I'm just MLG like that.

Hey, do you think there will be a hook/clawshot in ZW?
Agreed. As for the Magic Meter... I kind of agree. Yeah, it was a mistake overall to exclude it, but one thing that is true, at least for Twilight Princess is that it probably didn't add anything to the game as it was. Yeah, it would have added another layer of depth and difficulty to the gameplay, but TP wasn't all that deep in that area, and certainly wasn't challenging, so it's not too surprising. Just kinda in the nature of the game. Doesn't mean it wasn't a mistake however, so you're probably still right. As I've said in the past, I (somehow) have a fair amount of faith in Nintendo this time around and expect some improvements, including the return of the Magic Meter.They're not going to get of what's become a staple of 3D Zelda since it began. The hookshot has been featured in every 3D installment, and it's been around in the series for even longer than that; why would they get rid of it? It'd be like getting rid of the bow and arrow, which is definitely not going to happen. Plus, so many cool game play elements revolve around a hookshot item. I still remember that room in the water temple in OoT where you had to hookshot your way up a huge pillar of falling platforms riding a water fall. The Double Clawshot in TP was the same way. I just can't imagine they could create a good enough reason to leave it out.
Then again, they did get rid of the magic meter, which makes me doubt them somewhat.
