I'm not buying it

December 12, 2006|by ROBERT KELLER


"The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess" for GameCube is supposed to be released the middle of this month. I'm surprised we got this close to the release date without it being changed. Two years ago, this game was supposed to be released. Then, the date was moved further and further and further out and, well, you get the picture.

I got tired of waiting, because soon the game wouldn't be worth buying. And I was right.

They spent so much time putting more and more detail into the game that the Wii version came out first.

Now, the GameCube version is out, but you can only buy one by preordering or on a first-come, first-served basis. After contacting a few game stores, I've learned that they are no longer taking orders or are not saying a date when people can come buy the game. The game is supposed to be limited stock, and that makes me mad.


I'm not one to play video games hours and hours on end, but I still play them frequently. I am a huge fan of "The Legend of Zelda" series, and let me tell you that this drops my collection of Zelda game down one more notch. I've waited two long years to get the game, and it made me mad that I am not able to get a copy.

I think Nintendo is doing this to make people buy the Wii. No matter what, I'm not going to buy the Wii just to play "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess."

If Nintendo wants to create limited stock after making everybody wait, then they have one less customer who is going to buy this game.
