But this is the internet, home of short logic and dismissing Frenchman's waves.
Which Zelda are you referring to? And who is raising a shitstorm? Exaggerate much?
I don't have a problem with motion in moderation and done correctly, but Nintendo and the Wii as a whole has failed to prove in 4 years that motion is necessary outside of the Wii Sports series. Galaxy, NSMB, Metroid, Pikmin and Twilight Princess, all with pointless controls. The controls are acceptable, but not better by any stretch of the imagination.
I love Zelda and Skyward looks good, but like I said I think after 4 years, personally
, I'm done with motion in 'core' games with forced motion controls. That's not a slight on anyone else just where I'm at as a gamer now. I gave them ample opportunity to win me over but they failed.
And I'm still wondering how you jump from "not a fan of motion" to "dood, ur ultra leet 360 h@arcor3 gamer!" images.
