Kevin DoughtyOctober 7th, 2014 by Kevin Doughty

BayonettaWhen it was first announced that Bayonetta 2 would be a Wii U exclusive, it ruffled quite a few feathers amongst fans of the original, which had been released on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Despite the shift in consoles, the sequel is looking great. The game was released in Japan a few weeks ago, and reviews are already singing in its praise. As of late, Nintendo can’t seem to resist adding their own flair to the franchise by adding DLC costumes of characters from other Nintendo games. The Bayonetta 2 costumes include, Fox McCloud, Samus, and you guessed it, Link. YouTube channels NintendoWiiUUK and NiNTENDOMiNATi0N have recently shown videos of the tunic-clad Bayonetta in action.

Gossip Stone: Do You Want a Hyrule Warriors Sequel?

Mases HagopianOctober 7th, 2014 by Mases Hagopian

hyrule_warriors_nintendo_wii_u_game-wideHyrule Warriors has been out for a few weeks for us in the western world and a number of downloadable content packs are on their way in the coming months. The DLC will include additional characters, a new adventure mode map, and even some additional new objectives in legend mode. With that said, while the DLC will add some legs to game and keep us playing for a few months, I think for the most part we’ve all got a taste of what the game has to offer.

Back in June when I got a chance to interview Eiji Aonuma and the development team of Hyrule Warriors, I specifically asked if there were things that the development team left out of the final product due to time constraints. Yosuke Hayashi, the producer of Hyrule Warriors stated, “I don’t have any specific instances, but I’m sure that among the team members there are great ideas that we couldn’t bring to fruition.”

LinkWe all love Link and many people have dressed up as him for Halloween, random fancy dress parties or for a gaming event. While dressing up as our favourite hero can cost a small fortune there are plenty of shirts, jumpers and hoodies that are modelled after Link’s tunic. One particular hoodie that is available from the website TVStoreOnline is designed after the incarnation of Link from The Wind Waker and it looks pretty cool.

UntitledLink’s wide array of items in every new Zelda game tend to be obtained through dungeons, and the dungeons revolve around the use of those items, but A Link Between Worlds introduced the new method of buying nearly all your items through Ravio’s shop. This was a fresh new idea, and many loved it, as it opened up some great in-game possibilities. Now that a new Zelda is around the corner, should this method be used again, should the old dungeon-item method return, or should something brand new be done? Join the discussion after the jump!

Sheik-and-Princess-Zelda-in-Super-Smash-Bros-4-princess-zelda-36979901-1920-1080Super Smash Bros. on 3DS was just released, and people are already giving their personal reviews all across the board. One thing that many players are looking down on is the fact that Zelda and Shiek, as well as Samus and Zeros Suit Samus, are separate fighters, unlike their previous joined iterations. Masahiro Sakurai recently gave a quote on why this is the case.

Hyrule Warriors introduced a great new concept of having a large, optional mode that effected the main story, and offered loads of extra gameplay. This mode can easily give you as many hours of play as the main story, if not more. Should more Zelda games involve such a large game mode alongside the usual main story?

Link is, to say the least, a little too perfect sometimes. Aside from his occasional sleepy nature, he has few clear faults. Certain things about him make this clear, like how no one can dislike what he says since he’s a mute, and how he manages to surpass unbelievable feats often without so much as a minute of training. But, should this stay true in future games? Seeing some of the protagonist’s major faults could make things interesting, and could make us like Link even more, so what do you think should be done about it? Join the discussion below!
