Started playing 3D dot game heroes yesterday, with my hero named Link. Made my own model for Link too, but I wasn’t satisfied with it… I posted a video earlier showing someone else’s model, which was much more on the money. As it turns out, the video itself had a download link for their model, and instructions on how to install it, so I used their model… though I tweaked the colors a bit to be more on par with the real NES Link sprite.
Sharing some snapshots I took of my quest.
Once again guys, if you like classic Zelda, you have got to give this game a try. It’s dropped in price considerably where I’m from.
Since the PS4 is coming out very soon, we decided to make a list of some of our favorite PS3 games and why we like them. You should definitely play a few of these before moving to the next gen. If there’s a game that you think should be added to the list, drop a message and we’ll add it.
Way back in 2009, there was a game coming out for the PS3 called 3D Dot Game Heroes. It was essentially a love letter to the original Zelda and other 8-bit fantasy titles of the day with 3D pixel graphics. I fell in love with it as soon as I heard about it.
While reading about it on various blogs, I heard of a 3D Dot character making web app called Q-Block. I then proceeded to go nuts making characters.

The more I created, the more my sanity slipped further and further into the abyss summoned by my creative drive. I wanted to be more detailed, more intricate…
Pyramid Head was summoned. But no, he wasn’t the only hell-spawn to be brought to the mortal realm!
NIGHTMARE VISIONS OF DEATH AND CHAOS!!!!
My mind was gone, slipped into a dark black soup whose contents were so deep and dark I could only guess whether I was being groped by hungry skinless limbs or just soggy crackers. The soup was all there was. It needed salt.
But then a Dudebro Spaceman showed up and saved me. Woop Woo.
He wasn’t just ANY Dudebro Spaceman. He was the FIRST Dudebro Spaceman. (Can’t use the word Space and the word Marine too closely together, or else a big tabletop gaming company might get angry and sic armies of little intricately painted lawyers on me) A Proto…space..dude..NEVERMIND I’m bored now.
Anywho, the game eventually came out and I decided that I would like my little dude to look like Mega Man! Check him out! Innit he just so freakin’ adorbz!
For reaching 200 followers, I figured why not celebrate with a little goodwill and do a giveaway. I’ve got a copy of 3D Dot Game Heroes (with case and manual) that’s looking for a home. Maybe it can be YOURS?

Keep in mind that I am not Tumblr famous in the slightest and the prize is not humongous, so there will probably be very few reblogs. Thus, BIG CHANCE TO WIN.
Aaaand just for some shameless self-promotion, here’s some other Tumblrs I run (which I will also be reblogging this post from)
3D Dot Game Heroes is a sick game. I picked it up for $12 at my local Game Stop and it’s probably the most Zelda-like experience you’ll get on the PS3. I recommend it to anyone who has a PS3 and wants that classic action/adventure style of gameplay.
