I have to agree with you. Though we can't stereotype the entire audience that will end up watching, we can certainly say VGX is targeting a rather specific demographic, and to show Smash Bros. or a realistic-looking Zelda would be a great way to get Nintendo some attention. I just came here after watching a rather nice video on IGN about the state of the Wii U, and the comments section was full of opinions along the lines of "The new Mario game may have gotten good reviews, but I'm not 12 anymore." THIS is EXACTLY how most gamers feel about the Wii And Wii U, but there are certain titles that retain that broad appeal - Zelda and Smash are definitely two of them.

I took it as its going to be a live appearance as opposed to it being a recorded segment

and that's exactly why they're immature, a real mature person will be itself regardless of the age. tastes have nothing to do with age or maturity.

Honestly much like we do with every Nintendo Direct, I think we're just going to build up our expectations too much only to be let down. I'd love nothing more than to see a Zelda U trailer, but it probably is just going to be a new DK trailer or at a push, MK8 or Smash Bros (which would be neat in itself)

I really don't know what to expect. It may seem obvious to some what Nintendo "should" do, but Nintendo, for better or worse, is not so predictable in circumstances like this. Whether they're being experimental or simply disconnected from a particular audience (or both), Nintendo has often done things contrary to what others were expecting. Unfortunately, in the last couple years in particular, they seem to have been on a bad streak in terms of setting and meeting proper expectations.

I think you'll find that you're remarkably far off base with this prediction. Nintendo isn't going to degrade one of its flagship series to a generic washed-out brown gritty reboot of Zelda just to sell the Wii U to dudebros.

I do feel this would be a grave error on Nintendo's part. Sure, they could make Zelda a little grittier (Twilight Princess at most) but they've already learned that people who want the grittier stuff also just want what other people think is "cool" (e.g shooters, sandbox games, knack...lol). Nintendo has stuck to their element, and it's very unlikely they'll deviate too far to cater to people who'd whine and never buy Nintendo stuff anyway.

If they listened to everyone's "advice" all we'd be seeing is The Legend of Modern Warfare and MariOS.

Right. Even if you shaved Link's head, gave him a goatee, and made him perpetually scowling, the Call of Duty crowd still isn't going to buy the game if he doesn't have a gun or isn't dragonborn.

that second part isn't hard to achieve in a Zelda game that is, if dragonborn is what I think it is.....

Untitled I think I know what you mean. Just make Big Bird spit fire. Cause if all else fails, use fire.
Seriously, I'd love another Zelda in the line of Twilight Princess like the tech demo of 2011. But don't overdo it for dudebros, please.

You guys do realize that Skyrim is part of a larger game series... right? While the game did have massive popularity, so did Oblivion and Morrowind. It's because they set you in a mystical region to explore. People should really stop talking down on the series. It's actually really good if you take the time to sit and explore and learn about Tamriel's lore.

It looks like it. Rather odd if you ask me.

"Not recorded" means that his appearance is not a video. He's gonna make a live appearance

Actually, im right guaranteed. I'm saying a more mature Zelda, I meant an Ocarina of Time/Twilight Princess esque mature. Its going to be very real looking

"Real looking?" When has Zelda or any of its producers ever aspired to create a "real looking" game. A dark tone and dull colors do not equal realism.

Everyone else makes a Cranky Kong announcement sound terrible, but I think I'd actually enjoy it if the presentation is like so.

"Good. Everyone's together. Pyrrhon loves a party."
"...It's funny because marriage is terrible!"

I see it as the absolute best case scenario. Maybe Shiggy will dress up as Diddy and piggy back on Reggie too.
Sadly, we'll probably get something drab like screenshots of Zelda U, or more Smash footage.

I came here to say this. I think it's about time that they comment on it. Pokemon is also sure to be an attention grabber, especially if the game has a true "wow" factor. Now I'd personally like to hear about a new IP or something along the lines of Metroid or Starfox. Anything but stuff that's already announced. That's probably asking for too much though so I'll settle for some new trailers.
