Yeah I finished the game with like 8000 rupees. Those items are actually really cheap.

Certainly the fact the 5 and 10 rupee drop rate is better than the other titles is a thing.

This game made me think of something kind of cool regarding the overall Zelda timeline. Considering the titles where you can upgrade the Master Sword, that thing must keep getting stronger and stronger the further into the timeline you go, which means the "Forces of evil" of the month are also getting stronger and stronger.

But I believe there is another level to the Master Sword. Let's call it, Master Sword 2.

A fine name for o' so glorious a blade!  May it lead us to victory!

Just beat it.... WOW! :D

Comments and questions:

Code:
Ravio's real identity was a fine stroke of last-minute genius!  Loved the reveal, and makes me smile that at the beginning of the game he said "I wish I was you"!  It provides a perfect solution to how he may have gotten into Hyrule and why his Lorule house was empty (and perhaps, in that sense, why he knew about yours).

I think this was one of the best Zelda endings as well: We get spoiled by the amount of sacred realm treatment (two versions no less!) and the ending was, maybe not terribly surprising, but perfect anyways.

Hilda, despite her lack of screen time, was a great addition to the cast; her plight made sense, and her desperation and anger seemed realistic (I've become somewhat bored with how absolutely perfect Zelda is; she's somewhat one-tracked about saving her people, and being super-polite.  Not that this is a bad thing, but that's about all there is to any of her dialogue... And while she was *wonderful* in Skyward Sword, it was short-lived and she was back to her usual kind and useless-self in subsequent meetings, asking you to save people because she can't do anything but provide/shoot magic arrows). 

I wonder if things were actually going to simply turn to chaos should Lorule have been left alone?  This is pretty damn sad!  Ravio and Hilda would have indeed lost their world in their last act of kindness: Letting Link and Zelda go home instead of (selfishly but desperately) saving their own world.  I love how sad the Dark World/Lorule are, because it really does feel hopeless.  This also brings up an interesting point that the Triforce can actually be destroyed..!  Who knew it was 'fragile'?  I did like seeing Lorule with a bit of sunlight though.

And, quickly, I did like that Yuga was evil through and through, be it him as Ganon or as a Lorule version.  I admire his last betrayal and wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

QUESTION!  The end credits provided a peculiar cut to the old man who sets up the Street Pass games... and he's dressed in green... and he's oddly familiar with Shadow Link..and he's one of three topics with the rumor guy.  Is he a Link descendant?  If not maybe THE aLttP Link?  HMMMMMMMMMMM.

I still think the graphics for the characters look pretty ugly (like kids toys), but the game's textures and lighting were wonderfully used (the snow temple had an especially fine and ornate floor pattern that was especially pleasant to look at).

This game probably has some of the best dungeon themes in the series (but that might not be saying much; how many Zelda dungeons have particularly memorable themes?).  The multiple versions for track was also a special treat (iirc: Hyrule had 3, Lorule had 2, and the final dungeon had 3 versions as well).

Loved this game.  A fine length, an extra difficulty, and lots to do.   It was an excellent adaption of old material:  It never felt like I was really "treading old territory" -- which may make taking on Xillia 2 that much more of a downer later on when it's out.

GRADE: A!, bitch.  It justified the hype!

EDIT: Just typed the name "Zelda" for my Hero Mode file.... yup, it still changes the music (sadly to a tune that is still not as badass as it was for Link's Awakening)

 I know link is a girly elf boy, but I'm not sure the plan of having him impersonate the princess will go well.

ALLEGEDLY.

You get a prize for 999 seconds of Cucco Run.  I don't know for sure, and I'd never care to find out.

But there is a prize for the Street Pass thing:
Code:
Not terribly surprising, but you fight Gramps... and he's got a giant arsenal.

I just finished the fourth Lorule dungeon. Went back to try and get the bonus chest that I missed in the Dark Palace (The one in the middle of 2F), can't for the life of me figure it out.

lol what's the "fourth dungeon"?

Dunno how keen you are on guides or figuring it out or using "Hint Ghosts", but this guy does and gets everything within 16 minutes (three of which are the boss).  I don't know exactly which chest you're missing so....

Obviously when I say the fourth dungeon I don't mean "THE" fourth dungeon. I mean I finished four dungeons.

That sounds to me like it is probably a false rumor that people made up to amuse themselves....unless it is a lame prize like 200 rupees.

My uncle who works at Nintendo tells me that the above is false.

It's actually a Cucco Badge that lets you summon a swarm of angry cuccos at will.

Meanwhile, I got the game this morning and already I've discovered a minor sequence break to obtaining a piece of heart before even getting a sword.

Alas, I'm only two dungeons in right now so I haven't found many others. But right now there's a fuck ton of shit to do, even if its mostly for money.

That thing was boss in FFV.

Certainly better than the bee badge; that was the.... I wouldn't say worst, but I wouldn't even say "good" use of 888 rupees.
