    Super Smash Bros. for 3DS DGN Tournament 1

    Justac00lguy and I played our matches just now. I won 2-0. We had to restart the second match because of a strange glitch that caused items to appear even when the items were all turned off. Has this happened to anyone else? Luckily, the game started cooperating after that, and we finished with...

    General Zelda Which Game Would You Consider Yourself to Be an "Expert" In?

    I would consider myself very well versed in MC. It was the first Zelda game I myself bought (my older brother had purchased any previous ones I'd played), and as such, it felt like the first Zelda game that was really mine. I really liked the shrinking mechanic, the story, and the difficulty was...

    Super Smash Bros. for 3DS DGN Tournament 1

    GoroLink and I played our matches just now: I won 2-0. The first match saw me as Charizard and him as Captain Falcon (I nearly had to do some push ups after that match) on Pictochat omega. After that, I switched to Lucina; he switched to Link and chose the Warioware omega as the stage. Thanks...

    Which Games Do You Have Intentions on Completing, but Never Do?

    Oh good lord, there are way too many games I've done this with, especially recently. Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze are the two latest games that I've lost interest in around halfway through. For some reason, platformers just haven't been able to hold my...

    What Musical Instrument Would You Like To See?

    I hope there is some sort of musical instrument for Link in the game. I always enjoyed pulling out the ocarina to perform various magic-related things in OoT. Sure, Epona could have been summoned by Link whistling, but playing a song to do the same made it feel more interesting and more...

    Midora - Zelda Inspired Game on Kickstarter

    That would be cool, but since most of these Zelda-inspired indie games are done by relatively small teams, I think a full scale 3D game would be out of their scope most of the time. Also, can you point me to these 2D Zelda-esque games you're talking about (if they're any good)?

    Midora - Zelda Inspired Game on Kickstarter

    There was some concern about that that the creators addressed in one of their updates on the Kickstarter page. The gameplay is significantly different, it seems, and they did a side-to-side comparison of some of their sprites and ones from Minish Cap, and they are different. It does look very...

    Midora - Zelda Inspired Game on Kickstarter

    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you had seen anything about a cool looking new game on Kickstarter called "Midora". It's heavily influenced by the Zelda series, and its visuals are inspired by (and very similar to) Minish Cap's. It looks pretty cool so far. It's still in the funding period...

    Which Book Are You Currently Reading?

    I am reading a strange little book called "The Book of Lost Things". I hadn't heard of it before, but someone recommended it to me, and I figured I'd try it out. It incorporates lots of fairy-tales and myths, twisting them around to fit its own story, and it's pretty interesting so far.

    Recommended 3DS Games

    I'm not sure how familiar you are with the Fire Emblem series, but keep in mind that Fire Emblem will be a relatively slow paced game, especially compared to the crazy action of Kid Icarus. I don't know about anyone else, but I know I'm usually only in the mood for one of those types of games at...

    Ocarina of Time Why Do We Love OoT So Much?

    There are always certain games that pull you in when you play them for the first time. Whether it's the gameplay (Zelda, Mario), the great atmosphere (Metroid), or the amazing story (Fire Emblem, lots of JRPGs), something about it just clicks. For lots of gamers, the N64 era was great for these...

    Skyward Sword How Does Demise Resemble Ganon?

    What justac00lguy said pretty much covers it. There are enough similarities that Demise is evocative of Ganondorf to most Zelda fans. One thing I have to add: I've heard theories before about how Ganon might be a different entity than Ganondorf. Like, Ganon is actually some ancient demon...

    General Modern Is Zelda No Longer a Hardcore Game?

    If by "hardcore" you mean "difficult", than I would agree that Zelda has been getting less so in the recent past. ALttP was definitely much more challenging than MC, OoT gave me a lot more trouble than TP, and so on. My death count for SS was 0 on my first run through, even though there were...

    E3 Let Down?

    I was definitely pretty disappointed. The only completely new announcement, as far as I'm aware, was Zombie U. While that looks somewhat interesting, pretty much everything else was just expanding a little bit upon what we already new: details about Arkham City on Wii U, a couple other...

    Best/favorite Sidekick Goodbye

    Ezlo for me. While he was kind of annoying sometimes, as a youngster playing MC for the first time, I found him highly amusing. Besides, having a talking hat is pretty awesome if you ask me. I nearly teared up when he said his "goodbye forever" speech, and his making a normal hat for Link during...

    Any Zelda 3ds on the Software Showcase Tomorrow?

    I'm with Vanitas on this one: I would think Nintendo would put out all their big guns during the biggest, best broadcasted event, that being the presentation we just saw. If they had a Zelda game ready to announce, they would show it then. However, I wouldn't be surprised if we got a bit of a...

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

    I thought they were pretty awesome myself. A little tense and stressful when you ran out of time/stepped in the water stuff/got detected by the watchers, especially because you knew you'd have to start all over again if you got hit. It wasn't really all that hard; I think I only got hit twice...

    HELP WITH NUNCHUK :( :(

    My game does that occasionally at startup, but it goes away after I wait a few seconds. If it lasts for a long time, I would try unplugging and replugging the nunchuk while that screen is still up, and blowing into both wiimote and nunchuck. If that doesn't work, well, try a new nunchuk (or just...

    Good Wii Games

    Any specific genre you're interested in? There are a whole ton of awesome games for the Wii, so if you could narrow down what you're looking for a little bit, that would help. Action/Adventure If you haven't played it yet, get Zelda: Twilight Princess. Awesome game, very long, lots of stuff to...

    How to Pronounce Fi

    I always thought it was fie. You see, when I first read a new word, I tend to instinctively pronounce it one way, regardless of how it's supposed to be pronounced, and then I'm stuck saying it that way because everything else sounds weird. That's what happened with Fi. But then, I also pronounce...

    Zelda In Next Super Smash Game

    The SS Zelda would work fine for Smash Bros. As for her not looking like a fighter, as mentioned by Thareous, Peach doesn't look like one either--and for that matter, neither do some other Brawl characters like Olimar. They could give her a new move set; for example, her up-B recovery move would...

    Are These Welcome Ideas?

    Definitely some good ideas here. Multiple endings: Personally, I'm not too big on things like this when it comes to Zelda. I don't really see that it would hurt (except for the inevitable "which ending is canon?" arguments), and it might very well give you some incentive to go through the game...

    Game Manuals: A Lost Art

    I have some fond memories of game manuals myself. I always used to be about a generation behind with my game systems, and so I mostly bought used games, but I always tried to get a copy that came with a manual if I could. Lots of times I would have to wait before I could play the actual game...

    Spoiler Super Mario 3D Land Review

    Mario 3D Land is a pretty awesome game; however, I wouldn't give it a perfect 10. There were a couple issues I had (which I'm still having, as I'm still working on the special worlds) which would make it a little lower. First of all, I've had a few difficulties with the control. Maybe I'm just...

    The Best Puzzle in Any Zelda Game?

    That's tough to say. I would agree with you that the ice block puzzles can be pretty enjoyable, and they almost always offer a nice challenge. However, I think I prefer the Guardian Puzzle in TP: you know, the one right outside where you get the Master Sword, where you have to move the big...

    3Ds Vs Vita

    If I were you, I wouldn't ask for other people's opinions on this. I mean, as long as you're enjoying it, no, you didn't make a mistake at all. Regardless, if you want my two cents, I'd say you have to look at the games, and for the most part, it's too early to do that, with only launch titles...

    What Do You Do First?

    I get upgrades in fits and starts. For example, sometimes I'll tackle a few dungeons without going on any side-quests at all, but then I'll go on an exploration rampage and get as many extras as I can find before progressing with the story. This also depends on the kind of play-through I'm on...

    Zelda 25th Anniversary CD Reviews

    I picked up my copy of SS 3 days ago, but right after that I went on a Thanksgiving trip, and I haven't had time to even start playing it. As such, I've been listening to the 25th Symphony CD a lot, and I must say, I love it. Starting off with the Anniversary Medley: I'd definitely say this...

    Post Game or Post Completion Options?

    I enjoy having things to do after I beat the game, pretty much no matter what. Especially in Zelda games, because they're so fun in the first place. It's nice knowing that there's something you have yet to do, other than getting all of the pieces of heart or some such thing. For example, the 2nd...

    Ocarina of Time What Would You Think About DLC for OoT3DS?

    So just this morning I read an article on IGN about how Nintendo was planning on having Downloadable Content for both the 3DS and the Wii U: apparently they'll have it ready to launch for the 3DS by the end of the year. Now, the obvious applications of this would be to games such as Mario Kart...

    Some Possibilities for a New Metroid Game

    And I also did not mean that the pacing would be slower just because it was over the shoulder. I was saying that they'd have to tweak the controls and the overall setup quite a lot from what RE4 is like. I'm sure they could do it, but not having played very many over the shoulder games myself, I...

    Some Possibilities for a New Metroid Game

    Well, I pretty much agree with everything you said about Other M. I hope they don't make a game in that vein again. It had potential, sure, but the way it ended up, it took out a lot of the main elements of Metroid, and replaced them. It didn't work out so well. As for the over-the-shoulder...

    A Dilemma

    Alright, obviously you don't want a 3DS. Personally, I think it's a decent system, and will be even better when a couple more good game come out. However, if it's between the other two, I think it would depend on the situation. If you've never owned a Playstation system, I would probably go...

    Calling All with the Ability to Fix Computers! HELP!!

    Sometimes that sort of thing will happen with our computers, and we usually just hold in the power button until it goes off. Then let it sit for a few minutes before turning it back on. When it does go back on, it will probably say "abnormal shutdown" or something like that, and ask if you want...

    A Link to the Past Alttp Super Bomb

    Also, make sure you get the super-bomb before you beat Ganon's Tower: I was playing the GBA version a while ago, and for some reason or other, I neglected to get the bomb and take it to the Pyramid until after I beat Aghanim in Ganon's Tower, and when I looked for it at the shop, it was gone.

    Time to Cry: Is It Already too Late for Skyward Sword?

    Nah, it'll do fine. First of all, every true Nintendo fan will either get it and love it, or wish they had a Wii so they could. There are a lot of Zelda fans out there, and I bet you most of us have a Wii, even if we aren't doing much with it right now. Then you have to figure in how many...

    Metroid Wii U and the Future for the Metroid Series

    Personally, I'm fine with whatever they do- wait, as long as they don't hand it to Team Ninja again. Practically the only good part about Other M was the story, and even that I wasn't a huge fan of. The previous Metroid games have never had such an emphasis on the story, and while it's not a bad...

    Length of the Game

    In the history of the series, it seems that games with fewer dungeons always have more and longer side-quests (MM, MC, WW to some extent), whereas the ones with really long main quests tend to have a lot less of an emphasis on them. That makes sense, because you have to find a balance somewhere...

    Ocarina of Time What to Do...

    I pre-ordered mine a little over a month before it came out, so I didn't have any trouble with this. And then just a few days ago, I saw a couple copies of it at a Best Buy. I guess some places just get hit harder than others. Anyways, have you tried ordering it online? I would be surprised if...

    Link's Awakening Armos Knight

    I did the exact same thing as you: I stumbled upon the Face Key mini-dungeon thing before I beat Catfish Maw. I found out that you could damage the Armos Knight by using a spin attack on him, and I beat him that way. I never even thought of using the Pegasus Boots. In fact, I didn't know the bow...

    Nintendo

    Nah, Nintendo's got a lot more than Zelda going for them. The reason I've stuck with them all this time is that they have more, and better (in my opinion, of course) exclusives than either Microsoft or Sony. I've never actually owned anything other than a Nintendo system: while there are lots of...

    Golden wii remote

    My guess is it will be included in a special bundle with SwS, because a Wiimote is a bit expensive for a pre-order gift. Usually they give you posters or little things like that, which can't cost too much to make, but Wiimotes are a lot more expensive. It would be cool if they gave it out free...

    Ocarina of Time Item Question

    You should only get that when you move the cursor over an item that uses magic. It's supposed to tell you how much magic that item will use (MP6 = 6 Magic Points, I assume). I always thought it was kind of strange, because you don't have "Magic Points" just a Magic Bar. It does tell you how much...

    Link's Awakening - Saving on 3DS

    They tell you somewhere in the game that you have to press A, B, Start, and Select all at the same time. If you do it right, a screen with the options "continue" and "save and quit" shows up. That's how you would have saved it if you played it on the original GB: however, for some reason it's...

    Yeah, seriously, the N64 is well known for quirks like that.

    On my first play through? Then I would rank them as hard. The first three bosses, as Child Link, weren't all that hard, admittedly, and I didn't have a whole lot of trouble there. However, once I became Adult Link, I remember having a hard time with nearly every boss, dying multiple times on...
