While this might not be the freshest news out of the box, we here at Destructoid had not brought this little tidbit of information to you, the readers, attention yet. While running down what we know about Zelda Wii so far Zelda Informer listed the fact that the game had been in development for going on five years. That's before Twilight Princess launched and, if true, makes this Zelda have the longest development time in the series since Ocarina. We all know how well that turned out.

The information comes from an old copy of Game Informer, which came out in January of 2007. In the pages the magazine mentioned that a Zelda game specifically for the Wii has been in development for a year already. That means if it comes out at the end of this year it will have had around five years of development time and if it lands in 2011 it will be nearing six. With a development cycle like this and all the talk about change in the series we might be seeing a brand new take on Zelda come this Christmas (please, please, please).

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

Oh, nice, Future Press is doing a hardcover Bloodborne strategy guide

I know, I know -- you don't need a guide for Bloodborne just like you didn't need any assistance with Dark Souls or Demon's Souls or King's Field. You're that good. Or, more likely, you just wanted to go in as blindly as poss...more
