    Looks like they're going for a hybrid between Windwaker and Skyward Sword with the artstyle. It's also going to be open-world, not linear like previous games.

    And now cue the bitching about how Link looks too feminine and how the artstyle is too cartoony. :fawk:

    I'm hoping it's a direct squeal to Skyward Sword, looks brilliant!

    I have literally zero idea what people are complaining about. That looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I see myself taking screenshots every other second and using them as desktop wallpapers. They finally managed to do what they didn't entirely accomplish with Skyward Sword, which was to make objects' colors fade into each other as Link got farther away from them and make them resemble a watercolor painting. It looks astonishing.

    Also, I love Link's new design. Some say too girly, but I just find it perfectly sleek.

    So many cool games announced for Wii U. I have no excuse not to buy one now.

    I don't either. I guess they want gritty like OoT, MM, and Twilight Princess.

    I also like his design. He's probably older than Young OoT/MM link, but younger than Adult OoT/SS/TP Link.

    And of course he's going to look different. In most of the Zelda games, except for sequels, there's going to be different incarnations of Link. Each game doesn't feature the same one. :lol:

    Love to new art direction, kinda reminds me of a more realistic wind waker (which I loved!)

    Haha hopefully so! It's about time that we get to do some more barrel rolls Peppy style.

    I loved Nintendo's Digital Event thingie. So many awesome things announced. However, the lack of a new Metroid title REALLY disappointed me. I'm still hopeful that we will get to see something about it today.

    There's supposed to be an unannounced 3DS game today. Everyone I see is hoping it's a MM remake or a new Metroid game. Mostly hoping for the latter.

    Pretty! I really liked the Twilight Princess visuals, which I feel stand apart from OoT/MM and not just because the graphics were better developed. But these feel a little "purer" to Zelda, I think.

    Too bad it won't be on PC. I just can't convince myself to buy a Wii U. Or any console for that matter.

    Literally the only reason I would buy a Wii U is for Nintendo first party exclusives. It's like. Nintendo makes great games... on a system I can't tolerate for numerous reasons.

    Between this, Smash U, MK8, X, and MH3U/MH4 I just might cave and buy a Wii U at some point :lol:

    Open world is interesting. Hopefully they took note of the various complaints with Skyward Sword and are addressing them. The art looks pretty good... I adore TP's art style and would love to see them do a more adult LoZ again at some point, but this is good in its own way.

    Shigeru Miyamoto is currently being interviewed at the Nintendo Treehouse at E3, for those interested. Let's see what he announces!

    I think we need to stop for a minute, and start discussing the real important matters. Let's get right to the heart of the issue. Can we cut all that grass?

    I surely do hope that Hyrule's favorite gardener is allowed to trim and pull all the evil weeds of his world, and keep all the riches while he's at it. *ka-ching $$$*

    EDIT: Hyrule Warriors gameplay streaming now at Nintendo Treehouse.

    That thing with the Great Fairy was almost as brutal as Godzilla's 'fatality' scene. :lol:

    The moon will haunt me more than the MM one.
