Fans have ported Ocarina of Time to PC

Zelda: Ocarina of Time PC port opening cinematic

Enterprising fans have completed a PC port of the iconic Nintendo 64 adventure The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is already spreading across the internet.

The port features higher resolutions, ultra-wide support, keyboard and mouse input, force feedback, gyroscope aiming, and even mod support.

  • PC port is based on reverse-engineered code
  • Similar to the Super Mario 64 PC port from 2019
  • Mods allow easy replacement and modification of original assets
  • Work is underway on Majora’s Mask, which is about 45% decompiled

Own copy: The team behind the port uses software called Ship of Harkinian, which extracts assets from what the team insists must be a legally sourced ROM of the original game.

HD upgrade: The extracted assets are then used to build the final playable version of the PC port, meaning the PC port's source code does not include any assets from the game, it is simply a reimplementation of the game logic. The developers, going by the name Harbour Masters, hope this will dissuade Nintendo's lawyers.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land reviews

Kirby and the Forgotten Land gameplay

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is out for Switch this week, the 17th game in the main series and the first in full 3D – just in time for the pink glutton's 30th anniversary. What do the critics have to say about this cutesy love letter to vore?

Review round-up

  • Destructoid (Score 9.5/10) – ”Forgotten Land is easily one of my favorite entries in the series, and possibly my top game outside of Kirby Super Star”
  • Wccftech (Score 9.5/10) – ”…Forgotten Land truly is the pink one’s Super Mario 64 or Zelda: Ocarina of Time, so puff out a sigh of relief and eat heartily”
  • Nintendo Insider (Score 9/10) – ”A stride in the right direction and what easily ranks as one of Kirby’s best adventures to date”
  • Game Informer (Score 9/10) – ”Isn’t quite the pink puff’s rendition of Super Mario 64, but it brings the series successfully into the 3D realm”
  • Nintendo Life (Score 9/10) – ”A great big colourful joyride of an adventure for our little pink pal”
  • TheSixthAxis (Score 9/10) – ”Makes Kirby's jump to 3D feel effortless, but it's much more than that”
  • IGN (Score 8/10) – ”Successfully warps the series’ classic mix of ability-based combat, platforming, and secret hunting into the third dimension”
  • VGC (Score 4/5) – ”The platforming won’t give Mario any restless nights, but the exuberant creativity around it makes for a bold, buoyant adventure”

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delayed until spring next year

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delay teaser

You won't be killing the Justice League this year after all, since Rocksteady just announced that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is delayed until spring next year.

“I know a delay is frustrating but that time is going into making the best game we can. I look forward to bringing the chaos to Metropolis together,” said studio boss Sefton Hill.

Flying solo: In the meantime, you can enjoy WB Games' Gotham Knights in October, which probably needs a bit of space to breathe lest it be overwhelmed by Rocksteady's latest opus.

Metropolis: Suicide Squad is the next generation of Rocksteady's Arkham universe, and is an open-world co-op game starring Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark.

What was the first King’s Field game released internationally?

ANSWER: King’s Field II!

It's tempting to imagine that the Dark Souls games simply sprang into existence one day, but they're actually the product of a long evolution starting with FromSoftware's King's Field series on PlayStation. The 3D dungeon crawler was both slow-paced and incredibly difficult and proved polarizing in both Japan and the United States.

King's Field II, renamed to just King's Field in the US, was the first time the series ventured across the ocean. It did not receive a warm welcome, but Dark Souls fans might find it worth fighting through its sluggishness to understand more about how FromSoftware's unique design philosophy came to be.

Quick heads up to let you know that Far Cry 6 is now free to play across all platforms until the 27th of March, which is celebrating the Stranger Things crossover mission.
