Retro Monday: Zelda: Majora's Mask (BEN Edition/N64)

Now this is an interesting one. Stuck for ideas for our frankly MARVELLOUS Retro Monday column, I stumbled across this today. Kotaku pointed me in it's direction, and it's AWESOME.

Basically a new age horror story involving a copy of Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 64, with a mind of it's own. Anyone who's ever played the classic Zelda game knows that at the best of times it always had slightly creepy undertones, this fleshes it out with a little back story, and a whole lot of well-written prose.

It's a LOT to read, so I'm not going to waffle on, but it is worth it. A really interesting tale for anyone with a penchant for the mysterious, and a taste for Zelda.

The whole article is here, and the Youtube videos of the footage also accompany the article. I strongly advise reading it first, as it makes it all the more spooky.
