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.

KH2 was a showcase in Japanese hairdos and ykk.

To be fair, Xenoblade and Skyward Sword are totally different games, the first focusing on RPG more than adventure.

To maybe add to Prime Mover, it still is curious that, review wise, both games are turning out their 9/10's, but he liked Xenoblade more.  Not a good enough point yet, I realize (hang on)...

I'm on the bandwagon that SS's grade IS being attributed to it being "A Zelda Game".
One of the most *lothed* titles in the series, Spirit Tracks, also earned it's A's, 90%'s, and 5-out-of-5's.
The Zelda effect in full form.

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.

On your word I shall watch this Sherlock. If it sucks you shall have to commit ritual Seppuku

It's not much of a risk, to be honest.

Just please don't make me watch Dowton Abbey

I would never attempt to put you into a coma, Yoda.

Pfff.... American. >=/

I think Link get's the worse half of the bargain more often than not anyways *shrug*.

I'm comparing the title to others.  I don't think (AGAIN) this game deserves the 10's, A's, and Gold stars it's getting.  It's not that good.  Any clever puzzle or design has been replaced with whipping around the wii-mote.  The circumstances for the story kind of suck, it has you "proving yourself worthy" in dungeons and trials about 3 times over, tacked on the fact you fight two bosses three times over, and the tedium of flying around an empty sky.  Link proves, more than ever, to be somebodies bitch.

I do like the game, as a 7/10 or something, but then I realized that it was lacking something that I previously enjoyed with the series.  It's strange that people don't want to acknowledge flaws to "A Zelda Game"

And Aeolous, you're pissing me off with your criticism about me.  What's funny to me, is that you look like you joined the bandwagon of cackling fans who will support this game than support their mama if she was in trouble, and shun the hater.  Everyone seems okay with bitching about FF13-2 even when they haven't played it; I play a game, hate it, and get shit on for it.  What is this, Gamespot?

If you don't like what I'm saying, than don't read it.

im 31 and for the 1st time in my life i feel old. not physically but everything around me is changing so fast and i feel like ive been left behind. it really hit home this xmas when we opened gifts on xmas eve night instead of xmas day so two of my brothers could spend xmas with their girlfriends family's....

Alisha if it makes you feel any better I thought you were like 12 up until a month ago.

Maybe not 12, but I agree.  You type more youthfully than you give the impression of.  I'd like to think this translates to you being "young of heart". :D

For some unexplained reason, the Thunder Dragon appears during the Song of the Hero event outside the Time Shift Stones.

It's ok, we still have the massive plot hole surrounding the fact that Zelda, Link, and Ganondorf (which sounds like an evil Mickey Mouse name sometimes) are constantly reincarnated.  And fuck you if you try to argue it, the ending explains nothing satisfactory, and Fi sucks.

As much as I hate adding to the ridiculous "the next game should..." chats, I'd love to see a sort of steam-power era title.... that isn't Spirit Tracks.

A very Special Edit: 'Sheerly' amazing

The irony of Grim's post is in his name.  Beautiful post, loved reading it!

I'd give a tow to meet Keitel and annoy him by quoting Reservoir/Pulp.  *sigh*

This year I got a part time job with people I actually enjoy working with.  Went from all girls to all guys (I get along better with the latter).  Otherwise, I'm sure you heard me brag, I finally decided to move my ass to Europe when I'm done school.  Don't know where, don't know how, but I have something in my life to look forward to, settling-down-wise.  Love to see it through.  :D

I also learned something: how to spend money better because I bought some shit things in 2011.
Part of it being you NEED to wear a collared shirt to EB/Gamestop and I had maybe 1 suitable the place.  So I bought, like, 5 of them.  Fucking plaid was so in this year it was abused:  I bought a shirt with pink, orange, dark green and yellow -- it's fucking hideous and I don't know what I was thinking.  I'll just say I was stoned.


....Leyv got a parasite?


Otherwise, I wouldnt relive it a Agent D. (above) put it, no point -- I wanna move forward and too much school in this year for me to wanna do it again :P

And if that doesn't fly then how do you explain the Thunder Dragon?

A minor depression clouds over me when I think those awesome robot things and the Thunder Dragon are all technically dead.

Playing Twilight Princess even though I should probably be playing newer and unbeaten games.  But, eh, what's fun is fun.

Goddamn this game is pretty.  There is no cooler looking place than when you're doing that stupid howling shit and you see the "Hyrule landmarks" poking above the clouds.  I want another one to look like this.  As much as I admire the change of art direction over the titles, I think Nintendo hit their prime and hit their stride with this.

Legend of Mana is one of those games made amazing by almost everything other than gameplay. :O

Good to hear something positive about TP, i've got the NGC version and haven't played it for more then an hour. Might Just grab it for my next game to complete. Agreed with LOM, if there's 1 snes title i'd love to see a 3d remake of, this would be it. 1st snes rpg I played and the Mode 7 was amazing for a 16bit console.

Playing SR3, haven't had this much stupid fun for ages

For the same reason as Legend of Mana, Twilight Princess is my favorite game in the series, especially aesthetically-speaking (I'm an art student, it matters, so sue me).  I found the game very creative in it's dungeons as well, much more than Skyward Sword for reasons I just said in the SSword thread.
6343  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on: January 03, 2012, 09:46:26 PM
I was surprised that dungeon fit so much to do while being so small. 

Final thoughts on the title: they replaced creativity with gimmick... much like the wii does in of itself.

I'm doing a replay of Zelda: Twilight Princess.  This game's dungeons were extremely cleaver, especially the fire dungeon when comparing it to OOTs, WW, and the first fire-themed SS temple, aka "Earth" Temple (the second being better).  I love the dynamic of crossing it with metals/magnets, outdoor, and even some water elements... it was a proper mine.

I also liked the Lakebed Temple as a more simple take of the feared OOT Water Temple (which was skipped over in WW).  But still clever, but a bitch to get started.
