@irken: i thought he said he was gonna hang around YouTube for a while the last time he exploded in a thread because he wasn't feeling appreciated enough here on the NL forums... I could be wrong, though.

I actually loved the Temple and having to get around the phantoms, especially because almost every time you go back to it, there's new shortcuts accessible in order to save time, and then being able to write notes on your map was probably the best feature they've ever put into a Zelda game ever. That was probably the most enjoyable Zelda temple I've played through in a long time, and I liked the ending, too (though the final series of boss battles was pretty easy IMO).

I don't have many games that have online capability anyway... i prefer local multiplayer or single player gaming action. I don't like having to depend on someone else's connection and willingness to not shut off their machine if they're losing in order for me to have fun. :3

@Kid_A: drawing skill doesn't matter with that game... for me, the problem was that it was flat-out boring. There is no freedom as to what you may or may not design yourself -- you literally walk into some levels and are thrust repeatedly into designing platforms or elements when you just want to play the darn level already. Also, certain things I thought would be most fun (i think i remember a submarine and/or an airplane or a rocket on that list) turned out to be the most annoying because they had an enforced shape that could not be altered (i couldn't make the submarine into an octopus, for example).

Of course not. We don't know how anything went down. Maybe he wasn't supposed to post those pics but didn't know. Maybe it was just yet another leak. Who knows. Who cares. But the point is that the artists working on the game weren't just told, "here are some disney characters. Have fun." No, they were working with explicit instructions to create steampunk, robot versions of Disney characters. You may not see these exact scenes in the game, but concept art is often used to get the style down.

and now we come back to my initial reply to you, wherein I refuted the allusion to the myth about the dude who commissioned the Taj Mahal mutilating his architects so that they could never create anything similar -- those designs were definitely put to use, whereas we may very well see nothing like these images in the upcoming game (provided it sees a release at all).

Seems the art leaked from freelance artists who had done work for Junction Point. They retain the rights to their own artwork, and decided to post it on their websites as part of their portfolio in conjunction with their resumés in order to promote themselves.

Oh well, you know these artistic types. This is exactly the reason why Shah Jahan killed or blinded all his architects and builders after they finished the Taj Mahal.

not so much, considering the designs for the Taj Mahal were actually used. The posted artwork could very well be of designs that were not/are not suitable for use in the game for whatever reason... that's pretty common among artists; rejected artwork is fair game for portfolio fodder.
