    Rito: Wind Waker or Breath of the Wild

    I mean, that's only a part of the RV song, though. The part of the RV song that remixes the DRI theme was going for a different feel, IMO, sounding like a song that someone like Kass would play, emphasizing the cultural aspects of the BotW Rito in the song, as the musical artistry within the...

    Rito: Wind Waker or Breath of the Wild

    As said previously, TWW Ritos are really just humans in beaks from a visual standpoint. BotW Rito also have a much more developed culture than TWW Rito, and Rito Village>Dragon Roost Island(aside from MAYBE the music, but both RV and DRI are two of the best songs in the series IMO, so even...

    Should Drug Usage be Decriminalized?

    I'm all for decriminalization of ALL drugs. Consenting adults have the right to do whatever they damn well please with their own body. Canada has decriminalized weed, and there hasn't been problems. We also see what happened when people tried to ban alcohol. Of course, people are still...

    Happy New Year!

    Happy 2022. Hopefully, this year won't be total ass.

    What's The First Anime You Ever Watched?

    The Pokemon anime was the first one I saw as a kid. Sailor Moon was the first one I ever watched that I actually liked, though.

    What are your favorite and least favorite shrine(s)?

    My favourite ones are the longer ones, like the Shrine of Power and Blue Flame shrines. My least favourite are the Apparatus shrines due to the motion controls being weird(and I say that as someone who doesn't mind the MCs in SS or even in other parts of BotW like aiming the bow). I agree with...

    Is Botw actually bad?

    That's how alot of Zelda games are made it would seem, as certain games in the series focus on different aspects(SS focuses on dungeon design, MM focuses on sidequests and NPC interaction, and BotW focuses on open exploration). BotW is fantastic, IMO. One of my favourites in the series. The...

    New Zealand to Ban Cigarettes and Tobacco Product Sales to Anyone Born After 2008 for Life

    Prohibition didn't work before, it won't work now. People should be able to do what they want with their bodies. This is also discriminatory, as it applies only to people born after a certain year.

    Is BotW the "spiritual successor" to Zelda 1?

    Whether you use bombs form your bomb bag or bomb flowers, you're still essentially defeating KD the same way regardless; those two methods don't require you to engage with the boss in a different way or mindset. I forgot about being able to use the Hookshot for PG and BB though. I'm pretty sure...

    Is BotW the "spiritual successor" to Zelda 1?

    I know that Gohma lets you stun her with either the Deku Nuts or Slingshot, but aside from that, the other bosses in OoT follow the ''use dungeon item then hit while stunned philosophy''. I wasn't arguing that the design philosophy of HC in BotW is a 1:1 translation of the design philosophy of...

    It's not really Ganondorf

    Because in the case of BotW/BotW 2 Ganon, it's confirmed that he's the same person as OoT Ganon in CaC, and OoT Ganon has never been portrayed as a good person; even back in OoT, he poisons the Deku Tree and tries to starve the Gorons, and once he got the ToP he turned Hyrule into a literal...

    Genius Game Mechanics

    In terms of Zelda, the Great Plateau in BotW is the best tutorial because it does such a good job teaching you while making it feel like you're still playing a video game. It feels good to look at the obvious stick on the ground and pick it up, and then realize after swinging it around a few...
  13. Moblinking5000

    Is BotW the "spiritual successor" to Zelda 1?

    Some bosses, yes, but alot of bosses like Helmasaur King, Mothula, Kholdstare, Aquamentus, etc. gave you choices. Good point about MM though. I mean, BotW gives it a twist around the open world philosophy, but mostly same kind of deal. Also, regardless of how you choose to tackle the castle...

    Is BotW the "spiritual successor" to Zelda 1?

    Good point; I also feel like a lot of people forget that BotW brought back and--in some cases-- expanded upon alot of the gameplay mechanics of previous Zelda games outside of Zelda 1; -Using the weapons of your enemies like in TWW is now tied to the core gameplay loop of BotW -Different...

    What Timeline do you believe BotW takes place in? What details in the game make you come to this conclusion?

    Difference is that we know that through developer interviews, though. That's mere speculation. If we want to go into that realm, we could say that Link didn't tell anyone about LA because they would think he went mad. Looks like a Korok to me. Still, even ignoring that, Koroks are...

    Discrimination Under The Guise of Freedom of Religion

    I'm not trying to cancel religion, though. I even put ''IMO'' when I said it has no place in the modern age, and I don't say that just because. My people were whipped, beaten, raped, tortured, and killed because of it, not to mention how women, the LGBTQ community, and others have faced most of...

    What Timeline do you believe BotW takes place in? What details in the game make you come to this conclusion?

    Oh, I disagree on the Dragon Break theory, but I DO agree with you on your thoughts on how we should treat theories.
  18. Moblinking5000

    What Timeline do you believe BotW takes place in? What details in the game make you come to this conclusion?

    What references to all timelines? If you're talking about the place names, I already explained why that's not a great thing to base your theories on. Rock Salt? Nothing says it's from the Great Sea, just an ancient sea. Could be any sea that we've seen in the series. Rito? They're nothing...

    Discrimination Under The Guise of Freedom of Religion

    Yes. Religion has no place in the modern age IMO, especially when it comes to schools. If they really want to indoctrinate their children with their tales about bearded magic men in the clouds, then that's what churches, temples, etc. are for. The existence of those kind of defeat the purpose of...

    What Timeline do you believe BotW takes place in? What details in the game make you come to this conclusion?

    So, you think that the detailed history of Ruto being a Zora princess who became a sage that fought Ganon alongside the Hero of Time is ''fan service''? Sure, place names are one thing since alot of them don't even make sense in context; for example, Mabe Village Ruins can't be the same ruins...

    Title Predictions

    Considering the fact that the title will have spoilers, it might have Ganon's name in it, or something about the Zonai.

    Discrimination Under The Guise of Freedom of Religion

    Why? We collectively agree that people who commit murder should face a consequence, or people who steal, etc. how is this any different?

    Discrimination Under The Guise of Freedom of Religion

    You said: Allowed implies legality; if something is legal, then it is allowable, if it is illegal, it is not. Therefore, what I said holds water in regards to your initial comment. Also: You admitted yourself that it's not alright. We know it's not right to discriminate against people...

    Discrimination Under The Guise of Freedom of Religion

    Assuming you live in Canada or the US, this is false; the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act say otherwise.

    Discrimination Under The Guise of Freedom of Religion

    Your rights end where someone else's begin. If, for example, you deny someone a life saving surgery because your imaginary man in the sky says that it's forbidden, then you're a monster and you can go **** yourself. As long as you keep your bronze aged beliefs behind closed doors and don't let...

    So I figured out how to instantaneously trigger a blood moon

    So, do you have the Switch version or Wii U version? I have the Wii U version, and it doesn't work for me.

    What order do you recommend completing Divine Beasts?

    Probably this: Medoh>Ruta>Rudania>Naboris Medoh is in the upper left corner(which is what usually denotes that something is supposed to be first in something ordered like a list), you can see it from anywhere, and it's in a plains-like area which is a common starting area in games, and unlike...

    What Timeline do you believe BotW takes place in? What details in the game make you come to this conclusion?

    Downfall is the only one that truly works. -BotW is in a world that has seen many battles with Ganon. This fits the DT the best. -BotW takes place in a world where the original Hyrule Kingdom still exists, and where the sages from OoT are mentioned as having awoken. This makes both the CT and...

    It's not really Ganondorf

    There's nothing actually stating that he's stuck in beast form on the DT. We do see him in his beast form exclusively from ALttP to Zelda 1, but that doesn't mean that he's incapable of switching between forms when we've seen him do it before. Hell, in The Wind Waker, he's capable of changing...
  31. Moblinking5000

    It's not really Ganondorf

    Yeah, and he's also notorious for ignoring points that contradict his theories(like the fact that HH confirms that TP LInk is a descendant of OoT Link, meaning that the Hero of Time couldn't have died in MM)
  32. Moblinking5000

    It's not really Ganondorf

    Using the hero in the mural to prove that the hero is Ganondorf or got possessed by him or other similar theories has always been faulty; the MS is completely blue in that mural, Medoh is blue, the hero has red legs in addition to red hair, Ruta is blue, etc. It's not meant to be accurate...
  33. Moblinking5000

    What if The Wind Waker got a successor sequel?

    Considering that Hyrule and Ganon were both Triforce'd, this is impossible. However, from a gameplay perspective, I wouldn't mind a Zelda game that's a spiritual successor to TWW.
  34. Moblinking5000

    I wonder if we will get a game from the previous Calamity.

    That's always my exact counterargument to that, especially since TWW implies(and HH outright confirms) that Daphnes is a spirit by the time of TWW. We know that people who have pieces of the Triforce within them lose them when they die(see Ganon in TP and Zelda 1), but maybe a spirit that's...
  35. Moblinking5000

    I wonder if we will get a game from the previous Calamity.

    The King of Hyrule wished for the death of Ganondorf along with Hyrule Kingdom. The Master Sword depleting Ganon's life force was how that portion of the wish came to fruition, just like how the Statue of the Goddess falling on The Imprisoned in the present is how Link's Triforce wish for him to...
  36. Moblinking5000

    I wonder if we will get a game from the previous Calamity.

    This is never confirmed; merely an assumption on your end. While all of Ganon's appearances have only involved his beast form on the DT post OoT, there is nothing saying that he is unable to return to human form. In fact, we have seen him transform to beast and human back to back in OoT and TP...
  37. Moblinking5000

    Why the Hero of Time never defeated child timeline Ganondorf?

    Ganondorf doesn't get the Triforce of Power in the CT until his attempted execution, so he wasn't so strong that the HoT had to face him. Since the Royal Family was warned before hand, I'm sure that the Knights of Hyrule and the Ancient Sages would be able to capture Ganon.
  38. Moblinking5000

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    To me, it might go to the Forest Temple theme, although it, the Spirit Temple theme, and Gerudo Valley are probably in my top three tracks, with the order switching slightly. The theme for Inside the Great Deku Tree is underrated as well; it's really atmospheric.

    Beedle is from the Surfaceworld in Skyward Sword

    Hmm...not a bad theory, actually. The point about Hylia only bringing up Hylians is a really good point, especially.

    HH or ZE- Which Timeline Do You Prefer?

    Encyclopedia's timeline. It fixes the placement of the Oracle games, which was the only thing I really had a problem with in the HH timeline.

    Why are there so many Malons? And who is Marin?

    It looks a lot like Koholint, but due to its nature(different name, not existing in a dream, etc.) it's probably just a meta reference at best. I certainly agree with the overall point here; you should always reassess and question your ideas to see if they hold water, and being open to new...
  42. Moblinking5000

    Why are there so many Malons? And who is Marin?

    How? If they fall on a timeline, how can they be retellings? The games are explicitly not retellings of the same legend. The Wind Waker constantly mentions the events of OoT as having happened in the past, with constant references to the Hero of Time and the stained glass windows of the sages...
  43. Moblinking5000

    Why are there so many Malons? And who is Marin?

    For the same reasons why there's multiple Links/Zeldas(and Ganons thanks to Ganon II from FSA), I suppose; reincarnated people in the series seem to have the same names from lifetime to lifetime, perhaps through destiny(although multiple Zeldas exist at the same time in the era of the NES...

    Metroid Dread

    Really? Hmm. I found him the easiest in the game. He's the only boss I beat on my first try. Anyway, I beat Dread tonight. It was really damn good, honestly. It felt like a true comeback of the series, and I love the tough but fair difficulty. Bosses overall are quite possibly the most well...

    What is your history with Metroid as a franchise, if any at all?

    So, the NES was my first console(despite being born after the NES era), and I had ton of games for it. Super Mario Bros 1-3, Kirby's Adventure, Mega Man 2, etc. One of those games happened to be Metroid. It was a really interesting game. I didn't have the manual, so I had no clue what the story...

    How did Ganon get sealed in Lorule?

    Why assume that only one incarnation of hatred can exist at once? Still not a part of the emblem, though. :) The only part that was retconned here was the fact that the way to the Sacred Realm was opened ''by accident/chance''. While we don't see them with our own eyes, the dying soldier...

    How did Ganon get sealed in Lorule?

    I meant CT, yes. I might reply to the rest later, but Metroid Dread came in the mail. Might be a few days or so.
