    The "Official" Timeline and the Implications for Later Games

    The other night, I watched GameTrailer's "Timeline" episode on Zelda, and it made me think about a few things I hadn't really thought about before, and it got me wondering what possibilities this presents for future games. 1. The "Fallen Hero Timeline" First, let's look at the nature of...

    First Shiny Pokemon?

    I had a shiny Magby hatch from the daycare egg in my Crystal game. Then I restarted the game because I didn't know about shinies >.< Although the next time I legitimately found a shiny, I ended up somehow finding two in the same day (Pidgey and Tentacruel).

    Voice Acting--in Hylian?

    It wouldn't necessarily have to be full voice acting. After all, Zelda sang in Skyward Sword, but said nothing past that. It could just be certain parts of the game that were voiced, like cutscenes. Was Super Mario Sunshine "ruined" by voice acting? Also, SuperMetroid, that's a valid...

    Voice Acting--in Hylian?

    Voice acting in the Zelda series has been a big debate for a while. A lot of people say that the series is behind the times for not including it. Others say that it would kill the series. Then there's the fact that any voicing would be done in Japanese, and a translation to English or other...

    Do You Think a Steampunk Themed Zelda Game Would Be Good?

    I think that it could be amazing. I'm not saying that it would be amazing, but it could be. Final Fantasy was a medieval fantasy series, but started shifting to the use of more futuristic elements around Final Fantasy VI. VII was heavily steampunk in style, and the latest games are even...

    Pronouncing "Onox"?

    There's a good chance the name is derived from Onyx, which I believe would be pronounced ON-niks. Although I think that the exact pronunciation of the second syllable, whether you use a short "I" sound, a short "O" sound, or even something similar a short "U" sound, would vary depending on dialect.

    Majora's Mask Love It? Hate It? Love-Hate?

    Majora's Mask is my favorite game of all time, so obviously, I'm going to say that I love it. Yes, the save system is frustrating and the game is difficult as a result, but from an artistic and/or storytelling perspective, it's a masterpiece. It has some very deep themes and tells a story that...

    Which Ganondorf is Your Favorite?

    I personally prefer the Wind Waker Ganondorf, just because I always appreciate character development. The Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess Ganondorfs always seemed a bit too "evil just because" to me. Wind Waker Ganondorf had motivation and was actually a relatively sympathetic character.

    Video Games As Art?

    I think that they're excellent examples of art. It's just that most people making them don't quite know what they're doing. The gameplay and story are often separate, and a lot of potential is wasted. Personally, a lot of small games are a lot more artistic. For example, check out "Today I...

    Happy Meal Cost 28 Rupees?

    That would explain why Link's able to find so much money on the ground and lying around in people's houses--it's just spare change people have dropped!

    Sexuality in Zelda

    In my opinion, the games are best as they are. There's already a ton of implied romance, and the wonderful thing about the series is that you can often read into a romance or a lack of romance yourself. It goes along with the "Link as a link between game and player" mindset that the...

    Zelda Art The Legend of Zelda: Urban Legacy: Take 2 (fanfiction, PG13)

    Long time no see! Octo Rocked here! So, some of you may have read the original "Urban Legacy," which I believe is still linked in my signature. I'll link it here when I have a bit more time. Anyway, fans of it may be wondering where it went and why I stopped working on it. Well, I've...been...

    Zelda Art The MCC Week 2: Ocarina of Time

    I was going to submit a techno/a capella remix of Saria's Song, had I 1. had the time and 2. gotten it to sound good. Shame.

    General Classic Which Classic Zelda Boss Do You Want To Return?

    I think that I'd have to agree with seeing Manhandla and/or Aquamentus in a 3D title. On top of that, I'd also like to see Gleeok (At least, more than just his heads like in Phantom Hourglass). Ghoma and Dodongo have been overused (there's usually some variation of one or the other in every...
