You can easily find the GameCube version that also includes the Master's Quest edition for next to nothing since it was what you got when you pre-ordered Wind Waker.

Just FYI.

The disk is 480p, too.

Does the gamecube pre-order disk version look better than the VC version?

I would probably prefer to have the physical media and let the Wii go into 'GC Mode'.

I'm not saying that the VC version isn't going to kick butt. Just that unlike the other Zelda games, some ppl might still have the ability to play their original copy (me included).

Yeah, same here. I have the Master Quest disc. Then on the Collector's Edition disc, the original is best on that one. So there is a reason to have both of those bonus discs. Not to mention the CE one also has loz, aol, and MM. Only reason for the VC version if you already own the GC discs is if the classic controller would be good for it.

I don't spend a lot of time looking at used game prices, but everytime I'm in a EB/Gamestop I've seen that sucker going for $40. Never seen it cheap anywhere

I have two copies of the gamecube Master Quest Ocarin of Time (this is not the one that includes the Original NES zelda). I have on opened and one new. PM me if you want to buy one. I'm not looking to extort. The open copy is mint condition and would rather sell that cheap to somebody.

I know. I was just giving the OP a hard time.

I thought I read somewhere that the VC version looks a little better. Don't quote me on that though.

I have that bonus disc and I doubt it looks better enough to justify spending money on it.

^ Ya.. I just downloaded the VC version. There's no way I'd buy the bonus disk unless I got a helluva deal for it (bc it includes Majora's Mask).

Well if you go by the value of these games on the VC the disc should be worth $30 (Zelda $5, Zelda 2 $5, Ocarina $10, MM $10).
post #16 of 29
one thing that you guys are not mentioning is the lack of rumble support in the VC version. i beleive that this is a significant drawback because many of the secret areas are indicated through rumble.
post #17 of 29
Majora's Mask is one I think I've missed throughout the years. Can it be played on a DS?
post #18 of 29
Is the VC version 60fps? If the framerate isn't better, I have no reason to get this as I already have the original, the collectors disk version, and the master quest version. lol

I haven't tried this game on VC, but my understanding is that VC games in general produce an identical output to what the original console would have done. In my opinion, that makes the GC version the best since it gets a graphical upgrade to 480p and there are no DRM restrictions on the game disc or the save files.

Mario64 is reportedly 480p and 60fps on VC, so I thought OoT might be same. *shrug*

My Wii isn't even online yet to find out, it seems to crash my wireless access point when it tries to connect to it, and i've been to lazy to get a wired adapter for it so far.

I thought they were pretty much exactly reproducing the originals, but apparently not. If I remember correctly, OoT was built on the Mario 64 engine, so it could very well be 480p, too. Like I said, I haven't bought OoT on VC to check since I already own three copies.

"built on the Mario 64 engine" is a pretty loose definition of the phrase.

It started out as taking parts from the Mario 64 engine, but it fast became an entire beast unique to itself.

N64 emulation is not likely to ever happen on the DS. SNES emulation is extremely buggy and slow as it is. Unless they officially ported the N64 Zelda games to DS (which would be awesome), I don't see it happening. There's just not enough power to emulate the N64's CPU.

Damn, I might never get to play this then without finding the collectors disk for cube. I do think DS can handle 64 games, I have Super Mario 64 DS and it handles it very well. Though it may not be a straight port, I think the DS version is larger.

If you have Wii, I am sure it will be on that at some point.

I wish BS Zelda would be on VC.
post #26 of 29
Hey BGNome : Can you check your pm really quick please? It's about a ks4102 firmware.

Thanks

Honestly, why not just dig out an old N64? I'm sure someone you know has one, and if not they can't possibly cost much these days. Majora's Mask is totally worth it if you ask me. Oh, and I'm almost positive it ISN'T on the Master Quest disc, either.

No, but it IS on the Zelda bonus disc.

the DS is more powerful than the n64. the mario 64 is bigger, and has a higher polygon count, and better textures. much less clipping, too.

i doubt we'll see any zelda n64 ports onto the ds, as it would take away from both the upcoming phantom hourglass and the VC sales.
