After the emotional rollercoaster that was Heavy Rain, I thought I’d look for a game that was a little lighter. You know, one where I don’t have to SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS cut off my own finger. /end SPOILERS
Google is my lord and master, amen. I searched ‘best playstation 3 games of 2010’ and 3D Dot Game Heroes looked like the most promising of the bunch, so I Game Stop’ped that schiz.
3D Dot Game Heroes is reminiscent of the retro 8-bit games of Ye Olde Days of video games. It’s basically a love letter to The Legend of Zelda, borrowing heavily from its story and game play, but it imbibes its own tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, even going so far as to include Engrish mistakes and asterisk actions *sigh*
Thus far it’s pretty damn awesome. As a Zelda fan, I appreciate the sense of humor and it’s good, clean fun. But really, the only important thing to report is that I named my character PENIS. It really makes my day when they say things like, “Master PENIS” and “PENIS, you’re amazing!” and “I’m sucking PENIS.” Okay, maybe not the last one.
