Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night shall keep me from my duties! Sorry for the update wasteland, ZUsers – I was pretty ill for most of January. But I am returned from the brink with a little tidbit from GameVideos/1Up.com about which Virtual Console titles are worth your precious Wii Points.
Top o’ the pile? Why, A Link to the Past, which was the sole VC release last week. If any game deserves to stand alone, ALttP is it. Jeremy Parish and crew make a point about OoT and TP being little more than clones of ALttP’s formula – if you call yourself a Zelda fan but haven’t checked it out on the SNES or GameBoy Advance, you owe it to yourself to give it a whirl on the Wii. A truly fantastic game that can reasonably be called one of the greats; a game that will go down in history as a triumph of 2D gameplay, storytelling and presentation.
Check out the video – beware some minor swearing and off-colour jokes.
