    Spoiler Do You Think Hyrule Celebrates Thanksgiving?

    Do they celebrate Thanksgiving? Indeed they do. Every year approaching the time of Thanksgiving, the Cuccos start watching their hinds more vigilantly since they are to Hyrule on Thanksgiving what turkey is to us. In light of this, at some point Cucco hunting was turned into an avant-garde...

    Geography of Hyrule

    I've never actually sat down to study Hyrule's geography for some reason, but since I think it's probably something I should be taking a crack at at some point at least once, I figure now is as good a time as any. Agree wholeheartedly---the assumptions you point out are extremely essential...

    A Link to the Past Any Advice on 3rd ALTTP Boss?

    I am bumping this topic on account that I actually do have some real advice to give that has not been mentioned. After being knocked off the platform an infuriating number of times myself, I began watching Moldorm's movements much more minutely, and noticed that there was a pattern to it that...

    Fairy Tale Influence in Zelda

    This may seem an odd topic at first, but with some examination, it will not appear as peculiar as you may be inclined to think. Interestingly, there have been certain entries in the franchise that have incorporated some of Grimm's fairytales. In fact, what brought this subject to mind was after...

    Your Favorite Zelda Commercials & Promotional Videos

    Over the years, the Zelda series has seen all kinds of commercials, from radical rapping to MORE RAPPING to crazed men screaming "ZEELLDAAAA!!!!" to MORE OF THAT to puppets either singing and dancing or laughing while attempting to murder each other over a key and curly-haired men climbing...

    Mirror Mirror |vs| Snow White and the Huntsman: Movie Trends Talk

    I'm bringing this discussion up on account of not one, but two Snow White movies coming out around the same time. Mirror Mirror I believe just started playing, while Snow White and the Huntsman will be coming out in June. Because of this unusual circumstance, people have been saying a lot of...

    Who is Your Favorite Fantasy Author?

    Philip Pullman for me, hands down. His Dark Materials is my favorite fantasy series and I am still looking for something to read that can top it. It doesn't surprise me to see that not many people have read it here, as it's one of those rare diamonds that splendidly dances outside the limelight...

    The Hunger Games Trilogy

    I have to say that for the most part, I was very impressed with how well the movie adhered to the book. This is of course, with a few exceptions, most prominently the backstory of the mockingjay pin as has already been mentioned. Aside from that, they toned down the Cato carnage in the finale...

    Brave!

    My thoughts? Oh, here we go. *cracks knuckles* What I would suggest is, don't trust the trailer. I can't say I'm too impressed with it myself, but I feel as though what I've glimpsed of it still has the potential to be great. It's mostly a matter of whether Pixar will do it right, and they...

    Looking for E3 2010 Concept Art Without Logo

    Minitokyo is the place you want to go for high resolution images, usually for anime and manga series but at times they do have game series as well (if it's a Japanese series, you're in luck). They do have this image in high resolution, dimensions are 3531x5000. However, it doesn't exclude the...

    Zelda Art Zelda Art Made by My Wife

    Hmmm.....you must excuse me for pointing this out, but there is a piece of Zelda fanart I am familiar with from one of my favorite artists on pixiv that this does resemble a little too closely to overlook mention of. Please see below: So I must ask, does your wife often use other people's...

    Bandai to Cease Distribution of Anime and Manga in February

    Exactly; I'd like to further what Erebea and Onilink have been saying here. I would say that contrary to the impression that people on the outside looking in may get, Fansubs in reality do a lot in the way of boosting the success of anime series when licensed and marketed for release, through...

    WW-Wii U Skull Necklaces? I Need 20... I Have 16

    Papermaz mentioned this, but I wanted to second this particularly. If you want a good place to pick up goodies like skull necklaces and knight's crests (and not to mention just super fun in general), going to Shark Island in and of itself will give you unlimited stock of them, because you can go...

    Skyward Sword The Lumpy Pumpkin.

    It seems that this minigame is giving more people strife than had been intended. I had trouble with it myself...I can tell you that what helped me beat it was to adjust the motion of my hand in strumming, although I'm not certain this is the same case for everyone. Personally I found that...

    OoT-GCN I Did the Unthinkable.

    Essentially, this. My friend has the collectors edition copy as well and he testifies to the same thing; the rumble feature is what usually causes the freezing in Majora's Mask, so always make certain it's off when you play. Back on my first playthrough of OoT on the N64, I actually had one of...

    Favorite NPC

    Favorite NPC? Interesting. I'm going to go break this down by game... Although technically Kafei can't really be called a Non-Playable Character since you actually do play as him at one point during the Anju/Kafei Sidequest, I would definitely consider him a personal favorite, due to a...

    General Modern Least Favorite Dungeon Out of All 3D Zelda Games

    Interesting. I think the Ice Cavern is also my least favorite 3D Dungeon, yet I have some difficulty identifying why exactly I dislike it so much. I don't think that there's really any other dungeon in the series that I dread in the same way. Although it isn't that I find it boring or...

    Things You Tried to Do.......

    Heh, interesting thread choice. Hmm, I'll tell you something that I tried that actually DID work that I don't think was meant to.

    Skyward Sword Any Tips???

    May as well mention while here, my two cents is that it helped me to strum with the direction of my hand moving diagonally upwards away from myself and more towards the screen, rather than strumming with the wiimote moving mostly vertically, which I found to be the majority of the problem when I...

    Skyward Sword Where is the Midnight Merchant?

    I hadn't heard about it before, but you got me interested enough to check it out in your mention of it. IGN's got a video about it which I'll drop below. The moonlight merchant can be found in Skyloft's Waterfall Cave, a bit ways in where there should be a few butterflies floating around. You...

    What Was the Inspiration for Your Username/user Title?

    The root of my username is pretty straight forward. As anyone would likely guess, it originates from the girl Saria of Ocarina of Time. What's probably strange is that she's not particularly one of my favorite characters...I suppose I liked the sound of her name. Then I gave it my own touch by...

    Ocarina of Time What's Your Favorite Warp Song?

    I'm pleasantly surprised to hear this much favor for the Bolero of Fire; it frequently appeared to me in the past that whenever I asked people what their favorite Ocarina songs were, the Bolero of Fire fell among the least liked, which both puzzled and disappointed me. See, there are times when...

    Hello Raykay, sorry if you've been receiving some harsh reactions for your opinion. I must say though, with the tone of a thread title like "This Game's a Joke, Right?" it's already setting itself up to attract some negative responses. People are naturally going to get defensive about a game...

    4Players Gives 84 Percent. The Verdict: The Weakest Zelda To Date

    U-M, I can tell you what I think this reviewer was thinking when they played the game: he was likely wanting it to be just a completely different game. Chances are, he probably wanted Zelda to have the popular "HD realism" style that Uncharted 3 and other modern games that probably appeal to him...

    Spoiler Skyward Sword Overview Trailer

    Edge Review Out Today!

    A bit more, saw this on IGN: (It looks like they were referring to Overworld map rather than overworld) [Thread] Their cons list looks rather nitpicked in my opinion, but I suppose we should expect some reviews like this. I wouldn't let this type of review sway opinions of the game...

    Final Box Art

    While I do like both of them, I must agree that I'm really partial to the Japanese Boxart. I love the way Link is actually holding his sword up against the backdrop of the open blue sky. The image seems to have more perspective to it reaching up into the sky than the gold one does, which feels...

    How is the World As Large As They're Claiming?

    I would also like to point out that even in the event of the overworld being as small as you're thinking, in retrospect it shouldn't matter because what's important in the end is a maximized experience, something which a huge overworld may contribute to as your thinking, yet is not necessarily...

    Interesting, but it always seemed to me as though every little detail in that animation pointed to the fact that Link was undergoing agonizing pain.

    Confirmed to Be E10 Rated

    I agree entirely. Basically, the ESRB rating of E10+ does not entirely reflect the boundaries that Nintendo will be placing on the content, and as Majora's Mask exemplifies most splendidly, there can certainly be content that can be considered dark or controversial outside of what ESRB looks at...

    Confirmed to Be E10 Rated

    The official rating does not always entirely reflect the content anyway. Majora's Mask was rated E despite how thematically dark it was, which I would consider it is more-so than Twilight Princess despite the latter's T rating. Also, Nintendo has a way with slipping slightly questionable...
