I can only imagine the failure rates for the Wii U.

Why don't PC's have high failure rates when they're much more powerful than an Xbox 360 and PS3?

You can say that about all video games.

I agree.

Why use loads of polygons etc. anyway when you can use "tricks" to create the same effect. It's all about effective use of the medium. I still want cell-shaded though.

Well yeah, what I meant was it'd be really obvious how low-poly most of the stuff is. Kinda like this.

The advantage of more polys = more stuff. More enemies, more trees, more grass, or w/e you want. Not necessarily all the extra polys have to go on one object.

I want a less dark style, most HD games have dark tones, but the world is made up of colors lots of bright colors (then again it could be because of the town I live in that I believe the world has colors....)

Are those graphics even possible with current PC's?

Hell yeah is quite possible, but still the DEMO looks very impressive and had to get in mind, that we are watching this picture throw a pc not in a hd tv with the console in they full specs.

It's called Skyrim. Kaboom.

Skyrim has good graphics, but still not quite good as they should, all the characters looks like robots...like "video game characters"...

How about this: Oot style with TP realism

All the comments I see are either "TP was too dark or Wind Waker was too light"

Compromise!

What ever they choose but very very detailed.

Gents, these graphics are still not on par with PC ones, these are similar to Skyrim at medium detail or The Witcher 2 at minimum detail, the difference is that a PC would be able to render not one but many spiders like that at the same time.

Your point? Game consoles have always been inferior to PC's. That's because console manufacturers use low-end tech so the console is affordable. The PS3 was an exception, but even that got eclipsed by PC's in just a couple years. Also, consoles use standardized tech so developers don't have to worry about tailoring their games for different hardware configurations.

Which reminds me some important PC feature, they are scalable, as well as PC games. Why consoles are not is a mistery, lets say increasing the memory of a PS3 and run a game with better detailed textures, or will less "loading" situations, add another CPU and run a game with twice the number of polys or enable multitask so you can be downloading "WiiUware" while playing any game, etc.

I'd quite like an art style that's more in line with Wind Waker's promotional images with the thick, uneven black outlines. Unlikely I know.

NEVER mention the CD-i disasters. They even spelled rupees wrong.

I wouldn't mind Gwonam being canonised in the series proper.

Anything but Skyward Sword. That is one of the ugliest games I've ever played. A real disappointment in every sense of the word.
