Link Between Worlds: Hand-holding & Majora's Mask ties
by Steven Hansen

Lots of tidbits for you Zelda fans over the weekend. Longtime series producer and director Eiji Aonuma gave a long talk at New York Comic-Con, which you can catch above. Immediately after, he sat down to an interview with Polygon where he discussed changes made to the upcoming 3DS title A Link Between Worlds, which wasn't originally related to the classic A Link to the Past.

But we could've made this game, or a game, without having Link to the Past as a base. Because we have the ability to go into the walls, and then contrasting that with the top-down view, that was basically the kernel of the game — that mechanic, and then those two contrasting camera views.

I've been curious about where that mechanic came from; it's interesting to hear it was part of the game's origin. Still, why then develop the Link to the Past tie in the first place? According to Aonuma, it's all about familiarity.

We used a lot of the base material from Link to the Past, setting it in that same world to kind of deepen the entire experience. Because that would make it easier for people to get into, and easier for people to understand. But there's also a lot of stuff in it that's completely different. So it could've just been its own game — I mean, it is its own game.

NYCC: Puppeteer looks amazing in 3D

I got a fair bit of hands-on time with Puppeteer at New York Comic-Con this weekend, but the best of what I've seen of the game so far was still hands off. And in 3D. Sony was kind enough to give us a peek at a boss fight fro...

NYCC: Until Dawn is a horny horror flick that you control photo
NYCC: Until Dawn is a horny horror flick that you control
by Dale North

Announced at gamescom earlier this year, Until Dawn puts players in control of the cast of characters in what looks to be a classic teen horror film. It's a PS3 title set for next year, and it uses the PlayStation Move controller exclusively. 

I got a full walkthrough of one particularly horny extened segment of the game here at New York Comic-Con. It followes characters Jessica and Michael as they head out and away from the lodge. The folks with them on this group trip have had enough of their horniness, and have sent them away to do their thing in a secluded cabin in the woods. 

If you've seen enough horror flicks, you probably know how this goes.

NYCC: Hands-on with charming PS3 platformer Puppeteer photo
NYCC: Hands-on with charming PS3 platformer Puppeteer
by Dale North

I finally had a chance to go hands-on with Sony's upcoming PS3 platformer Puppeteer here at New York Comic-Con at a PlayStation press event. It's as great as I imagined it would be after hearing about it at gamescom earlier this year. I was able to play exactly what was shown at gamescom, and I really enjoyed the solid platforming and charming presentation.

Puppeteer is a platformer that plays out on a fixed theater stage. It's based on a Japanese performance art called bunraku, and it uses constantly changing sets and lighting to tell its really weird story.
