    General Zelda The Return of Bosses Returning As Common Enemies.

    I believe it could work well under certain circumstances. Do I want developers to throw these guys in willy-nilly? No - I think that's a form of laziness, in that they'd rather recycle a bunch of older bosses than add something original. Used smartly, though, it could be an excellent test of...

    What's Your View on HMs in the Pokemon Series?

    My view is that HMs should bow out of Pokemon. I understand the desire or need to keep players from entering areas they're not ready for, but it's getting pretty ridiculous at this point. I really, really want to use all six of my Pokemon slots for battle without reserving two or three for the...

    The Future of the Pokémon Franchise

    ...Eheh. Heheheheheh. HehehehehHAHAHAHAHAHH!! HAAAAAHAHAH - ...Ahem. Asking me this question is usually not wise if you don't want five or six pages of personal monologue. That being said, I will try to keep this as brief as possible. Where do I see the Pokemon series going? Well, ten, twenty...

    EV/IV Training

    I like the idea, since molding your Pokemon into your own personal engines of destruction is a nice touch to say the least, but I never use it. I'm a busy guy. I have a job, a girlfriend, outside obligations, a future to build, books to write, friends to visit... I really don't feel like...

    Why is Realism Bad?

    Well, to be fair, he does label himself Zelda Dungeon's biggest troll. Certainly not saying it's right, but I'm not surprised by it. I don't know, I think I have to go with Ver-go-a-go-go on this one. Back during the inception of the 7th gen, the argument that full realism looks too disjointed...

    Who Do You Want As the Zelda U Villain?

    So far, Ganon and a new villain are tied evenly with 27 votes each. If this is the way most Zelda fans feel, would it be a good idea for Nintendo to make a Zelda game that features both a new guy and Ganon? I think most fans are reluctant to try a servant-to-Ganon approach again ever since it...

    How Many Item Slots

    To some extent, it depends on what control scheme Zelda U goes with. Assuming we're playing predominantly or only with the GamePad, I'm a fan of having just one or two slots to use with buttons, swapping out items with the touch screen. So long as you've got it all at your fingertips, why not...

    Why is Realism Bad?

    Honestly, realism in Zelda isn't bad at all, and I can easily see many arguments against it falling through. Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Twilight Princess - the majority of Zelda's big-budget 3D games - all adopted graphical styles close to realism, and it really wasn't that bad. If...

    General Zelda Is Zelda Sexist?

    Short answer...nah. Zelda's pretty open. Deep answer, every game has at least tiny pockets of sexism here and there. The classic trope of hero-rescues-damsel could be considered somewhat sexist since it seems to assume the woman can't or won't actually defend herself. And yeah, in the games...

    Who Should Voice Link in ZeldaU

    Goofy as that may sound to the casual observer, I'm perfectly alright with it. Would you look silly recording your grunts and screams? Yes. Would it be awesome? Yep. Unless this is more a question of which seiyuu I liked best, I'd rather we get an entirely new voice actor, or keep the latest...

    WW-Wii U Wind Waker HD Has Remastered Music.

    Seems like The Wind Waker HD is giving me the same dilemma Ocarina of Time 3D did. I really do like the improvements, and the music is a big one since The Wind Waker does have an amazing soundtrack that deserves to be fully realized as an orchestra. At the same time, though, are all the changes...

    General Zelda If You Could Make Up a Zelda Item, What Would It Be?

    Me thinking up a brand new item that doesn't suck would probably take way too much time. One thing I have given a good bit of thought to, though, is the ability to alter your current items, not just improve them. Let's say for the sake of argument that the new boomerang has to be manually...

    General Zelda Why Does Everyone Like Non-linearity So Much?

    My view on non-linearity is pretty varied, so I may be all over the place here. Why do so many people want non-linearity back in Zelda? #1: It's a founding concept of Zelda. Notice I said people want it BACK in Zelda. Linearity, while not necessarily a bad thing, is actually somewhat...

    How Many Dungeons Do You Want in the New Zelda?

    [insert "It's Over Nine Thousaaaand!" joke here] I voted 8, assuming that we're only talking about mandatory dungeons to complete the game. I would love to see Nintendo adding multiple optional dungeons to the game, which hopefully they're working on with the future Zelda games. So long as...
