Sorry bud, no. You're stuck.So i just borrowed Skyward Sword from my friend. Can you not use a gcn controller?
Sometimes I feel like I'm quite literally the only person who genuinely enjoyed the beginning of Twilight Princess.Pacing - SS
Just because of the beginning of TP. Those first 30 minutes were brutal. I kept waiting for the story to pick up, and it never did. SS did a better job at getting you into the action, although I have to take points away for hand-holding, which really broke the immersion of the game a lot.
I don't know I felt they were both pretty close. TP had that whole mess with bull wrangling and then the first significant portion of the game you weren't even human Link. I think it depends on how much you like or dislike wolf link on how you feel the intro was, but I am thankful to see botw will have none of that. Whichever one is slower aside, I'm tired of long intros in games in general. Even Wind Waker had a lengthy intro imo and it was shorter than TP and SS. One thing I can give to OoT is getting the sword and shield takes like 5 minutes. Not a big fan of OoT overall but it was well paced.Don't worry, I did to.
Skywards Swords beginning was way slower and had waaaaay more hand holding than TP idk how you can even compare the two.
Even without it it would appear that the wolf segment begins at about the hour 30 mark or after, it has it at about the 2 hour mark before you start doing the first actual important **** as a wolf (before that you are just seeing princess zelda). Even if you are generous and say as soon as you become a wolf the intro is over, which I think is a bit of a stretch given the menial **** you have to do as a wolf at the beginning like going to the castle and escaping the prison, that still puts it at roughly the same length of SS when SS allows you to be human and go right to the first dungeon fairly quickly. It's pretty hard to argue that TPs intro is shorter given on the short side it's roughly the same, and it can be argued it's anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour longer. I think it's pretty extreme to have such a long time in between starting the game and actually being able to start heading towards the first dungeon. Like I said even WW has a long intro and it's comparatively much shorter. Any game with an intro longer than an hour is much too long.I don't really feel like the wolf segment counts as the intro but I guess that's just my opinion.
To check times, I just looked at a random let's play on YouTube. It took them about an hour to become wolf, an hour and a half to be human. I have a hard time justifying that wolf isn't part of the intro, I think most people would consider that first wolf bit to be intro. But even without it, that's an hour. Too long. At best SS and TP are roughly the same length in terms of their intros. More hand holding for SS for sure but they are both too long.No wonder you think the intro is long if it takes you an hour and a half to turn into the wolf
