GI Show 233: Dying Light, Life Is Strange, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

This week, we tackle a gruesome open-world zombie hit, a time-twisting adventure, and the reinvention of a Nintendo classic.

First up is Dying Light, Dead Island creator Techland's new zombie franchise. It's certainly based off Techland's past work, but takes the zombie genre in new directions with a more serious tone, parkour-influenced traversal, and intense action and storytelling. Host Matt Helgeson is joined by Game Informer's Brian Shea and Jeff Marchiafava, who tell us all about it.

In the second segment, we talk about the first installment of Dontnod's episodic adventure game. Dontnod's Remember Me was an interesting, yet flawed title, and Life is Strange takes some of the best elements while implementing better mechanics – and tackling some genuinely edgy issues. Reviewer Kim Wallace stops by along with Ben Reeves and Ben Hanson.

Finally, Kyle Hilliard and Ben Reeves talk about The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, the excellent new remake of the classic action/RPG. It's the best version of Majora's Mask to date, making it perfect for those who've never played it or veterans looking for a much-improved trip down memory lane.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Has New Live-Action Commercial

A new TV spot for the Majora's Mask remake has a cool retro vibe.

The commercial, which was posted by Nintendo's UK branch, definitely takes you back to the old days, right down to the portenteous voiceovers and music. The game releases in the U.S. on February 13 (Friday the 13th).

Watch Our Hour Long Live Stream Of The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS

Yesterday, we streamed the first hour of The Legend of Zelda 3D side by side with the original Nintendo 64 version of the game.

You can watch the archived stream on Twitch by heading here, or you can check out the YouTube archive of the stream below. During the stream Andrew Reiner, Wade Wojcik, and myself played through the opening hour of the new Majora's Mask on 3DS and the original Nintendo 64 release simultaneously and shared our memories of our three days in Termina, talked about some of the changes for the remake, and commiserated over the poor shape of our Nintendo 64 vault copy of Majora's Mask.

Replay – The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

With Nintendo's announcement of the 3DS remake of Link's creepiest adventure, we decided to look back at the original.

Released shortly after the groundbreaking Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask reuses characters and assets from the first 3D Zelda title to create the surreal, dreamlike world of Termina. It makes everything feel just a little bit off in Clock Town, and that's before you look up to see the moon eyeing the clock tower as a landing zone.

Join myself, Andrew Reiner, Jeff Marchiafava, and Wade Wojcik, who has spent a lot of time in Termina, as we relive Majora's Mask's three days.

Legend of Grimrock 2

Legend of Grimrock 2 launched fairly quietly about a week ago. The sequel to the successful 2012 dungeon crawler, Grimrock 2 seems to improve and expand on nearly every aspect of the first game without sacrificing any of the classic exploration, combat, and puzzle solving that defined it. Probably the biggest change is the inclusion of expansive outdoor environments – whereas Grimrock 1 took place entirely underground inside dark dungeons and caverns, Grimrock 2 let’s you explore the surface of the Isle of Nex, traversing opulent beaches, forests, and other outdoor locales. Monster AI is also noticeably improved, and though the combat retains the “dance-like” quality of Grimrock 1, it’s not as easy to lead opponents around the same four tiles without getting hit. Monsters are more likely to anticipate and dodge your attacks, and are less inclined to walk into the range of your weapons. New races, new classes, an upgraded skills system, and a friendlier UI round out a list of improvements that should please fans who were satisfied with the original.
