    Link's Awakening Switch Did you Enjoy the remake?

    Gotta admit, I agree with you here. I loved Link's Awakening, but it felt like it was trying to be surreal but just couldn't quite manage the balance between whimsy and telling an emotional story. It felt like the tone of the ending was inconsistent with the irreverent tone that the rest of the...

    Post-Pandemic Plans & Aspirations

    I'm going to go for a walk. Presuming we are talking about after the disease is no longer a factor, I intend to go for a long walk in the forest, completely oblivious to other people. I miss getting to go out for a walk and not having to worry what deadly disease I or someone else was carrying...

    What Made You Happy Today?

    I beat A Link to the Past for the first time today. Such a good game. I liked The Minish Cap better, but A Link to the Past was just brilliant.

    Nintendo's $60 Re-releases

    Wow, that's some real arrogance right there. I paid a thousand dollars for my laptop, and it refuses to run Metroid Prime at more than 5fps. Yeah, I may have been stupid to listen to my mother when she told me to get a Mac because they're more "durable" (yeah, I know I shouldn't have listened to...

    Nintendo's $60 Re-releases

    I don't love it, and I don't hate it. I've never played Skyward Sword, and I don't own a Wii U, so for me, this IS the cheaper alternative. I can get why people who own it already don't like it, but let's be honest, this port is more for people like me who don't have a way to play it. If you...

    Could you see them making a 3d sequel to an older game?

    I'd be down for a sequel to Twilight Princess, or rather, I'd really like to see more in the Child Timeline with gameplay like Twilight Princess'. What I'd really like to see is a truly steampunk Zelda in the Adult timeline following Spirit Tracks. That would be really cool.

    SSHD Skyward Sword HD Discussion

    Gotta say, I don't mind the price tag. I don't love it, either, but having never played the original version, I really don't care. I'm the kind of person who will shell out extra just to make sure that I get the physical version of a game, if I have to. I'm not thrilled that they're charging $60...

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    Gotta say, I'm extremely excited for Skyward Sword HD and Age of Calamity DLC, but... 1. Pyra/Mythra actually makes me angry. Their designs are so quintessentially "anime girl who doesn't wear enough clothes." I know a lot of people like Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but I really, really don't like...

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    I still hold Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask as my two favorite games of all time, alongside the first Dark Souls, but perhaps that will change when I finally get the chance to play Twilight Princess.

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    For someone whose favorite game is Twilight Princess, that's a bold claim. Considering how similar they are in many ways, I mean,

    Where does Classic Zelda end and Modern Zelda start?

    I have to disagree with you with where you put the Era of Decline. See, the thing is that the rate that games were coming out didn't dry up. From 1998 to 2006, we had a release in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 (MC), 2004 (FSA), and 2006. That's a game once every one or two years, with a major...

    Have you ever cried during Zelda?

    I don't really cry as a result of media very often. The last thing that I can remember making me actually cry (and I sobbed like a baby) was Avengers: Endgame, and that was a while ago. However, I nearly started crying at the end of Link's Awakening. It was really more a result of the music than...

    What Game(s) Are You Playing at the Moment?

    Dark Souls and Minecraft. It's a very nice juxtaposition; one, a grim, bleak tale of hardships, and the other, a colorful, blocky adventure filled to the brim with charm and fun.

    No. This factually does not work. Hyrule does not exist in the Adult Timeline.

    What is your unpopular Zelda opinion?

    @YoungGanon23 That is a very hot take. Also, some of your information is factually incorrect. Primarily, Twilight Princess came out four years after The Wind Waker, so TWW couldn't have "killed" the franchise. I do agree that Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Twilight Princess are the best...

    How should I play Ocarina of Time on pc?

    If you have a Mac, I recommend OpenEmu. It's honestly the best emulator I've ever used, with a really clean UI, and it's really simple to use. If you don't have a Mac, it becomes a little more complicated, because of the number of options out there. I do hear good things about Project 64, so...

    Hyrule Warriors Did the voice acting improve?

    It's fine, with a couple of exceptions either way. I still really like Zelda's voice acting, but there are a couple that are really good; Revali, Khoga, Astor, and Sooga in particular. Rhoam's is still only okay, same with Daruk. But clearly the best voice acting is Link's!

    Where does Classic Zelda end and Modern Zelda start?

    I guess I would say that Zelda is divided into four eras. The first being the beginning of Zelda up through Link's Awakening DX. All great games, but the formula was a bit unrefined (yes, even in A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening). The second is what I consider to be the Golden Age of...

    Link's Awakening Switch Link's Altered Appearance Thoughts?

    I really like the design they used for Link in this one. However, I wish that it was used more than in the opening and ending cutscenes. They toy art style was cool, but I would kill for a Zelda game or show with that Ghibli-like art style. I thought that the few cinematics the game had were...

    Breath of the Wild Non-Combat Quests?

    I hate to be that person, but if you don't think your children are able to handle the cartoonish fights presented in Breath of the Wild, they're probably still too young to be exposed to videogames. I can't really see anyone getting freaked out by the combat in Breath of the Wild, but then...

    VikzeLink's Weekly Sunday Poll 438!

    I had a hard time choosing between Ocarina of Time (Ganon's Tower) and The Minish Cap's Dark Hyrule Castle. Ocarina of Time is overall a better finale and a better experience, but I also think that Dark Hyrule Castle is one of the absolute best dungeons in the series. I ended up choosing Ganon's...

    What options/features should be a standard for every game?

    I think that really depends on what kind of music the remaster uses. That feature would work really well for something like the Link's Awakening Remake, but for something like Final Fantasy VII Remake? No way. There's too much of a difference between the original and the remade music. There are...

    Which Book Are You Currently Reading?

    How Long 'til Black Future Month? by N. K. Jemisin. It's a collection of afrofuturistic short science, fantasy, and speculative fiction stories. It's quite possibly one of the best books I've ever read. Every story pushes the boundaries of my imagination and keeps me guessing, speculating...

    Nintendo Joycon Drift: Repair or Replace?

    A few months ago, my Joy-cons started drifting. At first, it was only the right Joy-con and it wasn't too much of a problem. I could still play games like Skyrim just fine. A few months later, and I was replaying Breath of the Wild, when my left Joy-con started drifting as well, to the point of...

    How Should Dungeons Be Fixed In the Sequel?

    Those are some harsh words. Breath of the Wild may not be your traditional Zelda, and I as well find it hard to forgive the lack of dungeons or enemy variety, but to judge the game on those two characteristics alone is to deprive yourself of one of the best experiences in gaming.

    Your Zelda Headcanons

    The Hero of Time was never romantically interested in Princess Zelda. He deeply cared for her, but their relationship remained platonic throughout both of their lives. After several years (in the Child Timeline) searching fruitlessly for Navi, he returned to Hyrule as an adult. He and Malon fell...

    Are there any film adaptations better than the books??

    I don't like the Harry Potter books very much at all. They feel a little bland to me. However, I did enjoy the five movies I made it through; they are miles better than the books, with much better presentation of the characters, wonderful music, and overall far more coherence than the books ever...

    How Should Dungeons Be Fixed In the Sequel?

    I want the classic dungeons back, with some huge caveats. I did not enjoy the Divine Beasts very much, except for Naboris, because while they were nonlinear, they were also so utterly devoid of challenge that there wasn't much beyond the spectacle of climbing around the insides of a big stone...

    Does anyone else find A Link to the Past extremely frustrating?

    I'm playing A Link to the Past right now, and I've been having a really hard time with it. It was easy up through the Palace of Darkness, but once I got to Skull Woods, I started having real problems. Combat encounters are a huge problem for me, because there's basically no i-frames or knockback...

    Hyrule Warriors Do you like the Divine Beasts?

    It's a fun diversion. There's no real substance to it (at least not in the two I've played), but it's entertaining, and I like the fact that the music is remixed versions of the Attacking the Divine Beast soundtracks from Breath of the Wild.
  38. TheHeroofTime

    What options/features should be a standard for every game?

    Like Bowsette said, many, many things. My number one would also be accessibility options, but since that's already been so well articulated, I'm going to go with performance settings and the option to change control bindings. I'll take stability in equal parts framerate and resolution over one...

    Thoughts on emulation?

    I'm playing The Minish Cap on OpenEmu right now. Downloaded a copy off of the internet, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I support Nintendo and their work, but at this point, they have utterly failed to make their old games accessible. It is not possible to play The Minish Cap on any currently...

    Breath of the Wild What Are You Doing In BOTW?

    I'll be finishing Breath of the Wild tomorrow. I have every shrine, every Divine Beast, every stage of Trial of the Sword, every part of the Champions' Ballad complete. I'm just going to do a little bit of item hunting and armor upgrading, then it's off to face Ganon.

    Did You Buy Any of the Next Gen Consoles?

    I'm a Nintendo purist, and I've never found the other console's exclusives that interesting. I barely have time to play Zelda, Metroid and Fire Emblem, let alone the occasional outlier like Skyrim and hopefully someday Dark Souls, so I stick to my Nintendo consoles. The only two games that have...

    Nintendo What Are Your Hopes for Nintendo's Next Gen Console?

    Personally, I don't care about 4K or any of that. I also never really use the handheld mode for the Switch anymore. I just use a monitor or a TV, and I miss the days of having a dedicated handheld platform like the GBA, DS, or 3DS. I still love both of my 3DSs, and if I didn't already have the...

I'm going to finish my second full playthrough of it this Saturday, complete with all 120 shrines, all four Divine...

I have every Goddess Collection book and a couple of the manga, as well...
