    Can't even remember who it was. I started filtering Zelda retrospectives at over twenty minutes and most recent first so I get tiny YouTubers now. Some of them are absolutely worth supporting and some are lame but at least it's not all the videos with 100s of thousands of views. In case it...

    I've been playing the Oracle duology since its release and those two games come to mind whenever I discuss The Legend of Zelda as a series. I've spent countless hours riding Dimitri, Moosh, and Ricky around Labrynna and Holodrum. Yesterday, while watching yet another review of Ages, without...

    ZD Writing Competition: Round 43 - Results

    @MightyMario yours felt like an actual experience put to paper (or digits I suppose). It feels like exactly how nightmares take place in real life. @Morbid Minish I'm not sure if it was intentional but the way words in the book were staggered and running together made it feel unsettling. Also...

    ZD Writing Competition: Round 43 - Results

    Nice job, Minish. @ExLight it's nothing much, just the Greek word meaning "dream" and the prefix "dys-" generally meaning bad. I think I want to write a short story about the poem since it's probably the most esoteric thing I've ever written, what with the focus on humorism and obtuse language.

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    Lol, well then get to it today! Link changes things in the past so there are nearly infinite branching timelines, just as with OoT and, if we want to get really ridiculous about it, the stasis rune and the clock.

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    And the infinite number of branching timelines in Oracle of Ages? ;)

    [MM] Who do the Deku worship/do they worship?

    I don't think there's *any* evidence for this but I would guess they had something of an animistic religion. It would make for a great conceit for a Hyrule RTS though if they worshipped Farore to exclusion. Imagine the jihadic war the tribes would wage if the Deku promoted Farore, the Goron...

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    Given that Nintendo has partnered with Universal, a Zelda series would likely be produced by Illumination. I say nay, but it's possible I'm just wrong. The first go-around of Zelda cartoons was at least fun.
  11. Hyrulian Hero

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    Lame. Not as lame as I'd figured but still lame. Illumination's CG is boring, their animation is lazy, they feel cheap and overproduced all at the same time. This movie looks like their best work yet visually and it still smells of Illumination. Dispise Jack Black. He's not the absolute worst...

    Which Book Are You Currently Reading?

    Just started the second volume of the complete omnibus of H.P. Lovecraft's weird fiction. This is probably my fifth time through and it's never a disappointing read. Is the book you're reading a curated collection of Lovecraft's work?

    What Are Some New Gameplay Mechanics You'd Like to See in Tears of the Kingdom?

    Tears of the Kingdom could refer to the tears of light-like dangler on Link's hip. That could be a fun visual cue for that mechanic.

    VikzeLink's Weekly Sunday Poll 531!

    So as I've pointed out, "___ of the ___" will make sense if there's a story arch through three Zelda games on the Switch. It will also make sense if there's simply a duology of related games. They did it with Oracle of Ages/Oracle of Seasons, Four Swords/Four Swords Adventures, and A Link to the...

    Hestu or Nostu?

    He's a tree, he could totally be in TotK. But what if he's not? Like, Korok seeds were a bit superfluous, especially after a certain point, but I think I'll miss them if Hestu's not in Tears. There are surely other options for gating inventory slots and other ways to make the world feel full and...

    She'll rise from the pit covered in like a symbiote-looking exoskeleton with a big yellow eye that totally doesn't give away her weak point. Malice legs will spring from her back all Doc Ock style and she'll rise up above Link as her boss title appears in dainty yet haunted cursive: "Zelda...

    How much of the trailers, previews, reviews will you look at? Or will that spoil the game?

    Nintendo usually does a great job of crafting a slow burn release for it's Zelda games. They have rarely showed me anything I thought was too much. They will dribble more information as the day draws nearer and I will watch what they give me. As soon as the game is released (and I will buy it...

    That's a really good point. I'm one of the weird ones who normally plays handheld anyway so it works. If course that means I must acquire a second Switch...they'd better release a TotK Switch.

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    I know how hard it is to prove a negative, believer me. The fact that he doesn't NOT say there's a timeline when talking about how the games are intended not to clash places room open for a timeline, sure. But then he also didn't NOT say he's a big fan of Chocolate-peanut butter ice cream leaves...

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    Not a popular opinion but a totally legitimate one. You can be sure they'll go back to an eventually and it'll probably be awesome. As it stands now, what they're doing with Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom is fine with me. Eventually, we'll all get tired of this art style and want...

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    But again, the Door of Time doesn't seal Link (as far as we know). I think there might be a discrepancy here between the door of time and the gate of time which seem to be similar but separate objects. Also, I think the timeline split is asinine and is unnecessary, not to mention it makes zero...

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    So much wrong indeed. Miyamoto on OoT 1999: On the importance of story and continuity between games: These are not the words of a developer with a timeline, this is a man who developed a game with the intent that it not contradict the other games in the series in major ways. Corporate...

    Ah, but when it's your wife playing, it's fantastically enjoyable to watch. I am totally sold on the idea that TotK will release with a special edition Zelda OLED console so getting another Switch may be a good answer.

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    See, it seems that way, but I can't actually find evidence for that. The reason Link wakes up seven years older is because he's entered the Sacred Realm and time passes normally for seven years. When he puts the Master Sword back in the Pedestal of Time, he reenters the...uh...normal world which...

    I'm worried. My wife is finally finishing BotW after having put in a hundred hours before having my little daughter erase her save.

    It doesn't, I suppose I could call it a double ouroboros but that kind of defeats the purpose. Anyway, now I'm watching Zeltik and of course he's already been over all of this. I'm late!

    Is BOTW a Trilogy?

    It would be something of a straw man to say that I'm contending that any three things that can be grouped are a trilogy. I'm pointing out that the term trilogy can be used simply to group things. That being the case, I think the term trilogy could easily become common parlance for referring to...

    Does the logo ouroboros indicate some kind of...dare I say...circular timeline *GASP!*?
  39. Hyrulian Hero

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    Yep, except that the time travel is just Link's spirit being sealed away for seven years and time passing as normal. Like I've never called the hundred years between age of Calamity and Breath of the Wild time travel.
  40. Hyrulian Hero

    Is BOTW a Trilogy?

    I mean, yes and no. You're contention is compelling and agreeable but you do of course have like the three Mario Party games on three N64 being the MP64 trilogy for instance. They do need to be linked (haha) but simply sharing a console and franchise could be enough. For instance, I think the...

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    I was writing a response when I came across something. The Door of Time doesn't allow time travel. The Pedestal of Time doesn't allow time travel. The Ocarina of Time...well, it can turn night to day and vice versa and slow or speed time, and it can draw Link back three days...but that's not...
  42. Hyrulian Hero

    Is BOTW a Trilogy?

    Yes. I didn't think it was even a possibility but considering the ongoing story, the timing (considering the Switch could have four more years left in it), and now the logo and title, I think it's even likely. The third title has likely been in development for 2 years and will continue the...

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    Yeeeaaaahhh...but I remember the days of timeline speculation before the canon timeline and the ridiculous three-pronged split. It would be one thing if they made a "what if" spinoff timeline split but they made it canon. We can say that "the split should have occurred in Skyward Sword or Minish...
  44. Hyrulian Hero

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    I hadn't heard that they outsourced the timeline to a third party, can I get a reference? I'm not doubting you, I just like having resources for context. The scenario sounds like exactly the way things went down.
  45. Hyrulian Hero

    What do you wish Zelda did more of?

    Let's be honest. I honestly don't believe there's any legitimate argument against this: Nintendo never had any timeline for the games. Dark Horse either made up the timeline split for Hyrule Historia or were in touch with developers who made up a timeline split for Hyrule Historia. I'm waiting...

    Breath of the Wild What Are You Doing In BOTW?

    As I type this, I'm watching the culmination of my wife's 150ish hours in BotW. I'm currently watching her force her way through Calamity Ganon by using Daruk's protection to reflect attacks-because she never learned how to flurry rush. Even the devs knew that non-gamers and new gamers would...
