I remember seeing it on the schedule yesterday but it's not anywhere on the site and it's not embedded in the review.

Did I imagine it being on the schedule or did it just not go up?

I had seen it too and have been wondering when it would post to the site. I haven't looked around on other sites, but I'm guessing there is some video embargo that's holding it up. I know Jason uploaded this image for it when it was on the schedule.

They might have pulled it temporarily because some other users found a backdoor to access and download the Quick Look before it was even on the schedule.

@hailinel: How can you pull it when it wasn't posted. I saw the quick look and you can still watch it if you know how. I just think they are waiting for a closer U.S. release date

You can pull it off of the schedule so it doesn't get posted, for one thing. They could also just pull the video offline if they felt it necessary.

I doubt it's video embargoed since Gamespot has a video review up. Unless that it's exempt under those circumstances or something.

If USGamer stream last night was an indication, Nintendo put a 30 minute restriction on video footage.

They likely pulled it down because there was a way to watch it through transposing a URL from one video to the QL.
It has Dan and Brad, and the split screen looks to run at about 10-15 frames less and renders at around 560p or something (garbage).

The split screen has always been garbage in Musou games. It never looks good and it never runs well.

@hailinel: @doctordonkey: Considering you can still do it if you know the url (which hasn't changed), and that particular method has been around since the days of the P4 ER I don't think they care

I watched it, it's over an hour long. I'm sure you won't have long to wait before they put it back up.

Yah, KOEI has always felt like they are a console behind with their engine/optimisation, and i'm not sure how much grunt the Wii U has.

I'm sure in the recent quicklook of orochi the draw distance was still ridiculously bad (unsuprisingly.)

Rorie's comment in the other thread would seem to indicate otherwise.

I already feel like I've had to wait too long [/whine]

Hopefully you're right, though.

Still embargoed I think. Can't post more than 30 minutes of footage.

But the game has been out for like two days? And I didn't even notice the QL was gone, I watched half of it but didn't really care about the game so stopped anyway.

Brad mentioned something about it in his Destiny stream on Monday(?) night. He mentioned it still being under embargo and then mentioned Thursday.

@vextroid: Others have already released video of the game, so it might be related to the Quick Look's length.

@vextroid: @hailinel: Yeah. I think Nintendo has their weird strict time restrictions on pre-release videos of this game, and the QL is significantly longer than what's allowed.

@hailinel: But they are unreasonable. Especially when you you take into consideration that the game has been released in Japan for about a month.

Nintendo's steaming video policies are hopelessly outdated. Reviews are out. No one outlet can run more than 30 minutes of video, but if you take them all in aggregate, and look up people using Twitch to stream imported copies or early copies of the NA version, there are hours and hours of Hyrule Warriors video footage available, so if Nintendo is afraid that streaming >30 minutes of video of a game will decrease sales, then they've already lost that one.

I can understand policies that ask sites to not stream like, the entire game front to back, or to not go past a certain story beat, but in the case of Hyrule Warriors, a game review site wouldn't do the former because it would be tedious, and the latter is unlikely to be an issue because it's a Musou game.

Not sure this is the reason as there's plenty of videos of a length over 30 minutes on YouTube. Jesse Cox has a 33- and a 39-minute video, and since he's based in America he could only have got access to the game from Nintendo themselves and thus be under the same embargo rules as everyone else.

Please don't let this thread devolve into needless bickering.

The policies are what they are. They're maybe a bit weird, but there's nothing here worth getting into a fight over.

A Musou game COULD have a good story, but this one is just a retread of previous Zelda games but more anime. There's literally 0 story beats that weren't already in a game that's been out for 3-16 years.

@bisonhero: Musou games do have stories. Quite long ones, at that.

To put it more clearly: no one who signed the terms of the embargo is allowed to show more than 30 minutes of gameplay. People can work around it though of course: don't sign the embargo agreement and rely on import copies of the game, get friendly with a local retailer to get a game early or broker a different deal with the publisher (and get "world exclusive" footage of the game).

So you're saying it's a Musou game.
