Zelda is pretty awesome isn't it? I presume you're talking about the HD remake for Wii U? I still have my Gamecube version from 2003 in my apartment. Finding all those pieces of heart without the Internet is a formidable accomplishment though! I never did get all 20 hearts on Windwaker even with the Internet. :p
Apparently there's a Zelda spin-off in the works that will be released for Wii U later this year called "Hyrule Warriors." It's apparently similar to Dynasty Warriors, so it's based mostly on fighting enemies rather than solving dungeon puzzles. It should be neat though. I was looking at images of Skyward Sword Link about to face off King Dodongo from OoT that seemed really cool.
Yes, it is Wind Waker HD. There are some neat additions. It's kind of fun finding the random Tingle bottles all over the place. I just realized yesterday that it is a great way to collect pictographs of various items and characters. They also added the ability to take "selfies" (i.e. pictures of yourself). I got my daughter laughing pretty hard when I was fighting off a group of guys and -- in the heat of battle -- I accidentally took out the pictograph and took a selfie of me fighting the bad guys. :D
I still have the Gamecube version, too (and all my Gamecube games ... and N64 games -- my brother has the NES and SNES, though :p). I never get rid of anything. :o
I always used to pride myself on completing games without any outside help. Gaming before the prevalence of the internet made it easier. Now I've discovered, though, that without boatloads of free time to wander aimlessly until I figure it out, the internet is actually quite helpful. :) I do like figuring stuff out myself, but I'd rather spend the time playing through the game nowadays. So I try to balance the two.
I heard about Hyrule Warriors. I'd never heard of Dynasty Warriors before they made that game announcement. The clip I saw looked interesting. It's hard for me to pass up anything Zelda. I finally caved on getting the Wii U when they released the limited edition Zelda bundle. :o
