Saw Brave today. Every scene that The Witch was in, I could only think of these two.
(NOTE: THIS IS NOT A SLAM ON ZELDA. I LOVE ZELDA, I’M JUST TRYING TO MAKE A POINT)
This is something I meant to draw for months, but didn’t get around to, but since the year’s almost over I better get it done.
2011 was the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda (1986-2011) and it was an anniversary with much fanfare: there were four Zelda games released this year, Skyward Sword (which also had a special edition), a 3DS Virtual console release of Link’s Awakening, a remake of Four Swords on DSi, and a 3DS remoke of Ocarina of time. If you were part of the 3DS ambassador program, you got three additional games, too: Zelda 1 and 2, and Minish cap. There was even a 25th anniversary orchestral concert.
Metroid, on the other hand, also had a 25th anniversary this year with little fanfare, other than a few fan tributes and a V-Con release of Metroid II, there was no celebration on Nintendo’s part at all. Now don’t go thinking I feel that Zelda didn’t deserve the attention—it did. In fact there’s some Skyward Sword fan art that I’ve had on the backburner that I’ll be posting soon. I just feel Metroid deserved it too.
Budding game designers: Having trouble coming up with a boss character? Create a floating head with a pair of floating hands.
Say what you want about the Zelda cartoon, it at least EXPLAINED where and how Link was able to store his plethora of equipment.
God damn the Water Temple. I hate it to hell. More Zelda stuff. I think I’m making a thing out of celebrating the worst parts of otherwise great franchises.
I created a meme on Deviantart: Give me your TOP 5 Game Boy Games!
