Keep on milking Robin Williams, Nintendo!

Okay, Nintendo. We get it. Robin Williams is a total videogame nerd who named his daughter after Princess Zelda. One thing, though... Zelda Williams isn't in this commercial! I don't want extreme closeups of Robin's creepy old man lips! Th...

Zelda and Robin Williams return in this Skyward Sword ad

Nintendo is riding the Princess Zelda / Zelda Williams connection to the bitter end, but I'm really not bothered. Robin Williams is a such a cartoon character in most everything he does, and his daughter is oh so lovely. More commercials, ...

Don't be afraid of heights in Zelda: Skyward Sword

Seriously, I would just love living in the world of Skyward Sword. Look at how Link and Zelda just jump off the cliff without any fear. I don't know if I'd be able to trust the birds like that to catch me, but I guess I'd have no choice bu...
