I really wonder why there was so much negativity to Wind Waker when it first came out, if it was to due with the visuals I can't imagine why. I love them.

I have to assume people were more interested in a more realistic style instead. Of course once we consistently got video games that actually tried to be realistic, many people realized "OH GOD WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!". I assume

Yeah I remember when I first saw the trailer I was like WTF NINTENDO WHAT DID YOU DO?! ARE YOU CRAZY!!!! I bought it anyway and after 2 seconds my mouth fell open because of the amazing style and graphics. Ever since I shut my mouth when I see a trailer lol.

Just finished Wind Waker last night. I never played the original when it came out on GC (while I had a Gamecube, I think I was at a point in my life where gaming took a backseat and it kind of makes me sad based on how much fans loved the system). I thought it was a fun game. To be perfectly honest I was a little hesitant at first. The story and art style had me a little nervous. But overall I enjoyed both of them.

I am the type of person who doesn't realize how much he enjoyed a game until a few month after the fact when I am minding my own business and out of nowhere the soundtrack starts playing in my head and a flood of emotions comes roaring back. I have no doubt that this will happen and I will hear Dragon Roost, Offset Island, Windfall, the Forest Haven, or the Great Sea music in my head and I will remember how much fun I had with it. Decent soundtrack overall.

If I had to pick one thing I didn't like it was the last battle where Zelda and I were supposed to work together. I swear that chick couldn't shoot a bow if her life (in this case mine) depended on it. But having slept on it, I am not as frustrated by it as I was.

finally started playing this game.. loving it so far
but that's no surprise, really.... it's zelda =)

has anyone else been experience lag when throwing bombs though?

  • im just a few hours in, but... there have been a few moments (+every bomb-throwing moment) when lag appears, that's quite annoying

i'm the first person to tell you that all that matters is gameplay (+story in singleplayer games), etc.... and i really don't care about graphics....
i don't care if the Wii U has worse hardware than the competition, none of that matters to me

but i'm also the first person that complains when there's lag.... there is absolutely NOTHING worse than lag in video games
if it only happens every now and then in single player games... i guess i don't mind, but i hope there will be absolutely NO lag in Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8
i just can't stand lag in online multiplayer games (because i've always played RTS PC-games... and even the tiniest amount of lag can be the reason for losing)
so... im a little concerned

  • the Tingle Bottle feature (miiverse posts in a bottle) is absolutely pointless.........

ok... now that i've almost finished this game, i'd like to add a few things..

like i said.. i don't really care for hardware... these arguments are pointless
when it comes to single player games.. i just want great gameplay, a great story, etc.... i don't care about graphics

when it comes to multiplayer games... i care about gameplay, balance, competition, online-modes, online-features, the community, etc + the game needs to run absolutely smoothly
i can't stand lag in multiplayer games, it's the worst.
if there is lag in single player games (from time to time), i don't really care... it happens, but it doesn't affect my ability to play and enjoy the game

BUT... the lag i'm encountering in Wind Waker HD is pretty terrible.
At first i only had lag whenever i was throwing a bomb.. which is already annoying and unacceptable, but as you get further in the game.. the lag increases
whenever a pillar crumbles.. whenever you're out on the sea and enemies fire cannonballs at you, etc.

i trust nintendo completely (except when it comes to online multiplayer + online-features), their games run smoothly 99% of the time and i really don't have to worry about all the hardware-discussions, etc.
they develop the greatest games for their own home consoles/handhelds.. thus they run absolutely beautifully

but now i am REALLY concered....
and i'm not just talking about their online-services, online multiplayer games (Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8) + the balance in SSB

im talking about the likeliness of lag in those games.. + possibly low FPS
also... the new Pokemon games X/Y were advertised as 3DS games (even though only the battles are in 3D), but the FPS in 3D-mode is pretty terrible... and the lag in Wind Waker HD is also unbearable

im actually beginning to worry about their next single player games, Zelda for example..
they'll run into certain limitations with their current hardware, i'm already experiencing more lag in the current games than i have in all the older Nintendo games combined

i now HIGHLY doubt that the next Zelda will look anything like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_fyOkrteqM
if it did.. it would probably be unplayable due to 10fps and constant lag

Stop over thinking all of this. Sure Pokemon sucked but i've yet to hear anyone else complain about Wind Waker. This might have to do more with the fact it seemed rushed and it was a hd port then anything. I'm not worried in the slightest for the next Zelda and it will run most likely 60fps! Mario 3d World is a good example of how smooth a game can run from the ground up on the hardware.

Some people can get games broken from the store it's not the developers fault all the time. The Wind Waker is amazing, and
I haven't experienced any lag in it nor in Pokémon X, and Y.

the only time i experienced lag was when the game first came out and ppl were spamming tingle bottles all around WindFall and every time I sailed towards Windfall the FPS would dip due to my slow internet trying to load all the tingle bottles at the same speed that the game was running no i am not s@@ting you, so I chose to not recieve tingle bottles and haven't had lag since~!

First Zelda game I have bought and beaten. Now I see why everyone seems to be a Zelda fan. I plan to try to get all the heart pieces this time around on the second quest, but that might be hard with school coming around.

Also, I did notice FPS problems within the game. They were never for particularly long periods of time, but they are there. One instance that I clearly remember was during the Gohma boss fight. That lagged a bit. There were other times as well, but I can't remember specifically.

Just picked up Wind Waker today. Just wondering what the average completion time for this game is. How many hours did everyone log who completed it?

It's not too long if you dedicate yourself to simply beating the game. But there's a lot of things you can do in between.

Meowph, that's right!

It took me about 42 hours, but I was playing pretty slowly.

So I recently beat the Dragon Roost Island and then I went back to the previous island to get the Swift Sail and do other things, now I'm just exploring, but everytime I leave the 3 block area on the map the boat stops and says I can't go that way yet and turns around and heads back to the Dragon island. It won't even let me go south where it was said that the next island is. Is there still something I need to do at Dragon Island or do I need to do something else?
