Is it me or has Zelda 2015 switched back to Windwaker graphics? This is from E3:

It's skyward sword style which is somewhere between TP and WW.

Indeed. The minecraft hololens demonstration looked really stunning. Also, it seems that battlefront III won't really look like (in terms of gameplay) to the II, but I personnaly like the change they've made. (Like, no classes, but own player design). Can't wait to play it  :D
Oooh that sounds like a good change. I want to watch a trailer but I also just want to wait until it comes out.

It looks like Super Mario Maker will retail for $60 in USA and $70 in Canada. I guess this breaks the trend of retro stuff being released for $30-40, but the level editing capabilities of this game probably explains it.

Wow. 60$? That is extremely expensive O.O

It's the standard price for new games, but generally, HD ports or remakes, as well as re-releases, are priced $30-40. THis game appears to be an exception. I'm definitively getting it, though and Omega Quintet might have to wait a bit.

Over here it's always been 60€ too, despite the eur/dollar exchange...
Way to much for a game IMO. Though on steam it's generally a little cheaper than in game stores. Also there are sales :3

Indeed. I tend to prefer physical copies, though, since it's easier to re-install from a disc than redownloading everything (plus if Steam ever closes down and you have to reformat your hard drive then you're screwed)


And AFAIK, Steam lacks Nintendo games :P

If steam ever closed everyone would be screwed as they use an online authentication service to play games. After you launch the game for the first time it does the necessary things to launch the game in offline mode but its very screwy and sometimes does not work.

Isn't there a way to launch Steam games without launching Steam client? IIRC you just had to find the executable in your Programs folder and you were set.

But yeah, that is why I tend to prefer physical game copies. Not to mention that a digital copy has no trade-in value.

The program file one launches a steam thing to launch the game so in theory it could be disassembled to allow direct launch but I think it's near impossible.

Also on the original topic which I guess is pretty old now,

Yeah but I once managed to launch some Steam games and programs (eg RPG Maker VX) without launching the Steam thing. I went in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common and the games were there. However, I bet it won't work if a game in particular requires Steam to work.

Yeah that may be how it is. I think I've only tried if with valve games so I wouldn't really know all the details.
