As you obviously know, Breath of the Wild came out about a week ago and I’ve been playing it. I’ve been asked when the next part of Seven Dark Sorcerers will come out, but I think obviously you can figure out the development has been halted for now.

I thought I would share some of my moments that I’ve posted on Twitter, and when I am happy enough I’ll post these as a compilaiton to youtube.

(Spoilers)

I will say most these clips are intended to be funny, but there are a few that showcase my frustration with some of the game elements so you’ve been warned.

As for my overall impressions so far, I think this game is very good, and it makes Skyward Sword look silly in comparison.

Since I know people just want a score, I’m still not finished, and I am harsh on video games. I was harsh on the last two as they took so long to come out, and this one took even longer so Twilight Princess I have a 7, and Skyward Sword I gave a 6. Breath of the Wild to me is not a 10. There are too many combinations of flaws such as the obvious frame rate which I’ve experienced many times and caused a few deaths. When I kill or knock over a Moblin the game will freeze for a second which is confusing.

I feel like Stamina shouldn’t exist, I feel the weapon, shield, and bow limit shouldn’t exist or there should be a place where you can store most your items somewhere which I think games like Minecraft and Skyrim let you do.

Breath of the Wild does things that are new for a “Zelda” game. And I put “Zelda” in quotes because alot of the things it does have already been done before in other games. Minecraft and Skyrim as I’ve mentioned have some similarities with inventory management, open-world…oh excuse me, open-air…

I love Myiamoto but regarding his comment of this not being open-world and this is the first open-air game……No.

Sadly I don’t think Breath of the Wild is as innovative as people say or think it is.

OK so I know you’re probably not happy with my critique, and I understand that many many people are very passionate fans of Zelda; I mean I’m one of them; look at what I’ve done. You can’t say I’m not a good Zelda fan when I’ve made 3 animated shows over 13 years.

I wrote more than I intended and there’s plenty more I want to write, but my score right now is an 8 out of 10 which I think is fair. That’s like a B+. It’s not the worst score ever in the world so don’t flip out.

The absolute worst aspect of Breath of the Wild for me is how long it took to be released. I don’t want Zelda games to take 5 to 6 years a piece, but that’s what we’ve come to, and just because they take that long does not mean it’ll be the greatest game ever. I think a great idea would be to make a sequel to Wind Waker with the Wind Waker HD assets and make a new game out of it. It wouldn’t take very long and we’d have a new game with reused assets which would cut down on development time. Majora’s Mask did it and it’s considered the best Zelda game by some people.

I will continue to play Breath of the Wild. I will probably do a vlog review of what my overall breakdown of the game is, and then I’ll probably remove it after alot of the feedback, so enjoy it while it’s there.

I thought this was worth posting about. My friend Scoot has publicly launched a new website that contains all his works and I wanted to share it on my site since I’ve wanted to see him make a big comeback.

http://www.u-s.studio/

Please give him a visit, and from what I’ve heard his new episode will be coming soon so I hope to see it.

On a side note I’m looking to make a new layout for zeldalinkedgreen.com mostly because this layout is having weird glitches.

 

The Episode is going pretty well. I know it’s almost been a year since the last episode, but seeing as how this is the last battle for the series, and there are many fights to wrap up, I hope you’ll forgive me. As I’ve mentioned a little that I’m also working on a book for SpikerMan. I’m in the second draft, and making notes for what to add in the third draft, and I will soon have a sample chapter ready.

Some of these images are repeats, but I’ve not posted them here. Sadly I don’t think I can reveal any thing more than this without it going into spoiler territory.

Thank you again for your patience and support.

Ok so I got very very sick the last time…so let’s try again.

The live stream will consist of marathoning all my shows: Hero Returns, Coolo Eclipso, and Seven Dark Sorcerers on February 3rd and 4th at 2pm central time on both days.

They’ll be streamed on my youtube channel www.youtube.com/spikerman

During the stream we will have short breaks where I cut to myself taking questions in the comments, we may have Skype calls, and we will have give away items.

You must have a youtube account to comment, and when I start a giveaway I will give instructions to the commenters to say something, and I will pick someone at random. The person I pick will send me a private message with their address information so I can mail the give away item to them.

Hopefully it’ll all work, and I’ll see you then.

There’s no earthly way of knowing…
Which direction we are going…

Special thanks to Nick who voices Ghirahim for helping with this trailer. Nick sings the Wily Wonka Tunnel song which I really wanted for this trailer and he did a perfect job.

Thanks Nick!

 

My plans changed a little. I’m a lot more burned out from creating than I thought. Instead of working on a new comic/animation I’ve been uploading the old Episodes of Seven Dark Sorcerers to youtube again. I was very reluctant at first due to all the copyright problems Youtube is having, however I’ve received a few requests to put the episodes to youtube, so this is my attempt to bring them back. Hopefully they won’t get taken down this time.

The list is not finished, but it will be updated throughout the next few weeks, I’ll post on twitter when a new episode is added to the list.

Let’s talk about Episode 31.

 

I’m very happy with how the episode turned out overall, and from what I can tell many people are happy as well. So we’re all happy. Now for the not-so-happy news. There are two episodes left in total, and I know that sounds disappointing to all of you, but I’ve said it many a times that I should have stopped making Zelda cartoons a long time ago. I have no plans to make another Zelda series, and you know, if I wanted, this could go on forever and ever, and I feel if it did it would eventually become stale and boring and I would run out of ideas of what to do.

If you’re still sad or frustrated that the end is coming soon…I was never the right man for the job. I tried my best to give the Zelda community a serious Zelda animated show, and whether I succeeded or not, I tried, and I think I came the closest someone could.

Episode 32 may be about as long as this episode was, and believe it or not there are STILL things to spoil. The next episode has one big moment that changes everything and it’s a moment that you’ll never forget, so look forward to that. I’m going to work on this and the comic and I am praying and hoping for a release for Episode 32 in August. I hope the comic will tide you over until then.

 

Young Link has been lied to. The mastermind behind the Seven Dark Sorcerers will finally be revealed, and everyone will learn the price of revenge.

First of all this is 52 minutes long. I am both proud and somewhat apologetic, as I didn’t even know it was that long until last night. Length aside, I really hope that this is received well as I worked harder on this episode than a few past ones combined.

Overall I’m happy how this episode turned out, and I do realize it’s flaws, there may be parts that are frustrating regarding the pacing, or moments that are silly, but it doesn’t bother me too much. I think what bothered me most was trying to get a smooth 30fps at 1080p at the very end because there were a lot of technical difficulties; some I had literally never seen before and didn’t think were even possible. I hope you enjoy.
