I "admired" the dungeon naming scheme.  The Fire Temple was the Earth Temple *snicker*.  The Skyview Temple, despite hardly any proper view of the sky, subbed as the Forest Temple. xD

One thing I loved this time around was the dungeon key bit.  Just a fun, final puzzle.  And I thought Klok...kalok...Koloktos[?] was the best boss the series has seen in a while.  Design was amazing ('spesh when he is holding all 6 swords up), he was pretty tough, and can be taken out in an extremely unique way (not with the master sword, but with... his... D: ).  And I did think the Ancient Cistern was one of the coolest looking dungeons in a long time.
(Hey, look, Aeolous, I'm complimenting!)

Given the first game had the completely white-guy name, "Alex", I wonder if naming the hero "Hiro" was them being punny.... x(

Complaining about complaining! D:
Funny stuff. x)

I'm reading for School...

- A Textbook of "Adult Development & Aging"; AKA, a course on old people and how they whither/get mistreated and how to look on the other, brighter side or fix their oldness with science.
- Cognitive Psych, it's less convoluted and not done over 2 columns, with few pictures.  It's also nice to have a psych text less than 500-600 pages. :D
- Medieval Art text, also follows with an Islamic Art book.  Kind of excited for this one.  Should be tough, but interesting.
- Visual Studies.  Different from art history in it's pretentiousness.  Y'know, one of those courses about the greater meaning of what we see in media forms

I do remember enjoying the character back stories quite a bit, and yeah, usually the show knows how to throw a good twist or two in.  But even when I did play this as a kid (I think I was 12/13 at the time), I found being a "dragonmaster" was so kiddish and "pokemon-y", haha

The series, theme-wise, is aimed at teens and prepubescents who don't know the difference between 'complex and deep' with 'fucking retarded' yet.

Perfectly explains everything.

I agree completely, Eusis. And Aeolus, you are coming across as a ridiculous fanboy. Seriously, "the most solid ZELDA!!! console title in the last decade"

Fixed!

I was referring to the Zelda series in particular. Not console games on the whole. Christ where did you get that assumption? It's like you didn't even read the other half of my post. You think I would be stupid enough to make that kind of generalized remark, or do you think I need to include a forced tutorial segment in all my posts from now on?

You can't yell at him for his inability to understand your lack of clarity.  And your post-fix does nothing. =/

Frankly I still feel that it's the most solid console title released in the last decade.
*shrug*

Whatever.  Make an ACTUAL post about WHY you think the game "is all that".  You've done a lot of complaining to any opinion contrary, except provide you own. :)

Vaguely coming off the "decade" stuff, this decade just started, if I had to pick, SS ranks low.  Hope remaining decade is better.  Wii-U Zelda looks purdy.  Want less motion gimmickry.

Meh.

6-7/10.  Too "classic" for my tastes (you may notice I post in real-time combat threads more).  I did dig it when I played.  But, like the TC, I couldn't tell you plot deets for the life of me.

You guys are so, like, punk rock!! x<

Been listening to lots of club stuff.  Like, good shit.  Black Eyed Peas can rot in hell.  Speaking of rot, I think Fergies face slowly is.

Dice showed me her goods so I showed her the money. Had a really good time. Would do again.

I feel no better about it than when I was "especially nice" to a table for tips.  I was just waiting for some guy to be all, "You want a tip??  I'll give you the whooole thing".

Some wet-behind-the-ears hero and a naked blue woman go off to save the world from a villain who wasn't beaten hard enough the first time, and are joined by a ragtag motley crew, that parallels Lunar SSS's cast, as they meddle in each other's problems.

My 2011 was so phenomenally uneventful that I have a hard time describing it as good or bad.  It just was.

Even with one sentence and picture explanations it was confusing. Whoever is writing the story to these games (is it Nomura?) clearly got his calling wrong.

Sure as hell clears up a lot of confusion. Thank you, it fdefinitely warrants a topic of it's own.

Its - Possessive of it
It's - Contraction of it is
Its' - Not a real word

Before you use "it's" replace it with "it is" and ask yourself "does this sentence make sense?"

I typed that on my phone.  Grammar wasn't my priority before getting my stupid phone to type right, hence the unbothered-with "fdefinitely". :D

But thanks. :P

EDIT: iPhone's, the "smart phone" they are, automatically put an apostrophe in "its/it's" whether you want to or not.  It's not worth the effort to fix all the time...   Even when you try to type "hell", it assumed "he'll".

Haha naw I'm only into lesbian Mexijews.

EDIT: wtf... I start typing "lesbians" to the google search bar.  First two choices than "couples" was "lesbian vampire killers" and "lesbian bed death".  These are priority things??

Altar Code F is blast for me so far BTW.... Re-make done right if you ask me....

It's actually pretty terrible once you get further in. Most of the towns are half as large as they were originally, half of the spells were taken out, the dialogue outright breaks at certain points (NPCs print garbage text, literally), most of the Force Powers were removed, and the main addition was a few new characters, none of which you can use consistently until the final dungeon.

Yeah, I'm on that.  The only improvement was the artwork and maybe *some* of the music. 
The graphics.... what the hell happened?  Even for PS2 they were bad.  It's nice to see that WA4 & 5 eventually turned out some of the better PS2 graphics you could find.... mostly at the cost of a palatable story (which turned into platitudinous dross.

More Twilight Princess
Just saw the pretty "lol" moment..  Nice creative twist to the post-boss bit.

Arbiter's Grounds was hella confusing at times, and got stuck quite a bit.  However, the Spinner, the Arbiter boss, and the Ball & Chain in Snowpeak are probably some of the more badass additions to items as the Zelda series knows it.  It's a freaking BALL AND CHAIN!!  I love how it fucks EVERYTHING up in Snowpeak (a kind of tough dungeon, the non-stop freezing by enemies and the fact no hearts drop will probably make it one of the hardest 3-Hearts-Only dungeon runs).  And I love how it isn't a "proper" dungeon either.  The developers must have had fun.
