Not get what? This looks fantastic!

Do it, Patrick! Answer the siren's call!

You know what? This looks all right. And it comes out a day before my birthday...I might finally try a dynasty warriors style game.

Someone help me if I end up getting a Wii U for this.

Nintendo, you got Fi, now put Navi in there and you have my $60!

Huh, I didn't even notice. Good on them, I guess?

Now I'm hoping the Link in the short teaser for the next Zelda is actually a girl too, instead of incredibly effeminate. Just because I want them to throw as many traditions out the window as possible.

This and Bayonetta 2 makes the Wii U look far more interesting than its two competitors at the moment.

'Properly Wasting' - Well done @patrickklepek this is now up there with my favorite trailer titles on GB. :D

Dynasty Warrior games always pull the one-two punch of looking sort of cool and then you play it and it's hot garbage. It's easy to think a 2 minute video showcasing different moves looks fun, but when that's all you do for hours and hours on end, mashing the same buttons against the same brainless enemies AHHHHHH IT'S A NEVERENDING HELL CYCLE

You ARE the sword.

I'm still a bit bewildered by this game. Are people pumped? Should I be pumped?!

@xbob42: To be fair, you just described all video games.

I really want that scarf.

Posted by Eribuster

Ah, those spins. I remember those.

The constant rupee sounds might become extremely problematic in this game.

"At the moment" is the key phrase here. It is a darn shame about Bayonetta though.

Out of all the awesome Hyrule Warriors trailers that came out after E3, this is the one that gets posted on the site? :D

Oh I guess the Impa trailer was posted, too. Just skipped Midna, Agitha and Lana's trailers...

And then you remember this isn't Dynasty Warriors but Hyrule Warriors with different gameplay elements (find areas with chests that have special items, fight bosses with Zelda-typical puzzle-y weaknesses) thrown into the mix and way more approachable characters/universe and you got something that looks way more interesting than your bog-standard Dynasty Warriors game.

How is this possible? Isn't she like a digital being that lives in the sword? Does she even have a physical form?

Posted by Brad3000

@xbob42: Speak for yourself bob. There are a lot of us that like the Warriors games. They went through kind of a long slog of mediocre versions in the PS3/360 era, but DW2/3/4 and Samurai Warriors were great. And DW8 is back to being pretty great. There is massive amounts of loot, tons of characters to unlock, a huge number of different play modes... I think if you're not having fun with DW8, you're just playing the wrong character on the wrong difficulty.

Posted by Brad3000

@def: If you think that finding chests with special items is in any way different from any other warriors game you are sadly mistaken. One of the biggest driving forces behind these games is the massive loot grind. I've played Hyrule Warriors at E3 and it is totally just another Warriors game with a Zelda coat of paint. I'm fine with that. I love the Warriors games. You know who doesn't love the warriors games? People who have never played one but watched a kinda-shitty quick-look and think they know what they are about. (Ok, and lots of other people too, but still...)

Anyway, I hope that if you play and like HW you'll give some of the other warriors games a chance. Though, as they are pretty similar, you might want to give it some space :)

(I didn't finish Skyward Sword but) It's possible because it's not canon. So far the game mashes up characters from OoT, MM, TP and SS.

Dynasty Warriors games dogg, they have tons of nonsensical things that don't technically make sense.

More specifically, it's a crossover between a bunch of different Zelda games and they're having fun with the characters, so they can do a bunch of things that don't necessarily "make sense," like Agitha being able to summon giant spectral insects to take out swaths of enemies.

I... actually kinda want a Wii U these days.

Klip Klop posted it, and he said he liked the game at E3.

Ain't nobody on the Giant Bomb staff that likes Smash Brothers.

Jeff gave Brawl a four-star review, dude. That's pretty positive.

He's a reviewer capable of being objective. Smash Brothers is not his thing, and he has said as much.

No reviewer is perfectly objective. A reviewer can strive for objectivity, but there will always come a point were personal preferences weigh against the inherent qualities of whatever they're reviewing. That's why, for example, I would never personally trust a Jeff-written review of a Dynasty Warriors game.

@hailinel: Maybe that's why it was 4 stars instead of 5 then. :P

This game is so divisive in the community...its the devils own bargain . That's why I like it!

Give into your desires, Patrick. Look deep in yourself, you know it to be true.

Lu Bu is here, as is Cao Cao and Yu Jin and Xu Shiu and all your new friends. Join them, and never be alone again.

Mwa ha ha ha ha ha!

Suddenly, that copy of Dynasty Warriors that I downloaded on my PS4 is calling my name again.

Loss of cool points eminent.

1. No, he's going to gain more cool points!
2. I think you're looking for the word "imminent".

I know everyone is rushing to Game City for their special edition preorders but you should all be aware that chest only has like 5 rupees in it.

Posted by BonOrbitz

I know Dynasty Warriors gets a lot of shit, but I think I'll get this. The more I see of it, the better the impression it leaves on me.

Posted by Hef

I still don't see the appeal of these types of games

Posted by Chrystolis

This is the first one of the preview vids I've watched and really noticed the framerate slowdown hitting. I know there's visually a lot going on in these games, but I really wish they'd knock that aspect out for once.

Oh, you mean the worst Zelda character in existence that took a tolerable game and made it unbearable? Awesome.

I hope she has dialogue like "There is a 95% chance you're all about to die."

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

If that special edition with the chest came out here I'd totally buy it against my better judgement
