Zelda: Phantom Hour Glass

I have become a Zelda fan at my advanced age. As I said in a previous post, I don't know how I missed playing Zelda through all of its iterations. Here is some video of the upcoming game for the Nintendo DS. Notice they are keeping the Windwalker style cell shading. It seems to work well for the DS. I have read that the entire game was going to be played by using the stylus. I am not sure I am on board with that one, but I am not about to second guess Nintendo on control schemes at this point.

Super Ghouls and Ghosts for the Wii Virtual Console

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom

The third game in the legendary Ghosts 'n Goblins series of video games, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts follows Arthur in another quest to rescue the princess, his fair maiden and damsel in distress at large. Players take control of Arthur and defeat the creatures of the night to save the day once more. Discover what glory awaits those brave enough to take on the armies of Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts.

Age Rating:

This is one of my all time favorite platformers. It is incredibly difficult, but still very addictive. Part of the strategy is knowing what weapon to have in certain situations. The twitch factor is high and you really need to be paying attention or you will die fast. Nintendo did a good job with this one. The graphics look great and the controls are smooth and responsive on the Wii Classic Controller. If you are a fan of platformers, this is a must buy.
