You had to pay in the form of putting up with bad controls and faulty emulation

>> No.6842403

>bad controls and faulty emulation
nah, it was surprisingly playable and enjoyable, will play again.

>> No.6842408

So you think anyone who missed the chance to get it back in the day doesn't deserve to play it ever? Or what?

>> No.6842589

>$5 preorder for a bonus worth more than the shit you're paying an extra $55 for

>> No.6842609

Yes, but this also means you preordered Wind Waker, thereby contributing to the downfall of the Zelda series. Wind Waker was the beginning of nu-Zelda. If people would have put their foot down and refused to buy it Zelda wouldn't be dead with its grave being pissed on by zoomers right now.
Anyone who missed it back in the day should emulate it and not award Nintendo's limited edition faggotry.
> People buy limited edition shit from scalpers at a high price
> Scalpers and collectors see that people are willing to pay out the ass for these old games once they're out of print
> Scalpers and collectors rush out to mass buy every new limited edition release
> Nintendo sees this and intentionally makes releases limited to get money from scalpers and collectors
People purchasing this shit are responsible for the bullshit Nintendo is pulling with Mario All-Stars 3D. Yes, even if you bought it used. In fact, doubly so if you bought it used.

>> No.6842635

I wonder how much of Wind Waker's sales were people who just wanted this bonus disc.

>> No.6842653

They're winners in the long run. They didn't have to play wind waker.

>> No.6842747

You could get the other Zelda collection for free by subscribing to Nintendo Power. Didn’t even have to preorder anything. I did preorder Wind Waker though and got this game to tide me over until release. I was disappointed only the dungeons were changed, to be honest. Wind Waker is the coziest Zelda, as far as visuals and music go.

>> No.6842856

That's why I got it, I didn't like the Windwaker art style. I just wanted to play Ocarina with the Gamecube controller

>> No.6842898

I still have my OoT GC disk but have long since sold Wind Waker. Fuck that game.

>> No.6843000

Meh, I bought it a decade ago at gamestop for $20.

>> No.6843071

I bought it used at gamestop 15 years ago for a low amount. After it spiked up in value I ended up selling it and just emulating it because I have collectors edition and the n64 version. I don't really care about the master quest version it was just the same dungeons mixed around.

>> No.6843086

Anyone who preordered Windwaker, did this happen to you?

Basically, after preordering, Gamestop later called me and told me that this was being discontinued, they weren't giving them for preorders anymore. It fucked me up, but later they called me back and told me they got it worked out.

Did this just happen to me?

>> No.6843121

>Wind Waker was the beginning of nu-Zelda
Not really. There are only three Zelda eras.
1: Classic Zelda (LoZ, AoL)
2: Lock-and-Key Zelda (every other Zelda game, except...)
3: Classic Zelda Revival (BotW)
ALttP was the fundamental shift into something different for Zelda games where they cut back on non-linearity and open design while emphasizing "story" and lock-and-key puzzle design (you must find and use X item to progress past X obstacle, like hookshot on hookshot point, and that somehow counts as a Zelda "puzzle")

There was a time in my life when I somehow had two copies of Oot on N64, plus the Wind Waker pre-order version that came with master quest, PLUS the zelda collection version that you got from registering 2 gamecube games and then also the virtual console version.

> BOTW is like classic Zelda
What a cancerous fucking take. BOTW is about as similar to classic Zelda as Assassin's Creed is. This entire notion is a desperate cope by zoomers to convince themselves that their modern nu-openworld garbage is "real Zelda" and not a Ubisoft knockoff with a Zelda skin.

>> No.6844939

i have a copy of that in really shitty condition, about how much money have i lost?

>> No.6845498

A "friend" of mine stole my copy of OOT, so I was very happy to get this when it came out. I'm also kinda surprised that there's STILL people complaining about TWW's visuals in 20 fucking 20. It's like some people are eternal 14 year old edgy kids that need brown and mature stuff all the time.
Complaining about the triforce hunt is legit, tho. But still I enjoyed TWW, despite the easy as fuck dungeons. Final boss was kino and the whole game was a great adventure with timeless visuals.

>> No.6845513

>> No.6845531

just wait for some faggot to post the webm of the "Zelda 1 prototype they used to design BotW" and tell you it's the best sequel to Zelda 1 we've ever had. gotta say, I don't really remember Zelda 1 being a Skyrim clone where you run around an endless expanse collecting mushrooms and crossdressing.

>> No.6845664

I didn't even have a Game Cube yet when this came out, but I put down $5 to preorder a copy of Wind Waker just to get this disc. Never did end up getting Wind Waker until a lot of years later.

From 2007-2011 I would go to thrift stores and the gamestop bargin bins and buy GC games. I think Sunshine would go for like $15 at the time.
It's crazy how much the price on these jumped.

>> No.6849241

>half price books
market price games. popped into one yesterday and they had no gamecube or xbox games, a handful of ps2, and not that much more 7th and 8th gen. it used to be my go to place and i'd always find something decent for 5-10 bucks, now it's a wasteland.

>> No.6849252

I once walked into a Hollywood Video that was desperate to get rid of their lingering N64 titles, and they had a deal of "buy 3 for $10"... and DK64 was $10, so I just picked that and two other games for effectively free.

You’re literally the definition of a hipster by proclaiming pride in having it before it was cool OP.

>> No.6850701

No, hipsters try to LARP as having been there before it was cool, but they never were there.
OP is an OG who was actually there, you can tell by its chad-like assertion and confidence. A real hipster would be more passive-aggressive about it, trying to seem like he's cool when he's clearly not.

If only phones had bluetooth, you could pair a controller up to it and use that instead.

>> No.6855706

>aLttP focused on lock and key puzzles
No, actually, a vast majority of the puzzles in A Link to the Past involved being aware of your vertical location: How stairs affected what level of the area you are, visible ceilings obscuring the path and your own location, and what areas you could access by dropping off ledges.

(Also, the dungeons don't have to be beat in linear order, even just to get the items. You can skip the hookshot and still access and beat dungeon 4 and 6)

With the next Zelda game (Links awakening) the game had to feel more difficult while also working with a very compact space and with less hardware, and THIS is when the zelda series started adopting a less subtle lock and key design.

I think it's safe to say that a lot of my hatred toward Nintendo can be traced back to wanting to play pokemon on my playstation and realizing Nintendo was preventing me from doing so.
