Link's Crossbow Training screens

Link's Crossbow Training screens

Developed specifically for the Wii Zapper peripheral, Link's Crossbow Training from Nintendo is back today with these fifteen new images. It will be sold with the gun December 7, 2007 in Europe. I can assure you the game does look better in reality than these shots *shrug*.

Looks Nice, for a mini-game.

Looks pretty crappy. Also it's kind of fun to see nintendo whoring out one of their more loved licenses just to sell a plastic handle for the wiimote. Yay nintendo!

Nintendo are all about shitty mini games every since the Wii came about, glad I don't own one

I´ve seen Link´s crossbow training videos in 480 resolution and the game looks nice, like Twilight Princess more or less. There´s no need to judge the game for those screens looking like crap.

I don't care it looks like shit in the screens, but how long can I stand shooting arrows at stuff?
What does this game do that House of the Dead doesn't?
Will I play it for ten minutes and then trade it for cigarettes?

It's just more like an excuse to buy the damn thing, and have something to try it on.

Like when you had just enough $ for a console, but not the games right away, and no fuckin' Demo disk packed in... all before the wonders of internet.

It's not a "real game" or with a "real pourpose", but it's not meant to have/be in the first place. A familiar face(link) built into it, is a nice touch.

This is nothing new, nintendo has been screwing gamers over with their god damn peripherals since the gameboy. Gameboy>gameboy pocket>gameboy color they are all the same, but hey, of course you want the new one, right? And all the magnifyers, lightsources and plastic cases for the games. Gba? Need i mention the SP ocr Mircro? DS? How long before a DS lite DX is out? The light has been out there for a while, so i'll give it a month or two. Then we have genoius inventions like the gba link cable. Want to play your new game? Get four GBAs and a couple of cables then!

Meh, nintendo sucks in general. They make a good game every now and then, but that's about it. Also, they have like 3 licenses that they made in 85 (mario, zelda, metroid) and that's all they ever do. Ever. Maybe some platforming, some golf or tennis but it's always freaking Mario.

Ok, i think my "i hate nintendo" rant is over now. I needed to blow off some steam :P

I recently saw a commercial for some lame ass vision training thing for the DS. I'm really starting to lose faith in Nintendo. I just wish all the third parties would avoid them so I can stop buying their hardware just for a few games :(

The "few" games that matter, are still by a long shot, made by Nintendo. So...

these pics are horrible! Who scan these? The game looks beautiful...unlike these pics, so dont judge the game off this. I cant believe there are people retarded enough to think the game looks like these crappy scans! No offence to the person who scaned these but, there are better scans of this area in the game somewhere Im sure. Just look the game up or buy it since its out now.

About the game

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (7 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (7 Hours ago)

    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (10 Hours ago)

    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (10 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (10 Hours ago)
