Realistically Encumbered Link

Image
A staple of the The Legend of Zelda games is all the items that you can acquire throughout your adventure. However, one simple question is always raised when thinking about all the items that Link acquires throughout the game; Where does he hold all of these items??

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
appears to have taken care of this by adding an inventory limit and allowing you to swap items in and out of your adventuring pouches. All previous games however allowed you to carry an unlimited amount. Deviant Art artist WakaBee has created a beautiful piece of art titled "Link Stuffs" that shows us Link (from A Link to the Past) walking through a cave while carrying all of his items realistically. WakaBee has done an amazing job on this photo from the drawing style to the choice of colors.

Happy 48th Birthday, Doctor Who!

Happy Birthday, Doctor Who!! 48 years ago today, people gathered around their television sets to watch the very first Doctor Who episode, which was titled An Unearthly Child. (If you haven't had the chance to watch this episode yourself, then check it out below and enjoy the episode that started it all.) Without giving away too much in the description the first episode introduces us to Susan Foreman (the Doctor's Granddaughter) and her school teachers. Upon following Susan home one day, her teachers discover a police phone box (the TARDIS) and an elderly man named the Doctor (William Hartnell). The Doctor that we are introduced to is much more strict than his current incarnations and not much is learned about him in this first half hour episode. The episode ends with ... well, watch to find out.

Nintendo of America Announces Two 3DS Bundles

I previously reported that Nintendo would be releasing a The Legend of Zelda 3DS bundle in Europe. This was fantastic for European Nintendo gamers but what about everybody else? Well, Nintendo of America officially announced today that North America will be getting two bundles of their own. They will of course be getting the stunning The Legend of Zelda 3DS bundle (see linked post for photos) as well as a Super Mario 3D Land bundle. The The Legend of Zelda bundle comes with the gorgeous cosmo black 3DS with gold The Legend of Zelda markings and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. The Super Mario 3D Land bundle will come with a regular flame red 3DS and Super Mario 3D Land. Both will have a price tag of $199 and will be released on November 24th (Thanksgiving).
