This looks like a fun game. It's basically an old school Zelda clone, except with quirky graphics. It's 39.99 instead of full price, so it might be worth a pick up. I LOVE old school zelda.

Actually, if it was 39.99 back when Zelda first came out in the 80s, that would make it around $70 or more today.


Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

It's a full game for $20 less than your average release. How isn't that a deal?

ill tell you why its not a deal, because grand theft auto was only 20 dollars when it first came out and it was A NEW GAME not some rehash playing on 90's nintendo nostalgia for people trying to recapture their youth.

Why should we as gamers reward programmers for coming up with a 20 year old game? (apparently while playing mine sweeper)

While it still looks like a decent little game, its just not 40 bucks decent.

I will reward them because they made a kick ass game, so what if the concept/delivery is 20 years old, people bought little big planet and it is just a side-scroller with a level editor...Your argument is weak, and moot...

Then fork over the 40 bucks, you are after all, obviously the market they were going for if you think its worth it.

I bet you're the same kind of person that goes and sees all these movie remakes too, not a slight mind you, but this is what marketing has become these days, rehashing and rebooting everything from the 80's. Some people eat it up, but nostalgia isn't for everyone.

My argument is not moot in the sense that I don't feel its worth 40 dollars for a game I played 20 years ago. Just my opinion.

So what games do you play dantastic? You do realize almost all games are rehashes or borrow elements from other games?

I play games to have fun, not to enjoy the developer's creative integrity.

borrowing elements from another game isn't making an identical game, throwing some cubic 3d rendering on it and calling it new, then charging 40 bucks for it.

The people on this forum are so fucking touchy to anybody who offers another view on things. calm the fuck down all of you.

all I said was, its NOT worth 40 bucks to play a game I played 20 years ago. If it was 15 bucks, im sure I wouldn't have anything to say.

This game isn't identical to the original zelda.

I'm not getting touchy, but your only argument is that you think it costs too much. Hell, I'd pay $15 for the nes/snes version to be released on PSN. If you go into a used-game shop, you'll spend more than $15 to pick up the nes/snes cartridges.

I also happen to not be dirt poor, so $40 to me sounds like a hell of a deal for a retro, challenging, and fun full game. Maybe if you hand't blown your wad on the latest CoD game you wouldnt be so hard up for cash.

neither of you can have a convo without attacking, first ionlylooklazy assumes im some cod nerd, then sir-ex says i must be young...

explain to me how that helps conversation? other than making you both look really fucking classy.

Grow the fuck up and learn to have a conversation without getting all bent out of shape because im not sucking the op's dick.

and who the fuck pays 15 bucks for an snes/nes cartrige? thats fucking the stupidest shit ive herd all day, they are at MOST 1-5 bucks at any flea market, besides that they have those all encompassing nes disks for some video game systems you can download...

so yeah, considering that, charging 40 bucks for this over hyped shitty looking zelda clone, is well...just greedy.

calm the fuck down, jesus

you might be able to get jeopardy or t&c surf designs wood and water rage for 1-5$, but you'll spend more on the classics, like FFI&II, zelda, mario3, punch-out, contra, river city ransom, and mega man games.

No im asking you guys to calm down. seems like any time anybody has an opinion not of the "hive-mind" of yahooka, you get slammed. That's pretty fucking lame. Whats the point of this place if all you guys do is suck each others dicks?

No, you wont spend more on classics, there all a 1-5 bucks at the flea market. Stacks and stacks of nes games long forgotten, you act like they are worth something.

Why would anybody spend more than 5 bucks on a game when an emulator with ALL the nes games, is like 25 bucks?

Now, if you dont have a flea market, even ebay has them for cheaper.
