I would have made this joke@当時 had I known any elementary physics facts. (You've been abducted into this joke's troupe and forced to play the role of an electron)

Svejk: BOTW sucks because no traditional dungeons.

Nintendo makes a game where you have to problem solve to progress essentially making everything about puzzles and problem solving and dungeons.

Svejk: This looks like a bad Zelda.

:yeshrug

Princess Zelda represents the Triforce of Wisdom. It makes sense she wouldn't use a sword. This is a refreshing take on the franchise.

Dragon Quest looks incredible. Making I and II remakes is also a great way to honor Toriyama's legacy. Hearing that theme always gives me goosebumps. The curious thing is that they're making the whole trilogy but III is far more complex than 1 and they're going from III to 1. It gives the hope they might make DQ1 more robust and less simple. I don't know but I'm interested to find out. Hopefully you're still solo because that gives DQ1 its unique flair that feels uniquely DQ1.

Romancing Saga 2 looks great. Will cop Luigi's Mansion 2 (never played a single one of those games), Fantasian, Zelda:Zelda, and Donkey Kong.
It's straying away from sword combat. A Zelda staple. It's about the Sword and the one who wields it.

Don't get me wrong, the game looks like a great game, but not a good Zelda. Them changing the formula doesn't breath fresh air into it, it's simply straying from what makes Zelda a Zelda. It's clear Nintendo doesn't want to associate itself with weapons of any sorts. The Master Sword now breaks ffs.

PS1 already did this better with Brave Fencer Musashi. It still allowed sword combat, which expanded throughout the game, but let you use the sword to absorb powers from enemies and objects to fight enemies with different abilities and clear obstacles, yet this gets gushed over, I guess because you play as the princess. *shrug

And yeah, DQ looks fantastic. Those were the highlight of the direct for me.  Only played DQI & V, but I'm super excited about these 2DHD remakes.  I think they look aesthetically pleasing.  I'd drop an easy $60 if they made a Xenogears in this style.

MP4 I've let soak in more and do look forward to it.  It looks like the almost 20 yo trilogy, but that's ok. Would I get a Switch 2 for it? Probably not.

Die Hard arcade and DC2 are so much fun.  Doing the grapple combos were the best.

Yeah, these are so good.

I still can't believe this and I'm salivating at the idea of IV - VII like this. I cannot wait to play this.

I've played D and D2 already, and have Nights and Guardian Heroes downloaded, they're on the list!

Nights is one of the rare perfect games. Enjoy.

THIS is the new Zelda??  Whyyyyy?  Wtffffff.  :notlikethis

You had ONE job, Nintendo...

Looked great- u crazy.
Looks like a great game... But a shitty Zelda.  They're going to continue to neuter the Zelda franchise with their inching away from actual sword combat.  The trailer started strong with Link kicking ass with new combat, but record scratched into puzzle platforming, magic using.  If there's playable sword combat in there, they should've showed it.

Check out D, D-2, Nights, Guardian Heroes (on xbl for 360), Demi.
I regret not giving Guardian Heroes an honest try back then. I bought it cuz it was Treasure and had great reviews, but the controls and the plain shifting just did not click with me at all back then for some reason.  Sold it off pretty quickly and struggled to buy it back when bork told me I made a big mistake.  :fbm

Don't worry, it's only worth $5 now. :trumps
