I want this game so bad.

I want this game... in HD.

@msavo: It doesn't really make a difference whether it's HD or not. That won't make it a better game...

@krabboss I'm not saying the actual gameplay would be better in HD. It's just every time I play a game like Mario Galaxy even though I am having fun in the back of my head I'm saying , "Fuck this would look incredible if it was in HD."

Lets all give Link a hand!

I was hoping "Magma Hands" would be a weapon. It's disappointing to see it's just an enemy. Also I think these trailers aren't very good. They aren't exciting, they aren't enticing, and they have a dangerous tendency to bore me.

While I don't know if the game itself will be bad, I will say that I think Nintendo is out of their depth here and has no idea how to make a lot of promotional material for a game.

I think it would make it a better game. Graphics are certainly not everything, but they can greatly enhance a game experience.

Maybe for the first hour. I doubt you will be thinking graphics when you're several hours into the game. Eyes will adjust and acclimate to a foreign visual style (as long as it isn't god-awful), and the visuals in this game are not bad at all.

Dang Nintendo, wanna save a LITTLE surprise?

These aren't meant to be trailers. These are just snippets of the different areas of the game that nintendo has been showing off every thursday. The actual trailers have music and a more general trailer feel to it.

@SirShandy: You can do pure informational videos well though. For instance you can narrate over it explaining your design decisions. Or you can have the clips be a tad longer and cut back to a designer explaining the stuff that's going on on screen instead of just letting it play out.

A little care and thought can make a video both informative and intriguing.

@upwarDBound: I don't disagree that graphics are important, but these visuals have passed the threshold I think. If they were improved or were rendered in high definition they wouldn't enhance the game at all. It's already a gorgeous game.

HD resolution would improve pretty much any game not based on sprites. The blurriness is really annoying these days. Still, the game looks great!

25 years of adventuring and Link is still surprised when a boss door closes behind him.

The more I see of this, the less I want to play it. Admitting that is killing me inside, but it's true.

This looks fucking rad. It really does.

I've already unsubscribed to the official Zelda page on Facebook because of spoilers, please don't make me leave Giant Bomb for 19 days. There should be a way to filter out news.

This is the first time I've been trying to know as little as possible about a new Zelda game and it's not going very well...
