In response to a few recent games that appear to be lacking in the criteria. This is a short list and thoughts on some stand out game mechanics that developers seem to be ignoring and need to build upon.
The Saddest Legend of Zelda Art Ever, Get Your Tissues Ready
2013 so far has been a treasure trove of fan art around the internet. While I’m sure these talents have been around longer than just 17 days, it is amazing the kind of work we are finding.
Today we are gifted with perhaps one of the most saddening depictions of how The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword could have ended. The art is done by Deviant Art user Ferisae.
Ferisae explains that what is happening here in this 3-part comic is not actually a part of Skyward Sword so no spoilers are to be had. However, he says that it would have been a post-game scenario and to be honest I feel that it would have been a perfect ending to roll into the rest of the timeline.
If you don’t know, the timeline for The Legend of Zelda has Skyward Sword as the beginning of Link. Zelda isn’t seen with Link again until Ocarina of Time. It is then that the timeline shifts into three possibilities.
If Ferisae’s post-game event happened, it would have been a defining moment in the franchise and for Nintendo, who normally shies away from doing this to their own all-star heroes.
Either way, here is the 3-part comic which are all linked to Ferisae’s page. Enjoy and I hope you have your tear shields up.
Right in the feels…
