It's funny you should mention them choosing Wind Waker for a HD remake over other Zelda titles. Here is a portion of an interview with Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma that recently came out about Toon Link being more accepted this time around:

Haha yea I forgot about that one. That was definitely one of the better ones. I also agree that it was interesting to see all this self proclaimed Kubrick experts have vastly different views of similar scenes.

Oh I agree and understand completely. I know about his obsession and have heard the stories of how he'd call king at 3am and ask him random questions like "do you believe in God?" Just to get a better understanding and to get the perfect shot for a single scene. It is also explained ad nauseam in th...

Kubrick also had crew go around the country and take pictures and get research of hotel decor from around the country because he wanted the hotel decor to look very generic and familiar to people. That kind of puts a wrench in all of the decor theories that people have...

I was really excited for this when it first came out and was let down. It does make some interesting points, but a lot of it was just reaching too far. Some of their arguments could be easily explained that the shot simply looked better that way. It seemed like most of the people seemed just to thro...

This isn't his first time being awkward in the booth either. He was at a Tigers game about a year or two ago and, just like last night, you could tell he didn't want to be there. When they asked him about the Tigers, he basically admitted that he doesn't follow baseball at all and it completely dera...

Possibly. Could be a good fit considering amendola's injury history and what they lost in the slot from last year. But if pats fans were annoyed with Welker's drops, they won't be happy with Early. For comparison to the stat I referenced earlier, I'm pretty sure Welker was 3rd or 4th on the list for...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Early Doucet- Free Agent - XequalsWhy on 7/31/13 at 12:37 pm|
It's because of his drops. He dropped something like 25% of the catchable balls he was targeted, which I think led the league among wr with at least 30 targets. This, along with injuries, made his performances extremely inconsistent. He's got the talent to end up somewhere still though...

Does anyone think that Camby signing with the Rockets affects Miami's drive to get Oden?

Obviously they could've just been puttin...

Is anyone else a little worried that they would hold back some things that should be included in the game from the start just to make them only attainable through gamer scores?
I guess in reality this is no different than unlocking characters and maps by completing the game like games used to do...

Yeah when you throw a split finger you have to set it in your hand before you get the signs every time because it is easy to switch to other grips. If he didn't then the batters would know when the split was coming because he would be digging in his glove before he threw it.

Long time lurker but felt compelled to respond. If you are looking for a fun yet complex game that's easy to pick up, I highly recommend The Resistance. The rules are simple but it is so player focused that the game feels different every time you play.
