Coming Soon! 8/13/2012 – ish

How does that saying go? One is random. Two is a coincidence. Three is a pattern. Well, starting with two weeks ago with Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream, Drop, Distance and its following week of just one release, we’re seeing an odd pattern of one big week followed by a small, dead week before repeating again.

Coming Soon! 4/30/2012

Given all the great, and really long, Role Playing Games that came out in the past months, I could really use another week’s worth of gaming break just to play catch up. Couldn’t you? I know I could given how much stuff there is to do in Xenoblade Chronicles. And I haven’t even touched Skyrim yet. If you must play something new this week, I’ve got two options for you.

A Zelda II FPS??

Yes, you read that right. Gamrfeed (via N4G) posted a link to a free, in-browser version of Zelda II remade as a first person adventure. It’s not the full game, it’s just up to the first boss Horsehead. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is the oddball of the Zelda series, with it’s side scrolling, experience points, and focus on action. But I was a huge fan of the game and I didn’t hesitate to try it out.
