Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The Arkham series is one of the best things to come out of last gen, and each game does something better than the others:
Origins - Best story
Asylum - Best atmosphere, location and most focused of the three
City - Best gameplay and more fleshed out fighting system. Also best collection of Rogues.
All three are worth playing for different reasons.
Except Blackgate, such a huge disappointment. The story is okay-ish, the gameplay is rubbish, the villains are okay-ish, the fighting system is terrible and sluggish, the cutscenes are terribly done, the voice work is dumb, and the level design is crap on a stick.
I just got the Master Sword last night in Wind Waker HD after never getting that far on Gamecube because sailing is so boring. It still is boring, but I guess I have a higher tolerance for it now. Anyway, is this like a direct continuation of OoT or something? Those stained glass windows in the sword room were clearly OoT sages, and I got excited.
It's the continuation of the adult timeline post OoT, the one in which Zelda sent him back to be a kid again. Link and the Sages seal Ganondorf at the end of the game, but after Zelda sent Link back, Ganon escaped the seal and since there was no Link to stop him, the Goddesses had to flood the world, thus the world of Windwaker.
