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.

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.

I have a dreamcast.

I've recently realized a goal I want to aim for, and it couldn't have come at a better time than the New Year.  I'm getting the fuck out of Canada and moving to Europe at earliest convenience.

That's exciting. Seriously, such a huge adjustment is worthy of a huge celebration and I tip me glass to you. What country?

Thanks Van-g.  :)

Not sure in terms of country and all, but this is the first idea I've had in a while about my future I've felt sure and confident about.  At least I''m not leaving behind a huge legacy and about 200 of my closest friends.  Dicey feels... good. :D

That seems like an interesting thought and something I have considered too, but I would never know what to do about my stuff, finding a job/house, etc.  Hope it works out for ya, or at least figure out what you wanna do.  At least wherever you go you can tell people you're Canadian and have a lot less hate directed your way.

Setting up shop will undoubtedly be the hardest part, but I'll manage, I've worked through a lot of tough bullshit so far.  I'm gonna do well in school ( :D don't do drugs either, kids!).  But I have a reason and all that now, and something to work towards.  My theory: if I start in a poor-European country, it'll be an easier start as I look more qualified in comparison.

...and yeah, I won't lie, I look forward to saying "I'm Canadian", than American. : /

my buddy kev and i are going to do a gaming-thon tomorrow. gonna play a shitty game through

This one, yeah?

Yeah, I'm really hoping we see the end of hand holding partner characters after this, or at least it reduced down to aiding new players at the start of the game and not through the entire thing and focusing more on developing them as characters period. I kinda wish Aonuma didn't have that 'going on an adventure alone is boring' thought process because the feel is entirely different with other characters and without, but if we HAVE to have someone like this they should be a developed character like Midna, not just some guide who practically belittles the player.

Midna was perfect.  She only helped you with a boss after it hits you and you don't get what the hell you're doing.  I thought Skyward Sword played the Nintendo-hand-holding card too often.
