    I Need an Anime to Watch!!

    Amongst my personal favorites are: Shakugan no Shana (Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Drama) Fate/Stay Night (Same as SnS) Toradora (Romance, Comedy, Drama) Zero no Tsukaima (Same as SnS) Hayate no Gotoku (Comedy, Romance) Lucky Star (Slice of Life Comedy) (This one primarily if you've seen a lot of...

    Which Anime Character Are You?

    Probably Hayato Ike from Shakugan no Shana, just because he has a sense of leadership and intelligence, but a lot of his social and romantic attempts fall flat. XD

    Do You Have the Money to Upgrade to Wiiu/3DS?

    I have already invested in the 3DS, which I regrettably bought at full price, but I'm still comforting myself with the assumption that it'll get some good games eventually. In terms of the WiiU, I'm still rather unconvinced as to what it actually is. It doesn't look like a standalone system to...

    Not Reading SS Articles

    I'm right there with you, I haven't read almost anything about Skyward Sword in general. I saw the trailers, the release date, and a couple other small things, but for the bulk of the news that has been released and discussed I have turned away from, just because I hate spoilers. A lot. I'd...

    Make Your Own Zelda Flipnote Contest Winners

    I didn't send one, but I wish that I could have. Probably would've paled in comparison to these though. I particularly like the third one they've got listed; the one having to do with Four Swords. All of them were very good though.

    Details About Skyward Sword You Don't Like

    I wouldn't say I necessarily have a lot of complaints as of thus far; things like save points don't really matter to me that much, because like someone else mentioned, they did it Majora's mask, and that worked out well enough. Overall in this game, the movements are solid, the graphical style...

    Ice White 3DS and Monster Hunter 3G Bundle

    It's a pity they weren't able to roll out more colors on the original release of the system, but I'm satisfied with my black 3DS; besides, I already had a white DS, so I've got a bit of a yin and yang effect going. ;)

    Will Standard Transmission Ever Become Obsolete?

    Naturally this is from an American perspective, but I think over a period of time, manufacturers and consumers will gradually shift (no pun intended) towards an automatic transmission, just because it's more efficient for a lot of people. Personally I don't see the appeal of manual...

    Foreign Music

    I love foreign music to the point that it's all I really listen to. Specifically Japanese music. I listen to JPop and JRock more than anything else, especially everything produced in America. I basically have turned off the FM radio and turned on the Japanese internet radio.

    Most Momentous September 13 3DS Announcement

    I am VERY excited about Fire Emblem 3D. I'm a fan of the series, and I'm raring to get some more use out of 3DS by putting it towards some RPG's and strategy-based games. Also, looking at a few of the screenshots, it looks like the series is going through a couple very cool cosmetic changes.

    Japanese Box Art

    Wow, that is pretty sweet. I've found throughout the history of games released in Japan and the west, Japan always has the better box art. :)

    Zelda Manga

    Surprisingly it's somewhat of a more traditional manga by having these things than being a traditional game. What I mean is that these things are more common in manga in general, and just remember that the mangas are non-canon. And to a lesser degree, some of the other manga contain such things...

    3DS Ambassador Games Are Now Available!

    I've gotten Metroid so far, and that game is brutal. To be honest, it's too much for me. My question is, are they going to release any more games for ambassadors any time soon, by chance? I'd be overjoyed if they gave me a free download to FFII for example.

    Anime!

    You really have watched all of the best shows. I may have missed it in that massive list, but definitely give the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya a go. It's one of the greatest shows out there, with an amazing movie. Lately I've been watching A-Channel, and even though I absolutely adored shows...

    Link Partner

    I've always had similar views regarding the partner. I thought it would be cool if you got a boy or girl that would be your "apprentice" or so to speak, and you could teach them moves and tactics, get them armor and things like that.

    Should I Get Mass Effect 3?

    Absolutely agreed with the others. I would strongly discourage buying ME3 before getting and playing the other two first. Trust me, having played them all, they are definitely worth it if you like science fiction. Besides, there's so much going on plot-wise in those games, that starting with the...

    Dungeons and Dragons

    In college I've started playing D&D with a small group of friends, and I'm really liking it so far. (I'm playing 3.5, just for the record, that seems to be the most popular one now)

    Anime!

    I recently finished watching Astarotte no Omocha, Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai, and I picked up and watched The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (movie) on Blu-Ray. Now I'm watching A-Channel. Has anyone else seen any of these shows?

    Should I Buy a 3DS Now?

    I can't see the 3DS dropping any more in price. Think about where it's at now. It was $249.99 before, and it's $169.99 now. That's an $80 drop in price, which is almost unheard of. If they were to drop the price anymore, they might as well just take it off the shelves altogether, because if it...

    Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts?

    This is coming from someone who never actually played Kingdom Hearts, but saw other people playing it and knows what the gist of it is. Final fantasy is far better, in my opinion, although I'm also a bit biased on that one. It's not the Square Enix part of Kingdom Hearts that bothers me. It's...

    Any Harvest Moon Fans Out There?

    I initially, as my first Harvest Moon game, had A Wonderful Life, which was fun at first, but got really boring really quickly. I think the part that got me about that game that made me give it up was the fact the amount of time you had to spend per chapter exponentially increased each chapter...

    Netflix Now Available On 3DS!!

    Yeah I saw that this morning when I was searching for new releases on my 3DS. I was excited, but then I remembered the price hikes they've been putting on everything in Netflix now. The very least they could do was give us the app download for free.

    Any Harvest Moon Fans Out There?

    Don't worry, there are still people out there who play Harvest Moon. I still play various Harvest Moon games when my sister hands them to me and says "Play it, it's awesome." :D So I've played a lot of the more recent Harvest Moon: Rune Factory games, both on Wii and DS. They've been good fun...

    Terraria

    I was just recently introduced to this game, and it's fun, it really is. It reminds me of Minecraft quite a bit, but it has a lot that Minecraft doesn't. The game itself seems rather difficult, though, in a lot of respects. I had to have my friend help me throughout the entire beginning of the...

    Can You Play Four Swords Alone.

    Yeah the Four Swords on GBA is only 2+ players. You can't play single player, and believe me, I've tried.

    Ocarina of Time New OOT3DS Ad W/Robin & Zelda Williams.

    That is a truly wonderful commercial. I had known for a while that he had named his daughter after Zelda, but as Hero_in_Green stated, it shows the love between him and his daughter. I'm so glad that Robin Williams is one of us! :D

    What's Your Favorite Anime/Manga?

    I'm too late. I should have warned you in time. I'm sorry. :( That is the very show that put me into a short period of depression. I vowed never to watch it again. So is anyone else watching the second season of To Aru Majutsu no Index?

    Spoiler Skyward Sword Girl's Possible Name.

    I'm actually rather curious as to how they spelled it in Japanese. Probably something like フィ . It's not exactly something that would be common to say or write in Japanese. I digress, though. Interesting name, if short enough.

    New Nintendo Console: Wii U

    I'm not even certain whether the Wii U is even considered a new console. It's a controller, yet at the same time it's sort of like a handheld Wii. It has enough features where you can really sort of consider it to be whatever you want. The bottom line is that Nintendo has obviously put their...

    Twilight Princess Why Does Link Live in Ordona?!

    Link's background in Twilight Princess is in question from the very start, considering he really has no family, and lives in a seemingly self-made house on the outskirts of a small rural farming village. How did he get there? Who knows. Additionally I wouldn't assume that Hylians wouldn't live...

    Do You Own an Ocarina?

    I've got one of those little Alto A ocarinas that look just like the ocarina of time, but sounds like a whistle. Unfortunately in order to get an ocarina that sounds like the real Ocarina of Time, you have to get an Alto C. I don't even really play mine because it's just like a whistle with...

    Who Knows Japanese?

    At the present time I'm slowly learning more and more Japanese through university classes. I knew a bit before I ever came to college, but now I'm learning a lot more. I can write all katakana and all hiragana, but I haven't really learned much for kanji yet. The important thing right now is...

    What Are You Thinking About Right Now?

    Partners That Fight

    I do think it would be interesting if they created a partner that would travel along with you and would be able to fight, but at the same time I wouldn't want them getting in the way or taking the most damage. I would definitely need to retain the ability to order them around, whether it's to...

    Machiavelli Personality Test...!

    Machiavelli did seem to have a rather interesting, cynical outlook on society. And these questions don't even really address any of his political views; only his social views. Apparently, though, I seem to endorse some of his points with a 61.

    The Wii 2's Name

    We know one thing for sure from the beginning: It is definitely not going to be called Wii 2. They're not Sony. Also from what I read, it's supposed to make quite the departure from what the Wii brought to the table, so associating the two probably isn't going to be the case.

    Ocarina of Time New and Old Graphics in the Same Game!

    They wouldn't necessarily have to scrap things in order to apply better graphics. It's already including Master Quest or something akin to it, in addition to the new higher detail, 3d graphics. And really, it's to be expected to see remnants of the old graphics in the game, because a complete...

    Majora's Mask 3DS?

    I'm not sure they'll decide to make any more 3D remakes after OOT, for the reason that they take a while to make, and I'm guessing they don't want to spend a lot of their time converting the older games, other than OOT which was a classic, into 3D format rather than just making new games that...

    Rewards in Zelda

    Yeah, some of the rewards have been rather paltry in comparison to what you're accomplishing, though at the same time they have had some pretty decent rewards for difficult quests, like getting the Great Fairy Sword in MM in exchange for helping the Great Fairy. Also, they can't give you a lot...

It does appear as if we're all going...

    Zelda's Importance

    I agree with some of the opinions I see here, namely Meego and Random. From the very beginning they had sort of belittled her importance, because she was just seen as some sort of "goal" almost. You were supposed to save the princess and live happily ever after, or so to speak. I think that's...

    Twilight Princess Wolf Link's Chain

    Yeah, essentially the chain is there for decoration, or even perhaps to enhance the theme of being "imprisoned" in the body of the wolf, but on a more basic level they just never really thought it was necessary to remove it.
