I don't understand why people refuse to have this discussion. It's not like therearen't improvements that make the Wii U version superior, but you gotta admit:

Admit that the Wii U Version looks better, and that comparing screenshots is pointless.

The only way you will know how much better, from lighting, shader techniques, smooth framerate, better loading, all technical aspects are better on the HD remake. You cannot compare screenshots you just have to see it side by side, and if people are freaking out over the bloom, then you haven't played WWHD on WiiU

I do think the game looks better running than some of the pictures might suggest, but even then I still prefer the remake. The Dolphin version just polishes up the textures a bit while the remake completely overhauls it and makes it look even more amazing. Everyone has their own opinion though, I just don't see why people prefer the original.

Watching the amazing draw distance of the emulator and then looking at the blur and bloom shaders of the Wii U version makes me sad.

It could have looked so much better :_(

As a generally graphics oriented PC gamer, I don't understand people's gripes with bloom... ESPECIALLY with Wind Waker. The aliasing on WWHD is amazing compared to the Dolphin Emu version, the bloom enhances the color and makes it pop in my opinion. I've heard people complain the colors are not as rich now but I didn't like the darker colors it doesn't fit the style as much as the bloom does. I can get behind complaining about bloom on Elder Scrolls Oblivion, because that was bad, but Wind Waker? fo' real?

It's the excessive bloom. It kills the game's cartoon feel and makes all 3D models look like they're made out of clay. One of the things I loved about the original's style was the high contrast.

I insist: It would have looked tons better if it wasn't so excessive. Just look at the picture in the begging of the page and tell me it's not better.

The aliasing is bad in the Dolphin image in my opinion it looks much worse, you can see the jaggedness in the lines. Bloom is soft light which objectively makes things more attractive, that's why they use bloom like effects and soft light filters in other games and movies to make people and characters look better.

Bloom... Deal with it.

The dolphin emulator looks like fecal matter compared to the more superior WiiU remaster

@Norik it just doesn't seem like you have actually played WW HD on Wii U. I think your opinion would be a lot different.

I don't think people should buy a Wii U if they don't like the way WWHD looks considering so many of them have a similar bloom and haze.

I don't have an issue with any of those games, I'm just bothered by how different WW looks in particular. They tried to fix something that wasn't broken. MK looks like it needs some AA though...

Whatever, I know I'll end up buying it anyways lol

I'm not sure if this has been asked aleady, but I want ask this.
When you go to Windfall island when Mila and her dad are poor, Mila has a job at the flag stall. The side quest with this is to catch Mila in the act of tampering with the safe during the night hours.
After completing this, during daylight hours Mila says she has an evening job on another island, and her dad says says Mila sneaks out at night.
I would asume this is a hint at another side quest involving Mila, but I just can't find her. I've also looked around on places like youtube and googled for answers, yet I can't find anything or anybody that knows where Mila works during the night hours.
Basicly, has anybody found Mila working the night, or is it something we're never ment to find out?

I just beat The Wind Waker for the first time ever today. I had it on GCN when I was younger but never got around to beating it and I decided to get WW HD and I have loved it.
Now I have a question. Is Phantom Hourglass supposed to be a direct sequel to The Wind Waker and Spirit Tracks, Hourglass's direct sequel?
Or are they all seperate Links?

Phantom Hourglass is a sequel to Wind Waker and Spirit Tracks happens years after the other 2 games.
