    Man this is exciting! I can't wait for the rest.

    I'm happy that Gabe is happy and that new and exciting things keep happening for these two.

    I haven't really been paying attention to SS

    I knew I'd buy it and that I'd enjoy it but until I could play it I've just been ignoring it

    this has gotten me really excited though

    oh god and now I am reading the interview with the development team and they're talking about a boss that can block your sword from any angle and are hinting that the trick to beating him is to swing, stop short, and swing from a different direction to juke him out

    fuck I need this game

    I keep reading these interviews
    Tominaga: Sure. I'm Tominaga from the Entertainment Analysis Division (EAD). I mostly worked on the volcano game field and the planning of the dungeons.

    Iwata: You made the volcano.

    Tominaga: Yes, that's right. Thanks for having me here today.

    why do I find this so funny

    why do I find this so funny

    Because they keep translating the original Japanese dialogue literally.

    Dialogue in that language is weird when you translate it, it's something like

    "Hello, I mowed the lawn with the mower today"

    "Yes, you mowed the lawn today"

    or

    "I fed the dog and cat an hour ago"

    "Thank you, you fed the pets an hour ago."

    That's part of it

    the other is just how deadpan it sounds and how ridiculous it is out of context

    "Hi there. I made a volcano."

    "You made a volcano?!"

    "Yyyup."

    New page is good. I think I know the direction they're taking with this and I like it.

    bleh from what gabe's saying it's not what I thought it was. so not as fun.

    The second page of our Zelda: Skyward Sword comic is now live over on Nintendo’s site.

    When we first sat down to write this project we had a hard time. Link doesn’t speak and Nintendo didn’t want him to even have an internal monologue. So the narration had to come from someplace else. After we started playing though the game we discovered what a cool character Gaepora was. He is Zelda’s father and as Dads ourselves, we tried to immagine what all of this must be like for him. His daughter is missing and the only person who can save her is this kid? It seemed like an interesting angle to us and I think the final product is a cool look inside the mind of someone you might just skip over otherwise.

    Here are a couple detail shots from the high res version.

    I want that second shot as a wall paper

    The first high res panel has a bad case of Trenches-nose.

    Really fell flat for me... I think they did much, much better work with Automata and Lookouts. Makes this kinda look "bleh" in comparison.
