During my four-hour visit to the birthplace of the Real Doll, the frighteningly life-like full-body sex toy, I've seen mounds of silicone vaginas, sheets of detached nipples, headless women hanging from meat hooks, a 2-foot penis and skulls with removable faces that attach like refrigerator magnets.Now, as we sit in the dim light of his R&D room, staring at his latest creation, Matt Mc Mullen, the founder of Abyss Creations (the parent company behind the Real Doll), nonchalantly turns to me and says, "All I see is potential."For a man poised to bring millennia of male desire to life, Mc Mullen, a small but striking figure who looks like a reformed industrial rocker, is surprisingly calm.At the time, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma emphasized how you can travel anywhere in Zelda's new open world and how that thinking would challenge series conventions."As soon as [the old barriers] are removed, you can enter any area from any direction," he explained "so the puzzle solving in this game begins the moment the player starts to think about where they want to go, how they will get there, and what they will do when they arrive." "This is a clean break from the conventions of past games in the Zelda series," Aonuma said, "where you had to play through a set path and finish the scenario in the right order." We saw Zelda again at the Game Awards 2014, where Aonuma and Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto demonstrated live gameplay of the Legend of Zelda.
