    How many times have you completed the Pokedex?

    A whole zero times. I just don't have the kind of completionst mentality to go out of my way to catch every Pokemon.

    Do you want BOTW2 to have some LAHD bosses?

    I'll admit I've never fought him. My interest in the Switch remake kind of petered out, so I never finished it.

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    Well, this is disappointing. Animal Crossing is 85% the same game every release, so I fail to see how a 25 minute direct can offer anything interesting.

    Do you want BOTW2 to have some LAHD bosses?

    I don't think any boss should have only a specific item or technique that they're vulnerable to. That sort of thing stifles any creative approach someone could take to the fight.

    Can you be a fan of a game you've never played?

    You can could a fan of aspects of it, especially visuals ones, but no, I'd say that you can't be a fan of a game without having played it.

    Donald Trump Impeachment Vote Final Results

    It wasn't. It was aggressively responding and saying that my opinion just isn't valid and that I should just learn why I'm wrong. Courtesy should be a must, especially in MD. There's no need to turn any thread into dickswinging contests between users.

    Ocarina of Time completed in eight and a half minutes

    Speedrunning is about reaching the end of the game quickly. The point of speedrunning isn't a casual playthrough, nor is it to entertain people watching it. Entertainment is just a side-effect of it..

    Schwarma (is that how you spell it lol?)

    Shawarma (I knew it as dohner kebab in Germany) is awesome. If you buy it from the right place, it's some of the best fast-ish food you can find. My favorite shawarma place was right across from a McDonalds in Germany, and anyone who went to McDonalds instead was insane.

    Do you want BotW2 to use the same DLC practice as BotW?

    Absolutely not. Master Mode, BotW's version of hard mode, should have been included in the game from the start. Charging for extra difficulties is stupid bull****. Champion's Ballad was a dull trudge through loosely connected memories that did nothing to expand upon the game's story. The only...

    Games you never expected to be so easy

    Resident Evil 2 was easier than I expected it to be. There's still a fair amount of challenge to be found, but a lot of the horror comes from the well-done environmental details and aesthetic. The game was good at making areas feel scary and intimidating even if some part of you knew that you...

    How old were you when you first played video games?

    The earliest game I remember playing is Lego Island, so I was probably about six at the time.

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election Thread

    Calling for a recanvas seems like a reasonable demand given the amount of drama surrounding the Iowa caucuses this year. Barring some multilayered conspiracy (of which there really aren't any in the modern age), I think it lends some level of innocence to the Buttigieg campaign. If there were...

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election Thread

    Was there any evidence of software tampering? I definitely agree that it presents a conflict of interest, but has anyone been called in to evaluate the software for possible exploits? If not, it feels like rampant speculation.

    How many times have you bought your favorite game(s)?

    Most of the games I've bought twice were for the Switch. Why enjoy your favorite games on PC when you can enjoy them in your cargo pocket? I think I've bought Dark Souls, Doom 4, Divinity: Original Sin, and Dragon's Dogma twice. I just noticed that all those games begin with the letter 'D'. I...

    Best Nintendo DLC

    Honestly, Nintendo just doesn't do DLC well. If it is done well, then they charge entirely too much money fir it. If they charge a more regular amount, then it winds up bland and boring like Champions Ballad.

    Do you prefer Classic Zelda or Experimental Zelda?

    I'd flip some of the games on the lists around. Skyward Sword, for instance, is probably one of the safest, blandest games in the series, but has an iffy motion control setup. I'd categorize it as super traditional.

    Should Breath of the Wild 2 drop the stamina system altogether?

    I think returning in its current state from BotW is just fine. Stamina management in that game worked fine as a way of making the certain areas require more commitment and planning to attack. The last thing it should do is go back to how it was handled in SS, where it was handed incredibly poorly.

    Do You Use An E-reader?

    Everyday. While the feel of a physical book is nice, nothing beats being able to carry hundreds of books in my pocket at once. It's one thing to bring a book with you somewhere, but it's another to decide you'd rather read something else and not be limited by the number of books you brought with...

    Are you getting Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Day 1?

    Can't say I'm really excited for it. Animal Crossing games don't change that much between releases, so if you've played New Leaf, you've played 85% of New Horizons.

    I don't understand why so many love ALTTP

    At least for myself, ALTTP that made Hyrule as colorful and vivid in game as it was in the comics and the cartoon. Until the SNES, Zelda was confined to the realm of 8-bit, and 8-bit isn't the prettiest kind of graphical rendering.

    Un-sequel-able games?

    I would have considered the original Bioshock a game that didn't need a sequel. It was a well told, self-contained story that tied up all its loose ends, but then they went and made a sequel.

    Donald Trump Impeachment Vote Final Results

    :) It's all good. I'm pretty sure that her tearing up the speech was symbolic of her disdain for Trump himself and not for any of the people he might have mentioned in the speech itself. In that same light, I wouldn't necessarily say that Trump is fighting for any particular freedom, at least...

    Donald Trump Impeachment Vote Final Results

    Nancy Pelosi didn't tear up a baby or a veteran at the end of the State of the Union. She tore up a piece of paper. It's up for debate whether or not the New York Times has any kind of political bias. The publishing of something that doesn't coincide with Trump's narrative of events doesn't...

    Donald Trump Impeachment Vote Final Results

    I would ask this. Donald Trump doesn't carry himself very well on television (or in real life, given his posture). He tends towards personal attacks, abrasiveness, and derogatory remarks towards those who don't strictly align with his ideas (his constant attacks on news outlets such as the New...

    Speaking specifically of the PS4, did those revisions really make much of a difference? I know the slim reduced form factor, but the Pro seemed like a bit of a luxury upgrade.

    System Shock 3

    Oof. I didn't know it was being developed by the same folks behind Underworld Ascendant. That dampens my enthusiasm a bit, since that game was received so poorly. I've heard slightly better things about it since it was patched, but nothing enthusiastically positive. That being said, I'd defend...

    Switch Successor Wishlist

    I think the idea of a Switch Pro is fine, but I don't think it's going to make much of a difference to games. Developers will always make games with the lowest common denominator--the vanilla Switch--in mind. It wouldn't pay to develop exclusively for stuff like the New 3DS, PS4 Pro, or Xbox One...

    All good. It's definitely not an easy game to jump into, but I think the actual world structure is something Zelda fans might like.

    How old were you when your family got internet?

    Eight or nine, methinks. Back then, the internet was just for Runescape, Runescape forums, and quest guides for Runescape. Young me didn't think anymore of it.

    Yeah, I saw them mention of Souls-like stuff, but Dark Souls 1 is without a doubt the closest kind of game to something like Twilight Princess.

    Recommend Me Modern Action/Adventure Titles

    If only it were more consistent. I love the combat and grabbing system, but how the game works out damage resistance can either make it incredibly easy or incredibly hard. And if only the story were more consistently good. It has some powerful moments, but it spends too much time on monotonous...

    Recommend Me Modern Action/Adventure Titles

    Dark Souls is definitely my recommendation if you're looking for something closer in design to Zelda (or at least what I remember Zelda being like when I was younger). It's a hostile world, the dungeons are dangerous, and the bosses are out to kill you. It ain't for the faint of heart, but it's...

    Does anyone play any FPS games? If so, which ones?

    My favorite is definitely Prey (2). It's a tense survival game aboard a derelict space station where you aren't quite as alone ad you'd like. And it lets you turn into a teacup.

    Would you be interested in a Zelda Ocarina of Time remake again?

    While definitely a landmark for the time, Ocarina of Time has aged poorly. It features an empty overworld, cardboard characters, and was the beginning of Railroad Zelda. Remaking it to fit in with the precedent set by Breath of the Wild would require it to be changed so much that it would barely...

    Spoiler Star Wars: Fallen Order

    Yeah, the super fast ones aren't super fun to fight. I preferred fighting the ones wielding the big two-handed blades. It gave made each blow feel more impactful and less like you had to dodge constantly or rely on the slow ability. It doesn't feel like any Star Wars game has managed to nail...

    Spoiler Star Wars: Fallen Order

    I liked the Purge Trooper fights. They felt more in line with the kind lightsaber combat that the game seems like it wants to have. They're more methodical fights you win with careful side-stepping, parrying, and precision strikes. Honestly, I looked forward to fighting them far more than the...

    VikzeLink's Weekly Sunday Poll 392!

    Not particularly. Wind Waker used the Great Sea to help mask loading screens. Unfortunately, this also resulted in it being incredibly empty. I'd rather have a denser world with less pointing a ship in one direction and letting the game play itself.
