    Mods, you might want to change this thread's title to something more official after seeing what's behind this link that won't work for some stupid reason...provided someone didn't already post it. But that seems unlikely, given that I checked the dates and stuff.

    The link is a little bit erratic, so if it doesn't work, check Nintendo.com for what I'm talking about.

    You can't POSSIBLY miss it. And if you do, I question your very ability to turn a computer on.

    If that one doesn't work, try this one, and press the Video button that best fits your connection.

    The movie takes a while to load, but it's MORE than worth it. If you don't already...

    YOU. WILL. BELIEVE.

    Oh, and the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Star Fox videos are drool-worthy, as well.

    Well... 'Yes', 'Whoa' and 'Bugger me' comes to mind.

    I must say, I am impressed.

    My thoughts exactly, Val. Been a while. How's it hangin'?

    As for me...this clip just gave me a reason for living again. Which is pretty sad when you think about it, but THAT KICKED ASS!!!!

    Damn, I really need a Gamecube.

    Another wayward soul comes to the Light Side! Rejoice o angels in heaven, rejoice, for the forces of good are victorious this day!

    At the end of their press conference yesterday, Nintendo unveiled the next Zelda game for Gamecube. Contrary to expectations, it wasn't in the style of WindWaker. Instead, they revealed a new, realistic Zelda. Imagine a massive army of Goblins marching to the backdrop of a red sunset, while a lone rider, Link, charges into their midst. Imagine fighting boar-mounted bokoblins from horseback. Imagine Link fighting a Balrog-like creature that can cause waves of flame to emanate from their body. And imagine all this set to the music from Conan the Barbarian, and you have a pretty good idea of what happened.

    Link.

    Meh.

    It looks pretty though. Will consider playing it if it comes out for the Xbox. :p

    Elfstar,

    Thanks very much!
    :)

    This looks like the coolest thing I've seen in the world of computer games since my flatmate bought an N64 the day after seeing Goldeneye on it...

    Interesting article from IGN: http://cube.ign.com/articles/513/513962p1.html?fromint=1

    Its not directed by Shigeru Miyamoto nor Eiji Aonuma. Makes me wonder who it is.

    For a man who believes Ocarina of Time is the greatest single-player quest ever created in the history of gaming (that would be me, and about 10 million other people) this is awesome.

    Now, for speculation.

    Anyone care to start?

    It looks like Hyrule as we knew it in Ocarina of Time. Link riding out of the Castle gates, and one of the shots looks a lot like the Forest Temple to me.

    My guess (and hope) is that it's a continuation of the OoT story. You pick up where you left off as Link, with some new baddie on the loose in Hyrule.

    Link must battle Ganon, because Zelda has been kidnapped.
    But first, he must retrieve half a dozen artefacts.
    Them he must complete his quest by retrieve several more sacred artefacts.
    Then Link vs. Ganon. Link wins. And Zelda is Rescued. And all is well. Until Next Time.

    Majora's Mask was the OoT sequel.
