New Legend Of Zelda In Link To The Past World Announced

​Reggie took a role in today's Nintendo Direct to point out that one of his favorite games in the Legend of Zelda series was A Link To The Past. So, he was on board to announce the next, currently unnamed, Zelda title which will be available this holiday on the 3DS and take place in the same world as A Link To The Past. It will keep the same classic top down gameplay while adding a sense of height and volume of the 3D screen on the 3DS which is great for puzzle solving. It features a new storyline and new dungeons. Link will have the ability to become a drawing and move along walls which will also change the view orientation, so that you can see solutions you may not have been able to see before.

HarmoKnight Review

Auto-running games are nothing new, but they are trending with the added flavor of musical rhythm. Bit.Trip Runner got a sequel, but even that pales in comparison to the emphasis on music that HarmoKnight presents, which offers a musical note planet called Melodia, with all manner of life shaped like instruments. With an invasion on Melodia by aliens called the Noizoids, and no HarmoKnights in commission to protect the land, it is up to Tempo, a young warrior, to build his skills and fight against the threat.

Puddle Review

The point of Puddle is to guide a pile of liquid through a 2D side-scrolling obstacle course by tilting it one way or the other. However, you can’t adjust how far you tilt. If you tilt left, that’s it; you can’t tilt slightly to the left or way over to the left. So, without the ability to fine tune the angle you tilt the environment, there’s little point in the motion controls offered. I ended up mapping Puddle’s tilting controls to the shoulder buttons of my Wii U gamepad.

The Cave Review

I’ve got a cold. Ib I were obnoxious, I wud tybe like dis. But I’m not. Point is, when I get so much as the sniffles, I tend to hunker down with a relaxing game: something that allows my brain and reflexes to leave the building while my immune system is busy. However, The Cave relies entirely on puzzles, an area where I don’t excel. So, I said to myself, I’ll give it a shot and stop when I get stuck.

(Is that considered a cold open?)

Crimson Shroud Review

I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons or any tabletop RPG. I can barely sit through a session of Monopoly, so I can’t imagine slogging through a DND campaign spanning weeks or even months.

I’ve heard, though, that the key to a good game of DND is a good dungeon master. The dungeon master (DM) is tasked with telling an engaging story for the game. With any luck, this person brings your little figurines to life so they can play parts in a grand narrative. Crimson Shroud has a dungeon master with the same goal in mind, and it brings that same slow feeling to a typical RPG experience. What makes Crimson Shroud interesting is its unique sense of pacing.
