Kotaku just posted an epic looking trailer for the forthcoming Zelda DS game. Looks like an epic mixture of old and new school Zelda, honestly can’t wait.
I was one of the 0.0000% of the world that actually loved the Windwakers art directing so to be honest, extra points for keeping it around.
Oh and I noticed yesterday that apparently Burnout 5 is out on the first of next month, another game I’m really looking forward to despite knowing nothing about. Burnout 3 was fantastic, Burnout 4 was Burnout 3.5, apparently they’re opening up the world in the new one, removing menus and making it a little more persistent. Dangerous to mess with something that works so brilliantly, but I’m tempted to throw a preorder in there anyway. I can’t seem to find any preview information on the game though, which makes me somewhat wary.
Sega of America appear to be running a poll on their website (http://www.sega.com/home.php) relating to a revival of a classic Sega franchise.
Perhaps by coincidence this poll appears to be on the Wii virtual console page, however if Sega do this especially for me, I’ll send them a cookie. Nights really was a revolutionary game in its time and with any luck the virtual console could more than do it justice.
I’d go as far as preferring a virtual console release of nights over an actual sequel, just the ability to play nights without hauling out a Saturn.
There also happen to be a bunch of other options, Streets of Rage, Samba Di Amigo, Virtua Cop, but really, Nights is the answer. Just don’t do a Sonic The Hedgehog on us.
For the uninformed http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NiGHTS_into_Dreams…. might help persuade you.
I’m going to start using this again, for the third time or so now? I’ll backport perhaps a post or two, but apart from that I’m going to actually write something. Getting the urge again.
