The Gaming Brit presents...Top 10 Games of E3 2012
Well, E3 2012 is over and done with. It came and went with little of value, and sadly overall the conferences were lacklustre and failed to impress for the most part. However, there were a few titles that managed to separate themselves from the "violent FPS" or "family-friendly fitiness game" mold and actually presented something fun and/fresh for a change.
Watch on, as The Gaming Brit looks back at the few titles that managed to worm their way into his black, shrivelled heart and actually impress him.
This is an add-on for gmod where you essentially ride an elevator up through 28 floors and randomly-generated events occur on each floor. Do you have what it takes to make it through all the floors, or will you chicken out and close the program before you reach the top?
The greatest quest of all time begins. This...is Elevator Source!
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword [Final Thoughts]
I actually had a few more things to bring up here, but the video was long enough as is so I had to cut a bunch of it out.
As such, here it is in text form:
- The Sky is possibly the most boring overworld in the whole franchise (yes, even more so than the one in Spirit Tracks which is nothing more than a background for the most part). There's barely anything to see and do, and the lack of visual flair really makes flying a chore.
- While the environments themselves are decent, having everything cut off and segmented into separate areas really killed the exploration vibe that usual makes Zelda so fun to play. I appreciate them having you do something different on each screen to make up for this, but it's a tad disappointing overall.
- The bosses were great and were definitely one of the highlights of the game for me. Dungeon-wise it's rather so-so for the most part (except for my favourite, Ancient Cistern). I brought this point up in the playthrough itself a lot so I thought I'd leave this for the video description.
And that's pretty much Skyward Sword in a nutshell. Can't really say what'd I'd want from the next Zelda, although I think it wouldn't be a good idea for them to go with Motion Plus again. Make one that utilises the Wii U Gamepad to organise your items more effectively and I think you've got a winner. Everything else would just be gravy, really!
The hour of fate draws nigh, and with Zelda's life hanging in the balance Link is now all that stands between the Lord of Darkness and his complete domination of both the surface and sky. With his Master Sword glowing with the might of Hylia herself, Link steps boldy forward into the darkness and confronts his enemy. Will the Hero of Legend live to see another day, or will evil finally triumph?
Watch on, as The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword reaches its dramatic conclusion!
One final trial lies between Link and the fabled object he seeks, and with Fi by his side, it seems that he is ready to prove himself once and for all. Does he have the power needed to drive back the darkness and claim his prize? The wisdom to know the correct path to take? And, most importantly, does he possess the courage necessary to see his journey through to its ultimate conclusion?
It's time for all the answers to be revealed. Let the final trial commence!
Having forged the Master Sword and saved Zelda from the threat of The Imprisoned, Link sets out find the fabled Dragons in order to learn the "Song of the Hero". But with evil lurking behind every corner, does Link have the strength of heart to complete the melody before time runs out?
Continuing on his quest to power up the Goddess Sword, Link travels to the Fire Sanctuary in the Eldin region in order to collect the third and final Sacred Flame. Will our hero succeed and find the power he needs to save Zelda, or will the heat of the volcano be too much for him to bear?
***Since this playthrough was created using the original livestream recording, the video quality is significantly downgraded compared to our usual content (any slow-down or stutter is a result of the stream capture). Thanks for reading, and we hope you enjoy the playthrough!***
We may have beaten Darkrai, but there's still a lot of Pokemon left to befriend and secrets to unveil. Let's get to it!
