    Spoiler Top Ten Favorite Skyward Sword Moments

    Girahim's onslaught is perhaps the only moment that I wish I had room to throw on this list.... It reminded me of the thrill that any game maker (or hacker) experiences when they cause a mass spawning of enemies, just for the sake of looking cool. I was reminded of the Lord of the Rings. Despite...

    Spoiler Top Ten Favorite Skyward Sword Moments

    Hello, Zelda Dungeon Community! I have finally decided to make my long overdue return to this forum. My absence as of late is mostly on account of my lack of time, as well as my overall vow to abstain from any online Zelda discussion until I had completed Skyward Sword (this, of course, was an...

    How Long Until We Get a Female Link?

    Though the idea would intrigue me, I feel that it likely would not sit well with most players. I, quite frankly, would love to see variation in the gender of Link, whether it be an option to play as a female or it being standard in the game. Even so, many fans would not enjoy this. There are...

    WW-Wii U Teleportation Cauldron

    I certainly hope there is some form of faster transportation through the dungeons. It can grow rather annoying having to traverse the same corridors again simply because I exited the game. Each game does seem to have its own unique way of allowing for easier routes, wether it be spells, warps...

    Why Do Most Games Begin with Link Waking Up?

    I suppose it is a rather symbolic occurance in both that Link is prepared to awaken as the next chosen hero, and that we, also, are prepared to awaken as Link. Whether Nintendo is aware of it or not, I find it a perfect start to the games. As said before, if nothing else, he won't be getting...

    Ocarina of Time Water Temple Overrated?

    I, quite frankly, found the Water Temple to be a bit of a relief from the ususal Ocarina of Time temples. Not only was it relatively straight forward (if you understand the dungeon's layout), but the enemies were scarce and the puzzles were few. Yes, there is (apparently, though I have never...

    Will We Ever See Ganon Again?

    Whether we particularly enjoy his presence or not, Ganondorf has shown himself as a series staple of sorts. The bearer of the Triforce of Power and he who invaded the Sacred Realm makes him an extremely powerful asset in the series canon. As it has been said several times above, the King of Evil...

    A Quote That I Need Just Ran Off into the Lost Woods....

    Thankee! I, quite frankly, was unaware that such a portion of the site even existed. I've already sifted through most of OoT, searching for various possible keywords, though have not yet found it. I suppose I shall check the other games now. Thus, the search begins...

    A Quote That I Need Just Ran Off into the Lost Woods....

    I apologize for this random (and extremely shallow topic), but I have a question that has plagued me for some time now. I am currently writing a "prototype" sort of article, and have need for a specific in game quote that I cannot find anywhere. The quote itself concerns what would happen if...

    Does Waking the Winds Mess Up Trade?

    Hehehe.... I suppose this is one of those moments where the gamer is to "suspend their disbelief". However, there are multiple likely answers. The first is by far the most obvious possibility, being that the Wind itself only flows in that direction for Link's immediate area. Consider it a single...

    Why Doesnt Link Ever Have Parents...?¿

    Well, firstly, Link does have parents. We simply are not shown them due to circumstances within the story (he had to come from somewhere). The technical reason is simply because Nintendo chose to write it that way, but it certainly does have an effect open the psychology of the game itself...

    Scares?

    Firstly, I must point out (as I often do when discussing such things) that "fear" itself is subjective- what one person may find to be simply terrifying may only be a simple chill to another. Either way, there is a definate possibility that at least one part of the game will contain some sort of...

    You Know You've Been Playing Zelda Too Long/are a Zelda Fan When...

    That is actually quite true. I suppose I should have worded it more along the lines of "you have fully convinced yourself that you are Link". 124. You have, at least, considered downloading Zelda Classic. 125. You have downloaded Zelda Classic. 126. (In response to 111) You find a need to spell...

    You Know You've Been Playing Zelda Too Long/are a Zelda Fan When...

    102. You have, at one time, considered yourself Link. 103. You have a tendency to nod, as opposed to replying aloud. 104. You accept advice and learn rumors from strangely painted stones. 105. Each day, you half expect some mystic event to occur which requires you to enter a great quest. 106...

    You Know You've Been Playing Zelda Too Long/are a Zelda Fan When...

    I'd love to see this in video form. The Deku Tree one reminds me of a long Zelda parody I once watched, in which Link was a confused Zelda player in modern times. While walking out of a building, a tree starts talking of an epic quest. After receiving the instructions, he runs off. The camera...

    I suppose people normally do grunt in such a manner, but I suppose I should have said "unnecessarily". I often find myself shouting aloud whenever moving off of the ground (in a manner much akin to Link in OoT). Feel free to contribute to the list! 51. You've considered constructing a personal...

    I will admit that this is not the first time I have made such a thread, but never before a Zelda one. It is inevitable that I am not the first to have done this, but I don't recall seeing any of these lately. I suppose I shall begin. I admit that most, if not all, of these apply to me. Feel free...

    Anyone else Really Hoping for Hard Bosses?

    I suppose I will regret it in the future, but I'm actually wanting a boss that is akin to Moldorm- one that will seem quite simple, but quickly grow in a level of annoyance that will eventually result in the violent tossing of one's controller. I actually want to have to pass through several...

    Spoiler 10th Enemy Has The Bomb

    Hmmm.... I always though that "Eastmost Peninsula is the Secret" referred to the Triforce being in the Easternmost area of the dungeon. However, that particular one has multiple possibly meanings, so consider it "universal advice". I suppose bad translations are not bad things at all. I would...

    Ocarina of Time Ocarina 3D - The 3D is Not Standing Out (Literally)

    I'll have to download the Luigi's Mansion trailer (was far too lazy at the time). I suppose it is that "3D" really can have multiple definitions. Either way, I'm certain you'll have your pop out effect for at least one moment in the game. Remember, we haven't yet seen all of the shots from OoT. ;)

    Ocarina of Time Ocarina 3D - The 3D is Not Standing Out (Literally)

    I would have to agree with the two above posts. Upon download, I immediately watched the video. The 3D effect (which I, after originally purchasing the system, found to be rather blurry at times. This lasted for only the first few hours with the system.) was stunning. Of course, popping out is a...

    Ocarina of Time OOT PRONOCIATION Questions

    I suppose, much like the way we view Link, it is truly up to the player to detirmine how to pronounce each name. I, though I know the official pronounciation of Ocarina is "Ah kar ee nah", I've always pronounced it as "Oh kar ee nah". I suppose it is for nostalgia's sake. Epona has always been...

    The Value of Nothing: Were the Vast Empty Oceans of Wind Waker Truly a Bad Thing?

    SotC is another one of those games that I haven't yet had the pleasure of playing. Either way, this "Dead space" is often an essential ingredient in a game (depending upon the desired effect). It merely has to be balanced by the world around it.

    The Value of Nothing: Were the Vast Empty Oceans of Wind Waker Truly a Bad Thing?

    Suddenly, the great cloth above you unfurls like a mammoth scroll. The wind siezes its opportunity, grasping the vulnerable sail and pushing with a ceaseless force onwards.

    Is Demon Lord Ghirahim More Intimidating

    I would not expect anyone to to be frightened by the game itself (I would certainly hope no one cowers before the might of the Wii's green glow). I do have no doubt that he was designed to be an intimidating character, as are most villains. However, from what I've seen of him, this is not...

    Is Demon Lord Ghirahim More Intimidating

    I suppose it was the wrong wording when I said "surprise". What I meant is, when we see him, his appearance really doesn't scare us. He looks far too much like an average Hylian with far too much makeup and rather large eyes. His build is not daunting, and his manner does not strike fear into...

    Is Demon Lord Ghirahim More Intimidating

    I would have to agree that "intimidating" truly isn't the best word for him. He seems far too humanlike, taking away any aspect of true surprise. Though I wouldn't call Ganondorf intimidating either, one at least got the sense that he was quite powerful. Ghirahim seems to be almost pawnlike- one...

    Majora's Mask Gyorg Battle- Easier Way to Beat It

    It seems like it is worth a try. I, too usually used the "swim into its side" strategy for that fight, and I must say- it works quite well. Gyorg really is one of those bosses that you try a combination of every possible strategy at once and, if you manage to defeat it, you wonder how it...

    My opinions on the 3DS are mixxed. Firstly, I will proudly state that I purchased it immediately upon release. The 3D affect is truely stunning, though far from the reason I bought the system. I spent the first few days with it playing the various AR games, creating Miis, and blasting away the...

    Zelda Title Screen Cinema

    The Title Screen is always filled with both beautiful scenery and fitting music. I've sat for long whiles watching the title screen repeatedly. They are often that moving.

    Ocarina of Time Did You Really Find the Water Temple As Hard As People Say?

    I was certainly aware of the hype when I first entered the Water Temple. It was not a fear of difficulty that overshadowed the game, but rather, the possibility of not being able to proceed (I had heard that if you used your keys improperly, you may have to reset you entire game). Even so, I...

    Ocarina of Time What Was Your Biggest Fail or Death?

    It's difficult to say for OoT. Perhaps when I was fighting Keese in the Sun Song room, did a jump attack, hit the wall, and backflipped. Link then become a mangled mess of flesh and sword, his face appearing on his shield, while the rest of his body became upside down. When I pressed the A or B...

    Spoiler Frozen in Time- Should NPC's Do More?

    Perhaps that's a central theme of the series, though a slightly hidden one. Yes, we all realize the themes of "help people, with or without reward (though, in this case, often with)" or "be selfless", but perhaps another prominent message is "ignorance is on the same level as evil- one cannot...

    Ocarina of Time Ocarina of time "Classic"?

    It truly depends on what your idea of "classic" is, but you'll find that the answer will almost always be a "yes". I've always seen a classic as a game that: A. Has many years under it's belt/often a better title (for example, Punch Out!! Nes) or B. A fairly old game that would go on a "Top X...

    Which is Easier? Majora's Mask, Or Minish Cap?

    Firstly, difficulty is subjective. What may seem extremely difficult to one may come extremely easy to another. Either way, it is difficult to decide between the two. I generally find the 3D Zeldas to be slightly easier, as evading damage can be simpler (with the movement capabilities). However...

    Events in Your Life That Remind You of Zelda

    No particular moment has entirely reminded me of Zelda. Oftentimes, when I drink a glass of milk, I do it in true Young Link fashion (one large gulp, then a swipe of the face followed by a gasp). Occasionally, I'll find myself helping a random individual when on my way to do a far more urgent...

    I couldn't help but laugh at the wording of the above- so very true. I agree that (having just completed a "complete" [redundency!] run of ALttP), Kakariko Village was in a state of total stasis. Throughout the course of the game, very little changes in dialogue took place, despite the dramatic...
