The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX

Zelda DX brings you an adventure like no other. Lets take a look!

I decided to pick the DX version mainly because of the added features such as an extra dungeon, photographs to print with your Gameboy printer and of course, color. All of these make an already amazing game even greater! As usual, lets take a look at the game in the different categories.

If there is something more memorable about the Zelda games is the music and this one is no different. The music of this game is splendid! I fell in love with every soundtrack especially the mountain track. I should have that one as a ring tone! Anyways, you will find a lot of memorable tunes and only wonder how much amazing the music would sound if this game were ever to get a remake on lets say the 3DS? Totally fantastic!

The game looks and used the best the gameboy had to offer. Not only that, but the game looked more beautiful in color. You can’t get anything better than Zelda DX graphically wise. If you think about it, the graphics were really advanced for the year it was released. This little handheld was sure able to do a lot more than anyone ever though. No wonder it was never taken down by its competition.

The gameplay is sensational. You have the A and B buttons to equip whichever combinations of items you feel more comfortable with. Of course, you have to know when to use certain items because you can only get so far with a shield and sword. With an array of weapons, challenging dungeons, and comical situations this Zelda game is as enjoyable as the day it was released. The freedom Link has in this game is nothing but great. You’ll feel as if you can do almost anything! Exploring and discover is also a huge plus in Zelda games! Be sure to find all the heart pieces and don’t forget to knock against certain trees. There is a lot to love indeed.

This game is one that you can play over and over and never get bored that’s for sure. I have probably played through this game over ten times and still find it amazingly fun. Why? Because it’s an enjoyable experience that not once makes you want to put it away. Be sure to try to beat the entire game in one sitting for the special ending ^_^

So to conclude, I’m pretty sure I don’t have to mention this twice but I’ll say it again. This game is an absolute masterpiece. You have to play through it at least once in your lifetime. If you are new to Zelda, then this is a great way to step back into Link’s past. You will also not have to spend a fortune on the game as you’ll find it for really cheap (I got mine for 2 dollars). So that’s about it, glad to be bringing this series back to life! Lets keep order and until next week!

Council of Gaming Legends

An idea started in 2008 to bring together some of the legendary gamers to work for a common cause.  Nicknamed the League of Legendary Gamers on Kotaku for a charity event at E4All 2008, a group of gamers united to collect food for the homeless.  This group of “Legendary Gamers,” composed of Walter Day, Johnathan  “Fatal1ty” Wendell, TriForce Johnson, Billy Mitchell, Todd Rogers and Justin Wong,  wanted to do more.

In April 2011, a new council, the Council of Gaming Legends (CGL) was formed.

CGL’s purpose is to promote and preserve the heritage and culture of gaming and to connect Arcade, Console and PC gamers in a common initiative.

The members of the CGL include: Day, TriForce, Mitchell, Rogers, Ben Gold, and Steve Sanders.  Gold, Mitchell, and Rogers were 2010 International Video Game Hall of Fame Inductees.  At the same ceremony where they were inducted, Day received the inaugural “Walter Day Lifetime Achievement Award” for his lifetime dedication to the world and history of professional video gaming.  Sanders, former world champion on Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, was the first team captain of the U.S. National Video Game Team.  TriForce is the Guinness World Champion for Tetris DS and Vs. Super Mario Brothers.

“Lightning has struck twice. The greatest legends in gaming have come together for the positive, forward evolution in our gaming culture,” TriForce said.

Over the next several months, the CGL will reach out to many different organizations, companies and individuals that share these same values. A formal press event and conference will take place at Billy Mitchell’s King of Kong Arcade at the Orlando International Airport on Saturday, April 30, where they will discuss several concrete initiatives that the group is undertaking.

CGL’s first proud sponsor is Save Point Gaming.  For more information, visit www.twitter.com/savepointgaming
