The holidays are over, and I suppose it’s back to slaving over a gaggle of websites every waking moment for me. To demonstrate how I’ve accepted my grim fate, please accept this, the first GameSpite update of 2009. Continuing Issue 12 is a weirdly Nintendo-focused update. I say weirdly because there’s not even a hint of NES or Super NES about this update. Bizarre! What other freakish new phenomena does the new year hold for us?
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
You know, if I’d posted this in a more timely fashion, it would have made a pretty decent 10th anniversary commemoration of the first 3D Legend of Zelda outing. But alas! You’ll have to settle for it a few months late. Don’t worry, though; my tardiness doesn’t diminish the author’s gushing fanboyism for the game.
Wave Race: Blue Storm
And at the other extreme, we have a look back at the third Wave Race title that’s…also full of gushing fanboyism. Ah, but the thing about Blue Storm is that this is the only positive article that’s ever been written about the game, whereas everybody’s all “Oh Ocarina of Time is just so special.” Revel in the iconoclasm!
