Man, how could you double post? Don't you know t...

ooooooh. :D

very nice. I couldn't be more hyped at this point in time. Dare i say it? this is my most anticipated DS game at the moment.



SantaC - considering that the biggest DS games are 128MB so far (even games like FFIII, Revenant Wings, Lunar Knights etc.), 512 MB seems far-fetched, even for a proper 3D Zelda game.
I am pretty sure FF3 is 256MB, or am I wrong?

...and have to admit that while initially skeptical, I've come to love controlling Link via this new control scheme. Combat is fast and fluid, with Link connecting attacks between different enemies. The stylus also seems to be better suited for some moves, like picking up and tossing objects.

Screenshots and online videos don't do the game justice. See it running live on the tiny DS screens, and you may have to look twice to convince yourself that this is a DS game.
Man this will be one long wait...dammit.

Nah, accepted means they ran your credit card to check it was vaild because they're preparing to ship it. It will say pre-order/back order before that point usually.

I think they're shipping the first batch on Friday. Here's praying overnight express gets here this Saturday.

I could not wait any longer and preordered it also... It was the best choice, I guess. The demo is not for download but to play at the retailer so I would never get my hands on that. And perhaps this Zelda will be the most challanging for me, because I hardly can read and write Japanese.

My order at play-asia reads: Preparing Order.
I just hope to get the game as soon as possible...

For what it is (a pet simulator), Nintendogs is like the Super Mario 64 of that genre (I mean you can even call out the damn dogs name and it'll respond), so that score doesn't bother me. Nintendogs is most definitely not my thing, but by and large Nintendogs got very high reviews by the North American press too.

Anyways, really looking forward to this Zelda game. No offense to the traditionalists, but I am looking forward to a Zelda game that plays in a different way. It's been almost 10 years since OoT anyways.

WW got a 40. So I think I'll wait to see some a more semi-credible source review it.
