A Happy Aside

I've been absent awhile, but I thought I should link this to get it more exposure (however little that may be at this point, ha ha!).

Apparently, Zelda: Skyward Sword is inspired by the impressionists' paintings, specifically Paul C├ęzanne. Fine art inspiration is pretty much the reason why I made this blog. I absolutely love these kinds of connections. Mostly because I'm such a sucker for video games that unabashedly go out of their way to create a specific atmosphere. Video games should be fearless. The ones that are (not always, but often times) usually the better ones, in my opinion. Anyways, here's some related linkage...meanwhile I need to finish my Team Ico post.

Kill Screen - Visual Games - Another Legend of Zelda 

Kotaku - Zelda Skyward Sword Is Inspired By...dead French painters?

Let's meet at the next Save Point!

P.S. First post of 2011, whoo!
