    The Legend of Korra

    Thank you. I don't understand why the motif of "stereotypical free-spirited girl meets stern, rule-following boy, they hate each other, she teaches him how to have fun, then they have lots and lots of babies" is still a thing. Every new show tries to revamp it and make it original, but it's...

    Favorite / Least Favorite Rival

    Well excuuuuuuuuuse me. ;) Ah, either way, my critique of him stands. I don't remember his character development, which means (at least to me) that it wasn't a very integral part of his personality.

    OoT-N64 The Meaning of Shiek

    I'd agree with this, for the most part. Nintendo has a knack for taking great care in the naming of their characters. It could be argued that the Sheikah race are the "elders" of the Zelda universe - they're certainly one of the oldest races in the game and act as confidants and advisers for the...

    Adventure of Link Took Me 20 Years....

    Congratulations!! I lost patience with Adventure of Link very quickly, I applaud you for your incredible determination!

    Which Timeline Would You Like to See Continued?

    I'm also a fan of seeing more games come out of the child timeline. It seemed like it had the most potential for new games with the same reoccurring major villains. I'd like to see more coming out of "The Shadow Era" that Four Swords touched on.

    What Would Your "Death Good"?

    Hard to say. Probably my stuffed bear, Bacon. He was my snuggle buddy in life, so it shall be in death. French horn music forever? That would drive me crazy! ;)

    The Legend of Zelda Movie?

    I think Wind Waker may end up being a good movie. It has a good blend of likable reoccurring characters, exploration, continuity, and an awesomely climactic ending. Provided they keep Link as a silent protagonist. That being said, if I were to see a preview for a Zelda movie, I'd most likely be...

    Choclate or Vanilla Cake?

    I am a friend to all cakes. Vanilla, Chocolate, Lemon, Caramel, Amaretto, or Red Velvet - I want all of it in my mouth.

    How to Improve Pokemon

    Oooooh man. I would be able to die happy. But in all honestly, I would prefer that they continue to make games that revisit old areas. Gold and Silver are excellent examples of this - beating the Elite Four was only the half way point. I also sort of wish they'd incorporate a more side-questy...

    Favorite / Least Favorite Rival

    My favorite rival by far was N, because he actually had some character depth to him. Other than that, I actually like rivals that are past friends, particularly Blue and May. My least favorite was probably Silver. I don't remember him having any sort of depth whatsoever. He was just a random...

    Discussion #022: Shop Owners, IN DISGUISE?

    I'm also siding with Seth - I just figured the Trading Post salesman and the Curiosity Shop salesman were the same guy. He gets his main paycheck from the Trading Post and then moonlights at the Curiosity Shop for thrills. It is odd that they can be seen a the same time, but I honestly think...

    Lon Lon Ranch & Lumpy Pumpkin

    I've never really thought about it before, but you're right! A ton of the games include a ranch full of friendly farmers. I wonder why it's always included. Maybe to pull the games back into a rural setting? While I'm sure it isn't a vital aspect of the games, I like the ranches. It's always a...

    Favorite Gratitude Crystal Quest?

    I enjoyed Cupid Was Here. Such sweet, sweet satisfaction in seeing Cawlin get what was coming to him (and simultaneously hook up Pipit and Karane). I love playing matchmaker in games. ^^

    "Duh" Moments in Zelda

    Pulling out the chicken in OoT to wake up Talon. It took me like, an hour. I discovered the secret when I started trying to use every item I had against him.

    Playing Zelda with Family & Friends

    I came in to tell the exact same story! :D My brother and I got Ocarina of Time for Christmas in 1998 when we were eight and ten, respectively. My Dad wanted to play it as well, so he ended up playing through the game while we watched and helped figure out puzzles. I remember he printed out an...

    Should Nintendo Release Zelda Sheet Music?

    It'd be awesome if they released an official songbook, for sure. In the mean time, there are a number of online sources for PDFs of Zelda music. ;)

    Complete Symphony of the Goddess Concert CD

    I'm with the others in that I surely hope so. If not a disk, I wouldn't be surprised if a DVD of the performance was released: they set up cameras at every performance to display closeups of the performers. It wouldn't be too hard to just record it as well. I'm mostly hoping so because I was...

    Spoiler Evidence of a Skyward Sword Prequel??

    I didn't really interpret that comment to mean there was a sequel. I thought of it more along the lines of a folk tale that had been passed on. If Zelda was the first reincarnation of Hylia, then short of playing as the goddess herself, I don't think you can get much farther back into the timeline.

    Song of Storms Isnt a Paradox.

    That's a theory that definitely makes some sense. I mean, it would be one of the few ways to avoid a Time Travel paradox with Link. Still, I think that the young Link almost has to be the one who plays the Song of Storms for the first time. Before you play the song as a child, the Windmill Man...

    Which Console Do You Think Had the Best Zelda Games on It.

    In my personal opinion, I love the N64 and am biased in all kinds of ways toward it. Ocarina of Time is my favorite Zelda game, if for any reason other than nostalgia. However, I thought that Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks were both stronger games conceptually than Ocarina of Time...

    OoT-N64 Wallmaster?

    I always thought of them like giant spiders that clung to the intersection between the wall and the ceiling. I guess that's how I associated the name with the creature. But what Dan says makes some sense to me too. Ahh... Hm.

    Spoiler Girahim Final Phase

    I loved his final battle. It was simple in nature, yes, but really really fun. Sometimes boss battles don't have to be super convoluted to be entertaining. :)

    What Describes "Campy" to You?

    I agree with the definition of "campy" primarily referring to a self-parody; not taking oneself too seriously, breaking the fourth wall, and being over all rather silly. The issue I think lies in the fact that people may be combining the term "campy" with anything that can be considered a cult...

    If You Could Customize Your Loftwing...

    My Loftwing shall be named Waffles. Why? Because dammit, I want a pet named Waffles and no one will let me get one. I will live vicariously through Link. No talking. That's lame. He shall be silent like Link. Besides, I can only imagine Loftwings talking with a goofy voice that would most...

    Spoiler Duck...Duck...

    I am no stranger to Groose-appreciation boards. ;) Love the guy.

Including characters like this...

    Favorite Girahim Battle

    I'm going to join in with the hive mind here and agree on the last fight being the best. There was the most variety in how you fought him, and, unlike the first battle, it really felt like you two were equals. As weird as it sounds, it was more satisfying to actually be able to knock him down...

    Least Favourite Villain?

    Honestly... I'd probably say Demise. If only because he never really made himself known until the very end of the game. Ghirahim was great in terms of personality, development, and challenge. I was disappointed that he wasn't the main villain. Fighting Demise after chasing Ghirahim the entire...

    Spoiler Did Skyward Sword Ever Make You Cry?

    Heck yeah it made me cry. Once when Zelda and Link were reunited for the first time in the past, and it was super emotional and touching, and then Zelda's Lullaby started playing... Man, I couldn't take it. So many memories of Zelda rushing in at that moment. I also cried at the end, from...

    Tattoos

    I think tattoos can be a beautiful act of expression. :) I want tattoos for myself, but I don't want to get any until I have the money to pay for a good one - it's going to be on my body for the rest of my life, I don't want to forego quality for a bargain. I'm currently saving up for a hemlock...

    What Was Your Name?

    I think I named my first character "BECCA" because "Rebecca" couldn't fit in the space provided and I loved to use all caps whenever possible. I think I kept up this trend (maybe opting for "BECKY" here and there during middle school) until they lengthened the name space. Then I was "Beckira,"...

    If Virtual Were Real What Game Would You Want to Play?

    Tetris. Giant blocks track your movement and land on you, crushing you to death. So you have to stand in the position you want them to fall, darting out from under them at the last minute. Complete a row to make a line of blocks disappear. The only way to survive is to destroy all the blocks...

    Zelda Third Person Shooter

    Herp derp. Yep yep yep, I am an idiot. XD In THAT case, I think it may work alright. XD I greatly enjoyed the rpg elements that they brought into Skyward Sword, and it would be interesting to see it expand a little more.

    Xbox 360 or Ps3?

    I like the 360, if only because it seems to carry more titles that I enjoy. PS3 seems to cater exclusively to the massive multiplayer / first-person shooter / sports games crowd. Plus, the 360 controller is like heaven in your hands.

    Spoiler Thoughts on Zelda: Twilight Princess?

    I think Nintendo took a lot of risks with Twilight Princess. In general it was not my favorite, if only because the story took forever to get going, and for the first time in a Zelda series, I really didn't care that much about any of the characters. I appreciated that they were trying to bring...

    Zelda Third Person Shooter

    Not a fan of first-person shooters, myself. They give me motion sickness. :c That being said, I wouldn't mind if Nintendo made a spin off mini-game (similar to Link's Crossbow Training) with this mechanic, but if they produced a complete title in first person, I'd be pretty bummed.

    My ringtone is "You Make My Dreams" by Hall and Oates. My text alert is Navi's "Hey, Listen!" which my mother loves to emulate every time she hears it. My wake-up alarm is the theme from "Brodyquest" which helps me wake up every day feeling like I'm going to make lots of starfish friends...

    What is the Strangest Dream You've Ever Had?

    I've been having a reoccurring dream lately where I'm watching a grainy video tape that seems like a response to a dating advertisement. In the tape, a man wearing shimmery 1985-era clothing and jerry-curls expresses to me how excited he is for me to come visit. He's so excited that it seems...

    What Makes Zelda Games Better?

    For me, I love the richness of the story lines. Their characters are charming and likable for the most part, and you genuinely care for what happens to them. They do a very good job of maintaining a good story without going overboard and getting confusing. They're very accessible games. Also...

    SSB4 Charectors: Who's Going?

    I'm hoping that they drop some of the semi-clone characters. Wolf and Falco, as previously stated, are sort of lame characters because they don't provide anything interesting that you can't get from another character. Ness and Lucas are another example, as well as Link and Toon Link. These kinds...

    This Pokemon

    It was a pretty good show for the first couple of seasons, but yeah, after that it went entirely downhill. Each new season became solely about the exhibition of the new pokemon from the new games. Each new character was abandoned in favor of another bright-eyed and increasingly two-dimensional...

    Why is There So Much Hate for the Triforce Hunt at the End of WW?

    I love it! Easily my favorite part of this game.

I can see how someone who really hated the...

    Self Motivation

    I have the exact same problem. The way I deal with it is simply getting away from my distractions. I go to the library on campus, a coffee shop downtown, anywhere where there aren't any of my games or movies. When writing papers that don't require the internet, I get away from that too, studying...
