REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Nintendo Confident Wind Waker HD Will Be A Wii U System Seller

Posted on Tuesday, September 24 @ 09:21:33 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Nintendo has been struggling in the home console department ever since it launched the Wii U last year. Sadly, a bit of marketing confusion and an overall lack of compelling software has held it back from being the success the company was hoping it'd be.

However, a number of exciting titles on the horizon hope to turn things around for Nintendo, including The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. In fact, a newly discounted console bundle complete with a digital version of the game is now available for purchase.

The Big N believes that this upgraded GameCube adventure will prove to be the system seller the tablet-centric console so desperately needs right now. "It is the perfect time for Zelda fans to discover Wii U," product manager Roger Langford explained. "For many Zelda fans, this is the first time that they’ll discover Wind Waker and we’re treating the game as a triple-A new release."

Langford then went on to cite prior success with a certain Zelda remake on 3DS, saying, "Ocarina of Time 3D performed positively on Nintendo 3DS and we’re looking to replicate this success with The Wind Waker HD."

Do you think Wind Waker has the same kind of selling power as Ocarina of Time? Let us know in the comments below.
