Giant Bomb has an obvious editorial bias against Nintendo.

#3 Posted by vikingdeath1 (1005 posts) -

they probably will not do one, it's a game that came out almost a decade ago and its big videogame release season. they are probably busy with games that people don't already know are great.

the HD version is pretty great though.

Alex's been playing it, try tweeting at him?

#5 Posted by slyspider (1366 posts) -

The guys cover what they want to cover. I don't know if any of them care about this game.

#6 Posted by RenegadeDoppelganger (418 posts) -

Alex said basically all that need's to be said about that game in this weeks Bombin': It's Wind Waker, it's pretty and that game still holds up.

#7 Posted by MEATBALL (3475 posts) -

To be fair, the game hasn't even seen physical release yet. I'm sure we'll get a quick look either this weekend or next week. It also wouldn't surprise me if Nintendo have some sort of embargo on long-form footage until October 4th (though I'm unsure on how that stuff works with the game available to purchase digitally already).

Wouldn't be surprised to see a review from Alex soon enough.

I'd really like them to do it if only to hear them talking about the world when Wind Waker was first announced and released (always an interesting time to reflect on, as Alex and Scoops pointed out, given the direction of the series afterward). Also, I don't and likely never will own a Wii U so my chances of seeing this game unless the Bombcrew does something with it are effectively nil.

It's No Content Wednesdays: Three Guys in an Office, the follow up to the canceled hit show No Content Mondays: They're still getting used to the Office.

Brad may do one after that Kingdom Hearts HD QL

I really hope they do one, when they are allowed to / remember the game exists / find where they put the Wii U.

I'm really interested to see how the Zelda game I keep wanting to call the best Zelda game-- even based purely on what it represents for the series-- holds up when brought forward to a modern look and placed against modern grumpiness.

I mean, at the time it came out I only thought it was exciting and beautiful and cool and surprisingly possessed of the best story of any Zelda game. But nowadays, it's turned into even more than that, because it's now the last Zelda game with any kind of integrity.

(Before they started pandering to all those "edgy dark brooding tough extreem Legolas-looking Link in a game like Ocarina of Time over and over again forever" jerks who didn't realize what they were asking for and ruined everything.)

So yeah, I think a lot of people are super-curious to see that game-- and I think the staff will probably take that into account. I would hope.

Why does he keep saying THE Ocarina of Time? What the hell? Is that the official name? I'm sure it isn't the official name.

Also, how much better have these guys gotten on camera, huh?

#13 Posted by Darji (5293 posts) -

It will be probably shown if its out on retail. So far its only some pre order download bonus or?

Over the past summer I was looking for old GS videos and found a post from 2002 on some random forum talking about how the Gamespot guys were starting to do video. People were shocked to see Greg and Jeff's faces and didn't like them on camera at all. It's hilarious in hindsight seeing as GiantBomb is all about video content now.

A quick look could happen when the game has it's physical release.

The beginning of that game is really boring, I don't know if a Quick Look would be very good.

It isn't necessary

Oh, just imagine them trying to get through that early game stealth sequence on camera.

Not before he finishes his Final Fantasy IV DS review.

Oh, oh? Are you gonna sneak.....no, he's gonna spot you.
AAAGGHHH! That fucking spotlight man, it just came out of nowhere.
What'd I tell ya, Brad?
Sure looks like a barrel of fun. AWAOH!

According to the GB wiki, there is no The (except for The Legend of etc.) And thus, Jeff's mistakes from 10 years ago come back to lead to his eventual downfall.

And guys on camera... those old Brad videos support your claims. And holy shit, the days of 15 minute video reviews!

To be fair, everyone involved was a lot more awkward on camera in the early days.

@video_game_king: That seems accurate.

Yep. Maybe they could include a count-down clock. Time to Brad blaming the game for his own glaring mistakes. :P

That stealth sequence is kind of annoying though, even without cameras rolling.

It's my personal hope that we haven't gotten a Kingdom Hearts HD QL because it's being saved for a certain feature that may require much endurance - either that or a subscriber features, but mostly the former.

Patrick and Alex said they played it and loved it.

#29 Posted by McLargepants (394 posts) -

Alex said it holds up and looks great, and Nintendo made it very inconvenient for them to do Wii U quick looks with their account management and saves that are tied to the device. Although based on Twitter, Brad just got a Wii U, so who knows?

Wouldn't be much of a count-down though ^^

The Forbidden Fortress actually seems to have been tweaked a little bit so that you have a little more leeway with the guards. (y)

It's not inconvenient. They just can't use their home accounts. Surely they must have at least one Wii U in the office.

Dudes don't review video games anymore.

#34 Posted by McLargepants (394 posts) -

@hailinel: They surely do, but do you want to see a Quick Look of the opening 45 minutes of the game? That's what it would be if they do one on the office machine.

#35 Edited by AMyggen (3635 posts) -

@hailinel: Of course it's inconvenient if you want to use a save from home. The beginning of Wind Waker is the worst part of the game (which can be said for a lot of Nintendo games, really), so I sure don't hope they begin from the very start.

#36 Posted by Sammo21 (3543 posts) -

@ronnylee19881: Honestly, there will probably not be anytime and its not going to be enough of a traffic generator. Alex would probably be the one to do it and he's busy with other titles at the moment. Also, if you liked Wind Waker you'll like Wind Waker HD. That's basically it.

#37 Posted by Sammo21 (3543 posts) -

@amyggen: That's not true. The worst part of Wind Waker was always the triforce hunt. Nintendo always makes their 3D Zelda games 10-15 hours too long and the triforce hunt was another example of this. This is always why they truncated that portion of the game in the HD re-release.

#38 Posted by Zekhariah (695 posts) -

@ronnylee19881: Windwaker is probably a poor fit for the site's content schedule. I'd have trouble suggesting coverage of any of the Wii U related content running a website; doesn't really fit the covered categories or verge into a weird enough direction to be novel.

They did a Quick Look of Ocarina of Time 3D. A Wind Waker HD Quick Look would not be outside their norm.

#40 Posted by Zekhariah (695 posts) -

I would argue that the 3DS is in a bit of a different category than Wii U. Doing WW is still possible, but my guess would be an appearance on a more general show if it comes up.

Zelda is Zelda, and the Wii U is still a platform with games that people can and do buy.

So Brad mentoned a Quick Look incoming in the latest Bombcast. So, confirmed, I guess.
