    Quanity is DEFINITLY Better Than Quality

    Um, you guys? By the time of release, this game will have been in development for over five years, by a team so mind-bogglingly huge it makes the OoT dev team look like a guy in his parent's basement. This is going to be a bigger game than we've ever had before, regardless of the world-building...

    Ganon's Role in SS??

    Er, no. In OoT, there's no special indication that Ganon was created by the Triforce- all that we see of him there is as a sort of desperation attack after the castle collapses. In addition, Ganon also exists outside of this eventuality- the Child Timeline, specifically TP and whatever other...

    Ganon's Role in SS??

    Well, Ganondorf is a specific person- a Gerudo male who tried/succeeded to take over Hyrule sometime after the Civil War. The Master Sword, according to OoT, is hundreds of years old, therefore making it almost impossible for that Ganondorf to be involved in this story without some form of...

    Tageting in Zelda Wii

    In the best of all possible Zelda Wii games, there would be two targeting systems- the usual Z-targeting for more standard enemies that require items and movement tactics to defeat rather than swordplay, and similar sort of targeting- you know when you Z-target without an enemy present, and Link...

    Zelda Art Really Out-there Ganon Origin/fic Thing

    I've been bouncing this sort of mythology/backstory thing for Ganon and Hyrule around in my head for a while- it's obviously not based on any evidence or canon, but it shouldn't go against any of it, either. The Gerudo and their sand goddess, plus their connection to Ganon and the odd-one-out...

    Zelda Art Adelle

    I'm still skeptical about the name, seeing as everyone appears to have forgotten the the original set of rumors from January (including the girls supposed name) were exposed as a hoax, but the point here is your picture. Which is great. I mean, really really good. Of course, we only have one...

    ST Rank Among Zelda

    I'd say just about second to last, with PH hitting rock bottom. It's the whole approach to progression- totally linear levels, totally linear story, totally linear everything. Everything that isn't main game content isn't worth navigating the atrocious minigames that replace real overworlds to...

    Monster Hunter Tri

    I just got it as a gift from my insanely wealthy aunt, and so far my biggest complaint is WHERE IN THE NAME OF KOJI KONDO IS THE MUSIC, CAPCOM? It's just so blatantly missing given the engaging but honestly repetitive gameplay- I'm sitting there, waiting for the fish to bite, or for the Kelbi...

    What Was Your Very First Video Game?

    That would be Pokémon Snap. Oddly enough, even as I mastered the perfect shots for each Pokémon when I was five, the rest of my life I've been hopelessly inept at first-person shooters. Snap was a really deep game, actually- if you knew what to do, you could find tons of Easter eggs in each...

    Pokemon Black and White

    Well, I'm glad to see they've abandoned the impossibly stupid hats that they've been sticking on everyone since Gen3 (seriously, they just kept getting worse) but this time around the look is a lot more realistic- in terms of "less obnoxiously sugar-coated". The graphics have taken a step up...

    Hookshot in ZW?

    The hookshot and its derivatives are pretty important parts of Link's arsenal, as his very limited jumping ability requires a way to traverse vertical distance with an item. It's why we had the hookshot, switch hook, longshot, clawshot, long hook, grappling hook, and snake whip- Link's not agile...

    Green Gorons Timeline Theory

    Well, it's pretty much a standard MC originating timeline, but I'm not sure about Four Swords- in the GBA cartridge, is Four Swords in any way connected to the LttP story, or is it a separate game on the cartridge? Also, when I clicked on this, I thought you would be stating evidence for the...

    New Terrain

    What I'd like to see is an enormous mountain- one covered in some sort of ruins or unfinished architecture that allows for smooth transitions between dungeon and overworld. Kind of an alpine setting- it would work best if we had a more acrobatic Link this time around, allowing him to jump...

    So I Just Beat Majora's Mask

    And I really see why it's so well-liked now. A few days ago, I got stuck in the Snow Temple and loaned it to my friend. I recently got it back, and he showed me how to get through it. (I kept thinking that knocking the pillars out was a bad idea.) So I continued on to the rest of the game, and...

    Code Lyoko

    Man, I loved Code Lyoko. The whole concept was awesome, and if the video games they made out of it didn't... frankly, suck (well, the Wii game was actually kind of OK, but the level design was as boring as... some kind of... boring... tree, or something. Anyway, it was cool how the environments...

    Least Favorite Zelda Game

    Honestly, I can see why Wind Waker might have been a number of people's least favorite Zelda, but it's really a mistake to rate any of the 3D titles so low. Not only does Phantom Hourglass magnify all of its conceptual flaws, but it also takes several steps backward in difficulty, dungeon...

    Why Ocarina of Time is Not That Great of a Game

    Yes, obviously graphical capabilities were lower back then. Which is, in and of itself, a problem with the game. There's no saying that OoT's graphics are "better" than later Zelda games when, objectively, they are not. Games from 1998 have, rather definitively, worse graphics than games from...

    How Would You Change the Warp Method in This Game?

    What I would do? Allow you to warp to any previously visited station, thus allowing you to circumvent the tedious process of riding Slowy McChoochoo across the empty fields. I guess you'd still need it to find new places and transport cargo, but seriously, the game forces you to traverse this...

    Echoes

    Wow. This is really nice- especially the way you get into the heads of multiple characters to show Link from different perspectives. I don't have the time to review and nitpick right now, except for the bit near the end- Link vanishes when she suggests the Song of Healing, but then simply...

    The Legend of Zelda, Should Something Change?

    Ha, um, no. That's more or less the definition of a Zelda game. Or at least, the dungeon bit. Dungeons can definitely be changed up (TP had monkeys in the Forest Temple and Big Key Shards in the Goron Mines), but that's never been the part of the formula that's stale. Zelda is a great series...

    Flaws in Ocarina of Time

    Well, the camera was definitely an issue- I was always having to fuss with the targeting whenever I fought Tektites. The Z-targeting, too, while revolutionary and certainly superior to previous attempts at 3D targeting, was often fussy with mobile enemies- if it was moving in more than one...

    Deleted Cutscene in Kakariko?

    From what I've heard, there's supposedly a cutscene in the Japanese version of Twilight Princess that shows the Shadow Beasts attacking a villager in Kakariko village, transforming him into one of them. However, this is a) not present in the NA/EU versions, and I can't seem to find it online...

    Jump Button?

    When it comes to motion controls in traditional games, I really only expect two things- a pointer for the screen (for projectile weapons and tippi/navi functionality), and waggle on remote and nunchuck that basically serve the purpose of extra button inputs. In reference to whether or not a...

    Are You Getting Any Zelda Game (s) Lately?

    Was Argorok Really That Impressive?

    Well, one of the reasons I was psyched about Argorok is because I actually fought him without knowing that you could Z-target things to shoo them with projectiles. That meant I had to manually shoot the Peahats and his tail with the Clawshot, which honestly made the fight a lot more tense. When...

    Would You Reccomend This Game?

    Spirit Tracks is definitely a good game, but honestly it doesn't have enough replay value to warrant a buy. On the list of games to rent, though, ST is a shoo-in. The main issue is that you'll never find some secret area you didn't see before, like in better Zeldas. Everything in the world is...

    Ripping Off Hyrule

    Yes, they are. Why? Because we have the same villain, going after the same power, in the same world. It's expected to be similar because the premise is similar. It's not a cop-out as much as the logical consequence of a man's obsession with a particular power, which is protected in much the same...

    Should Link Get a Plane?

    Yeah, you can give Link whatever flying plot device he needs, but the real issue is how it will affect exploration. My earlier post aside, the main way to deal with this would be requiring wind to operate it (thus preventing use in dungeons) and keeping most secrets either underground, beneath a...

    TVT's Thread of Stuff

    So I was originally just going to post this old MS Paint concept sketch I found in my Pictures folder, but then I figured I'm not prolific enough to justify making threads for every new fan work I do. So, this thread, where I'll put up whatever I end up making later. Actually, someone should...

    Conquer Hyrule As Ganondorf

    That's a pretty nice concept, actually. However, there's quite clearly an established period of time in which Ganondorf goes about conquering the world- the Seven Years of Darkness in between the child and adult sections of OoT. I mean, we already know he succeeded in consolidating his rule, so...

    Ripping Off Hyrule

    He's a lion/pig/beast thing who looks like a blue Toon version of TP's Beast Ganon. Just because there are reasons for his appearance doesn't mean that his design is a knock off of previous incarnations of Ganon. I'm saying his design is not very original, not insisting that he must be a pig...

    Your Money or Your Heart

    Oh, that's one of ZD's annoying little pointless forum things- posts over around a month old are locked out of editing for, from what I can see, absolutely no good reason. It really bugs me that I have to use ZU just to update Destiny's Hand.

    Finally!

    Well, for one thing, pay attention to Midna's little giggling things- when she has something to say, she's a thousand times more useful than Navi. If you get stuck at the beginning, there's -spoilers- whistle grass that you can use to hit the beehive and grab the baby carriage. Things that look...

    Ripping Off Hyrule

    Okay, yes, it's not necessarily a pig, but really, he does kind of look like a combo of LttP Ganon and TP Beast Ganon, plus spiky hair and that thing on his back. I'm just saying his design isn't very original, not that he's necessarily a pig or what have you. Well, for one, thing, I'd like...

    Map of Game

    ...issues Hm. Well, it's some pretty nice mapmaking, and the idea of a second land north of Hyrule is cool, but there's like a bajillion inaccuracies with the layout. For one thing, Magmortar is a Pokémon and Mount Doom is from Lord of the Rings. You're thinking Death Mountain. Secondly, I...

    Most embarassing/Worst Game you've ever bought?

    While I definitely know how much that fact that the only thing that ever survives something as simple as saving your game is about 90% of your inventory, and you can never permanently help any of the awesome NPCs, despite how intricate all the sidequests are, I wouldn't call MM an embarrassing...

    Ripping Off Hyrule

    Exactly- the actual story progression, specifically, is usually totally unimportant to the quality of the game. However, when you think Twilight Princess, again, obviously you don't think of what happened during the game, what you think about is what you experienced during the game- that means...

    The Legend of Zelda: Mystery of Solarus DX

    ...holy crap. ...Wow. I finally found the main dungeon- who knew that it'd automatically open once you got close enough! Anyway, it was amazing. I especially appreciate the way there's no blackout between rooms. However, perhaps areas that you're not in at the moment or haven't visited should...

    Zelda Wii and the Post-OoT Time Period

    I'm pretty satisfied as to why this doesn't contradict WW's backstory, except for one detail- if there, in fact, was a Hero, why didn't he rise up to save Hyrule? I think, here, you'd also have an opportunity to explain why the Triforce of Courage is split into eight- perhaps, after the game's...

    Ripping Off Hyrule

    Well, yes, the story threads of each particular game's plot typically aren't very deep, as games do have to facilitate a steady rhythm of gameplay. However, many games' stories aren't presented simply through what you do in the gameplay, but rather through NPCs, areas, and game backstories. For...

    If You Could Have One Wish...

    ^ ^ ^ Yes at that. Flying would be AWESOME and I want to fly. Other than that, unrestricted shapeshifting ability would be great, too. Shift into a bird to fly, a titanium statue to be invulnerable, fire to resist physical attack, and... other things.

    Ripping Off Hyrule

    Dear God, this argument has been around since the first time someone pointed out a plothole in Final Fantasy. Games are a competent storytelling medium, and when a series famed for its world-building and story decides to drop those elements, it's upsetting. The little trolls who think they're so...

    Ocarina of Time A 2-D Zelda Remake: A Good or Bad Idea?

    Yeah, um, I'm not really sure what you're even saying here. CZG aside, giving us a graphical/music update for the original LoZ for DSiWare would be a nice little side project that they could honestly just give to Koji Kondo for music and... well, even someone like Ubisoft or THQ could handle...

    Elements do not work that way! http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0423.html http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0457.html When it comes to the so called "classical" elements, though, there's two schools- "The ability to control" and "Which one's most pleasant to you". When it comes to...

    Cane of Byrne

    LttP really can't be in the AT, since it has Ganon, Death Mountain, Lake Hylia, the Lost Woods, and all of Hyrule's specific landmarks and traits. New Hyrule, although there are those annoying parallels that rip off those places without any of the history, doesn't have those things, and thus...

    Twilight Princess Funny Things That Have Happened To You In TP

    Lol, seriously? I always wanted to try that myself- I never thought it would actually do anything, but I hadn't saved in a while and was too scared to give my whim a try. I mean, WOW. Like, it just takes his head off. One shot, and Link's dead. How come getting crushed to oblivion by an enormous...

    Do You Want More Link's Crossbow Training?

    Link's Crossbow Training was, essentially, a highlight reel of a highlight reel. It went through all of the settings from TP in meticulous detail, exploring places like Zora's Domain and the Bulblin Camp with a great deal of creativity. While it's nothing special as a game, if you're really into...

    The Legend of Zelda: Mystery of Solarus DX

    Eh, it's kind of tricky- you have to throw diagonally, which takes like ten times to work. Just try to get the boomerang controls down and it'll be a cinch.

    Should Link Get a Plane?

    The main problem with adding a plane would be how to restrict absolute freedom to go wherever you want- a plane generally defeats exploration by letting you skip to wherever. So that general logistic problem- how to have a free-moving plane with a restricted world- makes for the biggest...

    See the torches to the upper left in the screenshot? There's a door there. Go through and down the stairs, to the right and over the orange tiles. See the rows of alternating tiles? Use the boomerang repeatedly on the switch to cross, then head to the left of the switch to right below the two...
