Yeah, I know. Skrillex game channels The Legend of Zelda. Seems like it might be bad, or at least, haphazard. But as it turns out, Skrillex Quest, a new browser game, is really pretty cool. It comes as something less of a surprise considering that it comes from Jason Oda, the same guy who brought us that amazing Perfect Strangers game.

The setup is interesting: A golden NES cartridge has gotten a piece of dust in it, and as a result the game within has become corrupted and covered with glitches. You, the protagonist, must take your sword and fight through a series of rooms in an effort to defeat the glitches inside the game. All the while, Skrillex music plays.

The whole thing comes together well: the glitches are chaotic and colorful, and the music and cued sound effects work. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this promotional browser-based Skrillex game is totally worth your time.

When did it like become cool to hate dubstep.

Or is it just one of the things you have to do if you wanna be cool on the internet.

IE: Be or love bronies, hate Black Ops and all FPS's, love all retro games, hate Twilight (not that I love it or anything, its just that it sold millions, gotta be something there).

Anyway that was pretty fun.
