1987 Silver: When Zelda Came to America

Looking back at the list of titles that graced 8-bit consoles (and PCs) in 1987, you find that's it's a veritable parade of first entries in what would in time go on to either greatly influence gaming or spawn literally dozens of sequels between them. This is the year that modern video gaming was born, as simple left-to-right platforming was starting to experience previously unseen variations and mutations, while the standard bearers of fighting games and RPGs experienced their genesis. Take a look back at some of these classic titles celebrating their 25th anniversary as part of the 1987 Silver series on MTV Multiplayer.

You can find earlier entries in this series here.

History

Shigeru Miyamoto didn't think the original The Legend of Zelda for the Famicom was going to be much of a success. Miyamoto, who was director and producer on the first game worried that it was both "very plain

Jean Giraud, "Moebius," 1938 - 2012

Self-portrait, 1973, via Ray Pride

"Today is an incredibly sad day for fans of comic books, concept art, and downright anything science fiction," writes Cyriaque Lamar at io9. "Artist Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, who provided some of the most stunning scifi and fantasy art ever to grace a page, has succumbed to illness at the age of 74…. In addition to providing concept art for such films as Alien, Tron, The Abyss, Masters of the Universe, The Fifth Element, and Willow (which was awesome albeit unused), the artist provided concept art for El Topo director Alejandro Jodorowsky's never-realized Dune adaptation, which was to star Mick Jagger and boast a soundtrack by Pink Floyd. Jodorowsky was a frequent comic collaborator with Moebius. Together they worked on the must-read, gloriously nutbar space opera The Incal (which was chock full of evil space eggs and virtuous giant jellyfish) and the screwball divine pregnancy tale The Madwoman of the Sacred Heart.

Review of Blood: The Last Vampire

Year: 2009

Directors: Chris Nahon

Writers: Kenji Kamiyama & Katsuya Terada & Chris Chow

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: cyberhal

Rating: 5.5 out of 10

Saya is a 400 year old demon killer. She is cleverly disguised as a hot 16 year old Japanese schoolgirl (Korean actress, Gianna). Brilliant disguise. Blood the Last Vampire is the latest action thriller from the French director Chris Nahon, and is a live remake of the I.G. Production’s popular 2000 manga animation of the same title. Blood’s a movie with several stylishly atmospheric scenes, from subways to period military bases. You’ve also got to love a girl who survives by drinking blood from bottles that are delivered in brown paper bags and are kept in the fridge. In fact, we never see the blood in the bottle, only the red on her lips, which is a great way of showing that Saya herself is ashamed of her
