo since the cube era.




They did remake it it was called 007 Golden eye http://en.wikipedia....2010_video_game) for the Wii

Two words...
GamePad Support
As such, this is a definite buy for me.

Have to say, as a WiiU owner, was more than happy with everything announced for today. I have gone on the record about the fact the WiiU is not my primary console, so it is appearing to serve the exact purpose I purchased it for... To play some great 1st party Nintendo games.

The other thing I am incredibly psyched about, is the announcement of the Virtual Console, in particular the fact that games for the first 30 days will be 30 cents each. I will easily pick up 10 classic SNES games, and since it will only cost me $3 to do so, call me a happy camper.


you sure? I thought only one title per month up till July are only $30 cents, not all of them? There was a list somewhere I can't find. This announcement was the only true suprise to me from Nintendo, everything else we knew was coming so it was like meh. There was no megaton OMG where did that come from announcement. It would be nice if they did an HD Zelda complilation of all of the Zeldas before Wii so that you could own all the Zelda's on one system.

The virtual console in its current version still upsets me to no end. Stop bs'ing around with it Nintendo and release all of your NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, and gameboy games on the virtual console on day 1. Not just the 15 best or random titles total. Make the WiiU the ultimate Nintendo system.

You haven't seen the SNES market lately have you? A system can go up to $200, and up to $1500 for a new boxed system...... games can go from tens of dollars to hundreds of dollars...back in early 2000 when SNES was considered an "old" system games went cheap, now its in the "retro" stage and games are worth a good bit now...

You do realise they have to test the games with the gamepad right?

Haha, wind waker is the new OoT! OoT was released a total of 11 times last I counted, a right cash-cow for nintendo, wonder how many times this will get re-released.

Also, $8 for a SNES game!? Wow, does anyone actually pay that? Cheaper to buy a 2nd hand SNES and the cartridges.


So because it was remade once all of a sudden it's a cash cow? You probably turned a blind eye to the droves of PS2 remakes I take it?

Also,

N64
GCN, twice
Wii
3DS

I'm counting 5 releases total; 7 if you include the bundled Master Quest versions for GCN and 3DS (although these weren't released seperately, they were bundled in the game itself, so you can't really claim it as a seperate re-release). A reasonable figure for any specific game, but 11 is WAY off the mark.

Unless of course you're including the incremental patches for the N64 version (J 1.0, J 1.1, US 1.0 Gold, US 1.0 Grey, US 1.1, US 1,2, EU 1.0, EU 1.1), in which case you're being ridiculous as these aren't re-releases and many, many games got re-shipped with incremental upgrades from the 6th gen and below as there was no online patching system available.

yep, so if you just want to play some of the games and aren't into collecting, you're better off just getting an emulator and some roms :) (as a side note, love using the snes emulator in my ds flash card)

so you looked for specific low priced ones just to prove your point? Look for original boxes systems, they are hundreds of dollars, original boxed mario games go for hundreds of dollars, heck I can't even buy crap games for cheap on eBay in the USA.. Mario Paint with the mouse, mouse pad and original box in the USA goes for $40+ Chronotrigger boxed $185 http://www.ebay.com/...=item337f48848e oh hell, chronotrigger box only http://www.ebay.com/...=item43b7b4ff00 $43! SOLD!

Original SNES with mario all stars.... http://www.ebay.com/...=item2c6bda304c boxed $125

original SMW box only http://www.ebay.com/...=item2c6bacb6d7 $37! For a freaking box!

even bundled sets of cartridges only in the USA got for $100+... I just saw one that sold a little bit ago... 5 games, $175... that's still $35 a game for Zelda, SMW, DK, DK2, and f-zero

Yeah got a newsletter from Nintendo earlier today and indeed I misunderstood. Just one title a month will be .30 cents apparently. Nowhere near as cool as I thought it was. Oh we'll.

This is a game worth seeing even in it's current state. I'm on the fence as to whether I actually like the new graphical style they've gone for either - even just rendering the original graphics in 1080p would have been amazing. Of course, as long as the music is still as amazing as the original, I'll take the new graphics with a grain of salt. For now.

Are you serious? The Cel Shading technique used for WW makes it an ideal candidate for a HD re-release. Just rendering the current GFX in 1080p would probably look awful.

No, I just searched like normal and picked the first so many I saw.
There's a prototype zelda NES game on ebay for £50K or so, doesn't mean anyone will pay that for it though.
Plus why would you want an original boxed system, what does the official box give you that's worth so much ?

I thought it would have looked pretty good just rendered in 1080p. However having just had a quick go on the Dolphin emulator everything looks pretty bad unless your right next to it, due to the draw distance. Massively increase that and the game really wouldn't look like it was 10 years old, close up objects look great to me. Of course the HD remake looks a lot better from what i have seen, a lot of detail looks to have been added.

Looks better if you configure dolphin properly.
