That coveted musical chest previously thought to be a pre-order incentive for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds has now found its way into the collector's edition of the game. Oh, and it holds 3DS cartridges, turns out. Pretty great.
Available from UK retailer GAME, this £49.99 package also includes a download code for Link's Awakening DX on the 3DS eShop and a poster. I'd buy it if I could.
Club Nintendo is closing. A new loyalty program will be coming later this year, but I really enjoyed my time with it.
The Club isn't completely dead yet though, especially in the case of the European version. The service rece...more
Like the DS before it, the 3DS is becoming one of my favorite platforms. Now that we are several years into its life, it has a pretty great selection of first and third-party games. There are enough now that I have fallen beh...more
Remember when Chris Carter reviewed A Link Between Worlds? I don't see that part of history in this painting, but this painting by DeviantArt's EternaLegend is still pretty cool. Liking that Ganon.more

I'm just giving you a hard time, Chris. I always stand behind our team's reviews, and I'm not concerned with what the other sites have said. But I love The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds so much. It's so good!
Consider this hazing for your new job role. Tee hee hee.more

In recent years, Zelda games have gotten a tad too flowery. What was once a true open world adventure involving a hero thrown into the great unknown with the ability to explore to his heart's content, has become something els...more

At some point, there will be an HD Zelda game and, for our sake, I hope it does away with the constant hand-holding and extended intros that were present in Skyward Sword, among other games.
Right now, none of us have any idea what Nintendo has planned for the next coming of Zelda on the Wii U, but one thing's for sure -- I hope it looks to A Link Between Worlds for guidance.more
Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something.
Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
