    Links Hair.

    Whenever I see dark-haired Link, all I can think of is "Excuuuuuuse me, Princess!" Maybe Nintendo was trying to leave that behind when they made him blond/pink. :P

    Has Anyone Noticed This?

    O_o Geez, I can't believe I've never noticed that before. I'm trying to think of what else it could be, but I've got nothing. I'm surprised that Nintendo let something that remotely looks like a hanging through.

    Skyward Sword's Ratings

    I completely agree that an M rating would be disastrous for SS. Zelda is more known for the sense of adventure and occasional lighthearted humor than for gore, blood, and all around disturbing stuff. (Half-Life 2's Ravenholm is coming to mind... makes the Redeads look cuddly.) Other than that, I...

    Forest Demo at E3 is Not in the Final Game!

    I was wondering, because the demo looked like it had a convenient puzzle for every item in Link's inventory. At the same time, I'm a little sad because we still have no idea what Hyrule/Skyloft will look like. I hope they still keep the background scenery, it looked amazing.

    Is Alttp Worth Playing?

    If you like the top-down 2D Zelda games, then you must play ALttP. Be warned that with the GBA version they added "HYAAA!"s every time Link swings his sword, so it might get annoying after a while. Other than that, the game is perfect. :)

    Eye Door + Sword Circle = Stupid

    SS depends heavily upon motion plus, so it's not really surprising to see puzzles that support that. In fact, Nintendo needs new ideas like the eye-door that make us think differently than what we're used to. The only thing I don't want to happen is knowing what to do within seconds of seeing...

    How Does Link Get Off of Skyloft and Survive?

    Even if Link were to land in Lake Hylia, the surface tension of the water would break his jump like concrete. *SPLAT* However we are dealing with Nintendo, so maybe he'll just make a big splash. :P I like the idea of bird transportation, though. It would be even better if we could fly around on...

    Where is Zelda? (As In, Princess)

    Hmm... Maybe she's the very thing that gets the ball rolling? I can see it now... Link is chilling out in the sky and happens to look down and see a hot Princess. After watching her for a while, he sees her get kidnapped by the bad guys and he's like "OMG! No you din'nt!" and jumps off the cliff...

    Epona

    Not true. Once you have the Longshot, you can easily pull yourself over to the other side. There's a tiny wooden target hanging under the archway thingy. I think it depends on the layout of the world that determines if we will get Epona back. If it's a huge world, then definitely. I'd be fine...

    Do Zelda Games Ever Get Old for You?

    I got extremely bored with Spirit Tracks. I found the dungeons to be too easy and the train didn't do much more me. I haven't even finished it yet because I don't have any interest in it. This is odd for me, because I've played through all the other games.

    Spoiler Little Details You Want/Don't Want

    I really, REALLY do not want the HUD display to be there when the game is released. I believe I read somewhere that it will change by launch, but it still scares me. In Super Mario Galaxy 2, it drives me nuts how the game reminded you how to do every action with the Wii-mote when there is an...

    What I LIKE and What I Don't Like About Skyward Sword

    I liked most of what I saw. However, I did notice that the graphics for the tree leaves looked a little cheap. I'm hoping that this is one of the issues that gets fixed, though. Link also looks a little odd when he's holding the sword... Oh well, I'm just nit-picking. :P

    Ocarina of Time OoT 3DS: Improved Graphics Port or Actual Remake?

    I think most of the changes will be cosmetic. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo throws in some mini-games that would take advantage of the 3D perspective and touch screen. I'd bet a finger that they're going to put the item select menu on the touch screen to make things easier, since...

    Will SS Be Better the TP?

    That's a really tough question to answer at this stage. I think it will come down to if people prefer the Motion-Plus controls over the more traditional style (haven't played the Wii version of TP, so not sure how that works). Also, I'm not a huge fan of the side-kick walking you through the...

    So What Are Your Initial Reactions Now?

    I am 20. My first Zelda game was A Link to the Past and I have been a die-hard fan ever since. I think I'm in the small minority that actually expected the new graphical style. I think Nintendo saw with Twilight Princess that the realistic graphics weren't enriching the series as hoped...

    Is Wikipedia a Bad Site?

    Wikipedia is a good site is you are just hoping to become enlightened on a particular subject. I wouldn't be caught dead using it as a source for a school paper, though. Most professors won't accept papers that used Wikipedia, and I also can't hope that the information is right. However, I do...

    What Water Based Dungeon Is Hardest?

    5: Jabu Jabu in OoA Don't remember too much anguish about this one. In fact, I don't remember it at all! :P 4: Water Temple in OoT The reason for this is because I kind of cheated and watched my mom suffer through it first (we were playing through OoT at the same time and she was ahead of...

    Nintendo Officially Announces DSi LL

    I still use my faithful fat DS. :) I would consider buying if if there were more games and features that interested me. I only play the occasional Mario and Zelda titles on mine, so there would be no point in me getting it just for a larger screen. I do frown on how they're going to release this...

    If you wrote a book...........

    I've tried writing books before, but my inspiration always runs out halfway through. I once tried to write a book about me and my friends in high school and all the hardships we had to face. I ran out of steam once these very same friendships fell apart, though. I've also tried to write...

    Spirit Tracks Leaked Screenshots! (Spoilers)

    Looks like those who thought Zelda on the box art was a spirit are right. You all may have cookies now. :) This is indeed an interesting development. I like the idea of Zelda directly helping the player. It's about time she did something! (jk) Anywho, I'm really hoping that there isn't going...

    OoT, MM, and WW Remade for Wii?

    I don't believe that Nintendo should remake these games for Wii. I would much rather see them put more effort into new material. Nintendo needs to create new games instead of capitalizing on the success they had in the past. Wii sales are lagging, and I think it is because the people who wanted...

    Zelda The Ghost

    She is oddly pale for box-art, I'll admit that. One would think for a major character they would emphasize her more. Yet, the Spirit Zelda theory doesn't line up with the obviously alive-and-solid Zelda in the trailer, so I would argue she's alive. :P I agree with Shadsie that she may be...

    Do You Have Your Own Vehicle?

    Yep. 2006 Ford Focus. It's silver, has a spoiler, and is complete with a Stitch antenna topper and Domokun fuzzy dice. :) I had to get a car that's good on gas because I drive about 35 minutes to school everyday. My parents helped me a lot with the car, but they didn't mind so much since I'm the...

    Multiple Links / Eras a Disappointment?

    I had been a die-hard supporter of the One Link Theory... then came WW. I always liked the idea of there being one Link because I like to think I play the same person in all the games. I have since warmed up to the idea of multiple Links because both WW and TP were refreshing, and not rehashes...

    Ocarina of Time Link in Zelda Wii

    I initially thought it would be OoT Link too. Then I looked closer and saw that the style and clothes were closer to TP Link than Oot (which is depressing). I really hope it is because he was my favorite Link of them all. However, I really doubt that Nintendo would reuse this Link. I think...

    Zelda Manga

    I have the Ocarina of Time Manga (1 and 2) and Majora's Mask. I think I've read fan translations of the others at some point, but I don't remember them too well. I'm hoping to be able to buy the rest sometime soon, when I'm not driving to school or buying textbooks all the time.

    Favorite Antagonist

    Ganondorf will forever be my favorite baddie. :) Even though he is just another incarnation of Ganon, there are things that make him stand out. For one, he is human. He has a backstory and a motive. His every move is calculated and his demeanor is always cool and menacing. He seems more serious...

    Your Username

    I used to go by the name MoonlightConfessions. Well, I registered at a website where it said my name was to long, so it got shortened to MConfessions. Somehow it went it MCon and eventually Emicon. It's been an evolution, but I like my name now because it's unique. :)

    Favorite Quotes

    "To a crisis of the spirit, we need an answer of the spirit. And to find that answer, we need only look within ourselves. We listen to the better angels of our natures, we find that they celebrate the simple things, the basic things - such as goodness, decency, love, kindness." -Richard Nixon

    Was Ganondorf "chosen" or Not

    I don't believe that Ganondorf was necessarily chosen by the Goddesses to hold the ToP. I always thought when Ganondorf entered the Sacred Realm and touched the Triforce, his lust of power split the Triforce. However, of these pieces, the ToP chose to remain with him, just as the other...

    Little Recovery Hearts

    Wow, I never really gave the recovery hearts much thought... I like the idea of them being food, Link needs to eat sometime! Another idea I had is maybe they're little containers of red potion? But why would there be countless containers of red potion scattered about the world? Personally, I...

    Link's Earrings

    The earrings don't bother me too much. I don't think they look bad on him. If anything, it adds a touch of "devil-may-care".*shrugs* However, I don't think that the kid incarnations of Link should wear them. They just look too innocent. :)

    Fear.....it Gets the Best of Us.

    Redeads. 'Nuff said. :P Seriously though. Did Nintendo have any idea how many kids they would traumatize by designing a moaning Zombie that would hump you if you got too close? They are the main reasons why I dead going into the Well and the Shadow Temple. I hear that moaning and I break out...

    The One That Pulled You In

    A Link to the Past. It might have been the first one I played, but it really did hook me in. I adored Link and Zelda so much! I loved how you had to go save the Princess and how you could go anywhere you wanted. When I first played, I didn't really understand how to do the dungeons that...

    Which Zelda is Darker? Twilight Princess or Majora's Mask?

    Majora's Mask is much darker than Twilight Princess on so many levels. First of all, the main focus is about the end of the world. If you let the clock run out, you are forced to watch the Moon fall and destroy everyone. First time I let that happen I got chills and was disturbed for a little...

    Favorite Boss in LoZ

    I would have to say Gleeock. Every time I would face him I would end up swearing and screaming because I'm not that great fighting him. Also, I am a fan of dragons and the multiple heads make him pretty sweet. I think if Nintendo were to incorporate him into a 3D game, he would be pretty darn...

    Boat or Train

    I really didn't mind the boat that much. However, once you were attacked by enemies and had to balance sailing and fighting I didn't like it as well. Even though I don't believe a train belongs in Zelda, I am looking forward to using it. I just hope it won't be linear and force the player to...

    What would you think is the most boring Zelda Game ever?

    I would say Phantom Hourglass. Aside from being frustrated with the controls, it didn't really get the blood pumping. The puzzles were fairly simple and I just wanted to get the game over with so I could see the ending.
