Yes, but Spirit Tracks was only 2 years ago.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

I didn't know there were other Zelda fans here.. I'm somewhat of a Zelda fanatic and dork that has finished pretty much every Zelda title going back to and including A Link to the Past, excluding Oracle of the Seasons (which I'll be starting at some point), and Spirit Tracks (which doesn't work properly in emulation yet).

This game looks gorgeous. I know it isn't HD and stuff, but the art direction is so great that it is hard to imagine a Zelda game looking substantially better.

This game is also supposed to be between 50 - 100 hours worth of gameplay. It looks like there will be a lot of content to play with! I'm really looking forward to the real orchestrated music too rather than the silly MIDI stuff.

What I wonder is what this franchise will do with the jump to the Wii U which won't have the Wiimote Plus (AFAIK)...

How did you play Wind Waker and Majora's Mask? In emulation or live?

Is there some secret rule that Nintendo threads get to stay in the Lounge rather than get banished to the Gaming forum Siberia like they deserve?

Actually missed that it was in the Lounge. It's been moved.

You could have reported it.

True, but since the last time I did that it didn't work, I opted for the more vocal approach.

Why is the princess wearing Link's outfit?

Emulation. I don't have any actual Nintendo consoles.

A lot of people seem to get wrapped up in the stories, characters, and timeline and stuff like that. I don't give a rat's ass generally speaking, I'm more interested in the puzzles and often find the stories to be lame (perhaps that would be so with any video game), but there are rumors that this game features a little romance between Link and Zelda as childhood friends.

I'm hoping for a threesome with Tingle.

The demo was leaked, and as it turns out it words in Dolphin just fine. There is a graphical glitch, but this didn't exist in an older Dolphin build, so this should just be a matter of addressing this regression. There are rumors that Dolphin will also require the Wiimote with the Plus adapter, but I'm not sure about that.

There are screenshots floating around of the SS demo with the upscaled HD resolution in Dolphin, I can post these if anybody cares.
