Raise your hands if you're looking forward to the 3D remake of Link's Awakening

Hmmm ... I don't see many hands.

Well, read this article and watch this teaser trailer and then tell me you aren't looking forward to the fan-made remake of this GameBoy/GameBoy Color classic.

In the meantime, shake your ass (or at least laugh your ass off) to this classic commercial--used (in Japan) to promote the 1991 release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past:

I know, I should have posted an ad for Link's Awakening instead. Here's a rather hilarious one for anyone interested.

I've been reading along, but my commenter is broken at work...something about an update that was installed on all the PCs made about 80% of blogger's comments sections completely unusable to me. That's a drag, considering I do most of my reading while at work.

But I'm here, and the post you did about 8 Bit Christmas music is going live tomorrow. I'm trying to get to some of the backlog of your posts and pull some stuff for HL form there.

Anywho...I'd LOVE a remake of Links Awakening. Maybe then I might finish it.

Hey Justin! I've been wondering where you were. No worries at all--comment when you can (and when you feel like it, obviously). And if you can't--that's OK too!

That's great that you're posting more of these comments on that games site you work for (don't kill me--I can't remember the name!). It isn't too much work for you, is it? I certainly don't want you doing all of that if it is.

As for the Link's Awakening remake--I'm completely stoked. Sure, I wish the folks at Nintendo were handling it, but this guy seems to be doing a great job, too. I'll take whatever I can get :)
