Heavy Sword

So I finished this comic last week in good time before E3. Let’s face it: That there would be a new Zelda-game in this years E3 was probably the worst kept secret ever.

So yesterday they revealed The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword. And after seeing the trailer my reaction was… “Meh”.  I wish I felt more than that but, there ya go. I did like the look and feel of Twiligt Princess. I must admit that. But when I started playing it, and got turned into the wolf. Well… It just didn’t feel like I was playing Zelda anymore. It felt like I was playing Okami, a very Zelda inspired game. Sooo… Zelda copied the idea of a game that was copying them? I’m just saying that I didn’t enjoy it as much.

The new game though… Well… It looks like if they took the Link-model from Twilight Princess and placed him inside of Wind Waker. It kind of seems out of place.  Couldn’t they have just made a game in the style of Twilight Princess and not turn Link into a wolf? But then again, it could probaby be heaps of fun, so we’ll see how it goes with The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

As for the comic, well I played with the idea what would happen if Ganon comes back and tries to take over the world when Link is 60+ years old. How would that be like? He’s always been very young in his games so it would probaby be a fun way to look at it :) Yes I know it’s just a fart-joke, but hey… I still like it :) (Especially since everyone takes the Zelda-series sooooo seriously. Hehe 😉 )

Now I am off to finish the KOS-store and work on Saturday’s comic. So you guys have a good time until then, check out some awesome E3 stuff, and  I will see all of you next time!

    I have never quite gotten how Okami copied Zelda. So they have an open world, puzzles and boss battles? There’s a lot of games that have that, those are very general traits. I did not feel like I was playing zelda when I played Okami, it was a different experience altogether. The caligraphy stuff, and the graphics, and the whole cultural feel of the game, so strongly influenced by japanese mythologhy, is nothing like zelda. Sure, you play as a wolf in both games, but it makes a lot more sense in Okami, since Amateratsu is a real mythological being. Please explain how Okami in particulat copied zelda?

    I just remembered how the producer of Okami said in an interview that he was very inspired by the Zelda series when he started the project and stuff. I should try to find it for reference :) So it’s not so much copying as similar or homage, I guess.

    But Out of those two, I personally think that Okami is a better game.

    On a side note, that is a background from Oblivion, isn’t it?

    Panthera: Very well spotted :) Yeah I couldn’t find a decent background from the Zelda games, so this one had to do.

    Marie: lol
