    Do you like BotW’s durability mechanic?

    It would have been cool if there were a lot fewer weapons but they lasted a lot longer. Maybe 3x durability, 3x less strong weapons to find (same numbers for weaker stuff) - I found that by the end of the game I was stacked with an entire inventory of Royals / Lynels, and 90% of the stuff was...

    Things That Are on Your Mind

    I'm wondering what happened to the countless names at the start of this thread. Also wondering if I can find the energy to press forward with all my plans in life. I'm moving into a new place and there's plenty of new opportunity, but how hard will it be to realize? Only one way to find out I...

    Spoiler Pokemon Presents

    I was concerned by the unreal engine-lookin trailer with 20 fps animations, too. I know it doesnt release until 2022 but I hope they push it back even a bit more, it looked ROUGH. Sinnoh remakes, on the other hand, look pretty good and I'm glad for a more "traditional" style coming back...

    Spoiler Pokemon Presents

    I have two big takeaways here: One is that obviously the DP remakes are here, which excites me but after the unfinished state of Sword and Shield (which, to be fair, I've still dumped nearly 500 hours into so I did still enjoy them) I hesitate to get TOO hyped. However, it is being developed...

    Interest in Reviving the Music Competition?

    Hmmmm... I have always wanted to dabble.... might have to brush off the old Audacity and Fruity Loops Studio (do those even still exist?) Anyways, point being I would be interested!

    Storm Echo's Video and Content Post!

    Whew, OK, it's been a long time since I last posted here - I'm far overdue for an update! In the last 7 months, I have made a LOT of videos. In July, I rematched Fireblight Ganon in the Champions Ballad, did the same for Waterblight Ganon in "Mipha's Meticulous Masterpiece", before finishing...

    What Are You Doing In BOTW?

    Oh man, you're gonna love it! I've been covering that for my last several youtube videos, and it is such refreshing bonus on the main game, especially if you've played through multiple times. I just finished the Champion's Ballad stuff and got the Horse Bike for the first time, and it is CRAZY...

    The Blazing Black Dragon, Master of Elements, Alatreon!

    That's a sick build! I'm assuming health augmented Gae Bolg for mad regen while mount spamming? I ended up duoing it with a friend, he had a hilarious set of the Beotodus IG for ice and a Fire kinsect, he would kinsect-only on the Ice mode until we got the Eschaton break and then switch to...

    The Blazing Black Dragon, Master of Elements, Alatreon!

    Reporting back in to say I've still loved this hunt, even only completing it successfully 1 time so far it's been an absolute riot and I've enjoyed having a reason to go back through my sets and re-orient to focus on elemental damage. Even with the literally dozens of failures, I've also...

    What were your top 3 games for the Wii U?

    Number 1 is obviously Breath of the Wild, no arguing there - in the end it became cross-platform, but BotW was originally the Wii U exclusive Zelda, and for that I'm grateful. I'm recording my current playthrough of it on my Wii U, even, and I think it's a bit more stable framerate-wise than my...

    What exactly is Link saving in Termina if technically it does not exist?

    Uhhh the obvious / only answer is "Saving the World"! Can't have villanous megamoons face-smashing into Termina any more than we can allow big pig Ganon to take down Hyrule, now can we?

    Favorite Zelda Characters Drawn by Me! (CLOSED TEMPORARILY)

    I just went back to look at it again, and I noticed you followed my request for "A Cucco, wielding the Master Sword or doing something awesome like dive bombing Ganon" and managed to do all of it at once: A Cucco, dive bombing Ganon, WHILE wielding the Master Sword, AND he's even determined to...

    Favorite Zelda Characters Drawn by Me! (CLOSED TEMPORARILY)

    Holy Moly!!! That's amazing @Echolight!! I love the noble Cucco on the cliffside in the background, and how surprised Ganon is to be defeated by the Chicken of Time!! Plus the anime-style "critical hit" sheen in his eye... It's a masterpiece!!! I'm in love! Thank you so so so so much for...

    The Blazing Black Dragon, Master of Elements, Alatreon!

    My buddy and I tried to duo it yesterday and yeah, like TECHNICALLY you can try to heal through it but it's basically an Ecliptic Meteor with no comets for all intents and purposes. We managed to survive it ONE TIME by passing the DPS check but failed every other time for one reason or another...

    Well, to be faaaaiiirrrrr... there's no way for us to tell if those Links COULD wield the Master Sword, if given the chance! For one thing, the Spirit Tracks Link exists in a world where a previous nearly-identical-looking version of himself wielded the Master Sword 100 years ago. So, I guess...

    Does it actually OHKO you through armor and regardless of map location like the Behemoth thing? Or could I guard+ and Guard 5 to take reduced damage and live? What if I just superman dive it with high elemental resistance for the getting up parts? Or if I leave the area it's in when I see the...

    The Blazing Black Dragon, Master of Elements, Alatreon!

    I never got far enough into Gen U to fight it again (was turboing G Rank and got hard walled at tier 9 variant Mizutsune, then Iceborne gave out so I stopped playing) but I will say that I fully intend to solo it if it kills me. I played all of Tri and 3U solo, so for me it just wouldn't be...

    Spoiler Random theories

    Ahh, yeah, there have been a handful of times throughout the games where player character link directly interfaces with past / present / future Links, mostly in Twilight Princess as I recall? However, I don't think that that necessarily rules out that Link is a cyclically reincarnated hero. I...

    Would you be interested in seeing a real Paper Zelda title?

    This is definitely the best attitude to have, for any game! Likewise, if a game looks outright NOT fun, you shouldn't feel obligated to play it just because you like the series.

    Spoiler Random theories

    The goddess Hylia, seen speaking directly to Link (through statues) in BotW, is less of a truly "good" character and more "chaotic neutral" in alignment. Think about it: She has the power to give or take away Zelda's cleansing light, can defeat Ganon in only a few hits (assuming the bow of...

    Official MinMin Appreciation Post

    Let's all applaud Nintendo for taking a total left-field character from a unique and underappreciated game, and turning out one of the wackiest and most entertaining movesets ever seen in Smash Bros! I know she only just came out, but I'm already adjusting my "list of mains" to include MinMin!

    Latest Video Game Purchase

    I just picked up Risk of Rain 2, and let me tell you it is fantastic! I don't normally get into the whole "pre sale early access" bullcrap (in fact I hate it) but my friend was just NONSTOP recommending it to me, and when it went on Steam Sale I picked it up. Pretty good game!

    Metroidvanias

    Metroidvania, in the true sense, are one of my favorite genres - Explore, unlock, and explore some more is a brilliant gameplay loop. Unfortunately, there aren't nearly as many truly great metroidvanias as there are other genres. Hollow and Shovel Knights both qualified, and Samus Returns was...

    Would you be interested in seeing a real Paper Zelda title?

    Think of this: Zelda II remastered as Paper Zelda II RPG, with cleaned-up charming visuals, modern RPG mechanics, and broadened mechanics! It could actually be a solid way to bring some glory to an underrated and janky older title that doesn't really fit into the series otherwise.

    How do you feel about Mobile games?

    They don't even qualify as proper videogames for me. Videogames are things I sit down to play, make an event out of it, bury hours of my life on! Mobile games aren't worth that sort of investment. Instead, they fill a different niche - time-wasting entertainment for the toilet or commuting...

    Echolight's art

    Whew, the cuteness!!! You certainly did her justice, and to be honest I like it a bit better than the actual in-game representation because you were able to minimize the staggeringly large forehead without altering her character too much. Awesome job!
