Few titles in video game history are held in as high regard as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. First released for the Nintendo 64 in 1998, Ocarina of Time was an instant classic, loved by all who played it and critically acknowledged for setting new standards in gameplay.
Although the title has since been rereleased on the GameCube and the Wii Virtual Console, the new Nintendo 3DS version marks the first time that the classic has received a significant update, with overhauled visuals, sharp motion controls, and a video hint system breathing new life into Link's definitive adventure.

Ocarina of Time is out this Thursday on the Nintendo 3DS.
From wholesome puzzles to paranormal shooters, this week also marks the release of Warner Bros' Fear 3. Hot on the heels of Fear 2, the game returns players to the protagonist of the original game--the genetically designed supersoldier Point Man. While the horror elements may not be enough to keep you up at night (see what we say in our review here), we have it on good authority that the game's cooperative campaign provides plenty of good thrills and satisfying gameplay.
Fear 3 is out this Wednesday on the Xbox 360, PC, and the PlayStation 3.
