It appears that there is 15 hours of game time before Legend Mode is cleared and it has about 500 hours worth of replay value. Many of the reviewers were surprised that the 3DS could really show off so much of what makes the Warriors series so fantastic and they saw way more enemies than what they expected on screen. They also mentioned that they felt the game had much more volume in content. These little tidbits only help to continue to fuel my excitement for the game! What about you?

Clock Town (Downtown Parody)

clock townA YouTuber by the name of Laura Intravia created a very light hearted Majora’s Mask parody of “Downtown” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. It referenced things such as the dance from the old Japanese SNES commercials and Ben drowned which is a cult classic. It was good to see the amount of effort put into the music video and that they put lots of references in. Intravia managed to get a good amount of people to help with the production and used some in game footage which was a very nice touch. The video is done to a high quality and the resources present were used well.

Two Upcoming Zelda Titles Land In Famitsu’s Most Wanted

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 7.56.13 AMThis week, Famitsu released the results of its latest most wanted games charts. All votes were cast between November 5th and the 11th, and two different Zelda titles landed in the Top 25. The upcoming title, Hyrule Warriors Legends came in at #14 with 220 votes. Not all together a bad spot considering it has already been released for the Wii U, it would seem as if all of the newer content that will be added for the 3DS version is getting people excited. Although I am slightly biased as I would have preferred to see it in the Top 10, but that mainly stems from the fact that I find myself much more excited for this version than I was for the Wii U version. The next upcoming title to land its place in the most wanted charts is the yet unnamed Zelda Wii U, this game didn’t fair as well as it landed in the #23 spot with 177 votes, but considering this isn’t the first time we see this title in the most wanted, and it still doesn’t have a set release date, I would say it is not a bad showing. Its nice to see that a game that has been delayed is still able to inspire attention and desire from fans, though that emotion from gamers can be fleeting, and I definitely do not want to see fans loose interest because it took too long to release! What are your thoughts? Do you agree with where each title landed in the most wanted charts? What game are you most excited for? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

IGN: The Wind Waker, From Hated to Cherished

wp-1-1920x1080 Admittedly, when The Wind Waker was released back in 2003, I was not a fan. My first look at it was as a twenty minute demo on the Zelda Collector’s Edition my siblings and I got for Christmas when I was ten. At the time, I had just finished playing through Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask–my second and third Zelda games ever–and the concept of a ‘Toon Link’ was so bizarre to me, the switch in worlds so monumental that, as a ten-year-old, I irrationally decided to reject the game entirely. It wasn’t until I was much older and the HD remake was released that I decided to give the game another chance, and found that I actually really liked it. In fact, it has, up until this point, become one of my favorite Zelda titles and I find myself replaying it every four-six months; almost as much as I replay Ocarina of Time.

Beyond the jump is a video where the guys at IGN explain this common occurrence throughout the fanbase. That, in the last twelve years since The Wind Waker‘s initial release, fans have converted from hating the change in Zelda’s direction, to absolutely adoring it and eager for more re-releases of favorite Zelda titles.
