This latest batch of screens for Link's Crossbow Training
- the game set to be bundled with the Wii Zapper when it launches in December
- has got SPOnG thinking. Dangerous territory indeed.
Namely, we're not convinced that a crossbow's the best weapon for fighting skeletons. There are, after all, lots of gaps to shoot through. Given that the blighters are improbably animated and don't need muscles (or any internal organs) to move around, taking chunks of bone off them (instead of making them bleed out or what have you) might not do too much damage, anyway. Wouldn't that sword Link always carries around be more useful?
Anyway, enough thinking for one year. We're thinking about doing it again next summer. Dig in.
