Yup, old game that no one likes without Nostalgia Glasses on being released for the umpteenth time, and would be bought anyway even if there wasn't graphical updates. One game on the N64 has probably made more money then some companies make on entire franchises, and all because people are too happy to buy it 10 fucking times.

No thanks, I'll just take my generic yearly Call of Duty game...

Zelda is a rerelease of a game that gets by solely on the Nintendo fanbase, which is mostly like a Jack Russel with a maggoty bone. It doesn't care that that bone isn't as good as it used to be, it will stay in denial and violently defend it no matter what.

Seriously, I've never seen a fan base as ravenous and retarded as Nintendo .__. theres being a dedicated fan, and then theres being a fanboy, and then theres being a loyalist with shrapnel lodged in your brain, and THEN theres being a Nintendo fanboy.

You forgot Duke Nukem Forever and Zelda OOT 3D.
I was too young and un-rebellious to ever get into Duke Nukem. Also, I don't have a 3DS and I'm not going to get it because there's no guarantee it'll work on my 20/200 prescription eyes. No other 3D works.

Plus Majora's Mask is a better Zelda game than Ocarina of Time.

What a bad move. That's right. Let's take a game about the heroic exploits of one young man who will never, ever  get laid and make it about everyone. What could possibly go wrong?

I dunno, it could possibly work.

The only problem is that they would have to put it on the Wii or Wii2.

I think having to pay Tingle and obscene amount of rupees in Wind Waker did not help his popularity.

Also, another dubious move by the 3DS apparently.

The Witcher 2 is promising, but damn, they didn't hold back on the difficulty.

From what I've read once you get past the prologue chapter(s) it actually gets easier.

I've only just started chapter 1, but so far that's at least mostly true. I do like that shield-bearing enemies are actually tough, but ... damn! Without potions and magic, the witcher would barely be better than these guys. Which is the point. So it's good!

Witcher's are supposed to be faster, stronger, and tougher than your average human, potions are usually for unfair numbers. Down some Blizzard and chop 'em up.

Still, I can only cross my fingers for an Xbox 360 version.

Ya know what I miss? Games with unique worlds. I'm not talking fantasy, where everything is just a dressed up version of elves and mages, I mean real uniqueness. I'd say Morrowind, but that ones not totally out of the woods... more like anything by Oddworld, and Xeno Clash. Ya never see games these days with lore, environments and design that you haven't already seen at least twice in the last year.

Classic Game Room HD - ZENO CLASH: ULTIMATE EDITION for Xbox 360 review

Seriously, look at that, man :/ I'll eat up majority of the generic yearly crap they serve up (I'm pretty easy to please mostly) but sometimes I want something like that.

Guna grab Outcast once my new laptop gets fixed. Sounds exactly what I need.

Definitely - and they are. But they're not like jedi knights who can take on entire armies on their own. Enemies come in a few different flavors, but one-on-one none of them are especially tough unless you mess up. In groups, however, the ones with shields can be a nightmare. I find the best way to do it is kill the light ones first, then use signs to stun the shield-bearing enemies and kill them, then kill the hard-hitting enemies without shields. That goes for the guard-type humans encountered in the prologue, anyway.

Also, drinking Cat potions turns the world black-and-white, lets you see in darkness, makes you listen to your own heartbeat for five minutes .. and lets you see enemies' circulatory system. I can't remember if it did all of that in the first game, but it's awesome either way.

I'm loving the game so far. I just ... I'm going to play some L. A. Noire now. Which is also cool.

You're dangerously close to confusing "unique" with "zany" there, I'm just saying. Having mushrooms for houses and giant insects for transportation in a land of volcanoes and gray people ( Morrowind being the one I'm most familiar with ) isn't necessarily more original than anything else. Anyone could take a generic high fantasy setting and substitute "DRAGONS" with "MUSHROOMS WITH BEAKS AND TENTACLES", but that wouldn't really make it any more creative, you know?

Creative comes more from the twist on the norm than from the weird.

Fallout 3 is an example. D.C. Okay.
D.C. that looks like it never emerged from the 50s but has lasers and robots. Better.
D.C. with all that retro-futurism that's been nuked and looks more like a WWI battlefield than a capital. Unique setting!

Um... Okie-dokie.

Greater Las Vegas area. OK.
Add in some retro-futurism and reduce the majority of it to a hostile desert. Better.
The have a over-extended want-to-be democracy and some psudo-roman legion, and a mysterious powerful, enigmatic figure all duke it out for control of the area. Unique setting!
Then you get ambushed by a random amount of cazadors/giant radscorpions/deathclaws. F***!
