  1. I thought I’d come here because it’s technically a crossover. I know about these CD-I games because of some other Channel Awesome video but I never knew there was anything else to this game besides the cutscenes. I thought it was a point and click adventure game with the cutscenes this whole time. O.O Also, I liked those Room references.

  2. Yeah, I love Zelda games but I don’t know if I need to experience these particular ones first hand. I’m content observing from a safe distance, they look physically painful to play.

    That animation is just mesmerizingly awful. I can only imagine what Miyamoto and the other nintendo execs of the time were thinking.

    You know, come to think of it, I don’t actually mind Zelda’s “Good” line upon the Wizard’s death. It’s the kind of thing a badass 90s action hero would say. Simple, and to the point. She’d ideally light up a smoke afterwards, tossing it into some bullet riddled oil drums setting the whole place ablaze.

  3. Michaud: Doug, our website is under attack by the evil forces of Allison. I’m going to take action.

    Doug: But Michaud what if something happens?

    Michaud: I have a response to protect me-I mean this company. And if no one agrees to it, kill the forums, blogs and store.

    Doug: Rob!

    Rob: Don’t worry Doug, my Facebook page promises that we are Fucked!
