    Anyone recognize THIS IMAGE http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/zelda/gallery/gal_09.jpg I seem to recall a tech demo that displayed that same room with similar effects (though they were much prettier back then) ;P

    no action figures

  • Lara Croft

    Is it me or does Link look more feminine in the game?

    • LordKaiser

      Links mostly looks like that, hence the female link cosplays.

      • Lara Croft

        Link was never what I would call manly, but he never looked this feminine. You could still easily make out he was a guy.

  • Mexreturns

    I may get a Wii U. I am thinking about getting the Mario Kart 8 bundle (the european bundle is better than the american one) but i dunno yet.

  • LordKaiser

    I’m undecided between a PS4 and a Wii U. I can’t have both at once.

    • Zackasaur

      I have and enjoy both, but I can very easily say that I would sooner give up my Wii U.

      Wii u first, second ps4 that will have more games at the end of the year.

      Depends on your current game demands/playstyle. Do you have a vita? If no, get that (maybe the borderlands bundle) and a WiiU first, the PS4 library is building up, by end of this year it would have a handful of games. You may also get some great discounts and bundle offers for the PS4 by then. You could also use ps+ to snag in some ps4 games before your purchase. If you already have a vita, you could just get a wiiU first since it has a very good library right now

      While I’m a much bigger fan of Sony, I also don’t personally see a reason to pick up a PS4 quite yet. A powerful new PC, my PS3 and a 3DS seem to be a killer combo, and since titles like Destiny, Tales of Vespiria and Persona 5 are all still coming out on the PS3, I really feel like I can stick it out until a PS4 “Slim” emerges… or at least some killer bundles.

      However, in addition to not wanting an energy inefficient console just yet (the PS4), you could also get a Wii U for cheaper right? Like WAY cheaper. Nintendo of America’s Online Store sells refurbished bundles for $200. https://store.nintendo.com/ng3/us/po/browse/productDetailColorSizePicker.jsp;jsessionid=72YJT2DpXvZWRgCy36y4YYNNlTnHy61qxTyvS2zXhJhjRLqSMmdv!352637202?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=0&atg.multisite.remap=false&productId=prod150200&categoryId=.

      Btw, that deal was supposed to be for a limited time only. I’ve been watching it NOT CHANGE since at least January.

      For $200, you get a console that’s pretty energy efficient and should have games that you enjoy. I mean, you wouldn’t be considering it if you didn’t like what it’s small, unsurprising library looked like, right?

      I’m holding off for a PS4 redesign myself. Though maybe I’ll pick up a Wii U refurbished once Sonic Boom comes out.

    • Anime10121

      I’ll vote Wii U IF all of the “planned for 2014″ games actually release this year (or if you’re a fan of Nintendo I.P.). If not, then get a PS4, as I assume by 2015 we’ll be seeing a lot of the big boys drop (MGSV, FFXV, Uncharted, though this is all my speculation on when they’ll release)!

    Omega Force always manages to make great screenshots of individual characters. But the actual gameplay always looks so bland. I wish that they did something about that.

    -Maybe change the way they create generic soldier models? Create a bunch of armor pieces and let the CPU randomize their look? Get Team Ninja to stop making DOA5 costumes for a few weeks and work on that :)

    -Give them better AI so they don’t spend quite so much time just standing there. It’s a battlefield. It should be more dynamic.

    -Heck, the battlefields are always so flat. Can’t they mix it up with some vertical elements? Or destructive elements, at least. Give me narrow canyon paths to fight on, so I can knock enemies off of ledges. Climb up towers so I can jump down on… like… war elephant-type things.

    At least they seem to have improved the lighting. That screenshot looks great. I also hope this sells well in Japan. I am kind of shocked at just how poorly Zelda games sell in Nintendo’s homeland.

      Zelda’s like Sonic. they never did well in Japan….
