I have 3, take one of mine.

Thank you.  I will adore it until I can trade it in for my Black and Gold Zelda 3DS.

TP was very rigidly linear, even the trade quest is not only required but must be done at a specific point, not sooner or later. It's not like I want wildly free roaming or it to be completely open, but in OoT you could, say, choose to get the hookshot immediately, or go to get Epona, or even poke around at all the changed/new places THEN address what had to be done. TP, if it wasn't completely optional it had to be done when they wanted you to do it, and that kills some of the fun of exploring since you really don't have any practical choice BUT to go where they tell you. I'm not expecting Skyward Sword to fix that, especially after some I've heard, but it should still be a lot of fun and be one of the only games to REALLY take advantage of the Wii Remote in a way that neither a standard controller or KB/M couldn't address just as well.

OoT had to have had the most *boring* overworld in the entire series.  Majora's Mask at least gave you a moon and tripped-out inhabitants.
You say "explore", I ask "what?".  Zora's Domain get's frozen for the greater half and doesn't "unfreeze", the bitches in the desert won't let you in for a long time, Kakariko has got to have the creepiest inhabitants and foundation for a town to ever set on, Lake Hylia is a hole with some water in it (Shadow of the Colossus at least let you see a turtle in their lakes), Lon Lon is troubled by family disputes, and Hyrule field is surrounded by bear-sized-man-eating Plants.

The lack of exploration in TP is remedied by the third dungeon where the world is opened up to you and you get your horse as early as the second dungeon.  It was more linear, but really not *that* much more than OoT really was.  Besides, not like you could do much in OoT without the Longshot anyhow. 

On a final cheese.... what the FUCK was Nintendo thinking with Ocarina of Time's Great Fairy's??  They're a cross between that creepy North American take on fairy culture and a hooker you can't take you're eyes off because she's so ugly.

I'd wait until next year at least on Last Story, and I always felt Pandora's Tower was likely an average or slightly above average game that happened to get caught up with those two because of an odd premise, release timing, and people just fucking tired of NoA skipping more and more stuff each year.

And Prime Mover's post... I really can't agree with TP, but those are entirely different priorities from mine. Not that I think Skyward Sword will exactly satisfy what I want either though, Dark Souls will probably be the closest of any recent game.

Yeah, I heard average things for Pandora's (like a cheap Wii Shadow of the Colossus with a grappling hook).  Last Story seems a bit a shame, and from what everyone keeps yapping on, Xeno would be sorely missed.  I am holding out a bit longer, hopefully we'll get some news (hell, the translation's been done for them).  I hate looking at the Wii sections where 9/10 games are for kids.  No wonder everyone sold the goddamn thing, and I hope Wii takes this seriously for the Wii-U.

To add to TP's discussion, I'm surprised OoT and TP can even be compared to some extent... I don't know what TP *didn't* do better.  I mean, it's not a matter of superiority, per se, I still play LttP after all.  I guess I'm thinking just technically wise.

Wow, did NoA really turn down ALL of those titles (the XB, LS, and PT combo)??  Wtf...

=X

I meant if it WASN'T coming here then I'd give it up to GET it.  So shmuh. x)

You were already getting into battles a ton to begin with, so grinding was never necessary.

There were a few... either way, I could never max out the... karma grid or whatever it was called unless I did (to get new spells).  That one guy who ate his buds was a pain in my ass.

Why public bathrooms are scary

Digital Devil Saga is awesome. The duology is my favourite SMT behind Nocturne.

...The battle encounter rate is kinda high though. But I loved the battle system so this bothered me less than it should have.

agreed, I LOVED fighting in that game!

I liked that it was quick, since each dungeon required about 200 of these for necessary level grinding.

That reminded me of this hilarious / disgusting flax seed diet site I saw a long time ago. I think it was flax seed, or something similar. But the short of the story is people were showing pictures of their shits. but not just shits in the bowl, they were taking the weird, long poops out of the bowl and placing them on the rim of the pot, or sometimes the seat.


Now I'm sure that says a lot about me, that I found it hilarious

Is it possible that i could unread this -_-

Try reading it backwards.

Skyrim is so much better than Oblivion.

Lots of things are better than Oblivion. Most things are, for that matter.

Except for Digital Devil Saga. What a repetitive bore.

I find people who enjoy Sims ironic for that.

I don't really like posting video game stuff, but this made sense.
For all the VG villains who threaten destruction, this one gets his off in a battle attack.  Ao No Kiseki SPOILZ, but it's a final attack that destroys you, the boss, and everything in space/time (but the UI, really).

A fun bonus.  Who doesn't like pretty ladies saying tongue twisters from around the world?  I've never been asked that, but I like this anyways! (except the Japanese chick... coulda done better).

I realized I forgot about Tales of Eternia, and I booted it up at the last save.  I fought the boss and lost because s/he pulls a one hit kill at the end if you don't fight it proper.  THANKS for that.

Working at a Gamestop, I had some stoopid rubber keychain thing with the Skyrim logo.  Some guy liked it more than I did and gave it to him.  Otherwise: I love the occasional swag that comes with the job.
