New Zelda unveiled, looks zappy

September 27, 2007

Let that scanshot there sink in before i continue.

…there. Ok.

I was yanking ya, this aint quite the epic you might’ve had in mind by that headline. This is “Link’s Crossbow Training“, that pack-in game for the new Wii Zapper shell. Sounds as complex as a Power Rangers coloring book. Anyone here stoked about the new Zapper thing? Cause i wasn’t really mindful of it before, but these screens make me notice it for the wrong reasons. Umbrella Chronicles is what’s supposed to sell the periph, i know (not that it’s much better), but this thing is like, why even bother? Well at only $20 for the… game… and some white plastic, i guess value is in the wallet of the beholder.

And another thing: The hell is with these people that they’re releasing a new Zelda spinoff thing with the same muddy ass, recycled TP engine? It was passable last November. Not this November. Again, i realize this is just a pack-in, but even Wii Sports had higher production values. Nintendo’s like a middle-aged spouse – they don’t even try anymore.

    well I thought the only part of Zelda that was improved with the WiiMote was the Arrow and Hookshot. They capitalize on the one thing they got right.

    That is true. I wonder if it’s exact, though – some screens lack Link, looking more like UC than TP.

    I think they lack Link because the prespective is first-person…

    In any case, I’m stocked about the Wii Zapper with OR without the Zelda mini-game, so the game is just the cherry on top of the Sundae!

    Really, guys, $20 is not that much (although I got Viva Piñata, one of Rare’s finest, for less than that!)… If it works with Metroid Prime, I’m getting it!

    (Hey, Rollin, how come my pic comes in the mutiny section but not in the comments, like yours and frisby’s??)

    I’m not sure. Same thing on Warcadia with you. Check your profile.

    I am definitely not stoked about the Zapper, if this preview of its showcase game, Umbrella Chronicles, is anything to go by. Besides this man’s first hand preview, it pretty much does nothing in the form of getting me excited. It’s extra plastic that you can do without. No thank you, i’ve had enough gimmicks in my Wii diet.
