A select few -amazingly lucky- individuals have been chosen by Nintendo of America to be given the chance to play The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for 48 hours next week over Halloween. Among the chosen is none other than Matt Casamassina of IGN. He has this to say about this opportunity:

“Rest assured that I plan to play my ass off. I will, in fact, refuse food and drink (okay, food) and erase sleep from my routine. This is going to be a long, epic, and hopefully amazing game, and I don’t want to waste any of my precious hours with it.”

Matt assumes that he will be given the chance to play the full version of the game. He will write about his first hand impression of the game next week when his adventure is complete. In the meantime I am in the same boat as you all in that we must wait until the bitter end to dunk our hands into this master piece of polygons and pixels.
