    Easter Eggs in Skyward Sword

    Not sure if some of these are already mentioned (probably are, I scrolled through the topic to avoid mentioning same ones! But yeah, sorry if I'm repeating something) - In the Sealed Ground, the ritual Ghirahim performs on Zelda is extremely similar to the ritual performed by Agahnim to the...

    Did Skyward Sword Become Your New Favorite Zelda?

    When I first started playing Skyward Sword I thought that the beginning was a bit too slow (understandable, considering new controls and everything, also it built up the story and relations between characters nicely) and I was afraid I'd been overhyped. But the more I played it the mroe I loved...

    Is Fi the New Navi?

    Fi wasn't annoying at all. Being completely devoid of any personality (having the emotional scale of a robot) was the best possible characterisation for a sidekick who's basically a sword. Swords aren't sentient and Fi was the spirit of Master Sword, thus she didn't have any feelings. She was...

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

    I am currently playing Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, my interest in SRPGs apparently has returned. Though I have to admit that it's pretty nice change for otherwise pretty action/adventure-filled gaming lately. Thanks to renewed interest in Fire Emblem I'm probably going to end up replaying...

    Spoiler Do You Think They Went a Little Bit Too Far?

    No way, they were awesome. Stressful, yes. Freaky, sure. Heartbeat went to whole new levels, why indeed. But Silent Realms really livened up the game, it had been pretty peaceful. Though I never had problems with time either. It was more like...getting caught by a Watcher or accidentally...

    Revelations is one of the best ACs. First of all: it tied loose ends, created some new questions but answered few of the biggest ones (exactly what happened to Altaïr? What about Subject 16?) while leaving something open. It was more meaningful - story-wise - to Assassin's Creed universe...

    Spoiler Favourite SS Character?

    SS Link and Zelda managed to end up being my fav Link and Zelda ever, they were just...charming and interesting! But other than that Groose, he's just so awesome. Best minor character ever, I think that pretty much only proper word to describe him would be "bro". Yeah, he seemed a bit full of...

    Stop Spoiling..

    This is pretty much the reason why I've been disappearing from Zelda sites - to avoid spoilers, because just casually scrolling any site related to Zelda is pretty risky. Honestly though, it's pretty impossible to have a decent conversation without spoilers when everyone's playing the game at...

    Spoiler Impressions of the Game

    I've only played it to the second temple, but so far I'm loving it! It's absolutely beautiful, though I'm a bit disappointed that I cannot Z-target while aiming at enemies. Don't know why they took that out. I love the music, atmosphere and while new controls took some getting used to the...

    All Nighters. DDDDDDDD:<

    My exam week starts next Tuesday and...well, let's just say there'll be all-nighters. I have to study, finish some unfinished projects/possibly write an essay and do rest of my math "exercises" (about...50 more to go). And most likely I'll fit in some more Skyward Sword and ACR, their release...

    Why Does Everyone Hate COD

    I don't have an opinion on COD itself. I agree that it seems overrated, but on the other hand the same could be said about several games that have large fandoms. Seriously, every single huge fandom has its share of loud and obnoxious fans. And I don't think that COD fans are the worst of them...

    Does Anyone Here Speak More Than One Language?

    I speak two languages fluently and I'm currently studying two. My native is Finnish and naturally it's the one I'm most fluent in. I also (like to) think I speak and write pretty good English. Though I get far too little practice with the speaking part! The two languages I'm studying and...

    Modernization in Zelda

    These games mix up medieval setting with some modern elements. I think that in a universe where magic is possible development could never properly correlate with the development of the real world. Like you mentioned, steamboats before trains. But we can see the effects of modernization...

    What is Your Favorite TV Show?

    Big Bang Theory, House, FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood and lately, the Borgias. Big Bang Theory, what's not to like? I love the setting, the humor and Wolowitz's beltbuckles. House, really only the first five seasons, six in moderation. Seven was an abomination and I think I'll end up...

    What is Your Favorite Moment from a Zelda Game?

    Nostalgia's the strongest factor for this, but I'll have to pick OoT's ending. OoT was first Zelda I played through on my own and being so little back then made this ending special. But when it comes to epic/amazing/funny moments Zelda has several, it'd be hard to choose just one.

    Do You Use Legendary Pokemon?

    I don't really use legendaries. Sure, I catch them, maybe even EV-train them if I feel like it, but usually I just leave them to a box and use normal Pokémons. I like normal ones more, they are more interesting (and sometimes look better) and there can be more variation to train them and build a...

    So... After You Vanquish the Big Bad Evil, You Dump Your Gf for Your Horse?

    I think Ilia gets a lot of undeserved hate for that "stealing" Epona bit. She took Epona to take care of her, Epona got hurt while rescuing kids and Link didn't care for her himself. Yes, she did get mad and refused to listen how Epona got hurt, but after Colin explained it she apologized for...

    General Mario Kart 7 Discussion

    Nintendo really seems to love Tanooki tail's design. :P Not minding it though, it's cute. Just watched the gameplay video, the controls were never really a big mystery, I expected it to be nearly identical to Mario Kart DS's controls expect with an analog stick. I'm really optimistic about...

    WW-Wii U Joy Flowers?

    Those flowers are a part of a trading sidequest, you don't have to do it, but as it was mentioned above you can get Magic Armor and a Piece of Heart from it. You just start by taking the Town Flower from Zunari, and then you'll visit three isles several times. Here's ZD guide for the Trading...

    Game of the Month October 2011

    I voted for Batman Arkham City since Arkham Asylum was popular and from what I've heard it was a great game. Arkham City will get good reviews if the devs can keep up with the quality. It's after all a sequel to a popular game, those always steal attention. Though here Battlefield 3 has also...

    Twilight Princess Do YOU Hate Twilight Princess??

    No. I am incapable of hating any Zelda game made by Nintendo, even if I happen to like some over others. It was easy, there's no disagreeing over that, but to me game's difficulty is not it's most important aspect. It had great music, amazing atmosphere, wonderful story and character...

    Your Favorite Link Transformations?

    Bunny Link! Cute, pink and transformation was the funniest moment in ALttP - what's not to like? On a shared second place is Fierce Deity Link and Wolf Link, both are quite cool. Both have stylish designs and are interesting alternative forms for Link. Just...nothing can compete with a pink bunny.

    General Super Mario 3D Land Discussion

    The Official Nintendo Magazine has mentioned it. Though if I remember correctly the stage was confirmed during E3 at the roundtable? One more game I cannot wait for, really, loving that Tanooki suit. Everything so far has been pretty promising.

    Do You Stick With Your Starter?

    1st Gen starters: always. It just feels wrong to leave them into a box (probably because of nostalgic feelings and having formed some sort of emotional attachment to the original starters - Red was my first Pokémon game). Others...really depends, they may be useful sometimes even if they're...

    deleted thread

    People like different things. I just let haters hate, usually they're just overeager console fanboys, trolls or just like everything "realistic" (= new to gaming/13-year-olds). But I've seen the "Zelda's for kids"-bashing around quite a bit and I find it, well, stupid. I can see why people like...

    General Classic Oracle of Seasons: Why So Underrated?

    While they do not deserve being as underrated as they are, it's just a fact that people do not hype over handheld games - especially handheld games that were released back then when GameBoy (Color) was still Nintendo's main handheld. Oracle of Seasons was in my opinion one of the best, if not...

    Favorite RPG

    Fav. RPG? I think I've spent most time playing Pokémon - literally hundreds of hours gone into those mostly because they are so easy to pick up and play and there's a lot of content in them. But a fav. RPG game, not based on play time would have to be either Final Fantasy 6 or Paper Mario TTYD...

    Link: Good or Evil?

    Going around, breaking some vases and being awful shoplifter doesn't necessarily make him evil in the actual meaning of the word. More of a... jerk. Of course killing people is a bit...on the neutral side of things, but it is war - so morals really do not matter. But he is still the guy who goes...

    Twilight Princess Why Did Midna . . . ?

    Midna might have seen it as the only solution. By shattering the Mirror of Twilight she prevents anything merging from Twilight Realm to Light Realm - and vice versa. People of Light Realm punished Ganondorf and sentenced him to Twilight Realm, causing the events of Twilight Princess. She...

    General Mario Kart 7 Discussion

    I am so going to get this game once I have the time and money for it! (Or maybe I'll get it for holidays, but even then I'll have to do quite a bit of schoolwork...) I like the retro tracks so far, just hoping that DS tracks won't completely overwhelm them. Lakitu and Metal Mario? Sounds nice...

    What Games Will You Get Day 1 This Fall ?

    Just Skyward Sword and AC: Revelations (a big surprise!). I've preordered both, but those two will be the only games I'll be getting for a while. Though I'm getting Mario Kart 7 once I have money (and time) for it.

    Twilight Princess Am I the Only One Who Feels Kind of Bad for Zant? ;-;

    Zant was a weak character - he was used by Ganondorf, yes, but he chose to attack Midna, betray his own people. What made him weak IMO was the fact that he refused to see that what he was doing was wrong. At best he was rather pathetic (intimidating, but pathetic still). He cannot stay collected...

    General Modern Would I Enjoy Spirit Tracks?

    I think that ST was superior to PH on multiple aspects (though neither is my fav. handheld!LoZ), first and foremost controls. In ST controls felt more...fluid. Music was better, graphics were pretty much the same except for Link - he looked different. Which IMO was good, he was a different Link...

    Twilight Princess Did You Use the Magic Armor?

    I thought that the fact it used Rupees to function was good - normally in Zelda games close to the end you'd just have a lot of money but nothing to use it for. you'd just have a full wallet but at least the Magic Armor used some of it. (Though I used it mostly in Cave of Ordeals...) It looked...

    Embarassing Gaming Habits

    In General, What Kind of Music Do You Listen To?

    I tend to like calmer songs more than anything else. Though it really depends on the current mood. I like songs that have meaning or a soft melody. But occassionally I just listen to extremely loud and dramatic music. Or fast music. But if I'd have to mention some genres I guess: alternative...

    Pokemon for DS - Suggestions?

    I would suggest Black/White, personally. B/W has so much more content, the plot is good (on Pokémon-level), the game mechanics are good and in case you want to train Pokémons on a more complex level (IV breeding, EV training, all that) any DS game is good for that, but personally I liked B/W...

    Luigi's Mansion Tenth Anniversary

    Which is Better: Harry Potter or Twilight?

    Harry Potter. Mainly because Twilight had several disturbing themes (for example romanticizing stalking and controlling), which - if I remember correctly - none were addressed as bad thing, instead they were "normal" and "acceptable". I don't like it when authors don't address their own...

    Twilight Princess Ball and Chain: Too Good?

    Ball&Chain was disappointing. It was only really useful in Snowpeak ruins, even fun to use, but after the dungeon it shared the fate of several TP items. You never really had to use it again except maybe break some ice boulders in caves and grottos. It was troublesome, at best, because it was...

    Game with Best Music

    Twilight Princess. I loved the dramatic and emotional soundtrack. WW and MM come close second. (Also, OoT, this series has far too much good soundtracks...) TP just had the best Hyrule Field theme IMO. And the remix of Zelda's Lullaby, Midna's theme...pretty much everything about the music...

    Adventure of Link Zelda II: Is Its Reputation As Good As It Should Be?

    I'm neutral on Zelda II. Not my fav, but I do not outright hate it as some people tend to do. It contributed a lot to the series and while it is different from...every other main game in the series, it is still good. The main problem just was that it wasn't what I'd expect a Zelda to be like...
