10 Ways to Improve The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for 3DS

June 24, 2010 Games 6 Comments

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is frequently referred to as the greatest video game of all time, and rightfully so. Ocarina brought Hyrule to life with stunning polygonal graphics and revolutionary controls. Now, nearly 12 years since its release, comes word that this beloved game is being remade for the Nintendo 3DS.

With the madness of E3 2010 receding into the past, it’s time to take a hard look at Ocarina of Time in its original form, assess the hints we’ve been given so far with regards to its 3DS remake, and ponder the possibilities. What follows is my wishlist for the upcoming 3DS version of Ocarina of Time.

UPDATED: Predictions for Nintendo’s E3 2010 Conference

June 19, 2010 Games 1 Comment


Here we are, looking back at E3 2010, and it’s safe to say Nintendo’s conference was a stunner. I’m a little surprised at how well my predictions went down, considering how hopeful they were. I managed to score 10/50. Have a look below to see what I got right.

Original article:

June 15, 2010 will see Nintendo launch a new era, that’s for certain. We already know that the company will be showing off the 3DS and, most likely, Zelda Wii, but the highly secretive company hasn’t said much else. Being just 10 days from the historic moment, and unable to contain my excitement any longer, I’ve decided to throw together my official predictions for Nintendo’s E3 2010 conference.

I’ve divided my predictions into two sections: DS/3DS and Wii. Each section is ranked from most likely to happen to least likely.

Games in Review #2 – Operation Darkness

May 29, 2010 Games No Comments

Welcome once again to Games in Review, featuring reviews, evaluations, and general commentaries for games that I, Weskimo, have completed.

This week, I decided to go with 2008’s tactical RPG Operation Darkness for the XBox 360.


I was really quite interested in the story of this game. It bases itself around World War II, visiting cities, events and battles of the war. Through the eyes of a British SAS squad, it creates a sideline story around the general progression of the war, including, most notably, the secret world of Vampires and Werewolves.  You get to kill Nazis AND use Werewolves to kill Vampires!?  Sign me up.

Games in Review #1 – Suikoden

May 1, 2010 Games 3 Comments

Welcome to Games in Review, Shufflingdead’s newest semi-regular segment! Games in Review will feature a review, evaluation, and general commentary for games that I, Weskimo, have completed.

I’ve been trying to decide which game to make my topic for my first written review for a while now, and I finally decided that it only makes sense to use one of my favorite games. This is also to partially dispel the idea that Shufflingdead only reviews games to dump on them and piss off as much of the internet as possible. Well, fanboys, good news. I don’t hate Suikoden.


Suikoden is a fairly standard RPG released in 1996 for the PlayStation. The story follows the path of the son of a famous Imperial General, General Teo. The hero starts to work for this empire like his father, and quickly finds himself confronted by cruelty, corruption, and betrayal. After only 2 days under imperial payroll, he’s on the run from the law, with only a pair of bodyguards to aid him. Desperate, he enlists himself with an underground resistance movement and winds up as the leader of a major rebellion against the empire that his friends and family serve so loyally.
