I went snowboarding after a Yeti in Zelda. I've now made it to the Snowfall Ruins (at least I think that is what they were called). Game clock is at twenty hours.

Still much in love with it.

Whats going on, is the gaem really not all its cracked up to be??? =(

Oh it's as good as it was cracked up to be I think. Storywise it is a little lacking but, as Eusis said, as far as presentation goes it is the best in the series.

Anyway, I'm too busy playing it to make any more comments on it. Once I get it finished I'll give my total impressions.

Finished the Lakebed (a.ka. Water) Temple in Twilight Princess. It still stands that I hate the water dungeons in Zelda games. The boss was awesome though! Then I proceeded and am still wondering "WTF?" a bit from the plot twist, but not really worried. Now I have to go see a guy named Auru at Lake Hylia.

Sweet game, sweet game.

Should've told her places like Wal-Mart and Target were very likely to have bucketloads of the game.

Actually, my store only received twenty-four copies of the game and they were sold out at around 8:00 p.m. yesterday (Tuesday) night. But I'm sure she'll find it elsewhere, and won't have to pay eighty bucks for it to boot!

Anyway, I've had my copy for just over twelve hours and have clocked just over nine hours...WAY TOO MUCH ZELDA JIMBO!

Just finished the Fire Temple, and it was badass. More please.

EDIT: And Kakariko has changed again, which wasn't really surprising but kind of odd. First time it's been so barren and dusty looking.

Got my hands on a copy of Twilight Princess today.

Fun story to go along with it:

I was at GameStop and I told the employee I was here to pick up my copy of Zelda. I told him I had it preordered and he brought it forth from the drawer behind the counter. Little did I know, there were people who hadn't preordered it there. The conversation went like this:

A woman who snuck up behind me asked, "Why are you giving him a copy and not me?"

To which the employee answered, "Because he's had it preordered since May of 2005."

"Well don't you have any copies that no one has preordered?"

"Sorry, but no, we don't. The preorder is good for 48 hours, you can try back again at about noon on Friday to see if someone hasn't picked up their copy, but I can't guarantee it to you."

By this time about three other mothers had sidled up behind this one and all of them eyed my copy as I bought it. The guy put it in the bag and handed it to me. I said thanks and turned to head out, fearing I would be mauled by the three women behind me. Anyway, the one who was tormenting the poor GameStop employee followed me outside and our conversation went like this:

"Excuse me! Sir!," she called, "Would you be willing to sell that game to me?"

"How much are you willing to pay me?" I asked.

"I have eighty dollars in cash, is that enough?"

"Nope, sorry, but I've been looking forward to this game for a long time. You heard the guy in there, I've had it preordered since May of 2005; just over a year and a half. I'm not going to part with it for eighty bucks."

"Oh but please, my son wants it for Christmas, I can pay you more!"

"Sorry, ma'am, but this game isn't for sale." I stated with finality and turned back to my truck, half expecting her to either say her son is deathly ill or start attacking me, but neither happened. Still I was kind of surprised by the whole thing. I suppose it would have been the nice thing to do for me to sell it to her...but I couldn't do it! I guess I'm just not as good a human being as I might think I am...

As for the game itself, it's great! I had a little trouble adjusting to the physics in Link's lycanthrope form (fell off the roof of the castle a few times...), but aside from that I'm very pleased. I just finished the Forest Temple and am now heading east; I forget the name of the place I'm heading, but I think it's called Eldin.

Perfect, it's just what the doctor ordered for my DS. I'd love an action RPG for the handheld.

I'm excited.

I'm to the Shadow Temple in Ocarina of Time MQ. I'm not sure I'll have the game finished in time for the Cube version of TP, but close enough I figure.

You mean there isn't a hold option for Z-targeting on the Wii? That stinks.

Huh? You can select to either hold the Z button, or just tap it to switch from locked to unlocked. In fact, it's defaulted to holding.


...So what was the problem with potentially locking onto something then? But it's not like it matters to me as I'll be getting the Cube version in a few days.

Ha, I've been doing the same thing when I've been exhausted with writing papers, DR. But really the only dungeons I found harder in Master Quest were Dodongo's Cavern and the Spirit Temple. I think the Water Temple is easier!

I just made it to the Forest Temple and stopped last night.

I just found a copy, but I have a thirty page paper to write before next Monday, and by that time Twilight Princess for GC will be out. I probably won't get to play it until after the first of the year. I'm just glad I was able to find a copy.

I bought the USB Wi-Fi for my DS before I got a new modem that was compatible with it. I was able to play all around the my house (which isn't very big) with a strong connection. Going outside was problematic though, but where you'll be using it for the Wii I doubt that will be an issue :P

It isn't so much that I neglected to check the release dates (although that is part of it), it's just I haven't seen any news or coverage on the game anywhere since last winter aside from the official Japanese website and had no clue when it was going to see a U.S. release. Regardless, I'll be hunting down a copy now.
959  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Yggdra Union on: November 25, 2006, 10:28:07 PM
Wait! I haven't clicked the link yet so I don't know, but has it been released Stateside yet? Because I've been looking forward to it for a while now.
