Is that meant to be a variation of Navi? (Literally) I swear that fairy also appeared in the Four Swords on GCN as well.
Suppose if it was the Master Sword, it'd mean there will be a bigger connection between the player and the weapon. It'd also mean more on the history of it, and more changes to it as a weapon (Different abilities, and the what not) - a key element if it wasn't enough in the previous titles

i still don't see why people diss l4d2 so much, i mean....yeah tf2 has given us alot of content, but if you exclude community content we've only gotten about 4 new maps (badlands, gold rush, badwater basin, pipeline), 4 arena maps (lumberyard, ravine, sawmill, nucleus), 18 new weapons (plus hats), and various tweaks here and there (achievements, inventory, ect).


meanwhile the l4d2 content totals in at about 25 new maps, 20 new weapons (the official word), new characters (with what sounds like a more developed full game story), new enemies (they added hdr lighting into hl2 after lost coast hit, and light bloom after ep1), new behaviors for old enemies (wandering witch, uncommon commons, ect), and advancements of the director....adds up to way more content than all the combined tf2 updates.  (We are getting at least one new full 5 map campaign for l4d1 in the comming months, btw)  If valve had waited until they finished the remaining character packs and meet the team videos to release the tf2 updates as "TF3" people would be bitching, regardless of whether it was pay to play or not (I think that's what's happening with the 360 tf2)



People complained about the hl2 episode packs being sold seperately, people complained about the orange box being a full price "game" made up of small "games", people complain about every single update valve ever does to tf2, but valve always...ALWAYS comes through for us.  I'm going to do what I've always done and just trust them on this.  They won't let me down.

Maybe it's just the '2' that hits a nerve with me. Subtitle would seem far more appropriate, but seeing as how everything is now sucking the cock-conforming sequential placement that is probably why.

It's said that the GCN of Twilight Princess is the canon copy. Which makes more sense, not only because Link is left-handed, but the WORLD is how it is SUPPOSED TO BE. IE, the sun rose on the correct side of the world.

I always hated that flip. One, I'm left handed, but it still doesn't change the fact that I hold a controller just like EVERYBODY ELSE. I move with characters with my left hand and do the actions with my right, but just because I'm swinging with my right hand doesn't mean I'd see him swinging with his left and freak out about it. I'd honestly prefer it because it's how it's supposed to look. It's no more accurate than doing a little waggle with my wrist as Link does full over the head slices.

Regardless, I am really hoping they ... don't make him right-handed. That would be like making Mario mexican instead of italian. Awful.

Am I the only one who fails to see how anyone gives a shit about a fictional character being right handed or left?

It's more or less the fact that it's annoying that Nintendo would reverse an entire game from how it normally exists because they wanted to push a completely useless and tacked on feature. Sorry but the sun rising in the West is the dumbest shit ever. Not only that, but anywhere Hylian is written, it's all mirrored as well. It's pointless.

I'd rather the game just be a normal Zelda game, with a left handed link and correct world, as opposed to forcing motion sensor shit down our throats. But, from the sounds of it, they want they want the sword fighting to be more like the  "sword-play" from Wii Sports Resort.

Honestly, I wouldn't even care TOO much if Link was right handed for the game as long as they didn't flip the world again.



But as for other reasons why people care, aesthetics, man. People are used to things, and it's always been very clear and often said that Link is left-handed. To just go and change that, while, obviously isn't going to really have an effect on gameplay, still is annoying to LOOK at.

Link doesn't look that much older in the pic.

Miyamoto said that the game is not in the same era as TP.

And the fact that it is a Wii-only game, there shouldn't be much problems with the Wii version of the game (IE, they can't flip the game if there's nothing to flip, and the graphics should be better since it's not a GC port)

Yeah. While it's Wii only, that makes it incredibly disappointing that they'd change a character to push a feature that isn't that great. Especially if they DO want to make it more like a "REAL" sword slash with that new attachment, then they are basically giving a big "Fuck You" to all the left handed people. Because they forget that while we still hold a controller just how a right handed person would, if we were actually swinging a sword, we would not be doing it with our RIGHT hands. So it'll feel awkward and clunky doing so.

It's shit to put motion sensor things in games where they aren't needed. Archery? Okay cool that works. But doing the SWORD play? That's shit. Because we obviously can't control with our left hands AND swing with it too.

The only motion control with the sword was if you shook the controller. Otherwise you held the control stick for different kinds of attacks.

I know, I've played both versions of TP. But I'm talking about what's been said NOW is that he wants it to be more like the Wii Sports Resort Swordplay using the advanced motion attachment. Meaning the way you would swing would be JUST how he should swing in the game (if it's as good as they say it is). Now, that's just what's said, who knows if they know enough to actually DO that. But if they do, for anybody who is left handed who is trying to swing, sure, it's possible, but it'll most likely be a lot of sloppy ugly looking slicing.

It'll be a sword that not only has a mouth, but it must use it to SING!

They might have an option for left handers or something. Theres some games that allow that sort of thing.

Pff, if they did that it would probably just flip the world again.  I'd rather have a sun that rises in the east than a lefty Link.

No, not really. Flipping the world was done because (presumably) about two people were working on the Wii port and that was the simplest change they could make.

But it's not that hard to design some flexibility into the control scheme when you're going from the ground up.
